    Please correct me if I am wrong and help me out here.

    -OTA Gingerbread will leave you unable to root until hacked.
    -You can update OTA GB if you are rooted and on OTA Froyo?
    -Do you need to delete any downloaded ROMs(not in use)?
    -You need to un-freeze and have present on the phone all stock apps, especially the bloatware apps.

    2. not sure, but safer if not rooted
    3. delete? not required, since you aren't using them if on stock Froyo

    Cool. Got it. Was gonna wait for the smoke to clear anyway. But i wanted to make sure for me and for others that don't follow this stuff too closely. On a scale of 1-10, i'm probably a 4 on the knowledge meter. I like to read about all this stuff but don't always do the stuff or put the knowledge into permanent memory. I like knowing this stuff but I don't but a big emphasis on it in my life.

    The same basic principles would apply to either phone, but since this is the Droid Pro All Things Root forum, and the OP has a Droid X, I'm guessing bluenova meant to move this to the Droid X All Things Root forum.
