Motorola gets Cease and Desist order to halt leak of DROID X Froyo upgrade
With help from the courts, Motorola is trying to prevent unofficial Android 2.2 software from being installed on the DROID X. Armed with a Cease and Desist order against MyDroidWorld and other sites that have been making a non-final version of the software available, the Schaumburg based manufacturer could be aiming to prevent a repeat of what happened to some EVO 4G users. As we reported, some owners of the nation's first 4G enabled phone downloaded a version of Froyo discovered on HTC's servers. Because the version of Android 2.2 that they installed turned out to not be the final build, the manufacturer had to work on sending out a partial upgrade to fix the software downloaded by those "early adopters". Whatever the reason, Motorola has taken the punch bowl away from the party and DROID X owners will have to wait for the official OTA Froyo upgrade expected later this summer.

Funny that most of these updates always get leaked so early but then the manufacture has to recall them eventually... like the EVO, HD2, now Droid X too... anyhow.. I have been using Froyo for a while on my HD2... hahaha.. fastest Android in the market :)

They are upset because developers outside of their company are making better versions of the updates, than the crap that they are pushing out.
