Motorola knows what’s wrong with your Froyo-powered Droid X

The Android 2.2 Froyo update for Verizon’s Motorola Droid X was one hotly anticipated software package. And it got released into the wild last month.

Since the update was deployed, numerous issues with it started to surface as people were (and still are) experiencing a multitude of bugs, some small, some rather annoying.

A thread over at Motorola’s support forums shows that Moto employees are aware of the issues and are actively working on fixing them. Following is a collection of the most important bugs that were acknowledged by Motorola along with an employee’s comments on each one:

  • Stuck on Moto logo after reboot – this was tough on a few owners. Very sorry about that. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release.
  • Random rebooting – while there always seem to be new conditions that can cause an electronic device to panic, we do have improvements coming that address and eliminate identified panic states. They will be distributed in a future software release.
  • WiFi connection and stability – improvements in WiFi have been developed, to address several problem areas. They will be distributed in a future software release.
  • Battery Manager “force close” errors – under some circumstances, pressing the battery icon under Menu > Settings > Battery Manager results in a forced close error. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release.
  • Media won’t play – includes “sorry the player does not support this type of audio file,” custom ringtone stop working, video won’t play, etc., until after a reboot. We believe we have identified the cause of these errors. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release.
  • Music files cutting off the final four seconds or so – a solution has been developed. It will be distributed in a future software release.

The recurring keywords here? “Will be distributed in a future software release”. So it’s time to start impatiently waiting for a software upgrade for the Droid X all over again. At least Motorola are being honest and open about these issues and are working on solutions.
