The launch of Motorola Droid X was one of the most-anticipated. It hit the stores with Android 2.1 on board, and eventually got an update for Android 2.2 Froyo. Agreed, the update introduced certain enhancements in terms of software; but now the device seems to be getting attention again, but for wrong reasons because the software enhancements on the device also brought with them a series of issues. As damage control, the company began posting solutions for resolving some of these issues on its support forum.

One of the most common complaints from users of Motorola Droid X Froyo is the Moto logo that refuses to go after a reboot, or stays too long out there for comfort. Motorola is understood to have figured out a way to get around this issue and has actively pursued it in its support forum. So, we can expect a permanent fix for that in the company’s next update.

Random rebooting is another major concern users expressed after the Froyo update. Other bugs include unstable Wi-fi connection and battery manager force close errors. There’s one more, the media may suddenly stop playing and throw a message at you saying, “sorry the player does not support this type of audio file”. A Motorola employee Matt has suggested certain fixes to these known issues in the company’s support forum. And here’s word (read assurance) coming straight from the company for users of 2.2 for Droid X grappling with these issues:

  • Stuck on Moto logo after reboot: “…A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release”.
  • Random rebooting: “…We do have improvements coming that address and eliminate identified panic states. They will be distributed in a future software release.”
  • Wi-fi connection and stability issues: “…Improvements in Wi-fi 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: “…A reboot will restore full media function, but not permanently. 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.”

So, that’s about it for now, an assurance that the company is feverishly working on fixing all known bugs. But we don’t have word yet on when Motorola plans to release the software update. Watch this space for more.
