Froyo for Droid X Leaked!!! Here is the way to get it got yourself!!!

Hey Droid X owners, 

You'll probably be getting a Froyo update OTA sooner rather than later, but if you need it now and want to take matters into your own hands, you can do so.

Keep in mind: this is a likely unfinished, probably still buggy pre-release version of Froyo for the Droid X that leaked out. You may encounter problems. You may brick your device. But you may want to go ahead and flash it anyway, knowing all that.

Please Read Directions Before Proceeding:


Step 1:

This is a leaked ota upgrade in the format. This is not a ROM or a port. This will upgrade both your baseband and your system. You will not need to wipe date.

The only way this update will work for you is if your phone is back to stock (you MUST be rooted already if you want to be rooted after the upgrade).

If you have themed your phone you need to convert it back to stock

If you have removed bloatware you must put it all back.

Step 2:

Do you want to be rooted?

1) If no skip to next step.

2) If yes and already rooted skip to next step.

3) If not go here and follow these direction. -----> how to root - thanks to Rootzwiki


I suggest using Root Explorer as it is the easiest was to do it: Get it in the MarketPlace

Open rootexplorer

Navigate to the /system/bin folder and hold down the su file, then select move
Navigate to the /system/xbin folder and press the menu button (4 squares)

Select edit and then paste

Step 3:

So have you gotten back to stock:

If Yes proceed to step 3, 

If No then proceed below.

If you don't know which files you need or which ones to put back, you can use the sbf to put your phone back in a stock state. You can go here to get details of how to return to stock via sbf file. ------> Droid SBF

After you return your phone to its stock state go to step 3.

Step 4:

Now we need to download froyo for the Droid

Link One - Download now

Link Two - Download Now

Mirror One - Download Now

Mirror Two - Download Now

Mirror Three - Download Now

Place the file you have downloaded on the root of your SD card.

Step 5:

Reboot your phone in recovery mode:

1) Hold down the home button and the power button.

2) When the triangle with the android appears press the search button (far right button)

3) Select apply

4) Sit back and wait (5 - 10 minutes)

5) Restart your device.

Your phone will now be running 2.2.6 (Froyo Rooted)

Thanks to MyDroidWorld for the release~
