Please Read
The directions are posted in the next post so if you would like please skip there but I hope you will read this.

We the team that tries to bring you the most current Droid firmware for your device do so out of a passion for Droids, Android, and the community. If anyone says anything else about us it is untrue. We love what we do and wish to do so in the future. Having said this, sometimes the leaks have a cost associated with them and while in no way are we asking for donations in order to receive these files, if you would like to support our future work please consider donating. If you chose to not donate or can't, we wish you the full enjoyment of this release.

Please Read Directions Before Proceeding:

Hello, we know that other sites will post this thread on their site. We respectfully request that you link back here, if you do not honor that request we would ask that you include both posts 1 and 2 and a linkback. BUT PLEASE DO NOT JUST POST LINKS TO DOWNLOADS OR MIRRORS

IMPORTANT:

Step 1:
This is a leaked ota upgrade in the update.zip format. This is not a ROM or a port. This will upgrade both your baseband and your system. You will not need to wipe date.
  • The only way this update will work for you is if your phone is back to stock (you MUST be rooted already if you want to be rooted after the upgrade).
  • If you have themed your phone you need to convert it back to stock
  • If you have removed bloatware you must put it all back.


Step 2
Do you want to be rooted?

1) If no skip to next step.
2) If yes and already rooted skip to next step.
3) If not go here and follow these direction. -----> how to root - thanks to Birdman/rootzwiki


STOP: YOU MUST VERIFY THAT YOUR SU IS LOCATED IN THE XBIN NOT THE BIN
I suggest using Root Explorer as it is the easiest was to do it: Get it in the MarketPlace

open rootexplorer
navigate to the /system/bin folder and hold down the su file, then select move
navigate to the /system/xbin folder and press the menu button (4 squares)
select edit and then paste

Step 3
So have you gotten back to stock:

If Yes proceed to step 3,
if No then proceed below.

If you don't know which files you need or which ones to put back, you can use the sbf to put your phone back in a stock state. You can go here to get details of how to return to stock via sbf file. ------> Droid SBF

After you return your phone to its stock state go to step 3.

Step 4

Now we need to download froyo for the Droid

Link One - Download Now

Link Two - Download Now

Mirror One - Download Now

Mirror Two - Download Now

Mirror Three - Download Now

Place the file you have downloaded on the root of your sdcard.

Step 5

Reboot your phone in recovery mode:

1) Hold down the home button and the power button.

2) When the triangle with the android appears press the search button (far right button)

3) Select apply sdcard:update.zip

4) sit back and wait (5 - 10 minutes)

5) restart your device.


Your phone will now be running 2.2.6 (Froyo Rooted)

Thanks goes out to:

Good work none the less guys.

For rooting... how different are the instructions at Droid X from the "DroidXRoot.exe" thing (kind of a 1click root tool)?

i.e. If I rooted with that one click exe on my PC, do I need to unroot and follow the rootzwiki stuff first?
Personal devices... Verizon Droid X, HTC Inc
for full list see -> http://mark.cdmaforu...m/equipment.htm <-

If you ran Koush' bootstrapper app, you are SOL. Will not work due to modified logwrapper file.

Should be a way to roll back, right?
