Full Frontal Froyo Caught Running on DROID X?

Another Droid X Froyo sighting.   And this time we have a picture of the full phone instead of just a screenshot.  Anyone else feeling even more skeptical about this one than the last though?  Same baseband and system version as the 2.1 Droid X we all currently have seems a little odd.  We would normally expect both of those to be updated.  (Shrug.)

I’m starting to get the feeling that we’ll be seeing these popping up on a daily basis until the OTA finally rolls out.  Aren’t you?

So we’ve got an “official” Incredible Android 2.2 leak, 2 shots of the Droid X “allegedly” running it and who knows how many builds for the Droid 1 in the wild.  I guess next Friday is starting to look more and more legit.

    I think It will be a Ten inch Behemoth that will put all others to shame. If Flash works on these Droid phones…thanks

    Just a thought but couldn't someone just edit the build.prop file to get the versions to say anything they want?

  • Maizekid

    I can't wait. I ran a quadrant on my droid x and it was like 1200 average. Imagine with froyo………, nice!

  • EggoEspada

    The .2 is off. lol.
    Very obvious because the Build # and Baseband is still the same.
    But I still don't doubt that the Droid 1, Droid Inc. and Droid X are going to have Froyo within a week or two.

  • Up2bcrazy

    That pic / device is not running Froyo. All the info on that screen is completely wrong. Somebody modded the build prop of the 2.1 SW. The screen shot posted over a MyDroidWorld is in fact Froyo running on the X tho that is a FACT.

    Wish these people with Photoshop would make more cool icons for android rather than waste our time

  • AnDroidSepTIX

    DUDE You know what I did today I took a picture of my DROID X and photoshopped 2.2 so everyone thinks I got the froyo. Im Freaking awesome. Now every one is looking at a picture with my hand holding my phone. Only if they knew what I do with that hand.

    Full Frontal? Kellex you can't be posting these “X” rated photos like this :P

    Off Topic: Assurion claims to have a huge shipment of D1 to replace any misplaced or broken or whatever D1

    went to get my droid x today!! they wouldn't let me upgrade b/c my upgrade isn't until next mon. but the chick said they had 10 Droid X in-stock

  • http://www.facebook.com/drew.h.wegand Drew Harrison Wegand

    Was mad as hell this morning! Went to see if they would move my early upgrade up to today (it's next mon.) they said it was a “No Go” and i would have to wait to order my Droid X but the chick said they had 10 in stock! (weird) Though they weren't shipping until 8/3? (Which is the day after my upgrade Blah!!)

  • Gtavc200

    Ummm…why hasnt PSX4DROID been mentioned on here??? It's clearly running on this Droid X in the notification bar. It runs very well on my regular rooted Droid.

      That's not psx4, thats mobile defense…

    OMG they are Death gripping it!!!

  • Ford5pt0

    I think they're both fake, the other screenshot says “Android version” and this one says “Firmware version,” and the 2.2 is obviously off too…

  • ericsorensen

    I can't wait to show our company's flash website on my X to all the i*phone users here at work – and they are 100% i*phone here in the office excpet me and my womper Droid X.

    And I agree with the others – this looks fake. I am still hopeful we will get FROYO next month, but I'm sure it will be later in the month that we would like…

  • Bill

    Froyo will be rolling out next week…be patient fellow droidians. I will add this though, and mark my words…
    Motorola will be coming out with the Mother of all tablets come the end of the year. It will be a Ten inch
    Behemoth that will put all others to shame. If Flash works on these Droid phones, which I believe is their guinea
    pig for the upcoming tablet, there will be no need for the iPhone on Verizon, and Verizon will have the same apocalyptic data nightmare as AT&T is having now.

    • ericsorensen

      I am hoping you are correct, Bill. But not that part about the 3G Apocalypse….

      • jxcgunrunna

        It will be 4G so that should spread some of the coverage from 3G to 4G.

    If only I didn't root my droid months ago and wasn't on my 6th froyo rom by now boy would I be exited loll

  • Hogasswildmc

    Like I said in your previous post, if it is real, it is probably a 2.2 UI on top of the 2.1 OS so Motorola can say it's their version or interpretation of 2.2. Benchmarking will give us the real answer.

  • nick o

    i find it really gay that wuth such great gpu performance on the droid x the launcher isnt 3d

  • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 Tony Garza

    fake.. the 2.2 is obviously shopped

  • craig1989

    definitely fake, engadget wants to just cause a stir..

  • http://twitter.com/hellacoolegy Brandon Egy

    I do not think this is legit. The 2.2 is not lined up with the firmware version text. All other text are lined up. Look at your phone and you will see 2.1 lined up. Looked at other phones running 2.2, the text are lined up. Someone just copy and pasted 2.2 from another screen from another phone.

    http://yfrog.com/msfakefroyoj Looked i just fixed it to look a little better but still fake

    • kellex

      Yeah we're all pretty sure this bad boy is faked.

      Why is it again that people do this? When you talk about toolboxes in Mom's basement, things like this make that cliche never go away.

      • http://twitter.com/hellacoolegy Brandon Egy

        I was excited until i looked harder. The signs are getting more and more real until this. I guess someone wanted to get noticed. But still love the X.

  • LobbyDizzle

    lol @ the title.

  • house

    Def. fake. The 2's are different. Obviously these folks that do this have no life.

  • dr154

    cant believe it until i receive the update myself or someone i know from verizon comes and says that froyo is coming out within the next two weeks or so. (time to check my own resources)

  • joed5122

    Am I the only one who thinks the 2.2 under firmware is photoshopped? The second 2 looks a little slanted.

    • Sdk_1052

      I agree the 2.2 looks a little off compared to the rest.

  • http://twitter.com/tyleralane Tyler Lane

    uhm. wouldn't the System Version be higher than 604? thats the version they just pushed out last week.

  • root4life

    im wonderin how the un rooting process is goin to go

    • Droidzilla

      But I thought you were rooted for life . . .

      • root4life

        lmao. good point but i was curious for those who will want to unroot for the official OTA update. plus its always good to know just incase uhave to change out ur phone or whatever at a verizon store so ur not screwed

    • jhankg

      You don't have to unroot to receive the 2.2 OTA. You will still receive the update and it will likely cause you to lose root. The only reason you have to unroot the Droid to receive updates is because the custom recovery blocks the updates.

  • WhereIsTony

    Won't be long.

    Fantastic
