When is Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) coming to Droid 2?

2011-03-17, 18:17 PM

Can someone from Motorola tell me when Android 2.3 software will be released for Droid 2?

You won't see any official announcement until it happens.  My feeling is the D2 Global will likely get it as it's still being visably marketed by Verizon.  But, the D2 is off the radar and I'm not a betting man. - MarkC

Motorola is usually good with updating their hardware. I mean the original Droid is still being updated, and it isn't even being marketed anymore. I doubt that Motorola will stop updating the Droid 2 until it can no longer handle the updates (and that won't happen soon)

There is hope for this possibly sooner than later...found this linked from Android Central:

If you are still holding on to your Motorola Droid 2 or Motorola Droid X , and have been hoping and praying for a Gingerbread build, your prayers have been answered tonight. The folks at My Droid World have landed their hands on a leak, that brings an updated MotoBlur to the table, along with the OS update. So, if you have either of these devices, you can update to this leak, which is unfortunately not rooted currently. Both of the devices have been confirmed to be able to be downgraded via SBF if you want to at a later time to await the official. Delay no longer, and get to downloading. [Droid 2 / Droid X via MyDroidWorld

I would like to assume that would be followed by an OTA update in the not so distance future...

The word is about a month from now it will be released because Verizon rejected it, according to P3Droid and TBM.  By the way, the moderator's hate it when you post links about leaks or information about ROMs/rooting.  Feel free to imply all you want though.

Ugh...sorry about that...I just found it and thought it was newsworthy and that others would like to know that it looks like it may be coming...

I'm not a mod.  And I would definitely be posting links if it were within the rules, they already editted my post and removed the links in my post when I linked to something about a droid 2 update back in december I think.

Purely observation and speculation, but the X community is beginning to buzz ever so slightly. If I'm not mistaken, the 2 and X are quite similar (internally). I've also noticed a reminder/solicitation of late in the X forums to sign up for the MFN (which is not a bad idea anyways if you aren't already). I like to see that things are beginning to warm up a bit. *Fingers Crossed*

Take it easy,
