Motorola Droid X users finally got their chance to officially move on up to Gingerbread right around the start of June. Even after a public test of the update, though, the release ran into its share of problems, including some reports we heard of it bricking users’ phones. Since then, Droid X owners have been noticing some newly-introduced bugs in the software. Now a new update is available with the intent of correcting these problems, but does it follow-though?
The release notes for this update, Droid X system software 4.5.602, mention dozens of changes it brings to the smartphone. Users who have installed the release report a mixed bag of success in putting a stop to the handset’s bugs. Some problems, like an inability for the phone’s camera to recall previous resolution settings, don’t seem to have been corrected. Problems with GPS performance, on the other hand, look like they’re finally gone. Then there are cases like the Droid X’s misbehaving notification LED, where it seems fixed in most instances but is still prone to act up in certain situations.
Users report greatly improved stability, with fewer resets, improved responsiveness, and reduced memory consumption. An upgrade to the smartphone’s radio also looks to correct issues with 3G connectivity. All in all, this looks like a great improvement for Droid X owners; look for it to arrive OTA shortly, if you haven’t already been notified.
