    I have been on it since it leaked and it has been very solid for my phone. No battery issues as others have reported and data is just as stable if not better than 902. I'm just curious to see if I am the only one who is happy on this build.

    Sorry, you're the only one. I asked around and literally everyone else expressed displeasure with 904.

    .904 has been great for me. Better 3g, 4g data and excellent battery life. So, the OP is not the only one to have an improved experience with .904.

    .904 has been running great for me also. I'm also running eclipse 2.2 over it. A new version of eclipse designed around .904 is being worked on now.

    I think the happy people don't say much and the unhappy people ***** constantly...

    You may have to wait as it hasn't gone OTA yet so the official one may be a bit different.

    As you can see at http://www.droidforums.net/forum/mo...904-leaked-update-but-want-go-back-902-a.html not every one is happy with it. I just hope it doesn't ruin my phone as it has worked great on every version since I got it in September.

    Yes, I can't say we like to complain. That's because we LOVE to complain.

    You definitely are not the only one, I love 904, no battery issues at all and i never lose data. I've been running it for about three weeks and I think I like it better than 902. Not much discernable difference between the two aside from better data connection perhaps, though.

    I love it. The updates that have worked best for me is 901 and now 904 is better. 902 had issues on my Bionic.

    Could it be that since you are Running what you are told is Leaked software that maybe some people got a Bad version. of it.? That is sometimes a Price to pay when runing a Leaked copy... I can Name a file anything, and people will down load it and run it .

    I installed it somewhat reluctantly but haven't regretted it at all. Battery life is just about equal to what .902 was giving; and signal is equal or slightly better. I'll flash the OTA when it comes out, but at this point I'm looking forward to ICS more than anything.

    If the "official one" is any different at all, then it won't be .904

    By definition, 5.9.904 as a build number is only applicable to that one compile. If it is recompiled for ANY reason, it gets a new build number assigned.

    I'm back on 902. I found that 904 significantly decreased battery life.

    I had the same battery problem with 902, but after wiping the cache partition, it went back to normal. Did you try that?

    I can't remember wiping the cache partition, saw it was markedly different.

    After wiping the partition, I saw a big difference in my Bionic on 902. If anyone is interested I would be happy to post the directions.

    This is concerning me now, has the soak test begun? I got an email to take the survey and filled it out but never got the email back.. I thought it started today, but now I'm confused.

    I would say no, the boards usually light up when it starts. You will get another email inviting you to the 'private' forum on moto for the test and telling you when it will happen. In the past they start on Thursday, so it could still be today but who knows.

    I remember that from .902 but I remember it came the next day or something, and I was worried that I put in the wrong hex ID or some other error where I wouldn't get it. What sucks is the school wifi is restricted and makes it always stay at "checking for update", and the school has terrible reception so it immediately says "No check for update available at this time" on both 3G and 4G. Every email I get is just a sad disappointment at this point.
