    I know they're not being sold anymore. My issue is that if I'm going to be required to keep a single phone for two years, Google/Motorola needs to send periodic firmware updates (Gingerbread!).

    We will be getting at least gingerbread. I would be willing to wager quite a bit on that. It will just take time.

    Silverfang 77, I couldn't agree with you more, but unfortunately there is nothing in writing that I am aware of, that states that either Verizon or Motorola, has to provide any upgrades. I maybe wrong, and I have been in the past, and so if I am, I apologize.

    Even if there isn't anything that stipulates that they must, it's what they should do at the very least since they require us to keep our phones for so long. I hope they would at least be willing to do that much.

    Are you waiting for the Gingerbread update from Verizon? Not sure what all this talk is about here...

    indeed, this thread is regarding gingerbread (2.3 & 2.3.1)

    is there any new info on working gingerbread pieces? of course the keyboard is out, and a new music player, and a few LWs from the galaxy S, but is there anything else that's been broken off that yummy little morsel?

    Don’t see why D2 wouldn't get Ginger Bread, guts of it and the X are the same I thought. Hell the Global should be close enough so we can get it too.

    Ok so if they name the updates alphabeticaly then what happens when they reach Z? Just curious. Do they start over again or do they use numbers?

    Perhaps a new naming scheme? Maybe they could do the names of animals: Alligator, Bat, Cayman, Deer, etc.

    For the record: gingerbread is not a firmware update.

    Just a question but why is everyone itching for GB? Any specific reason?

    It could be because I'm rooted, but with GummyJar and Liberty, I don't know if I'm all that rushed for a Motorblur Gingerbread update.

    Is it the keyboard? Its been ported. Is it the black notification bar? The speed? The animations?

    Gingerbread because its the latest and newest thing, that's why mostly every one here tricks their devices so they can alter the softwear and have the newest and latest versions out there, every one wants to be the first to have it, its a luxury I guess to show off to your non rooted friends that you already have the rom update that they won't be receiving until a few months from now.

    That happened to me today. I wasn't showing off or anything but my friend saw it and said "How did you get the 2.3 update already!?"
    I'm running liberty with the gingerbread theme and a gingerbread themed launcher pro, keyboard and all lol.
    He might not ever see gingerbread either dancedroid

    Yeah, until they see the network speed that we DON'T have... (that is, if you're on Verizon's network like me)

    All I want is a music player that is not horrible and has a lock screen control screen that doesn't lag.

    Also it's new.
