[Updated:] It has been shown through recent reports that this info turned out to be a mistake on a developer's part, and that the info is not accurate. Unfortunately, sometimes in journalism, that happens. We bring you the news that we think you would like to know as quickly as we can. Sometimes the rumor-mill on the interwebs can be impossible to predict or confirm. Also, sometimes there is a time-delay while we write up our articles in which new info arises that we don't know about. We do our best to be as accurate as possible, but occasionally we miss some things. We apologize for the inconvenience.
A few weeks ago we reported a leaked Gingerbread update for the Droid X. Today, Verizon & Motorola are stealthily rolling out a newer version of that same update. However, don't rush to grab it if you are rooted. Apparently, they have added in "an extra surprise" to this version. It comes with a new bootloader that effectively eliminates your root access.
Here is a warning and quote from the source of this article,This seems rather... 'shifty'. What do you guys think? This is happening right now, and we will keep you apprised if anything changes.It has been suggested that this update is only rolling out to users with the latest official build from Verizon (build 2.3.340), but if you’re currently rooted then ClockworkMod Recovery should block the update from happening. This is a "silent" update, meaning that there is no notification that the update is available to download, but instead it will download automatically and then you will be prompted to restart your phone so the update can take place.
