    That is exactly why I am waiting for the official version. Who knows...some of the bugs that peeps are experiencing may be the very thing they are working on before the official release. Patience we must have...rewards we may reap
    Don't just take a trip...go on a journey

    Anyone know if there will be an effort to root 2.2 on the Droid X or now that there's the leaked version that keeps root if you had it before there won't be anyone trying? Or does the root of 2.2 on Droid 2 work?

    My "guess" is that if you copy su to xbin you can root it once it finishes upgrading just like the leaked version.

    I believe Birdman has said that the 2.2 will be able to be rooted with some tweaks to his current 2.1 exploit. He is the one who discovered an exploit to root 2.1.

    BTW - I haven't had issues with the leaked version and it's been a nice improvement, but my phone wasn't rooted. 90% of the people reporting issues have their phone rooted, so their configuration will be MUCH more complex than mine.

    Moto/Verizon are going to focus almost all testing resources on stock/unrooted phones, so bugs on rooted phones are primarily going to be found by the user community, and I expect that will continue after the OTA release.

    I run lots of apps, make extensive use of the nav features, browser, YouTube and often run my battery out before the end of the day (nav chews batteries with the constant GPS pinging/map updates, and I tend to plug it in while driving).

    The 2.2 leaked update has refined the phone and I suspect the OTA version will be very close.

    Developers HATE making changes in the last X weeks before release. Every change has potential to fix one bug, but create a new one. Regression testing can be extremely painful. I won't be surprised by a change or two, because it's impossible to know if the leaked version is an early or later release candidate** (see below).

    A some point a release candidate become the official release. Sometimes something is fixed/changed and the next release candidate becomes the "official" release.

    I also won't be surprised if the leaked is the same as the final, and they will issue additional OTA updates a month or two after 2.2 official goes live.

    (Just like there was the OTA for 2.1 around two weeks after DX was released. It was probably created before the DX released, but was still testing until they released it.)

    ** Release Candidate:

    When developers think a build is good enough to go live, they build a package (all the update files), call it "release candidate 1" and send it to testing. IF it passes with few enough bugs, they will make it the official release. If there are show stoppers, they fix X bugs, create a new release candidate (x), and send to testing.

    That process repeats X times (usually 2-5) until a build is stable enough for the real world. NOT zero bugs, but few enough that they believe they can live with the tech support load it will create.

    After they have the "official" release, they continue working to fix known bugs, so by the time it's installed across the user base (a month later, or more), they usually have a set of bugs fixed internally, but wait until they can't stand it and then send out another OTA with a package of fixes.

    The goal is to minimize the update packages, since each one creates potential for additional side effect bugs, conflicts with existing apps, etc.

    Very complex process, and each package goes through an amazing amount of testing, but they still can't find all the bugs.

    I remember all the rumors about 2.2 on the D1, and it just started rolling out this month. I didn't bother wasting any time and updated to the leak.
