    No Path to Official DROIDX Update Coming from Motorola for Leaked 2.2 Users



    Motorola doesn’t appear to want to follow in the steps of HTC when it comes to updating to Froyo. If you remember, during the series of leaked Android 2.2 builds for the EVO, HTC was doing their best to create patches and fixes to early adoptees that were having trouble updating to their official release. Moto on the other hand, appears to be taking the other path which could explain their prompt spraying of C&D letters to anyone hosting the leaked 2.2 for the Droid X from 10 days ago.
    The Motorola Support Forums mentioned the following today…
    WARNING: Do NOT load the leaked 2.2 upgrade that has been floating around on the Internets. There is currently no upgrade path from that load to the official 2.2 load that will be released by early September. Unless you have some plan to flash your phone back to the current official load, you could be stuck on the leaked version.
    Let me just say that we warned you twice about this, so if you are getting all red and out of breath with droplets of sweat beginning to form on your forehead, stop now. There are risks involved in the flashing of any leaked Android update and we make that as clear as can be.

    But not to leave you hanging, we figured we should probably give you some instructions on how to get back to 2.1 so that you can receive the official 2.2 and save yourself from an aneurysm. Stay tuned for those…

    Oh yeah, and that note also mentions an “early September” release which could mean as early as this weekend?

    I'm sure someone will make the OTA available for download for all of us on the leaked 2.2. I don't think we would have to downgrade to 2.1 if we have that option.

    When they say the upgrade 'will be pushed to you' do they mean your phone will do the update pre-emptively, without user interaction (or without the user being able to control or cancel the interaction)?

    This is all a bunch of BS. Who cares; just release the stupid thing so we can move on. I mean we spend so much money on these devices to be sitting around waiting for one release over another waiting and waiting for something that probably should have been released from the beginning. I'm patient to a degree but this is starting to be ridiculous.

    Someone will figure out a way to get things working so I'm not worried. Either way I just want the official 2.2 and I'll take care of the rest even if it means going back to 2.1.

    OK enough rant! LOL

    I may be way off here, and not know my sh#t like I probably should, but under that new ruling, wouldn't Moto HAVE to release that update at least via a down-loadable package to conform? We now have the "official" right to hack our devices without worries of vendor ramifications, no? I swear that ruling just recently came down and/or went into effect. If anyone can provide accurate info on this issue, please post. Like I said, I may be way off - but dag nabbit, I know I saw something to that effect. Just to darn lazy to research it at the moment...
    I thought I was wrong once... But I was mistaken.

    Yukon, I think the ruling you're referring to is the one that says it's not illegal to jailbreak/root your phone. That doesn't mean that manufacturers must make it easy for you to do so or that they can't void the warranty if you do so. Why should Moto or VZW be expected to support or fix your device when you did something to it that they told you not to do? I support your right to root your phone, as long as you take ultimate responsibility for it.

    In before the self righetous say "I'm glad I waited" responses.
    Also, in before the clueless who either rooted or installed the leak will post a million threads asking how to revert back to 2.1 stock.

    There is some great comedy over @ the android forums on said topic
