WARNING! Do not load any unofficial Android 2.2 firmware upgrades, unless it's from Motorola. Otherwise, you will be stuck in the leaked version and you might not have a chance for some goodies. Are you willing to take the risk?

Support Forum posted a warning about users who load the leaked 2.2 upgrade that has been roaming around the web. According to the forum, there is no official path for the load that will be included in the upcoming upgrade this coming September. Do not be lured about the increased performance it can give. Otherwise, you might be stuck on the leaked version. The new Droid X has already a new software update, and it will give your phones some great benefits. In an effort to spare the owners of Droid X from the pain that other people undergo, made a list of items that they are working on.

1. Owners who can’t setup their Exchange Accounts, or who can get their e-mail but don’t get any notifications, on their Xs will be addressed in the 2.2 update set for early September.

2. Some users find that using Smart Profile will make their phone lose its voice. Setting it up on vibrator mode, will no longer make their phone ring anymore. If you are encountering this problem, Motorola listed a simple recovery steps to reset your settings.

3. The company is also making a change for deleting text messages, since many users gave their feedback that such feature is not a nice experience.

4. They are also planning to increase the Droid X’s volume in an upcoming software update.

5. Motorola already confirmed that VPN encryption is not working. However, PPTP encryption will be enabled in the software update, and they are working on fixes for other VPN versions

6. Motorola and already released a statement about flickering screens. If you are experiencing such problem, check out if your phone matches the criteria for an exchange.

7. Some owners reported that their camera shutter freezes and can only see black screen. If you are one of them, you might want to check if your phone is qualified for a swap.

It seems that Motorola is not happy that anyone would hack and tweak one of their handsets. That’s why it is not a surprise that they are going to cut the owners with leaked 2.2 upgrade from their official software improvement. But isn’t it the risk that one really takes? Being stuck with a leaked version of a firmware that promises unlimited features? What do you think?
