    Why should the Droid4 and Droid Razr have all the fun?! Now the Bionic gets to join in the ICS leakage party too! Last night P3Droid announced from his Twitter "WOOT --- ICS 4.0.4 is here for the Bionic". This got me and several others pretty darned excited. I was up for most of the night waiting for more news. I finally went to sleep, and when I awoke the ICS file had been leaked out to the masses. It was leaked in the form of a Cheescake update. The build number is Version 6.7.2231.XT875.Verizon.en.US. We have previously seen Ice Cream Sandwich for the Droid Bionic in the form of custom Roms. Developers like Dhacker and Hashcode have made sure that we had some form of ICS since it released last fall. All of these Roms have had one problem or another since there was no full ICS rom to work with from Motorola, and they have been able to mash up code to get CM9 and other roms booting on the Bionic. This leak should pave the way for lots of Stable ICS Roms.

    It should be noted that you must be running 5.9.905 stock and that you must flash the file via Stock Recovery. Once flashed you should be able to root it via MotoFail. It has not been announced whether or not you can FXZ back to stock. "There is always a chance this could take you off the official update path".

    Leaks always give us hope of an official release at it shows the manufacturer has made some progress.

    Update: The link above is down due to heavy traffic! DroidHive.com put together a list of mirrors that can be found here
    ICS 4.0.4 Leak (6.7.2231) - DROID BIONIC - droidHIVE Forums

    P3droid has also confirmed that you will be off the official OTA update path for now if you flash this. He added this as well.

    "P3Droid@P3Droid
    If you see any1 spreading fear about loading this leak, plz smack them with a dead, old fish, tell em to Shut Up, to many complainers out there"

    If history prevails you will eventually have a way back to official OTA update path.

    I just tried installing this on my stock (rooted) .905 install, and it gave me an assert failure on zumocast. Not sure why, or how to fix it, don't have time to figure it out now. Maybe I need to do a factory reset before applying this, who knows?

    this is AWESOME news!!!! I mean we knew that ICS was eventually coming to the Bionic, but had not seen any leaks of an official build (unlike just about every Moto phone that has come out in the last year)...up until now

    I'm gonna hold off on flashing this build until someone else has determined that you can actually get back to 905 in the event that this would take you off the upgrade path. One thing I'm excited to see is if the new version of webtop will be included with ICS on the Bionic. dancedroiddancedroiddancedroiddancedroid

    I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it.

    This is great news.
    As soon as someone determines it's safe to flash I'm on it.
    (If we can get back to .905 that is)

    I'm pretty sure once you are on ICS, you can't go back to GB. I am sure the devs will come up with a way to get us on the "official" ICS once it is out, though. I am going to give this a try if I can get it to flash. Trying FXZ back to stock, take .905 update and hope for the best.

    Nice. I'll flash it once I know a recovery to 905 can be done

    Assert failure

    I have a stock 905 Bionic (rooted, no mods) and attempted to install the zip file (as an update) through the stock recovery.

    It started "installing update" then after "verifying current system" I got the following error:

    assert failed: apply_patch_check ("/system/bin/loadpreinstalls.sh", 53c832fd893e26ac03decca85b1608dc86e8b624, f6e0fffff15f5e32ee406b8d5ecb3d386501f463)

    E: error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip (Status 7)

    Cleared the cache partition, tried again and then got this error:

    assert failed: mount("ext3", "MTD", "system", "/system")
    E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
    (Status 7)

    So, guess I'll watch and see how other fare with the update and try again later.

    UPDATE
    Did a factory reset, re-downloaded the zip from another mirror and still same errors... Can't get it installed.

    Anyone else running into this?

    P3Droid has CONFIRMED as of right now....there is NO GOING BACK if you flash this leak. CANNOT FXZ back....repeat there is no going back as of this moment.

    Now this could change over time. Who knows.

    Not to hate on the Droid 3 (I actually liked that phone a lot) but its not the "pretty much the same" smaller battery, processor, half the ram! A nice phone no doubt. I'm glad you love it. But not an equal with bionic, 4, and razr

    I bet the only reason the D3 isn't getting ICS is due to the fact that it doesn't have 1GB of memory.
    Great phone though.

    Motorola has already confirmed Android 2.3 is the end of the line for the Droid 3.

    Droid 3 has the same CPU as the Bionic/4/Razr and is clocked at the same speed as the Bionic. It's main difference is less ram (512 Mb vs. 1024 Mb) and no LTE radio.

    However...Motorola has already stated the Droid 3 will not receive ICS.

    Nice! Hopefully that FXZ will be out soon. I will say that once I flashed the first GB leak last year I never went back to Froyo!

    Anyone notice that this update ups our clockspeed to 1.2GHz? It was a nice surprise to find this out.

    Sweet sauce!!!
    Glad to hear that there is finally a leak for the Bionic! I haven't done any rooting of my Bionic so I will have to wait for the OTA.... but this should be on the way soon now.
