If you own a rooted Motorola Droid X chances are you have an early build of Android 2.3 Gingerbread installed, well today we can confirm that Gingerbread is now being rolled out officially and should hit your smartphone soon (if it hasn’t already).
This news was reported by Engadget recently following dozens of tip offs, according to Verizon Wireless the update brings your Droid X to software version 4.5.596 you can see a full breakdown of changes here, lots of which are similar to what we spoke about earlier for the Droid Pro.
Some of the changes we are most excited about include the new download manager app, a new look UI (thanks to new widgets, icons and screens), the ability to group apps and finally a way to monitor what apps are running in the background and how much memory they are using.
If you check out the full changelog you can see some less noticeable changes which have been made, as with most updates there are probably plenty of security improvements included to.
Some of you have probably already received the Gingerbread update, if you have not received the update notifications simply go to Menu, Settings, About Phone and then choose System Updates, your Droid X will then check for updates and Android 2.3 should then show, simply click download and the update will download and install itself.
Did the update go smoothly for you?
