Mad props go out to Jboxen over at DroidForums.net!!! He (or she) has concocted a way for you to get all those delicious Gingerbread ROMs that have leaked (are leaking?) working on your Droid 2!!! I haven’t had a chance to test this out myself so YMMV as of right now, but I will definitely be trying this out tomorrow. I’m going to bed after one more post. This new flashable .zip is a godsend for anyone drooling (maybe a little exaggeration) over the new leaks for the Droid X, originally thought to be an OTA. Now confirmed to just be a mistakenly pushed (but officially signed) testing update, this new leak has several improvements and I personally hope for notification LED function as well as improved backlighting on the softkeys and the hardware keyboard. I flashed back to stock 2.2 foolishly hoping against hope for an OTA that never came and then decided just to come back to the original Gingerbread leaks made for the Droid 2. I’ll be trying this method on the new Droid X Gingerbread leaks tomorrow and posting back to let you guys know how it goes. If you’ve already tried it, feel free to provide feedback in the comments. Happy flashing!
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.
