    Hey guys, i was wondering if i could downgrade to 2.2 for my Droid Bionic because so far the Bionic seems choppy and it just doesn't feel smooth compared to other phones with android 2.x.
    Basically i just want to try to make the phone feel a little more smoother and cleaner.
    Also does anyone know when 4.0 will be released for the Droid Bionic.
    Thanks :)

    Pretty sure you can't downgrade. The Bionic shipped with 2.3, so it doesn't have the software stock and secondly, devs wouldn't be working backward, they're always ahead of what's released not backward. As to making it smoother, I haven't heard of anyone having a problem with their Bionic. Are you running a task killer or antivirus?

    I've read that ICS blur should be out sometime in January... I think... It's been a while since I've read anything! :)

    Which ROM? Also -- have you tried an alternate LAUNCHER like Go Launcher EX or ADW? They REALLY make a difference and Go Launcher added a signifivant amount if smoothness to my Bionic interface. Just don't go crazy with effects.

    If by update you mean applying one of the "leaked" update files, I would suggest you NOT do that at this point. The official OTA update should be out before end of the year and if you apply a leaked update, you may not be able to apply the official update. Android forums is are rife with folks trying to get beck to STOCK for fear that they will not be able to apply the update. I would not apply anything that updates the Kernel and Radio / Baseband files. A ROM is fine as you can always flash back to a stock system partition, but a leaked update is another matter as it updates the kernel and radio files.

    Hope that answers your question.
