    Default Manually update your Cliq to Android 2.1

    Hey guys! Was doing some digging around since the 2.1 update went out to testers today, and stumbled across this.

    CLIQ Software Support - Motorola USA

    It's the official page sent to the testers to update to the new 2.1 Blur version for the Cliq. The download link in step 2 seems to be working just fine

    On the off chance that this was made public by mistake, I mirrored everything. Call me cautious, call me paranoid, but better safe than sorry.

    You can download the update itself right here:
    Blur_Version.2.1.5.MB200.T-Mobile.en.US.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    You can download Moto's official instructions, saved as pdf files right here:
    manual_update_cliq.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    For sure, try the official site (first link) before you use the mirrors. Now go get your Android 2.1 that's been forever in the making!

    EDIT -- The files I had mirrored are no more. Motorola had my 4Shared account closed. Hopefully someone else has a copy of them for those in need.

    Kris,
    was there any problem with it seeing the update? I keep getting the "your device is up to date" window.

    If getting it from the hosting site you have to rename the zip file adding in all the dots(.) that the hosting site stripped out. I'm installing it now but it is rebooting a lot, I mean I think its up to 30 times now, I'm afraid its just in a loop but too nervous to take the battery out.

    If your stuck in a boot loop after updating the Cliq to 2.1

    -Shut off the phone, (battery pull if you have to)
    -Hold the POWER and CAMERA buttons simultaneously until the green bootloader text appears
    -Hit VOLUME-DOWN
    -Wait for the /!\ triangle to appear.
    -Open the keyboard and hit ALT+L
    -Select the option to Wipe
    -Once that’s finished, reboot the phone.

    Default Alright World!

    I got my brothers to update to 2.1. Was not easy. I pulled the battery twice. Wiped the phone from recovery mode (Camera+Power). And then rebooted again, and it came on to 2.1. I do not have a strategic process, but it eventually worked! There is hope in the world!

    I am actually a trial user, chosen by Motorola, but the download page was yanked before I was able to download it. Did some work and found this link. Thank you.

    It seems that this update has a booting up problem, seems the majority of users, including me, were getting stuck in the Motoblur > Stick together > repeat loop after the install. It seems you have to wipe the phone, in most cases. I had to too. Here's how, all your texts and apps/games will be wiped.


    The following worked for me:
    Remove battery
    insert battery,
    press and hold Camera + power/lock buttons until prompted to release
    Press volume down
    WAIT until you see yellow ! error sign
    Press ALT+L and ALT+W

    You should see a reboot, the installer again, one or two more reboots, and then motoblur login screen.

    Yeah, because the update removed T Mobile's Mobile Backup app, we should be able to get them by logging into my-tmobile.com though

    I followed the instructions in this thread and successfully updated my Cliq to 2.1. No problems. I did not have to wipe the phone, everything worked OK the first time through.

    How did you do it? Because I have added all the friggen (.) and still it tells me that my phone is up to date when I check it, also i tried doing it by pressing the Power + Camera button, and so on but when i get to alt+s it tells me that file is not found. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
