Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread OTA Update Available for Motorola Atrix 2

While it may not be Ice Cream Sandwich just yet, Motorola has released an official OTA update for the Atrix 2 that updates the OS to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread and brings several improvements and bug fixes to this popular dual-core device.

The update includes:

  • Significant improvements and fixes to the camera app
  • Enhanced keyboard
  • Visual Voicemail (by AT&T)
  • Cloud syncing of text messages and call log (by AT&T)
  • Improvements to Wireless Hotspot and Webtop
  • Haptic feedback problems fixed
  • Decreased call ending lag
  • Significantly reduced RAM usage, improving performance
  • Possibly more…

As of now, a direct rooting method for this version isn’t available so by flashing it directly, you will lose root and will not be able to gain root till a method is churned out by the developers. However, there is a way to retain root when updating to 2.3.6 if you are already on rooted 2.3.5. The instructions for that can be found in this forum thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
