Here's my experiences; DX2 with Froyo audio issues were TERRIBLE. Music skipping was horrendous. Supercharger Scripts and the like helped immensely, but lag and choppiness never totally disappeared for me. DX2 with prerooted Gingerbread is what I updated to and while the music choppiness is still there, it is probably a hair better than what I had on Froyo with Supercharger scripts. For me, the phone is much improved over Froyo, but it is still not ideal and still not what I would expect a dual core version of the Droid X to be. I have yet to try Pandora because even my Droid 1 had problems with the later upgrades of Pandora, so I was pretty sure I would still have issues with it since I do believe Pandora causes just as many issues without me having to add that onto the phone too. Overall, I would say that the culprit here is more than likely the Tegra2 chipset. Simply put, I personally think that manufacturers have a difficult time coding for this chipset. I have no solid evidence for this other than the fact that Tegra 2 devices have had delays announced from as far back as April and the few devices that have received them before the end of July (eg, DX2 the Motorola Xoom, etc) all seem to have their share of growing pains. Even the latest release (Galaxy Tab 10.1) is not without it's share of difficulties. Edit: And if this truly were the problem, I can see why noone is willing to lay blame on who it is, since I don't believe either Verizon or Motorola want to be in all the blogs pointing fingers at a supplier like Nvidia. It would cause bad blood between everyone involved, not the least of which would be Nvidia taking egg on it's face, yet again. I am seriously considering not ever buying a thing this company touches again. I got burned on an older FX5200 series graphics card years ago... I owned one of the affected laptops in the nvidia settlement between HP/Dell/Apple... I figured their phone products shouldn't have too many issues... Edit again: One other thing I have noticed... I seem to get random freeze and/or reboots from the phone from out of nowhere. There has so far been zero commonality with what I was doing or what program I was running. My phone has rebooted spontaneously after looking at my contact list, frozen in the middle of a song, etc. This is not common... (happens maybe once every 3 days?) but it is somewhat disturbing.
