Warning! No Froyo OTA For Users With Leaked 2.2

So here comes Motorola once again with the scare tactics, but in all reality they have some truth behind it all.  As you can see, the forum community manager for Motorola, Matt, updated his initial post in the Droid X support threads to include the following first paragraph (also pictured above.)

WARNING: 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. Unless you have some plan to flash your phone back to the current official load, you could be stuck on the leaked version.

So with that, if you want to be able to get the official update from Verizon via over the air then you’ll probably want to flash your device back to the stock 2.1 build using RSD lite and our guide(s) here.

One would think however that once the final OTA build is delivered that someone in the community will snag it up and package it into either an update.zip or rom inside of rom manager for us to download.  So eve if you don’t want to take the leap into RSD lite, you should still be able to find a way to get the update, just probably not the first week it’s rolled out.

Not to mention we don’t know if there is really any differences (if any at all) between what was leaked and the final build, although I would have to guess the leaked copy wasn’t a final build or it would’ve been pushed out already.
