2.1 Leaked for Motorola Cliq

July 23, 2010 at 9:38 am Leave a comment

Yesterday, Engadget received a ROM of what appeared to be an official ‘test’ ROM for the Motorola Cliq.  The over-the-air release is scheduled for August, but this release appears to work just the same.  Savvy users who want to try this ROM will still have to root their phone to get this to work.

The update features some new additions to Motorola’s ‘MOTOBLUR’ skin, a new music player, and a smooth web browsing experience.   A major feature missing from this 2.1 update is multitouch, and more specifically pinch-to-zoom, like in the Google Maps app and the browser.  Froyo’s live wallpapers are also misisng, though the folks at Engadget agree that it was probably done to save battery life.

Motorola still has some time before the update is officially released, so more features may still be added (or removed).  Check out the video on the Engadget website for some hands-on impressions of the leaked update. (via Engadget Mobile)
