Motorola Droid X And Droid 2 Android 2.3 Gingerbread Firmware Leaks

A few days ago, rumors were floating around on the Internet that Motorola will soon be releasing the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Droid X and the Droid 2.

Apparently, the update was then delayed because Verizon did not approve the update for some reason. Now, the folks over at MyDroidWorld have got their hands on a leaked Android 2.3 Gingerbread SBF (Firmware file of Motorola phones) files for the Droid X and the Droid 2.

As of now, the firmware is not rooted. Droid X and Droid 2 owners need to wait for some more time until someone manages to get root access.

Beside the bump in the Android version and the goodies brought by it, the update also incorporates a new version of MotoBLUR. Surprisingly, the new version is much better, functionality and performance wise, than the current BLUR version found in the D2 and DX.

The folks over at Droid-Life ran Quadrant on the Droid X and scored a commendable 1796 points! Yes, that’s more than the Nexus S score.

Both the firmwares are pretty good and bug-free. Droid 2 owners should head over to this thread, while Droid X owners should go here, to download and install Android 2.3 Gingerbread on their handset.
