    Per the private site:

    Just want to address a few questions that I expect some owners to have, and provide a draft (not final) of the release notes.


    Can I get the update if I'm rooted? Probably not. Most of the time updates pass by rooted devices. You can try restoring to stock to get the update. (Don't ask us how -- if you can root, you probably know where to find the answers. Posting information about root here is against site rules.) However, even devices that appear to be restored may not accept the update.
    Will this update address existing Exchange issues? There are some Exchange improvements in the update, including some that address intermittent push for email. More are on the way, and we'll be watching to see what improvements result.
    Is this a confidential Motorola Feedback Network project? Yes -- this community is private, and our interactions should be confidential. Please do not mention any aspect of this outside this private community or surveys we provide. Thanks.
    Are we the only group testing this software? No. This software is in full release. But by gathering your feedback we hope to find out early if there is anything in the software that didn't show up when we tested it with dozens and hundreds, that will show when thousands get it. It also helps us verify that the expected changes happened. You are the only group providing direct feedback, so your input is important.
    How long will we be involved in this test? Probably a week or less, but there are likely more tests to come.

    Same here...I think it may have to do with some of the stock .apk's that I renamed to 'bak' (like cityID, DLNA, cmas, etc). I'm going to rename them back to .apk and hope the install works.

    While you do that, would it be possible for you, to zip the following packages for me? my Titanium Backup doesn't work...

    City ID 1.0.30
    Backup Assistant 2.2
    Backup Assistant 1.0
    Yahoo Contacts 2.2
    Help Center 2.2
    Emergency Alert 1.0.0
    My Verizon Mobile 5.0

    Would be highly appreciated

    My update worked after renaming the apps to .apk. I backed up the entire app folder to a zip file and it is 53MB! Not sure how if I can post a file that big on this website. Hey, I see you over on droidforums.net looking for the same file......how can get this thing to you? and anyone else that might need it?

    I unrooted and the update installed fine (though I had not removed any stock apps or anything like that).

    I was able to reroot with z4root.

    I was hoping this would solve my problems with 802.1x wifi but it seems it does not.

    I didn't bother unrooting and the install took just fine. Had to reroot with Z4 and that was about it. T

    he only mods I had done was renaming the droid.ogg file to droid.bak and using ADW.launcher instead of the system launcher. Also used the TTF font replacement app to change the system font.

    I second that. The only thing I really noticed was that when I go to uninstall an app, I no longer have to wait a few seconds for the list to appear.

    Had some wonkiness with my Exchange account but a couple of reboots and deleting and re-adding seems to have fixed the problem.
