    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.
