By on July 23rd, 2011

Motorola has finally started rolling out the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread update for its first dual-core phone the Atrix 4G. The Atrix 4G was announced way back at the starting of 2011 with FroYo on-board, and was supposed to get its Gingerbread update sometime soon.

The Gingerbread update for the Atrix 4G brings with it a host of welcome changes, including better system performance and stability, along with improved battery life. Other enhancements include an improved Gallery and Music application, and a new version of MotoBLUR UI, with a new dock. The update will also bring the ability to side-load apps on the Atrix 4G i.e. to install apps other than from Android Market.

Atrix 4G owners should also expect a speed improvement in the Webtop mode of the handset. Firefox 4.0 is also included in this update, so the browsing mode in Webtop mode should also improve. They can also enjoy full-HD videos playback on their handset.

Users can download and install the update on their phone, by going to Settings > About Phone, and selecting the Check for updates option.

It was also rumored that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the Atrix 4G, will unlock the boot loader on the handset. Sadly, users who have already installed the update have confirmed that the boot loader is not unlocked post the update.

The whole change-log for the update can be found here.
