Gingerbread on the Droid XGingerbread on the Droid X

We've got no doubt that Verizon and Motorola are working on bringing Gingerbread to the Droid X. We said as much in our predictions of which phones will get Android 2.3 upgrades. And so it's little surprise that we're starting to see (reportedly) official builds leak out. And for all intents and purposes, it looks like how we'd expect Gingerbread to look on the DX. Real question, of course, is when we might actually see an update drop. Check out the full annoying animated GIF after the break, if you dare. [My Droid World via Android Central Forums]

Scream is right.

If droid gets official Gingerbread before nexus one there will be screaming.

Don't fix the typo Phil, I love it.

gahhhh, totally molested and raped the feel of gingerbread. I hate motoblur

rayosx32 says:

I second that notion icebike... now all we need is for someone to chime in about how their Galaxy S phone doesn't have froyo... let the SCREEMING begin....

Pissed off Nexus One owner.

koolin says:

x2 indeed

tehwarrior says:

Looks sweet.

htowngator says:

One main reason why I'd still stick w/ Moto despite bootloader crap: They always keep up with the OS updates faster than others.

greygoose0 says:

Well, officially/unofficially, my MyTouch 4g is running gingerbread 2.3.2.... just saying... ;-)

josuearisty says:

wow, thats the new BLUR! I wanna see whats new!

fantasma4 says:

It will be coming soon... last night i was unable to check for phone updates... usually says your device is up to date... but last night it was unable to check... las time that happened was when froyo rolled out... i slipped thru the cracks when 2.2.1 rolled out and got it in the middle of the night by accident, since it was only supposed to hit certain test account, and the official roll out was a few days later. Droid Does.

El Jefe says:

BRING IT!!!

pDoG says:

we all you know you can run unofficially run builds of gingerbread, welcome to the club. Now i guess are there going to be certain things that stick ui and theme wise? Surely htc sense is not going to have a a black notification bar.

Simer03 says:

I have Gingerbread on my Nexus One thanks to Cyanogen!!

pDoG says:

these can honestly be fake, but who knows.

whsingleton says:

Is this the build with the SD card security bug?

patfactorx says:

D2G get the update first plz. Our phone is newer and better

lshuman says:

Not!!!!

Ha.

PhoenixMike says:

Better? How? Because it can be used globally?

cmslick3 says:

as long as they remove the motoblur BS we will all be happy. I miss my OG droid...

KwietStorm says:

Christ almighty what is goin on with the Nexus One build

I was hoping that the Droid X would get a BIONIC skin.

spunkmeijer says:

Yes, the GIF screens are annoying, but GB on the DX looks awesome, I can't wait.

shawnzulma says:

I checked for an update and my DX is downloading 2.3 right now!

-IRON- says:

i call shenanigans

ScootD says:

you beat me to the shenanigans comment.

cmslick3 says:

The next person who says shenanigans is going to get pistol whipped...

slycen says:

Hey Farva, what's the name of the restaurant you like? with all the goofy shit on the wall and the mozzarella sticks?

shawnzulma says:

OK Update

My Droid X has now been upgraded to 2.3.340.en.us version but still Android 2.2.1

If MOTOCRAP gets gingerbread before the purist vanilla (i.e. nexus one, G2, OG Droid and so on.) Then that is bullcrap. I have been waiting for a long time. HTC G2 user.

DVNO says:

Waiting for a long time?!?!?! The G2 just came out in September, RELAX!!!

balthuszar says:

i'm still running an OG droid...and rumors are that it's dead in the water to getting official updates...so froyo is as good as it gets for us OG droid hanger-on-ers...

I will believe it when I see it.

shawnzulma says:

This is the System Version and not the Android Version but I have no idea what System Version 2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US means. I guess a carrier update of some kind.

G.murph says:

(nvm)

Exciting news. I just wish they'd slow down the animated gif so I can get a better chance to savor the Gingerbread goodness... :)

I think all us X users should take a deep breath and save this thought:

All this means is that there is a better CHANCE that the DX is going to officially get Gingerbread. That's it. No more, no less. There is also a chance Moto may make the build and decide to not release it.

So before we all work ourselves into a froth demanding a release date...Just be happy that Moto is at least giving it a whirl.

craigrn16 says:

Wow this looks nice. Moto finally figured out how to make a good UI. Surprise that they are getting Ginger bread so quick though

beto89 says:

IMO, that actually looks decent compared to the ugly motoblur launcher thats on the X right now. Hope to see this update soon.

eric6052 says:

Gingerbread will be nice if we get it on the X but i'm not really concerned about it to much. The upgrades that Gingerbread brings just aren't that big of a deal to me.

El Poblano says:

Anyone notice the lack of Blur? If this is destined for the X then I'm sure we will have to wait 6 months for Moto to 'upgrade' the stock interface to Blur. This is probably just a first build before Blur is crapped all over the OS.

i call fake. anyone notice the p3droid icon in one of the pics?

balthuszar says:

which icon is the p3droid icon? and since when do devs put their own icons on their roms?

MAybe this is actually an official build. And it may be coming out next week to pre-empt the release of the iPhone on VZW. Moto has to be feeling the pressure, so it would make sense that they rush to pu this on their premier phone.

DrDiff says:

Good to hear this! Bloatware still sucks though!
