Droid X2

Just because it's not the latest hotness on the Android scene isn't a reason to let the Motorola Droid X2 wither and die on the vine, and Verizon has begun pushing out an update to Big Red's first dual-core phone. It's not a big version bump by any means, but there are a few important changes:

  • Verizon Video and VZ Navigator® 3D City are now preloaded.
  • A Google Security Patch has been added to improve the security level.
  • Purchased ringtones are now able to be saved and set.
  • Device is enabled with the Wireless Alerting System.
  • Shortcut names can be updated and saved.
  • The keyboard Input Auto Error Correction setting defaults to off.

Granted, few of us really missed not having the 3D version of VZ Navigator, but the security patch is good to have, and the wireless alerting system is an important update -- one that could end up saving your bacon. Of course, bug fixes are always welcome. If you haven't received the update notification yet, check for it via your Droid X settings.

Motorola Droid X2 updated with security patch, wireless alerts, and bug fixes


Fuck vzw, moto. and the dx2.... They basically are saying that in order to have up to date security you have to load their shitty bloatware. They really dont give a shit about the customer, they are only updating this phone to push their services like navigation (costing a monthly fee) and ringtone service (costing more money).

The only think keeping this phone from actually withering away and dying are developers like dragonzkilla, and the guy who makes eclipse (Cant think of his name). But honestly, why isn't this phone being updated to ics, the specs are more than capable.

One thing is for sure, I wont be buying a motorola phone ever again unless its a nexus brand, which doesn't look likely to happen in the near future.

Ill stik with my rooted DX2 running CM7, and hopefully CM9 in the near future.
