    At least we're getting support by Motorola so soon. :) Next update will hopefully include Froyo!

    Thanks NKT! Good to know...hope the "better battery indicator" causes one of the LEDs to light-up whilst charging--that's pretty much my only complaint so far.

    Are you an "X"-er now with a (newly-rooted) Eris in your back pocket too? :)

    (or perhaps you are an phone omnivore...:D)

    According to one of the tester on Howard Forums the .604 update does fix the text in the browser. I guess we will have to wait and see next week.

    When entering text into a forum entry box - like this one for instance - if you screw up it's damn near impossible to put the cursor where you want it to edit the text.

    Complete pain in the @ss.

    At least, I think that's what it might be.

    This is from VZW.

    Yes, this will be over the air. It will be a phased OTA so don't fret if the 19th passes and you haven't received the update.

    NKT is correct, the update should be over the air. I would expect most to get the update the first day or so since there are not as many Droid X's out in circulation as there are Droids. But it is also possible that they may push it out to a few users, make sure there are no negative side effects and then push it out to the others a couple days later. Time will tell.

    I know an update is coming. I'm just not seeing the 7/19 in the .pdf or the support website is all.

    No it was for some people complaining about the text appearing jagged

    Ever think they may be waiting to put it on there? It's not going to be there the minute it was leaked or found on the web

    I'm trying to make sure that I'm not going blind or something because I can't find any mentions of 7/19. Besides, this isn't exactly leaked info when it's posted on the official X support website on VZW. *shrug*

    Then dont worry about it. You can just go on how you are and then if you do receive the OTA you will get it. Its not that major of an ota like froyo will be so no need sitting waiting for it
