Droid X Update May Be Here Today


Don’t take this without a grain of salt (as some of you mistakenly did when we reported about the HTC Droid Incredible’s supposed OTA) but the Motorola Droid X may be getting an OTA sometime today. Version 1.13.604.en.US was pushed out about a week back, but the device had only been released to reviewers, DroidLanding contest winners, and a few lucky customer care preorderers (with only a small percentage of people in those groups combined actually receiving the OTA).


If Droid-Life is correct, that update could be here today (note the emphasis on the world “could”). Not unlike anything before, this rumored window may come and go, so don’t get too happy until you see that nice little pop-up on your device letting you know that an update is ready to be installed.

A user at Android Central‘s forums has found a .pdf file containing the changelog for the update. While it’s nothing too special, the bucket full of bug fixes and other minor enhancements should be enough to make anyone happy that’s been having any of the problems it addresses.

  • Improved battery charging status indicator.
  • Smoother transition for camera and camcorder functions.
  • Redesign of weather widget icons.
  • Faster Exchange ActiveSync® email loading.
  • Streamlined organization of newly downloaded applications.
  • Organized favorite contacts by call count.
  • Updated Bluetooth® connection for enhanced video sharing experience.
  • Coordinated date and time across phone displays.
  • Cleaner looking status bar for GPS symbol.
  • Improved sync capabilities for 3G Mobile Hotspot.
  • Faster Visual Voice Mail loading.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    Then don’t get this phone. It’s like complaining that AT&T sucks when you want the iPhone.
    It is what it is, but the ARE trying hard to roll out updates, obviously. That is very nice.

  3. Hackers will unlock it, no doubt.

    The only update I care about is the one that gives it Froyo.

  4. Something tells me that the X will get Froyo before us original Droid owners will :-\

  5. Am a vzw rep and I can confirm that the update is rolling out today ….

  6. No update for me yet on my Droid X. I really don’t care though. The update is just icing on the cake, I already love this phone. Froyo will be really sweet though, that one im looking forward to.

  7. To the Verizon Man..

    Will this update fix the problem with the contact history saving erased texts?

  8. The X has exceeded all my expectations. It makes the origional Droid look like an antique even though it’s only 8 months old. I’ll believe the update rumors when they hit my X.
