Sitting by your Droid X waiting on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update? It ain't happening just yet. Yeah, Verizon said it's starting today, but in limited numbers, folks. And remember how Motorola sought out an initial batch of testers? They just got their marching orders, which read thusly:
The update will be pushed late tonight. If you go to bed, it should be waiting for you in the morning. West Coast members and night owls may be up to see it.
It’s a good idea to keep your phone charged if possible and plugged in overnight. You don’t have to keep it on, but you can.
If you are rooted, you must flash back to the standard Droid X software to receive the update. (Even the n we can’t guarantee the update will work.)
Again, that's for the folks who got in on Motorola's initial testing. We're willing to bet someone will leak out the update file for manual installation. But it sounds the vast majority of us will have to wait until early next week -- likely after the Memorial Day Holiday.
