It appears that Sprint has a bad case of the “administrative issues”… wait, what? We’re not entirely sure what kind of “administrative issues” would prevent Sprint from rolling out an update that customers have been screaming their heads off for (and rightfully so) for weeks. The worst part? They have issued no timeline for when the update will actually hit the airwaves.
For those who are experiencing difficulties with Droid X devices since the Froyo update was pushed out, fixes are on the way.
A forum moderator on the Motorola website confirmed that the engineering team has identified a solution to fix the issues Droid X users are experiencing with the new Froyo update. These issues include incorrect SMS text order, severe battery drain, and random rebooting.
There is no timeline on when the new software upgrade will be available, but Motorola engineers are already working on it.
Remember back in June when the EVO 4G first came out, and there was that big to-do about the phone’s FPS being capped at 30? HTC claimed this was due to the need to support HDMI-out, and that they were unable to conjure up a software update to unleash the full power of the device (even though the folks over at XDA-Developers were pretty quick to nip that one in the bud).
Well, 3 months later, and HTC has decided that EVO owners have suffered long enough. The latest firmware update being rolled out by Sprint has in fact removed the framerate cap from the EVO, so if you’re an EVO owner and have received your update, you’re good to go! Leave us a comment below and let us know your results.
There’s been a lot of talk about this Droid X update that was supposed to launch today…and it did! If you’re a Droid X owner, you may have already seen the popup prompting for your update…if you didn’t, hit your menu, choose “settings”, and under “about phone” you should see the option for system updates, so you should be able to manually pull it.
