Motorola Cliq XT Won’t Get Android 2.1 Upgrade

Christopher Trout:

Motorola’s dangled an Android 2.1 upgrade in front of CLIQ XT users for what seems like forever — now it’s putting away the bait indefinitely. In a statement released this morning, the company said that despite months of rigorous testing, the phone will remain on Android 1.5.

That’s OK, because Android is open. Cliq XT owners can just typemkdir android ; cd android ; repo init -u git:// ; repo sync ; make” and they’ll be all set.
