    Still keeping my eye out for a GB leak or a time frame for VZW update. Seriously considering ditching D2G for lack of support.

    Really? It looks like you already have a thunderbolt, thats what your signature says.

    Look, a point here. The global is a considerably different phone from the x and droid 2. As such it is harder to develop for. Things take time, and just be patient.

    Wow hostilies, didn't mean to offend anyone. Yes I do have a thunderbolt, a dx and d2g. There are several roms/mods for d2 and dx and I was just curious if 2.3 had leaked or if anyone knew about it? Hadnt seen anything, just thought i'd through it out for debate and maybe get a thread going about it. I wasn't demanding just seems as if the d2g isnt looked at much. Seems a lot of you just flip through looking to jump someone's s***. Nevermind

    Look, there's no need to be so abrasive, your sig does say you have a tbolt, and it is harder to dev for the D2G, and its newer so it gets updates after the older models, no need to take a comment so personally

    I'm referring to the 2.3 leak for the d2 and dx the d2g was said to be soon to follow. Everyone here gets their information from a variety of sources. I was simply trying to start a thread and maybe get some info going around. I have no doubt that the d2g is harder and more extensive to dev for. However, the update was made by motorola from what I have come to conclude. That's what people at motorola spend all day doing and get paid probably really well to do. Not someone going to school with a wife and kids developing in their spare time. I didn't know how sensitive the sort of subject was, note taken-> Don't post in a d2g thread using a tbolt. Got it. The lack of support meaning that it gets looked over and it doesn't seem have a lot of interest. It's a subversion of the d2. The thunderbolt is what 2 weeks old and has how many roms, mods, skins, themes? The D2G has what? I paid about the same price for each device. Do I really need to research update time lines on all devices to determine when is a proper time to ask "any word on updates?" The reason I ask is the phone runs like garbage. My OG ran twice as smooth, twice as fast, lasted twice as long, and had everyones attention since day one. To be honest I'd like to see some improvement on this pricey piece of equipment and anyone who owns one probably agrees. Yes a software fix would be pleasantly accepted. So that being said if you dont have a word or insight this thread is not intended for you. I didn't ask what device I used to post a thread.

    Which phone got the ax?
    D2 or D2G?
    Its the D2 that got the axe, not the D2G.
    Patience is the key. Motorola and verizon have been pushing this whole "droid does" campaign. I'm sure they want their phones to be at the top. From what I know, don't quote me, the DX and D2 are pretty much the same so a few tweaks and the DX leak was able to work for the D2.
    One of the biggest difference with the D2G is how it has
    both cdma and gsm antennas.

    Think about it, Motorola has how many products?
    Im pretty sure my Rokr E8 was at it eol when I got it, since that was a bit before Motorola really started pushing all these android phones out. Even till today the modding community for that phone is pretty much dead now.
    Im sure Motorola have their people working on just about everything. But trying to get an OS update that will try to please everyone and get the carriers approval sounds like a whole lot. Even then im sure there are tons of people who don't even know what version of android they have, what root means, or who would even update when available.

    I'm just trying to see things in a more broader view.

    I don't care. My D2G is the first Android phone/device I've ever had and I agree with Androidgeek. Seriously considering ditching D2G for lack of support. Both from Moto and the community. I've had my phone since it was released in November, and I've only seen ONE ROM that was released for it by the community.

    And apparently people jump all over your **** here, I'm not bashing the community. It's obviously just the lack of adoption. I only bought the D2G so I could use it when I traveled, but that's also the same thing that killed it. They should just drop the D2G (they will soon) and stop wasting people's time.

    Then do it already, stop complaining, and get out of the d2g board. We dont need guys like you flogging around your personal phone demons. It gets nothing done.

    Hey, what about this instead, YOU learn to code for android, and YOU start making ROMs, instead of complaining like children about updates and such. Otherwise suck it up.
