    Ok, I was hyped up along with everyone else with Gingerbread for months now since getting my DX back in Nov. However, I am REALLY unhappy with what Gingerbread has done in regards to my notifications of missed called, voice mail, text message. The phone REFUSES to give me any LED whatsoever if i've missed any type of call, have a voice mail or anything unlike Froyo.

    Not only that, but half the damn time, it doesn't even show that I have missed called, I have to look at my stupid history to see if I even missed calls as the notification bar has gone completely retarded in even showing me the missed call icon, which just won't work in my book. I need to see every minute of the day if I missed a call and the LED to let me know my phones status as I'm a busy man and I dont have time to check through menu's just to find what calls did or didn't not come through. Froyo had this all working perfectly, why the hell did google have to go and ruin in it Gingerbread?

    Any one know how I can slap Gingerbread around for it to show my LED notifications and icons in the upper bar again before I throw my droid at the nearest Verizon salesman, biatch Google out for being morons and switch to AT@T and a blackberry.

    d/l light flow from the market.. its free


    its a little glitchy at times with continuing to notify you after you cleared the msg. doesnt do it all the time.. just every now and then. but other than that works perfectly.

    Try using the gb sfb file and do that. Lots if people are having issues with gb and im thinking that people are getting bad downloads. Even if they do the ota. My wifi is way better on gb. I've heard of people pulling batteries and doing factory resets to fix these issues and they seem to work most of the time. It wouldn't hurt to try.

    Sorry to here that. Makes me wonder why some people are having so many issues when a lot of other people are having no issues. Make me think if its what people are doing with there phones. You keep messing with it it will eventually bite back. Me 2.2 is slow and wifi worked when it wanted to and blur was bad. Now my phone is like new . So maybe one day you will come back.

    woah didn't know sbfing it back took that long. Most it takes me is about 3-5 minutes.

    Anyways your going to want to download the .340 SBF file, moto drivers for your X, and the newest version of rsd lite
    Once you've done that all you basically have to do is get into bootloader find your phone on rsd and the software and basically start it.


    There's a 2 part video to guide you through it. I personally think that a lot of it would be just useless information, but i haven't watched the full video so I can't comment on that. Good luck!

    It seems to me that the people that did not factory reset before or after the upgrade are the ones having issues. I know it's a PITA to reset, but it took care of my reboots every few minutes.

    And that should be mandatory anytime doing a major OS upgrade on these phones. The only real problem I would have is if apps I paid for didnt show up, or took forever to show up.

    New Phone to Fix LED Issue

    So I couldn't get the LED to work for anything consistantly, even after the reset. Well with a lot of digging, everything works except the missed call.

    VZW sent me a refurb and motorola sent a new battery. Should I swap the phones?

    I don't know if I want to go through this again. My current phone works fine and I am afraid the new one will work for a few days and crap out on me.

    HELP!!!!
