Motorola Droid X

Motorola DROID X gets a massive bug fix update

It's been many moons since the original Motorola DROID X (released way back in the summer of 2010) got some of the old OTA love. Today Verizon announced a long overdue software update that fixes a host of bugs in the latest official Gingerbread build. DX users can get the update now via the manual method, or just wait for the update message to appear on your phone. And if you're still running stock, you'll definitely want the update.

Motorola DROID X update coming soon

Motorola didn't forget about the 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 gets a CyanogenMod 9 ICS port, despite locked bootloader

The 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.

Motorola Droid X keyboard fixer updated

Owners of the Motorola Droid X, have been experiencing some issues with the keyboard causing the device to freeze and reboot. Motorola seems to be rolling out the .605 update which some users have reported fixes the current issues with the keyboard. However the release of the update has not gone as smoothly as some had hoped with other issues coming up from the update.

Asurion Insurance out of Droid X, Sending Droid X2 for Replacements

Asurion is the handset protection and insurance offered by most smartphone providers like Verizon and T-Mobile, when your phone gets lost or broke they replace it and you only pay a deductible (if you have insurance of course). For high priced smartphones the deductible is around $130 to get your lovely android phone replaced. It looks like they are replacing users of the Droid X with the new and faster Droid X2, that is a nice upgrade if I don't say so myself.

Motorola Droid X Finally gets CyanogenMod 7

Well guys, it's finally here. You can now happily get some of that amazingly tasty Android 2.3 Gingerbread and CyanogenMod 7 on the Droid X thanks to the work of none other than the amazing group of developers we have in this Android world. The main man behind this is @cvpcs and you can follow him on Twitter for news and updates as things progress. Obviously this is a BETA and is still a work in progress but this is exciting news and a big step against Motorola's bootloader issues.
