Default Motorola Fire XT (XT530) Software upgrade to version 2.3.5

I have upgraded the software of my XT530 device to the version 2.3.5 via the motorola software upgrade tool available at www.motorola.com/update

I currently don't see any improvements including bug fixes or feature changes for this upgrade. If anyone has more info on this, please share.

Yes, I have also observed substantial improvement in battery life as I am able extend usage for more than 2 days.

Vote here for the Fire Xt530 so that we get the attention of developers as this is a very good phone but with very poor software from Motorola !

Hey guys,

I am planning to buy this model but I need a strong push I guess Could you tell me how long does the battery last before O.S update. (In other forums some people said 12 hrs with 2G only which is awful, I wonder if it is as that bad actually).

Moreover, I am planing to buy it from ebay which claims it is unlocked, but it is not clear if the phone is factory or seller unlocked. I mean if I update the O.S of unlocked phone is it gonna be locked to a specific carrier again. What about rooting? Is it matter for rooting as well?

Thanks

ersinism,

Before 2.3.5 update, I used to get battery backup for more than 24h with lot of Edge/WiFi access and some games.
Now I am able to stretch it for 2 days and the overall response has also improved.
