As of November 9th, 2012, Motorola is still selling the Electrify and Photon as CURRENT phones. Nowhere in their "store" section is it mentioned that both phones are discontinued and will not receive any updates or patches.

ROUND 3:
THE ICS LEAK AND THE THEAD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM XDA AS WELL AS POSTS MADE BY epinter FOR THE PAST COUPLE DAYS!

The official reason as to why this happened

FBI warns users of mobile malware (Google states Jelly Bean has protection that older versions of Android does not)
Cnet Article: FBI warns users of mobile malware

Support My Moto Campaign has been specifically mentioned in latest Cnet article.

A big thanks goes out to Casey Newton and Roger Cheng for mentioning us here at Support My Moto!


Over fourty articles covering Motorola's removal of the ICS update and over ten articles that mention the campaigns


This is the Official Support My Moto Campaign Thread


Support My Moto! at supportmymoto.com
A unified campaign backed by developers and you requesting Ice Cream Sandwich & Jellybean updates, source code, and unlocked bootloaders for the owners of Atrix MB860, Atrix MB861, Atrix ME860, Electrify MB853 ,Photon MB855, DROID X2, MB870, XT882, MT870


The main goals of the campaign is to have a unified front in submission of requests for Ice Cream Sandwich & Jellybean updates, source code, and unlocked bootloaders for the owners of all phones on covered by Motorola's $100 Tradeup Program.

What we would like to happen;
Unlock would make JB ROMs available to anybody that wants it.
Updating would cover more moto owners and thereby minimize the impact to Moto's profits and public image.
A clean plan of how the $100 credit is to work as "We're looking into it" type statements are very damaging.

The reason we ask these things is that it gives Motorola room to work with. Once/if Motorola decides to open up a line of communication then specifics could be discussed. Ideally unlock and an update would cover almost all Moto owners. Either way, both solutions would be of benefit to Moto. Even though I'm fronting the campaign I would like to see as many people walk away from it happy, or at least not want to attack each other.

This is achieved by filing Better Business Bureau Complaints, FTC Complaints, emailing The Consumerist and signing the petitions. These things and more can be achieved at the

If your company or employer has decided to remove Motorola from the approved supplier list for cell phones, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.



Please remember to submit Support My Moto to the news sites and tech blogs for coverage.
If you are a developer and would like to sign on, post "Count me in!" and I will add you to the list on the website and here as well.

I just sent an email to Consumer Reports and it went like this:
Quote:

CR did a review on not too long ago and gave high marks to the smartphone known as the Motorola Photon 4G. While I think that your review is fairly accurate, one thing you should mention to fellow consumers is Motorola's unfair business practice. Quite simply, Motorola posted an update schedule for upgrading the Android OS. The schedule stated for a period of a few months that this and a few other of their smartphones would receive an update to Android 4.0.4, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Currently, the only update it has been given is a maintenance release that only fixed a handful of issues and one that effectively locked the bootloader. In laymens terms, they closed the possibility for developers to enhance the devices longevity and usefulness. They effectively killed the open source nature of Android and its promise for software update support for the next 18 months, all of which were major selling points for most of their phones. In essence, they have effectively lied to consumers about the way they handle business and I would like for this to be brought to light, so that others may know just what they are getting into when dealing with Motorola Mobility and its affiliates. It is just very frustrating to have such a high-end device (that I worked hard to have) be left in the dark and abandoned by a company that I thought to be one of the leaders of the communications and development industry.

It could have been better but it's very late down here. Anyway, before I hit the sack, I just voted for this to be submitted to the xda portal and for all others reading, I urge you all to do the same!

I just offloaded my Droid Bionic and Atrix 4G yesterday because of Motorola's craptastic backtreading on the ICS issues (and yes I realize the Bionic probably will get ICS, doesn't matter now). While I wish you folks the very best, I can pretty much promise you that even if every Motorola device owner called them tomorrow or contacted Motorola in some manner and said "To hell with you..." it wouldn't change anything at all.

But, good luck just the same...

hoslayer13:

That was a very well written submission to Consumer Reports, kudos.

Androidcentral Photon forum I could post the same thread in the Atrix and Sunfire sections, but the moderators might think I'm spamming.

your doing a great job
BUT i highly doubt that MOTO will actually care about some petitions they will ignore it untill all of the users just give up

but if we all PING the MOTO site together maybe we can crash it a couple of times every week and cause them a minor headache !!!!


all in all a truly hope that we will be surprised by them and somehow get the source codes for our developers !!!

have a nice day all

Contact the mods at AC and let them know what the deal is. They should be ok with it.

Yes and no. We may personally not get what we want however seeing that there are over 400 new site and blogs covering the update BS the losses that moto will most likely see are not going to be small. That doesn't even figure in the possible losses from existing moto owners. You also have to keep in mind that folks in California have a couple things they can do as well (wink, wink).

You should have an official message to post on tweeter, +google and facebook, and the tag shouldn't be #motofail. This isn't a motofail campaign, it is supportmymoto... The tag should be that so that it doesn't get confused with anything else. If it is going to be a real campaign it has to be organized and it has to give that image as well. Just a bunch of angry nerds yelling fail isn't going to get their attention. Just sayin'.

Cheers.

PS: Good on 'ya for creating the site so fast.
