Motorola Software Update Review

Provides functionality for keeping Motorola phones up-to-date
A review of Motorola Software Update by Fernando Ortega

Motorola Software Update is the official Motorola tool which provides you the ability to update your phone's software version to the newest.

To start an update of your phone's system software, you should first make sure the phone has been connected to your PC by USB cable. Once drivers have been installed, the interface should show some details about the phone you've connected; namely the IMEI number, Model and Operator.

Once the phone has been detected automatically, you can continue updating if there's an update available. You should be warned that downloading from Motorola's servers may use quite a bit of data.

One cool thing about Motorola Software Update is its option to backup you personal data. This isn't necessary, but may be a wise choice if something goes wrong during the update. The backup sequence will actually only save contacts, media, messages. It will not save application-specific data or anything else not part of the core of your device.

It is advised to run the program and its updates only when your device has been fully charged. Ignoring this may result in a brick!

Overall, Motorola Software Update is a useful tool for keeping yourself up-to-date with the latest version of Android.

Motorola Software Update is software which can update phone firmware.
