    Used TBH 2 part method (make sure your downloads are complete)

    Install part 1 and then part 2 in order before leaving recovery!!

    1. SBF to Froyo
    2. Enter recovery on first boot after SBF (this is the yellow exclamation)
    3. Wipe data/factory reset
    4. Activate phone, but skip the rest (Google sign-in, etc)
    5. Z4Root and install Droid 2 Bootstrap
    6. Using Droid 2 Bootstrap, reboot into Clockwork Mod Recovery
    7. Install part 1 and part 2 from .596 method 2 (I installed the rooted/unsigned version), do not reboot without applying both
    8. Enter recovery on first boot after applying both part 1 and part 2
    9. Wipe date/factory reset
    10. Allow .596 to boot, reinstall Droid 2 Bootstrap, and reboot into Clockwork Mod Recovery again
    11. Install .596 deodexed from method 1, reboot
    12. Enjoy rooted and deodexed .596 Gingerbread

    i actually looped my X yesterday while trying to install these two zips (used the D2 bootstrapper as well)

    Being a little hesitant (i'll get over it), is there a way to get the OTA pushed back through? Or is it already on my phone still after a full SBF??

    Did you install the two zips back to back without rebooting?
    Did you verify the MD5 of the files to make sure they are not corrupt.

    Did you factory reset after SBF'ing? Before applying the two files.

    When I did my wife's it seriously took like 15 minutes to boot the first time after the two files. Also if it is bootlooping did you try factory resetting?

    Also if you do the OTA route it is currently unroot'able at the moment as far as I know.

    So it still doesn't work after doing the factory reset?

    And after the factory reset the apps / data is still there? Because it should be like a brand new phone if you did a SBF and then Factory reset afterwards. Which SBF did you use?

    VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01.sbf ??

    I assume you mean Method 3?

    I've done everything up to and including step 10. I didn't realize the 2-part update wasn't deodexed...

    No and there in lies the confusion that folks are having --- clean sbf to the 2 part tbh download applied in order sets the system up for choosing odexed or deodexed .596 install that needs to be applied after the 2 part files in clockwork.

    Great, I just f'ed up my phone. I tried installing the deodexed file in clockwork and now I'm getting constant FC after the phone boots. I can't get into recovery or anything.

    Holding volume down, camera button and power button UNTIL the screen displays "connect usb" does nothing?

    I was able to get into the bootloader. I was trying to get into recovery so I could try and wipe data/cache but that wouldn't work. So, I had to SBF back to .340 AGAIN.

    At this point I am so fed up I am ready to do the stock OTA and leave it.

    But, I am going to redo the 2-part .596 upgrade and live without it being deodexed because that is where it all went wrong.

    On the thread at My DroidWorld where the links are for the downloads, Method 1 is to do the upgrade OTA from VZ.

    Method 3 is to install the deodexed .596 file if you already have a previous version of GB.

    That is why I asked, BTW...

    EDIT: I'm back in business.
