Jelly Bean is not a new inneration of the os, it just an upgrade to ics. I think it would be up to verizon.
I'm sure with all the talented ppl around that we'll get a JB ROM, especially if it uses the same kernel. Which leads to my point...it wouldn't be as great a jump as GB>ICS so why not?
I really can't see the bionic not getting JB its just an extension of ICS and since the razr and d4 are so close to the bionic I bet we all get it in a few months ok maybe 6 months to a year. IHey I'm an optomist.
Only way to get fully functional JB is if Motorola gives us a JB rom (doubtful) or they unlock our bootloader. Beside that we might get some hybrid of it using an ICS kernel. That JB kernel is more important than people give credit. Without it I don't think we will ever get a fully functional and stable Google Now. I am sure the JB kernel also has a hand in how Project Butter work. The only use over ICS I see is having better widget handling while have other important things broken.

I agree. ICS is a far more drastic change from GB. JB builds off of ICS so it shouldn't take as long to update. Plus last year Google announced that the major OEM's (including Motorola) agreed to provide OS updates for 18 months from a phone's release and now that Google owns Motorola, I think they'll make sure they live up to that agreement.Originally Posted by Bigv5150
I wanna say that I appreciate all the feedback. I see no reason why the bionic shouldn't get the update except, as some have said, the politics. If that is the case then I think it says a lot about the industry as a whole. I mean seriously, this phone isn't even a year old yet!
