What do we have here? I just got done mentioning that the Droid 2 got a 2.3 Gingerbread leak, and before I could finish the story I got word about some other even more exciting news. The Motorola Droid X is getting a very similar, if not the same leak. I'm assuming this will be bigger as more people have the Droid X. It is a sweet phone. Anyways lets skip the fun and get right to it.

This is an official build of Android 2.3.3 for the Motorola Droid X and Droid 2. Leaked by someone from Motorola or Verizon we are assuming. This leak is coming to you from the wonderful guys over at TeamBlackHat. Mydroidworld has both these leaks up right now. Also the file was originally only available for those that have the paid TBH app, but it is now available at the forums and I'll post all the download mirrors below.

So yea, instead of showing you cool things like this Gingerbread "Port" for the Droid X/2, I'll just get right down to business here again and post all the instructions and download mirrors for the leaked official build of Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread for the Droid X below. Don't take my word for it, I hear the 2.3.3 MotoBlur is actually really nice and mature feeling. So enjoy it.

Installing Firmware:

1. Download this file from the TBH app or one of the mirrors below
2. Use Bootstrap to get your phone into recovery. Droid X Bootstrap by Koush

4. Install the Firmware using recovery

2. choose zip from sdcard

    Hey i just flashed my phone with the custom rom here and had to do a factory reset, and when i did the same rom came up but it unrooted my phone. Now Z4 root wont root it anymore and i can get back into clowkword recovery. Any suggestions?

    • Chimpi

      The rom isn’t custom. It’s a leaked official rom that is not rooted. You have some choices. You can wait unit this version is rooted or you can run a series of applications to return your phone back to stock version, prior to gingerbread.

      I tried the rom today and experimented with it. There are some great features which can be exploitable, such as the USB tether and mobile hot spot, just to name a few.

      Anyway, to go back you need to READ before questions are asked. Please review this link and follow the instructions. They are successful, I know I did it today.
