We all thought they were going to miss the end of summer, but they squeaked by and released at midnight on the very last day of summer.  With that the official Froyo update for the Droid X has arrived, and is available for anyone to download to their phone right now!

To update your phone:
Tap the menu button from any home screen.
Tap Settings.
Scroll all the way down and tap About Phone.
Tap the first option that says System Update.

After that you should be prompted with the screen above asking you download now or later. (Note if you don’t select either it will automatically download after 25 seconds)

Now you can sit back, relax, and let your phone become among the Android gods with all that Froyo goodness!!

So what about all of you guys that were on the leaked version we handed out to you a few weeks back?  Well you have two options.

First:  You can restore your phone to 2.1 using the SBF file and RSDLite program, and our guide found here.  Once rolled back to 2.1, you would have to reinstall all your apps, and configure all your settings.  You could then follow the normal instructions from this post to pull the update down to your phone.

Second: Do nothing.  You guys are running either system version 2.1.9 or 2.1.13 already depending on what leak you installed, but either way there really should be any major differences between the two.  On top of that, if you wait just a week or so I will be we will see the 2.1.13 version put up for us to download as some kind of update installation.  One thing you should note is this leaked version actually blocks you from getting the official OTA.  If you checked your phone and checked the system update option it would tell you your phone is up-to-date already.  So if you’re worried about getting ANY official over the air updates in the future, I would suggest going with option 1 above.

IMPORTANT: Once you have updated to the official OTA 2.2, you will no longer be able to use the 2.1 SBF that’s in the wild (Not the leak, the actual OTA update).  There is more than a good chance it will brick your phone.  So that means if you update to the official 2.2, you are stuck there.  It’s OK though, because we can root it.  Just be warned in case you ever had any reason to want to go back to 2.1 after getting the official update. (Which I really can’t see why anyone would, but just in case)  (via birdman)

Enjoy!
