    I hope I'm not being redundant here, but has anyone heard anything about an ICS update for DX2? This phone isn't even a year old, I would expect Moto to upgrade it.

    I'm out of the loop, but have they confirmed that they are going to make Cyanogen for the X2?

    But, check out this video to see how much of CM9 is already operational. Can't wait!

    Well, as many may already know, there are news items being posted on a lot of android/mobile websites about a letter a person received from Motorola. Well, that person was me and it's not good. For those that are not aware of this, I finally received an email response from Motorola concerning the unlocking of the bootloader and ICS for the X2. The bootloader response is the same: as carriers allow. The ICS question was not good. Here is the response I received:

    Thanks for trying! At least they responded to you about it. I don't know why they couldn't have just said no on the website to begin with instead of dragging people's hopes along.
