Verizon Documentation Reveals December 11th Firmware Fix for Droid / HTC Eris

Following up on the myriad of Motorola Droid issues this week, a recently leaked Technical Bulletin has surfaced that clearly spells out all of the major issues Droid owners have been complaining about since launch(speaker echo/audio problems and recent autofocus problems found on the camera) and what steps will be taken to address them, culminating in a large firmware update.

The update is scheduled for release on December 11th following Motorola’s own recent confirmation of such an update for the Droid’s camera issues this morning, which is a part of the same larger update.

The Droid Eris will also receive its oen update to address issues with the Sense UI as well as other general bugfixes.

    I can confirm one of my Droids was bitten badly by the echo and lost audio issues… bad enough we had to have it replaced. The replacement still has those issues, but to a far lesser degree.

    The eris does have battery issues. The only fix is to return the eris to send a message to verizon.
