Sorry folks, you can quit hitting About Phone > System Updates. You’ve probably heard this already, but the new Droid X Gingerbread OTA said to be rolling out is NOT in fact an OTA. The confusing part was, the update was officially signed by Motorola. What most suspect happened is that this was only supposed to go to Motorola Experience testers and came from the engineer working on it himself. Which is why no one else is getting it. This was never meant to be a OTA, it just got accidentally sent to some smart chap who was able to pull all the system files and get them sent over to P3droid. P3droid (who sold his soul to the devil) then works his black magic on the files, and poof! Root has already been had via flashable patch. There’s a very complicated 3 step procedure (sarcasm, jeez) that’s detailed over at MyDroidWorld. The point of this post was not to hit whore myself but to clarify that you will NOT be getting this specific build rolled out OTA to your phone. There’s a ridiculously small chance you might, but you probably won’t. There will still be an eventual OTA rollout, hopefully for the Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global as well. However, those feeling brave can go ahead and hit the source link below to get their Gingy on. I plan on going back to the original leak later today. Cheers!
P.S. Hey look! His links lasted through the night! This is a big deal. Because the files are signed by Motorola, they rightfully belong to them and they have every right to issue a C&D and have them taken down. You know what that mean, get em’ while they’re hot!
Get it while it’s hot folks: P3droid and the Team Black Hat have released the supposed OTA for the Droid X getting users up to 2.3.3 and system build 4.5.588. This is newer than the one that was leaked a couple weeks ago and bring several more than minor updates and fixes. Speed, smoothness and the latest and greatest from Mountain View are yours for the taking! Just head on over to MyDroidWorld for the downloads. P3droid has tweeted that he doesn’t know how long he can host these files before an expected C&D from Motorola. All the more reason to upgrade tonight, right? I’m actually considering upgrading to it myself. Yes I have a Droid 2, but we all know it’ll work at least 90% right? We’ll see. Hit up the links now while you still can! I’ll be posting an updated review and all the changes and tweaks I can find as soon as a version for the Droid 2 gets released.
P.S. Did I mention the best part? P3droid, Lord High Rooter, has already blessed with the gift of super user on this new leak! That’s right, not even a day’s wait folks! Everyone give a shout out to TBH and P3droid on Twitter.
