Apparently there is a 2.2 build of FroYo floating around for the Droid X, and p3Droid over at MyDroidWorld has it! More news as it comes.

Quote from p3Droid:

No this is not a hoax, and your eyes are not deceiving you. This is a screenshot of the DroidX running Android (http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/#) 2.2 (Froyo). Not a lot of information is available but jump into the forum to see what I know and to share what you know

What I know:

** Yes it still has blur
** No it does not have the new froyo homescreen
** It behaves and looks just like current system.

I guess that's good news for people like me who like the current interface and bad for those who don't.

Its a Moto Test build so yea its rooted.

This means, that they are testing possibly the final build before they release it to the public, or they are just starting to test 2.2.

Just curious why everyone doesn't like Blur... not sure what it is exactly (is it how the DX is built around social networking)?

Also, what are the alleged advantages of going to Froyo (from what I could find it's supposed to run A LOT faster), but what else?

If you don't like Blur, you shouldn't have bought the X.

Take a look at the article posted on the new section about CNN looking at the Droid X. One of the topics is the MOTOBLUR and how it is less intrusive than on the Backflip or other devices. I personally love BLUR. Why run facebook, myspace, twitter and more when I can just use the social networking app on BLUR and get updates quickly.

For those of you that don't like blur, simply download and install launcherpro or ADW launcher, both of these will eliminate (doesn't uninstall or overwrite, just turns it off) the blur home screen and buttons, but you can still access all the motorola widgets through it. I'll put some screenshots of my X below so you all can see it looks nothing like the blur overlay, it looks just like my droid did running froyo! And you don't need root for any of this so you're all aware, just go to the market and download.

This is using launcherPro:

If you lok at this pic they have posted its clearly doctored. Only thing changed on it is the Firmware version number, everything else is the same as a stock droid x which I am guessing the system version of 2.2 would not be 604

i didnt buy the x because it had blur. I bought it because it was the most powerful android phone out there. not only that, but all the major android phone manufacturers are putting their own *** *** UI on it (ie HTC Sense)
