    My phone still won’t turn on unless I do a battery pull first. *sigh*

    Has anyone gone from rooted version 4.5.596 to this yet? if so what was the outcome?

    • Buckgrad

      I was told you could not receive it if you had rooted 596. I did the sbf back to froyo, then pulled the stock 596 before the update was available. Then was able to pull the new update.

        Hmm ok I see it is available for mine but I didn’t know if I should even try to install :/

  • My wife and i got really relieved Louis could finish off his analysis through the ideas he obtained using your web site. It’s not at all simplistic just to always be giving for free facts which many others could have been making money from. We really already know we now have the website owner to appreciate because of that. All the illustrations you have made, the simple site menu, the friendships you will make it easier to create – it’s got mostly fabulous, and it is helping our son and our family reckon that this article is awesome, and that’s wonderfully fundamental. Thank you for all!

    Update still not available. Tried from 3-5 AM and again just now.

    Just woke up…looked at my DX…and there was the update message.

    Now 4.5602 MBB10

  • Tennessee Jedi

    I’m still running the leaked 2.3.3 GB…what is the best way to upgarde, since I can’t get OTA official updates?

    • Tennessee Jedi

      And please don’t suggest rooting, because it ain’t gonna happen on a company phone I don’t own.

      • Tennessee Jed

        After the initial 2.3.4 GB debacle, I decided to stay put on 2.3.3 until Moto got their act together, and I vaguely remember some instructions on how to get to 2.3.4 from 2.3.3. back then, but too much of the talk revolved around rooting and such. If I just need to do a clean reinstall, wipe the phone, whatever, then that’s what I’ll do, but if there is another avenue to try, I’d prefer that.

          You put a leaked version on the phone but are afraid to root it cause its a company phone… haha you don’t know much do you…. rooted or leaked version you can revert back to stcok at anytime its call sfb

          head on over to xda or df and start reading

          • Tennessee Jed

            Uhhh…thanks for the condescending answer. No, I am not a phone tech geek obviously. I just highly doubt that I’m the only person who downloaded the leaked 2.3.3 and then realized that we would be left high and dry with re: official updates.

          • Anonymous

            I still run the deoxed 495 no need for the update…

          • Anonymous

            If the phone is out of warranty (mine expired a month ago) then there’s no point in not rooting because it can’t void a non-existant warranty.  You need to SBF back to Android Version 2.2.1 (system version .340) before you can try to accept the regular 2.3.3 update that was issed OTA in May/June.  You don’t need to be rooted to SBF but you need to familiarize yourself with how to open the bootloader/recovery menu and download RSD lite on a windows computer.  Google “Droid X Froyo SBF instructions” and you should find some better instructions.

  • Geran Brown

    I am not getting the update???  I am still on the leaked version 4.5.588.

    • John


  • I dont get why the droid x is on 2.3.3 when all other phones are on 2.3.4.

    you would think they would update it to 2.3.4 on this update.

    • I’m stock rooted, will this send my phone in a boot loop? or will it just update it and unroot it?.

      • John

        9 times out of 10 just unroot it. it’ll either work or it won’t. rare chance a small bugfix like this will cause a boot loop

  • Learn much more here!ee

  • I am writing to let you understand of the superb experience my daughter encountered studying your webblog. She even learned many details, most notably how it is like to have a great giving nature to make certain people easily know just exactly several impossible subject matter. You really did more than visitors’ desires. Many thanks for delivering these insightful, trusted, educational and even unique thoughts on the topic to Ethel.

  • Jim Dandy

    If you not rooted, act like you know 😛

  • My Droid X is always telling me that I’m up to date and its pissing me off…

  • Goatweed

    I have the TBH app but I can only grab the froyo sbf, not the froyo sbf setup as an update.zip – so that means I need to rsdlite the sbf to get on froyo, then z4root, then install droid2 bootstrap and then install the 602 update, correct? Basically that’s what I did to get on the deodexed 596 update so it should be the same here, I believe?

  • Abc

    This is way too little way too late.  The GB update pushed to my phone the first part of June ruined my DX to the point it was not reliable as a phone.  Finally ended up getting rid of the DX and got a Droid Charge on June 30.  I now have a fevice tha works .

  • chefr

    can I install this update even though I have liberty installed? I know ill lose my root but my DROID has been really buggy

    • kuboo99

      I don’t know for sure, but it will probably screw up your phone.

    • short answer. No.

      this update is for the stock rom. Installing this update on a different rom is not a good idea.

    • chefr

      roger that

  • thunderbolt person

    The droidx gets 2 gingerbread updates but the thunderbolt doesn’t   get any thing

    • Anonymous

      Awe… Our Thunderbolts don’t get anything…… Awe….

      If you want Gingerbread…. install it.

      • slabix

        Aren’t you reading these stories? So far, getting updates has been nothing but pain and misery. The first GB update borked a perfectly wonderful phone. Be careful what you wish for. . .

        • Anonymous

          I’ve been running Gingerbread on my Thunderbolt for so long now I hardly remember Froyo. Regardless of stories, I’ve had no problems.

          If people are happy with what they have that’s great, but if they want Gingerbread there is no reason to gripe about it when you can simply install it. 

  • adryan maldonado

    Im going to assume it will but will this unroot me?

    • Splicer78

      Yes don’t take Moto updates if you wanna to keep root access

    What’s the bootloader version number after you take the ota?

    Looks like Google is already kicking ASS around the office.  That bionic is looking better but I’m still waiting for the Vigor.

      I paid $23.88 for an i Pad 2 32-GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumiix GF 1 Camera that we got for $ 38.41 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $ 635 which only cost me $ 61.74 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it al from,

    Even though that list is mostly a rehash from the previous update…it should tell you mostly what’s changed. It’s MUCH faster than before. Things actually WORK. Guess the Moto/Google merger is paying off LOL (kidding).

    • Niteperson

      The only thing I see that wasn’t fixed was the dailer shortcut still defaults to contacts, but that’s a small issue.

  • Anonymous

    download rsd lite and download the sbf the boot to the bootloader by holding camera button, volume down and power and plug it in. then open rsdlite and browse to the sbf file and click start.
    heres the link


  • @shells_guy

    I got the update. I lost my root when I downloaded GB the 1st time. tried to install the rooted version but bricked my phone. I have nothing to lose at this point. But someone needs to hurry with a root cuz I miss my tethering…

    • you don’t need to be rooted to tether. http://www.junefabrics.com/android/download.php let me know if you need help with this. 

    • Anonymous

      I’d bet money you didn’t brick your phone. Have you ever SBFed?

  • Anonymous

    nope it just wont take the update when it gets to recovery or it will just lose root

  • Anonymous

    got the update. its amazing. cell reception is better than froyo, reboots are gone, runs 100% stable. It runs faster than a dx2 i put it up to.

    • Anonymous

      Reboots were my number one issue while playing music.  

  • I have been having some 3G signal loss issue… called it in twice and still data signal disappears and only the reboot will fix it.  I hope that’s fixed! (even though they tell me that it’s not a common issue)

    • Sunonupe

      BULLSH*T.  This has been a problem sporadically and recently this has been horrible.  Last weekend I had to remove the battery 3 times.  Honestly, I thought it was just me having these problems.

      • Matthew Harmon

        There are ton of forum posts around this issue, I ended up getting a replacement phone.  It would be nice if Moto or Google would produce a list of bugs and fixes.

        • Anonymous

          3g reception is amazing now, better than any radio before on the dx. No more reboots no more freezes. take the update and you’ll see. It rolled out to everyone at midnight est not just the soak test

          • Anonymous

            God I hope so, didn’t have much luck running the custom ROMs so this is my last hope for the DX.

      That happened to mine everyday for two months. Tech finally sent me a new one and it worked flawlessly.

    • Justin

      I’ve had the same problem with my phone also, every morning I’m not able to make any calls unless I reboot the phone, hopefully this update fixes it

      • I was having the same issues loss of signal completely no text would send no phone calls could be made until I rebooted.  I have the update now so hopefully that will fix it.  I was ready to throw the phone away and get a HTC thunderbolt for the 4GLTE

    • Matt

      Had the same problem… only thing that fixed it was a complete factory reset and SD card wipe. Worked like a charm. Make sure you backup your data first.

      • Sheckyesq

        ive rebooted wiped and stll have power cycling..sux

  • Anonymous

    I am sure you will lose root.  I would [email protected]:twitter and if you have the Team Black Hat App you will probably find a pre-rooted version there pretty soon.  Otherwise it will likely end up on the forums in the next few days.

    • Griff

      It is on TBH but you have to sbf back to .340 to get it to work. I have no idea how to sbf.

      • Splicer78

        In the TBH app is the All In One, AIO for flashing back to .340 w/o using RSD, simply run it in CM recovery. Just make sure you DL the AIO for the update as well so you can do everything at once before you reboot

        • Griff

          So I can sbf from the Droid2 bootstrap loader? Load .340 and then stay in bootstrap and load .602? Is that correct? Do I still need Droid2 bootstrap or do I need the DX bootstrap? Thanks for your help Splicer

          • Johnzenobia

            where is the link?

      • Anonymous

        Just download rsd lite and that sbf file. Run rsd lite and choose that sbf file to use. Btw you have to get into your boot loader first by holding (if I remember correctly) camera button,volume down, then power (while powered off and in that order). You will see a flash on your phone, you then let go of the buttons and a weird screen should appear that makes it obvious you have done everything correctly. Only after that you should plug the phone up to your computer via a USB cable then run rsd as I said earlier. It’s actually very easy and will fix your phone from just about everything. P.s. make ABSOLUTELY sure you have at least 50% battery in your phone while doing this, if you don’t and your phone dies…well..just try bot to let that hhappen.

        Good luck, hope I helped!

        Anything else comes up, I hear that Google is pretty smart at this stuff (the site would be google.com) not being sarcastic just trying to stress a point.

    • his is already rooted.

      • Kixofmyg0t

        So is the TBH AIO pre-rooted?

        I’m kinda stuck ATM cuz I jumped the gun and hit update before remembering that I have a saved txt messege from Verizon(confirmed from my local Bed Red) that I…..for whatever reason….was selected for an early upgrade. I’m saving it for the Bionic. Now I’m stuck hitting “Install Later” every time it pops up…..and September 8th is ALOT of “Instal Later”s from now…..

        • Anonymous

          i guess if it downloads the file to your downloads folder you could delete it.  if it’s in a different folder you might have to dig for it but if you delete it i can’t see why it would keep prompting you to install

  • Typie6868

    Has anybody received it yet?

    Got it on my deactive droid x, its really good. fixes every bug. the camera bug, the sound bug, all of the reboots. go to settings and click about then system updates. do not install if you have root or deodex

    • slabix

      Seconded. Too little too Verizon/Moto. Even in nightlies, needing to patch the camera CM7 is so good, why would I go back?

    • Anonymous

      Is there a good website with instructions on installing CM?  I tried to look around there website but didn’t see the Droid X under supported devices and I didn’t see instructions in the forum.  I’d also like to know what’s still broken ahead of time.  I read that it breaks clockwork recovery – does that mean I’d have to SBF to get off CM if I wanted to go back to .596 rooted?  A lot of work just to try it out but rooted stock is starting to drag for me.

      It may, or it might send your phone into a boot loop. You should de-root first.
