    Well look what I found thanks to P3Droid

    Official Gingerbread for the Droid X2 - 2.3.3/4.5.1A-DTN-117-15 (Rooted)

    It would appear that those who have already downloaded Gingerbread will be able to flash back to Froyo and install the rooted version of Gingerbread instead.

    EDIT: files are up and working. P3Droid let the guys that helped him out get it first.

    Also, if you get an error around 80% installed that says something along the lines of "assert motorola. something failed installation aborted status 7", that means it worked. (yes, an error message means that the installation is done.) Reboot the phone AND WAIT. It might take a long time (5 minutes or so) to get past the eye. Don't panic. just wait.

    I might write up a guide on how to get from square one with a Droid X2 all the way to having a working, rooted, Gingerbread X2. The exact procedure for going from rooted Froyo to pre-root Gingerbread is still a little murky when it comes to if you need to flash the sbf to your phone before you use the pre-root Gingerbread or not. There's been a few claims that you don't need to so far, but I have yet to test it myself.

    Remember, you need to have every single app that this phone came with in order for the update to work. If you deleted any, well, you're going to need to hunt it down online.

    This worked fine for me. I now have Bootstrap and rooted Gingerbread. I had reprogrammed my Verizon X2 to run on Cricket service, and afterwards I had to reprogram my phone again. Not a big deal, was just surprised.
