    Gingerbread for the DROID X Arrives, Reminds us of the DROID BIONIC




    [​IMG]


    MyDroidWorld got a hold of something that should excite all of the DROID X readers in the world. Who’s ready for Gingerbread (Android 2.3) with the brand new version of Blur that we showed you all at CES? I know, I know, you all hate MotoBlur. The new version that was featured on the DROID BIONIC, was actually not bad. It no longer looks like it was made for toddlers, has some really nice new shortcuts within apps/menus, and will likely be a strong competitor with HTC’s Sense for best skin.

    I'm on Liberty also, and I love it! If we officially update to Gingerbread will we not be able to run Liberty any longer? That's pretty much a dealbreaker for me if that's the case...

    But say I updated to Gingerbread then decided to revert back to one of my backups, would that screw things up also?

    The developers should be pretty quick to update their roms to gb. What you could do is stay on liberty froyo and ignore the update till keejar and jrummy release the gb liberty and then update and immediately flash it.

    Roms that can be flashed over your existing stock android OS. You need to be rooted to do so.

    I rooted my droid a few days ago, but still in the learning curve.
    Does that mean it's like a theme for rooted phones, or more along the lines of applications?

    It kind of replaces the stock os your are using with a faster one without all that added crap that slows your phone. Your phone tends to run a lot faster and better battery life. I was using fission but just switched to liberty. Before you do anything, you MUST make a backup of your stock rooted phone. After backing up, you can experiment all you want and not be worried about messing up your phone...you can always resote back to stock and try again.

    Gingerbread is the code name for Android 2.3 version of software. All Android versions have code names (the current one if you are stock OTA is Frozen Yogurt or Froyo for short).

    Maybe the OP stated it, but for a newb, this isn't just another ROM right? This is the actual OTA official release of GB to the DroidX. (well, rumored, or supposed to be, I get the "shaky information, don't bank on it" part)
