    It's almost 2/3 of thye way through the 3rd quarter, and no word on an official update. Has anyone heard anything new? If the last bit of news I got a while ago the D2G should be getting it soon since the Droid 3 was finally released.

    The D2G is supposed to get Gingerbread some time over the summer. They already did a soak test a few months ago.

    As for the original D2, there's been no word either way.

    The soak test failed, and the update was repealed.

    No, the update was flat rejected...
    And I believe the soak test simply didn't go through, people got invites and such but never got the soak.

    I wonder why it failed. Was the release buggy?

    Isn't it though? It just shows how much Verizon and Motorola care about their customers. :)

    I'm on a D2, and have yet to see anything other than the GB leaks.

    Currently running the GB leak. It's lovely and my phone feels like new... but.... the fact remains that I had to do it myself instead of Moto finally digging its thumb out of its ass and pushing the official GB.

    Murphy's Law of Flashing Leaked GB Updates states that as soon as you get comfortable with things, the official update will fly out OTA... but screw it, if that's what it takes.

    Lol the guy who got a D2 with gb on it probably got another D2 that was flashed to a nonrooted gb leak. I'm waiting aswell for the ota, but I'm pretty comfortable now on cm. Now, to be honest, only reason I want ota is for dev purposes. Yoink the libs out quickly to help CM4D2G...
    :laugh: I want soak test. Now.

    I'm not holding my breath, especially since it was pulled from the d2g. I couldn't be happier with cm.
