Motorola offers some help for the borked Cliq update

If that borked update for the Motorola Cliq has kept you up nights, there's some relief in sight. The guys and gals at These Are The Droids got Moto to acknowledge there's been an issue, and a workaround has been identified. Said Moto:

Last week, the CLIQ 1.3.18 over-the-air software update began rolling out to consumers. While the vast majority of updates were successful, a very small number of consumers reported a date error and found that, after factory resetting their device, their phone was not functioning properly. We have identified a workaround solution for these consumer

Turns out there it was an issue with the over-the-air nature of the update. And if you're having issues, you can re-update through the SD card using these instructions. Good luck, and let us know how things worked out. [These are the Droids]
