    Just wondering if and when verizon or motorola will send out a fix update for the 2.2 Bugs. I've got a browser bug that drives me insane. It will just shut off and go back to the home screen. Please send out a update fix for 2.2. Thanks :-)

    df79transam,

    ditch the stock browser for Dolphin HD. Much better kit browser IMO, with tons of cool add-on apps (all free).

    Fifth Sunday in October. These bugs have been around since first os leak dropped. And they didn't fix them. So I don't think there in a hurry to fix it.

    Agreed, it will be a little while. Like I was content with waiting for 2.0 in the hopes that moto was going to provide a solid upgrade, I'm willing to wait so that they produce a solid upgrade. They really didn't provide a solid upgrade so here's hoping to the bug fix

    Nor were they in a hurry to push 2.2 out to us. Between the lack of quality in 2.2, and Motorola's delaying of releasing it, I'm quite disappointed. HTC seemed to have gotten their act together, the Incredible and EVO seem to have minimal issues with 2.2, and they were pushed out in a timely manner.

    The stakes are different now. 2.1 was quite stable and they were in no hurry to release 2.2. Moto did not give Froyo the appropriate priority, did not assign the proper resources to get it out on time. Now that the buggy 2.2 version is out, it is costing them $$ to support it. So now it is in their best interest to assign all the resources necessary to get this thing done right. There will probably be no update until EVERY known bug gets fixed. They will not release piecemeal updates. My best guess is we will see it before the end of October.

    By the time an update comes around, the X will probably be off the market and replaced by something else. As fast as Android phones are being produced, I see the X being replaced either by or shortly after Christmas. If that happens, you bet that Motorola will indeed take their sweet time in prepping an update if it hasn't been done by then, they'll be focusing more on the newer devices that are released at that time.

    The reason I have the Droid X is because the INC 2.2 update killed my phone. There were many problems with the INC update and HTC did not admit to any of them. There were also problems with the original Evo 2.2 update which HTC did fix in a short period of time. All I can say for me the X 2.2 update went a million times smoother then my Incredible update.

    Interesting... I have friends that own both phones and they've had nothing but goodl luck with theirs. Meanwhile I'm sitting here wondering why my phone is sluggish...

    After having such issues with the Inc and the 2.2 update and having no major issues with the X update I am convinced it is really luck of the draw. Some people are going to have no issues when they get an update and many others will have big issues. You would think it would be more scientific then that but I do not believe it is.

    Very true. It's very wierd how people can have the same phone, not modify the operating system in any way, receive the same update, yet a handful of people will have nothing but issues while the rest are fine. My, how technology is great!

    I am lucky and I did not have to do this, but did you try this to fix your problems? http://forum.androidcentral.com/moto...-2-update.html

    It seems to be working for a lot of people.

    So.... what are all these bugs in 2.2 and since when was 2.1 more stable?? My device works way better after the update. And just to make sure i was getting the best, I factory reset.

    With the Storm2, there were 5 different manufacturing locations for the handset. I had a US built Storm2 on launch, it broke and I got a refurb from Mexico. All these diffrent locations can have tiny differences in hardware set-up. Don't know if that is how the Droid handsets work, but it could be a good possibilty.

    I don't know but ill mention it anyways, I wish verizon would give folks the option to go back to 2.1, and that might be and option, like I said, I don't know. At least their phone worked.
    And another thing, im gonna be madder than he'll if they come out with the second version of this phone around christmas, that's the same **** they done with the blackberry storm, and im still bitter about that. Make us X owners feel like we just bought the best device on the market.

    Word. Went through that same crap with all of my Blackberrys. Thought I had the latest and greatest, then a few months later a better one comes out to replace that device I JUST got. However, since Android phones are multiplying quickly, it wouldn't surprise me if what you mentioned did happen.

    That would be sweet though to get a better, higher contrast screen with deeper
    black levels , ditch the clunky physical buttons for capacitive, improve and refine the
    Motoblur OS and come with a bigger battery, minus the weird lump on the back !!

    I kinda like the layout of the droid x. I looked at buying an incredible and the fasicinate but both have those touch capacitive buttons, and I kept accidently hitting them, I liked the screen size of the X along with the physical buttons at the bottom. The X is like living in heaven compared to where I was at earlier this year, I had a storm one, so im used to bugs, I can put up with 2.2's bugs for a while but would still like to be assured, that moto and Vzw are concerned and are trying to fix the issues.
    Its nice to feel loved. :-)
