Atrix Update: Version 4.1.57 ......
So some of you probably already know that Motorola is pushing out an a 17MB fix for some issues. They are:
-Bluetooth Improved multimedia experience with Bluetooth devices as well as the ability to use phone with additional headsets
-Fingerprint reader Improved fingerprint reader performance
-Battery Improved battery performance for longer battery life
-Screen Display will turn off automatically now while charging directly on wall charger
-Phone stability Improved stability resulting in fewer occurrences of touch unresponsiveness and/or programs quitting unexpectedly.
-Car dock Improved performance of car dock and 3.5mm Jack
I cant say personally that I have had an issues with either addressed cliffnote. But I will say that once running, everything seems more on point and snappier. This will be a nice fix for people that are having issues with any of these features.
Once AT&T pushes out that fix for the HSUPA, thats when its really going down!
NOTE: Keep in mind, when this update gets pushed out, You can be non rooted or rooted and it will download for you. If you have "Moded" your phone in anyway, it wont work. Such as deleting sytem applications, altering Motorola files or even doing specific hacks like the "Webtop Hack". Now I did the webtop hack on my rooted Atrix. And even though the directions said to do an ADB push of a code to return it back to stock, it did but apparently kept something in the system altered. So I dont recommend doing that. If you do, You will have to flash the sbf. file for the Atrix back on your phone to bring it to complete stock. And just erasing the phone and doing a soft reset will not fix the problem. Just keep all of that in mind. If your rooted, ok. If your rooted and have loaded other roms or have done custom hacks, This update will NOT download for you.
Thank you. Ill be here all week. Besure to tip your waitress

They also need to address the connection issues, making the keys on the OEM keyboard Wider, WIFI goes out of range not to far from the router and its extremely irratating at times. But I will confirm, when this update is pushed out the phone is a lot more smoother. You will notice it when scrolling through your contacts and apps also. Silky smoother :P

I'm enjoying the update. I did do the webtop hack and it installed fine, but did take a long time to start up after the update finished installing. seemed like it rebooted twice and that may have been the reason why.
Things I am noticing already:
- swype keyboard seems to be more accurate.
- device is snappier even though i already thought it was snappy enough.
- the phone rotates all too easy now... it's faster going into landscape and then back.
- fingerprint scanner has improved. it was great until i installed widgetlocker, but now it seems to be playing nicely with it.
Great update... I didn't root and yes, the Android Central Sideload Wonder Machine still works =)

also... i can't say the battery has improved as i started using two more widgets and also was messing with the brightness (increasing it) early. Also, this is actually the new battery i received yesterday which i still need to calibrate. i'll probably run more tests later (after calibration) to see if i notice any differences.

the main issue is going completely stock... that is the main concern IMO.
meanwhile, i'll try to find some literature on reverting back.
Well honestly guys, It was the first time I ever flashed an sbf to my phone. First time ever doing it, and it was REALLY easy. XDA has the instructions. You just download the SBF file, a Moto program and the instructions tell you what to do. And I had 80% battery. It really wasnt hard at all, it was quick and simple and restored the phone completely back to when I first got it brand new. I only did this because I did a factory reset and thought that would fix the problem for the update to work, and it didnt. After 6 attempts, I flashed the file and was good to go with no problems.
Duvi, Im suprised you had the webtop hack, reverted back and it still worked for you. Im only thinking that was the issue. But then again, I noticed when I flashed the phone, apps showed up from Motorola that I had deleted and completely forgot about. Im not doing that anymore, IM just going to freeze them now. That was a lesson learned for me.
EDIT noticed. I had my phone off the charger today at 9:30am and almost 12 hours later, the battery is at 40%. And I did a lot on the phone today, plus I have a live wallpaper from Beautiful Widgets. Now that seems more improved also with this update.

edit: i found the link, and to be honest i think i'll stay away from all that. I'm just not confident enough, i rather unroot and since a member has no problems then i'll try that. If not i'll just call att and act super dumb like i dont know whats going on and why i cant update.

if you're in the pre-release beta, than you can go into: settings > about phone > system updates
you can also do this when the update is available to the public.

It looks like as of right now you cant root. This should eventually be fixed by our friends at XDA. The update is good though. Makes the phone a lot snappier I think.

Yes Sir! If you have Facebook linked to MotoBlur, Go in your contacts and pull that display up. ANd scroll and watch how quick and on point it is. I noticed that right away after the update.
Then when HSUPA comes to us, we will all hopefully be very pleased!
