    Android version on Droid 3?

    Good Evening,
    I got my Droid 3 as a replacement for my X2.
    It came with 2.3.4 and I was curious if this is the most current OS for it? (the X2 was on 2.3.5 when it died)

    Should I assume that if I'm not up to date I'll need to flash it?

    Thanks.

    2.3.4/5.5.959 2.3.4/5.6.890, or 2.3.4/5.7.906
    if it's 890 should be able to take over the update
    more info in my list

    guess real question is are you going to stay stock or flash roms?
    many of the roms can be flashed on 890
    once on 906 you can't go back

    So, I'm guessing the / 5.X.X refers to System Version.
    I'm on 5.7.906.eXT862.Verison.en.US
    I guess that means no custom ROMs
    Thanks for the help.

    No you can still flash custom ROMs, just if you are on .890 you can flash back to .959. That's mainly for brick situations, as they changed the bootloader. I'm on .906 and am flashing custom ROMs when I find one I like.

    I'm not saying it was aliens...but it was aliens.

    1 download .906 1-click-sbf.exe + tools [10-8-2012] (save in case of emergency)
    2 download MOTOFAIL root by Dan Rosenberg
    3 root with Motofail
    4 download and install Safestrap v3 for Droid 3
    5 install some roms, with safestrap you have 4 slots + stock, and can switch between reboots
    look @ cm10, cm9, steel droid 4.5, Steel Droid 5.6.....
    some links in my list

    dit: and some safestrap install videos in my list, watch them

    So, I'm guessing the / 5.X.X refers to System Version
    you had a droid x2, and not sure about system versions?

    OK. Thanks, I'll check them out.
    And sadly, yes, I didn't pay too much attention to the system version on the X2. It updated once that I noticed while I had it. Plus, I didn't quite follow the way you wrote it. I'm slow that way
    Thanks again.
