    Will us Droid X users be getting the new Android firmware... like "Ice Cream Sandwich"?
    or another firmware name?
    Around when will it come out?
    I realize all of this is just speculative I just cant wait to see it fix everybodys compatibility/programming problems!
    (like mine shuts off and alot of other stuff..)
    Thanks:hail:

    Dude now that the Droid x² has came out I highly doubt that x users that don't root their phones will ever see ice cream, much less any other versions. The original X will prob be discontinued by the time ice cream sandwich drops.

    But I'd count on a ice cream rom for the X. I just got vanilla gingerbread on my fascinate and I think my phones been discontinued. Hell the stock users just got froyo. Roots the way to go.

    I'd just be happy if they would fix the current one and get rid of all the bugs. Each time we get a new version it gets worse. Even Microsoft Windows does a better job then that.

    I think this recent Gingerbread update will be the last major official OS update we DX users will see. The phone already hit EOL back in March so I'd be very surprised to see any further updates. Just my opinion.

    My DroidX has been a serious disaster since the Gingerbread update.

    You guys will prob. get updates to fix some bugs but a upgrade to newer firmware for the X is unlikely. And a little tip. Try a factory reset. Updateing the firmware on your phone with all your old apps installed can lead to bugs. Same thing happened when some galaxy s users got froyo. Factory reset cleared it right up.

    can you help a brother out by giving advice on how we should go about backing up all of our files/settings/configurations/etc cause when we do a factory reset we will loose everything (even root) right? thanks

    Do I have to do it through an SDK or something?
