    So far the only thing I notice is that the camera is quicker while taking pictures.

    Actually, it's 5.7.905. At least, that's what the official email said. I just read the article on Droid Life.

    Dont forget about the "Google security patch," AKA break root. at least that's usually what that means.

    I read on XDA that VZW goofed on the actual update page and accidentally put .905 instead of. 906. Idk, but either way I'm glad we're finally getting a new update.

    It's 906. I'm part of the soak test and looking right at it.

    After running an ICS ROM (AOKP) I'm having a real hard time imagining going back to Gingerbread. About the only thing that better on GB is the easter egg. ;)

    Looking at the changelog, I'm disappointed and frankly astonished that there's no mention of a GPS fix. You should see the kvetching on Motorola's D3 forum.

    Well, Microsoft Security Essentials detects the Gingerbreak APK as malware when you try and download it on a PC. To a typical user, a root exploit IS a security risk.

    Ok, ok. Sorry! I was just going by what the stupid internetz said. :) Anyway, I've been reading more about the soak test on XDA and such since I posted my first two comments so please don't shoot me!

    Well, that and a working video camera, front facing camera, no loss of audio when you switch on Bluetooth, codecs ... ;)

    I've never had a GPS problem myself since I bought the phone in October. I've run with it, navigated (just did two trips this afternoon, to a wedding and a reception.) [knocking wood]

    I'm pretty sure it will. If your rooted and running one of the current Roms you will be already updated. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct me.

    I read that the x2 was on 2.3.5 in the comments. Why are we still on 2.3.4??

    Because we're the red-headed step child. Even the European, Canadian, and Chinese versions are on 2.3.6.

    Quick question: what is on 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 that is not in 2.3.4? (I'll give you a clue: look here: Android version history - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

    If re-compiling and then tweaking for 2.3.6 means that the 906 update gets pushed out even further, I say bring on what they have and then work on the next one.

    There are no noticeable differences between 2.3.4 and up...most of them are device specific tweaks and fixes anyway. As Doogald pointed out, if you look at the actual changelogs you'll see that there are no desirable features that are "left out" in 2.3.4
