Droid X Froyo Question
Seams like the Evo 4G and Incredible are getting a nice update rolled into their Froyo update. Adding 720p video, new widgets, fixes, and improvements. Does anyone think Moto will do the same for us X'ers? I would like a volume fix, actual smileys, and some new widgets or goodies on top of my Froyo. Then the X may just be the greatest phone ever. Maybe they surprise us and unlock the bootloader or add the option to run stock android without any blur, things like this. What would anyone else like to see in an update to make our Froyo that much sweeter?Galaxy Nexus!!! Finally Mine

Re: Droid X Froyo Question
Im just hoping for some things but like i said they are just minor gripes like the no smileys. The only real problem for me personally is the low ringer volume i hope they address.

I don't really ask for much since I use my own custom setup with LauncherPro and Beautiful Widgets, but I would like to see:
1. Ability to separate FB contacts with Gmail contacts (or just use FB pics for contacts), though that's all part of the pseudo-blur experience so I doubt it will happen. Not too much of an issue for me though.
2. Ability to uninstall bloatware (namely Blockbuster and City ID).
3. Increased volume, general and specificSamsung Galaxy Nexus (Dec. 2011)

I just know they said that the "blur" was implimented as an App, and as such updates would not be held up/delayed. I want to see them make good on their word. They have until August 3rd to announce an upgrade date prior to the 12th, which is when the similar Droid 2 launches with 2.2, so they should have no problem hitting that date. If anything, they should rush 2.2 out for the X ASAP so they can get bug reports going so the Droid 2 can be patched quickly for a smooth launch period.
If that doesn't happen, then I'll have to consider my return options. I know Verizon doesn't want that.

Well look at all the cool things HTC is adding and/or fixing with their Froyo update. Adding widgets, 720p recording, Swype, and updated Facebook integration with the Calender. They are adding features to the camera and all kinds of stuff I have been reading about. So I don't think it is to far fetched for Moto to do the same when they are ready to roll out their Froyo update.
The only one I can see iffy is the speaker volume cause we don't know if it is a software issue or a hardware one. But couldn't be hard to just let the smileys show up as smiley faces, add in cut and paste, etc...Especially if these things have been included in the older Droid. Maybe it was something they overlooked when they integrated the new Blur.
I love my X and I am just excited to see what future updates can bring and what this beast is capable of. Lets just hope Moto supports it the way HTC has their phones.Galaxy Nexus!!! Finally Mine

I just hope that Motorola doesn't WAIT to add/fix all these issues. I'd love to just get 2.2, even with the same issues. Follow up with a bug fix release afterwards. I don't want to be waiting just so Facebook is better integrated or something else unrelated like that. Just release 2.2 then worry about everything else.
And I'm not saying release a buggy OS, but I's say as long as very few bugs pop up just release it ASAP.

Would really like to see some sort of nightstand mode with settings that could turn off the LED notification lights with or without turning off the notifications. Sleeping with the DX in the same room is a challenge with all its flashing lights. Even turning it over doesn't stop the flash totally.

I think what us X owners really need - more than Froyo - is an update that fixes several of the bugs that people are experiencing.
