    I'd still say this is a problem with an individual handset, not the firmware.

    I never ever experienced it.

    Only time I've had problems with keyboard lights is with custom roms

    Has anyone taken the update and retained root?

    Since I didn't think at all far ahead, I had SBF'd just before the update to make sure I could install it, so I didn't have root. From what I can see on the X forums, some people say they retained root (via OTA Rootkeeper etc) but others have found that while existing root apps keep root abilities, new apps cannot gain root. So not full root even in that case, but enough for many purposes.

    ...and none of the currently available root methods work on this update?

    I tried the Droid 4 root and Pete's and one other that I forget. All failed in the same way reported on the Droid X forums (read-only file system errors in most cases)

    That's what I was afraid of, need Dan Rosenberg to take a look at these new Moto firmwares, I'm sure he can find a way in.

    Yes. And they actually go off when docked.

    Is it safe to say that the kernel/radio's are the same as .608?

    Back to the keyboard lights.....(sorry, been off for 1 day)
    There are several old "I hate gingerbread" threads on the d2g forum. Many people reported this. I thought it was an all-pervasive problem. As a matter of fact, this is also reported in the verizon global and motorola global forums. The soft keys and keyboard react "backwards" to ambient light, bright in sun and off in dark. One way to get the lights to come on is to hold the sensor up to a light source (i.e. find a way to reflect screen light back to the sensor).
    Either way, I hope this is resolved with the new update. Oh yeah, it sucks there's no root out :(
