    Droid Bionic Update v5.5.893 Coming Soon


    With all eyes focused on the Galaxy Nexus and RAZR lately, you might have thought the Bionic was left was for dead. That's not the case at all, Verizon has a major update coming out soon for the Droid Bionic that should patch a number of bugs and add some additional features. If you receive this update, be sure to sound off on in the Droid Bionic Forum

    Check out the complete list below:

    Email, Messaging & Data

    • Fixed lockup that could occur while browsing during the handoff from Wi-Fi to 4G.
    • “Data Roaming” pop-up message will display once when roaming in CDMA internationally.
    • Jump to the most recent message after changing the device orientation while in message list view.


    Device Features
    • The number of devices supported by Mobile Hotspot has increased to 8.
    • Fixes have been deployed to keep the device from becoming stuck on a black screen and requiring a battery pull to recover.

    • When connected to a Bluetooth® headset or HDMI cable, the device will no longer lock up and power cycle.
    • Improved cold SIM card activation speed.
    • “Low memory” warnings when using the Lapdock™ have been reduced.

    • Fixed issue where the device would automatically power back up after being powered down.
    • The following Lapdock updates were made:
    • • Improved stability.
    • • The display will not turn off after use.
    • • The calling screen will no longer be recreated, improving performance.
    • • Reduced frequency of the “Low Memory” warning message


    Call Features
    • Use a wired headset without the interruption of a high pitched tone.
    • Volume on the “Low Battery” alert tone has been lowered while user is on a call.
    • Within the notification area, the Visual Voice Mail alert stating the server is not responding after a power-up has been removed.


    Applications & Widgets
    • Playback media can be heard while using a Bluetooth headset.
    • Place a call to the appropriate recipient using the Contact widget.
    • Improvements in the use of the Messaging application.
    • After updating the contact database from the Messaging App, the Messaging UI will display the latest contact information.
    • When moving applications to the SD card, shortcuts to these Apps will remain.
    • Properly post and play videos to Facebook.
    • Fixed issue causing apps to disappear from the app tray when moved to the SD card.
    • Ringtones purchased from the Verizon media store can now be saved to the device.
    • Apps can now be launched from the “Recent” menu in the app tray.


    Thanks for the tip, Nathan

    guess we can say its about damn time?
    Rooted OG D1 running Liquid Gingerbread 2.6, Project Elite v6.5, Droid Concepts 12 and many more!
    Chevy No.1 Low V 1.1 Ghz Kernal

    A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.

    "Use a wired headset without the interruption of a high pitched tone."

    So did this fix the camera? I may have missed it, but if not, I think that's one of the things most people were waiting for!

    I used Pete's Root Tool to root, installed ClockworkMod Bootstrap and ClockworkMd Recovery from Rom Manager. Do I need to un-root to get the updates and then hope I can root again?

    Last I heard, any new updates will break and patch root exploit, so I wouldn't update until you know it's safe.
