    If 2.2 came today.... HOW many would accept it??? How much of a change if there are any, would you be will to update too???

    For most it looks like 2.2 has been a great upgrade rooted and non-rooted.
    Maybe I'm in the minority but I'm quite pleased with all the changes.

    You're not in the minority. It's just that when people have nothing to complain about they don't post. You only hear from people with issues, and to be quite honest most of the issues they have are simply from not understanding how a Droid works.

    I'm very happy with Froyo now that I did a full reset, cleared the cache, and fixed charging/screen lighting issues I had at first. Everything is smooth and fast...ran a 1408 quadrant whereas it was getting mid 1200's on 2.1! So Im really in no rush for the official update to come out.

    I would just wait for a repack so I could stay rooted and keep ClockWork.

    Chances are that the official OTA update will be the EXACT same thing that we have all been putting on our phones over the past two days.

    Remember, what we are installing comes straight from Motorola . It has to because of the locked bootloader.

    The moral of all that is that for everyone who already updated to 2.2, nothing would happen because the system would already show that it is up-to-date.

    I miss 2.2 from my Droid, but rooting the X is not needed IMHO....I'll wait for the OTA.

    This was only a release candidate. Some things are a bit quirky and I don't think all of the quirks are because it was leaked. They could (hopefully) fix some issues before the official release.

    U r really missing out! Theming alone is reason enough to root:) I guess if u like the eyesore white status bar and white/gray all over the apps, it wouldn't really matter to ya.

    Droid928, a mod here and at droidforums made a KILLER theme! He skinned a bunch of applications and everything.

    Some ppl just aren't comfortable doing the rooting process. If u r one of these ppl, u may be best off not rooting or doing the 2.2 update.

    aye you can update without root. and i agree that theme's make root worth it for that alone!

    couldnt it be possible though if you update that the OTA from Verizon might not take properly?

    we had to have stock perfect phone to get this update to be accepted by the bootloader, might mess up non root ppl or non sbf ppl rather.

    just a thought

    I updated to 2.2 un-rooted thinking that when the OTA comes IF I decide to accept the update it may go easier.
    I was rooted with 2.1 but I really didn't use the root features to its advantage, so I un-rooted.
    I came from a Samsung omnia i920 which I thought was great,BUT I'm just awestruck with the DroidX using Launcher Pro plus.
    2.2 just makes yhis phone more betterer LOL
    When the OTA comes I most likely will sit on for a long time (90 minutes).Always gotta try the new stuff. I still suffer from being a "flash-alcoholic"

    Im just not comfortable in my ability to properly update without on the air, so I'm waiting for that reason. I will def. update when it comes out officially, mainly b/c alot of websites I visit that have video, requires flash 10.1 so I'll need 2.2 to update to flash when it becomes available.

    Really? Themes are the most important reason to root?.
    Gads, either I'm old or some of you need to look away from the phone from time to time. ;)
    ... just to change things like the color of a notification bar? Really??

    Not one person in this whole thread stated that theming is the most important reason to root.

    I think you are the one who needs to look away from the phone/computer from time to time :icon_ banana:

    I feel that "Humpa" brought a great point the idea of "theming" (sp?) was brought up in post# 10 by "luv2increase".
    I had rooted 2.1 just see if I could do it.Rooting for me was a great learning process being new to Android.
    The point of this thread was to see if people are happy with 2.2 and if they would jump at the OTA to 2.2.
    So my question isto you what will you do when OTA arrives??
    Thank You

    Well, the official OTA may be what we all have on our phone right now. If it isn't, it would be insane to upgrade because we would lose ROOT. That is the most important thing for me. The leaked 2.2 runs absolutely flawless to me. There is no reason to upgrade.

    I am keeping this on my phone indefinitely. The next version of Android that I have will be gingerbread 3.0, and it will be with Motorola's dual-core Android phone for Verizon which will be out by the end of the year :)

    I doubt it. The leak is buggy, way to buggy to be an official release. You can blame moto for loading froyo up with so much bloat that the basic functionality of the phone is lacking. I did 3 separate installations of froyo on my X and each had issues even after all the numerous fixes/tweaks.

    I'm not a noob to android either, I took my time and did everything correctly, it just seems like this build of froyo is far from the final release.
