    Atrix 2.3.4 Gingerbread Update, General Questions?

    Yesterday I learned that there was an update available for the OS and I was considering running it because of all the good things I have heard. I just have two general questions about this update:

    1. How long does the update take to download and install??
    2. Has anyone encountered any possible issues and/or problems in doing this update?

    Thanks so much and please bare with me if this is a dumb question, I'm kind of new to the Droid OS lol.

    It took me about 20 minutes to get everything downloaded and installed. So far, I'm not getting any issues. The atrix is my first droid so im definitely no expert but so far, seems fine.

    Chunli is right, the average is around 20-25 min from start to finish. You should be good to go with no issues. Assuming you didn't modified anything and the phone is stock. Welcome to the forum!

    Question, if and when it becomes available for Bell Canada, will I lose my ability to create a mobile hotspot so that I can tether my Atrix to my tablet? Anyone know?

    There has been some issues with this on some cases, but according to AT&T and Motorolla you should still have that ability. You will have to check with Bell but assuming you are paying for that service I don't see why would you not have it after the update.

    1. How long does the update take to download and install??
    Think mine took 25-30 minutes.

    2. Has anyone encountered any possible issues and/or problems in doing this update?
    Tips:

    - Stay plugged in, you dont want to low bat when your upgrading, lol.
    - You'll get tons of AT&T contact bloatware after the upgrade.
    - Some people are having issues installing the update if they have rooted and installed a pseudo-rom.
    - Your contact list might duplicate
    - The news readers apps for the atrix currently with 2.3.4 has problems from not working to crashing.

    Thats it currently I have off the top of my limited head.

    - U

    My upgrade took approximately the same time as others and I have not had any major issues. The upgrade did remove my root privileges, but I assume that can be fixed quickly.
