    It seems as if there will be another soak test for the droid 4.
    that said, anyone else get the email from Motorola?
    Also if anyone from moto is reading this, thanks for not abandoning us few d4 owners!

    It's probably more bloat, and some bug fixes.. But good to see the device get an update.

    MAXXED OUT!!!!!

    I got the email, and I'm trying to unroot my phone, I'm back on the factory 6.16.217.XT894, however, I deleted the default loading system by mistake (I'd call it the BIOS if I was on a PC) and all that's left is the one provided by Bootstrap. I don't know where to locate an orginal copy of the Verizon version.

    I'm keeping my stock system intact via safestrap. I'll have to see if I can download the update with an untouched stock system, y'know, aside from being rooted and such... :p

    If it's anything like the past OTAs you won't be able to install the update with safestrap installed. OTAs don't like safestrap. Pretty sure you'll have to fastboot to be able to install.

    Yeah, I received it, got excited...
    but then thought about the pain of SBF and losing all my stuff and the ROM... and truthfully clicked I don't want to unroot (and remove safestrap).

    What hurts me is that when the OTA is out, I will have to do it anyway. Is it even worth it? :x
    Also, I want a quad-core 2G-RAM Droid 5 ... :<

    I'm right there with you. I can't see going through the pain of fastbooting to be able to take the update, then having to re-root (if the OTA doesn't break it), reinstall safestrap, restore my ROM. And CM11 is running far too well for me. I can't see myself ever going back to stock. I'm afraid D5 is a pipe dream, although I would love to be wrong.

    I dont see why anyone would take it back to stock with so many custom ROMS. D5 would be awesome right about now......I dont know what holding them back yet from releasing it. Time will tell..........

    I never got an email about it but I did just get a popup on my phone asking if I wanted to install it.

    Anyone actually installed it yet? I'm afraid to. With the last update, the physical keyboard had issues. It'd be nice if it helped speed up the phone though. I've been having some serious drag issues lately.

    Edit: I became the guinea pig and installed it since my friend who I like to make the guinea pig didn't seem to receive the update yet. It took about 10 minutes. Haven't noticed any difference so far.
