Verizon Signs Off on Official Gingerbread for DROIDX? Time to Prepare for the Update

Somewhere on the internet you heard that Motorola was hoping to get an official build of Gingerbread (Android 2.3) for the DROIDX signed off on by Verizon today…oh that’s right, you heard it right here from us.  And according to our homie P3Droid, Verizon has done just that, meaning we are days away from seeing the build made available to our phones.  So how do you get your phone to a state where it can receive the update?  Well, a method has been provided that doesn’t include flashing an SBF back to Froyo.

A new build (4.5.595) has been made available and will apparently allow you to accept the update when it arrives.  I know that some of you just got done flashing 4.5.591, but P3 assures us that you need to jump up to .595 in order to get the official build which should be 4.5.596.  And if you are running either of the other two leaks (.573 or .588) then you’ll need to update to 4.5.595 as well.  Make sense?

Download:  Full Stock – No Root | Full Odexed | Full Deodexed

Update:  If you want to receive the official update, you’ll need to be on the “Full Stock – No Root” version.

Instructions:

1.  Drop the file on your SD card.
2.  Boot into recovery using the Bootstrap.
3.  Install the zip through Clockwork Recovery.
4.  Enjoy version 4.5.595 of GB.

Full support can be found at MyDroidWorld.

    I’m trying to go from 4.5.588 to 4.5.595 and get “e:signature verification failed installation failed”

  • Kamionek

    I would like to do the update how ever I get “e:signature verification failed installation failed”

  • Bigjay0486

    im running the full stock no root because i had thought i would be able to recieve the update when it was pushed, that isnt the case i keep gettin a message saying my device is up to date… anyway i dont mind stayin on this build I just want to get root back, is it possible with this build? if not, how would i flash another build on with out root access?
    thanks for any help

  • Risenequinox

    I can’t pull the update and i did the full stock no root. Now i cant root it, not really wanting to SBF since i will lose most of what i have on phone… doesn’t this suck.

    • Bigjay0486

      thats where im at 🙁

  • bGrader

    I am new to this … I am on .588 and would like to be on .595 so that I can get .596 from Verizon.
    Can you please elaborate on:2. Boot into recovery using the Bootstrap.3. Install the zip through Clockwork Recovery.Do I need any other software to perform step 2 and 3 you mentioned in your post?Last time, I went to .588 by copying the update.zip to sd card and then turned on the phone by holding the “home” key and then press “search” key once the triangle (with !) appeared. I tried the same thing this time but it’s stuck on triangle (with !) and nothing is happening when I press the ‘search’ key.
    Sorry for my ignorance.

    • Evank

      Try a battery pull, reboot into recovery and clear cache and wipe data/ factory reset. That usually takes care of that.

  • guest99

     so, does it require us to rename the zip to update.zip?

  • Nunya

     Nice, just bricked my rooted phone with it. Stuck at M logo, trying to recover and do factory resets.  Formatted the whole damn thing, and still can’t boot.  Yeah… THANKS *SSHOLES!

    • Clay921

      I doubt you bricked it. It sounds like you need to download RSD Lite and the SBF file for 2.3.340 and SBF your phone.  I’ve had that happen and that’s what worked

    It wouldn’t chock me if the update gets delayed until the DX2 (what a waste of time that phone is) gets released. We can’t have the OLD version of the phone running a new OS before the NEW phone gets released now can we? Not that it matters to me I been running the GB leaks forever now, I won’t bother with an official OTA because like all offical VZW builds it will loaded with shite.

  • Roberto Taylor

    Kellex, just so you know the file you have linked for the Full Stock – No Root is bad. It has been updated by P3Droid but the link he has up is temporarily unavailable. Anyone who downloads this and tries to upgrade will get an aborted install and will have to SBF back to Froyo.

  • djdank1

    I have the same question. I have 4.5.588 installed. I removed my root. thinking it would prevent me from getting OTA updates. I now wanted to get the new 4.5.595. installed it,booted in recover,went to install and I get an verification error. what do I need to do so I can once again get the OTA update when it comes out?

    • Ricchinifamily

      I have the same problem and since .595 is NOT signed, we are stuck unless we either root or sbf back to froyo.

  • Toddhoof516

    so if i did a back up with bootstrap and was running liberty and want to go back to stock build just install the full stock-no root option and all should be good to go? sorry little newbie

  • kaymo

    So I’ve never downloaded any of the hacks or programs you are talking about here, and I’m still on version 2.3.340. Is the update only going to be for 4.5.596? And if so can someone go into further detail as to getting there, because I’m utterly confused! Thanks!

  • Just a reminder that if you SBF to .340 (froyo) you have to go to official .588 THEN to .595. To get the OTA when it is released

    • The stock link is broken you will fail to install and have to sbf every time!

      • I saw that. Now I finished installing .588. Do you know if I have to root that version in order to get stock .595?

    • Kevin L

      Why do I have to go to .588 to get the OTA if I SBF’d back to .340? Won’t verizon just see I am on Froyo and OTA me?

    • Clay921

      Am I missing something b/c I thought P3’s OP on this said one of the ways to upgrade to the OTA was to sbf back to .340?

  • Tarsis Brito
  • Update – according to P3Droid you CANNOT go from froyo (.340) to GB (.595)

    So the most important question is, will Tethering still be possible?
    Currently its not possible, generally, with froyo, but if I freeze data manager apk with titanium, then i can tether freely. Will this be, or something similar, be possible on the new GB?

  • I intended to send you this very small word just to thank you over again with your unique advice you’ve discussed on this page. This has been certainly tremendously generous with you to provide publicly what a few individuals might have supplied for an electronic book in order to make some money on their own, especially considering the fact that you might well have done it if you decided. Those secrets as well served as a easy way to fully grasp that other people have the identical passion like my very own to learn very much more on the subject of this matter. I’m certain there are thousands of more enjoyable moments up front for people who discover your site.

  • Jonjon2727

    I don’t think I qualify as a stupid person, but by saying that we do not need to SBF back to Froyo, I thought that meant we could install over our current leak. I tried to do this and it appears to be incorrect, if that is what your post intended to imply. If you could clarify and possibly post some instructions, I can say it might help me stop wanting to kill you 🙂

    Can I go straight from 340 to 595, or are there any intermediate steps? I’m new to the root/ROM/etc scene

    • Maverick1276

      No, you have to be on some leak of gingerbread. would recommend the 588 leak as it udates the baseband. Follow instructions carefully, and above all, after flashing 588 and going to 595, do not rename the file to update.zip. When in recovery after going to select file go to downloads in the menu. Flash, reboot and enjoy. I think that’s where people are having the problems

      • So I’m confused. So do you have to be or NOT have to be rooted in order to update this recent one?

        *And yes, I’m completely aware that it says “using the bootstrap” and into “bootstrap recovery”; however, I’m also confused because most of us are using .588, UNROOTED. So I guess, do we have to root our phones in order for us to gain the latest update?

          instructions can be found here.*Note* – If you didn’t jump the gun and flash the non-rooted version

          download the .zip file, flash it like you normally would a ROM, and ignore this

          2. Download the 2.3.340 SBF file for the DX. [Here]
          3. Download, install and open RSD lite 4.8. [Here]
          4. Plug your phone into your Windows PC and turn your phone off.
          5. Boot into the bootloader by holding Volume Up + Camera + Power.
          6. Your computer will likely install new drivers at this point.
          7. Once RSD lite recognizes your phone, hit the “…” box and choose the
          2.3.340 SBF file.
          8. Click “Start.”
          9. When it finishes and gets to 100%, power your phone off.

          12. Navigate down to wipe data/factory reset, select it with camera, say
          “yes.”
          13. When it finishes, reboot your phone.
          14. Download z4root 1.3.0 and root your phone.
          15. Download DX Bootstrap and bootstrap your recovery.
          16. Reboot into recovery.
          17. Choose “install zip from sd card”, “choose”, then the dxgbrooted.zip.
          18. Your phone will now install Gingerbread with root.
          19. When you reboot, your phone will appear to bootloop. Let it.
          20. If it does it for say, 5 minutes, just pull your battery and reboot.
          21. To Boostrap after installing Gingerbread, you’ll need to use
          the D2 Bootstrapper.
          22. Enjoy!

      no. The .588 was an accidental OTA that went out to someone. This was compiled and not signed for Motorola’s recovery.

    I am running Liberty 2.2.1 custom ROM, overclocked, with all the GB features but not the bloat. If you are running a quality custom ROM there is no need to upgrade to GB. Actually, it would be a downgrade IMO. The best part of the Android is custom ROMs. Forget the OS updates!!!

  • Sorum Chris

    I did this and now my phone is stuck on the “M” logo, what should I do?

    • try to go into recovery menu and either reflash it or delete your data and try to reboot. Might have to SBF if all else fails.

    After 4 SBFs and my first bad experience with flashing 1 of the 4 GB leaks. I would say forget this update and just SBF back to Froyo when the OTA is released.

  • jawhawker

    maybe you need to be on .591 to get to .595?

    • Anonymous

      no you don’t.

  • scrage

    Im currently on the liberty mod running froyo on a droid x, how do I bring my phone back so it can take a ota update?

  • Drew

    can you flash this over ApeX2.0 beta?

  • jawhawker

    thanks I am sure I can figure it out. donno if anyone else had this problem but booting into recovery is different for gingerbread i think. when you power up using the home/power way, you have to press both volume keys down at once instead of using the search button. power button is one that you use to select your choices.

    when i reboot I get a blank srceen

  • 11knives

    Im running .573 with root. Can someone please explain step by step what I need to do to get to latest build that will except update. Thanks!

  • jayhawker

    a couple of questions…

    do we need to rename to update.zip

    I am running .588 and flashing that worked fine but when I try to do this one (non rooted) i get the esignature verification failed..

    I am sure I am making a simple mistake but any suggestions?

    • Anonymous

      you do not need to rename it to update.zip and verification failed could be a bad download. Maybe try downloading the file again.

  • YourMomsLooseTwaht

    Can you SBF back to Froyo from this leak?

    • Nathanbull33

      Pretty sure you can SBF from any rom or leak you are running. Thats the whole point of SBF…

  • Anonymous

    Running .588 – gingerbread without the new Verizon bloatware and its rock solid. I hope it does NOT update to .596. I do NOT want all of Verizon’s crap.

    Thank you Kellex, now I’m certain I’ll wear out my menu button by the time the weekend is over…

    Has it been confirmed that the OG Droid will never receive Gingerbread?

    • Anonymous

      Pretty sure the OG Droid will not see an official GB release. You would have to resort to a custom ROM such as CyanogenMod 7.0.2 for example.

    • Anonymous

      Confirmed? Not to my knowledge

      More than likely? I’d say so…

  • gdubs

    So if your running .588 and have no root then by just doing the no root .595 install it will work fine, correct?

    • Anonymous

      no. You need root as this must be installed via Clockwork Recovery.

  • Cdre2k2

    which zip file do I download?

  • Which bootstrap do we use to flash it? I am running the leaked GB I think it is the first leak.

    • Anonymous

      D2

  • If you need help, go to the forum. The link is in the bottom of the article.

  • Which bootstrap do we use. DX or D2?

  • Albinosquirrel

    I read all the comments and I am still a bit confused:
    I have GB .573 not rooted
    Do I need to .sbf back to froyo or
    can i root .573, D2 Bootstrap, flash .595?

    If i need to .sbf, is there a way I can make a backup now? (with GB .573 no root)

    Thanks for the help!

      You can can go your root method.

  • Skyskioc

    HELP ! What does this mean for us runnng LIBERTY 2.0 ? What do we need to do to get this update HELP !

    • kcrang

      sbf back to stock .340, root it, then flash new .595 (clear cache/data of course)

      • Anonymous

        If I am running apex 2.0 should I just wait for the apex update, that would include the new GB changes?

    • dude relax. youre gonna need to sbf back to stock froyo first off. im sure youll get the OTA from there. if you want more help go to the forums. and fyi, people arent usually inclined to help the people that are screaming HELP HELP…

      • @twitter-30340497:disqus On liberty 2.0 can I restore on of my stock back ups and go from there? Never SBFed before kinda intimidated to do so

  • Sorum Chris

    Do I use DroidX Recovery Bootstrap, or Droid2?

    • Anonymous

      Droid 2 bootstrap

    • kcrang

      if you are already on leaked gb you should use droid 2 bootstrap, otherwise droid x bootstrap should be ok when flashing from froyo

  • Nice.
    Does anyone know if installing the GB update will reset the phone completely? Icons/Apps/config settings/etc.
    What kind of back end work do we need to do after the GB update assuming we’re stock.
    Thanks,

    • kcrang

      always recommended to clear cache/data, that means you will lose all your data and apps… get titanium backup pro so you can backup everything

    • Anonymous

      If you are already running a leak, and no themes (CRT on/off is ok) you DO NOT need to erase anything, just install over 573 or 588

  • guest

    I have liberty 1.5 installed. What is the right way to put 4.5.595 on my dx?

    • Malonzo85

      If you have liberty it should be the same method as flashing any other rom

    • kcrang

      sbf back to stock .340 froyo and then root then flash .595 (don’t forget to clear data/cache!)

      • Malonzo85

        I didn’t think you had to sbf back to froyo from liberty but I could be wrong.

        • kcrang

          it’s always safer to go back to stock and then flash any rom

          • Malonzo85

            Good to know, thanks. I put the first GB leak on my phone and then tried to flash a rom through clockwork back to liberty 1.5 and ended up having to flash back to stock using rsd lite anyways. Good (stressful) learning experience I guess lol.

        • Anonymous

          from a custom theme its highly recommended you do.

  • YourMomsLooseTwaht

    He forgot to add you must choose the non-rooted- version to accept the OTA update.

  • Deerslayer2008

    I have z4 root, other than that stock what do I need for the ota Update? will i be able to reroot my phone after i get GB?

      If you update to GB via OTA Update then you will have to wait til someone finds a root exploit and releases the root method before you can root.

    • Yes, but you’ll need to get hold of GingerBreak. z4root doesn’t work on GB

  • Opherb

    Once again, where is the Incredible? Didn’t it come out six months before Droid X? How about GB for Droid Incredible?!

      you can. you just will lose root after OTA. no big deal

      Me im sticking to stock 2.2 to get the update. Doesn’t make since to me that you can be on gb and get a gb update. Its simlpy easier to go back to stock and wait. No issues

          same here…SBF’d and tried again….same error…..currently SBF’ing again…..anyone know what this is happening

          • seems like the update only works if you are on another GB leak, NOT from Froyo.

    It is about GD time! I was sick of hearing about all the leaks, and not the official OTA update.

      Did you read this all the way? Cause it says “And if you are running either of the other two leaks (.573 or .588) then you’ll need to update to 4.5.595 as well.”
      Just sayin.

        I am not rooted, how do I install 595?

          Read the articel it has instructions man.

          Download: Full Stock – No Root | Full Odexed | Full Deodexed

          Instructions:1. Drop the file on your SD card.2. Boot into recovery using the Bootstrap.3. Install the zip through Clockwork Recovery.
          4. Enjoy version 4.5.595 of GB.

          • YourMomsLooseTwaht

            This is for people ALREADY on a GB leak, not Froyo.

          • Mneighbo

            Actually, it won’t work for everyone:

            The upgrade path does not include those who are on Gingerbread .573/.588/.591 – Make Sure You Read Below

        • YourMomsLooseTwaht

          You must root, boot into bootsrap revovery and update the .zip .

            What app will root 595?

  • Can’t wait for the official GB… But the timing seriously sucks. I flashed 4.5.591 and Apex 2.0.0 beta just yesterday!

    • anon

      I did the same. And trying to SBF back to 2.3.340 just to get this OTA… honestly, not worth it. I’m just gonna hope Fab comes out quick with the OTA in a newer version of Apex

      Now I understand why the updates are always so delayed at VZW – for BB, Droid, even iOS. Its not for quality, it to add Verizon crapware.

  • Anonymous

    You mean we’re just days away from Verizon suddenly pulling the update. Ho hum.

  • Raptor007

    How about GB on the rest of the Verizon line up, like the ThunderBolt, Fascinate, Charge (you have to ship a phone to get an update I guess), etc, etc.

    Do we get 2.3.3 on the DX2 or did you scrap that too.

  • Stephen D

    What about the Droid 2/D2 Global?

    • Jg127

      Wondering the same here. It seems like a D2 update shouldn’t be far behind the DX, but I haven’t heard anything. Keep us updated on GB for D2/D2G please!!

      • Ted

        Yes, I am tired of this site only reporting on phones they like or own. Can you please include some update information about all phones in the Droid line? It’s unlikely that your ‘source’ only has information on this one phone.

        • Mth2134

          Easy. His source reports what is at least heard thru multiple channels. And he has a d2 so it has nothing to do with that.

        • Then please, Please, PLEASE go to another site and stop coming to this one.
