DROID X for those concerned. Apparently they launched a beta "soak test" software update late last week for a few forum members to test out. Today it is finally official as Verizon is giving us all the update details. Currently listed as coming soon we expect the DROID X update to land this week, more details and change log available below.
DROID X remains one of the most popular models of Android phones on Verizon, and no one who bought one on a contract back in 2010 (like me!) is eligible for an upgrade any time soon. So it's great to see an active modding community around this solid phone, despite Motorola and Verizon's continued stance on a locked bootloader. The latest project from RootzWiki for the venerable DX is a port of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
original Droid X. This bootstrap app was found in what might be a random chinese forum but users are reporting it working great and some have already made backups of the stock rom and are ready to try new things.
Droid2 and the Droid X were locked down pretty tight and unable to enjoy the wonderful things in Android like CM7. Recent breakthroughs have allowed CM7 to boot successfully on the Droid X and the latest news is the same magic will be going down for the Droid 2 and it will be officially merged into CyanogenMod soon.

Netflix has just updated their app in the Android Market to support the Motorola Droid X running 2.3 Gingerbread. When Netflix was updated back in May and removed the device compatibility check it was working on many devices including the leaked 2.3 for the Droid X. Now the latest update should make it work for all Motorola Droid X users and possibly others.
starting to be rolled out to a small number of lucky Droid X owners, but now the update has been made available for those of you who don't like to wait. Naturally you'll have to be rooted with a recovery from which you can flash the upgrade, so if you're not you'll have wait for Verizon to push the update OTA.
we mentioned that the Droid X would be starting the Android Gingerbread 2.3 update Friday the 27th. It looks as if this time the date given has actually came true, sort of. According to sources the OTA update for 2.3.3 Gingerbread is rolling out in what Verizon is calling a "soak test" or a test run to put it plainly. It looks as if a few users are starting to see the updates on their devices.
