    You get it from the official update from Motorola. There is no 2.2 for the Droid X yet through mods. I wouldn't even suggest it or you might brick your phone. That part hasn't been hacked through yet.

    Hi, I am new to the Droid way of life...Have had a blackberry for over 10 years and recently move to the Droid X.

    I have ben trying for the past few days to update my Droix X 2.1 Update 1 to Froyo 2.2 but I cannot install the update.zip from the sd card. Everytime it just tells me that the Signature cannot be verified and then it aborts.

    Please help!!!

    Sorry Dude, No can do. I spent the weekend trying the same thing. It has to do with the fact that noone has hacked the bootldr yet.

    Look for my post and the help that I received from others about this from Sunday.

    I maybe wrong but I believe the bootloader is still locked down on the X and in order to flash a custom rom (froyo 2.2) you have to be able to access the bootloader. I have heard rumors (and they are only that .....RUMORS) that the OTA 2.2 will be pushed soon. I am going to forward your post to another Rescue Squad member to make sure I am correct and if not they can give you better assistance.

    I think someone got their messages crossed here. The Droid 1 just received Froyo, not the Droid X. If you somehow got that update.zip to install, you'd likely brick your phone.

    The last 2 posts are correct. The droidx can not flash roms. Elkay also has sound advice. sprecovery is not going to work on the droidx at this time. Neither will clockwork.

    So without custom bootloaders.... my rooted droid X is no different than a non-rooted X... other than the ability to use SetCPU and other minor tweak apps? That cost money?

    You have a Lamborghini with no engine right now. The hackers are trying to find X users their proverbial engine.

    ....this is a big WOMP WOMP for me. I was so excited to have a faster Droid X. The SetCPU helps a little bit, But I want to race the proverbial Lamborghini on the Autobahn! I'd bet froyo will come out officially before the bootloader is cracked.

    To the OP. I'm in the same boat. I went through the motions of rooting my X and then found out that you cant use any custom roms....

    No roms at all for the droidx as of yet.

    For those using RM with the DX does it apply themes or is it of no use at this point in time?

    thanks

    As I understand it because of a locked bootloader and other things, the ROM Manager is completely useless. I could be wrong about the themes, however. I haven't been able to apply any.

    Not having the droidx I wasn't sure. I suspect the files on the phone are layed out differently and I know some themes need to be ported to the various roms too.
