Motorola released the Froyo update for the Droid a couple of weeks ago. Next in line for the Froyo update is the Motorola Droid X. The Droid X ships with Android 2.1 on board, and is expected to get the Froyo update by early September. However, users who can’t wait until early-September should rejoice! A leaked version of Android 2.2 for the Droid X has surfaced on the Internet.
Users who are interested in trying this leaked Android 2.2 update should make sure that their phone is rooted. If your Droid X is already rooted, then the method is a relatively simple one.

Keep in mind that going back to Android 2.1 after this update is a pretty complex method. Here is the step-by-step process on how to update your Droid X to Android 2.2.
