Admitting you have a problem is the first step...

Motorola has confirmed that Droid X customers who upgraded to the latest version of the Android operating system are quite the unlucky bunch. Unfortunately, even though it's riddled with problems, there won't be any immediate fixes.

An employee known as Matt on the company's support forum today posted a message noting all the problems that are associated with the Froyo update. These are:

- Rebooting the phone causes it to get stuck on the Motorola logo

- Phone randomly reboots for no reason

- Problems with Wi-Fi connections

- "Force close" error occurs when checking the Battery Manager app

- Video, music, and image files won't load

- Music tracks cut off early

According to Matt, Motorola has figured out what led to each of these issues and is going to release a software patch to resolve them. However, there is no ETA on when this will actually happen.

Additionally, these errors all only occurred on the Droid X. Every other device that has received the update to Android 2.2 seems to be functioning properly. And in fact, so are a lot of Droid X owners; these glitches only affect a fraction of users.

Nevertheless, to have so many debilitating problems is something not to be overlooked. If you're looking for an Android phone, the Droid 2 is probably the better solution.
