    The official Gingerbread (v4.5.596) update for the DROIDX, but a version has already been released for rooted users thanks to @P3droid. There are essentially two different methods to get you upgraded since there are a variety of leaks running on people’s phones. You’ll want to read all of the instructions carefully and decide which one is you before proceeding.

    Method 1 (if you are running a GB leak 588/591/595):
    There is a specific file below for your build that will upgrade you to .596.
    *NOTE from P3 - IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE MOST CURRENT RADIO .12P THEN YOU WILL NEED TO SBF BACK TO .340 AND THEN USE METHOD 2.

    Method 2 (to upgrade from Froyo)
    SBF back to 2.3.340, root the phone, and then apply the PART1 and PART2 files below.
    Files:
    [For Gingerbread Users] – ODEXED | DEODEXED
    [For Froyo Users] – PART1 | PART2

    Instructions (running Gingerbread 588/591/595):
    1. Download the GB file of choice from above and drop on SD card.
    2. Bootstrap and reboot into recovery.
    3. Install the .zip file just as you would a ROM or other file.
    *install .zip from sd card > choose .zip > install.
    4. Enjoy!

    Instructions (running Froyo):
    *Phone must be in stock 2.3.340 state with root access.
    1. Your phone is running the 2.3.340 official Froyo Firmware.
    2. Your phone has been rooted.
    3. Your phone is using the Droid2 Bootstrap program (Do Not Use DroidX Bootstrap).
    4. Download both PART1 and PART2 files from above – drop them on SD card.
    5. Bootstrap into recovery.
    6. Install PART1, followed by PART2 without rebooting.

    *You should not leave recovery until both files have been successfully flashed.
    7. Once both have finished, reboot your phone.
    8. Enjoy!

    Any word if we need to do a Date/Cache wipe and Factory reset to go from Rooted 595 to Deo 596?

    I sbf'd back to 340 just to be safe.
    I used titanium backup to backup and restore my apps only so it wasn't a big deal.

    Everything went smoothly. Went from stock .340 rooted to .596 using method 2. No wipe, everything works perfectly. Still rooted too!

    Is it absolutely imperative that I SBF back to stock Froyo? I have a nandroid backup of a clean 2.3.340 Froyo install. Couldn't I simply use DX bootstrapper to load that back on, then get rid of DX and download D2 bootstrapper?

    you should note that if flashing over 595 you may get a hang at the eye for quite a while. A battery pull did the trick for me.
