For now this is just a rumor, but with all the leaks of 2.3 Gingerbread for the Droid X it has to be getting close to finished. We reported back in April that the OTA was starting to roll out, but it looks like that didn’t happen. These things take time.
The image above shows the latest leaked build, but that still is not the official version that will be coming OTA. According to sources Motorola has finished the update for the Droid X and submitted it to Verizon for approval, then it goes OTA to handsets. From what we gather the last few were either denied, or sent back for changes as the April release never happened. The leaks are all over the place, and rooted phones have been running the leaked OTA builds for more than a few weeks now. This isn’t an option for everyone though.
For those that are still waiting, this is only a rumor but could very well be accurate. Our friends at droidlife mention that the latest version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the Droid X has been submitted to Verizon yet again and if approved we could start seeing it roll out OTA (over the air) to handsets starting as early as May 13th. That is next Friday. So either get a leaked build now, or if your stock and not rooted just wait a few more weeks and you should have some tasty Gingerbread soon.[via DroidLife]
