Download: DROIDX Gingerbread V4.5.588

Well here you go.  The random OTA update of Gingerbread for the DROIDX that we talked about earlier is out for everyone to enjoy manually.  Just know that you have to be completely stock on Blur 2.3.340 in order to run this update file.  There is no root at this time, but we’re hoping to have a version with root some time tonight.  And this is for everyone, including non-rooted users.  Actually, this is easiest for non-rooted users.  

Download:  Blur_Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US.zip

Instructions:

*Note 1* – For non-rooted users. You have to be running stock 2.3.340 or this will not work.

*Note 2* – To rooted users, you will need to SBF back to 2.3.340.

*Note 3* – P3Droid is hoping to have a rooted version up by tonight.

*Note 4* – We still aren’t sure if this is the final Verizon build or not.

1.  Download the file from above and drop it on the root of your SD card.
2.  Rename it to update.zip.
3.  Turn your phone all the way off.
4.  Boot into recovery:

*Hold the Home button + Power.  When triangle appears, press Search.

5.  Choose the option to install update.zip using your volume keys.
6.  Your phone will now load the new Gingerbread.
7.  Enjoy!

More mirrors can be found at DX Forums. (All links appear to be dead.)

Cheers @P3Droid for this file!

    I got another issue to with my epic droid.. for some reason when I connect the usb cord and connect to my puter… the phone says it is connected, I hit use as storage and the computer senses it is connnected but  I can’t access the card by explorer. I am very familiar with doing this and had done the same before but no good now.. also if I take the sd card and put it in the adapter card and into my computer it doesnt see it either…?????

  • Trandon Struck

    I did this update when this post first showed up, and i was pretty confident i could just sbf to 2.3.340 so i could get the official update. But, now that i try to sbf, I get this message, “Critical error B655 EDDC” It stays like that for about a minute then my phone reboots and works like normal. Any ideas what i could do to fix this? 

  • Ohyaknow76

    so if i want to delete this file will my phone go back to froyo???

  • Do you think I can use this to upgrade my DX to Gingerbread even after the most recent official update? Been trying to get Gingerbread through OTA, but am without any luck & growing impatient now. But, don’t want to use this version (probably outdated now) and brick my phone. Any advice DL community?

  • Anonymous

    HELP!! I got the Gingerbread update without deactivating my launcher
    pro. My phone loads to the home screen, but any time i try to do
    anything (open the app drawer, edit settings, etc) I get the error
    message where I can either wait or force close. My phone is essentially
    useless right now. Who else is having this problem?!

      You’d be better off SBF’ing. You can try to backup and unroot, but it’ll be easier if you SBF the little guy.  It’s just the humane thing to do.

    I just spent over an hour talking to Motorola first on chat then over the phone. i had 2 big questions 1. when will gingerbread be out for the droid x and 2. is the system version ending in .588 the official release. He was able to inform me that .588 is the official release, but that there has been no confirmed date. The reason there are reports of people receiving .588 OTA is through Motorola you can sign up for early releases (testers) I believe this is why there are reports of some people having the OTA update. Here is the link to the Motorola forum that should give you early updates in the future.

    The only difficulty I had was launcher Pro, after the upgrade it kept bogging down. after a few battery removals and rebooting I was able to remove Launcher Pro (free version) and now the phone runs perfectly.

  • Tyler Stephenson

    anyone else getting an error saying:

    (no such file or directory)?

    • Jackreilly818

      mine had the same issue. this means that when you renamed the file “update.zip” your phone already registered it as a .zip so the phone is looking for “update.zip.zip” try renaming it “update” and it should work

    I have some news. Some possible, some weird. I posted a number of times starting last Thursday how this update installed well on my non-rooted Droid X, but then the phone got flaky as could be, the buttons did not work, it froze constantly. VZW, Best Buy, and Motorola could not help me. VZW finally got me a replacement which came yesterday.
    I was glad to see all my paid apps came back automatically, but neither AppBrain which I synched regularly, nor the Android or Amazon App markets could automatically bring back my free apps.

    After getting most of them back, today, for the first time in two days, turned back on my original Droid X with the Gingerbread update. I wanted to see if I could get in the app drawer for a few seconds at a time to see what apps I had missed.

    All of a sudden and for the first time in dozens of reboots by taking out the battery, I was suddenly seeing the lock screen and everything worked! Amazing. Still, I think I will wipe it and send it back.

    So here is the possible good news. I was talking with Motorola support and at the end of the conversation asked if she had any idea when Gingerbread for the Droid X will roll out from VZW. She put me on hold and came back a few minutes later and said it would be out May 10th! I do not know if it is true, but I can wait until then for the officially released Gingerbread.

    That is the end of the various reports on this topic. Good luck to you others. From playing with Gingerbread I think it a great update.

  • Dave

    just to let some of you know… i didnt have to unroot my phone… I was able to run the update just fine… my phone was back up and running within 5 minutes and my home screen, contacts, and apps were all intact

  • Ryan

    This one seems to have a lot more bloat to me. It just doesn’t feel as smooth either.

  • Question: this will wipe ALL of data, right?

    Any recommended backup apps other than ASTRO’s?

    • Yes when you do the factory reset it will wipe all of your data. As for the app back up titanium pro i believe it’s called is good if you don’t mind a paid app.

  • DroidX1980

    I have fully installed gingerbread on my Droid X. My problem is the sync symbol appears next to my 3G symbol. I try to go back into my recovery mode with the power off, restarting holding the home and power button until the Motorola icon appears, I let go of the power button and continue holding the home button until the exclamation point appears, I push my search buttton but it never goes into recovery mode. Can someone please help so I can wipe data and reset?

    • DroidX1980

      I just went back to 2.3.340 using RSD Lite and was able to wipe the data and cache and reinstalling Gingerbread. Gonna try it again and see if that helps the situtation.

    • In order to do a factory reset you hold the home and power like normal, but then to get to the menu it’s both volume buttons then the power button to select. A factory reset will get rid of the sync symbol for you

  • Yes you can go back to froyo by SBFing to 2.3.340 and other than that that’s the only way you’ll get the OTA

  • you’ll have to SBF back to 2.3.340

  • Turn the phone completely off and try to SBF back to Froyo ver. 2.3.340 via this tutorial –
    http://www.droid-life.com/2010/09/21/how-to-return-droid-x-back-to-android-2-1/
    Use RSD lite ver 4.9
    and moto drivers 5.0 (you’ll have to register as a moto dev but it’s free)

    You can find the SBF link here-
    http://sites.google.com/site/1kdsdroidx/

    Use the very top one that reads Android 2.2.1 System Version 2.3.340

    Once you download the necessary stuff just follow the procedure and you’ll be on your way back to a working phone. Basically download and install RSD lit 4.9 and the Moto drivers 5.0, in the RSD lite settings make sure device detect is on first come first serve (that’s how my phone was able to be recognized) Then start your phone in boot recovery (hold both volumes and camera then press start) plug it into your comp, if RSD lite recognizes the phone load the SBF you downloaded (make sure it’s unzipped) and click the start button. Once that happens and the process is done your phone will restart but probably get stuck in bootloader which you just pull the battery launch the phone in recovery mode (home and power) then do a factory reset and you should be good to go. You may have to call *228 and reactivate the phone after all this but that’s easy.

    • Anonymous

      this worked for me and im back on stock with my dx so i guess the only thing i can do now is wait for gingerbread again lol.

      the only problem im having is i cant get my backup assistant working i click forgot pin and it tells me my pin and so i put that pin in and it says its incorrect.

  • If you run any leaked firmware, then as soon as an OTA comes out you’ll have to SBF back to 2.3.340 and then factory reset

  • Press down both volume keys to enter the menu then tap the power button to select and you’ll be golden

  • Ginny004

    If we do this, will we still receive the official OTA update when Verizon sends it out?

    • You’ll have to SBF it back to 2.3.340 which isn’t hard at all

    HELP. when i reboot my phone displays an android with a triangle sign with a ! in the middle. pressing the search button does nothing

  • Chayes407

    for anyone having issues. I had plenty of trouble initially, I pulled the battery a bunch and thought I bricked my phone. I left it be for a bit and suddenly the lock screen appeared and everything started working. Since then I have not had a single problem it works flawlessly I have done every thing I can think of no problems at all *I did the factory wipe/reset* gmail account syncs everything I recommend wifi tho

  • Anonymous

    i got my dx running the first leaked version of gingerbread from this site would it be a better idea to wait for the final release from verizon before updating again? would that one require a wipe also because i dont want to get rid of all my stuff and have to reinstall everything again…

  • Xzombiex66

    Just to be sure before i do this, im rooted but all stock no custom roms. Do i need to unroot before doing this? and also will i lose all my apps, i know i can back them up in astro.

  • Scott in MA

    My Droid X is now effectively hosed. The screen blanks when you touch, the only way to turn it off is to remove the battery, you cannot do a soft or hard reset as all the hard buttons do not seem to work right. VZW & MOTO could not help, nor could Best Buy (where I bought the phone). I tried to plug it into my laptop to get to the card and delete the update file, but cannot do that. I could get a call occasionally, but could not make any. Could sometimes see the App drawer, but not activate anything. I did have connectivity according to the bars and 3G statuses on the top bar. But the clock never changed after I turned it on each time.
    So I may have to actually send my phone in for repair. First time I ever did something like this and this is what happened. I thought the worst would be a hard reset. I would take even that now.
    I have to go away to help the US Military Reserves this weekend and now will go without use of my phone, calendar, the web, contacts, etc. Sigh.

    • Matreyu13

      Scott, I installed the leak the first night and had several issues from the start. Some similar to yours, more particularly my phone was freezing and rebooting several times in a 10 minute window. Strange part tho, I put it into Airplane mode and it became stable enough for me to flash it back to Froyo. It took a few attempts in between freezes and/or reboots to put it into airplane mode so don’t give up.

      • Scott in MA

        Thanks for the information. How did you get it in Airplane mode? Once it boots and connects and I have what looks like my screen if I try to swipe or touch it in any way, the whole screen blanks except for the notification bar at top. I cannot get that to move. And the clock never changes. It is almost like I am seeing a graphic representation of my home screen.

        • Scott in MA

          So now I have tried the remove battery, replace and reboot a number of times. I never get the lock screen, often it locks up. Sometimes I can scroll left or right. But touching an app causes it to lock up, the screen go blank except for the notification bar, and pressing the power button only blanks the screen entirely and wakes it up, nothing else.

    • Chayes407

      dude leave it be for a while I had the same issues and then suddenly it just started working on its own. After that i did the factory reset/wipe and now everything is perfect. i know it sounds weird but I really did have the same problems and after I just left it alone it suddenly all appeared and worked

      • Scott in MA

        Thanks for the advice. But none of the buttons work right. I could press power and home on boot up and get to the right screen but the volume buttons would not do anything so I could look at the screen and change nothing. I have removed and reinstalled the batter and restarted the phone many times and it is flaky as can be. Please define awhile and did you have problems with the buttons not working as I have?

        • Scott in MA

          I am not sure what was meant by leave it alone. I pull the battery, put it back, power up the phone, and leave it alone for hours. But it always seizes. Screen goes blank if you touch it or push a button. Occasionally, when it first comes up I try an app, but shortly it freezes and nothing will change until I pull the battery and start over. I guess I will wait until the new Droid X arrives on Tuesday and send this one back. I just hope the one I get at least has FROYO already on it and that with Verizon’s backup and AppBrain’s synch, I will be able to get my phone back fairly painlessly. I really wish this had worked after the install said it was successful.

        Its because you named the update file “update.zip” i had the same issue, just name it “update” and it works great

  • Scott in MA

    Well, I was excited to see this and try it. I hope my experience is not common.
    I followed the instructions exactly. (I have an MS in Tech and 20+ years experience so I am not shy).
    I applied the update and it said it installed correctly.
    My Droid X rebooted and I liked the new logo.
    But, when it comes up:
    None of the buttons work = do anything
    Touching anything on the screen makes the screen go dark except for the notification bar at the top, which i cannot get to come down.
    I could not get the phone functions to come up.
    I called the phone from another and it did not ring or show a call coming in.
    I could do nothing, so I tried to reset. Then I called VZW and they had me try the same.
    When I press Power and Home I get the screen with Andy and a triangle with an exclamation point in it.
    But the search button and the volume toggle buttons do nothing.
    The VZW rep connected me to a MOTO rep who told me to call back in two hours because their systems were updating.
    I liked what I saw of the visual differences in Gingerbread. I look forward to getting a version that worked.
    Oh, and the restart (after removing the battery, which was the only way to shut off the phone as a long press on the power button was the same as a short press, it just turned off the screen.) took about twice as long as FroYo. I did not get to time it, so that is subjective.

      I never installed it on this leak it does work on the rooted leak for this build.

  • Mr.Lahey

    HAS ANY ONE GOT THIS F-ING SYNC FIGURED OUT IM SICK OF LOOKING AT IT AND ITS KILLING MY BATTERY I DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT WANT TO WIPE THATS WHERE ALL THE PROBLEMS START NEXT THING YOU KNOW ITS RANDOM REBOOT TIME FOR THE DROID X AND IT WILL DO IT UP TOO FIVE TIMES A DAY.

    WITH THAT SAID I REALLY LIKE THE NEW LOOK OF GINGERBREAD BUT IT LOOKS LIKE ITS GOING TO BE ANOTHER WONKIE VERIZON BUILD.

    IF ANY ONES GOT IDEAS I FOUND IF I FORCE CLOSE THE ADMIN NOTIFIER OFF IT WILL GO AWAY FOR AROUND THREE TO FIVE MINUTES AND BE BACK.

    I DONT WANT TO FLASH BACK TO STOCK BUT AT LEAST THERE I CAN HAVE BATTERY LIFE FOR MORE THEN A FEW HOURS.

    • tiberiumdj

      I don’t think you have an option outside of data wipe/factory reset, with the sync icon and the force close issue

      • Mr.Lahey

        Thanks guys

        • Mr.Lahey

          Wiped and its gone so far so good

    • Chayes407

      all of my problems went away after the wipe/reset It works flawlessly thusfar, I have put it through its paces with everything I would normally use it for. Battery life is better it appears. If this is not the final build, it works like the final for my purposes

  • M0train

    Once you do this, can you get back to Froyo? Also what happens when the OTA comes out will you still get the update later too?

    Got it, works perfectly. Looks kind of cool too.

    Anyone else have trouble wit the file manager being glitchy and force closing randomly?

  • Chayes407

    Finally finished with the recovery wipe data reset whatever. I agree with tiberium, It took ALOT of stress time and energy but the finished product is absurdly faster,smoother,cleaner, and overall better. Tomorrow will be the true test to see how long battery lasts. before anyone complains about that try turning your screen brightness all the way down or off. Before I updated that trick earned me at least 2 extra hours of life. and just think! in however long when the OTA or official push comes out, we can go through all this hassle and debate all over again!

  • Rideblue526

    gotta say im kinda dissapointed with gingerbread lol i thought it was supposed to make it faster…..shits slower than froyo and phones freezing every time i try to do something …and no im not trolling

    • the version from last week felt faster. not having any problems besides my LED not working

    • tiberiumdj

      go into recovery wipe data/factory reset should take care of ya.

  • i think i seriously effed up my dx a long time ago because ever since i was playin around with tranquility and apex, id switch between the two, and i remember doin something wrong resulting me flashing an sbf, to get tranquility to work again, and i just flashed a maderstcok – OTA 2.3.340 update.zip to get this update when i remembered i cant push the update because it wont have verizon service, and whenever i try to go into recovery, it comes up with bootloader 30.04 err:a5,70,00,00,24 any ideas? and no worries, this isnt my primary or even secondary, tbolt and og droid got my back

    • tiberiumdj

      if you booting into bootloader just SBF back to stock wipe data/factory reset and your all good.

  • Anyone know where the Rooted Version is? and Anyone having trouble with the notification LED mine doesnt work

    Okay not sure where i should ask this question but im tring to sbf from the leaked gingerbread so i can apply the new gingerbread update… but when i try to get into boot recovery it gets hung at the screen with the robot with the ! over him… i read that to get into boot recovery you need to disable usb debugging so i tried that with no luck… has anyone else had this issue?

    • you need to boot into the bootloader not recovery. i believe you need to hold down one of the volume buttons and the camera button. should bring you to a black screen that says bootloader

      • sodaash

        your right not sure what i was thinking that worked

        thanks you

        • flashing the sbf is a pain in the but took me the whole day so take your time

          • tiberiumdj

            its not that bad, lol, just hard at first last night I think I did 20+ of them

          • yeah but i dont get the point of rooting the DX anymore. The OG Droid had roms and kernels that made it so much more worth it. DX with a root I really dont see a point unless im missing something than please inform me

          • tiberiumdj

            ya i hear you so many people only did it for the tethering thing. To tell you the truth with the right OC program, and a good clean custom rom, you run fast, your phone looks just how you want it, I have had my batter life to lengths I never though possible. It is kind of a what are you looking for in your phone type of thing.

          • honestly dont even know how to use the tethering. dont know of any Roms for the DX besides Liberty which isnt really appealing to me. And i didnt know there was a OC program for it either. I was on top of my game with my OG Droid but Im slacking with my DX

          • tiberiumdj

            ya check out MDW or Droidforums, lost of good info about roms, I loved the darkslide rom. But yes loads you can do on a rooted droid x

  • Ams1650

    Using 2.3.3

    I have this strange icon that looks like three reverse 3’s. It is between the blue tooth icon and the 3G.

    anybody have this and know what it is?????

    • Chayes407

      it means your phone is on vibrate. turn the ringer on

  • Chayes407

    Did manual install and it basically bricked my phone for 20 minutes. LP and other widgets kept FC and I got a black screen, unable to shut off with power button. Pulled the battery 5 times, could not get the triangle boot screen to work with search button, freaked a bit (I am somewhat new to this). Decided to just wait til morning. Suddenly without warning or doing anything it just worked. I have no explanation for how or why. Just did a factory reset (had the same sync icon issue). sync icon is still there none of my apps or anything have reappeared.. everything is stock. regardless it still looks and runs very nicely. Feels good to take a chance every once in a while. Comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Will it all reappear on its own? Adding everything over again will be a pain but whatever. GINGERBREAD BRO!

  • Ams1650

    installed 2.3.3 last night. working okay.

    But i do have this weird icon between the 3G and blue tooth. it looks like three reverse three’s/3’s-

    anybody have the same and know what it is??????

    • hater mchaterson

      its the new icon for vibrate

  • d

  • Robgt22

    Has anyone had a problem with rooting your phone after update

  • Villella1717

    Is there going to be an OTA sometime soon? Has it happened for anyone or has everyone just been getting it manually? I really don’t want to mess up my phone, butimgetting tired of waiting for this bus.

  • Rjg978

    Just updated and everything was working great, now it just freezes every single time. I’ve updated like this before and had no problems, my stuff is backed up, only problem now is when I tried to do a factory reset I cant go anywhere when I get to the boot menu, it just shows the triangle and droid icon, any advice would be great, thanks everyone

    • tiberiumdj

      after your power/home when you see the triangle press both volume buttons.

    • Marco

      Hit the power button & the search button at the same time.

      I have the exact same issue.

      • Curtis

        Any luck fixing it?

  • garrett

    settings> privacy settings> check back up data and automatic restore. then do a reset. when you book up afterwards and activate your phone again( takes 2 seconds) you add your accounts and all of your apps and contacts are put back on your phone

    • ya i know what you mean… but thats not a for sure thing. i have, its’ a 50/50 chance if i do a master reset that my phone will look the same when i turn it back on. normallly on moto blur stock it wouldnt.?? so inno?

  • This was a easy install for me … its just a grab and drop … all the nerds got confused with “root” …lol smh

  • how do i get rid of the “SYNC”… will it ever go away?

    • garrett

      factory reset did the trick for me. it automatically re insalled all my apps and everything. was set up in 15 min

      • wtf ? factory reset wipes everything what do you mean it was back. ?that doesnt make sense

        • garrett

          my reply is above dont know why it didnt show up down here

  • Ktownsfinest814

    If im running leaked 2.3.3 can i do this? someone please respond

    • tiberiumdj

      yes if your still on 2.3.340 stock, no root, you should have no issues installing this.

  • Chris

    I can’t get RSD lite to recognize my droid. What should I do?

    • Try putting the phone in media sync mode… thats what I had to do…

    • Try putting the phone in media sync mode… thats what I had to do…

    • tiberiumdj

      If your trying to use RSD to SBF back to stock you need the phone to be in bootloader (do this before connecting it to the computer running RSD. If you on windows 7 right click the RSD program and run as admin. RSD should see your phone if you connect it now, if not you may have a driver issue.

  • Ktownsfinest814

    i have the prviously leaked gingerbread. does this mean i can or cant do this?

  • Anonymous

    successfully installed this on my husbands DX but now auto-sync will not shut off…looked in settings no “accounts and sync” in the settings menu…just “accounts.” any ideas how to shut down auto-sync? and if this would create an issue leaving it on(drain battery etc.) if it wont create any issues, we wont worry about it.

    • garrett

      i did a factory reset to mine when that happend. it automatically installed all my apps and i was set up agian in maybe 15 min tops.

        would i have to re-install gingerbread? or does it just factory reset gingerbread?

    is there a way to get the old school crt off animation on this verision?

    • tiberiumdj

      once its rooted you should be able to install the crt animation just like you did on the last build

      • garrett

        thanks for the repy. do you know if it is possible if you are not rooted? i was never rooted before

        • tiberiumdj

          I do not think it can be done on a non rooted phone, this is why we root 🙂

          • garrett

            i wanna root. i just dont wanna lose my warranty if i break my phone some other way

          • tiberiumdj

            you can always unroot, though I have never heard of anyone taking a broken (not just software, but actually like ran over it with my car broken) phone to verizon and being turned away because of being rooted.

          • garrett

            do you now if this verison above has root acess yet?

          • tiberiumdj

            the one above does not, the root verison of this GB build should be 3 different .zip files that will need to be installed. I assume it will be up later this evening.

          • garrett

            thanks for the help man. im really considering goin for the root if its not too complicated.

          • garrett

    • Tom

      when you rename it, only rename it “update”. If you do update.zip, it will be named update.zip.zip. Drop that on to the root of your sdcard, and try again.

    Is anyone having issues using a corporate email and getting their calendar to sync?

  • Curtis

    I keep getting an error (status 7) 🙁

    • Name the file update not update.zip and that should fix your problem.

      • Curtis

        no that actually didn’t fix my issue… recovery mode doesn’t even recognize it if I don’t keep it as update.zip

        • tiberiumdj

          it is already a .zip file so when you look at the file you should see update as its name. if you name it update.zip its real name will be update.zip.zip. Also check the file size it should be close to 112mb, you may just have a bad file.

          • I’ve re-downloaded 3 times, viewing the file in either Astro or Windows shows that the full file name is update.zip NOT update.zip.zip (… I know how to name a file)

            did you get it to work ,cause im having the same damn problem

  • Anyone notice a difference between this version and the leaked GB a few weeks back?

  • i ran this update and all seemed good but now when my x loads following the new red moto logo and the eye animation it prompts me to pick launcher pro as default for interface but the screen wont recognise me touching my option so it just sits there and wont go any further into the os….if I attempt a hard reset i get to the exclamation image but the search button doesnt bring up the menu to reset like it did before…am i screwed? plz help

    • hold the volume buttons down and use power as select

      • no i dont even get to that menu, it just stays on the exclamation image “if I attempt a hard reset i get to the exclamation image but the search button doesnt bring up the menu to reset like it did before”

        • so it boots in recovery but u get no menus? if u get the triangle with the exlcamation mark and android you need to hold down both volume buttons and the menu should pop up.

          • ahh my bad, wasnt holding both of them, got it thanx 😉

  • Still have a problem with the notification LED and Data Sync Arrows. Did a factory reset and no luck. Any other ideas?

  • Tom

    Did anyone try placing su and insmod in /system/xbin before updating? I wonder if it would keep root??

    • Tom

      i mean busybox instead of insmod

      • tiberiumdj

        It would be worth a try, however TBH has it rooted and early test went well, be interesting to see what they release.

    if i have the leaked GB rooted version how do i go back to stock and then put the official on? any help would be much appreciated

    • Tom

      You need to use rsdlite to flash the 2.2.1 SBF.

      • jay533

        is that hard to do? where do i get this?

        • Alex

          I wouldn’t bother. This is not the final build anyway, so if you already have the leaked version, this one isn’t going to be much different if at all. Just wait for the official, its not worth the effort for this one.

        • Tom

          No its not hard. You just have to download rsdlite (windows only) and then download the SBF file. After that you pretty much plug in your phone and click a button.

    • Tom

      You need to use rsdlite to flash the 2.2.1 SBF.

  • Shnibitdohget

    A few of things I experienced with the leaked version:
    – When I tried to used the wireless tether for rooted users it only worked about 25% of the time. When it didn’t work every time I would try to pull up a website on my phone it would redirect me to a Verizon page that would try to sell me a data or tethering package. I suspect they’ve built something in to monitor rooted users who are tethering into this build, but I dont’ know if my experience was the norm.
    + Runs faster than Froyo Motoblur
    – Runs slower than Liberty, which is pure awesome.
    +/- Built in support for Exchange will now push email subfolders for you!!! Previously you had to actually open an email subfolder for it to check and see if you have new mail in it or update it at all (annoying if you have rules set up to send mail filter your mail into different folders). HOWEVER, you still don’t get notifications that there is new mail in those folders… which makes the fix somewhat worthless. You only get notified if something comes into your general Inbox.

    $0.02. I’ll stick with Liberty 2.0 and wait for them (or another good Rom developer) to come out with a good GB Rom.

  • YourMomsTwaht

    People, let me spell this out for you. This is not the official GB release.

  • Will this work on the Milestone X variant?

    • YourMomsTwaht

      nope

  • Draggerlane

    I have two questions about this. First is this the same version that was leaked about three weeks ago. and Second I am on the leaked version that came out a few weeks ago. The problem I am having is when i try to put it into recovery mode I get the triangle symbol with the the droid guy but when I push the search button to get the recovery menu nothing happens I haven’t had this done to me before any solutions to this problem

    • YourMomsTwaht

      You have to hold in both volume keys at the same time, then use the power button to select, dif. than before. You have to be back at 2.3.340 stock before you can update with this. Read the directions.

      • Draggerlane

        I’m not trying to use this update I was merly trying to get into stock recovery on the leaked version of gingerbread I DID READ THE INSATRUCTIONS.

        • YourMomsTwaht

          DON”T ASK FOR HELP AND BE A DICK.

    • Spideme

      I had the same issue, make sure you are using the D2 Bootstrap Recovery, as soon as I used that I was able to get access. Hope this helps…

  • Is anyone else having issues with the keyboard? When I long press ther period or smiley for more options it opens the window like it should, but the alignment is off. I have to be a row lower than the row I want. Plus, I am not a fan of the selection windows popping up that you have to keep your finger on the screen to select or it just goes to what your finger was on before you picked it up. I have a couple replacement keyboards that have a setting for this, but their layouts are subpar in my opinion.

    • YourMomsTwaht

      Yep, the alignment is way off.

      Also, does your screen adjust the brightness when moving about settings menus? When you are in battery usage then hit the back button the screen adjusts the brightness up a small amount. Happens in Gmail too.

      • I have not noticed that, but the hard keys seem to be brighter.

        • YourMomsTwaht

          Can you goto menu/settings/battery use and go back and forth a few times giving it a second. You will at times see the brightness jump a bit.

          Same thing happens in the Gmail inbox. Going from inbox to message then back button you will see it also.

    Is anyone seeing the “shadow” when they get to the top or bottom of a scrolling list? It slides from either the top or bottom depending on the scroll direction and slides back down. Kinda of like the same way the notification window does.

    • Dragoneer

      Yes, that’s part of the new BLUR UI (Or is is Gingerbread?)

      • Anonymous

        It’s mainly Gingerbread. On a Nexus S, when you have scrolled to the farthest reaches in any direction, a yellow glow appears to let you know that you’re done scrolling. The MOTOBLUR version is larger though.

    • Rain_king46

      This was on the leaked version too. Im not a fan. It doesnt look like a “feature” it looks like a glitch.

    I had Bootstrap and root installed, ran the SBF Full to set the phone to complete stock.
    update.zip
    wipe data/cache
    done

    Works fine, quite a snappy speed increase…root will only make it better.

    Can always SBF back to .340 if need be, don’t worry guys.

  • JimLittle2001

    so this will not work if you have the leaked version of 2.3 you did earlier this week

  • Anonymous

    This release has obvious bugs – Exchange and FB accounts can no longer be managed and do not sync. They must be allowed to time out, deleted and recreated. That is one reason VZW will not release this rev.

    • Sanderson

      So wait, are you saying that I can’t sync my Outlook calendar at work with my Droid X now that I have Gingerbread?

      • Dragoneer

        Test it now to see if it works. If it doesnt, then it will most definitely work after you do a factory reset/wipe on your DX. I know it sucks losing all of your settings, but that does solve the problem with syncing.

        • Sanderson

          So your Exchange account works with Gingerbread after you factory reset? I just want to make sure, because if it doesn’t I’ll stick with Froyo for now

      • Anonymous

        What I experienced was that my DX exchange would not sync. I tried deleting the account, but it did not show up in the My Accounts app. I tried re-creating my Exchange account on the DX but it said it already existed. Shortly afterward, I got a notification that my exchange sync failed. The dialog box gave me the option to delete the exchange account, which I did. Then I recreated the Exchange account and it works fine.

        Same thing happened with my FB account.

        I works – but not something VZW would want to release.

        • Sanderson

          I’m not getting the notification that the Exchange sync failed, thus no dialog to delete the account…is there a way to do this manually?

          Jeezus, what a mess…

          • Dragoneer

            I’m not quite sure. My impatience overcame me and decided to get it over with by doing a factory reset. At least I didn’t lose anything because all of my contacts and emails were already synced with Google before updating my DX. Just the settings were the ones that got reset. And all of the apps I DL’d from the market also had to be re-downloaded.

    • Dragoneer

      Actually, this kind of problem has been common for us who manually updated to GB on our DX’s. I did everything I could to get the syncing to work again and finally gave up before resetting/wiping my DX. Now, everything is working flawlessly. And that includes getting rid of that annoying sync icon on the taskbar.

      • Sanderson

        The only way to go back to Froyo is to wipe your DX? Or can you just reset back?

        • Sanderson

          I just HAVE to have my Outlook synced to my DX, otherwise there’s no point in me having a phone PERIOD! Would have been nice if someone had made this issue clear in the article, but I guess it’s my fault for not reading every damn forum out there…

          • Sanderson

            Now when I try to boot into recovery the triangle/android symbol just sits there with no options to select…

          • Dragoneer

            When you see the triangle/android symbol… press both volume buttons at the same time and it will bring you to options to select.

          • Sanderson

            Thanks, I’m going to try to do what C-hack suggested and delete the account – though I haven’t seen a dialog that will allow me to do this yet – and then consider the options to go back to Froyo. I’d rather stick with GB if I can, because there do seem to be some improvements overall.

          • Dragoneer

            Sure… Do whatever you can to fix your syncing issues. We’re here to help. 🙂

        • Dragoneer

          It will only reset back, it will not bring you back to Froyo unless you SBF / flash it back to Froyo.

      • KevinL

        Hi – Were you non-rooted? Then did you wipe and come back to GB plain and just download and set everything up again? And all worked?

  • For some reason, whenever I open the app drawer, long press on an app icon, and click “add to home,” nothing happens. ANy ideas? Do any of you guys have the same problem?

  • Sanderson

    my calendar and agenda widget no longer are syncing with my Outlook calendar via the Exchange account, and now when i try to sync music files on my PC using WMP, WMP shows all my files as Unknown Artist, even though they are read just fine on my Droid X…help!

    or is there a way to just go back to regular Froyo for now?

  • hanging for anyone? Lots of visible changes and some apps are hanging I’m not sure about this at all! Screen is unresponsive with LauncherPro. WhatsApp hangs and crashes. Buttons are non responsive. I kinda feel this is a bad update…..

    • tiberiumdj

      Sounds like you need to jump into recovery and do a data/ factory reset

  • kidinasuit

    Can anyone tell me what app I should have download to backup my phone before doing this?

    • Anonymous

      Clockwork Recovery, you’ll only be able to do this while rooted. And also only be able to restore while rooted.

      I personally have not tried ROM Manager (I think that’s what its called) but I hear it can do it all for you without having to boot into the bootstrap.

  • kidinasuit

    how do you backup your phone before doing this? sorry im a newbie still

    • tiberiumdj

      You might want to read and search through some of the forums then, to get a good back up you will need bootstrap, and thats requires you to root your phone, if you root you will need to SBF before you can install this update.

      So make sure you read up on rooting, bootstrap, clockworkmod, RSDlite, SBF, theres lots of people out there to help you learn all of this

      • Thank you. I guess I should just wait for the verizon update then?

        • stm^

          just depends on how much effort you want to put into learning the steps of backing up and restoring possibly if things go wrong. even those things aren’t hard to do and are a step by step basis, but can seem scary if you haven’t dealt with such things before. if you are overwhelmed i would say wait til the OTA….. but remember you prolly won’t be able to root if for AWHILE if ever if you do so. if thats not important to your future needs than the OTA is the way to go

          • tiberiumdj

      Is there a gingerbread by Verizion? Most likely. Is this it? Most likely. Will you get an OTA update of GB to your droid X in the future? Most likely.

  • Matreyu13

    I’ve flashed back to froyo using RSD Lite, it appears successful but RSD is saying to manually phwer up phone. except the phone is running the bootup animation (red droid) over and over and over. any suggestions? RSD says it’s still in process, and if I try to close I get a scary message saying i could damage my device.

    • stm^

      matreyu just boot into the stock recovery and do a cache wipe and factory reset and it should get you past the boot loop

  • Threefirstnames89

    I’ve tried uploading this GB version but I keep getting an error message when I choose the update.zip file…it says installation aborted.

    Any help? I’m running the base version of 2.3.340 as well….

    Would appreciate ANY advise.

    • tiberiumdj

      name your file just update not update.zip

    • Spike

      make sure the file is named update.zip all lower case if it isn’t redownload from another site then rename it update.zip all lowercase then drop it onto the phone

      • Threefirstnames89

        I’m now getting mixed feedback…some say don’t name it update.zip and others say make sure not to apple the ‘.zip’ file extension.

        Which is the successful way?

        • tiberiumdj

          it is already a .zip file all you need in the name is update. If you name it update.zip, its real name would be update.zip.zip and your phone will not find it when your in recovery

    • yes you can go back to froyo, honestly no reason to GB is much faster

    • tiberiumdj

      yes

  • Matreyu13

    i’m gonna go back to froyo, here’s what I need to do?
    1. connect phone to USB, put phone in PC Mode with debugging on.
    2. launch rsdlite 4.9
    3. verify my device is listed and select the SDB 2.3.34
    4. click start. that flashes froyo back on and reboots.
    5. then i have to sign back into my google account & corp account etc.?

    • tiberiumdj

      well launch RSDlite first, then put your phone in bootloader, then step 3

      • Matreyu13

        and then after that what? I’m back to froyo? to get to bootloader its camera + volume up + power?

        • tiberiumdj

          correct once RSD sees your phone click start (after loading the SBF file) and sit back,

          • Matreyu13

            and the SBF Platform is supposed to read 4G OMAP?

    does anybody else that has the GB notice a notification window type effect in many other apps? example, i was moving apps to SD when i scrolled to the bottom and back up i saw the semi-transparent “window shade” drag up from the bottom.

    • I noticed it in a couple of menus to let you know that it’s at the bottom

      • Matreyu13

        it actually does it from the top too.

        • hmm cool i don’t mind

          • Matreyu13

            i guess it does kinda make sense to let you know you’ve reached the top or bottom

          • now i know what it’s for it’s ok, before it was an annoying bug lol

    • Marco

      Noticed the window-shade & what @Dakota Michaud said.

  • Marco

    JUST installed the ZIP file from this page.

    CAN CONFIRM:
    1) Stock Android 2.2.1 (non-root, nor will I ever)
    2) Did the instructions above, and completed successfully.
    3) On boot: Started with the NEW Moto Logo. Then, Droid Eye loaded (took about two minutes to fully load). Now, it is syncing.
    4) I DO use LauncherPro and that NEVER affects my phone.
    5) I backed up EVERYTHING on my phone (including LauncherPro’s backup usage) and EVERYTHING came back to my phone as normal. It was as if I didn’t need to back up OR re-download anything at all.

    🙂

    • Marco

      ADDED: Adobe Flash is updated to 2.2., and my phone seems WAY faster, even using LauncherPro. The graphics are definitely A LOT better than the old phones.

      Also, if you’re ‘Dialer icon’ is missing, it’s just in your APP drawer. Just take it off your homescreen and re-add them; same with the other ones; (i.e. Contacts, FM radio, etc.)

    • You have to SBF if you want to go back and get the OTA in all honesty though there shouldn’t be that much of a difference between this and the OTA

      • being as this file was pulled from the OTA it should be the same

    Just a random question for either the peeps that are running this or the OTA, but is the boot animation any faster?

    QUESTION: IM NEW ON X
    THIS IS THE OFFICIAL GB BY VZ? WHEN THE OFFICIAL COME OUT I CAN GO BACK TO FROYO TO INSTALL THE OTA? SORRY BUT IM NEW 🙂

    • tiberiumdj

      if your new I would not mess with this, there are lots of places with great info and people to help you begin to understand this and other droid x processes, but I would read up and learn a bit before messing with your phone on this level.

      • In all fairness this is on the easy end of things it’s just the going back to froyo that would be challenging. Definitely take his advice though and wait, read up and think before you make a choice.

        • tiberiumdj

          ya that was my worry, the getting there is really easy, getting back for a new user (not so much)

  • I really like the fact that after I did the factory wipe to get the sync icon to go away. As soon as i went to the market it started pulling all of the apps I had downloaded on it’s own. N ever seen that before has anyone else?

            I do my best it does not always work lol

          • Ya i know what ya mean, Way i look at it is a leaked version that got this far is probably as close as i need since i’ll be upgrading soon, i just hope the battery life with this update is decent

          • tiberiumdj

            true, as more people run it we will be able to tell how strong of a build it is, speed will come with the root.

      whats the build version?

  • Andy Woodybuzz

    has anyone got back to froyo yet

    • Matreyu13

      i’d feel more comfortable at froyo, but i can’t find the SBF file. if you find it let me know

  • tiberiumdj

    CellZealot’s Twitter:

    this release definitely slipped thru the cracks somehow. We don’t know why but it can not be considered official.

    it is far to recent a build to have made it through testing already. it is not a fake or a hoax but it is an enigma. 😉

  • Brad

    WELL EVERYONE, I NOW HAVE GINGERBREAD on my phone thanks to VERIZON. I guess you all should be getting yours soon. I’m going to play around with it and have pictures posed up within the next 20 minutes, as well as all my apps and forms of verification. Gingerbread is coming to you guys sooner than you think!!! =D

    Go Irish !!!

      I’ll believe it when I see it….i still dont trust you

  • Microdot

    It says that if you are rooted you have to sbf back to stock. I am rooted with z4root. Will hitting the “unroot” botton get me to where i can perform this download?

  • Hotguy_e

    Dude if its me i would not do this update. VZW has come out with a statement that it has pushed NO OTA and has no intentions on doing anytime soon. SOO F U VZW for making us wait!

  • Andy Woodybuzz

    nevermind if you lose swype you have to go to the keyboard settings in settings menu to turn it back on you cant do it from the button on keyboard anymore…weird lol i need to figure this sbf stuff out so i can go back till i get the ota so i dont have to think so hard lol

  • Matreyu13

    I left the name update.zip and it installed, although i’m having issues.

  • Matreyu13

    has anybody successfully reverted back to froyo?

    • tiberiumdj

      I can try if you like

  • I checked for OTA updates before I went into work this evening(no personal electronics allowed in my facility, sadly), and I was informed that my device was “up to date”(it’s on Froyo). Is this because I have LauncherPro running as my UI? Do I need to un-install it?

    • tiberiumdj

      no launcher pro should not be a problem

    • when they say “manually” update, they don’t mean for everyone to click updates and search for system updates, they mean manually as in download the file above, put it on the sd card, and install yourself. This is not an official release, it’s a leaked release.

  • Yes…rename the file with just “update”. Not update.zip. Messed with this for an hour before someone told me. Should work after that.

  • So I did everything in the instructions but when i try to install the update.zip in the recovery it says “No such file or directory” and the installation is aborted…

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    • tiberiumdj

      name the file update not update.zip

      • depends on how he sets his folder view, it has to have the .zip extension to work but if it is update.zip.zip it won’t work. Mine is Update.zip (The extension) and worked just fine.

      • I didn’t think something so simple would make such a difference!
        Thanks!

    • make sure it’s not in a folder. basically sdcard/update.zip and not sdcard/randomfolder/update.zip

    • Tim242

      Did you put it on the root of your SD, or is it in your download folder?

  • So I did everything in the instructions but when i try to install the update.zip in the recovery it says “No such file or directory” and the installation is aborted…

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    • have you ever rooted? if so have to sbf to stock

      • Andy Woodybuzz

        if you never rooted your phone is there an easy way to go back to froyo?

        • yes, dowload rsdlite 4.9 and find the sbf for 2.2.1 and install that. if you are running a 64 bit OS like Win 7 64 bit it can get tricky

  • Brad

    kellex is a dope

      Its just a sync icon, should go away after its done, if not just do a simple data wipe/factory reset

    can someone just tell me what I need to do.. i don’t know anything about rooted or not.. I downloaded the original gingerbread leak that was released for DX.. my first time ever upgrading “unofficially” and so now I don’t really understand the process to get back to stock whatever and then download and load the new “kinda official” or whatever one.. I don’t care if I am rooted.. I just want a reliable gingerbread version.. hate that I tried to get it too early and now don’t know what to do.. the original leaked version has been making my AMAZINGLY awesome DX kinda laggy and buggy.. anyone wanna help a nube?

    • Ozzzmosis

      same here dude

    • tiberiumdj

      you will need to read up on how to SBF your phone back to stock man, its a little odd when you first do it but once you do it, its cake after that. there are plenty of forums and members that will help you and all the android/droid x sites.

    This is pathetic. Why do we have to manually install gingerbread. We all pay for this, don’t we have a right to have it loaded for us. We ALL need to somehow push for the REAL developers to get this on our phones. This is crazy. For months we have been waiting, and we have to go through all this work to get an unofficially version? I just do not see the sense in this. We as paying customers should not have to stand for this shit. I”m really frustrated about this. All We hear is, GINGERBREAD GINGERBREAD GINGERBREAD and we get SHIT!

    Come on people, I think I have a right to be frustrated.

    • VZW will push the update out when it’s ready for prime time. If you don’t want to install GB manually, then have a little patience and wait for the OTA update to be pushed to you. Nobody is forcing you to install it manually, so stop acting like a 3 year old and quit your bitching.

      The gingerbread update is hardly worth the time or effort that it takesto install it. The new update is mostly cosmetic and offers little if any functional improvement over froyo. My X is rooted and works great so i dont really care about gingerbread.

      • Agreed… I took a lot of time to custoimzing my rooted X. I can’t see any real reason the sbf and got back to a stock build out.

    Those who agree with me say YES. This is unfortunate that we all have to wait by our PHONES, our PHONES! for an update that should have come out weeks ago. We get exited because this SITE tells us “it is coming” “prepare for gingerbread” “OMG gingerbread to droid x everyone!” come on if you support me just reply yes and let’s get our REAL gingerbread, not actually manually download it.

    This site is clearly unreliable, they say an update by verizon is supposed to be administered, they even make multiple posts with details on skeptical evidence making everyone feel as if something is actually going to happen. How about you fools don’t just release information without concrete evidence and legitimate confirmation. What a waste of time, I’ll be sure to make sure cnet has something about the inability of droid life to release accurate information.

    • Me too haha, worse comes worse i’m due for an upgrade so i’ll just get a new phone >:) even though i have like no money

      • Andy Woodybuzz

        haha i got till like july 2012 but i havent really had any issues with this update I’ve just been trying to see if there was an easier way to get rid of it in case verizon does do an official OTA with different features or bug fixes that noone knows about but it doesnt look like it at allll i hate being so impatient sometimes lol

        • Likewise but ya only issue i’ve had with this update is the sync icon that’s it

          • Buckgrad

            I had the problem with the sync icon not going away. Is that what you’re referring to? I did a factory reset and it finally went away.

  • So what happens if i’ve installed this update but upon booting up it just sits there and looks pretty but doesn’t actually function if I click any apps, try to check my voicemail, etc??? 🙁

  • Anonymous

    Doesn’t work on my OG Droid.

  • Eadsrc

    I updated and everything seems fine. The only thing I have notice is the synching symbol is in the notifications bar and won’t go away.

    • Jasonkcornett

      me too

  • Anyone figure out how to get rid of that stupid Syncing part yet?

    • tiberiumdj

      nope still working on it, it might be verizon watching us all, im hiding under my bed till im sure.

      • Ya i heard someone mention something about a factory reset, but idk if i should do that from the recovery menu and if it would mess with the download. I’m sure nothing is gonna go wrong i just don’t know if the syncing is gonna mess with my data usage or some shit

        • tiberiumdj

          I’m about to run it through a factory reset ill let ya know

          • That’s the wipe data/factory reset in the menu you reach from Home/power right?

          • tiberiumdj

            ya

          • Alright let me know hopefully that’ll fix it and get rid of that sync notification and does factory reset wipe out all of your Apps/contacts?

          • tiberiumdj

            rebooting now, and yes it will

          • eh i can deal with that if it will get rid of that damn thing, you noticed slightly worse battery life post instillation as well?

          • tiberiumdj

            booted fine, and no sync icon, I skipped all the account set up and contact sync

          • Has it been a couple minutes? I know when i first power it off then on it’s gone but comes back after a minute

          • tiberiumdj

            no I’ll let her sit for a bit see if it comes back

          • Alright cool man, keep me updated

          • Still gone?

  • uggggh it just keeps saying installation aborted for me…

    • Chad

      WTF!! I just finished installing it and I noticed that the LED notification light isn’t working. Just like it didn’t work in the one leaked a couple weeks back.

  • Is the only downfall to having this not being able to OTA?

  • I’m confused – this came from one person’s phone. For all we know this could be a secret malicious file.

    I’m waiting for the official build.

  • Reginald Owens

    Just a couple of notes (no pun intended)

    Note Number 2 should read as follows:

    If you have EVER rooted your phone’s currently installed OS, even if you have unrooted it, you need to SBF back to stock 2.3.340.

    Note Number 5:

    If you have ever installed Clockwork Recovery (Bootstrap X), you will need to SBF back to stock 2.3.340.

    If you do not do this, you will get failures trying to update.

    • Jo

      how about if you never installed a custom rom? I used z4root and then unrooted. SBF sucks…

      • Reginald Owens

        If you have never installed a custom rom, but used Z4root to root your phone, then, unfortunately, you have to SBF your phone. You would fall into the same situation as me, in which I was running root (z4root) but the official 2.3.340. If you try to update, you’ll get an error code 7 on the validation. This is a different error than if you installed Bootstrap X.

        • Jo

          thanks for the info. i’m waiting to see if p3droid has anything to add when he releases the rooted version.

      • tiberiumdj

        I would just SBF its not that bad.

    • Can you link me to the 2.3.34 SBF?

  • Jasonkcornett

    Ok, I followed the directions exactly, as far as I can read, and now my DX will not operate. Is there a fix, or is it too late for me?

    • tiberiumdj

      what do you mean by “will not operate”?

      • Jasonkcornett

        It seems to be working now, after I hooked it up to my laptop. Right after the process, it would boot up seemingly normal, then the screen would go blank.

  • jwbyerly

    I am running a unrooted DX…I downloaded the file…Changed the name to update.zip moved to the SD Card…rebooted in recovery and it says the file can not be open…Should I unzip? Rename?

    • tiberiumdj

      no don’t unzip, make sure you name the file just update not update.zip,

    • update no .zip

  • hmmm…whats this mean?

    e:failed to verify whole-file signature
    e:signature verification failed
    installation aborted.

  • Andy Woodybuzz

    im seeing verizon isnt rolling out this update now or whatever but regardless if they do decide to do an ota soon and we update manually now will we be able to get official version or will it not even matter to much

  • DRH

    I have tried every file and method. It doesn’t work and that idiots Wipe method before installing did just that wiped everything. Spent the last hour + installing my apps. FAIL.

  • Can someone please link me on how to SBF back to .340?

    • tiberiumdj
      • I’m nervous about SBFing back is it hard?

        • tiberiumdj

          not at all, most people have issue with getting RSDlite to see their phone thats about it

          • Once i SBF will i be able to OTA back to froyo? Also the moto USB driver is that for the phone or the comp?

          • tiberiumdj

            the driver is for your comp, and yes once you SBF you usually need to do a factory reset then you will be 100% stock froyo

          • Factory reset is in the settings/privacy section correct? and i can’t find the droid X 2.1 SBF file

          • tiberiumdj

            Ill see if i can find a link for ya, and yes just the settings/privacy reset, after you SBF

          • Thanks man i appreciate all the help, this is kinda confusing to me and i’m just a little nervous

          • I found a 2.3.340 SBF

          • tiberiumdj

            ok sorry I was looking for the TBH file, cause I know it works

          • tiberiumdj

            Ill see if i can find a link for ya, and yes just the settings/privacy reset, after you SBF

          • Factory reset is in the settings/privacy section correct? and i can’t find the droid X 2.1 SBF file

          • Also bootloader is not the Power/home combo right?

          • tiberiumdj

            no bootloader is different power/both volume and camera keys hold then release, should say bootloader 30, battery ok, ok to program,

    does the pop up window when clicking on pictures no longer work on desktops?

    also, how do i get this website to stay in mobile view when im on it from my phone? an.droid-life.com (which is now dead and useless) is always in mobile view, the way it should be!

  • Shynesolo

    after i got gingerbread updated on phone im trying to see if I can get back to the boot menu and it lets me get to triangle symbol but now search button doesnt do anything i have to pull battery to get out of that screen so how do i go back to froyo till i get ota or am i stuck now

    • Lax15lhs

      im pretty sure now you have to use the power button in gingerbread to navigate the recovery menu

      • Shynesolo

        thank you

      • Shynesolo

        i see what you mean now sorry lol i used power and home to get into recovery menu but once i got there and the little android with triangle shows i cant hit the search button to actually see the menu now im confused lol

  • Miketoth73

    Went into bootloader and installed the update and saw the android guy and it finished and then asked for the phone to be rebooted. Rebooted it and now I can’t seem to get out of the red moto sign. Waited for 10 min and proceeded to pull battery and attempt to go into bootloader to factory reset the phone and I can’t even get into the recovery. I held the power and home button each time and it just goes round and round with the red moto sign. Any words?

  • Johnzenobia

    oh okay, whats funny is that when I used the zip file to go to unrooted version it booted up with the new gbread version.

  • UHm how about SBF back to 2.2.1 and having prepaid will the ESN/MEID stay and reactivation will not be needed?

  • not really sure what im doing wrong…when i get to the recovery screen and try to install it just says “install fail”…..help?

    • tiberiumdj

      is it finding the file?

      • yeah its not at all…i mean i renamed it and everything

        • tiberiumdj

          make sure you name it just update don’t add the .zip at the end

          • ok renamed it and just tried ti install now says “failed to read footer from /sdcard/update.zip”

          • tiberiumdj

            you might have a bad file then your file should be 111mb

          • could you post a link to a good one? all i find are 112mb

  • Edward

    So if we are running the leaked Gingerbread, can we still get the official OTA update when it rolls out from Verizon?

    • tiberiumdj

      no you will need to SBF back to .340

    • Tom

      All of the leaks in the past haven’t worked with the ota, so I don’t know why this one would.

  • Johnzenobia

    Verizon: Droid X Gingerbread rollout has not begun!
    http://blogs.computerworld.com/18122/verizon_droid_x_gingerbread_rollout

    • just b/c rollout hasn’t begun doesn’t mean they haven’t accidentally released the update to a few devices.

  • Anonymous

    So basically, if you don’t have a windows pc and are running the leaked 2.3.3, you’re screwed

    • Tom

      Pretty much! Or you could get a friend to help you, or you could try to install rsdlite using wine.

      • Anonymous

        -_- I wish Droid Life would warn about these things when they post these “OMG SO EXCITING DOWNLOAD NOW!!!!!” threads. My fault for not looking into it but still…

    • I got RSD Lite to work on my win 7 x64 today. I had to keep renaming the file finally renaming it to motorolarecovery.sbf worked, but you have to make sure to hold shift + Left click and then run as administrator

  • Edwardbell36

    How to you get back to 2.3.340 if you are already running the leaked version of gingerbread?

  • So, does anyone actually know if this is any better than the rooted GBlur that we already got our hands on? Or do we just assume because he numbers are higher?

    • tiberiumdj

      I would wait for a root to come out for it, it is really nothing amazing.

  • mikedroidx34

    i think ill stick to liberty 2.0.1 🙂

  • Travis#83

    okay I did the update and it worked fine but once it loaded the 3G and signal bar turned blue, its not white anymore and the sync emblem will not go away…. please help. thank you

    • Travis#83

      disregaurd, after doing a simple on and off of the phone everything is working, thanks guys.

      • Travis#83

        I spoke to soon, both problems returned…. any ideas on how to fix?

  • not sound like a noob but if you have stock 2.3.340 and rooted it, can you just unroot and then install the update?

    • Tom

      I was wondering this same thing. If your were to uninstall superuser.apk, and delete su and insmod from /system/bin I don’t know how it would be detectable.

  • Fourwheeling95

    got it thanks guys 🙂

  • Anonymous

    Yeah, i think i’ll pass on stock gingerbread with motoblur, until someone comes out with a motorblur-less rom. Fission for the meantime.

  • Ettore1495

    I have tried this three times and nothing. im not an idiot, but this just didt work. I downloaded the file (from android central and droid life neither seemed to work) i renamed the whole file update.zip adn followed the procedure etc. but then i tried just update and that didnt work. I dont know what to do

    • Tom

      Where are you getting snagged up? Any errors?

      • Ettore1495

        it will find locate the file and then say something about how the file isnt there

        • Tom

          From your phone, go to your app list, open the “files” app. Choose phone files, scroll down and see if the update.zip file is there.

    • Lakerzz

      Try renaming it to jut “update” without the “zip”.

  • Fourwheeling95

    Should we unzip it?

    • no
      when you rename it just call it update not update.zip

    • no
      when you rename it just call it update not update.zip

    • tiberiumdj

      ya don’t do that it scares the ladies

  • Rain_king46

    Im confused. Is the above file and process the Gingerbread update that must be applied over Froyo 2.3.340? Or what is this exactly? I am currently running the original leaked Gingerbread before it was rooted. Do I do the steps above? or am i SBFing back to Froyo 2.3.340? Please speak slow, clearly I am challenged today.

    • tiberiumdj

      you will need to sbf back to .340, factory reset, reactivate, then just follow above

    • tiberiumdj

      Read note #1 and note #2 on the post.

      • Rain_king46

        I did. That is what confused me. The file is labeled 2.3.340 but really it is update FROM 2.3.340 right?

        • tiberiumdj

          it sure is

        • Tom

          Correct. Weird file name.

  • Fourwheeling95

    i got it on the root sd and in the recovery mode it cant find the file?

    • Lakerzz

      The root of the sd card just means not in any particular folder, but on the sd card. (Basicly, just drag the file near, but not on any folder icon on your sd card, and drop it.)

  • Fourwheeling95

    explain in greater detail how to do this

    • Tom

      I would have helped, but I don’t care for random people that demand help.

  • after installing this one, can i sbf back to 2.2.1??

    • Tom

      You should be able to. I was able to with the last gb build, and it should behave the same.

  • Gerrysafford86

    so whats the difference between this and the rooted leaked version from last week?

  • after installing this.. can i sbf back to 2.2.1??

    • tiberiumdj

      yes

  • Michael Rango

    Uh, nothing happens when I press search.. anybody know why?

    • Same issue, when i try to go into recovery mode the triangle shows up but the search button does nothing, I’m trying to get rid of the sync notification

      • tiberiumdj

        ya I can get into the bootloader, have not figured out recovery just yet…

        • Likewise….

          • Tapping the power button worked for me

          • thanks i’ll try that, I’m trying to get rid of that stupid sync symbol

          • power button didn’t work for me.

          • tiberiumdj

            well it can be done just did it not sure what I did, lol

          • You don’t remember what you hit? haha

          • tiberiumdj

            try the home and power button when you see the little droid guy press both volume buttons

          • I’ll try that and let ya know

  • What’s the deal with the syncing symbol, do i have to reflash or will it go away eventually, or can i even just ignore it?

    • I had that happen with my DX two weeks ago and had to do a system reset after booting into recovery. It sucked because I had already got everything back the way that I wanted it. But it worked on the leaked 4.5.573.MB810 system version.

  • Ufish2

    sounds to me like where going to be building some brick house’s..if your not sure how to do this then dont try…WAIT untill someone lays it out for you step by step esp. if you dont know how to SBF back …you could be in for alot of headaches…this is a leaked GB too……….. not offical so if your phone is stock wait for Verizon..good luck to ya’ll U>)));>2 :):):)

  • Ozzzmosis

    i updated but when I try to get off my home screen my screen goes blank and I have to pull my battery out to reboot

  • Dman27

    so is it worth unrooting, going back to stock (from apex 1.4.1) and updating this? especially with verizon tracking down the rooted users?

  • Dman27

      Probably not because you are going to be SBFing back tommorow and reinstalling the rooted version.

  • Dietsch79

    So it installed and worked fine for about 5 minutes. Then it started acting very sluggish and doesn’t wanna work smoothly anymore. Trying to boot into recovery and when I hit the search button nothing…

    • Never mind it’s slowly loading

  • Txmaninblack

    I am on the leaked gingerbread unrooted update from last week can I just rename file and do recovery or do I have to sbf back?

  • Anyone know a rough time of how long this takes, just out of curiosity.

    “E:Error in tmp/sideload.package.zip

    Can anyone help?

      Same here

  • Doctorota

    I just did everything, downloaded this and renamed it dropped it onto the base of my SD card and went to install and it said update.zip not found

    • Badassbosoxfan

      just name the file on ur SD card as update. Not update.zip

    • John

      do u have the U in update.zip capitalized?

    • Tom

      You now most likely have a file named update.zip.zip

      • Thanks i got it going now it’s at the patching system files stage, about how long does this install take roughly?

        • Tom

          Probably around 10 minutes or so for the system to install.

          • You know how to get rid of the syncing sign next to the 3g symbol or if it does anything to the phone? i.e. is it ignorable

          • Tom

            Im not even on the new build yet so im not sure. Make sure that it isn’t just the dlna sync symbol, which can be taken off within the dlna settings.

          • it’s right next to the 3g symbol and isn’t the one used when hooked up for media

          • Lakerzz

            You most likely have to do a “factory reset” to get rid of it. Hopefully you don’t have your homescreens passwords, etc, set up already. 🙂
            (No biggie if you do. You’ll just have to do it all over again.)

    • how bout letting it finish syncing? that just may work.

      • Larry

        Um.. 48 hours in (wifi connection) i get the feeling there may be a problem. But thanks for your helpful tone 🙂

        • 48 hours? didnt this just come out? o_O

          • SOME of us experienced the SYNKing issue with the version that was leaked 2 weeks ago and that is how you get rid of it.

    • haterMchaterson

      you have to do a factory reset. it will go away after that.

  • Dietsch79

    Launcherpro doesn’t like to work with this does it lol?

    • Lakerzz

      I noticed that as well. Not real bad, except for the screen previews lag like crazy.

  • Larry

    So is it worth all the effort if you already have 573 rooted with the tbh wifi hack? All seems well for me besides the irritating sync icon issue.

    • Tim242

      To fix the Sync icon issue, factory reset.

      • Larry

        Thanks Tim. I’m still gonna hold off on this madness. 573 is fine for a few days until this calms down.

  • I’m rather annoyed that Moto is still using the same 2.6.32 kernel on their Gingerbread builds. The AOSP kernel is 2.6.35 and Moto’s build is still on 2.6.32. What gives?

  • Davidukfl

    glad i didn’t install the GB leak last week. I’ll be waiting for some nice roms to show up based off this before taking the plunge

    Boot into recovery and wipe the data and cache. Then do a factory reset from recovery. That happened to me when I installed the last leak. I thought I had bricked my DX lol.

  • JagoX

    I’ve noticed (while putting CM7 on my wife’s DInc) that most of the current kernels are 2.6.37.x…while the DX is stuck at 2.6.32.9. Does this actually mean anything? Just a curious question 🙂

  • upgraded to the Tbolt yesterday, maybe I’ll load this though for when I sell the phone in the next few days…thanks for the headsup

  • Just loaded and I’m stuck on the eye… hmmm

        Does it prompt you to resize videod when trying to send a video message?

  • when will it be official to download from verizon?

  • Akowal

    Now, I’m not rooted. Say I do drop this onto my SD card and update..

    How easy it is for me to get back to the default build im on now, pre gingerbread?

    • Tom

      Your going to have to SBF to get back.

      • Akowal

        Ive never SBF’d before (my friends are all rooted but none of them are around right now for me to ask)

        Is SBFing as simple as putting a file into the SD card and booting into recovery like updating to GB?

        • tiberiumdj

          no, you SBF with a program on your computer called RSD lite

  • Ambersring

    Can somebody try to send a video file and see if it prompts you to resize, please? I really like this feature on the official build.

    Did anybody have a problem using the android Wifi app for rooted users on the leaked rooted build of 2.3? When ever I tried to enable it. Verizon’s hotspot app would kick in and show up on the notification bar instead. Suffice to say I was forwarded to a verizon webpage with plan rates of the hotspot feature and my other device would not be able to web surf.

    • Same here. Your not alone. I am not able to keep Picasa logged in for the gallery either.

  • Mr.Joe

    Is this safe? I’m so scared to try it :3

      I did it and my phone has not exploded yet 🙂

  • Badassbosoxfan

    NOw that I have it loaded. Can one of you experienced Droider’s tell me what gingerbread offers over the normal OS? Thank you

  • droidx4me

    Might be a dumb question but i keep getting an error when i try and install the update from recovery mode. Will wiping the handset fix that error?

    • tiberiumdj

      It could, also make sure you just rename the file update, don’t type in the .zip or it will really be named update.zip.zip

  • Apostrafee

    im running liberty and oreo slice, is it diffucult to get back to stock and then do this?

  • xSiNx

    how do I upgrade from the version of gingerbread that was leaked? I do not have the older version of blur and dont know how to roll it back any help?

    • Ambersring

      If I’m reading this right, the leaked version is the one you have to upgrade from. As long as you haven’t rooted, you should be good

  • surf2

    doesnt ask for plan change permissons on wifi hot spot!!!!!

      Do you think that means Verizon will be giving their hotspot service free?

  • Anonymous

    For what its wiporth, when I flashed the previous version of gingerblur, the search button wouldnt work to get into recovery menu I had to press both volume buttons simultaneously when the triangle came up to get into the recovery menu.

  • Dietsch79

    It’s not working. Keeps saying the files not there. Double checked on my PC and using Astro and still nothing.

    • THE KING OF XXX

      are you rebooting into recovery? shut phone off . hold down home button and press power.. keep holding.. when screen comes on hit the search button and then select update zip using volume button… IDK

      • Dietsch79

        That’s what I’ve been doing. I select the apply update thing and it’s saying the files not there or whatever.

        • Badassbosoxfan

          Ditto….

          • droidx4me

            worked for me too… just a quick name change

        • THE KING OF XXX

          when you rename it make sure it is just update… do not put .zip just plain update .. it worked for me perfect.. just try that

          • Badassbosoxfan

            ohhhhhhhh………

          • Badassbosoxfan

            oh snap I think it is working….you the man…lol.

      Redownload the file. Make sure its not named update.zip.zip

        it is not. In boot screen shows update.zip

      put it on ur sd card remane it update and nothing else my guess

      • THE KING OF XXX

        re name sorry

    • surf2

      make sure the file is not unzipped and on the root of your sd card

      • Dietsch79

        Mines not unzipped and I keep getting errors…

      • Badassbosoxfan

        I am just dragging and dropping the file doing nothing else but renaming it

        • surf2

          yes u drop it onto sd and name it update.zip and thats it. no unzipping no adding to folders

          • Badassbosoxfan

            No it just needs to be update not update.zip. It would not work that way.

  • Yo momma like it

    Once again….until the root access method is released with this version there is no real point to download it unless u are un-rooted. Patience is a Virtue……which in the android community doesnt mean shit…lol

    Not to sound like a noob, but, what are some advantages of a rooted phone over a non-rooted phone?

  • THE KING OF XXX

    Its good So far it has social built in for LINKEDIN other than that the market is missing some apps..but its good

  • I can’t wait for this to come out for D2

  • bob

    I don’t see the point of downloading this, I love the CRT animation. Are there any major differances that make it worth it?

    • Why would you rather have Froyo than Gingerbread? It’s newer, improved, and better overall. The best improvements are not ones that can be seen, but performance enhancements. Think of all the time they’ve had to improve the OS up until this release.

      • Root or custom roms. I am absolutely not giving up my Liberty ROM for an unrooted Gingerbread…

  • Rishi

    if you tether, even rooted, IMO I wouldn’t recommend this; i spent a bunch of time on the earlier one trying to work the tethering properly, and it just wasn’t working that well.

  • Scea67

    Did this exactly as described, does not work, install aborted every single time

    • Anonymous

      I know its trivial, but make sure the file isn’t named update.zip.zip. Also, try downloading it again..coulda been a corrupt download depending on the source you got it from.

    • tiberiumdj

      check your file size, sounds like you have a bad file.

  • Cwzrd23

    3G icon looks better than leak version

    • MrWolf

    so does this have the crt animation or are we going to have to wait for root to get the crt animation?

  • if you do this download update, does it make you ineligible for future OTA updates, similar to being rooted?

    or is this a legit thing, and it basically is for impatient people that don’t want to wait for the OTA to materialize…if it does?

    • Anonymous

      We are not sure if this is the official build that Verizon will send out or not. If you update to this and they send out a different one, you will likely have to SBF back to 2.2.1 first.

      • that’s the info i wanted to hear.

        i shall remain as patient as possible…and continue checking the system updates thing all night. haha.

      • I am new to all of this…I am non-rooted and plan on following your steps above to get GB. If this is not the official build how do you SBF back to 2.2.1? Also what does SBF mean? Sorry for being so clueless.

        • John

          no offense man but i’d wait if you are that new to this. it’ll save you a LOT of headaches, honestly..

      Use RSD lite and SPF back to stock.

    I just completed my SBF to stock, let see what the OTA GB update looks and runs.

  • Spill

    Will updating this way clear any of the data on my phone?

    • Davros / aka Chris Nimon

      You can back up your data and apps with Mybackup.(works with non-rooted phones) After loading GB and signing in with your google acct let it sync for a while to get most of your stuff back. Then reload mybackup or what ever app you used to reload your data and apps.

      • Spill

        I’ve already got everything backed up to Google, I just want to keep one of my apps hi score data, as far as I know this can’t be done without root unless the app offers it as a feature. I figure an ota update wouldn’t kill my data, however I want to be sure, especially since the way to go about this manually is similar to doing a hard reboot.

        • Davros / aka Chris Nimon

          Mybackup will work with a non-rooted phone. It will restore your hi score. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.rerware.android.MyBackupPro&feature=search_result

          • Spill

            From the link “MyBackup Pro will work on all Android mobile devices, regardless if they have root access or not.
            Users who have a rooted phone: You can backup apk+data as well as market links!”

            I’m assuming my high scores would be filed under the category apk+data, I’d need to be rooted for that. Since I’m not rooted, and I already have everything else already backed up to Google, I don’t assume purchasing Mybackup will serve me any purpose. I might mention none of this answers my original question.

  • Bill H

    traditionally, this is the night I wait up until some insane hour for someone to post a root method, then realize that after I finally install it at 0300 I have to spend the next 2 hours setting everything the way I want it, signing back into apps, etc. gonna be a long night.

        where is root folder? Thanks in advance.

        • Badassbosoxfan

          no root folder. Just drag and drop into the main area of sd card and not in a file. Then rename to update..not update.zip

          • Snrdos

            Doesn’t that depend on what you see with your version of windows explorer. I see the entire file name including the file extension not just the name so If I do not rename it update.zip it doesn’t seem to see the file with my phone. If I am hiding the extensions of known file types in explorer then renaming as indicated would create a file that is called update.zip.zip.

      Thats a dumb statement. How about just helping people who may not be aware of something instead of using every opportunity to belittle them just because you are aware of some small tidbit of info that they are not privy to yet? I’m sure there was a time when you had to ask the same question.

      • No, he is right. If you don’t understand that simple step, you should not be trying this. You should go out and do some research. All you young folks want everything spoon fed to you. I bet there are hundreds and hundreds of websites and forums out there that explain how to put something on the root of your SD card. A simple Google search will answer any Android related questions 9 out of 10 times.

        • BobJor

          Funny, I had the impression that this was one of those “hundreds and hundreds” of sites…but it seems that most sites I look at have people making this same statement. “Ohhh, open source software! It’s for everyone to play with! As long as you know it inside out like me!” Sheesh!

      • sigh

        Believe me; I’m all about trying to help noobs. Yes everyone once was one, but you shouldn’t just jump into this. You can really eff up your phone if you do not know what you are doing. If you do know how to SBF, or have nano back ups, or have your apps/data backed up or even know how boot into recovery then you should really research it before you try to mess with your phone. You can easily brick it or get stuck in a boot loop be up sh!ts creek not doing how to revert back. Google isn’t hard.

        • sigh back

          ^^^ im pretty sure you didnt read. On most websites now you will just find statements like “if you dont know what you are doing, dont mess with it.” Isnt that what this kind of a website is for? How will the newbies ever know anything if all they get is this bs.

      Connect phone to computer. put phone in USB mode. Then on computer click start, then computer, then your phones sd card. When your phones sd card opens up drag the new file to it. MAKE SURE it says “COPY TO H DRIVE” or what ever drive it gave your phone. DO NOT drop it into any folder. After you drop it you should see it in the list of files.
