Gingerbread Released for DROID X and 2, Downloads and Instructions Provided

Yep, our homies over at My Droid World released Gingerbread for both the DROID X and DROID 2 today.  Please thank them at the source links by donating and then get yourself to downloading from the links and instructions below.  Neither have been rooted, but it’ll give you a taste of Android 2.3 and the new Blur long before Verizon will release them to you.  You can always return to stock using one of the SBF files that is in the wild, so don’t be too scared about upgrading.  We can definitely get you back to stock for the official build.
