    One of our sources tipped us off that Motorola is going to have a "soak test" very soon for the Droid Bionic. Our source further elaborated that this particular test is not a beta, but is actually for the RC of whatever "project" they are working on for the Bionic. More than likely the "soak test" is simply for an update. But, could it be possible these testers are lucky enough to be testing ICS on the Bionic? We shall have to wait and see...

    Thanks to our anonymous tipster!

    It's all opt-in. You sign up for forums at http://supportforums.motorola.com, and one of the sticky links at the top of the Bionic discussions page is to sign up for the Motorola Feedback Network.

    Once you've done so, you're on the list for future updates/tests/projects at Moto's discretion. I don't know if everyone who signs up is included, or if it's cherry-picked, or randomly allocated. In being included, you agree to provide feedback, and effectively to non-disclose.

    It's certainly worth signing up if you haven't...

    Note, I'm not saying anything about the truth of the rumor - this is just the publicly available information about getting into the update test process

    I signed up today. I doubt I'll get this though since I'm sure they've already picked who's getting it. BUT maybe future ones.

    I'd sign up but I'm rooted and running 5.7.593.

    Not sure if MFN is a good idea for me; since technically, I'm breaking or bending Big Red's rules?
