First the good: The 1.13.604 software update for the Motorola Droid X finally started downloading last night, which means we can finally stop running this picture. Check out the official update thread in our forums.
Now, the not as good: There are a few reports (AC Forums, Engadget, Motorola, DroidForums, et al) of Droid X screens going wonky. Some report that a reset cleared things up, which doesn't really point to a hardware problem, does it? Others are flat-out returning the phone. There's always going to be some rate of failure. Welcome to the tech world. It's hard to tell just yet how widespread any problem may be (though it does not appear to have anything to do with the update). Sound off if you've had an issue.
And we'd been hoping to avoid this, but apparently some of you are a little confused as to how to remove the Droid X's battery. We've got you covered after the break.
