Motorola DROID X to get its Gingerbread update on May 13th?

Motorola DROID X to get its Gingerbread update on May 13th?
The Motorola DROID X2 is expected to launch May 12th as we reported yesterday. As a result, Verizon reps have been told to push the original Motorola DROID X out the door in order to clear inventory for the sequel. One rumor that might help in this quest is the speculation that the latter device will be receiving an OTA upgrade to Android 2.3.3 on May 13th.

Motorola is said to be waiting for Big Red to sign off on the latest Gingerbread build for the carrier's former flagship model and the final version is said to be more recent than a previously leaked build numbered 4.5.591. It is hoped that Verizon will be signing off on the upgrade today with a release coming next Friday.

Verizon might have to cut the price of the Motorola DROID X before the sequel is launched. If you have been stalking the phone waiting for the best time to buy, you might get an opportunity sometime within the next week.

Huh. Well, it'll be interesting to see if there's something new in the next build they didn't include in mine. I really hope they didn't change their minds about some things and pull them. However, waiting until the X2 is released to push out the update makes sense.

I wonder if Moto is going to be giving any further updates to the Droid X after this one? Or, is this the goodbye kiss and then Moto is focused 100% on their new handsets?

The update is real. I have it. It's just been a matter of when they release it. And no, I've never rooted any phone.

If they follow this logic the 2phone won't get the update until the 3 is going to be released.

the 3 is likely to be released quite soon. Moto is not sending anymore shipments of either of the Droid 2 models.

it's gonna be pretty interesting to see how "GingerBlur" is taken by the critics in the DX2 and the D3 reviews.

Go to your settings and download it then.

where do you go in settings

23. justntym unregistered

go to "settings", then "about phone", then select "system updates" The phone will do the rest.

So does this mean that if my phone is rooted I will have to un root to install gingerbread. Then re root?
