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


*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!

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…?????

    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?

    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 But, don’t want to use this version (probably outdated now) and brick my phone.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?

    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?!
