    I installed the original Froyo leak (2.3.9) way back when it came out, and haven't done any upgrading since. As all of these new updates are coming out, I was wondering what the best strategy to get an up to date phone would be? Is there a specific upgrade path I need to follow to get to the latest updates, or can I just go straight to 2.3.320/340 if I install the zip? Thanks in advance for your help!

    I am in the same boat. Mine is also Rooted.

    Frankly, my phone runs pretty damn well right now. Most of the reported updates don't fix problems that I have actually encountered. I really don't want to go through a fiasco like Motorola's last release.

    Yeah, mine still runs well, I just don't want to get so far behind the updates that an upgrade path doesn't exist to Gingerbread or 3.0 if we get it. If you're rooted, you should be able to install some of the ROMs that are based on the newer releases, but I can't help you much with that since I'm not rooted right now.

    Just use the 2.2 SBF file, then let the new OTA upgrade to 2.2.1 run.

    I'm not sure how - but I'm in the same boat too. I had a stock rooted phone. I did the OTA upgrade to 2.2 and then rooted my phone. Not sure how or why, but my version is 2.3.9 MB810.

    Not even sure what it means to "use the 2.2 SBF file" means, or how I got to 2.3.9.

    WTF I just read this on motorola's website:

    "
    • Some users obtained an advanced copy of a Froyo SW upgrade that placed them on SW version 2.3.9. This version of SW cannot be upgraded over the air to 2.3.15.
      • To have your handset upgraded to the final version of DROID X SW upgrade 2.3.15, please contact your local verizon retail store for a walk-in visit to upgrade your handset."

    You've got to be shittin me. I purposely stuck to the officials to prevent having to sbf or do a complete wipe and lose all my apps and settings and the time required to restore them and now this....

    And I need the friggin update because I'm still getting the random soft resets which are a pain in the arse. :mad:

    Same here man.

    I am going by the store when I get off work and if they can't back my stuff up I am going to be pissed. I am downloading Appbrain now just in case they can't save my stuff. At least I may have my apps backed up with Appbrain.

    Keep us posted how that goes at the store. I'm irked about this and don't want to have the hassle in setting up my phone again.. ringtones, settings, apps, ect... if it can be avoided but I reckon I will not be happy until I get the update due to the random resets and occasional audio loss and whatnot.

    So mad I could eat ice cream...

    ok heres what I dont get.... when you say you only stuck with the officials... then theres no way you should be on 2.3.9.... 2.3.9 was never released as an OTA download from Verizon...
    now, if you did an update.zip or something that you installed, that could have brought you to 2.3.9... but I dont see how you could possibly be on 2.3.9 from the OTA
    Moto/Verizon even said from the start that there was "no path" to get from the LEAKED froyo (2.3.9 & 2.3.13) to the official OTA froyo (2.3.15) ...
    There is in fact a path to do it though... Its not that big of a deal to do the SBF honestly... I cant even tell you how many times Ive done it.

    Seriously I don't get it. There must be goblins in my phone because I upgraded to Froyo VIA the OTA. Now way back when, I had originally done the upgrade.zip but long since sbf.d back to 2.1 and I know I was on 2.1 and did get the OTA froyo. I swear it even once said 2.3.15 but now I don't remember.

    did you ever install build props or a ROM or Theme or anything like that? now I'm wondering if you are actually on 2.3.15 but your build props were changed by something you installed to read 2.3.9

    I'm in the same boat with the first leaked Froyo from the summer. My phone has been pretty much garbage the past few weeks. Soft resets, drops 3g if I look at it wrong, stuttering like mad, etc. I'd like to get on the official path and maintain root access. Any help is appreciated, but I plan on catching up this week.

    EDIT: And I'm also on 2.3.9. (Kernel 2.6.32.90gfb07887)

    Please note, installing the SBF does NOT wipe your settings or text messages or installed apps.

    If you are already on FroYo (albeit 2.3.9 instead of 2.3.15), there's no reason why installing the SBF will cause any of your settings to disappear.

    If you are on any version of 2.2 or 2.1 right now, you can use the SBF to put yourself back on the "normal" upgrade path. I'm not positive, but I think if you use the 2.2 SBF over 2.1, you need to do a factory reset. But in any event, you can get back to a normal state with the 2.2 SBF.

    I have Rom Manager V2.5.0.7 (not even sure why I had installed it) - but I never flashed to a different Rom if that makes sense. :confused:

    Ok I just remembered something else I did. I downloaded the enhanced "Build.prop" edit from xda or wherever some time back. How could I go about checking the line (for the version) if it exists in it and fixing it back?

    We need someone with a build.prop from the 2.3.15 to post it up or help us with the version -line edits and I think we will be back in business.

    if you have root explorer
    open it>system>build.prop>5th line down (might be other places, I just know thats where mine is) should say "ro.build.version.incramental=" then whatever version your on...
    Now, I dont know if you can just edit it there and reboot and it works or how else to go about changing it... one of the devs would know better then me there

    whats your kernal version in settings>about phone
