    AT&T and Motorola have released an update to the Motorola BACKFLIP device to enhance overall performance of the device. This software update provides improvements to messaging, display, camera, and Bluetooth functionality. This update will upgrade BACKFLIP devices from software version 0.12.1199 to 0.13.35.

    This Blur Over The Air (BOTA) update will be a two stage process. The first update will be marked “1 of 2” and will take between 35 seconds and one (1) minute to download over 3G. The second update will be marked “2 of 2” and will take between three (3) and 10 minutes to download over 3G. The updates will download in the background and customers can resume normal operation of the device during the downloads. While customers can use their device as normal during the download process, they will be unable to make and receive calls during the installation of the update.

    The update will be made available for customers who check for updates from their device on May 5, 2010. The updates will be pushed to customer devices beginning May 11, 2010.

    PS: Doesn't appear to be live yet.

    AT&T's internal website? Motorola's internal website?

    I'm quite sure it's just a patch update of 1.5. Motorola is focusing on 2.1 and nothing in between as far as I've heard. No sense in porting incrementally to 1.6 when you can go straight to 2.1

    Well I just checked this morning and they removed the information from our internal website. There must have been an issue with it. I will keep everyone updated.

    Any word on the enhancement update for the Backflip. Trying to keep up with it for my girlfriend who owns the phone? An update improving overall performance would be great!

    I think the cliq recently got a motoblur update, which means the backflip can't be far behind. But nobody knows really right now.

    There must have been an issue with the update. They pulled it one day after I posted this. Our motorola rep is saying the 11th will be the day.

    Just finished the update. Hard to tell what's different just yet. General navigation seems speedier. Anyone have a feature list included with this release?

    I too am fully upgraded. First thing I noticed is the Alarm Clock Lights are fixed. Also the camera opens up much faster.

    For those who have installed the full update:

    If you go to menu->settings->applications->development
    Can you still check USB debugging?

    Can you still install non-market apps?

    Does tethering still work (PDANet or EasyTether)?

    Can you turn off 3G?

    If you run the market app and then go to the My downloads area and then menu->notifications does the market app still force close?

    USB debugging is still possible.

    And WDCMA cannot be turned off on my phone, but couldn't before either.

    Don't know about non-market apps, or tethering.

    And yes, market app still force closes after menu > notifications.

    For whatever reason my wife's isn't showing the update. She's tried updating manually and it shows nothing. She's still on version 0.12.1199. Reset the phone and everything. Anyone have any ideas?
