    Tried searching for an answer but no luck... I got a DX off a friend a cpl weeks ago and the very first time I went to "about phone" and system updates, it found the 602 update... Well, I since found hardware issues with that phone & so I bought a better conditioned DX off another friend, activated no problem, but no matter what this one will not find any updates even though it's still running 2.2.1. Any way to force the update on a unrooted phone? Thanks for any help!

    My guess is that it was probably rooted before you got it, and he unrooted it when he sold it to you. He might have deleted a system app or something which is preventing the update.

    Rocken that SSX 2.1 !

    That's definitely a good theory, however trust me, this dude is completely clueless about tech stuff & I guarantee he doesn't even know what rooted is... He sold me this b/c it was too complicated, and then got an ifone... nuff said :D

    Agreed. And there is a thread in the dx forum that you can get the stock apks in. You just need to do some searching.

    Ok, so I got the most recent 605 update downloading right meow! After trying a dozens things, I simply connected to PC, checked for moto updates on PC (none found), then on the phone, while still connected, went to the update section and it found it the first try! Not sure if connecting had anything to do with it but that's when it happened to work...

    I had a different rooted DX before this running 602... I went ahead and got the 605 update OTA just fine, but not only did it unroot but I didn't notice a damn difference with the keyboard so, personally I would wait...
