Owners of Motorola's Droid X should be expecting an OTA update "soon," which will bring the device's build up to version 4.5.621.MB810. Despite the fact that Verizon's announcement page says "Droid X2" in the title, the update will in fact bring its bevy of enhancements to the original Droid X. Among these are improvements to the OTA process itself, browser security (a la Google's 2.3.6 security patch), and various stability and bug fixes. Verizon's announcement document lists the full set of enhancements, for those interested:

Verizon has also provided a handy instruction sheet for updating your device, though the update is – as yet – still listed as "coming soon." The process should be familiar – just hit settings > About Phone > System Updates > Download.

Verizon advises that the update should only take about 5-15 minutes to download the 15MB update, meaning users won't have to wait too long to bring several handfuls of improvements to their Droid X.

    If the Droid X is getting this update, then the Droid 2 should get it also, since they are the same firmware.

    Yayhoo that will be great

    No doubt this will break root... Any word on being able to re-root afterwards?

  • Shane Slavnik

    I just got my hands on a leak of this on xda, root is going to be more complicated then ever on this phone than it's ever been. Won't see me download it

      I'm very ignorant with this stuff, but trying. How can I avoid downloading it? I rooted my DroidX a while ago, but I think that an update a few months ago broke root.

    Generally if you are rooted you can not take the OTA.

      I'm rooted and the OTA installed earlier this evening with no problem at all. Now - how can I root this version?!

    If anyone has a copy of this update and can send it my way, I'd like to try it out. I looked on XDA, but didn't see anything.

    "Adjusted camera settings will be saved, even after the device is powered down."

    It's about time!

    When I try to manually update, it says, "Your device is up to date!" even though my Droid X hasn't been updated. It clearly shows I'm still using version 4.5.588.MB810. What gives?

    First time I connected to Bluetooth after update I had to go to phone and "Accept Bluetooth Request"  My other (Non-Droid) phone accepted it as always.  Droid then accepts it without asking for subsequent connections.
