    Installed no problem this morning on stock bionic. So far so good. Does anyone know for sure what bugs this is supposed to fix? i.e. Are there Release notes or are we just hopeful.

    4g connectivity issues, battery tweaks, etc...

    Just remember that it's still unofficial, the official update should come out soon

    First post of this thread, but I would read all the posts as there are various ways to install it and even other links (like on post# 57).

    Downloaded the file linked by the OP onto my PC. Plugged the phone into my PC and selected "USB External Storage" mode on the phone. Two external drives showed up on the PC -- an 8GB drive and a 16GB drive. Obviously the 16GB drive was the external SD card -- the 8GB is the internal storage and you definitely don't want to put the file there. Dragged and dropped the file (without renaming it) directly onto the 16GB drive. Made sure to "eject" both external drives before I unplugged the phone.

    After unplugging the phone from the computer, I selected "About Phone " from the phone's Settings menu, then selected "System Updates." It did it's little "searching for updates" thing, and BAM! It found the update and all I had to do was follow the prompts. Took about 5 minutes (it did *SEEM* to lock up for a minute there, which did kind of concern me, but I just let it do its thing and it turned out OK. Just be darned sure the phone is plugged into the wall-charger before doing this -- my battery said it had 40% before I did the update, and after the reboot it was down to 5%! Imagine if it had run out of battery power -- I'd have a brick right now!).

    Anyway, it's now running 5.5.893 and everything seems to be good. I guess I'll know after a few days of usage, whether or not the radio and camera issues are fixed. (Those are the only two issues that have really caused problems for me -- I don't use wired headphones, and I rarely use the internal speaker, so I've not had any of those issues crop up for me.)

    I'll post an update after a couple of days...

    Might as well keep on bumping it up to 5.6.893, then 5.7.893... you'll be happy :icon_ banana:

    No. The official OTA is coming out shortly. I would advise anybody considering the leaks to wait until the official version comes out within a week or so.

    I downloaded this to my PC too. thanks to Verizon limiting what my Bionic will download and save on purpose. (If you get the download failed message that is the reason.) So I placed the file as directed (unchanged) in my download folder, disconnected from pc, and used stock file manager app to move it to the top level of the SD card.

    Did a check for system updates and it worked perfectly! I just followed the instructions to the letter.

    Phone did take a few (3-4 maybe) minutes to boot up and load when the update was done but not any longer than normal. And, to be honest it was quicker than with the last OTA I installed on my Droid2. It boots fine now. I was scared a minute...lol... looked like a boot loop but I just had to be patient. :biggrin:

    Thanks for sharing this! :happy:

    Either post #1 of this thread or post #57. But read ALL the posts as there are different files and different ways to install it. Like Speeding Wheels said, the OTA is coming out shortly.

    So.. Been using 5.5.893 for two days now and 3g has failed. The 3g icon comes up white but never turns blue, and I have zero data. 4g works perfectly and in test mode I was able to force 1x and it also works (turns blue.).
    Anyone else see this problem?

    (and yes I know this was done at my own risk)
