    as far as i know from what i have read it IS the OTA update, it got leaked somehow, the version number listed on the zip will be identical to the version you are running on 2.2.2 but that is because motorola names their updates based on what version it is an update for, not based on what you are upgrading to. and remember you can SBF back to 2.2.2, i would *assume* that if you SBF back after they release the update to everyone you can accept it OTA. regardless, P3droid is going to release a pre-rooted version of the update that you can flash onto 2.2.2 using bootstrap recovery. It will load the update onto your phone with root already enabled. There is a thread on mydroidworld with instructions, everything is set but the links are not yet active, so you cant yet download it.

    I did it!

    I did it and it went well; very pleased. I have side loaded updates before (to Nook Color) but not to a phone. In fact I've only had the X2 for about 3 wks and its the first smartphone I have ever owned. I was very pleased from the beginning and continue to be so. So far I have used it mainly for a phone or texting so can't speak to the other issues, although I had noticed some lag in video before. Still I told myself the phone having video capibilities is a plus and not the mainstay. So I read and read and read some more; and with some trepidation followed instructions and it worked. No more frustated waiting and checking 10 times a day for OTA update. :) Thanks to everyone here for your great imput, opinions and experienced instructions.

    Yeah, screw it. It's 8:15 and I still didn't get anything, I'm going through with the manual way now.

    I noticed I can't do a long press on the period key to bring up the other options... it won't let me get to the second row.

    I am in the same boat. Ordered the phone same day they went up for order back in May. My brother hasn't even had his a month and he is already rocking the Gingerbread. Oh well...anything worth having is worth waiting and/or working for.

    I have had mine for exactly a month and no gingerbread. When I asked the guys at vzw corporate store they said that it should have been on there when I bought the phone. Clueless they had no real answer for me on timing of the push OTA

    hmmm, so no one has gotten the ota yet? with all the talk around you would think it would have been posted for ota already. even with the talk of pushing in phases, no one has gotten the official ota yet. curious....

    No one? Plenty of people have gotten it, we each just have to wait our turn for it to show up on our phones.
