Froyo for Droid X Leaked (Updated)

Droid X owners, you’ll probably be getting a Froyo update OTA sooner rather than later, but if you need it now and want to take matters into your own hands, you can do so.

Keep in mind: this is a likely unfinished, probably still buggy pre-release version of Froyo for the Droid X that leaked out. You may encounter problems. You may brick your device. But you may want to go ahead and flash it anyway, knowing all that.

The build includes Google’s new Voice Actions as well as Flash. You don’t need to be rooted to use this upgrade, but if you are, it’s possible to apply it without losing root access. Just follow the direction in MyDroidWorld’s tutorial.

Boy Genius Report created a short video demo of the 2.2 build:

If you’ve got 2.2 up and running on your Droid X, let us know how it’s running in the comments.

Update: Given Motorola’s track record, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that they have served MyDroidWorld with a cease-and-desist order. MDW’s post, and the various mirrors it links to, seem to still be up right now, but probably not for much longer.
