    Post GB - Tips/Tricks/Better Battery Life/And Everything Else!

    Hooray! Gingerbread is finally here for the Droid X! Featuring Motorola's new Blur system! GingerBlur! Below and in the next few posts will be the key feature highlights of the new GingerBlur, hope you enjoy!

    Improved Home Launcher


    Motorola's new "GingerBlur" (Cross between Gingerbread and Motorola's Blur) features a new home launcher with a much improved app drawer that now features app groups.

    Hit the app drawer button in the bottom right corner. When the app drawer opens up, tap "All Apps" in the top left corner to create new groups and navigate between them. A Market shortcut has also been added in the top right corner!






    Improved text selection and now with cut, copy, and paste!

    Now that we have Gingerbread, we can now cut, copy, and paste text selection! Simply long-press in the text field to bring up the menu! You will also notice little "handlebars" when moving the cursor around to select text.

    More account choices!

    GingerBlur now features more accounts that can be added including "LinkedIN," "Flickr," and more!





    Set up multiple home screen profiles!

    Hit the menu button from your home screen, and you'll notice a new "Profiles" option. You can set up 2 other profiles for a total of 3 different profiles, with seven screens each, that is 21 different screens you can have set up!

    Better battery life and power management!

    Better battery life! Just what we have ALL been waiting for!

    The first thing you can do, is hold down the power button, you will now notice a new feature, the "Sleep" feature! Its a low power state of readiness similar to putting your computer to sleep. Instant on, just hold the power button down for a few seconds and your phone springs back to life!

    The new power management is very nice. Gives a more detailed view of whats going on and what is eating your battery. You will also notice the new graph at the top. Tap it! And an even more detailed graph pops up!




    You will also notice, under Wi-Fi settings, that you can now select when the Wi-Fi sleeps, which will greatly increase battery life. There is also a new "Data Saver" option that allows the use of only downloading large files, email attachments, Market apps and updates over Wi-Fi only, that way you can be more conscious about how much data you are using.







    Field test of the new "Sleep Mode!"


    Please notice that this says 14 DAYS and NOT 14 HOURS. I took a vacation for two weeks and placed my phone in the new sleep mode, set it down, and forgot about it for the two weeks. End result:

    Bluetooth Bypass!

    Allow Voice Commands to be launched via Bluetooth Multi-function button while device is locked.

    Hard Menu Key-->Settings-->Location & security-->Allow Bluetooth bypass






    Data encryption!

    NOTE! If you are rooted, you can NOT encrypt the device, this will only work on stock OTA!

    We can now encrypt our Droid X's! Protect the data on your phone or memory card. This will require that you set up a screen lock.

    Better app management!

    There is now a new interface for managing your apps. With nice informative graphs at the bottom keeping you informed of how much storage you are using as well as how much RAM is being used as well. You will notice the four tabs at the top. Tap each tab to view more information.
