Default A New DX Update...for those who still care!

Looks like another update is about to roll out for the beloved Droid X. What is it? No one knows, and it's doubtful it will be ICS (but we can dream, right?). Anyway, I saw the news about a new soak on a couple of forums and thought I'd link them here in case you hadn't heard yet.

At the very least, I can hang on to this thing for another month until my upgrade date comes up, assuming this update doesn't jack it all up. Or a new phone comes out.

DROID X Lives! Update Will Arrive Soon, to Motorola Feedback Members Sooner – Droid Life

Motorola Droid X may soon be in line for another update | Android Central


Now the sad part, I need to unroot

Update: Change Log here...nuts!

Do you have to unroot before the update? No, right?

DROID X Update is Build 4.5.621 – Fixes a Whole Bunch of Bugs – Droid Life

These fixes tend to migrate to the custom roms, but since I'm on MIUI, not sure about that.

Here's the Verizon page where it says the upgrade is coming soon, and also lists the benefits to the upgrade

Software Update: DROID X2 by Motorola - COMING SOON!

I signed up with Moto, waiting for the invite to d/l and test. It's supposed to address some of the bugs I experience, such as powering up on its own, crashes while playing music, etc., as listed in the change log.

Looks like the camera settings has been finally addressed.

My biggest problem as of late has been memory, mine acts really funny every few days, becomes really slow and finally locks up. MAybe this will keep me going until September when I'm due.

Where do you sign up?

They finally fixed the camera bug. They knew about that well before the last update. There was no excuse to not have fixed that then.

Yes the auto link does say X2 but when you look at the pdf files they do say Droid X. I guess we'll see when the upgrade is finally released.

I still haven't upgraded to .605 so I see no reason to get .621. No problems here.

Gee, thanks a lot Moto. It's not like we haven't been screaming for this since the initial GB update. As trivial as it may seem to some, this was the main reason why I shelved my X after the initial update and switched to a Pre2 (great phone btw, just to small of a screen as 4.3" has me spoiled).

Day late and a dollar short though thanks to an app for rooted users called adj brightness. Liberty rocks, and I'll never go back to stock again. This Liberty build has been so stable, my old Nokia 3360 dumbphone would have been jealous.

Suck it Moto! Your hardware is top notch but your software blows. But I'm not bitter

Since I've had no problem with my current System version (4.5.596) I have been postponing the 4.5.602 for some time (like 6 months). I read comments/reviews here and in DX Forum.com where many people commented on the update not being successful, or worth doing for the update (radio update?) or having trouble with their DX not functioning after this update.

I currently have System version 4.5.596.MB810.Verizon.en.US. Will I be required to upgrade to 4.5.602, that I've been avoiding, to be able to get the recently announced .621 update. Is the .621 even worth doing or is it too soon for anyone to really know that .621 update will provide repairs/patches worth taking up 15MB (but I've also seen this .621 update is 113MB).

Thanks

It might go through to .621 but it might not...jumping from .596 to .621 could cause issues...no way to tell...

You're already 2 updates behind...if it has not promted you to to update to .605 then my guess is you wont even be notified of the .621 update until you allow the .602 update to install

You're right about the hardware coming from Motorola but, you know that the Android updates come from Google, right?

You have to be running stock. If you've rooted but haven't removed any stock apps or installed a custom rom, you can take the update.

Or altered any stock files. I used NinjaMorph to change my Settings icons and .605 failed to install. I'm sure .621 will also. If root works after .621 I may have to SBF and take it just for the Menu light buttons fix. That has bugged the fudge out of me too.

You're already 2 updates behind...if it has not promted you to to update to .605 then my guess is you wont even be notified of the .621 update until you allow the .602 update to install
I just got the typical alert of "Install update" (I receive this every 12 hours). It is the update to 4.5.602. I suspect I will have to do this first, as you suggested "already 2 updates behind", in order to potentially get the .621 update/invitation. After doing the .602 I'll probably have to wait (days or weeks?) for the .605 update and then wait (days or weeks?) to get .621.

Since the Dx is already at its end of life I'd really like to get the .621 since this will probably be the last update for the Dx. Am I correct that .605 was to work out bugs in .602? I've had my Dx for 10 months and have not experienced any "trouble" after getting Gingerbread 2.3.3 last June or July. A few things: (1) What did 602 do or fix (2) What did .605 fix in .602? I believe there were "keyboard issues" in one of these and then a "radio update" (3) What does .621 offer?

Since .621 is like 5-6 months after .605 is this Motorola's last effort to support the Dx? Or is this Verizon sneaking in to limit what can/cannot be done to the Dx (root, rom's, etc). I'd hate to fix what ain't broke & get these updates, providing I can get all three of them, and then discover problems due to one of the updates. Would I be able to cancel/revert back to .596 if or when any trouble happens? Would I need to root to do this or is this where a Factory Reset would do that? I am NOT rooted at this time, I'm waiting till 1 yr warranty expires in 2-3 months before doing root. Thanks

You'd have to root and create a backup in recovery to revert back to .596.

I suspect if you have issues, a factory reset should fix them.

I'd wait until .621 comes out, then do them all and factory reset after the last one.

Can I please ask those who took the new download to state whether or not you were rooted at the time and if you lost root or not? And if you were rooted, what have you changed on the phone and did you un-do anything prior to updating?

I have not unrooted or defrosted any apps and don't want to jack up the phone.

TYIA!!

Same as my question. I am going to go out on a limb and say you can propably stay rooted and still take the update, but you need to put back any removed bloatware and unfreeze any apps. Whether or not you keep root after the install is a gamble, but before I try it, I want to know if Psouza4's 1 Click Root method works afterwards. I also hear that you're supposed to remove any backup apps, but I am not dumping Titanium Backup to get this, but I'm willing to uninstall it temporarily, however.

as long as you didnt freeze blurupdater then you can be rooted and take the ota, 9times out of 10 you will lose root.

however see if you can sbf back to .605, and then take the OTA, then see if you can root the ota with petes tools

I bit the bullet and unfroze everything. Took the update without issues and lost root. I can't try to re-root until I get home tonight, but I have heard we did NOT lose the ability to root with this update. I doubted that anyway, since the more current Moto phones are still rootable.

EDIT/UPDATE: Someone turned me on to a market app called Voodoo RootKeeper that will allow you to back up your root files, unroot (or hide the fact that you are rooted), take the OTA and then reroot without all the fuss. Too late for me, but a heads-up for the rest of you

You have two choices. See my update above your post for probably the easiest way. Otherwise, and I have yet to try this myself, use the same method as before by hooking the phone to your PC and using the 1-click.

Found this for you, too http://www.droid-life.com/2012/02/20/droid-x-soak-test-rolling-out-now/

Dammit!! I rooted before I even knew about Rootkeeper and all the methods I can find won't re-root because there are remnants of SU and BusyBox still on the phone from prior root attempts that don't play nice. I tried to get rid of them using the methods described, but I can't get it to work. Arrrrghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am NOT rooted at this time, I'm waiting till 1 yr warranty expires in 2-3 months before doing root. Thanks
Based on this from the changelog:

Improved browser security with the Google Security Patch from Android 2.3.6.
I think this may be a security update, foremost. Still, I'm impressed by this update. I had figured .605 was the last update the X would see, so I applaud Moto (and Verizon?) for pushing another one, especially since it claims to fix a lot of the bugs we had complained about for a long time. Yes, we would've liked these bugs to have been fixed a while ago, but better late than never.

It is supposedly available to all now! Personally, I'd wait until there's an SBF file though.
