I was trying to install the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) OTA update available from Verizon for my Droid X.
However the update ALWAYS fails to install. It downloads fine, pops up a message saying that the update (4.5.605.en.US) is about to install and needs a reboot, then reboots when I OK it.
After the reboot, it pops up "Update Status: The Software Update Failed" error box.
My only possible suspicion as far as the reason is that my DroidX is rooted via z4root - I posted a separate question on how to un-root it ( Is there an easy way to un-root Android 2.2 on Droid X rooted via z4root? ) in case that suspicion is true.
UPDATE - I unrooted using latest z4root version. The problem with OTA was NOT fixed.
