Breaking: DROID X Android 2.2 Update Starting Tomorrow at 12PM EST

Just as we said yesterday, the Droid X 2.2 update will be released tomorrow to the masses.  The update will become available at 12:00PM EST giving any user with a DX the opportunity to “pull” the update manually.  Yep, just as we talked about at the beginning of the month, Blur does have one major benefit and that’s the ability to pull updates rather than forcing users to wait for them to be “pushed” to their devices.

To have your phone check for the update visit the following screen:

Settings>About>System Updates

At noon tomorrow, or 9:00AM here on the west coast, the update should be waiting for you.  Oh, you can stop checking for updates now.  Might as well wait until tomorrow.  :-)

One more shot after the break.  

And finally?

    I downloaded it and now I lost the marketplace app

      I had the same issue! Fudge!

    Just got the 2.2 update pushed to my DroidX. I was really looking forward to getting the update, expecting improved performance, as well as FINALLY being able to view FLASH. Unfortunately – Im very disappointed.

    First – my Marketplace app dissapeared. Had to do a Factory Reset and totally clean out my phone. This did get it back.

    Wireless is now broken. Just cycles through searching, getting IP address, Searching, Getting IP address. Never connects.

    Bluetooth is now broken. Basically the same problem as I have with the wireless. I USED to love my X. Now, 2 of the things I loved about it are broken. And to make it worse – I just bouhgt my wife a DROID2- SAME THING! Well – her Bluetooth connects, anyway, but not the wireless.

    NOT HAPPY with this update – certainly hope this is going to be patched sooon!

    hank you for the great post, I had fun reading it! I always enjoy this blog.

    Hmm. Mine sucks. Why is it that when I hit my search button to search for contacts and then click on the contact, it goes to the contact for a second and then goes off of the contact info back to the search screen?! TERRIBLE oversight by Motorola. And makes me wish I had my Blackberry back, where I could type someone's name and call them instantaneously. It's at least two clicks away with the Droid.

    Also, does anyone else notice that the browser is not as smooth? And the Motoblur is less responsive, too. And I can only think of one website I visit that uses flash. I do like the shorter vibrate on the key touch.

    Overall, I think I prefer 2.1. Can I somehow get it back?

    Wi-Fi sucks on 2.2. Mine keeps dropping and reconnecting and dropping and reconnecting. Motorola and Verizon have ZERO clue and have really been of no help other than to do a hard reset of the phone which of course loses any apps and other customization I've done. This really sucks Verizon.

    I'm not sure I like the new keyboard look, and my slide lock lags now. Otherwise I love it!!! I'll just have to get used to the keyboard. Volume update would be nice!

  • DeeTee

    I got the update at 1pm, the internet is snappy!

  • bsmelski

    oh boy…I'm in love

  • bsmelski

    Woohoo! However, mine didn't upgrade to 2.2….it is now 2.3 on my DX!

  • Boudin

    Had a wifi issue after 2.2 update. wifi kept dropping and reconnecting every few seconds. Wireless router was set to TKIP or AES. Changed the setting to AES Only in the router and it works like a charm.

    I'm looking for an Android side fix. As some routers we can't change the settings. This issue is not with all wireless routers. Have a couple wireless connections that are set to use TKIP or AES and it works fine.

    First! I got it!!! Got up this morning 6:30am pacific time, decided to check for update and I'm running froyo as we speak! Watch it download as I pooped and peed. Then watched it install as I brushed my teeth and shaved! Ohh yea.. feels so good! Hahaha

  • Jcdioses74

    About bloody time! :)

  • Josh

    I got mine at 12:16 am last night. Downloaded in about 5 minutes and took about 4 minutes to install. So far….noticeably faster web browsing, much improved camera actions, and the speaker volume is certainly better as well. Thanks for finally coming through! So far…..very impressed. Would have been nice if there were options to update all your downloaded apps at the same time….but not really a big deal. Relief and satisfaction at long last.

    • Josh

      Oh……and I pulled the update myself……with no waiting!
