    The 5.8.894 update is the official last maintenance update before ICS rolls out to all bionic phones in late January if u have not updated to any leaked ota's u will receive the following updates in the following order before you get ICS ( 5.5.893--> 5.7.893--> 5.8.894--> ICS ). If you go the standard route with the updates via Verizon it will take at the latest 4 months to be fully updated to ICS. Due to the fact that moto is sending out updates in batches an not all in one wave so everyone gets it at the same time if u wish to skip the long route u must have a bare bone stock bionic an u can download the 5.8.894 update from here ( Blur_Version.5.5.886.XT875.Verizon.en.US.zip ) an wait only a month and a half at the most before that sweet OS rolls out to your bionic. dancedroid



    ( make your bionic a happy bionic )

    Sounds good, but have the devs found a way to upgrade from non-stock 5.7.893 --> 5.8.894 yet?

    Also, thanks for posting the link.

    What you wrote makes no sence. Why would some people get ics in jan and others in 4 months. And why wouldn't moto send out the update to all the users and by what info did u come by that those are all official updates?

    How do you know this, if you don't mind me asking? I'm bone stock (5.5.886) and I wouldn't mind updating to 5.8.894 if I knew for sure that it is the last update before ICS.

    if ur already at the 5.7.893 u have to go the long route apparently the leaked updates were actually ota official updates we were just Guinea pigs an the update order is as u see it in my first initial post so u will get the 5.8.894 update but it will be through verizon an so u will have to take long route u have to be bare bones stock for the update i posted because they made it so no cheese cakers could get the update before the quote unquote final product was ready. so dont worry u are still on the update path

    What's the difference between stock, bone stock, and bare bone stock? I'm not sure which I am so any clarification would be helpful.

    I mean it does make sense, especially since those 3 have been sitting on the cheesecake servers...

    bare bone stock= no prior leaked updates or any system updates applied out of the box new
    stock= phone being flashed back to original version but the kernel/raido still the same
