New Software Update Headed to DROID 2

It’s the DROID 2 this time, not the Global version which saw a soak test and changelog go live for last week.  This update could very well be almost identical to that of the D2 Global though, but we will have to wait for the release notes to know for sure. It won’t be Ice Cream Sandwich if you were holding out hope, since the DROID 2 was left off of Verizon’s list of devices scheduled to receive the Android 4.0.

See the email going out to Motorola Feedback Network members below. 

Hi,

Thanks for joining the Motorola Feedback Network. We are inviting owners of the Motorola Droid 2 on Verizon to participate in an early preview of a new software release, and provide feedback.

Click this link to take a short enrollment survey if you wish to take part. Note that you must be a member in good standing of the Motorola Owners’ Forums to be included. The registration window is short so please respond as quickly as possible.

Thanks — please understand that start times are always fluid. We ask for your patience if you register but don’t hear from us right away.

How many of you still have a DROID 2? This is a device that seems to have disappeared from most people’s radar. Nice to see it receive some love from Big Red.

Cheers C!

    used to love my little lg dare, now its a wonderfull alarm clock, charge it once a month or so

  • Pdiddy187

    I still use my Droid 2 as my multimedia alarm clock.

  • John Davids

    I still have my D2. Got it @ launch. I am really hoping this fixes the random reboot bug that the Gingerbread update introduced. Heres hoping.

    My wife still has a Droid 2 and it is a piece of sh!t. It locks up constantly. Hopefully this will finally fix it since she isn’t due for an upgrade until August.

      Droid 2 sucks

  • cbkcc1

    i still have the market issue even with the D2G update and new Market update.  It shows no apps under my account, I have reset the phone and etc and etc to try and fix it.  Old Markets new Markets, nothing ever works.  Very frustrating.

    I bet it’s the D2 variant of that root-busting featureless update they gave to the DX a while back. F you, Moto.

  • RedPandaAlex

    I’m very wary of accepting this update, if it’s the same as the DX update that people are having a hard time rooting. Though really I only have a little over a month before I can upgrade. To something with a quad-core processor and an unlocked bootloader.

  • Captainhowdy13

    My D2 has been driving me nuts with all the bugs lately. I want to smash it with a hammer. Hope this fixes it. 

  • Johngi

    i have a d2 running galnet… gonna try to get an inc 2 , i wanna run ics.. lol 

    • sc0rch3d

      my D2 is running ICS like a champ! it’s a lil laggy b/c devs can only do so much to it.

      i thought of making it my daily driver again, but it can’t compare to my gnex

      • Johngi

        what rom ? cm9?

        • TheJ

          pure ics no camera go with BMOD ics v1.1 or if you want, miuiics runs great with many tweaks and mods

          • Johngi

            yeah thats why im still on galnet. i need a camera.

            Ihope any rom gets a fix soon, if not i might try to trade a inc 2 for my d2

      • TheJ

        Oc to 1.2G then put screen and window transition to 0 set gov to ondemand. BMOD ics is faster than cm7 … miui ics is snappy as anything …

        I’m dual booting mine with CM7 and CM9 via Boot Manager. CM9 is pretty awesome, very few bugs. Camera doesn’t work, Bluetooth audio during calls is choppy (it’s fine at all other times) and battery life is iffy, but it’s definitely usable as a daily driver if you don’t need a camera. (I only dual boot so I can use the camera when needed)

    Patiently waiting for my Gnex update from google.

    • Keithsmnr

      Awwww, poor baby!

  • Derickmc

    I still have a Droid2… Not in use. I keep it as my backup phone in case anything happens to my Rezound. Maybe I’ll power it on and see if the update gets pushed to it… I just got the Gingerbread update a couple weeks ago becuase I haven’t turned it on in so long.

    • belsonc

       Same thing with me and my Thunderbolt – when I got it replaced with the Charge, I haven’t turned the TB on since then.  They announced it’ll be getting ICS, and mine is still rocking FroYo…

      • Azndan4

        TB is a great phone when you put CM7 on it. Stock firmware is garbage. Bloated and slow
