    heads up those who don’t want to wait and KNOW how to flash…flash a Thai version 2.1 (works for telus users) or the version for your providers frequences…this version should be a country that has 2.2 released then go to Motorola website and update via usb cable like they want …it will recognize your phone as THAI or the version you flashed and update it Cheers

    @Joseph : I was running 2.1u1 as well. I connected the phone to the PC and ran the Motorola software update and it picked it up. not sure y urs is not up. but one funny thing I noticed was that in the update software it said my mobile was made in UnitedKingdom. P.S: the update is not available as OTA 🙁 lemme know if any success

    same here.. it seems update is not yet rolled out for india.. i tried online using motorola software update.. dont knw y moto cant specify which countries they have rolled out, instead of mentioning something like “update rolled out in select countries”
    Anyways, now the options are
    – goto moto service center and check if they have it…
    – check again after 3-4 days if update is out for India

    Neither am I, It gets real frustrating…


    (March 16, 2011 - 7:36 am)

    I guess its not yet available for our region even m not getting it in Pakistan.. hope will soon get it


    (March 16, 2011 - 6:55 am)

    That’s because this update is for ENG (donno what this means specifically maybe a different region) if you follow this link. if you look for an update specifically for the region INDIA and read the PDF “what’s in this update” you do NOT get 2.2. This means 2.2 officially not yet available for India

    in Canada not work, always no update avalaible


    (March 16, 2011 - 1:57 am)

    Same here…
    it says not available…
    maybe it will turn up within next few days….
    hope so!
