Motorola: “Do NOT Load the Leaked 2.2 Upgrade”

Handset maker Motorola is advising Droid X customers to shy away from manually installing the leaked Froyo builds making their rounds.  According to them, this could leave you S.O.L. when it comes to the official update.

WARNING: Do NOT load the leaked 2.2 upgrade that has been floating around on the Internets. There is currently no upgrade path from that load to the official 2.2 load that will be released by early September. Unless you have some plan to flash your phone back to the current official load, you could be stuck on the leaked version.

We understand that you guys get anxious about the latest and greatest, but let’s not forget, the real deal is expected by early September.

    Who ordered the bullshit sandwich with a side of F.U.D.?

    if they wanted to make an upgrade path they could. They are just punishing who used the leak that they let out.

    What a hypocritical company. You want to use an open-source OS, but not allow people to mess with it? I’ve never liked Moto phones and this is just one more reason to add to their pile of suck.

    Nexus One or equivalent on Verizon please!

    why do they do this? because if you mess up your phone because you’re dinking around with it, who are you going to call? them. so they have to pay ppl to help fix the crap that’s you’re own fault.

    if you mess up your phone dinking around, when you call for help they shouldn’t help you.

    now how are they going to tell how you messed up your phone? by doing just what theyve done.

    they could be worse – they could be like apple.

    Opiate, they are not preventing you from messing with the phone like you want to. They just aren’t going to support you when you dink with the phone the way you want to.

    I suppose you think that nexus would

      Not at all, but it’s MY choice to mess around with my phone if I like. They are the ones who implemented the efuse into their phones making it extremely hard to root and/or add ROM’s. Those people who root their phones know exactly what they are getting in to, and how it will void their warranty if they do so. Sites like XDA and Cyanogenmod put all sorts of disclaimers telling you this. If I brick my Vibrant from doing whatever, I’m not going to tmo and ask for a new one. So basically my problem is not that they don’t want to help you fix your phone that you screwed up, but that they try to make it so you can’t mess with it at all.

    Lol and the day it’s released, there will be several improved versions available, pre-rooted, loaded with goodies we want, and striped of bloatware we don’t. Son after, there will likely be superior AOSP builds available. So I mean…..
