Motorola is contacting members of their Feedback Network in search of testers for a new software update to none other than the Droid X. Given its age and the release of the Droid X2 last year, there didn’t seem to be much hope for further support of the 4.3-inch phone that set the bar pretty high for every Droid to follow, but Moto and Verizon aren’t done yet. Before owners nearing the end of their two-year contract get too excited, it isn’t likely that the Droid X will be getting Ice Cream Sandwich any time soon. Expect bug fixes and other enhancements to the device’s Gingerbread build.

Update: Verizon has posted to official changelog to the update, which will bring the Droid X to software version 4.5.621. As we first postulated, bug fixes are the main goal here. You can see the full list of what to expect over at Verizon’s support site.

[Thanks, tipster!]
