Motorola Charm maintenance update in the works

Just two days ago, Motorola announced that along with the Flipout, the Charm would not be updated past 2.1. Motorola isn’t backing out on their word, but they aren’t leaving the Charm for dead either. As of right now, Motorola is looking for 500 candidates to beta test a maintenance update. In order to get involved, you have to take a short survey by… Read more

Motorola Charm and Flipout stuck on 2.1

It’s never a good time when Motorola updates their handy Android Software Upgrade chart for the worse, but here we are again. Last time this happened, it was the Cliq XT who would be left on Android 1.5 (ouch), and this time it’s the Charm and Flipout being left behind. Fortunately, the Charm and Flipout are both stuck on 2.1, but nonetheless, users of… Read more

Motorola Charm rooted

Thanks to the bright minds over at XDA Developers, and a select brave few, it’s now been confirmed that the Motorola Charm can be rooted via Universal Androot. If I’m not mistaken, NAND isn’t unlocked during the process, so reverting back to stock is as easy as pie. Of course that also means no custom ROMs yet, but Super User permissions are better then… Read more

T-Mobile officially launched their bargain chicklet texter, the Motorola Charm, today for just $74.99 on contract.

Jaroslav Stekl of iWebadroid found the Motorola Charm sitting in his local T-Mobile store yesterday, priced at $309 outright and $189.99 on a new contract with a $15.50 per month plan.
