Motorola Gingerbread updates full of bugs

Back in May, the Droid X received the Gingerbread update so we expected to see updates by now for the Droid 2, Droid 2 Global, Droid Pro, and Droid X2. A couple of weeks ago testing had begun for the Droid 2 Global for Motorola User Group members, but still no official rollout.

Rumor has it that Verizon has rejected all Gingerbread builds from Motorola. The Droid X Gingerbread build is plagued with bugs like constant reboots and data connection drops. This news does not surprise me because I have experienced these bugs with the Droid X, since I own one. From what I am seeing, don’t expect any updates for a while. Let’s just hope that the Droid 3 and Droid Bionic, which will be released with Gingerbread, will not be this buggy. If they are full of the same bugs, we may be seeing delays in them as well.

    Motorola should throw in the towel and just rebrand Cyanogen 7.

    Same old Motorola software problems… They should either deliver AOSP devices or hire some competent developers. The current dev team is way below average, and unfortunately for Motorola, it shows.

    Either rebrand Cyanogen 7, or just give us stock Android. As a Droid X owner with the crappy Gingerbread build, I’m sick of Motorola and Verizon’s crapware screwing up the OS.

    Still just a rumor, I’d be more interested in actual docs.

    In any case, sincere wishes of good luck to motorola :)I like competition

    Any word if Gingerbread for the Atrix will be that bad? At this point I might be regretting buying the Atrix and wish I had my N1 back!

    The data drops are the worst. You don’t know anything is wrong until you try to connect to the net, or send a call or sms and it fails. Only recourse is to reboot the phone to reset the data radio.

    I’m constantly seeing reboots and conncetion loss on my Droid X, but it’s been like that even before Gingerbread. This is a replacement (refurbished) device, and I had the same issues with the original Droid (which I also had replaced for the same reasons).

    I am so done with Motorola; I’m waiting on my mid-year bonus so I can pay Verizon their early cancel fee and jump on the Sensation with T-Mobile.
