Motorola Droid X2 Ice Cream Sandwich Update? Not Going To Happen (Android 4 ICS)

by Mihai Matei on March 15, 2012


This might infuriate the owners of the Motorola Droid X2, but it looks like Motorola might not actually release the Ice Cream Sandwich update for this particular handset after all.

The grim news comes from a fellow Droid X2 owner which filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau concerning the handset’s boot-loader and the Ice Cream Sandwich update which seems to elude the Droid X2.

Apparently the sender of this letter (see below) got a response from Motorola, making it clear that the Motorola Droid X2 is not going to receive an Ice Cream Sandwich update at all. Instead, the manufacturer will keep supporting it and bring further updates to the current Gingerbread version. Check out the full letter below.

Interestingly enough, although it’s under the status of “Evaluation & Planning” the Motorola Droid X2 is still present in the list of Motorola devices targeted by the Ice Cream Sandwich update, but on the other hand, the Motorola Droid X2 is not listed in the Verizon’s “to be ICS updated” devices.

It’s pretty much two for one and it’s becoming clearer that Motorola does not intend to release the ICS update for the Droid X2.

As for the unlocked bootloader, things are still not clear and Motorola pretty much maintains its neutral position in this matter, stating that it will be unlocked on other devices including the Motorola Droid X2 whenever the carriers will allow it.

That’s about it. At least we now know what to expect, and that’s pretty much nothing.

Kudos to DroidLife and Ivan for letting us know about the lack of future ICS on the Motorola Droid X2.
