Official waiting for Gingerbread thread

My guess is December, this is pure speculation on my part. I am in no way qualified to make this statement.

I did just stubmle across this link though

If you want to get an alert whenever we have official news about updates to the Motorola Droid X2 from Verizon, click "receive email notifications" in the right hand navigation. This thread will remain locked so you won't have to read comments from other posters.

When I have news I will unlock the thread and post -- and you'll get a notification.

Questions about update timing in other threads will go unanswered. Sorry about that, but until I have approval, I won't have anything to say. And when I do, I'll post it here.


***It is also worth mentioning the Droid X Gingerbread update will NOT work on the Droid X2. Do not attempt, it will brick your phone. They are two very different animals. When you do attempt to flash either wait for the OTA update or verify the files are coming from a trusted source. ***

I think you are misunderstanding the point of this thread or the point of discussion boards in general. Organized information is power. This is the place to discuss Gingerbread on the Droid X2 and when it is going to happen.

Please feel free to make positive contributions.

No problem. Awesome, I am glad to hear xda is on the case. Hopefully this phone will still share the same bootloader as the original X.

I am still a new android user so I haven't used 2.3, but this site details the differences nicely.

Difference Between Android 2.2 (Froyo) and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) | Difference Between | Android 2.2 (Froyo) vs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

By the sounds of it it seems like there are a lot of "under the hood" type improvements (that is to say non UI changes) which I would welcome greatly. Anything to maximize battery life and make this beast of a phone more powerful would be icing on the cake. Improved copy and paste also sounds great.

But then Motorola/Verizon will also have their own changes so who knows what that will bring. I still don't know all the differences between the base android OS and motorola's "blur" so I still have a lot to learn with the UI.

Re: Official waiting for Gingerbread thread

I think December would be too late... The Droid X already has it, so I'm thinking by August (maybe September) we should have it for Droid X2. The reason why I say December is too late is because Ice Cream Sandwich will be out by then and every new dual-core handset from here on out will be launched with at least Gingerbread.
