    Motorola has posted a warning on their support forums today warning users not to proceed with the leaked froyo update that has been floating around for the past few weeks.

    WARNING: Do NOT load the leaked 2.2 upgrade that has been floating around on the Internets. There is currently no upgrade path from that load to the official 2.2 load that will be released by early September. Unless you have some plan to flash your phone back to the current official load, you could be stuck on the leaked version.


    If you have updated, don't worry the complete step by step guide was created by our friends at RootzWiki for just that situation. To return your Droid X back to a stocker, just follow the link here: RootzWiki - Droid X. If you have questions, hit us up in the Droid Hack section and we'll be sure to help out: Droid X Hacks

    Did you happen to noticed the mention of early September for the official 2.2 update? Hmmmm.. How does September 6th sound for the new roll out?!

    Now, now. Remember that Nixon said that if the president does it, then it can't be wrong. George Bush said "internets", so it can't be wrong. :)

    Crap, I don't have linux or windows. I guess I'm stuck on leaked 2.2 until someone finds a work around through the phone or for mac users.

    For once I have to admit I'm glad I flashed back to 2.1. I know how good froyo is on my rooted Evo running Fresh that 2.2 leak was buggy I must admit I was tempted at the birdman release but Im going to wait it out stay rooted go with ota 2.2 then see what happens on the custom front

    I haven't read any of the posts because I am strapped for time. However, I could NOT get this process to work under Windows 7 64bit. I had to dust off my laptop that has WinXP 32bit. That being said, it appears to be working just fine on my laptop. Hope this helps anyone having the same issue.

    Bootcamp? That's always an option. Especially if you already have a valid Windows disc.

    There is some misinformation running around about this and people jumping to conclusion that this is Motorola locking down the system. This is wrong. Read what Motorola posts and you will see that they are actually letting you know ahead of time about the issue and telling you that flashing back to a prior release will allow you to upgrade.

    Here is Linux on your PC without changing your hard drive contents:

    Knoppix Linux Boot CD, Download Disk and Documents, Discuss, Get Help

    Now you can use the sbf_flash no matter your OS.

    I'll keep my 2.2 until this weekend. I'd bet half a goat (if only i could find my knife...) the official 2.2 is coming out around Sept. 6. You should still be able to flash back to 2.1 after that and manually check for update from settings.

    If you go back to 2.1, you lose everything, right? Is there any chance there will be a way to upgrade to the official 2.2 without having to to a factory reset?

    This is really pretty sad considering that, since loading 2.2, I've gotten fewer FCs, almost 2 day battery life, and effectively, pure DroidX happiness.

    Personally, I'm not flashing back to stock until I *have* to...or are they saying they're going to track who loaded 2.2 and then deny the upgrade even if it's been flashed back to stock?

    /\ /\ /\ same here... I have no issues, and unless they include something in the official update that I desperately need, I won't go back to 2.1 to then update again to 2.2 since I have 0 issues with it.

    If I understand this correctly, I would lose everything by going back to 2.1, correct?

    Also, can't we update manually from 2.2 leak to 2.2 official if someone uploads the official file?

    That would depend. I don't think you can use update.zip to reload a same version OS, so I'm guess Motorola was saying that your phone won't see official 2.2 as a valid "update" to leaked 2.2.

    This implies that that you won't be able to update from leak 2.2 to official 2.2 without a full flash... meaning you'd lose everything, unfortunately. :icon_eek:
