Question [Q] Gingerbread update is here!

Info Can be found here, http://support.vzw.com/system_update..._2_global.html

Confirmed on Verizons Twitter feed that the Gingerbread release has been rolling out since the end of August.

Do a 'checkin' (*#*#checkin#*#*) on your phone then Settings > About Phone > System updates. Keep trying if none is found.

System Version: 4.5.607.A956.Verizon.en.US

Android Version: 2.3.3

Baseband Version: N_01.79.00R

Kernal Version: 2.6.32.9-gb092e69 w36084@ca25rhe92 #2

Build Numbe: 4.5.1_57_D2G-37

ERI Version: 5

PRL Version: 52341

3G signal has been improved with this radio and speeds are more constant and faster.

You will have to go back to stock before you will even be notified of the update. When I had my droid 1 it took a week after the release before I received the update to 2.2

Default Anyone updated yet

I have tried on 2 stock roms (rooted) and neither say there is an update available - before going back to stock via the 11 step process, has anyone actually updated their device yet - or am I just not patient enough and the update is actually rolling out slowly and not available manually? Any help is appreciated, since I would hate to blast phones to get the update (i would rather wait on a rooted version, but would love to get a better experience than the current ROM provides!)

I too would rather wait for a rooted version but I'm too excited to use Gingerbread. I will roll back my rom to the original tonight via Moto RSD Lite and then try the update, I will report back if all goes well... or not, hehe.
