    If you were one of the folks that held off on doing the manual install of Gingerbread on your Droid X, because you wanted to wait for the OTA, then your wait is over. Word is that people are getting their Gingerbread update OTA now. Here's a great pic from Engadget showing the Gingerbread man fighting his way to make it onto your Droid X. :)

    I sbf'd back to Froyo this morning and went in and checked for update and it found it immediately, I am connected to wifi at my house so the download only took about 5 minutes and the actual install time was also about 5 minutes.
    Its running fast and smooth! Soooo much better than Froyo!
    Hopefully we'll get it rooted very soon!

    To change the icons at the bottom of the screen, push and hold the icon for 1-2 seconds. After you let go a list of replacement programs will appear.

    Seriously though this is awesome, although I won't be getting it until BBC and Gates have their Darkslide GB released. The only update I think I'd take over DS would have to include a real lightsaber app and an app that would allow me to open wormholes.

    Seems a little faster. Mainly just the way things look and how keys react, etc.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but why is everybody getting a chubby for this update?

    Not exactly like a new device..but very nice Update..things just seem to render quicker, and apps load much faster..like the graphics, and sleep feature.

    For the Droid X, a much better version of Blur.

    Mine failed after download and reboot. I showed a triangle with exclamation point after going through about 1/4 of the way. No reason why?
