That
update to the Droid X that we told you about


last week has been pushed out to a few people today. For everybody left waiting, you can download a copy of the update form our forums, thanks to Joe92t.

Flashing is simple.
Download the file from the Android Central Forums


and copy it to your SD card. Then turn your phone off. Wait a second. Hold the power and home buttons until you see the exclamation point. Let go, and then press the search button. Then choose "apply sdcard:update.zip" to apply the update. Reboot, and you're good to go!

No, it's not Gingerbread -- though we fully expect the Droid X to get Gingerbread. What things update brings is a slew of fixes and improvements. Here are the big strokes:


  • Preloaded Madden NFL football game.
  • Preloaded Adobe Flash Player 10.1.
  • Preloaded MyVerizon application (v5).
  • Added Data Widget to home panel.
  • Improved Android OS Froyo stability
  • Fixes to Exchange Activesync
  • Fixes to Visual Voicemail
The EAS fixes actually are the biggest things, we think, in Version 2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.USIBP_C_01.09.07P. There are a slew of other fixes as well; you can
find them all in this PDF


. And once you've updated, be sure to
join the discussion about the update in this forum thread


. Thanks, Joe92t!

Note: Yes, you must have a stock Droid X to manually update like this.
