    Very easy, and well worth it. Follow the steps here:
    http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid-x/154240-how-installing-froyo-2-2-a.html

    Take a look at some of the other threads to see all the improvements, but my only real complaint with the phone when I got it was speaker volume. That is fixed when you update to 2.2

    This is not the "official" update, but I have not personally found any problems with it at all yet, a few other people are having minor problems. If anything is changed when the OTA comes out you will still get the OTA automatically

    I researched this when I had my droid and I was installing a leak to 2.1. There are explanations in the Droid forum somewhere, I forget exactly what it is but it has something to do with the Kernal version that is checked. If there are any changes to the official OTA there will be a different kernal version and your phone will recognize that there is an update. Like I said it has been a while since I researched it myself but if you look around enough you can find the info.

    You know, I never even thought about the premium membership until now. I definitely spend enough time here and this really has been one of the most helpful forums I've ever been to :)

    Man I am loving this update!!!!!

    As far as any concerns that anyone WON'T get the official update, here's how I look at it. How many people out there are downloading this update right now? I know it's not official and I understand hesitations...but with developers these days, there will be a way to restore the old settings and get the official if it doesn't have an automatic push to get the "real" update. Maybe I'm wrong but I doubt it :p lol To each their own though, it's your phone and your decision :cool:

    Unless I find some big problem, which doesn't look likely as I have been playing with my phone almost non stop since I upgraded, I will not download the OTA. I don't want to risk losing root and I seriously doubt there will be much of a difference anyways if any.

    If you are transferring it via PC just put it on the sd card without putting it in a folder.

    If you are on your X, use a file explorer (like files that came pre installed), open you download folder, long press the update.zip file, select cut, move back up out of that folder, push menu, then paste (maybe u have to push more first, I use root explorer so I don't remember the exact layout in files).

    If you never rooted there is nothing to go wrong. If you are rooted you need to do a little research to undo the changes you have made to your system.

    All I have is my X also, so I understand your apprehension. It is really easy though and so worth it.

    If you never rooted you do not need to worry about uninstalling anything, it will still be there after you upgrade.

    That is normal, it takes a while to boot after the update, just give it a little more time

    Normally takes 5-10 min from what I have read, but everytime I upgrade I try not to pay attention because it always seems like it takes Waaaay longer than it actually does. I remember the first time I upgraded my Droid 1 I started getting worried the same way because it was taking so long:)

    Just out of curiosity is your phone plugged in? Sometimes it won't startup if it is plugged in. If not I would do a battery pull and try to boot up again.

    I just noticed your said it was stuck at the moto logo, that's why I thought about the plug. Usually it blows by that and sits on the eye while it boots for a long time.

    Keep me up to date and I'll try to get you through this, if something didn't work right you would have got an error message during install so don't worry about it.
