    Is Official Gingerbread for the DROIDX Starting to Roll Out? (Updated) - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    as much as i love visiting other sites to get Android/Droid X news, i can only trust AC with being honest. (so far)

    has anyone on here been able to confirm or deny this report?

    There were some links posted so you could manually update however they are not working.

    None of my stock X'S have updated yet.

    My guess is the 1st small batch of test OTA's went out last night. If all is good with those we will hear something official from VZW by Thursday with a phased roll out starting late this week or early next. That has been the way VZW had done things in the past.

    Juts my guess, but time will tell.

    I've got 2.3.3 rooted on my X. Absolutely love the experience! Not hard to do either, which was a blessing from the dreadful experience I used to go through with my BlackBerries whenever a new OS or upgrade was available. Not to mention more often than not my phone became a temporary paper weight. Not the case with the X....thank you for rescueing me Droid!

    I got a message to update this morning, but when it rebooted I had the Triangle thing. I then pulled the battery and rebooted. Then I got a message that the install failed.


    My X is rooted, so I guess you cannot update from that. I tried to force and update for my wife's X which is stock, but it did not find an update. Strange.

    guess I need to get back to stock? Is the update still on my phone somewhere?

    Did it and it worked. Initial reboot took a bit. Now I gotta find out all that they changed.

    I posted earlier that I was successful updating manually. Very happy with GB and am holding off putting LauncherPro Plus on it

    dont unzip the file. leave it as a .zip file and rename it "update". thats the only way your phone will recognize it

    SBF'd from Liberty 2.0.1, manually installed OTA and now rocking the new official Gingerbread release, man it feels good to be a DX owner .

    We are basically the first phone to be upgraded to Gingerbread aside from the Nexus brands and that should tell you something regarding our phones status.

    this is why im probably going to wait for root to be achieved before flashing this. because im a lazy bum and would rather have titanium restore my apps for me rather than doing it myself
