motorola backflip

AT&T has released a software update for the Motorola Backflip to improve performance and fix bugs, but it's not an update to Eclair just yet. Instead, you're getting:

  • Improved Text Messaging: General improvements to text messaging - especially for longer message threads.
  • Improved Display: Color and clarity improvements to the display.
  • Camera Correction: Repairs random occurrence of camera application quitting while in use.
  • Bluetooth Improvements: Better audio and connectivity to Bluetooth headsets.
  • Removes Size Restrictions for Ringtones: Ringtone files no longer have size restrictions.
  • Improved Network Connection: Improves overall connection to the 3G network.
  • Better Performance of Android Market™ Applications: Improves performance of downloaded applications from the Android Market™.
  • Improved Stability: Additional device stability reduces occurrence of unresponsiveness and/or programs quitting unexpectedly.
  • Improved Battery Life: Improves battery performance when battery is fully drained and charging.
  • Improved Streaming Audio & Video Playback: Repairs rare instances of streaming audio and video interruptions that have resulted in device powering off-and-on.

This is an OTA update, so just be ready for the message that it's there, and allow it to download and install.  As AT&T reminds us, data charges can and will apply, so if you're close on your monthly allotment you might want to wait for a steady WiFi connection to grab it.  Anyone who updates, feel free to shout out in the comments so the rest of us know what to expect!

Motorola Backflip gets an update -- bugfixes, not Android 2.X

My wife updated hers a few weeks back when they released it to 1,000 user test group. She sees absolutely no difference in anything and wonders what all the fuss was about. I wish they would just drop the 2.1 OTA for this brick already. Not to mention rooting it would be fantastic so owners could get rid of the blasted AT&T crapware. While on that topic maybe a little OC'ing to say... 600 Mhz from the 528 Mhz it is at now would be a benefit as well. Here's hoping.

This is funny!! "As AT&T reminds us, data charges can and will apply, so if you're close on your monthly allotment you might want to wait for a steady WiFi connection to grab it". AT&T also, reminds us that Verizon is better!
