    Yeah I would've been ecstatic a couple months ago but now I'm running an S3 so I really don't even feel like fxz'ing my BIONIC to install the update..
    It ran perfectly on 232

    It looks like, from what I've been told, just the survey email has gone out - is that incorrect? If that is true, it could still be a bit before the actual soak goes out.

    Anyone actually got an update yet? Or have emails just gone out about the soak? If an update has gone out already, what version is it?

    I've left my Bionic stock just in case!

    And usually, how long does it take after the announcement of a soak for OTAs to begin?

    This is great news! It's been a long time coming especially for those still running on stock (which is very few in this community). Hope to here from those who are part of the soak process (though thats not really suppose to be allowed :biggrin:) and can't wait until it is official.

    Awww I feel such bitter sweet nostalgia now for my BIONIC :(
    I'm so happy she's finally getting this attention.I spent so many days checking online hoping it was the day I'd get ice cream sandwich.
    I never imagined I'd be getting the s3 and putting her on a shelf.

    Congratulations all u people that stuck with the DROID BIONIC!

    :)

    Lets just say, in theory, I got on the list. If I was someplace with no mobile reception or had to roam, could I still just get it over wifi? Or does some sort of Verizon verification need to happen on their mobile network? Do get any sort of notice? Or does the update just show up randomly?

    In theory, yes, you should still get it. It'll be going to you based on your IMEI number. You could do the "Check For Updates" and it should show up. Or you could wake up in the morning and get an announcement that there is a update available. Just like an OTA update.

    That being said, there seems to be a few that'll get the announcement even though they aren't on the list.

    Or a few that aren't even members of Moto's support forum that will get it... seems like that happens every time as well!

    Well, I have a bad feeling, I'm in Vancouver right now. Still on Verizon SIM, but roaming. When I go to 'About Phone', 'System Updates' is greyed out, I can't check for updates. So if that's not part of the soak process I may be screwed. I've been thinking of making a shopping run over the boarder, so this may encourage that.
