We had heard that it was coming soon and sure enough, Motorola has begun to roll out emails to members of the Motorola Atrix 4G Gingerbread Update soak test telling them that the 4.5.91 update will be rolling out to them today, the update that is going to be the one that has Gingerbread on board.
Like all soak tests, if all goes smoothly, the update will then roll out to the masses shortly after the testing concludes. So, if you’re part of that soak test, here is what Motorola is saying:
- Read everything on the overview tab of the private area.
- It is advised that you have a battery with 50% charge or more when performing the upgrade. Secondly, the upgrade should only be downloaded over WiFi, as doing so over 3G could contribute to significant data charges** if you are not on an unlimited plan. If you have trouble downloading through your WiFi network it is advised that you try another WiFi network.
- You may elect to back up SMS messages and other non-cloud based content before installing the upgrade. Cloud based content and memory card info is maintained.
Supposedly, the update will be rolling out at some point this afternoon. Keep your fingers crossed that we get an unlocked bootloader with the software because that would only mean good things for other Motorola phone owners.
Exciting times for Atrix 4G owners to be sure. Let’s just hope that the update doesn’t start bricking phones like it did with the Motorola Droid X.
