    Just wanted to know how many people out there have not got the 2.3 update yet? I'm trying to be patient but it's hard lol. Anyone else out there still waiting and any ideas how long the rollout will take?

    There is no OTA, it was mistakenly leaked to a couple people.

    People that have it here grabbed it from the TBH links (root section).

    Yes you are the last. Verizon said they were going to push it out to the beautiful people first, then go on down the line until they got to the very ugliest of the uglies. And since you're the last one to get it, well...


    Ha ha, hahahaha... just playin my guy. There's no update yet. Just two Motorola RC's. I'm on RC 1. Didn't see any reason to go to RC 2 personally.

    I would say "damn you motorola and verizon!" but considering that only the nexus phones have 2.3 and my previous phone was a samsung fascinate( ummmm 2.1 still), I guess I should consider myself lucky to be a droid x owner with gingerbread here anyday. Thank you verizon for swapping my phones out!!!!

    I must be one of the ugly ones. Anyway, I remember when I was still rockin' the LG Ally. On the forums, everyone was working themselves into a frenzy over when Froyo was coming to the phone. People were in hysterics about its arrival date. So much so, that they forgot to simply enjoy their phones.

    My philosophy is that I'll get it when I get it. Until then, I have a nice phone that I can have fun with.

    I'm enjoying CM7 on my 7" Nook Color ($250). No locked boot loader there.

    What are RCs? I knew people had a leak going around, but I didn't see anything about there being two.

    Colchiro, I've been thinking of buying a Nook just to root and install Android. Are you happy with the Nook converted to a tablet?

    Has Verizon given any official word on what the update version will be?

    Back in the Blackberry days, people would fret over installing the "official" VZW update vs the exact same version leaked online.

    If VZW has announced it and it's available, I'll install. If not I can wait for OTA. Getting very frustrating googling "Droid X Gingerbread" everyday and seeing different news results saying it's out, delayed a month, etc.

    VZW hasn't said jack about releasing GB on the X - no dates, no expectations, nada.

    Very. I hardly spend any time with my X these days. Phiremod rom is great. It's CM7 with a theme and tweaks. OC's from 800 to 1100. :D

    That was a little root/ROM humor there. RC stands for 'release candidate'. When a dev comes up with a new ROM, it's a lot easier to get it as stable as possible, then release it as an RC 1 and let the masses download it. Then when the feedback comes back about all the bugs it has in it, they do as best a job as they can to take care of all those issues, and then release that version as an RC 2, and so on and so forth until they find a release candidate that everyone is pretty happy with, and then they call it the stable version.

    I was simply joking around implying that Verizon was intentionally releasing all these leaks as RC's untl everyone was happy with it...

    ;)

    I notice that you can choose to boot from the SD Card. Does that mean the original Nook OS remains in tact and if you remove the SD Card you can boot into the Nook OS

    Yup, cool, 'eh? That's why it so difficult to brick. Always boots off the sd card first. :D

    It would sure be nice to hear something official from Verizon and Motorola about the two RC's and when an OTA can be expected... that said I suspect it'll be a while till they announce anything.

    If you want Gingerbread on the Droid X, just follow the instructions to get the leaked "OTA" update. I trust the developers and hackers on the various forums a LOT more than I trust Verizon or Motorola when it comes to installing a rom that won't screw with your phone if you're rooted. If you accept one of Motorola and Verizon's OTA updates, do so with extreme caution, it will, as a given, immediately un-root your phone and may prevent you from re-rooting for the immediate future.

    I haven't installed it, I'm just going to wait for the OTA (one day). All I know is that every gingerbread announcement for the X and 2.2 froyo announcement for the Samsung Fascinate has had 0 credibility.

    Lesson learned? Stay away from internet "bloggers." They do nothing but add question marks onto their topics, thus spreading false rumors and just looking to get a few hits on their web sites for ad sponsor money.

    You have much greater faith in Motorola and Verizon than I do. Give me a custom rom ANY day, over an OTA update - in **developers**, I trust.

    Don't hold your breath for a coherent explanation. Both companies are excessively secretive and don't feel the need to bring their subscribers up to date on what's going on.
