Hefty update approved for Droid 3, no Ice Cream Sandwich in sight

Rumours this morning were that Motorola is working on a soak test for a Droid 3 software update. It looks like the team have been working fast as Verizon has just posted the official changelog online. Firmware version 5.7.905 is on the horizon and you might just want to make sure you have plenty of battery charge and a wifi connection for this one as it’s a whopping 224MB in size. One might hope that such a sizeable update might bring some Ice Cream Sandwich goodness but no such luck I’m afraid. The update is primarily bug fixes, security patches, stability improvements as well as tweaks to some apps, call quality and camera performance. You can see the full details in the image above.

Keep your eyes peeled for the OTA arriving and get hitting that ‘check now’ button. Be sure to let us know how the update works out for you in the comments below.

Motorola Droid X software update incoming


Owners of the Motorola Droid X might want to start hitting the ‘check now’ button in the system updates menu as Verizon has just released the change-log for the impending 4.5.621 update.

The OTA update is set to bring a number of bug fixes and systems enhancements to improve on the device’s previous gingerbread update. Highlights include browser improvements, music player stability, improved OTA push as well as the promise of less memory issues and force closes.

It may not be as exciting as an update to ICS however there are certainly some major improvements worth getting your hands on. The update weighs in at 15MB and should only take 5-15 minutes to download.

Check out the change-log as well as a handy guide on how to install in the link below.
