    I rooted my droid x and have a custom rom. Will the update for gb still appear, and if it does would I have to remove custom rom before updating? How does that work?

    Has anyone even received the update anyway?

    I used Z4 also to root my phone originally also. I think the servers are overloaded so it keeps telling me that it is unavailable currently.

    you can't be on a custom rom and get the ota. You must be on stock froyo with no bloat removed. Root is ok, just don't remove any bloat from stock .340. Also remove dx bootstrap if present, or else ota will fial.

    Someone has yet to answer this question. I was able to uninstall those applications just using the settings even before I was rooted.

    I'm going to wait till June first to see if I can manually trigger it to download. If I still can't get it, then i guess I'll do a factory reset.
