Question Rooted Droid X via in radiocom, should I update to .605?

I'm rooted using radiocom and want to know should I update to .605?

I can't install the update because I guess the root won't allow the update. It looks like I would need to un-root then install the update then root again.

Any benefit to update to .605?

being rooted shouldnt prevent you from taking the OTA, i would just do a system check and take the upgrade (if it offers it, which it should)


being rooted doesnt do anything to your phone, except give you access to things you wouldnt normally be able to access.

The benifits to 605 depends on what you're running now. i'm assuming 602? If that's the case then the only difference in 605 from 602 is they fixed the lag in the keyboard.

VoidedSaint-Thank you for the reply. When I try and install the update the phone powers off then powers back on with a window that shows an open box with an progress meter and an android then my phone powers back on and a window pops up with an error "Update Status the software update failed" i then press the "ok" button. The system version still says .602. Even after a battery pull I still have .602

Now that I see what cougar214 said I see that the update is not all that critical. So i really don't need the update but still have a mystery as to why my DX won't install the update.

+1. If you have the phone modified in any way, bloat removed, frozen, etc. the update will fail. To recieve an ota your phone MUST be stock in every way. This of course doesn't apply to being rooted. Rooting doesn't change any system files.

yeah, i hope you havent deleted bloatware, its always best to freeze it, then unfreeze it, if you havent done any of this, there may be other things playing against you, and hopefully we will be able to narrow them down better, as long as you can give us more insight

Depending on how much skill you have with your droid you can just add the missing apk files back and reinstall the missing bloat. However if this route is to involved for you then an sbf is in order. This will actually be your best option. Sbf to 602, take the ota to 605, then root again and remove your unwanted bloat. But might i recommend you don't remove it, use titanium backup to freeze all the bloat instead.

credemann in all honesty i would just suggest you SBF your phone, it will be alot easier than trying to locate those apk's you deleted. i promise you that

here is the link to the SBF

The only reason I suggest adding the apk files back is some people don't wanna go through the, sometimes, long process of re adding all their apps, texts, etc. An SBF is always the easiest path to take of course.

True. But if you're already on 602 then you can just open the 602 zip and pull them from there. This of course is assuming you have d/l'ed the 602 sbf file.

i do believe those apk's may be signed, so he would have to use 7zip and possibly resign them.. but i doubt that.

Thank you everyone for your help! I saw the tutorial for sbf back to .602 and feel comfortable doing it but don't think i want to go through the trouble of setting things up on my phone again just to fix a keyboard bug. However if another update becomes available then I would definitely sbf and move forward. Thanks again!

Yeah. No more Moto updates for sure. Now we are fully dependent on our devs for our dx needs.
