    Verizon is looking out for you and won't allow a bug filled OS to be pushed to your phone until Motorola fixes them. Why are you complaining?

    Whats it matter? Its bloat loaded and wont even be android 2.3.4 most likely so it wont even be the most current. We have CM7 booting off froyo (and it 2nd-init which allows it to boot doesnt play nice with the GB kernel). CM (or any source build) is infinitely better than whatever blur-infested crap moto pushes out.... The only good thing that might come from the GB update would be updated lib's and the possibility of an unlocked bootloader *if* (and a very very big if) moto does the same as they did with the atrix.

    CM9 builds for D2G, D2, and DX

    Thanks so much for sharing; I feel like bad news is better than no news.

    Someone chime in if they can... I heard with anything under 2.3 there is a huge wifi security flaw, someone can take your sensitive information if you connect to their hub. Is this true? Isn't this a HUGE reason why one would want the update? Do custom Roms address this?

    Personally I do not give a flying f**k about GB. What I would be happy with is if possible to release the updated radio to hopefully fix all these problems on GSM with a foreign SIM. I wonder why they have not done so already? Isn't the radio drivers/firmware independent more or less of the kernal? I saw with my G1 they released 2 radio updates independent of the OS

    This is like the boy that cried wolf! First verizion is ready to push out the up date until Motorola said stop. Now Motorola is ready and its verizion screaming stop. Really? And as the second link stated there is no official word from either company's.

    Two points to make here...

    One is that the bugs whatever they are weren't bad enough to be discovered during testing so how bad could they be that they need to delay the release? And they can make another bug free update and send OTA anytime they want so there really was no real GOOD reason to delay the update.

    That said I doubt more than .2% of you actually intend to run the OTA for more than a few hours and even if you got it would quickly be trying to SBF back because Biker and 13th got some libs he needed to finish the port of CM7.

    Pretty much every piece of software has bugs and the good ones have bugs you will never notice.

    So VZW should just let Moto handle thier software, notify them of any issues and fix them in a later OTA patch.

    And they are delaying even for a day I see no reason for them not to add the unlock to the bootloader so we folks who are much better at bug freer software can make our own operating system and fixes without any further effort on thier part!

    Release what you got and update when you got more!
    At least we will then have the stuff needed to get the phone to act the way it should while they are fumbling on software rollouts.
