    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    The soak test failed, and the update was repealed.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.

    I went to CM for the most up to date Gingerbread, and I'm quite happy to have done so.

    An official release is still quite a long way off for the the D2. You could however root your phone and enjoy a greater experience WITH GB than what you could get remaining stock. You'll have to accept any headaches that come along though (not pertaining to GB directly, but to flashing a ROM and redoing everything, perhaps many times depending on your luck and what you choose to use).

    YMMV, but I'm happily rooted and running a custom GB ROM. My phone still does what I need it to do, and what I would like it to do as well.

    I know I have an X, not a D2, but I have been on Gingerbread since the leaks first came out. I would do it again and I never had any major problems with any of them.

    My suggestion is to try a custom ROM though. I have had more problems on stock software than with aftermarket.
