    I have a Droid Bionic with a bad ESN... I'm using google voice/grooveIP and Text+ for my phone and text whenever I'm near wifi. That's fine. But since I'm not on a network I can't get any updates and this factory OS is driving me nuts! I understand there are several versions of ICS out that I can load on the phone... I've looked and looked but can't figure out how to do it. The one post that seemed to outline it has been edited and replaced the topic with a farewell message. I'm lost... completely. (I'm really new with android but usually a quick study)

    Can somebody please point me to a thread that will walk me through (including links to the files) an upgrade to ICS? I'd prefer to keep my files and apps but if I have to reinstall everything that is fine as well. Thanks so much! ~Elizabeth

    Check out the link in my signature ... the HoB is the safest and most painless way to install ICS leaks. In most cases you should be able to keep your apps and data. Be sure you read everything first though.

    The house of bionic is closed. That is why the link isn't working.

    I'm not 100% sure what you've tried..looks like the file you were linked before was for .905 And I'm guessing the HoB is what you were referring to as confusing...this is a link to .232...the last version of ICS
    that will allow for downgrading to .905 since it sounds like you are hoping to be able to get OTA instead of running HoB.

    https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B5O5JKRZTsGjWXVabUYtMTh6UEU&export=download

    To apply any of the ICS leaks
    !! WARNING: ONLY PROCEED WITH FULLY CHARGED BATTERY !!
    1.) You must start with stock, unmodified 5.9.905 system. (Rooted is ok).
    2.) Download the update onto your external sd-card.
    3.) Power down your phone.
    4.) Hold down both volume buttons, then press power button.
    5.) Select recovery by pressing volume down then volume up.
    6.) At the fancy logo press both volume buttons.
    7.) Select "apply update" and then select the file downloaded in step 1 (Use vol up/down to navigate and power to select).
    8.) Reboot.

    I hope this helps you.
