    I'm not disclosed to release information detailing the update once I receive it, but it is coming very soon. I just received an email from a Motorola moderator offering the option of participating in the "pre-soak" test of the update. This is available to a select number of users prior to the official OTA that everyone else will receive, though, it will be the final build -- given there isn't a fault.

    Any development that is going on, I highly recommend waiting to see what this update will bring us and build off of it.

    Here's hopes that we receive the same structure as the DROID 3, who has exceptionally well implemented blur.

    Also, if I do recall, in a previous post I predicted that all DROID X2 users would receive the update by the end of August. It appears that this is looking true.

    May we all embrace the power of the DROID X2.

    And by the way, this would also be a good time to announce that I am planning on releasing a flashable update tonight that will debloatify, apply a few tweaks, and also include a few framework modifications. If time allows, I'll also deodex the system.

    ROM has been released!

    Betting that you can't answer but what will the GB update do to root? Can the update be declined? Losing root would be a major blow to my system and I'd just soon keep it as is for now.

    GB update will most definitely will be unrootable at first. Unless we receive the same blur infrastructure as the DROID 3 and root is discovered for it soon.

    Yes, it is easily possible to avoid the OTA all together. If you have a system modification, say, frozen/deleted/renamed bloat, then you wont receive the OTA. So if you wish to keep root until DROID X2 GB root is discovered, it should easily be accomplished.

    If we want to receive the OTA, what steps should be taken to ready the X2 for those that have rooted, debloatified and supercharged our phones?

    Ah, run away! It's God-OTA-update-zilla!

    The damnable thing is I still want the update.
    I hope it's not the hassle the last update was for me.
    I am bit optimistic , by pulling it back to double check and fix we should get a good down load.

    Just call me Pollyanna,,

    No... just being rooted does not block the update. You have to freeze the updater to block the OTA.

    We really won't know until the update hits, but I wouldn't count on anything.

    I'm more than willing to take the OTA, even if it does unroot me. Anyways if i had to go back i could just SBF back.

    This OTA has high expectations from me, I can't stand my Droid X2 right now.
