Mobile phone maker Motorola announced a while ago that it is set to deliver the Android 2.2 Froyo software update to users of its DROID X handset by early September, and the company seems set to stick to that plan.
On Monday, the company updated one post on its support forums, unveiling a few more details on what the new software solution is all about, as well as on what users should do if they want to have the new OS flavor installed on their phones
First of all, Motorola notes that all those interested in getting the official Android 2.2 Froyo on their DROID X devices should not install a leaked ROM, as an upgrade from that solution
won't be made available for them.
In all fairness, we're all familiar with Motorola’s negative reactions towards the leaked or custom made ROMs for its devices, but this might be more than just that, at least this is what the said post
“WARNING: Do NOT load the leaked 2.2 upgrade that has been floating around on the Internets. There is currently no upgrade path from that load to the official 2.2
load that will be released by early September. Unless you have some plan to flash your phone back to the current official load, you could be stuck on the leaked version,” the company notes.
Some might remember that the owners of a HTC EVO 4G were in a similar situation not too long ago, when the Taiwanese maker had to come up with a special Android 2.2 upgrade patch for those who installed a leaked OS version a few days before the official release.
However, there are few chances that Motorola would make a similar move, which means that users should refrain from installing any leaked Froyo ROM
on their DROID X devices prior to the arrival of that official update.
Since September kicks off in a few hours, and since Motorola promised once again that the software update for DROID X would land in early September, it shouldn't be too long before Froyo is available for the handset's owners.
