    Ok. I'm a complete noob to DROIDX2 and android os. I've recently upgraded and gotten the X2 and I'm very impressed. I'm wondering though about these benchmark scores. I've recently posted a 2759 on Quadrant and I think that's phenomenal considering it has had not software changes or performance tweaks. With overclocking wont that decrease battery and quipment life? Also, what are some of the most common "safe" and simple performance tweaks that are being done with this device? By the way...when the Bionic first debuted it was only posting between 2200-2400 benchmarks. That's with ddr ram, not flash. I'd to say the X2 is doing just fine right out of the box. And is GB is all its been for the X then dual core optimization should trully make this monster scream.

    We have become obsessed with hardware, probably because the tech blogs that drive sales don't understand computer electronics. Software is extremely important and nobody ever takes this into account. For instance, iOS can run better on a phone than Windows runs on a netbook. Memory leaks, bloatware wasting the phones power, etc are all detrimental to hardware.

    Motoblur eats through hardware specs like its candy.

    Pathetically true.. but thats what drives sales.. "droid x2 with nvidia tegra 2 dual core" sounds alot "cooler" than, "droid x2 with optimized motoblur and gingerbread"

    If the info is true and Moto is setting up teams now, it would be about eight weeks before we can expect a release.

    1. Teams have to be set-up
    2. Roadmaps created
    3. Bugs and tasks defined
    4. Revise the code
    5. Test in house
    6. Rinse and repeat from item 3.
    7. Once cleared by QA, a version (for each device) sent to VZW
    8. If good, add two weeks to set up and publish- If bad, go BACK to item 3 again.

    God I hope the info IS true. I'd rather have a rough idea instead of no idea, even if that does mean 2 more BS months.

    I rooted my x2 as well, froze the bloat, but I want to make sure I wont get the update automatically. How exactly do I freeze my updater. I used titanium backup pro to freeze the other bloat. Can I use that to freeze my updater? dancedroid

    I see in titanium backup there is an updater 2.2.2 and upgrade 1.0.0. Should I have either one of them frozen so I wont automatically get the OTA gingerbread update if it ever comes?

    If you follow the steps of rooting and taming the performance issues, the X2 is not that bad for a two month wait. Out of box though, the DX2 is weak.

    Seems two months is a reasonable guess- all things considered- assuming the issues get fixed.
