1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I'm pretty sure this has been posted before but I'm curious... is there any kind of time frame on the gingerbread OTA update for Verizon? Verizon is going to have a lot of PO'ed customers if they keep them waiting too long...

    This has been discussed ad nauseum. Going back 2-3 pages in this sub-forum, there are probably a dozen threads devoted to this topic.

    We don't know. Rumor is/was May 26th, the official release date for the DX2... BUT the DX2 is no longer being released with GB.
    So this begs the question: why would the "old" Droid X get the update before the new Droid X?
    Seem counter-productive when all they REALLY want to do is sell NEW phones, NOT update what's already been bought and paid for.

    So the answer is... as soon as today... or as far away as... never.

    Best bet: root and snag a copy for yourself.

    Oh yeah, then I wouldn't even worry about the OTA. Pretty much the only folks concerned about it are those who don't want to root for whatever reason.

    As far as the DX2, lack of GB is just one reason to pass... IMO it's not enough of an upgrade over what we already have. Wait for something better.

    I adore my DX. My next phone will have to literally BLOW MY SOCKS off my feet... Having an amazing phone has only made me pickier...

    So, I went back and looked at those old posts...

    Glad I did, 'cuz I had in mind to wait for the GB OTA before rooting!
    I'm getting a used stock DX this w/e.

    IF and when the OTA arrives how would it affect my ability to root my stock DX?
    Does the OTA for GB normally install automatically to a stock phone?
    If so, can I do anything short of rooting to stop the OTA upgrade? I will root, but I'm a noob so I don't want to rush it.
    Is there a simple root procedure (1 click or similar) that will work from a post OTA stock GB DX?

    I clearly stated that there may have already been a post similar to mine. I apologize if you are tired of reading about the OTA update. You know what I do when I stumble upon multiple posts? I just go right down to the next post. Why even bother throwing on your remarks? I clearly made a mistake and posted something that has already been discussed. Trust me, I am not the first person to do it. I can assure you that you will find multiple posts in here everyday.

    Don't sweat it. At least 80% of all posts are re-treads.
