Motorola ATRIX 2 sees a new software update, but it's not for ICS
Let’s get it out of the way, it’s not the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update that some handset owners are dreaming about in their sleep, but rather, the Motorola ATRIX 2 is seeing nothing more than a maintenance update.

Requiring owners to download the update via a Wi-Fi connection, the software update brings forth some new enhancements, tweaks, and fixes that will no doubt extend the handset’s functionality even further.

Specifically, it features improvements to the performance of the camera, the installation of the Google Music app, enhancements to deliver greater device security, addition of emergency alerts for things such as Hurricane warning notifications, improvements to the keyboard, stability for Motorola’s Webtop application, better performance to its hotspot functionality, and overall device stability.

Of course, that extensive listing should appease owners who have remained faithful to the device in the wake of more powerful and 4G LTE connected devices on AT&T’s lineup. In the greater scheme of things, the availability of the update is surely warranted, but we’re certain that owners are more curious to know if the smartphone will one day see the light of Ice Cream Sandwich.

My wife's phone got the update notification last night. We were hoping it was ICS but she is still happy with it.

Lockscreen hasn't changed, and I haven't pried it from her hands long enough to see of Smart Actions or Motocast is on there.

So, did the IMAP get fixed so emails in Inbox and Sent get sync'd both directions now? Before no Sent items were sync'd and only read status of Inbox, no deletes. My main camera issue was loud clicking of the shutter, so what improvements are there? The random app dissappearances that claimed to be apps moved to SD Card when they were really just gone got annoying too. If they fixed all of those the phone wouldn't be too bad to get again.

After update I have problems with the hotspot, I must try many times to make it works, it says: "3g lost" even the 3g connection is ok, I know that because I can surf normally through the device in hostpot mode, also I lost the root, someone can help??? any ideas to fix the hotspot and root the phone again???
