DROIDX Gingerbread Update Soak Test Available (Updated)

Our inbox blew up about an hour ago with readers who were able to “pull” the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update for the DROIDX.  It’s tough to tell if all of these folks were “soak test” members or not, but we’ve known in the past that if the update goes live on Moto’s servers, that almost any can pull it.  So if you are running stock 2.2 and want to upgrade, now would be the time to check Settings>About>System Updates.

Oh, we should point out that our buddy @p3droid mentioned that you are able to SBF back to 2.3.340 afterwards in case this thing never gets rooted.

Update:  P3 is already preparing a .596 update for rooted users running the leaked .595.  Stay tuned, folks!

Cheers L, B, J, J, and S!

    P3, you are on top of your game and the reason why I don’t wait for OTA’s 🙂

  • Here is a picture for proof. I hope all of you get GB as soon as possible. I think you all will be extremely happy with the update. 

    • Hey did it fix the turning off and on problem and the laging???

      • Yes, my phone is running fast and smooth. It has not shut down and lagging seems to be a thing of the past. 

        *Side Note* About an hour before I was able to pull the update, my phone shut down on me randomly and it was running very (very) slow. The main icons (Dialer, App Arrow and Contacts) were on the top right hand side instead of the in the middle where they normally are. I don’t know if this had anything to do we me being able to pull the update. I would keep an eye out if your DX starts acting weird because mine was acting real weird prior to me being able to pull the update.

        • Drumbasher

          Mine acted similar last night, along with getting the message about not being able to contact the server to check for updates. Ended up doing a battery pull cuz it froze, but no GB….

          • Mine did exactly the same last night and I just thought it was my phone……should we maybe check into this? Im currently running .588

      • Duke Earl 27

        mine wont turn on

  • Chad

    • Roberto Taylor

      .595 will NOT take the update as it was originally said. You need to be on stock Froyo to pull the update now.
