    • Prompt return to full screen brightness after wake-up.
    • Upgraded Bluetooth firmware.
    • Improved interoperability with Microsoft Internet Application Gateway (IAG) configurations.
    • Device string format for Exchange changed to include device name and version number
    .
    • Upgrade to Google applications Release 7
    • Improved audio during voice calls.

    It's still 2.2, it's a system update. It's not Gingerbread.

    Hero, are you rooted? If you are go back to stock and then try it.

    I'm really surprised that this thread isn't jumping. I mean this is an update Pro people, get on board. I would have installed it hours ago.

    Can we use re-root after installing this? Will we lose root?

    Are you uninstalling the boot strap? That's where clockwork is, I think if you uninstall that you should be able to install the update.

    Still no luck. I tried uninstalling everything, went through the computer, completely removed root and nothing. I'll just have to wait and see if someone posts the update.

    I downloaded it last night and now my Outlook exchange mail account shows no messages. I can send an email from my Droid Pro Outlook account but it does not receive any.

    Checked with corporate IT and there were no changes overnight to our corporate email system. My personal POP mail still works. Also Calendar is not synching from corporate back to the Droid or from the Droid.

    Even more disturbing is the phone is running Hot and I can not get the charge above 20%:icon_evil:

    I have restarted severl times and all the settings are pre update.

    No need to reboot. If you wait long enough your Pro will do it on its own at random.

    when I go to system updates it says system is updated... I am at 2.2.1 on the droid. There is nothing on there to force update. I must be missing something. Any ideas?

    Updated just fine, however I severely dislike the way it looks, the dock shortcuts, and the way it updated/ organized my contacts. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to hide people again, and I don't like how everything is large, square, and in your face. I picked the Pro because of it's softer look, simpler look.
    Is there any way to change the way everything looks, or am I stuck until the next update?
