    A new page is appearing on the DroidDoes.com website indicating that Verizon "has" released Android 2.2 "Froyo" for the Droid X. This could be the first steps of prepping the websites for the new update. Unfortunately clicking through to the support area on VZW.com shows no update..... Stay Tuned!

    That link from that post takes you to this information.

    Enjoy improved performance with these OS enhancements. Verizon Wireless is
    pleased to announce a new software update for your Droid X by Motorola. The Motorola
    (Version.1.13.604.MB810.Verizon.en.US/Baseband: BP_C01.09.04P) update includes
    numerous enhancements and improvements.


    That information is about 2.1. I have 2.1 and that version was preinstalled on my phone. It is NOT 2.2.

    Im looking forward to getting back to the OTA update.... the leaked 2.2 has been great but i don't like these weird fails im getting with certain feautures.

    (Market not loading everything, Camera not recording, picture Icons in the gallery are wrong for the picture itself, same with the videos, and I've been getting more random restarts)

    Deadline? What deadline?

    I saw nothing about a deadline. It'll be here when it gets here.

    Early September

    There was a leak of an intended release of android 2.2 for early December I haven't seen anything that's official as of yet. Since I've only had my Droid X for a little more than a week I don't intend to download and install the unofficial release floating around the Internet just yet.

    Dec? no...


    It will be out soon enough, they said end of summer so I assume anytime in the coming months it will be here. If it takes them until December to push on 2.2 I'm going to kick someone in the face.

    So this morning at around 4:15, I was woken up by our cat...she usually scratches and meows at the sheets when she wants to be fed, but that normally isn't until between 5-6 am each day. Sucks cuz I gotta get up, feed her, then back to bed for another hour and a half or so.

    ANYWAY...when I got up this morning to feed her I saw that my Droid X was frozen at the red eye during boot. Seemed a little creepy to be greeted by the big red eye at 4:15 in the morning. I did wonder if 2.2 was getting "quietly" pushed but once I power-cycled the phone, it was still 2.1.

    Still though...to wake up to the big red eye...weird...and the cat didn't even really need food; maybe she was creeped out by the eye too...

    Must be close

    I was at my local VZW store yesterday for service and got into a discussion with the store manager. Take this as you wish but this is from my converstation with him. His phone is a DX and we got talking about 2.2. He said that he really wants the upgrade and that it's killing him because the new DX's that he is getting in the store already have 2.2 installed on them and it's not fair that he has to wait until he gets the OTA upgrade.

    Not claiming that this is fact, but this is exactly what the store manager said to me yesterday afternoon.

    Any word on if they are going to rollout to every one at the same time versus slowly over a week? Also will we be able to force the update via settings and checking for an update?
