    It looks like Motorola/Verizon made good on their promise to get the Gingerbread 2.3.4 update pushed out to the Droid X2 in October. Supposedly, the update is going out today, and may be available as you read this. If you want to see if you can get it now, just go into Settings –> About Phone –> System updates. Here is a list of a few of the changes:

    So far the notifactaion light has been working better also. It's been working when you leave a chat open, and close it. The light now comes on where before it would never work. :)

    Killed my video camer

    I updated last week. My new Droid X2 now has a malfunctioning video camera and Verizon is totally useless. The rep told me "we know they're buggy". Motorola wants to keep my phone for 2 weeks without a loaner to reload the OS. They know 2.3.4 is buggy and they don't care. If anyone hasn't updated yet - don't. Just don't. Wish I hadn't.
