DROID X Android 2.2 Update is Live Now!

Unless it has been pulled this morning, the official Droid X Android 2.2 update is live right now!  We will not be searching for a manual update method since the update can be manually pulled to your device at any time.  To pull it to your device go to:

Settings>About>System Updates

Go! Go! Go!

Droid X 2.2 Update Notes |  Unroot and Return to Stock 2.1

IMPORTANT UPDATE:  Apparently once you have updated to the official OTA 2.2, you will no longer be able to use the 2.1 SBF that’s in the wild (Not the leak, the actual OTA update).  There is a good chance it will brick your phone.  So that means if you update to official 2.2, you are stuck there.  It’s OK though, because we can root it.  Just be warned!  (via birdman)

Full gallery after the break!

    I got my Droid X after the update so it was already there. I have nothing to base an opinion on :P

    Its not good that once you have updated to the official OTA 2.2, you will no longer be able to use the 2.1 SBF

    Just downloaded 2.2 on my droid x and the speaker volume has drastically improved and has flash 10.1 so far so good.

    I am little bit confused about this post…what “There is a good chance it will brick your phone.” mean?

    If anyones still experiencing their phone freezing after the update I found a solution. You must format you sd card and put your files back on it. When I updated my phone it would freeze every time, so I restarted it without the sd card and it worked perfectly. So I put my sd card into a card reader and saved all the files on my computer and deleted them off the card. I put it back in the phone and formatted the sd card on the phone. I put my files back on and everything works perfectly

    If weve waited this long why would we update it manually? Especially if all they got to do is fix some bugs. Plus well probably get it next week so another week is nothing compared to 3 months.

    I hope they had a good source for manual update, because I know it didn't work on the Incredible.

    For those having trouble pulling the update, go to settings, data manager, data delivery, social applications, then uncheck sync over wifi. This sounds weird, but after you do that…power down, pull battery and sd card. Then reinstall sd card and battery. Turn on phone, and you should be able to pull the update…thats what i did and it worked.

    • Droid X Fm

      Dude, thank you!!! I thought I would never get Froyo. I did what you said and it found the update right away.

      • lakerzz

        Not a problem…I actually googled it like crazy to find out what the deal was, but I forgot the site I found it on…MAD PROPS TO WHATEVER SITE THAT WAS…lol

  • Levi95

    Not sure if anyone is reading this, but I would really be grateful if something could be posted for those of us who are on extended network and can not download the update.

    Thanks!

    I haven't received it either. I can't get it from “pulling” it. I'm thinking it might be because I had just received my DX, and haven't had it very long…(I hope)

  • John Menefee

    I still have not got the update to 2.2… in central Texas

  • Mdn5024

    After installing froyo, I can't make phone calls anymore, there's just no audio when I make or receive a call. Any help?

  • Evermour

    wow… so many paperweights, so little time..

  • Joshua89

    Hey, can somebody tell me why the people i'm txt messaging are not being organized by activity anymore? like i'll reply to them and it will show them at the top but then when they send something back, it puts them further down on the list…weird. Help please!

  • Joanna Jadore

  • Yoboy318

  • Darkwood

  • meagan.

    • Merc56

      if your trying to use Wifi Tether switch to Barnacle Wireless tether… I was using one then had to switch.

  • Joanna Jadore

    Uhhhh I think I will be waiting to upgrade my phone after reading all these comments. I tried earlier but half ways through the installation it reboots with a failed msg. WTF! Anyone have any ideas what other things I can try to push it through?

  • Mango

    Speed dial is not working. It was working fine on 2.1. It was working up to #3 slot on the first 2.2 leak. It wasn't working at all now. Is yours working?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=615125234 Jack Doyle

    Mine quit taking pictures. It's got one in the gallery that doesn't even exist. In fact, I deleted my entire camera folder but the thumbnails are still there and when you select one you get a blank picture. Can't get rid of any, and can't take any new pictures.

    What was wrong with Google's gallery app again?

  • Rickrmsy

    is anybody else having market issues after update?

  • jroc869

    Loved the unofficial 2.2, this official crap sucks. My phone locks up sometimes when i try to answer calls and my wifes does the same plus she cant hear people on the other end sometimes when she makes calls. anyone else having similar issues?

  • burpootus

    Am I missing something here? Why are all of the people who were running the leak upgrading. There is no way to go back or restore your phone now. If you load a theme or do other root stuff and end up stuck at the M, you are stuck, there is no SBF to fall back on. The OTA appears to be the same as the last 2.15 leak. What gives?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Justin-Settle/100000405237117 Justin Settle

    2.2 Killed my phone. I didn't root or preupdate or anything I was an original 2.1 user. It keeps freezing at the M. Took it to verizon and they are sending me a brand new one in two days. There was nothing they could do to fix it.

  • Kristen697

    I'm still having trouble with some sites telling me that it requires flash. Installed it this morning wtf????

    • lakerzz

      In the browser…go to settings/add ons/and select either “always on” or “on demand”…I prefer “on demand” lot faster page loading

  • Footballin60

    I feel like I have the power smart phone I waited for… Finally

    No pictures of the new Swype keyboard that came with Froyo? I mistook it at first for the multi-touch keyboard! It looks amazing!

  • Andrew

  • Won Bin

    whn is the update for Motorola Milestone for Malaysia!!!

  • Patrickbfogarty

    I had the check for update was not available error and was told by a verizon tech that if i had not received a notificaion for the update the manual update will not work. This is because the update is pushed out by serial number. And there is no supported pc update or in store update option idk hope this helps

  • timarnette

    I LOVE 2.2

  • tjpeco

    Still have a lot of apps that “can't be found” in the market after upgrading to official 2.2. These apps were available with the leaked 2.2.

    So far for me, I cannot find:
    FlightTrack
    Paypal

    • Darkwood

      I can't find Flight Tracker, either!

      • Anonymous

        i cannt find paypal or openfeint

    I am highly pissed. I used the OTA 2.2 a while ago and it bricked my phone so I went back to the 2.1 sbf no problem. Then I updated via motorblur and it bricked my phone to absolute brickness. I am now without a freaking Droid X…it wont let me get pass the freaking bootloader now. Anyone has any idea how to assist me please contact me kelvin31063@gmail.com
