The Motorola Atrix started pushing its over the air update last night. We have been waiting for this update for a while now and were told July would be the month. Just after a few days of soak testing the OTA update is available. Now the Atrix finally has sideloading.
Instructions to install the Atrix Gingerbread Update:
Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi
Go to Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates
After scanning Install the update
Congrats you have Gingerbread
With the Bionic coming out soon the Atrix 4G needed this update to stay ahead of the game. Let us know how the update goes for you.
Currently the Atrix 4G Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) Update is slated for a July 2011 release. AT&T and Motorola after testing the Gingerbread build for a few weeks now have very few bugs to finish fixing. The new update will have a few changes to your Motorola Atrix 4G.
Atrix 4G Update will Include:
Android Gingerbread 2.3.3
New version of Motoblur UI
iOS looking dock at the bottom
Sideloading will be enabled (unknown sources)
While Atrix users wont be getting the current 2.3.4 update this is a huge plus for Atrix users. Finally one of the most powerful smartphones available to date will get a little closer to the function it is capable of.
Let us know how you like your Atrix or what you think of the update that will be OTA in July.
