    Hey guys, I was recently informed that the Bionic and the Razr both do not use both of their dual processors because they do not have the software to do so yet. Supposedly, this functionality is added in the Android 4.0 update. Aside from the vague 'sometime soon' answers, does anyone happen to be able to give a more definite time when this update will be available? My Bionic is currently unrooted. I do not want to void the warrenty on it yet. :p

    Nope, no official date. Sometimes you'll see a post of someone who talked to someone at Verizon or Moto with a date, but the next person who does that will have something different.

    Sometime in 2012, maybe in a couple of months, maybe summer.

    As stated above no definite date... I am hopeful it will be in Q1 but that is just my opinion...

    It uses both processors, it's just not fully optimized for them. My guess would be Q2 though.

    If they say next month, add two cause...I am sure moto & vzw will still have to review, test and approve these updates.

    Gah, Ice Cream Sandwich looks insane...I really want it now, lol. The UI looks a bit sleeker, and actual optimization for dual cores sounds even better.

    If it happens like it did with my OG Droid when it went to Froyo, somebody had gotten both versions of the install and posted it here. One was comparitively smaller and was patches to upgrade to Froyo whereas the larger file was a full install. Supposedly it was the version Verizon had if your update didn't work and they had to do it.

    Very much like installing the .901 update, although the file name was "update.zip."

    I have the Nexus and it is nice...there are definitely some improvements that I like and then there are some things that are meh but I think overall, it is a nice upgrade and of course everyone will view it differently...if you get the chance (and saying that you haven't), you should stop by your local VZW store and see if they have a live Gnex on display...I think once the update does come, it will make the Razr and Bionic very nice phones still...
