    Default Re: Verizon showing Gingerbread for X2

    Nothing here, yet. I'm REALLY hoping for some serious performance improvements. I've only had an X2 for about a month. Originally had an X and was "upgraded" by Verizon because of some major issues I had with my old X. That X would run circles around this dual-core dog. Seriously unimpressed with the performance of the X2. My X received 2.3 a while back and I really don't remember how well it ran prior, but with out a doubt... and X running Gingerbread is a much quicker, more responsive machine than a 2.2 X2. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    There is a zip over at the xda developer forums. Used it to update mine and its pretty nice. Everything seems to be a little smoother. I didn't want to wait for the push so I downloaded it.
    And all without using a computer.

    Edit:
    Link to the update file

    How did you do it? Download to the SD card and then use file browser to install?

    Kind, yeh.

    It should download into your download folder found in sdcard.
    Then I moved it to the root of sdcard-ext.
    Renamed it to update.zip

    Then I had to boot into stock recovery.

    The app I used to move and rename the file is Astro file manager.

    There is steps on xda on booting into the stock recovery, but if you cnt find it. I'll post some instructions for that.

    the file that is posted on that link is labelled as the current froyo build,, not gingerbread

    Default Re: Verizon showing Gingerbread for X2

    That is motorola's naming convention. It is named for the build you are going to upgrade from.
    So it is gingerbread and named for the Froyo build you are upgrading from.

    @jhowle, I agree. It confused a lot folks over at xda as well. I mean, who names updates lime that?

    Default Re: Verizon showing Gingerbread for X2

    so is this the update or not..lol

    if so, how do i load it?
  14. #64  

    Default Re: Verizon showing Gingerbread for X2

    Yes, it is the update. To load it, you must put the zip in the root of sdcard-ext.
    It must be named update.zip
    Once you have done that, you need to boot into Android Recovery which will install the update from the sdcard.

    There are instructions at xda that describe how to boot into the recovery if you haven't done it before.

    Note: I have no idea what the risks are or what can go wrong.

    2. Rename it update.zip

    3. Load it onto the SDC root of your phone.

    4. Turn off your phone

    5. Turn on your phone while pushing the down button, you will see the word fast boot appear on top.

    6. Let go of the power button

    7. Use the down arrow button till you get to Android Recovery

    8. Push the up and down button together.

    9. You will get the little symbol we all know and love.

    10. Push the up and down button together again, then scroll down to the update.zip file push the power
    button and VOILA GB!!! GOOD LUCK

    mine keeps failing. ( when I first boot into recovery it says

    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command
    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/caller

    I don't know if that's even relevant. But it keeps saying

    assert failed: apply_patch_check blah blah blah
    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.
