Official Gingerbread Software Update: Droid 2 Global by Motorola

http://support.vzw.com/system_update..._2_global.html

YOUR DROID 2 GLOBAL BY MOTOROLA
JUST GOT EVEN BETTER.

Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update, Version.4.5.600.A956.Verizon.en.US,
for your Droid 2 Global by Motorola. This update provides several improvements for your device, as
well as upgrading to the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System (OS).
Droid 2 Global by Motorola
SOFTWARE UPDATE


****Lastest update 10/12/11:
Everything must be squared away now, as the new build of 4.5.608 has been approved and should be made available shortly. Normally when these support documents arrive, the update shows up within a week or so.

Letter from Motorola:
10/12/11:
Hi.

"I want to thank you for providing feedback on the Droid 2 Global Gingerbread upgrade. The feedback from Motorola Feedback Network members helped us identify a serious issue and stop the general distribution of the software before a larger number of owners were impacted. I want to personally thank you for your contribution -- it is just this kind of thing that demonstrates the value of this group.

Now we've put in the needed changes to eliminate this single serious issue and we're ready to resume the rollout. Because you provided feedback before, we will include you in the initial push and ask again for your feedback.

We will not do a private community as we think we understand the strengths and gaps of this software based on our first soak. I will be sending a survey -- maybe two -- to make sure that you are able to update, and to see that the encryption issue that caused us to delay has truly been addressed.

Expect the push of a new load tomorrow. You should see no change in how the device operates overall -- unless you encountered the encryption issue. That should disappear.

I will send out a survey tomorrow -- in the event that you have any update problems, use that to let me know.

Again, many thanks for participating in the Motorola Feedback Network. You are really making a difference.

Regards,

- Matt

Not sure about any of you others out there, but I've been checking every day just to torture myself, and low and behold - I'm downloading the update to my D2G right now.

Taking forever over 3G though...

Re: Official Gingerbread Software Update: Droid 2 Global by Motorola

Anyone who got the update - have you noticed your battery life completely sucking all of a sudden? WTF? I thought this was supposed to HELP the battery issue, not make it worse.
