Download: Leaked DROID X Android 2.2 for ALL Users

A leaked version of Android 2.2 for the Droid X has popped up this morning and is available for all users to try.  It’s a simple “update.zip method” and can be done in just a couple of minutes.  This is our first taste of the Froyo for the DX and we’re hoping it fixes the dozens of bugs that have frustrated so many of us.

I will say right up front that this is more than likely not the final version and if you update to this version, getting back to stock 2.1 is not going to be easy.

________________________________________

Download:  MOTOROLA IS REMOVING DOWNLOAD LINKS FOR THIS 2.2 UPDATE LIKE CRAZY. AT THIS TIME I’M GOING TO HOLD OFF FROMM UPLOADING THE FILE.  SORRY ALL.

*Warning* – Just a reminder that rooting VOIDS your warranty and could potentially do permanent damage to your device.  This is not a recommended practice and you do so at your own risk.

Instructions…

*Note 1* – This should work for rooted users as well.  Just make sure you haven’t themed or removed any bloatware or it will not work.

*Note 2* – If you get an installation aborted error mentioning the “logwrapper” we are looking into the issue and will update you as soon as we know a fix.

Update 1:  LOGWRAPPER FIX INSTRUCTIONS HERE.

*Note 3* – To keep root you must move your “su” file to your xbin folder and out of your bin folder.  You can check by going into /system/bin.

1.  Download the update.zip from above and place it on the root of your SD card.  (Not in a folder)
2.  Turn your phone off.
3.  Boot into recovery but holding the Home key and Power at the same time.
4.  When a triangle with exclamation mark appears, release buttons and press the Search key once.
5.  Using the  volume up/down switch, scroll down to “apply sdcard:update.zip.”
6.  Once highlighted, press the camera button to apply the update.zip.
7.  Your phone will work some magic and if finished correctly will say “Successful.”
8.  Scroll back up to “Reboot system.”
9.  You phone should now reboot running Android 2.2.

Enjoy the Froyo!

Again, this is a leaked version, so we have no idea if it is final or not.  If you update to this, it is not an easy process to get it back to stock 2.1 and requires RSD Lite and an SBF file which I know you all love so much.  Do so at your own risk!

    Well I think I should try this..I am excited for it..

    That’s standard business practice. You also can’t use the HTC OTA updates with a custom ROM. Which is why the functionality is disabled in custom ROMs

    Well nice to know about this The latest update actually asks everyone who uses it to force a re-root. Definitely something to look into. I can’t verify anything since I maintained root, but I’d love to hear if it works for someone..thanks…

    Maybe they should keep it from being leaked? It's their responsibility. Its just as much their fault as it is the end-user who installs it.

    I had to do a lot of bs to get to this point but essentially this is how I got back to 2.1

    I downloaded XDAdevelopers SPF file called “the gift”. Got stuck in the boot loop. Wiped cache, didn’t work, took sdcard out, didn’t work. Factory re-set, worked. I don't think ROM Manager was able to back up my settings (at least at that point) but if you are using Titanium back-up you can return to your settings/apps etc after the factory reset

  • Mattfraz88

    How do I get back to 2.1?

  • Schilkyl

    Do you move the “su” file from xbin back to bin once youve installed the update? Or do you just leave it in /system/bin?

    Installed 2.2 from zip file.

    Got a few errors during install, but it completed

    Everything seemed fine until I went to connect to PC, which will no longer recognize the Droid and keeps looking for a driver. Because of this, VCast will not sync and I can't run PdaNet.

    I want to return to 2.1 and wait until the official version comes out…can anyone post instructions and links please?

    Thanks

    How do I return to 2.1 and wait for the official version?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Had to go back to 2.1 due to Google Calender Sync issues. From what I've found, Google is aware of the issue and “is working on it”. Seems it's been an issue for 4 weeks now which is weird cause it worked fine on my rooted 2.2 Droid 1

  • Shirley Pdizzle

    If I download this Update.zip when the actual 2.2 comes will i prompt me to update the the actual 2.2??

    • mcdoogles

      no

  • antintyty

    i waited to DL this update, but i have it…the dl that is…it's on my SD and everytime i've tried to install it won't work…just a fyi.

  • Dtranewayne

    So can anyone tell me how to down grade back to 2.1 bc some of my apps have started to force close since i updated to 2.2 on the X

    • mcdoogles

      did u wipe ur phone before u installed them? if u didnt go into the boot loader (restart ur phone and hold the home button) then go to whip data and cache and wipe everything. reboot the phone and set everything back up again and u should be good.

  • Chris

    Anyone have an alternate download? I should have snagged it when it was up but i was too busy reading the guinea pigs comments. I feel comfortable with what's been said and don't mind the “work” to go back to 2.1 (I think Rom manager has us spoiled)

    • mcdoogles

      lol i am sooooo spoiled by rom manager!

  • Mike in SC

    Is there any way to verify the files in the update.zip? I would like to know I have the right thing before I load it onto the phone.

  • Chris Evans608

    this process is INSANE…. me and my bud Nate312 did it last night… started at 5pm… paused for many breaks, taco bell, smoke break haha, etc…. and by 230am i had 2.2 on my X…. the problem was… i rooted and got rid of bloatware… we had replaced them but its much more complicated than that… you cant just rename files.. when we fixed the missing bloatware.. it took like 2 mins… but shout out to Nate dawg.
    oh and as celebritory breakfast… we got checkers unbelivaburgers.. lol

    Anybody found a working method of rerooting once froyo is installed? I have the ninja still but no root. (I'm a sad panda)

  • Ciscorega

    what it says that the link is broken?? any one else/

  • Tuna

    Ok, so I just copied the su from bin and put a copy in xbin, and yeah now easy root says I have root, but of course I don’t, for anything but drocap, which still works, but root explorer and titanium backup don’t have access. Anyone know how to fix this yet????
