    And it's not just a rumor. Verizon has updated their update section for the Droid X to implement the Gingerbread update!

    Make sure you are aware that at this time the anticipated release plugged the issue where by rooting of Gingerbread leaks was possible. As for me I am staying with my 573 leak since I have no issues with my phone. It's fast, stable and tethering still works for me if I ever wish to use it. This also means that the Droid X2 when loaded with the new Gingerbread OTA will also not be able to be rooted utilizing the previous methods.

    Hey man im running 595 build and was looking for a good tethering app that works. I tried barnacle and widow tether and it sets up then when I try to connect my computer shows an exclamation point over the signal strength

    Nice that they've listed the enhancements. But this one...

    + App and Power Management Details:
    Under Manage Applications, a new “Running” tab displays a list of active
    applications and the storage and memory being used by each.

    ... is already in Froyo.

    I just checked to see if the update is available for me yet. Still not. Anyone know how to possibly force it somehow?

    I do not want to root, I know all the benefits, but it is just not for me.

    It's false. it was planted there by the people who hacked the Sony Playstation network. It will be removed shortly. The new release date is 9/12/2011.

    The update will not be available to all X users on Friday. The first group to get the update will be the Motorola soak group. There will be additional users added every day. The update will be available to everyone after June 1st.

    I'm sure the manual update file will show up on the forums early Friday for anyone that wants to use it.

    I can just tell you that the message I have says that only the "permitted MEID's" will be able to pull the update on Friday.

    Time will tell.

    Who, where, when about the message doesn't matter. I'm not going to debate the issue with anyone, just saying that most X users should not expect to get the update on Friday. Some users will get it on Friday if their MEID is permitted. More will get it every day depending on the results of the soak.

    Everyone can get it after June 1st.

    Right. My message says July 1. No one should expect it Friday.
