The folks at ModMyMobile have gotten their hands on something juicy – a Gingerbread update for the Motorola CLIQ 2. It’s surprising, really, but that’s only because we never expect to hear about new versions of Android for many of Motorola’s “less exciting” handsets. But if you’re one of those who weren’t scared away by MOTOBLUR or that actually likes the CLIQ 2, you’ll have something juicy to sink your teeth into. The developers responsible for the leak, Eccentric Vision and dlamber7, have not yet released the ROM because they are looking for ways to root it. There is no word on when Motorola will deliver the update, if at all. Follow development at ModMyMobile and follow the guys on Twitter here. [Thanks, Tatted!]
