Official: Droid X Users getting Gingerbread OTA

Once again treating the Droid 2 like the stepchild of the family it is, the Droid X is first to get a true, official update OTA to Android 2.3.3. This update does appear to be at least somewhat different than what was leaked out just 2 weeks ago. The main difference many are jumping to conclusions about is a mysterious .jar file labeled “netflix”. Stipulations abound that perhaps Motorola got their licensing figured out and could enable Netflix on their already to market Droids. I for one hope that this isn’t something exclusive to the Droid X and does in fact make it’s way to the Droid 2. No OTA has been confirmed for the Droid 2, but I’m sure there’s a couple brave souls out there willing to SBF back to stock to try out. Apparently its not all Droid X’s getting the OTA, it’ll probably take a while to reach everyone. Not that anyone reading this will probably want to take the OTA till we can confirm it has been rooted. P3droid is currently running it on his Droid X, so I’m sure it won’t be too long before we have something to go on. His earliest tweets suggest this update patches a lot of security holes from the leaked ROM so we may be waiting quite a while. In the meantime, how’s everyone doing with the original GB leak? Still running it? Too lazy to downgrade back? Depending on how my day goes I may just flash back to 2.2 to see if I can get anything on my R2D2 unit. Once we get root, it’s gonna be hard to turn down that super smooth Gingerbread update if it has Netflix baked in. Can’t wait!

You stay classy, World Wide Web.
