UPDATE: This has been confirmed to be the EXACT same version as the current soak test that was pushed out the 8th of October. I'm working on getting a hold of the zip file for those who wish to upgrade early with out having to sbf, but so far no luck. Expect an official update in the next week or so, or instal it now! It's up to you!

Yes my friends, it's true, we finally have the current gingerbread release for our X2s. I've only been testing it for about 1 week now but so far I've had:
No random reboots
No lockups after unplugging
No music or sound skipping issues
Actually no problems of any kind
Edit: I actually was able to get music to pause but I had to really try hard to do it. I opened a lot of apps and finally when I launched Google earth I got a tiny stutter. Granted Google earth is a VERY CPU and memory intensive app, just normal texting or Web browsing didn't cause any music problems at all. Personally I say the problem is fixed in this version because I think any phone would stutter while playing Pandora and launching Google earth due to the network demand and high CPU/memory intensive nature of the situation.
Edit #2: The only identifiable "bug" so far is that sometimes after a reboot Android will report a slightly higher battery percentage than before the reboot. Honestly in my opinion this is not a big deal. A) It seems random, it doesn't happen after EVERY reboot. B) It's only registering about 10% higher and it tends to drop back down quickly a few minutes after the reboot so I feel you will still get correct battery reporting.
So, seems like Motorola finally turned out some decent software for our dual core Tegra animals. Obviously these are still extremely early observations but I'm pleasantly surprised so far.
Another quick note, this build is rootable with Pete's Motorola tools. You can still sbf back to 2.2.2 Froyo or 2.3.3 Gingerbread as well.
Edit: If you're interested in running this build, currently the only leak we have is in the form of an sbf file. Use this guide if you are unfamiliar with the SBF process.
