    Since last system update I can no longer use my Motorola Dock. And I have no "timer function" on my phone within the Alarms app. Anyone else ?

    What type of dock are you using and what issue are you experiencing? Are you getting a message like "unfortunately dock mode has stopped?"

    From what I have read / heard the new Jelly Bean clock app no longer has a timer feature.

    I have the "basic Motorola" dock. $50 at Verizon store, has been working until Jellybean update. Yes, it simply says, it has stopped working.

    Here is what got my desk dock working again:

    1. Turn phone off...remove battery for two minutes and turn on again.

    2. Go to Menu > Manage Apps > All > find Desk Dock and open. Select Clear Data.

    3. Manage Apps again > Select Google Play Music. Uninstall App Updates...select OK to uninstall and replace with default / factory app.

    After that when you put your phone in the dock it should prompt you with choices (charge only, dock mode, etc. and a "remember selection" option). The new dock mode has bedside and productivity modes...just swipe left to right and you will see bedside mode and productivity mode. My phone worked great in the desk dock afterward...looks different now with JB but I like it. I like the new color scheme.

    Thanks for the reply SAJOKAZ. I really liked the docks features. I used it at night for the alarm clock feature. Guess I will just plug in my charger cord from now on. )-: But having a timer was a nice thing for various reasons. Know of any good timer apps?

    The alarm clock feature still works in the dock. I use mine in the desk dock as an alarm clock every night.

    I have read other folks like a free app called "AlarmDroid." Apparently has a lot of the old timer features in it. Don't know 100% for sure though, just what I have read.

    Question for you. Did you ever flash an FXZ image to your phone? A number of people are trying to troubleshoot an issue that prevents the phone from recognizing any of the docks.

    Hey sajokaz. As you can see, still no joy on getting this sorted. Thanks for trying to help out over on the Motorola forum.
