The Gingerbread (Android 2.3) for the DROIDX is finally ready.  After 3 or 4 leaks, word from our sources that the .596 build had been finalized, and a “soak test” announced by Moto, Verizon appears to be ready to make it official.  The support page for the DX has been updated with new GB information, including the entire change log which we’ve captured for you above.  You are getting everything we saw in the leaks like the new blue Blur, ActiveSync fixes, and that snowy looking new fixed dock.  The update will weigh in at 112MB.

I should point out that we’re still waiting for a date and for the soak test to finish, but when these documents go up on Big Red’s site, it’s usually a good sign that we’re within a week.  So try to hold off from “pulling” at your phone’s system update page for now until we know more.  We’ll hopefully have more in the morning.  Sweet dreams.

Update: Verizon has notified the blog world that the update will be available on Friday (May 27).  

*Note – When this does become available, we’ve heard plenty of word surrounding the root situation of this update which is not pretty.  What I mean by that, is if you are currently rooted and want to stay that way, the update might not be the best thing to accept.

More information.

Cheers Jim!
