Word has trickled down by way of the Motorola Feedback Network that a soak test is set to kick off at some point today for a new update to the Motorola ATRIX 2 for AT&T. Other than that, the details of what to expect are unknown. The first conclusion we might jump to is Ice Cream Sandwich, though Motorola’s recently updated upgrade timeline would suggest that the update is still in development. Next to the Atrix 2, the status of the update was marked with a note saying “further plans coming soon.”
If we want to take a glass-is-half-full approach, perhaps the note on the upgrade timeline actually suggests the upgrade is imminent, and this soak test could be the first step in a process that will eventually end with Atrix 2 owners everywhere receiving Android 4.0. We wouldn’t hold our breath on that one just yet. If you are a member of Moto’s Feedback Network and receive the new software, be sure to let us know what you find.
Thanks for signing up for the Atrix 2 software test. Our apologies for the delay in starting this test! The software will begin to be pushed out later this afternoon; however, it may take several hours for all targeted devices to receive the update.
We’re eager to hear your feedback. Please share your experience on the private community provided, and via the survey I will send out after you’ve had some time to work with the software.
To ensure we hear you, please follow these guidelines:
Please post all your feedback in our private community (link below). This also where you’ll find help during the soak.
Please do not call or contact Motorola, AT&T or your carrier support for help during the soak. Those teams are not yet ready to support this software.
I’m not able to check private messages on the forums during soaks, so if you need immediate help that’s not a good route to take. Post in the community instead.
