Verizon and Motorola have finally started pushing the latest software update for the Motorola DROID 2. We received some information on this update a few weeks back, but today the update details have finally been released by Verizon and the update is rolling out now. This is a small update, only 14MB in size and we have the full changelog below.

The DROID 2 Global received an update back in March and now it's the regular D2's turn for some improvements and bug fixes. According to Verizon the update mainly is for some security patches provided by Google, as well as Google App updates. Along with those changes we also see a fix for out of memory errors, and random restarts while playing or streaming music from the device.

The full changelog can be seen from the full-sized image in the gallery below, but we don't have anything major here although a few with these issues should be happy to have them finally resolved. Motorola has also fixed a problem where the DROID 2 was randomly turning on without user interaction, a weird problem indeed. The update brings the D2 to build 4.5.621 and is essentially the same as the update the R2-D2 received a few weeks back.

The update is rolling out now or you can manually pull it to your device by going to settings > about phone > check for updates and give it a go yourself. Enjoy, and let us know if you see any issues after the update.

    Update went fine on my droid 2 but when my wife got the update on her droid 2 it is making the phone freak out. The status bar (at the top) is gone and it plays notification sounds every few minutes. Any suggestions?
