    So far its pretty sweet. Its quicker, it has a blackish blue notification bar, transparent notification pulldown, a WAY better launcher and home page. Overall I like it. Its pretty snappy. Just sucks that it can't be rooted and you have to sbf back to 2.2 when you want the ota. But I think its definitely worth a try on your DX!! Any other questions about it let me know.

    Is it the first phone with a transparent pull down?

    I'm not really sure. Maybe stock with a transparent pulldown. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    first off this is only for the droid x/2 and it looks like you have a droid. but if you have a x/2 then yes you would have to be rooted and flash it in clockwork. and when you boot up it would no longer be rooted.

    The x/2 are getting the same firmware update?

    Why isnt this breaking news? I thought the gingerbread build was only available for the x, and that the droid 2 had support dropped entirely since motorola opted in favor of supporting the global and r2 d2

    Haha, really? When ever I boot my phone now, I start laughing because my Dx looks like it has a big red clown nose. Bozo X!
