DROIDX2 2.3.4 Update Gets Its Changelog – Bug Fixes Galore

Not that this update is a surprise to anyone, but the 2.3.4 for the DROIDX2 finally received its changelog on Verizon’s site.  The update – which already has an SBF available – will fix a dozen or so bugs that were introduced when it first picked up Gingerbread.  Nothing major, but added polish is always accepted with open arms around these parts.

More info.

    Downloading now, my guess is this phone will continue to suck after the update… long live my broken ThunderBolt

    I have to show some appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from this particular incident. As a result of researching through the world wide web and obtaining basics which were not pleasant, I assumed my life was done. Living minus the approaches to the difficulties you have solved through this short post is a serious case, as well as the kind that might have adversely affected my career if I had not noticed your blog. Your good natural talent and kindness in maneuvering every part was important. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a solution like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this professional and amazing guide. I will not hesitate to recommend your site to anyone who requires care about this topic.

    I’m hoping this means that the updated version of Gingerbread for the D2G will finally be released.

  • Bbrutcher

      It is not that bad. Much better than the original Droid. I have very few issues with it.

    That’s great for DX2 owners. Still waiting for Motorola to address all the bugs they created with their Gingerblur build for the Droid X. :(

      They probably won’t. To them the phone is finished.

        To me, Moto is finished. They destroyed the DX and DX2 with GB. Nothing but reboots and lockups.

          meh…root, install CM7, MIUI, ICX, Liberty etc….problem solved.

        • digsoreos

          Let’s hope the Galaxy Nexus is a runaway hit. Maybe that will be the thing that makes Motorola realize that Blur is not the way to go?

          • Billyrouth2000

            So u would rather have all phones look exactly the same ( software wise) this is android not iphone

          • digsoreos

            Did I say that? No. Have you heard of LauncherPro? Circle Launcher? Go Launcher? Widgets? This is Android, not iOS.

          • Anonymous

            And you can’t install them over blur, or you just won’t because you’re scared. 

          • digsoreos

            Sure, you can. But why would you want to when Blur+bloat is the way to go?

          • Anonymous

            I do agree but people complain to much

  • digsoreos

    Hahaha better type fast and hope the keyboard bugs were fixed completely.

      I’ve been running this update for 3 days or so now (since the SBF leaked) and I have to admit that for the first time EVER, I finally consider my X2 a fully usable device:

      -It is now much faster to boot up.  Phone shuts down faster now as well
      -NO random reboots at all since I installed 2.3.4
      -Camera app is much more stable.  They FINALLY fixed the flash/shutter sync bug that has plagued the X2 since its release.  I’d say my X2 is still a bit worse than my old X2 in low-light conditions but the camera is finally (mostly) usable now.  Video capture is also quite a bit smoother.  I still have an occaional hiccup in 720p recording even to a fast card.  Also, I still get an occasional lockup when taking still shots.  Moto enlarged the onscreen shutter buttons in this update as well.
      -3G signal still random drops on occasional, though it’s not as bad as it was on 2.3.3.  It usually happens when I disconnect from wi-fi. Toggling Airplane mode on and off usually fixes it. 
      -Reception is MUCH better.  I tested it in a friend’s windowless basement the other day and my X2 usually got 1 bar there and was often without a signal at all.  Now I get a solid 1-2 bars consistently.
      -Screen unlock swipe is much smoother. 
      -Battery life, after I rerooted and calibrated the battery, is as good as it was under Froyo, which is to say it’s now a tad better under 2.3.4 than it was before under 2.3.3. 
      -The Moto news widget no longer fails to update with new stories
      -Contacts and Task manager have new icons
      -The keyboard lag is still present but not as frequent or as bad as it was before.  The bug where the phone would get stuck with the keyboard up and would require a reboot has thankfully been fixed from what I’ve seen. 
      -3G data speeds seem to be a tad faster than they were before and the phone isn’t running as hot in marginal areas.
      -Audio stuttering problem is still present but greatly minimized.  I can definitely live with it now.
      -RAM management seems better now too.  I have picked up ~15 or 20 more MB free with the same appload as I had under 2.3.3

      Overall, this update still has a few minor bugs (mainly audio pauses and the flaky camera) but it’s a huge improvement over 2.3.3.  I encourage everyone to go ahead and install the SBF if you feel up to it, as the OTA official update looks to be an identical build.

    Perhaps it has something to do with corporate security policies if a DX2 is provided by some employer? In any case, it makes you wonder about what fixes weren’t worked on because this took precendence.

    • Anonymous

      Nothing to do with corporate phones. The bugs, reboots and lockups happen to a LOT of people and very few were corporate. I went through 3 DX / DX2′s. All were tolerable on Froyo, but became extremely unreliable with GB. None were corporate.

      • digsoreos

        I meant this in reply to the new fix that allows more than 63 characters to be used for passwords for the hotspot feature. Sorry for the confusion. It looks like my reply didn’t get placed in that thread.

  • Anonymous

    Droid X still going strong – great device!

  • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

    Mobile Hotspot now allows for a 63+ character password? AWESOME, JUST WHAT I’VE ALWAYS WANTED!

    Seriously, I wonder how long the average hotspot password is… lol

    • digsoreos

      Haha. I was going to say something about that. It’s been a bane to my existence being limited to only 63 characters up until now.

      • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

        I mean people actually complained to Moto/Verizon about it to get it changed? Seems kinda crazy ya know? I don’t know why any of the engineers would want to make this change (unless they’re the ones wanting the 64 character password!)

    • PyroHoltz

      But Motoroloa forgot to change the time out period while entering passwords to something higher than 10 seconds.

  • Hamholla

    im still noticing occasional bugs even with this update. Here’s to selling this mint x2 when the nexus comes out.

      Its a start, and overall its snappier now.

    The D2G needs about a dozen bug fixes too, after receiving Gingerbread.

    • http://twitter.com/Qeegan Qeegan

      I agree !!!

    • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

      There is a fix, it’s called the Droid3. Kidding, kidding… :-P

    • http://twitter.com/batfandotcom Ben Rollier

      Agreed.  Get on it Moto

  • http://twitter.com/Qeegan Qeegan

    • Jmuth197
