Unbelievable, but my Milestone 2 has received its update to Android 2.3 AKA Gingerbread. When I bought it with Android 2.2 (Froyo) I though “Surely Motorola will bring out an update as soon as they can, as it will create brand loyality if the company shows after-sales support, so people will want to buy Motorola again.” Well, that turned out to be nonsense and Motorola did not even commit to any updates. I gave up all hope, but for fun I checked, and lo-and-behold: There’s an update available here.
Worked fine. Have patience and follow the instructions. There are 2 times when you think “now it crashed”, but it’s not. The full process takes about 20 min. Afterwards no loss of data (in my case), except my Bluetooth headset wanted to be authorized again. Everything is snappier now and looks better at the same time. It’s a worthy update and if it had some 6 months ago and announced when Gingerbread came out, it would have made me a Motorola fan.
