Droid X to receive update… no not Gingerbread

| December 6, 2010 | Reply

So far today it has been all about the Nexus S and Gingerbread… So what about us Droid X users? Well it looks like Motorola has a little software update getting ready to get pushed out to us Droid X users. unfortunately this is not the Gingerbread update we here at Gizmo Ninja have been waiting for but a nice update non the less with some goodies thrown in. Version number is 2.3.340 and Android version is 2.2.1. Also in the change notes from Verizon amongst numerous stability enhancements they have thrown in Madden 2011!! This much-anticipated game to launch with the Droid X update! From what it looks like it may just be a trial version similar to the Need for Speed that comes pre loaded on the Droid X today. File size is around 79MB which means a lot of improvements under the hood like new additional Exchange support! Make sure to drop us a comment below if your Droid X has gotten the update and your thoughts of Madden 2011 to be included!

Not to try and steal away the Android 2.3 spotlight today, but the Droid X is about to receive a pretty major update.  Why so major?  It will include Madden 2011!  We’ve all been waiting impatiently for Madden to drop on Android and it looks like the DX and Verizon might have exclusivity to it.  Crazy right?

Update 11:33AM:  We’re hearing now that this might not be the full version of Madden for Android.  Could be bloatware that gives you a couple of minutes of playing time before you have to buy the full version.

The total size of the update is around 79MB which means it’s got a lot packed into it.  Business users will find additional Exchange support, Froyo will be more stabile and then a whole bunch of other bugs have been fixed.  (Click on the document above to see all of the updates.)

After updating, your system version will be 2.3.340 which is NOT Gingerbread.  System versions are much different than Android versions.

Update 11:46AM:  I know that many of you have upgraded to the 2.3.20 leak and we will surely have a way for you all to upgrade to this.  We’ll have more soon.

We’re still waiting to hear when it will be available for download.
