    Puling battery

    I have to pull the battery 1-2x a week because I am unable to connect tip network. Is this common?

    Its common moto is working on the fix. I toggle my airplane mode off and on and that fixes it.. hopefully they can get the ota out soon!

    There is also the app Restart Connection. Again, that's just a band-aid until the update.

    DROID Battery

    I have to pull the batter every couple of weeks or a little more because the whole system crashes and I just get a black screen. I have a feeling this kind of thing is, unfortunately, "normal". I also lose the network every once in a while, but just a re-boot (off and on) re-sets that.

    Unfortunately it's expected because on page 53 of the Bionic Manual:

    Crash recovery
    In the unlikely event that your smartphone stops
    responding to touches and key presses, try a quick
    reset. Remove the back cover and battery (“Assemble &
    charge” on page 3), then replace and switch your
    smartphone on as usual.

    What system update are you on? Is it 5.5.886, 5.5.893, 5.9.901 or 5.9.902?

    I am on 5.5.893. Verizon tells me that 5.9.902 is rolling out now to customers, but they cannot force push it to my device. I am to ....waaaiiittt... until it happens. Thanks for the tips; that's what I do now! I appreciate any info!

    I take it you've gone to Menu>Settings>About phone and pressed "System updates." If it says that you're up to date then it hasn't come out to you yet. If it always says that the check for updates isn't available then you could power down, remove the battery and sim card, replace the battery only and power up. Then power down, remove the battery, replace the sim card & battery and power up. Then check for updates.

    Another option is the manual install. This is what I did to go to .902, and you don't have to be rooted for this. The .902 update should take care of the battery pulling.

    Get the zip file at Blur_Version.5.5.893.XT875.Verizon.en.US - Who Needs It? Don't worry that the name of the file is 5.5.893. Motorola gives the name of where is coming from, not where it's going to. Be sure you have the Motorola drivers installed from USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA on your PC. These may install automatically when you connect your Bionic to your PC.

    1. On the phone go to Menu>Setting>Applications>Development and check "USB Debugging."
    2. Plug phone into computer.
    3. Press "Mass USB Storage" from the list of choices. Two drives will show up. One is MOT (Internal Storage) and the other is Removable Drive (SD-EXT).
    4. Put the downloaded file in the root (ie main area) of SD-EXT (not Internal Storage). No need to change the name or extract it.
    5. Eject both MOT and Removable Drive and disconnect the phone from your computer.
    6. Power phone down
    7. Reboot into stock recovery (adb reboot recovery) by holding Power and Volume Up/Down at the same time.
    8. Select "Recovery" by pressing Volume Down, then press Volume Up to initiate it.
    9. When the robot appears, press both volume keys in at the same time.
    10. Select “apply update from sdcard” using the volume keys, then Power to initiate it.
    11. Using the Volume keys, choose the file that you downloaded (above), press Power and let it load.
    12. When the install is done, press Power. It'll reboot, but it'll be longer than normal (about 6 minutes)

    The whole process, from moving the file into the SD-EXT card to phone rebooted is about 10 minutes. Of that, 3 minutes will be the phone extracting the files (Step 11) and 6 minutes for the install itself (Step 12). A long time to stare at your phone, I admit.

    Wow!

    I could see getting into trouble here, but there is always factory reset and reinstalling any apps I have.

    I may try this if I don't see 9.02 soon.

    Many thanks!!

    I had not tried the System Updates! That seems to be working. Don't folks at these companies ever get any training?

    Thanks again for your help. Toba

    Glad to help, if I can. One thing about the factory reset, your apps are "in the cloud" so it'll be easier to reinstall. Plus you don't have to pay again for any paid apps.

    The thing about OTA updates is that when you check you're pinging the carrier. The carrier then looks at your version and IMEI number (Menu>Settings>About phone>Status) to see if you're scheduled to get it. If so, then it'll say you've got an update. If you're not scheduled then it'll say you're up to date. This means that if you're not scheduled to get in until March 8th at 3:47am it will say that you're up to date despite the fact that the update has been coming out since the middle of February.
