Verizon Motorola Droid X2 maintenance update now rolling out

A new software update has apparently become available for Verizon’s Motorola Droid X2. This isn’t a major release, so it won’t make your smartphone run a different version of Android or anything like that. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t update.

This new software brings a slew of performance improvements and bug fixes and as such is good to have. Notable new things include the keyboard now staying visible during text input (!), the device will no longer lock up or reboot while using the keyboard, the charging indicator will only turn on when the phone is charging, the Home key now functions as intended when the phone is in the desktop cradle, video quality has been improved for both video recording as well as playback, the password for the mobile hotspot can now exceed 63 characters, the Magic Smoke live wallpaper now works, audio has been improved when streaming music, YouTube won’t lock up anymore, and many more things. Overall stability has been tweaked too.

A full list of improvements is available in this PDF. The update will come over-the-air, so your phone should notify you when it’s available. Alternatively, you can choose to manually check by going to Settings > About phone > System updates > Download.

Full update instructions are available in this PDF. According to Phandroid, the update has already started rolling out. That said, it may be a few days before it reaches your particular device, so if you don’t see it immediately, don’t panic. Just wait and try again.
