Motorola Droid X Problems: Messaging Bug after Froyo Update – Patch Coming

By Posted 25 Sep 2010, 03:21

We have some good news for Droid X users now, as Motorola has just confirmed that they are hard at work on a patch to fix up problems which have become apparent for users after updating to Android 2.2 Froyo.

As reported from Phandroid, one of these very problems is located in the messaging app, and specifically, outgoing and incoming messages. Users have complained that messages are not ordered correctly, and some texts are even remaining static when first appearing in the list.

Furthermore, it was only yesterday that we told you about audio problems on the handset, which judging by our feedback, a lot of you seemed to be experiencing. Hopefully this patch update by Motorola will solve these problems too, and also any other bugs that you may have spotted after updating to Froyo.

Let us know your thoughts on this. Have you spotted any new problems on your handset?

    I’ve actually experienced a decrease in fluidity and speed since the update. On top of the same.messaging issues, the lockscreen is extremely slow and choppy (far from an improvement to the previous lockscreen), as well as program freezing. When I tap on, for example, Dialer or Camera, the screen will go black briefly (less than a second) and the proceed back to the homescreen.

    A list of Droid X 2.2 official update bugs (found so far)

    - Texts delete but threads don’t.
    - Texts out of order datewise
    - Missing option to turn off lock screen (was an option in 2.1)
    - Haptic feedback is too short in some cases
    - Sliding between home screens isn’t as smooth as 2.1. Seems to skip a little.
    - Contact names seem to be picked from linked profiles at random. Doesn’t keep the contact name that is provided by the user (a bug carried over from 2.1)
    - My Verizon app does not install from Market. Downloads .apk file to downloads folder of SD card but doesn’t actually install program to phone
    - Some apps don’t quit when killing them with Advanced Task Killer (an issue for ATK app developer but I thought I’d bring it up anyway)
    - Transition takes a little too much time to go from Programs back to Home
    - No comma on the same button as the period anymore on the keyboard (was there in 2.1)
    - Needs an option to set Google contacts as default when opening contacts (I don’t wanna have to see ALL of the contacts such as Facebook and Twitter)
    - Social Networking button on Contact quick tasks widget turns blurry when widget is in a horizontal size
    - When in camera the side menu didn’t want to show itself in some instances

    I’m sure there’s more but this is it for now. I know most Droid X users have noticed these same issues and are annoyed by them. Hopefully Motorola with fix all of these issues ASAP. This is an awesome phone but these bugs hold it back from being even more awesome.

    After upgrade to froyo, my short cut contact’s picture is not show up(i use this feature as speed dial by pulling contacts on home screen) even though i can see contact’s picture in the contact.

  • bill

    "updating" to froyo basically bricked my phone. I got it yesterday updated right away and now i cant get passed the M logo. Thanks…

    • macroman

      Same for me. Removing and replacing the battery several times (no standard # of times) seemed to restore the phone to usability. It sometimes appears that this is not going to work and then, it does.

      • james

        Same here have pull battery out like 8 to 10 mins then most time it gets passed m screen. Then threw out day I can’t play vids or mp3 .then have to pull batt. An hope it comes on again.

        • Josh

          Same here. I need to pull the battery out and SD card. Everyday I test it out and its taking longer and longer to get it to boot out of the M logo. I had to let it sit with everything out for over an hour today before getting it to work again. I really hope they do something to fix this or back to BB I go.

    The moto clock widget's time stood still. It is not reflecting the current time

  • Matthew

    this sounds like A LOT OF BULL to deal with do you regret getting the phone. I have a iPhone3g and am thinking of getting an x for my next. Are you happy with purchase?

  • john

    No option to control media volume in settings anymore you could in 2.1. When typing a website address in browser no.com button.

  • paulshore

    I am on my second droid x waiting for my third phone to come. I have lots of problems

  • jr1

    cant stop pandora after upgrade

  • gturn

    not to mention not being able to play any of my mp3s or recorded videos. why did I upgrade to 2.2? that'll teach me for next time…

  • JustB

    I took 4 pictures just this morning and all of em showed up as a 0mb file and would not be visible…. I have the Mp3 problem as well… I just got this 4 days ago and love it, but these bugs should be fixed asap or im going to have some problems with vzw..

  • Brian

    I am having an issue playing all videos. I think I also sawmerror for mp4???

  • Angelique

    I installed the software update last night and since then I cannot access the market. It says “application is not installed”. When I go to settings and applications, it is not listed. Can anyone help?

  • kristina

    I CAN'T EVEN TURN ON MY PHONE!

  • killzoomer

    I dont have the Market app after I upgraded to Froyo it's not on my app list or anything..can someone help!!! =(

  • joe

    this is taking way too long to fix. mp3 problem should be quick. 2.1 was perfect. phone is awesome. what a way to screw up all the goodwill you could've had over the Iphone. I even found a typo somewhere (looking for it now to post). One button spells message wrong…."Messsage". I'll post once I find it again

  • Jenn B

    I just got this phone and I loved it at first, but the camera issue and MP3 issue have gotten annoying. I have to reset the phone at least 3 times a day :( Down right annoying.

    I was told by Verizon that mine was the only Droid X that is having this issue. Kinda nice to know that mine isn't the only one. Even though I'm on my second one in a week, because I returned the first one after three days of dealing with all these issues….

    • Tom

      I have a similar issue – suddenly, the music play cannot recognize any of my MP3 files and the camera basically takes 0 byte pictures. I had to reset it numerous times to get it to work. Has anyone been able to suggest something to help you? I'm wondering if I should do a factory reset followed by an update to Froyo before installing anything else.

      Frustrating.

    Verizon keeps lying to me, too, telling me *my* Droid X is the only one with problems. When I was standing there, returning the first one, the guy next to me was returning his third. I'm about to return my second one. I'm debating going to AT&T, or just trying the HTC Incredible. I'm still in my 30-day window.

    First phone: Screen went blank the first hour.
    Second phone (before the complete wipe): Would update some email programs, but not other (same app), weather wouldn't update, news wouldn't update, etc… for four days.
    Second phone (after the complete wipe and restart): All social media Contacts are downloaded – even if I check not to sync – AND I can't change what group shows (the Show groups screen is dead – no drop down).
    I'm on my way back to the store tonight. I will not be getting a third Droid X.
