    Anyone get OTA 4.5.588??

    CONFIRMED: this is GB, official OTA update (update 4.5.588) but:
    Do not ask when it will be released OTA to the masses, we don't know. It appears this is an early RC or late beta that was probably released for final testing and somehow it ended up on my phone for all to enjoy.
    We do not know when you will start receiving the OTA update OTA

    If you are having problems installing, make sure your file is named "update.zip", not "update.zip.zip", as this seems to be a somewhat common issue

    Fezrock has a thread where he aggregated all the relevent links to common questions here
    Common GB install questions answered

    from EMAD, "I wrote a guide on how to install rooted gingerbread. It's meant to be extremely clear, like its a For Dummies book. http://revengeofthepc.com/2011/dxgbroot/ I have all the downloads (almost) on my server. Not gonna shut it down."

    Root UPDATE: By now you all know its rooted. New thread: Droid X Gingerbread 2.3.3 (4.5.588) Install Patch with Root
    UPDATE: moving these links to top
    Instructions from MikeinRichmond:
    Gingerbread OTA Install Directions

    1KDS has made a great utility that packs the SBF file and a small Linux distro together so everything can do done from a Live CD, nothing to install in Windows, SBF'd back to 100% stock in 7 minutes flat...See about it here:
    Linux solution to your Windows/RSD lite problems

    From Scottpole - Monster 2.3.340 zip to latest gingerbread


    NOTE: In GB, it's both volume up and volume down (not search button) to open recovery and the power button selects, not the camera button.
    Question: How do I get to data wipe now?
    Answer: (thx Mike7143) With the phone off hold the home key and power button. Then the triangle should show. Press both volume up/down keys. You should now be able to use the volume keys to move up and down. Scroll down to something similar to erase/clear data. Select with the power button. When it's done, select the clear cache. When that's done, reboot.

    UPDATE, others are reporting getting it over the air (robrowald, kennydied23). I still hold no responsibility for whatever you do with the file.

    Here are the links -NOTE: the links are dying fast due to takedown notices (I got one). If you can mirror, send a PM with a link and I'll add it here, newest links first

    Instructions (thx MikeinRichmond)
    You need to flash this from stock recovery, not clockwork. Yes, just rename the file to update.zip. Here's how to get into stock recovery:

    Power off, hold the home button then press and hold the power button until the android guy with the triangle shows up. Hit the search key, use the volume buttons to scroll down to apply update from sd card and select it with the camera button, it will start the process, takes about 4 minutes, then reboots. If it Bootloops just pull the battery, do the factory reset procedure again, choose wipe data/factory reset this time, then reboot when it finishes...


    A good article that covers the story very well and separates the facts from the fiction (its the only article where the writer contacted me)
    FOLLOW UP: Motorola Droid X Gingerbread Update Issues Exposed

    Article denying this OTA update even exists yet ... I beg to differ, and they never contacted me

    You are all welcome 'cept for the couple trolls who claimed this was a hoax

    Doesn't say either way. Just "Update (4.5.588.en.US) has been downloaded and is ready to install..." Says it will take up to 5 minutes and the phone will not be available during this time.
    On the phone with Vz now..

    Vz tech support says its a Moto update, and he had no clue as to what it fixes or provides.

    That sounds to me like the official gingerbread ota update is starting to trickle down! I'm on the leaked now and it seems promising.

    Not completely stock, as I've removed/renamed much of the preinstalled bloat, so it won't install till I restore full stock.

    I haven't, but I'm not stock either.
