Official DROID X Update Detail List

If Verizon’s list of Droid X update fixes wasn’t quite clear enough, here is their corporate list which includes a ton of additional details.  As expected, most of the fixes are minor and won’t be noticed by the average user, but feel free to read the entire list to get a good grasp of your new toy.

If you have not received the update for your DX, check out this post of ours.

Oh, and we’ll ignore the i*ad and i*od references.

    I just did a battery pull and it fixed a mountain of issues. Pandora, Youtube videos, stock music player, were all not working properly (ie not at all) after update. I had my alarm set to go off with music in the morning. Needless to say I woke up because the phone couldnt play the music. After I did a battery pull it fixed all of these. I was about ready to switch back to crapberry, luckily this worked!! MOTODROID X

    I have not had any problems with the screen. I had the incredible before and i thought the droid lacked the speed of the incredible. After the update i think its running faster and smoothe

    The screen is still buggy after update. Sometimes the screen is blank after closing an application and the camera is messed up. I can’t take pictures most of the time. It works when it wants to work.

    I’ve had no problems since the update, everything is faster smoother. Hell I’m even getting more battery life! I love 2.2

    The issue is fixed with a reboot by either battery pull, turning off the phone, or system rebooting in boot up mode. There are also gallery video issues as well I have had with my phone however, once I rebooted the issue was fixed. However my 3g kept fluctuating which does not get fixed by a reboot.

  • http://www.infinitipartsonline.com/ EX35 parts

    Since the update my phone will cut out after 4 or 5 minutes for no reason. It does happen a lot but enough to be annoying. The battery is fine and so is the signal.

  • Tuna

    Does anyone know how to keep the name I entered for a contact to display after I link a facebook account on my Droid X??? It seems to work for some contacts, but others it loads the entire name they list on facebook. I don't need my sisters name to display in full, but then I have another friend with a nickname and …when I link the facebook account her nickname still shows.

    Has anyone else noticed that when you play songs without album art, the box where the album art should be becomes a visualizer?

  • gamboo

    When is froyo coming to the droid x?

  • Brian

    This might be alittle off topic has anyone tried to boot the droidx up into bootloader mode. When I did with the usb cable to a computer running windows xp the found new hardware window popup and it said something about installing (S Flash OMAP3630 MI). Does anyone know what this is or means. Also has anyone booted into recovery mode. If anyone wants to know how to get into bootloader just hold down on the camera button, and hold the up volume button down. To get into recovery mode hold down the home button when you turn the phone on then press the search button press the volume keys to scroll to select press the menu button.

  • Ray

    Ok I got it free for a weekend…. the 3G hotspot was working for free but now after the update it has been locked down by Verizon and they want $20-30 a month for internet access..
    I guess I will have to wait to find a way to roll back to the original software or wait for a work around….

  • GeneralG

    Also only about 1/2 of my pics show up now as well from the SD card… uuuurrrrrr

  • GeneralG

    After upgrading to this fix/patch…. My x is all wacked. Everytime I reboot it, it will choose some random song off of my SD card and set it to the notification tone. WTH?

  • blade78

    I always wait to buy a new cellphone; when it been out for a while. So the all the bugs in them is revealed and fixed.

    • NewsWorthy

      I used to do that but with OTA updates, who cares anymore. I bought my Droid X on day 1 and absolutely LOVE it. I have the privelege of enjoying the phone while you wait until you feel the bugs have been fixed. Meanwhile, I am getting the OTA updates that make the phone better and better. This is by no means a personal attack. Just pointing out why I don't think that is quite as important nowadays. As was stated, most people (Myself Included) won't even notice the things that are being fixed. I was an early adopter to the Storm1. The DX is nothing like that debacle. It seems very polished like they did everything necessary to make sure the launch was smooth. I say all that to say, the water feels good Blade. Stop waiting for it to warm up and dive in.

          You better not be daydreaming about an iPhon't. X-(
          It is nice to see Stevie's marketing dough supporting Droid Life though. :)

          • Chris Nimon

            I was daydreaming i was being invaded/molested, not browsing my shiny phone that looks like an androids app drawer. Apholes spending money to advertise here is rather ironic, isnt it :)

    • http://techdeft.myopenid.com/ TechDeft

      Um, you see ads here? Sorry Kellex, but Firefox plus Adblock+ equals 90% of all ads never hitting your screen.

    Umm. Someone might want to tell Moto that the sun is a star.

      Haha, there's coffee on my monitor because of you! (^o^)

    • Timoh

      I was thinking the exact same thing. Good call.

  • Chris Nimon

    Any one know what “left-hand mode” is? Jab at i4? its in call settings on CM6.

    • EggoEspada

      Its always been apart of CM. Makes navigating easier for leftys. Never really used it before, so don't know how its like.

      • Chris Nimon

        I never noticed it before. I wonder if it flips the desktop horizontally? All right im gonna check it out.

        • EggoEspada

          After you check it, reboot might be in order.

          • Chris Nimon

            Did it both times. Im just curious what it does.

      • Chris Nimon

        ive tried it twice now and it looks no different so i check the setting again and its not checked. maybe its jst not functional yet in RC1?

  • supermiah

    Get a Droid X without froyo? Or keep Droid 1 with froyo? Or wait until Froyo is on the Droid X to get it?

    • stynkfysh

      Froyo on Droid I is slower than Droid X by a mile. At least in the pre-release version. The added memory of the Droid X really seems to help a whole lot.

      • supermiah

        What about losing Flash and Chrome to phone? Worth it?

        • Chris Nimon

          I switched to the wifes DI for a couple of days and had to switch back because I absolutely couldn't stand not having these type of things.

          • stynkfysh

            Web pages are definitely faster with Froyo. Its all how we use it, right? I am application oriented with my device… I will also say that it seemed like the Droid I hit a memory wall fairly quickly which slowed down the browser as well.

            Something else to consider… I was able to sell my Droid I for more than I bought it for in October (or was it Nov.?) last year. The cost is a wash, except for the additional family line I now have :^)

          • Chris Nimon

            nice, i was going to sell mine and do that also but I just couldnt handle going back to 2.1 with no root. I use way too many things that require it.

          • tech42er

            But you could root the Inc and put a custom FroYo ROM on it! You can keep Flash and C2P.

          • Chris Nimon

            I rooted it already. Tried putting cm6 on it but it kept freezing on bootup at the eye.ill try again after next update.

          • Mrpicolas

            wipe data and cache it should take care of the looping issue

          • Chris Nimon

            I did that twice lol. Im just gonna wait a few days and try it again. Leave for chicago in the morning.

        • stynkfysh

          Flash was very nice to have (rooted my Droid), and is a long term a requirement, but in my opinion the Droid X is like a breath of fresh air because there is no slow down, at least nowhere near the same degree. I push these little devices hard and being able to do so as quickly as possible is really important to me. Knowing flash will officially be coming in a coupe of months lets me prioritize speed and screen real estate. There are a lot of reasons why I like the X much better… Flash will come.

          • Chris Nimon

            when i went to verizon and compared my Droid w/ froyo to the DX my phone with Flash loaded web pages faster 2 out of 3 times.

      • Kevin

        My OC'd droid running at 1G was significantly faster than my droid x. Linpack on the droid was 15 while only 8 or 9 on the X. For Quadrant, the droid clocked in around 1500 consistently, the X down around 11-1200. One thing I did notice, the droid frame rates would hover just below 20 fps for 3D. The X hits nearly 30. Sweet.

        Just numbers, I know. But a rooted & OC'd Droid posts better numbers than a 2.1 X. I'll bet the X will scream with 2.2.

        • Kevin

          sorry… OC'd to 1100 MHz (1.1G).

          • stynkfysh

            I was like, really – what was wrong with my Droid? The OC must difference. When I was running the Droid OC'd to 800Mhz with Froyo I got an 800 range score on Quadrant. I just got a 1152 with the Droid X, stock.

            But I really think memory is the key with the Droid X… I have many widgets with a Live Wallpaper going and the phone is nice and smooth. My Droid I would have been choking big time.

          • Chris Nimon

            without froyo my phone clocked at 1.2Ghz was in the 1200 range on quadrant. With froyo and 1.2 Ghz my score jumped to around 1700, highest being 1739. I bet the quadrant scores will soar on the DX when it gets froyo.

        • Timoh

          What about the battery though? Drains a lot faster I assume. I know if you have a spare it's not that big of a deal but still.

    My favorite part of that screenshot is the bottom. Notice: Proprietary and confidential. Not for disclosure outside Verizon Wireless.

    It's ironic, because I work for a Verizon(telecom, unfortunately about as unrelated as you can get while having the same name) training program, and they are CRAZY about data protection. I have 8 layers of authentication to get through just to use my Verizon specific e-mail to exchange proprietary data with them. I'm talking dedicated laptop with RSA SecureID card, VPN, firewall tunneling, encrypted hard drives, security software suites. The works.

      All that protection defeated by a camera

  • Tony

    i have an interesting problem with mine. If I go to my camera and select to view all my photos. If I have 103 photos it's fine. But once I get to 104 and get that one extra row at the bottom when I scroll to the end the menu goes back to the folders screen. Weird right? it happens at exactly 104 pictures. not less. But any more rows of pictures than that and voila. It returns.

    • Tony

      Crap. Let me fix that. It isn't the problem at all. I tested it and the problem is the date. At the top right when you are scrolling pictures when you have enough pictures and it goes past may of 2010 it cannot and will not display June 2010 and it will return.
