Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread OTA Update Available for Motorola Atrix 2

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.
