Gingerbread is Here for Atrix

Gingerbread is Here for Atrix

This is the real upgrade directly from Motorola, not a false alarum to raise hate and discontent.

 

Earlier this afternoon Motorola released the long awaited Gingerbread upgrade.  They are doing a phased rollout but when I checked a few minutes ago I found that it was available to me but now have to wait for the battery to recharge as it is recommended to start with at least 50% battery reserve.  It appears to be an upgrade to 2.3.4 instead of 2.3.3.

 

A change log is or should be posted somewhere in the Motorola Support pages or their Atrix forums.  This upgrade must be downloaded over Wi-Fi due to large amount of data, 160 MB, and is expected to take between 30 and 60 minutes to install depending upon how much additional software and data is on the device.  This is an install over upgrade, not a clean install which some may elect to perform afterwards.

 

Settings > About Phone > System Updates.  Text messages announcing the upgrade are supposed to start going out next week.

Re: Gingerbread is Here for Atrix

I got it today. I love it! So is this a Motorola update or Android update?

I have a question about it. I now have 2 battery icons at the top of my screen. The one on the left is sideways, green, and shows the charge. The one on the right is in an upright position and has a check mark inside. Does anyone know what the second icon is for? Is it just telling me I do have a battery?? That seems a little redundant.

You can also update the phone via SD card, with an update downloadable to your computer available here.

The one that looks like a check mark isn't a battery icon. It's your alarm clock icon. ;-)

You're welcome! Yeah, I don't know why they made it look like that. It does look like a battery. :-)

Re: Gingerbread is Here for Atrix

I am downloading it right now. I always loved Gingerbread!

 

Also glad that my recent post here worked- the one about switching back to the iPhone pending the Gingerbread update.

 

Within days, we got Netflix enabled for Atrix and Gingerbread, too. Smiley Happy

Hi there, check the birthdates for your contacts, I've lost all my contacts' birthdates after the Gingerbread upgrade. A quick Google search shows other users have had the birthdates shifted by 1 month. Atrix 4G

Re: Gingerbread is Here for Atrix

The plot thickens, I can no longer specify a birthday for a newly created contact, the field is not displayed at all. You can try this yourselves, I believe this is a Gingerbread/Motorola bug. I have exported all my contacts as a vcard and the birthdays are definitely there - they are just not displayed under 'Contacts' nor are you able to set a birthday for a new contact....

I cannot log a call to AT&T due to me living outside US, but you guys can do it...Smiley Happy

True, the birthday field no longer displays in the contact card.
