    Since the Razr and Droid 4 ares getting their new update today, I'm assuming that we, Bionic users, will be getting our (904) soon. It is just another step to ICS.

    The .904 update is readily available now... I've been running it for several days without issue. If you're worried that you won't be able to get back to .902 if you manually update, no worries, there is a way! Might as well flash it!!!! dancedroid

    Yep I updated to 904 and it's great. If the ota ends up being beyond 904 that'll be even better!

    I've been using 904 for about 2 weeks now. honestly I can't notice a difference from 902. but that isn't to say that this isn't a good update

    I haven't had a need to try the leaked 904. My 902 Bionic has been working wonderfully. In fact, all three of my Bionics have been running fine with 902. I'll just wait to OTA release.

    The .904 update doesn't break anything from .902... why wouldn't you update?

    For me, it's because the last few times I've heard people updating off of the OTA path it caused them to stop being on the OTA path in the future. :p

    You are referencing an article that is already a week old.

    The update does fix things, most importantly how the data connection switches back and forth.... I used to have data drops all the time, I havent had one since. 904. Reverting back to the. 902 update path is simple, plug phone into computer and double click. I also didnt lose root when I updated. Take the plunge!!!

    You did not lose root? So I will retain root, safestrap, and eclipse?

    Yes, but Bob's comment about getting this update via soak is from today. I found it interesting.

    The Bionic information from that site is here:

    View attachment 49533

    According to that the update will start 5/3. We'll just have to see.

    P.S. According to another picture, BOTA refers to Motorola's Over The Air Solution.

    The dates make sense on the picture, but it would be nice to know if it was for 904 or ICS. I would like to see ICS, but seeing how 904 never got pushed I am guessing it will be that, or did I miss what they will be pushing on that date?

    There is a separate page for those that are getting ICS soon. It says gingerbread to ics. The Bionic is not on that page, it is on the page of units getting updates/fixes for gingerbread.

    Given the size of the file, it will most likely be 904.
