    From post on motor owners forum

    Baseband changed to N_03.18.29P
    Kernel changed to 2.6.35.7-g790a33c w30471@il93lnxdroid42#1
    System Updated to 5.6.890.XT862

    here is the BIG news to date:

    *** Gtalk has allow video option in it now

    Edit: looks like only that one person has got this update. He is on an eval phone. But its still early in the day.

    Edit: update probably gonna roll out slowly. Also Moto forums deleted the post i pulled that quote from. and the forum doesnt let you post anything info on updates or updates themselves. So terms of the site you will get the update when moto gives it to you. Hopefully we can get a leak and send it to the the ones who can maybe use it for root.

    That would be nice. There is no reason for GTalk to not work with the DROID 3, it meets all the requirements. Hopefully this can fix some battery life issues and the random reboot issues some are having.

    Video chat for gtalk works according to the guy who got it on the moto forums, unfortunately this update is only for test-phones and not the general public yet.

    I hope when this update happens it will clear up my green screens and the problems with the camera.
    *has fingers crossed*

    My main hope is that an update will lead to new root ideas.

    Yeah my main reason for being excited about an OTA update is that hopefully some of the awesome developers can use it to root this sucker.

    I was just going to call about the 3G issues today in hopes that enough of us say something so we get an update. Hope this comes soon. My Cell Standby runs about 37%, my wife's 47%. Way higher than our OGs.

    I was hoping for the next update to maybe unlock the bootloader... but I guess that is hoping for to much haha. although I read that the Moto Photon on sprint recieved an update that unlocked the bootloader so maybe eventually we will get it, now Im just hoping the update fixes camera issues as well as video chat and maybe the constant reboots stop as well!!

    Sounds like it is an update for the test phones only, no telling when it will reach us.

    Yeah i'm really bummed about this, on the bright side it means they're testing an update which should eventually end up on our phones( or in the hands of our developers ):D:D

    I got my D3 on 8/17 and the excessive blue tint isnt there on my pics. I tested stock camera shots with Camera360 and FXCamera and they were all identical, bright and colorful.
    My Cell Standby uses about 30-40% of battery.
    Today I used the battery for 7 and a half hours and it was at 30% left when I plugged it in. Battery endured medium usage (Live wallpaper, auto brightness, music on virtually on all day, no games played, display was on for about 3 hours) Pretty much just listened to music and spent most of my time on the home screen tweaking ADW settings. Calibrated my battery the first day I got it btw, I imagined it would last a lot longer than its been doing though, hopefully it improves within a week.

    Why would you need a a full size keyboard when you already have the best qwerrty keyboard of any smart phone?
