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.

  • Kamionek

  • Bigjay0486

    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.

     Rooted with z4root, booted into recovery tried to install the zip file (Full Stock) – and it failed. Now I’m stuck at the M logo. Am I bricked?

    • Evank

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

      • Rhamses

         dont work at all i got no clue why im4.5.573 rooted and dont let me bootload either

    • Rhamses

      im rooted im running 4.5.573 it just dont work dont even bootload to use the sbf program 

    • Rhamses

  • Rhamsesa

  • 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 

  • Dan Sprague

    If I am on stock Froyo and I want to install the latest gingergread leak, what do I need to do? Sorry, I am a newbie here. 

  • Cheesegrit

    So will this work if I have a non-rooted droid x?

    • Sketch2000

  • mustardhomie

  • Splicer78

    Anybody’s phone acting laggy after installing this? 

    • dude

       yes, terribly…  if I press on a contact to call them, it literally takes about 20 seconds before the phone screen pops up and I dial out… so bizarre

  • Schindler557

    I need help, I unzipped this from MyDroidWorld and ran into problems.  When I rebooted, my phone will not start up - I think I bricked it.  Anything I can do?
     

    • http://twitter.com/rudy79g Rudy Guzman

      I think we both did the same thing, I’m stuck in the boot loop! 

      • Vtxtank

        You need to use RTD to fix it 

        • Sketch2000

           A Resistance Temperature Detector?

    What happened to live support? I’m in desperate need of help, I’m stuck in boot loop after trying to just install GB .595 from froyo, any answers anyone?

  • Splicer78

    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.

  • Rishikesh

    what is clockwork Recovery, it is different from boot loading?lockwork Recovery, it is different from boot loading?

  • Spiderman_00

    Every single time I try to download the file it just stops. Is there not a working mirror up for the .595?

  • AndyC

    I don’t know if it’s just me but I can’t get this thing to download 100% i can download other files from megaupload no problem, but this one will start fast and get slower and slower until it just stops all together.

  • zroidGuest

    Is there a video for this process?

  • Skreemer311

    i did that factory reset while running the.588 no root. i cant download apps nor update the ones i have. if i root and do all this, will i be able to download the bootstrap recovery from the market for $2? and do i use the x or 2 recovery?

  • Evan

    Wait so if I am using build 4.5.588 I can not just drop it in my phone and then try to install it like I did .588? Can someone help me out here?

    • Kyle

       Did you get any direction on this? I’m in the same boat.

  • Skreemer311

    I have the .588. How do I do this without root? I did a factory reset and half my apps I backed up wont install. I get the triangle in the notification bar that the download was unsuccessful, pleas try again….please help

  • 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

  • Mblivin

    I updated to the non rooted 4.5.588 a couple weeks ago. How do I update to the new 4.5.595 without using bootstrap and clockwork recovery? My phone is not rooted in any way. Thank you

    • http://twitter.com/devinricker Devin Ricker

  • Mblivin
