I recently exchanged my g2 because the camera lens broke. I received the new g2 today and it has gingerbread on it. It is indeed the same as the leaked build but with it coming from t-mobile do you guys think its the final build and how can i root this thing.

What GB rom are you talking about? The Gingerbread rom stated here is the offical or about to become offical gingerbread update for the G2. As for the call drops and battery drain(Rmk said that he had great battery life using the g2 gingerbread update as a base)... I never had call drops. I live in the san diego area where I get almost full bars and 4g so I havnt got a call drop yet.

Look at this rom from RMK, it's based on the official GB for G2:
[ROM][5/23/2011] Virtuous G-Lite v1.0.2 :: Gingerbread AOSP (HTC/G2 base 2.13.531.8)

i tested CM7 final and latest nightly, G-Lite, miui's and almost all roms availible on this forum with or without sense. I also changed radios to recommended, manually deleted batterystats and giving rom a 3 day trial... every time they failed. now i am on Virtuous and it works fine.
