    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.

    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.

    If it's like what happened when we went from Eclair to Froyo on the OG Droid, there were 2 versions. One was an OTA that was a patch to convert to Froyo and the other was a larger file that was a complete install. That one supposedly was sent to Verizon stores in case the OTA didn't work. Both files were available on this site.

    Basic question here: for these OTA OS updates, do we have to actively seek them out, download and install? Our are they pushed to the Droids automatically?

    They are pushed to your phone, you can try to manually pull it down by going into settings,about phone, system update. Hope this helps?

    A couple of things about OTA updates...

    1) They are RANDOM. So random that if you bought 2 Bionics the same day, one could get an update days after the other. Back in 2009 when the OG Droid was getting its first update, someone had set up a Google map where you could "stick a pin" showing where and when you got the update. No rhyme or reason at all.

    2) They can load in the background. If they do, when you bring your phone up from sleep (i.e., bringing the screen up) it'll say you have an update available. This is assuming you leave your phone on (maybe connected to a charger) all the time.

    3) When you check for updates (as 94lt1 suggested), you are sending a signal to the carrier. The carrier checks your version and IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number and if you're scheduled to receive it, you'll see a message saying so. This means that if you're scheduled to get an update on April 26th at 3:47am, your phone will say that it's "Up to date" even though others have been getting the update since April 20th.

    I am changing my opinion about 904. It works flawless with cm9 the 4/6/12 version. I've had zero data drops. Didn't work to well on GB for me. Aside from the few ics bugs in the rom. Battery has greatly improved. I had cm9 flashed before updating to 904. Not even sure it 904 effects cm9 but its working.
