    Yes and I even got the extended battery and that one is drained inside of 12 hours while the phone is doing pretty much nothing. Used to get at least 3-4 hours more before froyo with stock battery. Even rooted so I could clear battery cache and that has had no effect. What gives?

    There are many bugs within the ota released to the droid x. With Verizon and Motorola there is really no predicting how long it will be before there is an ota to fix these problems but I can say for sure that this is a known issue and it is being addressed. If it is something that you feel you can't wait for then you can root your phone and install a custom 2.2 rom with more features and fewer bugs.

    Battery Drain post FroYo upgrade

    Glad I am not the only one with this problem but it really stinks! My battery lasts 5 hours max & runs hot when phone is in use.....:r_c:
