    Leaked Droid 2.1 Update Bricking Phones? | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog

    On 04.01.10, In News, Videos, by Kellex (online)

    Waking up in the morning to complete silence is usually not a bad thing right? Well today, it is. What I mean is that I had no beeping, no vibrating, and no Droid alarm ringtone. While flailing myself out of bed almost 30 minutes late, I grabbed my phone, looked it up and down, attempted to turn it on and………nothing. That’s right, my Motorola Droid is officially bricked from what I can tell. As one to never use that term lightly, I’m telling you right now that I can’t even get to the boot screen.
    Here is my most frustrating video ever…
    Anyone have a spare Droid they can send me? Maybe I should pop in a donate button to save Droid Life! Anyway, to the rest of you out there that updated yesterday using the 2.1 files we posted, please be careful. Keep a close watch on your phone today and let me know if anything happens.
    Nice start to the month eh?

    It was an April Fools joke, which he went on to explain later on in Twitter tweets.
