Is it just me, or does gingerbread suck?

    So I've flashed my D2 back to 2.3 twice because I figured I just glitched or something. I'm loving the UI, and all, but my phone is resetting itself at least TWICE per day, and I can't access my phone's gallery. I go to look at pictures, and the thing actually force closes, without any force close alert. I also have the blink light going off anytime I make a phone call, and the soft keys will not go out after I put my phone on the dock.

    Is anyone else having similar problems? Is it maybe a bad root job?

    Hard reset? As in restore factory defaults? I've never been 100% on the phrasing for that. I love gingerbread. It's just too unstable as is.

    GB is buggy on this phone. Froyo was buggy too. GB might be more buggy.

    Factory reset did not help mine.

    I lost some WIFI connectivity with this update.

    The only problem I have had with GB was app related. I had a few that were causing reboots. Mine is very stable stock with MXHome launcher.

    Yeah, I had a ton of bugs with Froyo. Gb isn't really more stable, but it's unstable in less frustrating ways. Seems like the D2 is just a buggy phone.

    Mine resets after gb too, along with a few other problems. Heard they stopped/delayed the first gb release b/c of problems, and it comes out finally and still has issues! The y even unrooted my phone somehow ota to give me the update! Craziness!

    GB has sucked big time on my X since day one. That is why, chances are I will never own anothe Motorola phone. Moto has totally ignored the X customer and left us swinging. So, they don't want my business, they won't get it.

    That's exactly the way I feel. My girlfriend, who owns a Fascinate, is always asking why I'm "hacking my phone." When I tell her it's virtually useless unless I do so, she laughs and asks why. Unless you're a Motorola user, you really don't understand how frustratingly slow their stock firmware actually is.

    The new iPhone debuted today, but doesn't have 4G.

    I have no quams about my Droid 2. The Motorola is a solid piece of equipment. Gingerbread has rendered the phone as a last option as opposed to a go-to. Really lame. I'll try the factory reset and try back.


    ...oh, scratch that. I don't have 4 hours to go through this process. (backing up the entire SD card and setting up the gmail and other mail programs again, etc. It will probably make more sense to downgrade to Froyo. Anyone had success with that?

    Factory reset won't bring you back to Froyo. Download EZsbf. That'll set you straight. Just flash Froyo with it.
