    Just wanted to say that I have zero issues with the GB update and have only positive things to say about it. Battery life is better no force closes etc...best thing that my X ever utilized (never rooted never will)

    Want to say the same, the only thing i'll had to deal with with the lag when trying to unlock the phone. Doesn't happen all the time, but it does, at least with my phone, no issues, and better battery life. :icon_ banana:

    Try turning your phone off and just lay it down and wait for 5 to 10 minutes or so. You might be surprised when you think it's off and it turns back on without your knowledge.

    I just did this today on a brand new Droid X at the Verizon store. Yes, it does it even on a brand new stock phone.

    Just curious, for those not having much/any trouble- are you mostly running stock apps (email/text/browser, etc) or using 3rd party stuff? How many apps have you DL'd? Heavily customized or pretty much stock layout?

    Would really appreciate hearing more details on what kind of systems are running smoothly on GB. Thanks!

    I've seen many updates, leaks, on all kinds of devices. I've never seen any update come in where there wasn't a ton of complaints.

    These threads are far and few between, but I believe that the majority of people share the OP's experience.

    You might be right. Most people whose phone is rocking don't feel the need to post about it I estimate. I just want mine to work like the update said it should. But no doubt the issues are plenty enough to be concerned if you can't operate your device the way you need it to. And I'm not doing a lot of things many here utilize their phones for. My wife's DX is working just fine while mine isn't.

    I updated to the ota gb update as soon as I could and my phone runs great. Its much faster than froyo, the new Blurr is much nicer, battery life is better, and its just nicer looking in general.
    The only issue I have is random reboots(maybe once or twice a day). But other than that its solid. And I also keep tons of apps on my phone.
    I will be very glad once its rooted tho. Like with gingerbreak.
    I know I can get root axcess by installing the TBH zips but for now I think ill just wait. Everythings running great.

    I'm all stock, all my apps come from the market....probably 20-25 of them. Never did any rooting, or any blocking, or anything like that............just stock. No reboots, no auto turn on, no problems at all.

    Loving Gingerbread!

    After 2 weeks on GB, I gotta tell you....Im loving it! I wasn't a fan of the color changes, menu config...etc at first, but I gotta be honest, GB is a much smoother and more elagant UI. I have a co-worker that hasn't upgraded yet and I was showing him some of the changes. Looking at his DX with Froyo compared to my DX with GB was striking. Side by side comparasion, Froyo looked...well....dated and basic.

    No WAY Id go back.

    Also, my battery usage has leveled off and is actually better on GB!! Just took GB a couple weeks to "learn" my battery habits I suppose! :)

    Anyways....just wanted to give kudos to GB.

    I'm also loving it. I havent had any issues. It appears to be much faster and it doesnt freeze hardly as much. The color blue took some getting use to but I'm ok with it. With GB this phone does everything I need it to do and more!!!!

    I also took the update and my phone has never ran faster and smoother. My batt life is better can get up to 14 to 20 hours. And I have no issues at all. And I don't miss being on roms anymore, I will even say my phone is as fast now as it was in roms. That surprised me. Gb made my phone feel new again.

    I had good experiences with GB for the most part. A few minor things but they've all been resolved. I'm on Liberty GB now and it blows the stock GB out of the water!
