Motorola Atrix Gingerbread Update Ready To Go

Posted on Jul 24 2011 - 12:02am by Kyle

Motorola Atrix users on AT&T will be rejoiced to find the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update available on their handsets now.

The Gingerbread update brings HD 1080p video playback, an enhanced and simpler home screen and an update user interface. Developer’s and fans of rooting phones will also be pleasantly surprised that this update unlocks the boot-loader. Both HTC and Motorola have recently come under fire by the development community for having locked bootloaders and quickly changed their position. Motorola recently responded to developers by saying they would release phones in the 3rd and 4rth quarter with unlocked bootloaders. They made no reference to going back and unlocking the bootloaders of previously released Android devices.

Gottabemobile has reported they’ve tested the AT&T build of Gingerbread and the unlocked bootloader is definitely there.  To find the update go to settings>About Phone> update

    Ok, nice job but what about the Atrix users in Europe (the UK specifically), when do we expect the update considering Motorola promised a ‘simultaneous’ US and European update pushout???

    Im on T-Mobile but they haven’t even acknowledged the Gingerbread availability.
