DROIDX Update to 4.5.605 is on the Way, the Keyboard Bug is Finally Getting Fixed

The original DROIDX Gingerbread update brought with it a massive list of bugs that were eventually fixed – well, except one.  The keyboard remained a problem even after a couple of updates were pushed out by Moto and Verizon.  That bug will go away though, over the next couple of weeks when the latest 113MB fixer is made available.  Not sure why a keyboard fix takes 113MB (maybe to fix the current root method?), but that’s what we have here.

More details.

Update:  Some folks over at RootzWiki pulled this .605 file a couple of days ago.  There has been some discussion around the phone actually being more buggy after loading it.

Update 2:  Hearing now that the update will start to roll out on the 19th.

Cheers Legion!

    I have Motorola Droid X2 and it randomly restarts itself, OFTEN! Also my camera and video are blurry and choppy. Honestly it’s the worst I have had. And when I turn it to vibrate it won’t vibrate it’ll just have a little green light blink. And the keyboard (on screen) will never switch to horizontal on text or internet or app store. I use to have the Droid X but it did the same so they sent me a Droid X2 and still same problems!

    Reboot after proper shutdown has become common for my DroidX  4.5.605 (This is a WIDELY reported bug among the Droid community) Battery life has declined considerably, even with regular cache cleanings, app killings, and system upkeeps. Keyboard is still laggy and glitchy. Overall unsatisfied with Motorolla. PLEASE put a little more effort into your OS/updates!

    I have had my Driod X for about 6 months.  It is the first smart phone and after playing with it for about a week I really loved this phone.  Maybe I have been lucky, but I haven’t had any problems with the phone.  My only complaint comes after the Gingerbread update.  This phone is my lifeline–family info, business contacts, businesses I frequent, etc.  So I broke them down into folders to make it easy to find who/what I needed.  They totally hosed up the contact folders.  You can’t add new contacts to existing folders.  When you tap on a folder to change to a different one it takes you to the last folder you were in.  So you have to go back to the main list a try again.  The FM app changed — can’t save favorites anymore, doesn’t tune in a well as it did before.  I’m hopping the new update will fix these few annoying problems.

    My phone has not worked well since the update…it hangs and locks up. Sometimes I can’t even open my gallary. My battery life has diminished considerably. Please send an update to fix asap!!

    How do you get your phone to stop rebooting? Everytime I go to play music on my phone it shuts down. This started after that new updated. Its very annoying.

  • Gniddie

    this update has made my phone completely useless. Answering calls, taking photos, playing music no longer functional. Even typing this message has become challenging

    I have loved my droid x for the last 11 months.  Minor technical issues, but nothing worth complaining about.  The forced upgrade to 4.5.605 that occurred a few days ago has made me hate my droid x and now I can’t wait until my contract is up.  The keyboard function is buggy, it puts random words in the middle of a sentence now!! I have to really proofread everything that I send, and it is not easy to edit either.  The weird arrow gets in the way.  Also, it will frequently force close the browser, which had never happened before the “upgrade”.  I don’t mind minor bugs, it’s par for the course with technology. But these are pretty major bugs and they have made this once great phone an absolute pain.

    after upgrading.  when powered off, a new message will turn the unit back on.  i prefer to have it totally off at night.

  • Balthas

    Since the update all mine does is freeze. I have to remove the battery to even get it to reboot. Then once it’s back up 5 minutes later it’s back to fully frozen. This is getting old and honestly i’m about done with both android and Verizon since they are throttling their 3G service for those of us still on unlimited data.

    I simply love this phone (droidx) however, with the new upgrade- which i didnt need, thank you- the function keys stay lit when in the docking station. Whats up with that?

  • Mkeefer

    Has anyone had problems after the upgrade when typing in a new text…if you hit the space bar multiple times quiclly…it pastes text from your previous text message. Any help?

  • Olle
