Droid X Gingerbread Update Going Out Tonight To Volunteers


With Verizon publishing details on the upcoming Motorola Droid X Gingerbread update, we knew it was nearly ready to head out. Earlier this week, Motorola reached out to Droid X users for their help with a special Droid X project; of course, we assumed that would be some late-stage Gingerbread update testing. Sure enough, those involved with project have been contacted by the company, informed they can hope to start getting their updates tonight.

The testers were contacted and informed:

● The update will be pushed late tonight. If you go to bed, it should be waiting for you in the morning. West Coast members and night owls may be up to see it.

● It’s a good idea to keep your phone charged if possible and plugged in overnight. You don’t have to keep it on, but you can.

● If you are rooted, you must flash back to the standard Droid X software to receive the update. (Even then we can’t guarantee the update will work.)

Assuming everything goes smoothly, Verizon should continue distributing the update to the majority of Droid X users, probably starting early next week.
