(Updated: Only Available To Beta Users) Motorola Cliq Update Available Now

Update: Apparently this was a “soak” update, meaning beta and Motorola has yanked the page. Someone apparently got a little vengeance on Moto by leaking page to the masses, not quite what Moto had in mind for the beta testers we’re sure!

Motorola CLIQ owners rejoice! Just yesterday, Motorola was looking for beta testers for the Eclair update, and now Motorola has officially released the highly anticipated Android 2.1 (Eclair) update. The update is now available for download from the System Updates screen. Follow the steps below to successfully upgrade your CLIQ to Android 2.1:

  2. 2. A Motorola USB cable
    Note: This cable came in the box with your MOTOROLA CLIQ with MOTOBLUR and also serves as your charger. You can detach it from the  charging adapter to use it as a USB cable.
  3. 3. A microSD card installed in your phone with approximately 100 MB of free space.To see the available storage card space, perform the following steps:
