Motorola Milestone 2 (DROID 2 For Not-America) Finally Receives Gingerbread

It’s been a long time coming, and quite frankly it’s rather sad how long it took for this to come, but the Motorola Milestone 2 has finally received its Gingerbread upgrade. European users of the device have been complaining to Motorola regarding the lack of updates and it seems this book can finally be closed. Things will begin tomorrow and will go out in a staggered process (meaning don’t get too upset if you can’t download it right away when you wake up).  We’re glad that’s over. And just to help save you from heartbreak in the future, we’d advise against waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich – something tells us it’s not going to happen. [Motorola Facebook via Droid Dog]

      Lol, came in here just to say this.  I don’t know why anyone would PS the Motoblur interface from the Droid/Milestone 2 onto the original Droid..?

        Ha, yeah I came in here to say it too. Looks like you guys got here first.

    I think you’ve got the title wrong, in regard to model names for the US market vs everywhere else..

    Shouldn’t that be “Droid 2 (Motorola Milestone 2 for Not-America)”…etc.?

      I’m referring to the international version of the DROID 2. That’s the one thats getting the update, hence why I put (DROID 2 for Not-America), meaning it’s basically everyone else’s version of the DROID 2.

      I thought it was wrong at first too but, after re-reading it, it is correct.

    all I know is I received GB on my American Droid 2 and I wish I had not. It totally nerfed the phone. I get random restarts 4 or 5 times a week. It seems battery life has taken a hit as well. Regardless, I am looking forward to getting rid of this phone asap. Bring on Galaxy Nexus, if it’s ever released.

      My sister said that about her D2G. I wouldn’t know though, I haven’t been on stock (on my D2) in so long that I have no idea how the OTA performance is.

      I do know though, that the GB kernel that came with the OTA did wonders for battery life of custom ROMs. Battery life on the GB kernel is much better than the Froyo kernel.

    Europeans should avoid Motorola. North Americans should avoid Samsung.

    Problem solved.
