Verizon’s Motorola Droid X is due for a software update soon. Before you get too happy about that, know that it isn’t going to make your phone run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In fact, it’s unclear at this point if the Droid X will ever be updated to that version of the OS.
This is a minor update then. It’s version 4.5.621, and Verizon has recently posted the details online. That means that it should start rolling out in a few days (best case scenario), or a week or so (worst case scenario) – if it hasn’t already.
The update fixes an issue that made the Droid X power on without user interaction, it shouldn’t reset while playing music anymore, camera settings will stick after a reboot, Out of memory errors have been reduced, WAV files can now be played from Visual Voicemail, the Wireless Alerting System is now enabled, shortcuts to apps don’t disappear when the apps are moved to the SD card, email works better with the 3G mobile hotspot functionality, duplicate message errors have been reduced, the button background lighting turns off while in the desktop cradle, and browser security is better too.
For the full list of improvements in this update, go through this PDF that Verizon provides. Update instructions are available in this PDF. The gist of it is that the update is around 15 MB in size and will reach your phone over-the-air. When that happens, you’ll be notified, and you can download and install it immediately.
