    Just letting everyone know, that this looks like a Soak test. I just got an email from Motorola.

    "Thanks for signing up for the Motorola Feedback Network test of software for your Droid Bionic on Verizon. In a bit of a timing surprise, you may already be seeing the software downloading to your Bionic."

    So doesn't look like everyone will get this just yet.

    I'm confused here, VZW says they are proud to announce a new update before it soak tests? I was really hoping this soak test would be ICS, since Verizon makes it sound like 905 is already official and ready to download.

    I don't think its a soak, 905 has gone live I believe.

    That email didn't say it was a soak - they could've been saying it's started going out already and just didn't word it well, and wanted to let all of those who signed up for the soak know what was going on... Just a guess

    "We will be soaking through the weekend, and I will also send out a survey, probably Sunday, for your evaluations."

    Would be funny if .905 ISN'T the soak test though, and we start getting something else *LOL* Could be a soak test beginning immediately after an official release, and the timing is throwing us off.

    That's why Matt should inform us as to what build we should actually be expecting. You'd think VZW would know what they have and haven't approved *LOL*

    Probably not, VZW likely just jumped the gun posting the PDF. At this point not sure WHAT is going on. I figured it might be ICS since Matt's email said "In a bit of a timing surprise" - which lead me to believe we might see ICS before "early Q3 2012"

    I could be wrong guys, but IMHO there's no way you're soaking ics this weekend. It would be nice for bionic users though. And the timing surprise leaves this open to all sorts of interpretation....


    In other words... here we go again lol

    Newbie Question...

    OK, so I have had a droid for the past few years, but just recently joined the motorola feedback forum so I can participate in soak tests... maybe the answer is out there somewhere, but just thought i'd ask...

    when you participate in a soak test, does mfb send you an email with a link or do i need to keep checking for updates or is it pushed out or what???

    thanks for the info!

    Assuming 905 goes ota to my bionic...I know I have to unfreeze bloat but will I need to unroot. I saw a news source that says I would have to but I wasn't sure if they were misinformed. And if I can ota while rooted then will root remain or will I need to reroot again.
