Droid X update

The Motorola Droid X is on the cusp of getting an update for some bugfixes and new features. No, it's not Gingebread. We repeat: It is not Gingerbread. The list of improvements in Version 2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.USIBP_C_01.09.07P) is pretty damn long, though, and comprises:

  • Preloaded Madden NFL football game.
  • Preloaded Adobe Flash Player 10.1.
  • Preloaded MyVerizon application (v5).
  • Added Data Widget to home panel.
  • Improved Android OS Froyo stability
  • Fixes to Exchange Activesync
  • Fixes to Visual Voicemail

And many, many more. You can find all of the changes at the source link. (Warning: It's a PDF). [Verizon via Android Central Forums] Thanks, beastmg!

Droid X getting non-Gingerbread update

26 Comments

I agree why do they keep adding apps that I can't uninstall and seem to always be open in the background!

This is what I really wish Google would fix with android. No matter what you can't have an app installed that can't be removed.

HTC desire got also today new nonGB update.
Updated few mins ago.
More details at xda forums...

While I love my DX, this makes me strongly consider only a pure Google phone next summer. This added crap-ware that you can't remove is nonsense, and VZW is about as fast as a one-legged turtle with its updates.

I gave you a 2nd chance Moto after the Razr & you blew it.

About time. Moto has us feeling like a lonely step-child up here. I do like forward to Gingerbread coming to Droid X tho...in 2012!

Slightly longer than tomorrow, but shorter than "any day now."

Thank you for choosing VerizonWireless where we give you what you want (and then some), but only when we want.

It's a feature that is included with the Phil Blur UI. It's thicker and less runny than Visual Voice Mail.

unrooting and restoring is kind of a PITA. I second on titanium.good stuff. There's a guy who hosts all the current apks for those who don't practice safe rooting. Just search "droid x default applications" he has them singly and in one big package. I wonder what the verizon iphone is going to be like. It'll probably be unrecognizable after big red gets a hold of it. vcast anyone?

Just tried updating (East Coast - Buffalo Area). Received the following message.... "Check for update was not available at this time. Try again later."
