Motorola Employee Confirms Gingerbread Update for Droid X, Pro and 2


Apparently, some Droid Pro and Droid 2 Global owners have been having issues with corporate sync and have hit up the Motorola Support forums in search of help. It was in these forums that a Motorola employee chimed in to address current issues with Exchange Activesync, commenting that the problem will be fixed with the upcoming Gingerbread update for both these devices. He also went on to say that the Droid X will be included as well.

Seeing how the Droid X software testing program was made available for some, they might be the first to receive the 2.3 update sometime by the end of the second quarter. This will be followed up by the Droid 2/Global and Pro devices. According to Droid-Life, they have word that Motorola has all but completed their Gingerbread builds for all these handsets and is simply waiting on word from Verizon to approve and push them out.

A carrier holding back a firmware update? Haven’t heard that one before (sarcasm). Have any of you guys been experiencing issues with your corporate sync on your Moto handsets? You wont have to wait too much longer for these bugs to be fixed and will even get a taste of Gingerbread in the process.

  1. Oh hey cool so they get a GB update before the X2…

    1. You prefer they set the X2 release back another few months as well as GB for all other moto phones? Will that appease you?

  2. Let me see if I have this correct; a Motorola employee confirms on a forum what Motorola had already stated a few months ago?! Carry on….nothing to see here.

  3. I just spoke to a Tier2 Verizon Support Tech about an unrelated issue on my X and was told that he was running 2.3 on his X testing it from Verizon.  I don’t know if he really got his update from Verizon or if his is the leaked one that everyone else is running though.

    1. No, he rooted his phone and is running the GB leak. Call center agents don’t get to test software. Funny thing is, I wouldn’t be surprised if I knew the guy and I was the one that rooted his phone.

  4. Wish they’d hurry the eff up already. So sick of vzw holding shit up!
    Wonder how long they’ll go before they pull this update..

  5. Verizon don’t tarnish the Droid brand plz.

    1. DROID Charge by Samsung… too late!

  6. Now if only they can forward this GB to my atrix…that’d be boss

  7. Every month the update is next month.  Same thing happened with Froyo.

  8. Testing for the Pro should be fairly easy.. for all 6 owners.

    1. wife has one so the other 5 are on their own. going out on a limb to say it will still be a shit phone even with GB

  9. I know quite a few people who will be happy about this. Thanks for posting, Chris!

  10. They won’t beat the Evo 4g to gingerbread cause sprint rules.

  11. Dudes… there’s been an OFFICIAL version of Gingerbread for the DX for weeks (months?) now. Official, as in you don’t need to be rooted and you flash the update.zip from stock recovery. Stop sitting on your thumbs and waiting for something that’s already out in the wild!

  12. “A carrier holding back a firmware update? Haven’t heard that one before (sarcasm).” 

    Why the sarcasm?  The carrier always has final approval, as they are the ones who actually push the updates.  And they don’t do that until it has passed their own network approval tests.  And they don’t just push when it’s available.  They schedule these things appropriately so there is support staff on hand, etc.  Business as usual.

    1. exactly, if you don’t understand why that is a bad thing then this whole thing is lost on you.
