The DROID X 4.5.621 update is available now to Motorola Feedback Network members who signed up to participate in soak tests.

The app makes a “protected backup” of your phone’s root that can be restored after updating your phone. So the next time your phone prompts you to update, be sure to load up RootKeeper, create that root backup, then apply the update, and then restore root. (more…)
