    Hi All,

    My name is Ed and thanks for having me as part of your community. I got the strangest pop up pushed to my phone this morning (Droid X). It appeared to be from Verizon. It said to upgrade to Gingerbread 2.3 please simultaneously push and hold the "home" and "bookmark" keys. There is no bookmark key on the phone as far as I know so I went to the bookmark shortcut on the browser and pushed that simultaneously with home. I also pushed all the hard keys in combo with the Home key. Nada. Did Settings/About phone/System Updates and got the message the phone is up to date. Called Verizon who knew nothing about a push update of Gingerbread. Has anyone else had this experience and if so have you successfully been able to download and install Gingerbread 2.3 and if so could you please tell me how you did it?

    Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
    Ed S.

    :welcome: to the Droid Forums. I don't know what you got but that doesn't sound like an update to me. I mean I believe what you say, it's just that you shouldn't have to perform any multiple actions to receive an OTA update.

    Response from Ed S.

    Thank you for your prompt responses. I thought it was weird too because prior OTA upgrades did not behave this way. I have not rooted my phone and the message popped up repeatedly on the Home Screen. It has stopped. Next stop is Motorola then if they have no answer will see if somebody somehow got in a back door from an app I downloaded from the Market. Take care good people.
