    Of course everyone know that Motorola is planning on updating the AT&T Atrix 4G to Android 2.3 Gingerbread since the smartphone manufacturer clearly made its intentions public last month. But when can you expect it and what will it bring? The guys over at Briefmobile managed to get their hands on an alleged Android 2.3 Gingerbread build for the Motorola Atrix 4G. They've also made a video walkthrough of the ROM which will reportedly hit sometime this month or the next. Since the build is far from being public yet all we've got is the video embedded below. There will initially be an Android ...

    The Motorola Atrix 4G update that rolled out recently, version 4.1.83, wasn't all about fixing issues, like the data connection speed of HSUPA. It reportedly messed up some banking applications while preventing others from working properly. The update included, among various fixes, some new SSL certificates which were meant to provide secure connections to servers. "We have found that the addition of the newer version of certificates affects all open sourced versions of Android in the same way that Atrix 4G was affected", they say. Among applications reportedly affecter are Bank of ...

    Available in the U.S. for over a month now, the Motorola Atrix (4G in the U.S., sans 4G in Europe) was just launched in the U.K. on May 3 with carrier availability on Orange planned for today, May 4. Andrew Morley, Vice President of International Marketing at Motorola, told ElectricPig when asked about plans for an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update that they "haven't announced timings but we have announced plans for the intentions". The Motorola Atrix, despite its powerful internals, is still running Google Android 2.2 Froyo but plans for a Gingerbread update indeed exist and even more, ...

    The story is long and contains a lot of finger-pointing, but essentially the Motorola Atrix 4G came crippled by AT&T to not allow HSUPA upload speeds. Some have theorized this was to allow AT&T additional time to upgrade their infrastructure before opening the floodgates of all that "4G" traffic. Users tired of waiting for AT&T to "fix" the problem now have another option and can unlock their upload speeds today! The hack requires that you've rooted your smartphone, have a specialized tool or two, and have applied some modified files. As with most hacks, this one carries with it risk. If ...

    Australian Motorola Atrix 4G owner Irwin Proud quickly discovered that it's bootloader was locked after his purchase of the device earlier this year. In response, he formed a "Groubal" page to attempt to get the attention of Motorola and convince it that there is a large subset of users who wish to develop for the Atrix and cannot due to the immutable security. The Groubal page has grown quickly, currently at over 8800 signatures since it's inception on March 31st. Motorola has since taken notice, and has issued a response: "...It is our intention to enable the unlockable/relockable ...

    Previously we told you about a heavily discounted Atrix 4G on Amazon that would cost you just $49.99 with a new two year contract. An even better deal has appeared at Best Buy, with the final price coming to a fantastic $29.99. Why the low price? It's likely that the Atrix 4G is less popular than the retailers thought, and so they're trying to draw down their inventory. The Atrix 4G, which got a lot of attention thanks to its impressive spec sheet with a Tegra 2 dual core CPU and an unheard of 1GB of RAM, was first available for $199.99.

    Last month, AT&T responded to complaints that Android phones running on its network were crippled to disable HSUPA for high-speed uploads. The company quickly went on the defensive, first trying to argue that it wasn't actually "capping" speeds by selling smartphones with this mode disabled. Perhaps it realized that no one was buying its claims of innocence, as it followed-up a couple weeks later with a promise to bring HSUPA to the Atrix 4G sometime in April. Though it's yet to announce that a patch is ready, it may already be going out to users, as at least one Atrix owner has reported ...

    For those searching from the U.S. today, Google's "doodle" features an olde-fashioned Ice Cream Sundae because it's reportedly the 119th anniversary of the "first documented" Ice Cream Sundae. If you'll pardon the pun, that's where things get sticky. Apparently there is quite a bit of controversy surrounding where the "first" Sundae was made. The controversy isn't new, the disagreement has been around for quite some time. So why would Google go on-record and take sides now? More importantly, what does a Google doodle about a Sundae have to do with smartphones? If don't already know, Google ...

    In a move that will certainly please hackers and owners of the Atrix 4G alike, Motorola has made public the kernel source code. The release includes code for the device's included drivers and utilities such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, as well as the Webtop. Changes to the kernel can affect things such as battery life, stability, and features. Utilizing the code in this release, developers will be able to compile a complete kernel from scratch and build kernel modules, which may lead to the ability to disable some of the devices security, or enable previously locked abilities. Unfortunately the ...

    Earlier today, FCC documents showed that HTC was working on a Inspire 4G software HSUPA fix that would hopefully let AT&T users finally get the most out of the company's high-speed network. AT&T has now confirmed that this isn't an isolated case, and that the Atrix 4G will also have its HSUPA turned on sometime next month. We had been concerned that Motorola was too busy trying to fix the nebulous voice call problems plaguing the Atrix to worry about upload speeds, but today's statement from AT&T clearly shows that's not the case. The carrier wouldn't offer a more specific estimation of ...

    With widespread reports of call quality issues on the Atrix 4G on both incoming and outgoing calls, Motorola has responded by collecting data both from returned phones marked as having this problem and from users on it's support forum. It is looking for users to fill out a short survey, providing info on environmental factors that may contribute to the problem (using a case, screen protector, etc.) Motorola's noise cancellation technology, which uses input from multiple microphones and a special algorithm to reduce the volume of background noise was previously identified as the source of ...
