    I've had my x since december and it was literally flawless. Since gingerbread, its been rebooting 5-6 times a day even during a call. The pics I take now have mysterious green and orange splashes on them and the videos cannot be played back. It gives me a message that the video isn't compatible with my phone even though it was taken with the phone. PLEASE GIVE ME FROYO BACK. My app icons also magically disappear from my screens at will. Then I have to put them back. What the he'll. And moto thinks im going to buy the bionic or another phone from them.

    If you want Froyo back, just sbf.

    I would recommend backing up all your info and doing a data wipe though, before you give up on GB. That being said, I am running a custom rom with the .595 leak and its been great

    I'm running rooted .588 GB with no issues. Initially it rebooted every few minutes until I did a factory reset.

    This is the first time I've heard these issues. GB has been running rock solid on every leaked version for me. Sbf and reinstall.

    I miss the smiles that used to be on where the return key is. It made life easier.

    There is an sbf for gingerbread now for those having issues from the ota! With an ota there is always the possibility of something not coming thru as complete as it should an sbf would be more of a wired update

    Download sbf file to computer. I use rsd lite 4.9. Get the updated Motorola driver for the Droid x. Install rsd lite. Install drivers. don't install sbf file. Can only sbf from bootloader. Power off 1st then hold power, volume down and camera keys at same time. For anyone that has never sbf'd my instructions may be confusing search you tube Droid x sbf many great how to videos there
