Default DROIDX Update 4.5.605 rolling out. Keyboard Bug Fixed??

Looks like the laggy keyboard should be getting fixed (for those that are experiencing it w/stock keyboard - but who uses that anyway ), but looking at the size of this update, 113MB, I hope the root exploit isn't getting "fixed" along with it, as mentioned in the article. I have seen where folks took the update and were still able to root with the one click method.

DROIDX Update to 4.5.605 is on the Way, the Keyboard Bug is Finally Getting Fixed

Personally, I am on SwiftKey and don't have any issues, so no idea what the bug actually is.

The update page says it could be up to 113 MB depending on which software version you are updating from and could be as little as 8 MB. The root exploit currently being used has NOT been closed according to P3Droid so it is still rootable. However I would wait to update to this as many people are reporting more bugs being introduced with this update than it fixes.

No keyboard bugs here, using FlexT9. Hope this fixes the camera issue, tired of having to reset the resolution for still and video every time I open it.

I would be hesitant to put 'keyboard bug fixed' in the title as we don't know if it will actually be fixed given Moto's track record with updates.

Install in standard recovery. Don't forget to rename your old update.zip before putting this on the sd card.

Updates will start pushing out today. That's a fact, and before you all start screaming you didn't get it, it will be a phased push as usual so it may be a day or two before you see the notification for it. I don't plan to do it yet, until I hear it isn't all jacked up. There is also mention of a Media Dock issue fix, but I have no details on that (I do know when I undock my phone, the speakerphone comes on!?!?).

If you are rooted, this thing is going to install itself anyway, isn't it? Will a rooted phone be unrooted and if that happens do you simply do the one click root method to re-root?

Also would like to know how rooted users upgrade?

Any word if the camera bug was fixed too? Not very hopeful. It's got to be like 2 lines of code and they have acknowledged the bug, how they aren't fixing it is beyond me.

They want you to buy a new Moto phone, that's why. I am starting to think these bugs are intentional.

From a few other forums, I read that the camera bug is still there and the phone isn't all that much more improved. One key note: upgrading will remove root, but the one-click method will still give it back!

Sure boots up faster and is ready to roll more quickly. With all my apps/widgets loaded up my performance has seemed to have improved though there is no way to measure. Quadrant scores improved.

BTW, in the ROM tool bx you can toggle freeze to the updater. Got this from another forum. Supposedly this will stop the update from loading. We'll see.

I seem to recall that if you were previously rooted, the 1-click won't work. It only works on one that's never been rooted or freshly SBF'd. Can anyone confirm?

Since I read numerous places that the one-key root will restore root, I let it download this update. However, it fails to uninstall. I am stuck in a loop. It keeps powering down and trying to reinstall.

I unfroze all the bloatware, removed theme mods, am completely stock. Can't figure it out. Still trying to see what the deal is.

What I like about Swiftkey is it remembers stuff I've type previously. So if I wipe and restore my apps+data from TIBU, then have to enter my 4 email accounts, I can type my signature with 5 taps "S" brings up "Sent" and one of the next options is "from". So 5 taps gets me "Sent from my DroidX." (The period is my 5th tap.)

If I bang out an email reply, most words are 2, maybe 3 keys. It learns from the words you use. Good stuff, even if you have to pay for it.

This is all I can suggest:

Long press on your current wi-fi connection and choose "forget". Re-add it.

O/W what encryption are you using? WEP? WPA? WPA2? (WEP is not safe, choose WPA2 if given the option)

Have you tried checking for a firmware update for your router?

Have you tried rebooting it (router and phone)?

Just installed about 30 minutes ago. Went smooth as silk. Haven't done much with it yet but so far seams ok.


I had to manualy check to get it. I'm in Hawaii.


I prefer to do all my downloading of updates (cuz they're usually huge files) after midnight here in Hawaii. Most of the mainland is sleeping and Hawaii is too. After midnight is when the network is ususally handling it's lightest load and therefore 3G is the speediest. I have a Droid X and it downloaded the 113MB file in less than 5 minutes.

So, lots of people have done this update, did it fix the camera bug where you have to set the resolution every time you open the camera? That's the only bug I really care about. I have the update ready to manually pull OTA, but I'm holding off on it for now.

Feel the same way.

No, they didn't get to that bug yet. It's got to be the easiest thing to fix and they've even confirmed knowing about it. It's bad that they haven't fixed it.

I don't even know what they keyboard bug is since I use swype and doesn't really seem like there's anything else in this update, so I'll probably skip it.

What exactly is this keyboard bug anyhow?

If I did want to do this update, what is the procedure for rooted users w/frozen apps? I have to defrost and get back to stock. Then what?

i'm on the last update, gingerbread, on an UNrooted X. i don't notice any keyboard bug, i don't use swype or anything else. the only thing i do notice that i don't like is that when i try to forward a text and go to put in contacts, it doesn't allow me to select multiple contacts at once. (i have to add them one at a time)

i will not be upgrading to this newer version since from what i've read here there are more problems AFTER the upgrade. my question is:

how do i avoid/ignore this update??

I got the update prompt yesterday. Accepted without thinking. I was running rooted GB .602 with bloat frozen, so i expected it to fail.

Surprise surprise it was successful and my root access went right with it. So "successful" is a matter of opinion.

So I accepted this update...it added this little peice of joy.
Now you can't always keep the screen on, no option for it, only varying degrees of timeout time (0:15, 0:30, 1:00, 2:00, & 5:00)...not even while plugged in. I wonder if this will affect playing a video or movie and not touching it.
Effers!

I just SBF'd back and am installing 605 now. I'm hoping I have more stability with the GPS. After several lockups this weekend, and being in areas with no cell service at all, it left me very concerned. I was routed through the mountains of West VA, the phone locked up and the screen went out. Had to pull the battery to come back on.

Once I got it restarted, the phone would get a GPS signal but no 3g, thus it couldn't pull any map names or directions. Kind of stupid.

If it continues I'm calling VZW and maybe will hope for a X2.

Now you can't always keep the screen on, no option for it, only varying degrees of timeout time (0:15, 0:30, 1:00, 2:00, & 5:00)...not even while plugged in. I wonder if this will affect playing a video or movie and not touching it.
Effers!
I just checked my screen timeout choices and I have 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes and never timeout. Also, I use an app called Keep Screen from the market that allows you to choose apps where you don't want the screen to timeout.

I am rooted on .605 and I have the same options as B360155.

mxsjw, I bet you have it too. Go check your options again and see if you can scroll DOWN the list. After 30 minutes, the Never Timeout option appears. At first, I thought it was gone and noticed I had to scroll down to see it.

I'm NOT rooted anymore...bone stock, phone and card were wiped clean.
Settings>Display>Screen timeout>0:15, 0:30, 1:00, 2:00, & 5:00 is all I have...I cannot scroll in that screen. Weird, huh?

hmm...just got mine today. stock OTA previously.

installed quickly, and i wiped the system cache after the first reboot. first impressions are good...phone seems *way* snappier, though quadrant is normal (16-1700). camera is actually usable now.

think i'm gonna keep this one stock...anticipating a resell as soon as the prime is available!

Hmmm, damned if I know what that's about. I just checked again to make sure, and I have:
0:15, 0:30, 1, 2, 10, 30 minutes, and Never timeout. I don't even have 5 minutes as an option???

I went ahead and got root again immediately after the update, but that shouldn't cause any differences in the timeout options. Very odd.

I'm not sure if this is a noob issue or what, but I'm running 602 SBF root, tried to run this update and ended up in a boot loop until I cleared the cache. Now it wants to download again. Something I'm missing here?

You mean you retain your settings after a reboot?

Because it's not fixed for anyone else. Still reverts back to 2mp widescreen.
