    Rumors: Android 2.2 for DROID X Delayed? Or Rolling Out Now? | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    The quick summary is that 2.2 is apparently still having issues and has been returned from Verizon to Motorola for bugfixes, and D-L is reporting that they're now anticipating not seeing the Droid X update sooner than next week.

    Also, don't get your hopes up for the second half of that URL, they're trying to be cute by poking fun at unknowledgeable verizon reps who confuse the Incredible and X.

    The challenge I have with this article is that it states that Verizon discovered issues with the Exchange integration on the DX and sent it back to Motorola to be fixed. If I understand how OS integration happens on smartphones, I didn't think that Motorola's development teams were tweaking the actual Android source code. It was my understanding that they were developing the abstraction layer between Android and the actual Motorola hardware.

    Now maybe what this really means is that Motorola is being asked to resolve issues in the abstraction layer that are contributing to the Android software not functioning properly on the DX.

    until anyone gets confirmation it is all hearsay.

    Because the article also mentioned that the roll out has happened since 08/27 in the latter part of the article.

    If you do not hear it directly from Motorola or Verizon Wireless I would take it with a grain of salt.


    There are too many rumors flying around the net. There are too many people making statements that are not correct. The official sources have not said anything different than what they have said to begin with - it will be out late summer. Summer is not over, so until it is I would not be concerned about it.

    It is still slated as late summer on Motorola's website : https://supportforums.motorola.com/community/manager/softwareupgrades?view=overview

    Actually,as of today summer is over. As for the Exchange issues, if Verizon did send it back it would be for the corporate mail which I see as Moto software since this is not the stock email app that comes on vanilla android phones such as the Nexus One.

    As of today summer is over? That should read that as of today the Traditional Summer Idea is over. Summer ends on September 21st so they still have 15 days to put out 2.2 and still call it "Late Summer".

    What calendar do you use?

    I would venture to say that summer is not over...The northern hemisphere summer will end on September 23 at 03:09 AM GMT.

    OK... Aren't there more important things to focus on than the actual date of the last day of summer?

    Sure, but it is odd he would say today is the last day of summer ;)

    This is the end of meteorological summer (June, July, August) Not that it matters a whole lot. The update will come when it comes.

    I wouldn't depend on Verizon too much either.....have you ever called "customer service"? You gotta try around 10 times to get anyone that has any idea what is going on and doesn't LIE to you.:eek:

    Well they develop the 'drivers' (for lack of a better term) but they also throw their own UI over the stock android UI and I believe the mail client is part of the blur interface.

    If you look at my post, you will see that I provided a link to a written statement from Verizon Wireless. Those - that are in writing - are the facts that one can usually believe.

    Anyone that has dealt with Verizon Wireless sustomer service or tech support or sales staff knows that they are pretty much clueless to a lot of facts and will say pretty much anything to move you along.

    Always get it in writing.

    I assume you mean Motorola and not Verizon. Your posted link was to the Motorola forum and contained the Android upgrade release schedule defined by Motorola.

    https://supportforums.motorola.com/community/manager/softwareupgrades?view=overview

    That said, I suspect that given a choice I'd probably believe Motorola before I'd believe Verizon. I think some of VZW's customer support folks simply pass along rumors and their own wishful thinking...

    Yeah, my mistake as I did not include the link to verizons written statement in my first post in this thread...thanks for pointing that out. Here is that link to the initial news release where it states late summer for the 2.2 update : July 2010: DROID X By Motorola Lands On The Nation

    I have 2.2 on my Incredible.... kind of a letdown. One big difference I notice is in Quadrant I've scored 1201 on my Inc instead of low 500's with 2.1. But real-world usabilty there's little difference. So I'm not all that worried about "when" it will actually come out for the X. I would be more exicted if someone found a way to get rid of blur and go with Vanilla android. I really like ADW, but it seems there are still issues at times (while playing a game for a long time it starts to freeze) with having ADW and Blur running in the background. Best of all would be able to use something like ADW and nix blur or any other launcher running in the background as I believe it creates some issues having the stock launcher in the background.

    I agree froyo ain't a big deal....had it on my droid1. The speed difference made it well worthwhile. I could comfortably run five screens where before it lagged badly. Speed ain't an issue with the X. The only other notable difference was the market. Flash didn't impact me much at all.
