    Thanks!! Yes I understand the waiting pains..lol That really was a shame that global got to this point and then didn't go over well...I know soon you will get yours! And who knows truly how ours will go? Of course we did get one post of positive feedback so far!

    So I have to register at the Motorola forum? And then what? Make a thread that I demand to be included in some cool testings? Sorry, I just feel left out and thought it would be cool to test things that not all users have yet!

    no you just register there. i have never posted there. not once. just when you register they ask if you are interested in testing. then when there is something available for your phone they email you. but since the soak for gb is out and i dont see the d2 ever getting ice cream sandwich, idk if its worth doing or not.

    For making a thread and asking what I needed to do to test it. Then some moderator said that I was too late and I should be quicker to get on it next time. I replied back saying are you f*cking kidding me? Maybe you should tell whoever is in charge of releasing the test to stop being such a damn recluse and send out e-mails instead. Let people reply back, meaning they want in. Then they can pick out random people who replied back. Instead of having us play the guessing game and miss out on stuff like that!

    Oh well..

    To those in question....The Soaks. Are sent in two ways...they will sent random test soaks...and they do have a sign up on motos sight..however..they don't let everyone that signs up get the soak...this is because they are probably testing different areas to spread feedback from all over..however a select few...(still thousands I imagine..) if you sign up now, or whenever you get a device, your chances may be greater, but I'm not positive...as awesome as it sounds...I will wait before dling...I need to flash daily and usually multiple times...lol

    Thanks all for your feedback..so root isn't a problem? I didn't think it was..the x was rooted and we already had rooted leak..So if your all good and everyone else is decent, we should see oue update by the beginning of next week...as I was whispered by a rep a while back..but their guess is as good as mine and yours..the good news is less bugs to no bugs, means update to come for all within a matter of days..hopefully and not weeks...woowhoo!

    Well I am stuck flashing to a Droid 2 base no matter what because I have the red-headed stepchild Droid 2 R2D2 which I don't expect to ever see Gingerbread. I am at my wits end with it rebooting at least once a day and dropping 3g amongst other frustrations. I'm frustrated not because I am impatient and want Gingerbread (a mere 9 months after it came out) so much as I want something that is more stable. But I guess a few more days won't kill me. It'll just reboot a few more times in meetings inappropriately, I've gotten used to that by now.

    Dude I believe the ONLY difference between yours and ours is the bootanimation and wallpapers and media..I honestly don't think you should have to worry about flashin d2 roms and what not...But I coud be wrong....anyone else know about this?? I'm curious!! I ha ve a guy needing cm7 on his coming over tomorrow and I was going for it..good thing were on the subject? But this is his backup phone and I told him I was almost positive it would work...he doesn't mind because I have a workstation set up for my lil side business of smartphone tinkering..lol

    Well the Droid2, the R2D2 and the Global certainly doesn't make it easy when investigating hacks either. I see lots of posts saying, don't use this on the R2D2 or don't use this if you have the global... etc.

    I tend to want to keep to the official release unless there is a compelling reason to go with something else. With most of the unofficial releases there always seems to be something that's broken or some tradeoff. I get OS hacking and approve of the act, but I think customers need to demand more stable releases of the official ROM and hold handset makers accountable and if there is an issue, it gets a patch in a timely manner. Hacking really goes around the problem rather than confronting it.

    I am for the soak test, and hope it pans out soon.
