    [Upd] Ice Cream Sandwich Could be Close for Droid Bionic; Another New ICS Build Leaks


    Updated: Apparently, there is an even newer leaked build of ICS for the Droid Bionic that was found just yesterday. Here's a link to the thread, from right here in the forums: new bionic ics update 6.7.230!

    Not too long ago we had a leak of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Droid Bionic. Obviously it didn't turn out to be a final build because we still don't have a rollout yet, but that may change soon. Motorola's schedule indicated they plan to release it in Q3 at some point, which means any time now. Also, a new version just leaked that could point towards an impending launch. This newest version is ICS firmware build, .229. If you are curious to give it a try, here's a quote below with some more details and links. Also, remember to follow the instructions perfectly, so as not to brick your device.

    If you want to try the latest leaked firmware for Droid Bionic, youíll have to FXZ back to 902 and then install the previous 905 update. Only then will you be able to flash the .229 firmware. If this sounds alien to you, itís best to consult with the folks at Droid Hive. Theyíve created a detailed tutorial on how to make that jump, making available the files users will have to download as well.

    According to those who have braved the leak, their Droid Bionic seems to be running smoother compared to the previous builds. There are also reports of better battery life but the overall changes arenít too prominent, but rather subtle.
    Sound off in the thread if you give this a go and tell us what you think of it.

    Even though we are already to .230, we wanted to shout out a thanks to merickk01, for finding and posting the .229 leak!

    Great! another thing to add to my to do list today

    DroidHive has also confirmed that you can FXZ back to 902 from this build. So, I'm a go for it! Baseband hasn't been updated, but kernel has.

    I am a bit hesitant to update, only because of the possibility of another leak hitting soon (like with the first leak). So, maybe I'll wait a few days.

    EDIT:

    Looks like the leak was posted on the 29th. So, I guess there's my few days. What a nice Birthday present from moto

    this isn't the latest leak available. 230 was leaked yesterday, the guys over at droidhive has been working to get it all checked out and it appears that you can safely fxz back to 902.
    Here is the latest thread for 230

    Supposedly, this is the official ICS build for the Bionic.

    According to cellzealot:

    i hope it isn't the actual release, 229 was running so much smoother than 230 has. 229 and 230 are both very close to what should be a final release, just gotta wait and see

    Don't look over the fact that you'll lose flash on webtop 3.0 if you use docks or a lap dock to watch hulu and other type things.

    I still honestly don't understand all the Bionic hate. What exactly makes the Bionic a piece of junk? It's nothing more than the beloved RAZR in a different form factor and mine has worked fantastically from day 1.
