Droid X with Android 2.2.1

Preface this with the usual disclaimer: Everything you see above can be faked in about 45 seconds. But with that out of the way, it looks like the Motorola Droid X may be getting an update to Android 2.2.1 sometime in the near future. In all likelihood we're looking at bugfixes -- and the probable addition of Verizon's fledgling VCAST app store. As for when? Your guess is as good as ours. [My Droid World via Android Central Forums]

Update: We're hearing the the update should start rolling out on or about Nov. 23-29.

I really hope so... froyo didn't break the X, but its not as good as 2.1 was on it. hopefully this fixes the sms bug

I agree, the sms bug is very annoying.

I keep hearing about the sms bug on the x, i haven't had any problems with it? I have however had a problem with my camera; i'll yake a picture and it will goto the home screen and wont let me back into the camera without a reboot... and occasionally it will not store a picture correctly?

I heard the Droid X was garbage on 2.2,with a plethora of bugs like the lock calling

Off Topic: I've had my replacement N1 for a week now.... why hasn't the OTA 2.2.1 update hit my phone?

I got my X after the 2.2 update. I had ZERO problems moving from the OG Droid.

Looking forward to the update

2.2 essentially killed the beast that was the Droid X. Let's hope Motorola has fixed their mistakes because right now I don't think I'll ever buy a Motorola phone again.

damn and i just flashed rubix 1.6

Thablackguy says:

lol i know... i just put apex on !!

revwill says:

Wow. The negative hyperbole on this thread is astonishing.

I've had relatively few problems with my X since upgrading to Froyo, and nothing I can't cope with quite easily. My phone is pretty dang far from rubbish or a defeated beast.

Stang68 says:

For some of us, it isn't hyperbole.

arundc says:

Big 2nd. I am quite surprised about the negativity too. Yes, there are a few bugs with the 2.2 update on the X but nothing that screams out saying "I am done". I don't mess with the phone, I don't play with a beta o/s... I leave all of that to my PC.

people will always be angry when their stuff doesn't work

Verified with internal source at Verizon's QA Group.
2.3.280.MB810.Verizon.en.US will be the new system version applied to the update. They said that it is in fact a 2.2 bug fix update, But "they" were unable to verify if it will be 2.2.1. Current ETA for OTA rollout, 11/23 (same rollout process as usual; will take a few days) Hopefully this may clear up any questions. As soon as I get any other screenies, I will send them to BGR. Thanks!!

Oh, maybe, send to us? phil at androidcentral dot com. :p

i literally saw this EXACT same post on another forum questioning a 2.2.1 release. could this mean that someone from Motorola is going around posting this everywhere to calm people down?


it's post #7 by TeKNoTroNiK

Clow says:

I agree with willie. The dx still crushes all others

intheb0x says:

Lol maybe if the bootloader ever gets unlocked.

As for now, with all it's bugs and serious quality issues, its far from crushing anything but verizon with repair notices.

PortareAF says:

DX has a few problems, but not as wide spread as some think, on the other hand adding of vcast store is completely unnecessary, the last thing the X needs is more bloatware. Thanks for the Blockbuster app, that was well worth it...Having fun in Chapter 11.

Does this mean we're going to have to unroot and put back all the.crapware just to get the update?

calizae74 says:

I'm loving my DX but that sms bug is getting old for me. I get a lot of messages and they get mixed all up with old and new messages.

fysics#AC says:

yea the bug sucks, but get a replacement sms app like handcent sms and just use that (free in the market). i've been using that since day 2 with my DX and while it inherited the bug with froyo they fixed it pretty quick.

J T M says:

Does this mean i'm going to lose root?

Clow says:

Who gives a shit about a locked bootloader, custom roms are nothing but trouble, nothing ever works 100%. Dx is the best phone, I mean name 1 smartphone that has no bugs at all.......it does not exist. And that's a fact

john_5_24 says:

Blackberry Storm? :)

I hope you're kidding lol. The whole reason I got a DX today was because my Storm FINALLY broke (thank god). Worst piece of technology ever. My Super Nintendo is more reliable than that thing.
