    It is very likely that we may see the release of Gingerbread for the Droid X within about a week, if not sooner. One of the folks over at our friends at MyDroidWorld, found a support page on Motorola's website detailing the new update to the Droid X, version 4.5.596, and it includes Gingerbread. Great find!

    Here's what we think about that = dancedroid

    Verizon has notified the blog world that the update will be available on Friday (May 27).

    ...since its not released, how could the OTA be rooted. GB leaks have been rooted, but that doesn't mean anything about an official OTA.

    Just for the hell of it, has anyone tried to see if they could manually get the update through System Updates in Settings? Verizon posted some instructions on how to do this on verizonwireless.com/droidxsupport and figured what the heck. I can't since I am on Droid2, which hopefully won't be far behind. :)

    The manual update is really just a go to your settings and check for updates! Which us is technically still over the air.

    So is it safe to assume if you are rooted once you update you won't be?

    I just did a manual check for updates and there it was! It took an hour to download OTA. I am installing now!

    So it took six minutes to install. There is now a red circle with a white M for the boot up, then the Droid Eye(same as before the update) the darn eye lasted like 4 minutes! It looks like alot has changed! I will have to play around for a while to see what all is new.

    WOW. It only took about 5 mins to download (I did mine at about 12:50 a.m. today). It took about 10 mins to install and do it's thing and *poof* - there I was on Gingerbread!

    I'm really liking the new interface. I like the new rotation animation. Seems a little smoother. I also like the dark navy and turquoise color combination. I also liked that I didn't have to set everything back up on my phone. I only lost my email app button, but that was easily fixed.

    Yeah. I like bright and shiny objects. :icon_eek: And right now, Gingerbread is a bright and shiny object. dancedroid

    Overall, a very painless update (so far). Just like it was to FroYo.

    I worried when I saw the red eye. I thought it would last forever. I got a little worried. Luckily, it didn't take long for the phone to come back up (well, for me it felt like eternity, but obviously it wasn't that long).

    New Things I've Noticed:
    Under Setting -> Wireless & Networks -> NEW: Tethering & Mobile Hotspot. Don't recall this little puppy before. But, since I don't tether or use my phone as a mobile hotspot, I'm not that concerned. Yet.

    Books - this a Google Books app that must come with this update, as I never downloaded this before. Also, this updated almost immediately after I opened Market. Note: This was checked for automatic update. Removed that instruction immediately!

    VApps - Verizon Apps - you have to sign into this. Don't recall seeing this before.

    That's what I've noticed other than the appearance of Gingerbread.
