We haven’t heard much about the Motorola Cliq 2 getting its long awaited Android 2.3 Gingerbread update since nice a leak last summer, until now. It looks like Motorola has already started testing the new software on the Cliq 2 and is now looking for testers via their support forums. They will select 1000 testers to receive the Cliq 2 update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread and if everything goes well they will release the update within a week of testing.
We are pleased to see that the device is being updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread although you have to wonder why some devices take so long to get updates to an older OS. This being said we can assume this will be the last update for the Cliq 2 unless maintenance releases are created for fixes here and there.
While the Cliq 2 isn’t among the popular most popular phones, those that have it will be getting the Gingerbread update soon. There was a leaked Gingerbread ROM that has been said to be the actual Gingerbread software from Motorola.
This official ROM that has been leaked will not be released to the public until those that have it achieve root on it. Due to demand they may not have root on the build for a while now but even with a delay I would assume it will be a few weeks worst case.
As we get more information on the Official Gingerbread update and/or the rooted Gingerbread build, we will let you know here at Android Advice.
