Default Can You Run Stock 2.2 On Droid X

Can you remove ninjablur (or whatever it is officially called) and just run stock 2.2 (or 2.1 for that matter)?

I love that my droid isn't all gussied up with nonsense from Moto and if I end up going with a droid X, I want to make sure I don't have to root to be able to run a clean os.

Thanks!

Man, did I miss this somewhere? I thought last I read it couldn't be disabled, only the widgets.

IDK maybe that is why it cannot be disabled. Yes it has a different app launcher and has some blur widgets but it isn't technically motorblur.

IDK just a thought.

I guess I hit on a hot button issue by accident, but I don't think my question has really been answered yet.

Verizon and Moto may not be calling whatever custom skin they have layered on top of 2.1 "blur" or "motoblur" or whatever, but there is still a skin on top, right?

This is unlike the Droid which just runs stock android, and, from what I've been reading means that it will take longer for the Droid X to be upgraded to 2.2 because Verizon and Moto need to work with the additional skin rather than just the stock 2.1 version of android.

Seems like pure marketing to be insisting that the Droid X doesn't run "blur" when what we (at least I) wanted to know was does it run a stock version of android or a custom version. Seems clear now that the answer is a custom version.

And boo to that. I'm sticking with my Droid. If I want something that slows down my phone, I'll add it myself thank you.

From what most people have said there is no way to prove that it will "slow" the release of update or "slow" the phone at all.

In all honesty, no one really knows. Brand new product, google is changing their release schedules soon. Everything is changing quickly in the very near future.

even with this 2.1 X running "shadowblur" , the phone still spanks the evo on 2.1 and squares up with the nexus one on 2.2.

Case is pretty much CLOSED if you ask me.

Im sure developers are working on 2.2 at this moment since this is going to be verizons flagship phone and it was stated that 2.2 will be released sometime this summer whenever that will be who knows. It would be pretty awesome if on launch day they had 2.2 being pushed ota

Agree the benchmark tests show it is super fast and will only get faster and blow the other phones out of the water speed wise. cant wait to get a hold of this beast.
