DROID X 2.2.1 Update Will Be Available Tonight? (Updated)

We just received a tip mentioning that the Android 2.2.1 update which will bring the Droid X up to system version 2.3.340 (not Gingerbread) could start tonight (12/7) around midnight.  We do know that the update information came out yesterday and Verizon has done a good job of keeping these under wraps lately until they are ready to go, so this wouldn’t surprise us.

And remember that Blur on the Droid X allows you to “pull” updates, so at midnight EST tonight, you can start going to Settings>About Phone>System Updates to check.

Update 6:31PM:  Motorola Feedback Network members with a Droid X will get the update early tonight as a test group.  If that goes well, the majority of the rollout should happen within the next few days just as the original Droid FRG83D update did.  (Cheers to everyone who sent in their MFN emails!)

Stay tuned…

Cheers Aaron!

    i’m still on 2.2.1 there’s a lot of reading; a little confused.

    • Texasmade Eddie

      Forgot to mention; Droid X! What do i need to do?

      • Texasmade Eddie

        okay never mind guys; sorry. i just saw that my system version is 2.2.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US
        the android version 2.2.1 and i apologize for the questions im new to this, i have never rooted my phone.

      • Texasmade Eddie

        okay never mind guys; sorry. i just saw that my system version is 2.2.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US
        the android version 2.2.1 and i apologize for the questions im new to this, i have never rooted my phone.

  • jim001

    I installed the new update, Madden is there but requires an additional content download that won't download. Huge lag (5 seconds) when I push the home button to leave an app. Nothing positive to post on the update.

  • Defiantj3

    Mine failed as well at first. I have a rooted Droid X that i renamed some of the bloatware. Once I renamed them back to the correct name it updated fine. After the update it looks like I am not rooted anymore. Running Z4 again 🙂

  • Kellex, when you say 2.2.1, are these the folks that used “update.zip” to go to the previous Verizon DX upgrade early? The reason I ask is that I am running 2.3.9 release and it's not showing me the new upgrade as being available when I do a poll. HELP please! 🙂

  • For some reason my update installation fails on my rooted droid x. Any suggestions?

  • John

    What about Android 2.2.1 for the Incredible?

  • luvnmyd2

    I may have missed it…..but what about the D2?

  • Njd32

    I bought my phone december the 8th and i havent gotten any OTA update i checked it and it say im just running 2.2 and no madden 11

  • Is this still not out for everyone? I'm running 2.3.15 and manually checking is saying I'm up to date.

  • adams

    quick question:

    can i use the VRZ_MB810_2.3.15_1FF_01 SBF to remove clockworkmod after installing the 2.3.340 system update?

  • Slipgatevoid

    My droid 1 tried to get the update this morning, but it didn't do anything since I'm running BB v.5. Oh well, a phone's a phone.

  • Ryanskeltis

    I'm using 3G now,and its running fine

  • Ewg956

    I have a original Droid…..Bought it last year when they first came out. Just did a system update to the Android 2.2.1. Still have NO idea what this means…..anyone feel like letting me know?

  • Thehaggis

    Update was available for me at 7:30am EST, but I had to reinstall some bloatware. By the time i got that reinstalled, the update seems to have been removed. I'm getting the “up to date” message.

  • Alphabets13

    still nothing for me…..10:30am est. i am z4 rooted….defrosted any apps that were frozen, rebooted several times…still says no update at this time:(

    no custom roms or anything, just overclocked, wireless tether, that sort of thing. and no gingerbread keyboard.

  • forohagen

    I did. Mn here.

    • Kyjonkivelle

      Maybe its the southern part of the central time zone I am in Louisiana

      • Carol

        I am in Texas…no update.

      • Cporter15

        Still no update here in Champaign/Urbana IL Central IL. Driod X Z4 rooted.

  • Kyjonkivelle

    Has anyone in central time zone gotten update?

  • Dbenit15

    My droid x wont update…just say device is up to date. My phone isn't rooted and I just did a factory reset..but still no update? Anyone no what's up or why my phone wont update?

    • Alphabets13

      why did u do a factory reset?

  • CloudsX

    Central Time zone no root everything stock No update says phone is up to date. Why does insist on lying to me? 9:20am

  • Vinzky

    at 6am it says check update not available check later and then at 8am it says i am up to date. until now i am not getting the update. i am rooted and i have removed all bloatware except the cityid. is this causing the problem. if yes, is restoring to factory helps? thanks guys

  • forohagen

    I was rooted and downloaded the update. I didn't install right away and read that I needed all system apps in place. Since I deleted a few of the system apps like city id I reverted to my original backup… now I can't download the update again… oops. Oh well, i'll either get the ota later or find a manual update… or I might just go to .320 since there's a safety net otherwise known as sbf.

  • Kyjonkivelle

    It'a 8:49 central time and still no update for me. Any suggestions people???

    • Chickensaftereggs

      anyone try calling verizon?

      • Kyjonkivelle

        Yea they don't kno anything

    • michael scott

      In in the central time zone and got mine at 6am

      • Kyjonkivelle

        What did u do to get it?

    • Carol

      I am in central time zone as well and have tried all the tricks and still no update.

  • Sean

    i didn't get the update, i've rebooted and did a battery pull, still nothing.

  • Alex

    I am rooted with Z4, running 2.2, version 2.3.15, with no custom ROM, just back notification bar, and new Gingerbread keyboard. I did uninstall Need For Speed. Did not I go to pull it and says I am up to date. Do I need to install the stock keyboard or get rid of the theme for it to work?

  • Ericcaverly

    Got mine last night. What is it? What does it do?

    • Aaron

      Bug fixes, app updates and madden added as bloatware. Madden is NOT uninstallable!!!

      • Guest

        i think the “app” that comes with the update is just a virtual install package.. im thinking once you actally install it youll have the option to remove it.. i would hope anyway.. anyone actually playing madden yet? do you have an unistall or move to SD option in your app manager?

  • Chris

    I had 928 Black Glass and had the update come it. Tried to run it twice and it failed. Installed the OTA and now it says device is up to date, but still on 2.3.15.

  • Got the update this morning. I am now running 2.2.1 version 2.3.340. It broke my root access, but YOU ARE able to re-root. I used z4root app to re-root and am back up and running!

    • Beachm4ever

      Did the same. z4 re-rooted with no problem at all! z4 rocks!!

  • Cporter15

    I'm still on 2.2 rooted with Z4root it's 8:05 Central time in Illinois and still no update available. I've rebooted my phone and checked again still no update! Does that mean I need to unroot before I can get the update? No other special things on my phone all bloatware still there. I will try to reboot again and check. Any other suggestions?

    • Aaron

      Battery pull?

      • Cporter15

        I will try that now and if it works post it back here so others will know. Meanwhile I tried to reboot twice and still no update. Pulling battery now and letting it sit for 30 seconds.

        • z4 root should not be a problem, though you will lose root after the update.

        • Cporter15

          Still no update after a battery pull. Could it be possible that the update is hitting certain satellite's then working it's way around to others for the update? I'm in Centrall Illinois Champaign/Urbana area.

  • George Straight

    Running 928Droid BGX 2.3 rooted. When I select System update I get “System update” is not available without a Motorola account. I am assuming that somehow the deoxing and rooting are causing that, am I right? would like to go back to s non-rooted Froyo 2.2 and then update. Can someone tell me how to do that?

  • Walker_daniel

    DX here. One-click root. When I attempt to pull the update I get a message saying that my device is up to date. I have rebooted twice to no avail. Any suggestion?

  • CloudsX

    Got a link for that sbf. Everyone I flash does not seem to be full cause its not erasing all the apps and info?

  • Mikeyland73

    Hey guys do I need to install the 2.3.15 before I will get the update for the .340? Please someone let me know bc if so I will DL the 2.3.15 so I can then update to .340!!!

  • cdmoore74

    Upgrade worked fine for me. But I decided to use the 2.2 OTA SBF before upgrading when I noticed that koush bootstrap still booted into recovery after reloading stock 2.2 backup. I haven't tried re-rooting but I'm waiting until a SBF is released for this OTA. Like starting from the beginning. So far OTA is solid.

  • Elliottcs

    Got the update this morning!

  • Aaron

    I had to reboot before i could pull the update. It downloaded quick and z4root rooted it sucessfully. However z4 did not show up in the market after the update. Anyone else seeing this?

  • CloudsX

    Is the update avail for anyone to pull right now b/c i cant pull it. Says update system not avail.

    • Guest

      reboot your phone then try again.. i got this message too, a reboot fixed it.

    • Erik

      i got that too.. then rebooted and got your phone is up to date… this is annoying me lol

  • Aaron Brodsky

    I'm rooted, but no ROMs or anything. Didn't get the update. Not sure why. Got the email from Moto last night. Any thoughts? Also, very odd, I can't download z4root. When I rooted I used the 1 click method in the forums, not z4root. Could this be why? z4root isn't in the market for me, and when I tried to sideload it from XDA Forums it said my device doesn't support that file. Any thoughts? And how can I get the update now? Thanks!

    • Aaron

      reboot and check again

  • Buckgrad

    Registered as part of the MFN but did not get the email others received…update was not pushed to my X but had no trouble pulling it this morning. Only problem was when I tried charging it I received the message that the battery could not be charged because I needed an official Motorola battery (mine reads Motorola and was sent to me by Verizon). Did a battery pull then all was fine. All looks good so far. I'm seeing a definite increase in speed and responsiveness.

  • 11knives

    I was able to simply reroot with z4 after installing the update. Just thought I'd share…

    • Mike

      I'm not getting the update. Did you unroot with Z4 first? Do you have to unfreeze the bloatware, or does that just happen when you unroot?

      • Aaron

        Defrost the bloat and reboot and try to pull the update. settings-> about phone-> system update

        • Mike

          Still no go. I’ll just try later. Almost had a problem by unrooting Z4. Kept rebooting to clockwork mode. Finally got it to reroot though.

  • Guest

    im officially in love with this phone all over again.. its soooooo much better. smoother, faster… no more keyboard lag. it even boots up faster. just overall MUCH less buggy. im a happy camper right now. thanks moto

  • r3velation129

    I am officially updated as of 7:30 am Eastern time, checked as soon as I woke up, it should be there for everyone now. Everything went smooth as can be this time around, not like last update thank god, and the phone seems super responsive. MAJOR NEWS: MY TEXT MESSAGES ARE IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, all hail to the droid X.

  • Geri O

    Running the update now. So far, so good…..

  • so we got madden

  • Mtndrew308

    i just downloaded on 12-8-10 at 643 am

    • Brownt01

      Ive tried 3x to install and as soon as I hit install after it downloadsit reboots then when all started up it says update failed….
      Any ideas?

      • did you put all the bloat back? did you install the gingerbread keyboard?

  • I got my official upgrade at 5am EST

  • Just got the update, didn't kill my root or my angry birds scores…WIN!!!

  • Heymondt2000

    Just so everyone knows the update does delete your root access howevr z4root can reroot your droid x within only minutes.

  • This Phone seems more responsive as well…might just be me though. Madden is there…and it wants you to download more content to play,Thanks for sharing with us…

  • Brianburk

    Got it BOON

    • Brianburk

      And it already sucks so sad thanks again verizon

    • Brianburk

      And it killed my angry birds got to start all over

  • Santos

    Downloading it now…

  • Bob7847

    i am unable to get on line on my Droid X.. itsw 2:21am pacific time. Is tis de to te new vrsion release?

  • 3g is down for entire vzw network people, its not the uipdate!

  • Wega923

    After I updated my Droid 1, I got to the Droid “red eye” screen and it hasn't moved from there… what should I do?

  • Tony Pagoria

    Best part of the update that I can see is now contacts pop up when you are dialing there name instead of searching through conacts or dialing the whole number. Oh yeah and madden.

    • were you able to get root back?

  • It looks like you need to have the stock keyboard (not gingerbread) restored, cityid and vvm. dont need blockbuster/amazon. thumbs up to move to top. update is out for some owners not in the network. i am not in the feedback network and got the update. i have the update.zip on my pc. its in /cache on the phone

    • haevolution

      Whoops I uninstalled cityid and now the update is failing. Any easy way to get cityid back?

    • Kenneth

      Dude can you upload it to Multiupload?

  • Tony Pagoria

    No data for me neither. It sows I have 3g but no data. The incoming arrow on 3g stays litup consantly for some reason.

  • Installing the Android 2.2.1 update now!!! Go pull it!

  • Mikemacris

    ever since i updated i can no longer use the internet on my phone…

  • Its out pull it! 3:20am

  • Madhatter-1992

    After update I cannot get my moto droid 1 to get data service at all. I'm running on strictly wifi now. Any advice?

    • Amal

      same here. the update fails for me though about half way through, then no-go on data service… just wifi.

      • were you rooted? did you put bloat back? does it give an error?

        • Dean2359

          how do you re-install the bloatware?

    • Hooplaaha

      Same here for me too.. I haven't rooted my phone at all. The 3g isn't working at all even though it looks likes its active. wonder if anyone knows how to fix this or if this is a problem on all updated phones

    • moregeebeez

      Verizon data is down nationwide right now

  • saimin

    I just installed the update OTA. Don't notice any functional difference except that Swype doesn't work. I like SwiftKey better anyway.

  • My phone crapped out 100%. Tried to pull the update, phone went haywire, factory reset 3x now, cant get anything going. WiFi wont stay connected, no 3G (or any other cell service). Phone says I am without a Motorola service account. But it wont let me set up an account (it says the update is waiting, pending setup of an account). I am a member of the MFN. Hopefully VZW will have some answers in the morning, although they rarely do. Might be the most useless service techs in the world.

  • Duckpsp3000

    I got the update at midnight nothing impressive that I have seen as of yet

  • Yuki

    no service… according to twitter, verizon is down nationwide???

    • yeah, no 3g service here about 30 min ago..im on wifi now..so i dont know if 3g is still out..here in chicago

      • Yuki

        well the sad thing is, I won't update my phone anyways lol. of course until the sbf and apex rom are out tho.

  • Guest

    update it up!

  • just checked, and its downloading as im typing this..im rooted on my droid x

    • Santos

      I had it rooted (z4root) with no roms or themes. Update worked fine. It took away root access, though…

  • Michael_NM

    Successfully updated in NM, and it's “Madden”ing! I'm probably too tired to make a decent review, but… as others have reported: Root is gone. No easy access to Z4 to try. No 3G data.

    Regardless, thanks Moto! We love updates, but please unleash our bootloaders…

    Oh, and it's not Gingerbread… LOL! Good night…

  • Dre

    Just got the update and didnt join the motorola feedback network

  • Jpastrana10

    I just got the update!!! In cali

  • Sarge_sarge2000

    my internet is down.is anyone else having the same problem?

  • DroidXWins

    I pulled the update 25min ago and i hit download but nothing happened… no little arrow in my notifications, nothing. But when i hit system updates again it tells me there is a download in progress and it will notify me when its complete… should I be alarmed by the fact nothing is happening???

  • four bells

    Got it! First!

  • Avg2k1

    Btw its 11:40 pm in los angeles…. pull your update guys…..

  • Jeremy

    first bwahaha

  • Installed successfully. I lost root however this was expected. What wasn't expected was to see such little change in performance maybe I am just picky but damn can I get please get it so my contact list is not so laggy and choppy when scrolled. I really don't understand. It has to be blur, Rubix focused rom works so much better. I think the Moto interns coded Blur, that is my Theory. Trying Madden now.

  • Avg2k1

    Just got my update, dowloading it right now….wish me luck 🙂

  • Elianelalifonso

    my phone is updating right now

  • Jbob

    Just got the update installed…looks like the text time issue has been resolved. Phone seems more responsive as well…might just be me though. Madden is there…and it wants you to download more content to play, which is kinda good news only in so much as it doesn't add anything besides an Icon from the update.

  • Big Red

    Just pulled the update and lost root… Booooo! Lol excited for the fix…

    • civt

      z4root worked for me

  • Kit


  • Jawshua

    OMG I'm gladly eating my words… but after how long Froyo took totally understandable.

    But I just started downloading the DROIDX update. I'm in Cincinnati, so anyone in that area should be getting it as well. Here's to hoping it fixes my orientation and speaker problems on the DROIDX.

  • Jeyrivera89

    I can confirm as of 12/8 0225 (am) i was able to pull via blur the update

    • Jeyrivera89

      I should also mention i'm not part of the MFN thing

  • Confirmed, I pushed for the update at 12:10 and it finished installing at 12:20, did lose root but Z4Root Team hopefully will get that back for us soon. Phone seems faster right off the bat and hopefully will continue to get better the more I mess with it. Madden 2011 is on my phone though I haven't played it yet, wanted to inform everyone about this right now. Now this is what a Droid X is supposed to be in my opinion, FAST!!!! :-).

    • civt

      z4 didnt work for you? it worked for me

  • Chris Pickerel

    Im downloading as I'm tying this

  • I am currently downloading 2.3.340 as I type. I have been checking for the update for the last couple hours and it just now worked

  • Wkosonen

    Got mine!

  • Jawshua

    Haha what you should write is, if you live in certain places you might get the update, don't make it sound like just if you have a DROIDX you'll get it when it's ready cause that's BS!

    Took forever for me to get Froyo and I live in a large city. Stupid Verizon!

  • One_ina_milli

    Go pull the update its out!

  • Sashchs

    got the update like 30 min ago and my internet will not work. anyone else have this problem/know how to fix this?

    • civt

      its not from the update. other people been experiencing this too

  • Lists

    Another hour and 15 minutes or so and it will be in the data stream. Barring any major problems about 1000 users will get the update tonight.

  • insider

    You wont be able to pull till friday only push

  • Matthewfblanco

    Owwwww baby! Just got mine 10 min ago

    • DroidXWins

      did you check for new or was it pushed? I got the email and am still waiting…

  • Jonny

    just got an update on my Droid (not X) – not sure what's new though…

  • Chickensaftereggs

    Just send it. I mean really what is this all about. If I'm verizon, I hear this rumor, I squash it. If I'm verizon and its not a rumor…push the damn thing!!!! Sick of the bugs on this device. My service costs me what I could buy a small car for. The device itself is over $400 if I have to buy it out right. Come on Verizon!!!

  • Lists

    Be patient… another couple of hours or so. I'm fairly certain it's push only tonight so trying to pull it won't work. Make sure the X is either on the charger or on standby with a full battery.

    • When I tried a pull about 15 minutes ago it said the system was down. So pulling might not work and the push might be starting? I am in the MFN but didnt get the email. Really hoping it comes anyway, push or pull.

  • DroidXWins

    Has anyone who has gotten the email been pushed the update yet?

  • Brttwrd

    Lol awww sh*t, im running fission, wen i go to system updates, i only get a blank screen for eternity. i just got settled in too haha im guessing its cuz im blurless.

    btwfyi, my dx hit 300m wen i first got it the week it was released, then the first update came and i culdnt go higher than 300. until i installed fission, my average ram dropped to the point that i.nvr went higher than 250. i hope dx gingerbread gets that fixed. evn bttr, this froyo? update hopefully fixes that. i likez mah ramz

  • Ad0131065

    No update for me 🙁

  • Brian


  • Stevo760

    No update 9:00:1 figures

    • Darrin16

      yeah. No update. Why do I believe everything I read. :/

    • Brttwrd

      ru on the feedback test group? only they get it and IF it goes well, the rest of it get it a few days later. read the update ^^^^

  • Lists

    Also if you're rooted or have the leaked patch I don't think you'll receive the push tonight, but I'm not sure.

  • Lists

    The update tonight is PUSH only from what I'm told. It won't be pushed for about 2 1/2 more hours. Only selected users will receive the update tonight.

  • Hampton

    I still can't get the 2.2 update.. Any ideas?. Its frustrating the hell out of me.. My phone says it is up to date but running 2.1 -update1 . Also if 2.2.1 comes availible will i be ok to upgrade from what i have to 2.2.1 or is it a step process where I would have to have 2.2 before 2.2.1

    • Brttwrd

      i can only infer ur still stuck on that leak from forevr ago that culd only b undone thru sbf flashing. u need to giv mor info. ru talking about the first or second froyo leak? or ru talking about something different

      • Mikeyland73

        If I am still running 2.1.1 will I still get the 2.3.340 or do I have to upgrade to 2.3.15 before I can get the new update? Im not rooted

        • Brttwrd

          as long as u r not on a leak version, u shuld b able to recieve this update one way or another. seeing as how they r messing with the update service now, im not sure if u culd update now to the current froyo version and then wen the new one comes out u can get it. but if not then ull find out how itll go down later. im sure if it does one giant jump, ur phone will b down for awhile cuz itll hav ALOT of ui and system changes to deal with.

          bottomline: in my own opin8on, i wuld say u will b able to get the newest froyo version

    • how is 2.1 update 1 up to date? the rest of us are running 2.2

      • Brttwrd

        actually the rest of us r on the early 2.3 waiting for the next 2.3 😉

  • Brttwrd

    so i forget… does this mean unrooted?

  • px9023

    How do you subscribe to moto feedback?

  • demonofthesword

    Yay finally something I wrote in about, even if I wasn't the only to do so…

  • DroidXWins

    “Check for update is not available at this time” …should be soon!

  • Scottbroe

    I just signed up for moto feedback…will i get the update?

    • DroidXWins

      check your email to see if you were chosen

  • DroidXWins

    Got my email… now slowly watching the clock, waiting for the update….

  • Tuna

    I got the message, but I have JRumm X installed so I'm out for now I guess.

  • George Straight

    When I try tried to check if the system update was out for the Droid X my phones said, “System update” is not available without a Motorola service account. What does that mean. I am rooted.

    • Brttwrd

      it means the update service is down cuz ther probably readying it for the update 😉

  • NeoTheOne

    Yeah, I got the email a few hours ago.

  • Jme2712

    Just got the email from MOTO. They will be sending this out tonight…

  • Dropmaki0

    just got an email from Motorola feedback network saying the droid x final testing software of a new update will be pushed tonight for review.

  • guest

    C'mon c'mon c'mon….

  • Jeff

    About time… 2.2 has been quite a disaster for me since it came out. Hope this fixes all the problems i've been having!:)

  • cdmoore74

    About to reload my stock 2.2 OTA rom from backup. I already miss Rubix!!! Glad I did not upgrade to any of the leaks but hopefully you guys that did will not run into any problems. I'll wait and see if being rooted will cause any problems. Don't care if I lose root, I just don't want to brick the phone.

  • Droid X Rules!

  • Gotta be close, Matt in the Moto X forums has the threads started for updates…



  • Lancerlot7

    can i unroot with z4root and reroot after the update.

  • Freshgeardude

    Check for update is down.

    Maybe they are loading the servers up 🙂

    • Aaron

      Im still getting “your device is up to date”

  • Inept

    At the risk of sounding truly dopey, all I want is to be able to download Adobe flash player on my Samsung Fascinate. Will this be possible?

  • dannyjedi

    I am going to file this under the who cares bin.

    Yay, more bloat ware!

    If you are running 2.2.1 leak, you will not be able to downgrade and then update to this new build. We will have a fix for you though. Be patient. 🙂

    And if you are just simply rooted, you can upgrade no problem but you will likely lose your root access.

    (Please “like” this comment.)

    • Thanks!

      I unrooted but my DX still boots up in the bootstrap recovery? Will I get the update ok? And if not how do I get bootstrap to go away?!

    • KleenDroid

      Kellex… I swear nobody reads your posts. It seems the same questions keep getting asked over and over again even though you answered them.

      • Ery

        I swear, your comment is as useless as this one!

    • My droid x is rooted with z4, i have bootstrap, i also have titatanium backup (and it is freezing a bunch of apps) as well as dx overclocker. What do I need to do in order to upgrade? And do I need to worry about bricking my phone? (I do NOT have any custom ROMs)

      Also, I am not sure if this is for the general public as I received the e-mail from motorola as one of their software testers and in the e-mail it says that it will be beta tested by us before being released..

      • I had rooted with z4, I did NOT unroot. I ran the update this morning with no problem. Root IS taken away in the process.

      • Texasmade Eddie

        when you rooted your phone, what update were you on?

    • Bthomasltd

      LIKE! you are correct. My update came this morning and my root is now gone. will need to re-root. 🙁 oh well.

  • Chris

  • Lieffring

    If i have the 928 droid theme will i half to un theme first? to get update or will it brick me if i dont?

  • Davidukfl

    anyone know how this will work with clockwork recovery?

  • Justin

    So if I'm rooted I can search for it? Is it worth it to get it right away? Because once you go through with it you can't go back right?

  • eh?

    weeeweeee.. What if I'm rooted? Will this work with the leak? What if i'm on rubiX, can I still update? What if I have an iPhone, can I still pull this update? What if my old VCR needs some love, will it work?

    • Thomriddle

      yes to all of the above…enjoy!

      • eh?

        Awesome! Thanks Moto & Thomriddle!

    even if this does remove root I'd bet on the z4root team restoring it before the end of the week

    • Does that mean we CAN install the OTA on a rooted device, it'll just end up unrooted?

    • Sschaper

      I'd like to think so, but they haven't got it working on the Droid yet, and they've had quite a lot longer.

  • viewthis66

    when the DX finally gets 2.3 will the notification bar be black NS is showing or will Motorola override that with the ugly light gray that's there now?

    DX non-rooted

  • Bob Cu

    will i need to backup my data before i update? and also, do i need to reinstall all the apps that i have downloaded?

    • Nope, everything will be as is when your phone reboots from the install.

      • Bob Cu

        Thank you, sir!

  • Mps623

    Hopfully once this comes out we will get that “certain” file pretty quick. 🙂

  • One question: If I am rooted (only for two apps: Wireless Tether and DroCap) can I just install this OTA as normal or should I unroot first?

    • Anonymous

      If you are only rooted you will be able to get the update no problem. Of course you will lose root.

    • I've Asked That Question Before About My Original Droid And The Answers I Got Were That A Custom ROM Are Usually Better Than The Official Updates.

      Misread The Question, If You're Only Rooted Then I'd Wait To See If They Gain Root Access With The New Update.

      • The update takes precedent over the root. I just wanna know if I CAN update while rooted. Whether I lose root or not is irrelevant to me.

        Thanks, Mike!

        • You're Welcome Matt And To Be Honest I Don't Know If Being Rooted Allows For Updates But I Do Know That A Custom ROM Will Not Allow The Update.

          • From The Other Comments/Posts I Would Assume Yes. If Any Problems Arise Just Come Back And Tell Your Story/Problem And I’m Sure People Will Be More Than Willing To Help.

          • Great, thanks 🙂

          • Hey Mike thanks for the Info, was wondering is I use the Leaked 2.2.320 SBF. Will I get the update!?!?

  • Alex

    will i need to unroot?

    • Mkelleygcsi

      I would recommend unrooting, you can pull the update after unrooting very easily. I am positive that at most 24 hours will go by and the developers will have the new update implemented into their ROM's. z4root will most likely work right off the bat with this update also. You might as well just unroot if you want this update.
