    Google Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread for the Motorola Droid X has been leaked and rooted but unfortunately, according to rumors, it was rejected by Verizon so it's still not officially out there. A new set of hear-say just surfaced according to which an even newer than 4.5.591 build has been finalized by Motorola and sent to Verizon which should approve until tomorrow, May 6. If the rumors turn out to be true, the new ROM will enter its testing phase next Friday, May 13, and could be rolled-out as soon as two weeks from now. Whenever it hits, it can't come soon enough!

    Australian Motorola Atrix 4G owner Irwin Proud quickly discovered that it's bootloader was locked after his purchase of the device earlier this year. In response, he formed a "Groubal" page to attempt to get the attention of Motorola and convince it that there is a large subset of users who wish to develop for the Atrix and cannot due to the immutable security. The Groubal page has grown quickly, currently at over 8800 signatures since it's inception on March 31st. Motorola has since taken notice, and has issued a response: "...It is our intention to enable the unlockable/relockable ...

    The Droid X² may be the Motorola smartphone getting all the spotlight lately, with its first press shots showing up late last week, but there may be yet another Moto Droid lurking in the shadows, as Droid-life has received some pictures of an unidentified Motorola model, purported to be an in-house multi-core prototype. While this pictured model looks quite similar to the Droid X, you'll notice this smartphone features a silver faceplate and is significantly thicker than the Droid X, with a bulging battery cover in the rear. While there have been extended batteries available for the Droid ...

    Now that we've seen the first press shots of the Motorola DROID X^2 (X squared) we get a sense of the smartphone being close and also a feeling of the initial Motorola DROID X aging day after day. Amazon Wireless has the good old DROID X on sale for a limited time for $0.01. Compared to the $149.99, which is the price for the DROID X over at Verizon, $0.01 is a bargain, but it's not free. As usual, the price is valid with a two-year contract but for one cent you get a 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP processor, 512MB of RAM and ROM, FWVGA 480x854 resolution display of 4.3-inches as well as an ...

The Droid X is powered by a 1GHz processor and after its most recent update it is running Android 2.2 Froyo. After the update it is reportedly getting a score of 1918 which is a significant boost over it's Android 2.2 update and nearly double the score from running Android 2.1, which the phone launched with (scores shown in image above).

    Fresh off the last Motorola Droid X2 video we checked out, showing off the phone's boot screen with that lovely dual-core confirmation, we've come across a bunch of new pics and video of the Android smartphone, showing off some more of the hardware design, and checking out the device's performance with a Quadrant benchmark. In addition to the new media, there are some revised specs for the phone available. We've been expecting the Droid X2 to have a dual-core Tegra 2 running at 1GHz, but this new rumored figure has it at 1.2GHz. While that would be good news if true, the same source puts ...

    If you've been eyeing a smartphone that's lined-up to arrive with Verizon but have been a bit nervous about what your dream phone will end up costing, we may have some relief in store for you, as a leaked copy of the pricing structure for several upcoming Verizon models has arrived. While some of the prices are a relief, if only because they don't seem too over-inflated, a few stand out as models for which Verizon thinks you'll pay a premium. The Droid Charge is still listed at $300, the same as on the last price sheet that leaked out, making it one of the carrier's most expensive ...

    Verizon has pushed out the over-the-air Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Motorola Droid X and it didn't take long until it got rooted. If previously there were some questions about root involving different builds being pushed out, P3Droid from Team Black Hat has now confirmed on Twitter that the system has been rooted. While Superuser access was achieved by the team, there's currently no public solution available at the moment -- though we're pretty sure it's just a matter of days until everyone can grab one.

    Last month a pre-release of the official Gingerbread update for Motorola's Droid X leaked, giving coders the chance to comb through it and prepare a rootable exploit in advance of its proper release. Now Verizon is pushing the update out OTA, but is it safe to update if you'd like to still be able to root your phone? Users reported the update arriving this morning, arriving silently with no prompt to download, alerting you when to reset your phone to complete the upgrade. The earlier leaked update was build 4.5.573, and a pre-rooted installer was able to get it on your phone without ...

    If you're the owner of the Droid X or jumped ship on the Droid 2 before the special Star Wars R2D2 edition launched yesterday at select Verizon Wireless communications stores yesterday, then you'll be happy to know that the custom lock screen available on the R2D2 Droid 2 edition has been ported to the Droid X and Droid 2. The hack, which will require a rooted handset, is detailed on Droid-Life with instructions and the necessary files. Although the U.S. government has recently "legalized" rooting with an updated version of the DMCA rules, the hack detailed by Droid-Life does contain ...

    Just one day after the leak of Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread for Motorola's Droid 2 and Droid X, we get the nice surprise of a pre-rooted build. Similar to their recent Atrix 4G update, this update brings with it a patch to fix the security vulnerability used for rooting many android devices (rageagainstthecage, psneuter). Team Black Hat worked around this patch by setting up a pre-rooted updater that deploys from recovery mode, instead of the usual SBF + RSD Lite method. Flashing your device back to the stock ROM is required prior to updating. The modified update deploys rooted from the first ...

    Last week we had some back-and-forth rumors about an upcoming Gingerbread update for Verizon's Droid X. First we hear "it's a go for Sunday", then "rejected by Verizon". Without any evidence either way, we just had to wait things out. Cut to Sunday, and leaked versions of the official updates for both the Droid X and Droid 2 surfaced. Was this Droid X update the same one Verizon supposedly rejected? We may have an idea why, as analysis of the software shows references to AT&T as the carrier, not Verizon. If you try running the mobile hotspot with either the new Droid X or Droid 2 ROMs, ...

    Sorry if we got your hopes up, Droid X owners; the rumored Gingerbread update that was just waiting for Verizon to send it your way, the one that could start rolling out as soon as Sunday, has supposedly been rejected by the carrier. If this tweeted warning is correct, Motorola will have to take another stab at putting together a Droid X Gingerbread build that Verizon is satisfied with. There's no indication yet as to what exactly Verizon had a beef with; we doubt it was a performance issue, as the Droid X should be more than capable of running Android 2.3 without issue. According to the ...

    We saw what purported to be in-development shots of a build of Gingerbread for the Motorola Droid X back at the end of January. Since then, we haven't comes across any further indications of progress towards a release of the Android update. According to Droid Life, there's now a rumor that the phone could receive Gingerbread starting this coming Sunday, March 27. While we've been hearing rumors of official Gingerbread updates for plenty of phones, they've been slow to materialize. Droid Life cites developer tweets indicating that the Droid X code is indeed complete and ready to go, and ...

    Enterprising hacker William "nenolod" Pitcock has been hard at work on the Motorola signed bootloader issue and has now posted a method that can be used to obtain the private key for the "sholes" platform. Vulnerable devices include the Droid, Milestone, Droid X, Droid 2, and CHARM. Having the private key allows custom ROM images to be signed and accepted by the bootloader to flash to the device. It is currently unknown if the same vulnerability applies to recent and upcoming devices such as the Atrix or Bionic. Motorola was notified about the vulnerability privately three times prior to ...
