Motorola Droid X Upgrading to Android 2.2 by Early September

Well, fancy that. If you've got a Droid X, or if you've heard about the issues with Exchange 2003 (and ActiveSync, and Exchange in general...), then you know that Motorola's hard at work at the problem. They say they are, anyway. And, despite the fact a new update just released, and didn't feature the fix to the problem, we figured that Android 2.2 would be the update to bring it around. Sure enough, a Motorola rep has just responded to a thread on Motorola's site, about Exchange, and verified the truth.

Motorola Droid X Does Android 2.2 on Video

While the Droid 2 is set to launch with Android 2.2 (whenever that happens), and the original Droid should be getting an OTA update any day this week, we're now just waiting to hear when the Droid X will get its own update. We're still hearing the end of August, which actually only helps that August 12th release date of the Droid 2, but if you want to see what it looks like a little early, go ahead and check out the video below.

Motorola Droid 2 Training Guide Leaked, Still Needs to be Announced

Okay, so we get it. The Droid 2 is real, it exists somewhere outside of our collective imaginations, and it's coming to Verizon. Eventually. Some day, it's coming. And, just as we saw with the official user manual of the device last week, we get to see the full details of the upcoming smartphone well before Verizon has actually officially said anything about the device's existence.

Motorola Droid X Source Code Released

Well, fancy that. Thanks to some keen eyes, and due to someone out there not despising Motorola for putting that eFuse in their device, we got word that Motorola has actually released the source code for the Droid X. Just like the Samsung Captivate for AT&T, this will go along way for the developers out there to start meandering their way through the system, and figuring out what they can do.

Motorola Droid X Commercial Features Hot Spot Functionality

The marketing campaign from Verizon, where the new Motorola Droid X is the focal point, is far from over. In fact, the commercials themselves seem to be getting better and better. This time around, Verizon is focusing on the mobile hot spot feature, showing everyone who will watch just how easy it is to connect your device (and multiple other devices) to the Internet, courtesy of your new Droid phone.

Droid X Consumes 5X More Data Than Other Devices on Verizon

It's only been on the market a short while, but already the Droid X has made quite a few headlines. And not for all good reasons, either. Coming off the heels of those screen mishaps, we're hearing that Verizon's taking a long look at the Droid X, and the fact that users are using upwards of five times more data than other customers using other devices. Verizon's business development executive director implied that the DROID X users are quite fond of using excessive data. It would probably be rough for folks not to use data, especially with that 4.3-inch screen display and apps like BlockBuster and YouTube pre-loaded onto your device.

DROID X rooted; next stop that tricky bootloader

Could it really be this simple?  According to Droid X Forums the new Verizon DROID X has already been rooted, and it's a mighty simple process from the look of it.  Hot on the heals of recovery mode for the smartphone being accessed come root privileges. Of course, just having root access is only one part of the process: right now the bootloader is still locked down tight, and Motorola's use of eFuse tech means that third-party ROMs are still a no-go area right now.  What you should be able to do, though, is get rid of any preloaded bloatware you're not using, and all the other little hacks that root permits.  Now, anyone brave enough to give it a try?
Step 1: Set up ADB Step 2: Push exploid to /sqlite_stmt_journals "adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals" Step 3: type "adb shell" Step 4: type "cd sqlite_stmt_journals" Step 5: type "chmod 755 exploid" Step 6: type "./exploid" and follow directions on screen Step 7: type "rootshell" Step 8: type in password "secretlol" Step 9: your in root! Step 10: mount your sdcard to pc and put Superuser.apk and su in the sdcard Step 11: unmount sdcard Step 12: in adb (make sure your still in root with the # sign) type in: - cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk - cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su - chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

Motorola Droid X: How to Boot Into Recovery

Right now, there's no telling how long it will be if the hacking community (as good as you are, you amazing folks) gets into the innards of our beloved Droid X, or if they will at all, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to boot into recovery anyway, right? Of course not! So, consider this your Public Service Announcement for today. And for the record, doing the steps below won't brick your phone, so don't freak out.

Motorola Droid X Experiencing Screen Issues

If you were able to get your hands on a Motorola Droid X, then hopefully you've been having the time of your life with your new device. Especially considering no one else can get their hands on one right now. Hopefully you aren't a few of the folks out there who have been experiencing some major screen problems. Because, at least according to some Verizon employees around the nation, these issues are pretty common amongst the first batch of Xs released into the world.

Droid X Ad “Eagle Eye” Shows Off Blockbuster App

These advertisements for the Motorola Android devices, at least the ones that matter (not you, DEVOUR), are getting pretty ridiculous. And not in a bad way. We understand that Verizon's pushing out a lot of money for marketing, and that's why we're going to keep seeing these ads that have the same kind of production values as a moderately good Sci-Fi flick on SyFy Channel (maybe that is a bad thing?). Either way, here's another one for your viewing pleasure.
