Motorola Droid X-Android 2.2 Froyo Update Leaked


Motorola Droid X

  Good news for Motorola Droid X user. The Motorola Droid X Android 2.2 update has leaked out from what My Droid World report and now available for download and those who want to know why we update it then here it is:-

   Android 2.2 is much faster than Android 2.1 and almost 2 to five times faster than 2.1. There are tons of other features that will be accompanied in android 2.2 update apart from flash 10.1, native internet tethering, and application manager.

  If you are kind of  interested in downloading and updating then here is complete step by step guidelines to manually update Android 2.2 Froyo on Droid X.

Step 1:
  This is a leaked ota upgrade in the update.zip format. This is not a ROM or a port. This will upgrade both your baseband and your system. You will not need to wipe date.

  1. The only way this update will work for you is if your phone is back to stock (you MUST be rooted already if you want to be rooted after the upgrade).
  2. If you have themed your phone you need to convert it back to stock
  3. If you have removed bloatware you must put it all back.

Step 2
Do you want to be rooted?

  1. If no skip to next step.
  2. If yes and already rooted skip to next step.
  3. If not go here and follow these direction. -----> how to root

STOP: YOU MUST VERIFY THAT YOUR SU IS LOCATED IN THE XBIN NOT THE BIN

I suggest using Root Explorer as it is the easiest was to do it: Get it in the MarketPlace

open rootexplorer

navigate to the /system/bin folder and hold down the su file, then select move
navigate to the /system/xbin folder and press the menu button (4 squares)

select edit and then paste

Step 3

So have you gotten back to stock:

If Yes proceed to step 3,

if No then proceed below.

If you don't know which files you need or which ones to put back, you can use the sbf to put your phone back in a stock state. You can go here to get details of how to return to stock via sbf file. ------> Droid SBF

After you return your phone to its stock state go to step 3.

Step 4

Now we need to download froyo for the Droid

Link One - Download Now

Link Two - Download Now

Mirror One - Download Now

Mirror Two - Download Now

Mirror Three - Download Now

Place the file you have downloaded on the root of your sdcard.

Step 5
Reboot your phone in recovery mode:

  1. Hold down the home button and the power button.
  2. When the triangle with the android appears press the search button (far right button)
  3. Select apply sdcard:update.zip
  4. sit back and wait (5 - 10 minutes)
  5. restart your device.

Your phone will now be running 2.2.6 (Froyo Rooted)
