    The update that was leaked out a few days ago for the Droid Bionic has now been officially announced by Motorola. No this is not Ice Cream Sandwich! This update will just be another bug fixer. The leaked version can be found in a cheesecake app near you. Some have reported that they were able to regain root on the leaked build with the Motofail exploit. It has also been found that you will be able to revert back to 5.9.902 using the .902 FXZ file. The Changelog is below.

    5.9.904.XT875.Verizon.en.US

    Looks very similar to the change log for razr and razr maxx. A few differences, but still pretty similar.

    To upgrade or not? i'm content with my phone now and i believe this means i would have to defrost all the bloat ware and then upgrade. root again and start over.
    i think i'll pass.

    I'm sorry, but if moto is hard at work on ICS, whats up with all the GB updates? I understand fixes are good, but won't ICS fix a lot of that stuff or are they just dumping ICS on top of GB so these fixes will work in ICS too?

    Root is very easy to gain back. Just use voodoo root keeper.

    I don't mean to step on toes here, but lets not get this started lol. We know it won't be ICS, I know for certain that its not. Lets not feed the rumor mill.

    It would be awesome, but not the case.

    Sounds like another 3G/4Ghandoff improvement. I'll gladly take any of those.

    You have the right idea, but that's not how it plays out.

    Verizon has to approve all updates, and that can take like 2+ months if everything goes well.

    Just installed the leaked 904, haven't had much of a chance to test it out yet, I'll write up my experience with it once I get a little more time with it.

    I have some input.....904 is worse then 902. 4g drops out way way more. Sfb back to 902.
