If you are still holding on to your Motorola Droid 2 or Motorola Droid X, and have been hoping and praying for a Gingerbread build, your prayers have been answered tonight. The folks at My Droid World have landed their hands on a leak, that brings an updated MotoBlur to the table, along with the OS update. So, if you have either of these devices, you can update to this leak, which is unfortunately not rooted currently. Both of the devices have been confirmed to be able to be downgraded via SBF if you want to at a later time to await the official. Delay no longer, and get to downloading.

no root? looks like ima have to hold off the updating.

edit: what if i am already rooted will the root stay if i update?

No root means I will be waiting as well. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of improvements this will bring though.

I downloaded this rom without wiping. I was running Apex 1.41. Took a few minutes to boot up and I even had one loop but so far so hood. The new gingerbread keyboard is really nice.

wait when u say there was one loop does that mean that you did have to wipe at some moment or did it just work itself out of it by itself?

The gingerbread keyboard has been available for a long time over on XDA. There are even themed versions. I personally use a blue one.

How about Droid 2 Global??
And the comments are messed up and shifted, my user name is thomashedd but it will show up as something else, watch.

Just flashed it...I was running Apex 1.4.1 before...went into a bootloop..had to do the wipe...working just fine now...Blur is cleaner and tighter. Will update when i have had more time to play with it.

"Still holding on to your Droid X"? It's 8 months old! Who has that much cash lying around to upgrade new smartphones every 6 months?

I downloaded the first link and was installing it. It was installing for about 10 minutes when it aborted for some sort of error. My phone was stuck on the boot logo and I tried pulling out the battery and whatnot. So now I have to restore it with the .sbf file and whatnot. Once it's fixed I'm definitely gonna try it again!

I wonder how long will it take for developers to find a way to root this thing? At least we have it.

Sorry if this is a retarded question, but do I need to be currently rooted in order to download and install this leaked version?

Every time I see something like this it makes me just a little more pissed at Samsung. :(
