Do you remember the Android 2.2 Froyo update that was leaked for the Motorola Droid X recently? Well, it turns out Motorola are not too happy about it, and have warned users who attempt to update.

As reported from BGR, Motorola has posted a pretty frank message on their official forums, specifically focusing on the leaked Froyo update for the Droid X which is currently available to download online.

Here is what Motorola had to say on the matter: ”Do NOT load the leaked 2.2 upgrade that has been floating around on the Internets. There is currently no upgrade path from that load to the official 2.2 load that will be released by early September.”

They also state that unless you know how to flash your device, you could be stuck on the leaked version permanently. Are you starting to get worried or not?

The fun will really start when Motorola’s official update does come out in September. We’ll probably start to see all kinds of flash methods that will become available.

Did you upgrade to the leaked version? If so, let us know your thoughts on this.

    I upgraded but that froyo release was not so good so i flashed back to 2.1 and am waiting for the ota update to come :) hope all works out well

    I’ve been on it since it was made available and I just recently put on birdmans flyx and my phone works better than ever so I really don’t care about the official one cause I doubt it will add anything real important but I can always wait for the next rom!

    What is the big deal?…. Cant you people just wait? The phone works fine with the 2.1!!! I think you are all obsessed with a stupid update…….. :-)

    Actually the phone doesn't work "fine" with 2.1

    The phone lags, due to the way the files are executed.
    Too many apps are left running in the background; currently 3rd party apps must be used to correct that.
    Exchange is messed up; that's important for people like me who use corporate email.
    Batter life will reportedly be improved. although the DX seems better than some others. I purchased an extended life battery already.

    Froyo 2.2 is supposed to fix those issues. Really though, why does it seem phones and such are released before the bugs are worked out?
