    Well if you haven't already been prompted, check your phone! The Droid Bionic maintenance update is available to everyone now. It's 54 megabytes ans should fix a number of data issues and camera issues! (camera seems better to me) A much needed upgraded in my opinion but download it now if you haven't already! For a complete list of bug fixes and features check out this thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/186572-droid-bionic-update-v5-5-893-coming-soon.html

    Cheers!

    I don't think it's the device, but the LTE system.

    Three different Verizon techs recommend that you keep your phone on 3G and only use 4G when you need it.
    While chatting with one of them, she had mentioned that we both had our updates within days of each other. I asked her what phone she was going to get, and
    she surprised with, "The phone you have the X2." Huh, you don't want a 4G device? "Nope, they eat battery like candy and the 4G LTE system is still not ready,
    bug filled.

    Obviously I don't know the truth of it, but it does make sense.

    That keep your phone on 3G thing don't work on my Revolution. It still loses data connection when set to CDMA only.

    We'll have to see with my stock, unrooted Bionic. I checked at 8:30 this morning and there was the update. Because I live in a valley, so any data within our house is iffy, but standing on the porch (in the rain no less) I got 4G to do the download. It's just about finished with the install.

    Silver,

    I am getting the same message, but assumed it is because I am out of town. I look forward to see if someone can confirm or explain, as well.

    to unroot or forever root?

    So, I just checked and the update is available. Should I:

    1. unfreeze all of my apps/bloatware and unroot to download the update? Try to root after?
    2. do the forever root thing and then unfreeze my apps/bloatware and do the update?

    If I forever root will I be able to get future updates like Ice Cream Sandwich?

    As it was told to me when my OG Droid was going from Eclair to Froyo, when you check you are sending a request to the server, which checks to see if the update is scheduled to come to you. If it isn't you get the "up to date" message. The one your getting is that the server is, well, unavailable to check. I've gotten it too, but it would be the "up to date" message when I checked again. On another thread, someone suggested a Force Reset to confirm the connection, I didn't have to.

    It's going to depend how your phone is set up.

    You all will probably get it soon. I downloaded it this morning. I love the camera improvements. It's noticeably faster when taking pictures and even opening the camera app is almost instantaneous.

    Downloading now. Interesting it did not tell me update was available. Will post after it installs if I see any changes better performance. My phone is not rooted. I do hope it fixes the phone not coming back on line when not in use for a while. I have had my phone not come back but green light is blinking. Press button on top left and cannot bring phone back. Only way to get back on is to pull battery. Has happened about 3 times since I have had phone.

    Dissapearing Apps

    Anyone confirm if this fixes the known "Dissapearing Apps" problem I've been having when I move apps to the media area? I've been waiting forever for an update to fix this.

    OK, I couldn't wait for an answer. I decided to go with the forever root method. I updated successfully and still have root!! Doing a Nandroid backup right now. Next I will refreeze bloatware and redo the WiFi Tether Hack.
