Default Droid X getting Gingerbread?

When will you get a Gingerbread update? | Android Atlas - CNET Blogs

So I just wanted to know if this really was true. A friend showed me this, and got me curious. I contemplated rooting my phone today, but this made me hold off.

I have been reading about rooting my phone for the past few days and have been wondering, is it REALLY that worth it? Is it really that risky?



Oh, and btw I finally registered here lol. First post, ftw.

I didn't know if this applied to the root section of these forums or not, so I just stuck it here. Sorry, if I messed up.

Root man, root. There are no guarantees that the X will get gingerbread and maderstock makes it easy to revert to stock.

I am guessing the X will get gingerbread....it is still to this day, the best android phone on Verizon and is still a big seller...if they dont update Moto will have a LOT of angry customers on thier hands.

when we will get is is completely up to motorizon.

but i would Root if i were you. just make a backup of the stock ROM right after you Root...this way you will be able to restore to stock, then take the OTA to gingerbread super easy. there are soo many benefits to rooting, that it would be silly not to do it.

Thanks guys. I just didn't know what to do. So if I backup my stock right after I root today, I should be fine? And by the way, what would the best way to go about rooting and backing up my DX? I have read the tutorials and all, but everything still seems a little vague... lol.

there are multiple ways to accomplish each task:

'z4root' app to root your phone. 'droidx boostrapper' to create a nandroid backup. then you can load one of the few roms if you wish & have some fun with your phone

If you haven't seen it already, in the rooting section of the DX forum there is a thread on RoOoLeRs Guide - this is an excellent in-depth guide to rooting, overclocking and Roms. It helped me to do all that when I was finally ready to root.

So glad I did now - I don't think you'll regret it at all...

Enjoy!

Grab Z4 root from XDA (its not on the market) and tap a button and it will do it for you.

then grab droid x bootstrap, bootstrap recovery, then reboot recovery, and make a backup of stock 2.3.340....
as long as you dont delete any of the stock apps before you make the backup, you will be golden. you can flash back to that backup, grab the OTA and install it just like normal. this will loose Root, but you will be on the latest OTA which will get cracked fairly quickly hopefully.

I'm waiting until the next major update before I root. I came from a jailbroken iPhone, and even stock, I've been more than happy with my DX, had it for about 5 months now. I'm in no hurry to root, but since I think we are only getting one more major update, I'll wait until we get it, then not worry about it. but coming from the jailbreak community, I second sdot_sd: backup, backup backup! Very first thing you should do after rooting/jailbreaking! back that thang up so you can at least recover it back to stock easily if something doesn't work quite right! Save my butt once or twice on my iPhone!

I remember reading the original P3Droid tweet that the article cites, and I don't know where they're getting the impression that release is imminent. All he said was that it was stable and that it was coming out "soonish".

I vote Motorola keeps this stupidly blurred update and give us the keys to their bootloader.

The thing that makes me skeptical is that the rumor is indicating a release date thats the same as the release date for the WiFi-only XOOM tablet. There would be a lot going on for Motorola to micro-manage...

P3Droid is currently trying to find a way to root gingerbread for the X. Seems he's having trouble though. one clicks don't work. He needs all the help he can get.

it will happen eventually...hopefully he soon if the rumors of the OTA being pushed this weekend turn out to be true...

i'll be updating to GingerBlur regardless of the fact that there is root or not...ive heard good things about how well GingerBlur is running on the X...

P3droid is running into problems finding a way to root gingerbread for us. One clicks have all failed. We all better brush up on our adb skills if root is achieved. ha ha.

i wouldn't even consider it to be "problems" yet...we have to give the Moto devs SOME credit and think they tried some sort of new tricks to block root access...

if P3 is still working on it a month from now, and we all have GB installed on our phones...then its a problem...

Hmmm. Not sounding good.
It will get rooted. Don't worry about it. Apple has been patching holes in iOS for 4 years to stop jailbreaking, and new holes are always found.

I agree I would rather have 2.2.340 rooted than 2.3 not rooted. While I am sure the developers will try 2.3 and get root, until they do there will be nothing we can do to make it better than what they push to us.

However there is a lot going on with 2.3 so I have a feeling this will happen sooner than later.

Does Motorola supervise the guy at Staples as he rings up your Xoom? They are already done with the Xoom it is shipped out and their is most likely no overlap with any management or development between these products.

I'm not saying I believe the Sunday rumor, but I see no reason why the Xoom would effect it either way.

how can you guys fully appreciate 2.3 rooted if you skip experiencing 2.3 unrooted? I will make the jump to stock 2.3 when it becomes available just to see all the changes. It will get rooted sooner or later.

For me there are just too many benefits with having a rooted phone versus not rooted.

Gingerbread is soooo last year. Ice cream sandwich has already been reported on.

So I'm going to set my sights on Hot Fudge Sundae!

(Maybe with Neopolitan ice cream - yummy!)
