Motorola Posts DROID X Froyo Issues List, No Timetable on Fixing

The Motorola Forums manager has posted a list of pretty well-known issues that people are running into after they have installed Android 2.2 on their Droid X.  The list isn’t huge, but some of the problems have frustrated many of you since day one on Froyo.  They won’t release a timeframe for when these will be fixed, so try your best to be patient.  Here they are…

Stuck on Moto logo after reboot – this was tough on a few owners. Very sorry about that. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release. If you are still experiencing this issue, click here.

Random rebooting – while there always seem to be new conditions that can cause an electronic device to panic, we do have improvements coming that address and eliminate identified panic states. They will be distributed in a future software release.

WiFi connection and stability – improvements in WiFi have been developed, to address several problem areas. They will be distributed in a future software release.

Battery Manager “force close” errors – under some circumstances, pressing the battery icon under Menu > Settings > Battery Manager results in a forced close error. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release.

Media won’t play – includes “sorry the player does not support this type of audio file,” custom ringtone stop working, video won’t play, etc., until after a reboot. We believe we have identified the cause of these errors. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release.

Music files cutting off the final four seconds or so – a solution has been developed. It will be distributed in a future software release.

Put me into the “random rebooting” category.  Anyone else experiencing any of these?

    How about addressing the volume and speaker issues you told us you were going to fix last August 2011. The speaker volume is REALLY LOUSY, and incoming call volume is equally poor. What happened to the “fix” or did I miss it?

    I just sent back one Droid X for random rebooting (OS 2.2.1) and wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I mailed back the old one, the new one (2nd refurb) started doing it when I went to reply to an email (gmail) and send it…. Is anyone else continuing to have this problem after 2.2 came out with 2.2.1???

    I hope Motorola and Verizon can please address this issue. If it's something else that is causing this problem I have no idea what it is.Thanks for sharing with us

    Some of the problems have frustrated many people since day one on Froyo…Well I think this is going to be the negative point for this company.

    The “Silent Toggle Widget” seems to have disabled my phone's ability to vibrate for all notifications (except calls). I uninstalled the app and now the phone won't vibrate for emails, texts, etc. I made sure to use the settings you described above, but the app kept forcing to silent mode and vibrate wouldn't work even with the setting you said to select

    Most seems to work OK since the upgrade. But my auto syncing with my some of my Google applications stopped working. My email is still syncing OK. My phone no longer automatically syncs my Google calendar to my phone. I can do it manually though. But, my Google contacts no longer sync automatically to my phone, and I can't make it happen manually either. I go into “Accounts”, select my Google account, and press “Sync Contacts” and nothing happens. I have a question in to Verizon on the issue and don't have an answer yet. I don't really know if it's a Verizon issue or a Google issue. This is a serious issue for me, if I can't fix it. It's one of the main reasons I got the phone.

    I haven't experienced any of these problems on this droid x. My wifi works like a champ too but my first droid x which Verizon replaced for free got stuck on logo and always did. I do have on problem tho when I'm typing sometimes my keyboard drops on me for no reason. See it just did it.

    I suppose it could be, but I never had this issue before updating to Froyo. I can't imagine the phone suddenly didn't like my router.

    When I first updated my X to Froyo, I had battery manager issues. It continued after a hard reset (I reset for a completely different reason). Then one day last week, it started working again! I haven't had any problems since. Could they have silently pushed the fix to the phones?

    Wi-fi will no longer hold a connection. As soon as it connects it drops the connection.
