Breaking: DROID X Update to 2.3.340 Coming, Madden 2011 to be Pre-installed (Updated)

Not to try and steal away the Android 2.3 spotlight today, but the Droid X is about to receive a pretty major update.  Why so major?  It will include Madden 2011!  We’ve all been waiting impatiently for Madden to drop on Android and it looks like the DX and Verizon might have exclusivity to it.  Crazy right?

Update 11:33AM:  We’re hearing now that this might not be the full version of Madden for Android.  Could be bloatware that gives you a couple of minutes of playing time before you have to buy the full version.

The total size of the update is around 79MB which means it’s got a lot packed into it.  Business users will find additional Exchange support, Froyo will be more stabile and then a whole bunch of other bugs have been fixed.  (Click on the document above to see all of the updates.)

After updating, your system version will be 2.3.340 which is NOT Gingerbread.  System versions are much different than Android versions.

Update 11:46AM:  I know that many of you have upgraded to the 2.3.20 leak and we will surely have a way for you all to upgrade to this.  We’ll have more soon.

We’re still waiting to hear when it will be available for download.

More info can be found here.

Cheers beast!

    How about the “SD card becomes inoperable, won’t store or load photos in
    the gallery or camera apps” error (or is that the same as above)?

    LOL. I have a game similar to call of duty on my epic 4g, there are alot of soccer etc with good graphics on it. and im not even on a tegra chip don’t let this be called a breakthrough and dont let the specs fool you my quadrant score is about double the nexus s with a “safe” overclock. I have Ubuntu on my phone if that will work so can world of warcraft given a little tweaking of the program. in a short period of time you will see real breakthroughs in computer tech like quantum transportation computing which makes latency and resistance 0 that

    I don't like that the weather widget app will not show the weather at places you might travel. I guess it's only for your hometown?

    I'll now be “waiting impatiently” for a way to uninstall this stupid demo app from my phone.
    Even if it were the full game, I don't want it.

    Thanks for bloatware, Verizon!

  • Timx

    Got the x update this morning

  • Klx125

    I checked and like many others it says that no update is available…

  • Clgleckner

    Do I have to unroot to recieve the update?

  • PUFFY98

    YOU KNOW WHAT? DONT EXPECT ANY FROM MOTO..I LOVE MY DX..BUT I HATE MOTO…I KNOW SOUNDS SILLY… BUT.. IM SURE SOME BUGS WILL COME OUT W/ THIS NEW UPDATE AS USUAL MOTO DID BEFORE…

  • Buckgrad

    Interesting…this page has been on the Verizon Droid X support page for 2 days, yet the update is still not accessible. Isn't it usually available as soon as they post it?

  • Guest

    not all of the bug fixes are always listed in detail on the software update announcement.. each announcement would be like 3 pages long if they were.. im confident this will solve *most* of our issues. however, yes, I would love it if they at least gave us the option to uninstall the programs that come with the updates… Madden you should be able to uninstall however if you dont want it.. like NFS Shift..

  • Jawshua

    Awesome I love my DROIDX. But yet I fear I'll have to wait for frigging ever like I did with my damn Froyo update. My Verizon is so stupid, I wish I could burn them to the ground and pee on their ashes.

    But like a fool I'll go check now, it's like a test of masochisim.

    • Jake

      The update came only to people who were signed up for testing. After the testing Motorola should give the okay to release to the general public. Verizon isnt stupid, people just have no patience….. myself included.

  • droidx

    • David

      Then go on an iphone site….. iphone4 blows buddy

    • Guest

    Will we lose root?

    • Dellbx

      Yes, you will lose root. But then again who cares when there is Z4root to get you rooted once again.
