I am running the soak--- no big deal but a thousand times better than 2.3.2. Everything runs faster-- better.

Also..could you tell us what you were running prior? As in, Rom or were you back to stock? Did you have all of your bloatware installed? These are just questions I have as some say that you must have the bloat to take the soak..lol I'm just curious as I have in the past heard otherwise....

So you never completed sbf? You received the update running Liberty and rooted? If so, that's awesome...And yeah by the way, awesome dance, was that the cabage patch? Lol

No -- factory Reset -- just 2.3.2

Forgot the boots

I recently tried updating software, and it's stating my software is up-to-date at 2.3.20.

thats because its just in the soak right now. not everyone has 2.3.3 yet

Right, but they stated they never signed up for the soak, and I didn't realize that Motorola randomly chooses some D2 users aswell.

They randomly chose me but still had to sign up and fill out for the soak. Nobody should make a big thing of this - hope it goes through and everyone gets it

It's technically already gone through if they're soaking it. I've never seen them retract software after a soak.

I am in the soak. Got my email about it being released and hadn't had time to sbf back to froyo. Then this morning I got this email.......

"After further investigation, we have discovered that your Droid 2 is not on > final software, but on a pre-release build. Because of this, you won't be > able to receive the upgrade to Gingerbread over the air. > > Can you tell me how you came by your Droid 2? Maybe we can figure out a way > to get it updated. Please reply back. > > Because of this issue, I am removing you from the trial as well"

I am running zombiestomped. should I respond to the email? Thoughts?

That's pretty weird. I would sbf back, and respond and say are you sure? My phone seems to be completely stock. Just to see what happens.

Applied the gingerbread update and was pleasantly surprised to see that the radiocom wireless tether hack was still functional

Very happy with the OTA update. Really easy to root. The only complaint I have is that JRummy16's Android Overclock isn't working right with it. Other than that it is a great update, especially after root.
