    I received and completed the soak test survey on Sunday. If all went well with the soak, I would think the update will be released very soon.

    No worries, suspect allot of us are still here. Think it's a function of seeing repetitive posts. Once something interesting (new) comes along think you will see more activity. I still try to respond occasionally when I feel I have something constructive (or in the spirit of humor) to say. I ALWAYS look through the threads to see what's up. I have really enjoyed the Bionic Forum, a great bunch of folks, always willing to help! Recognize many of the names from the OG forum when the Bionic first came out. While I've gotta see how ICS rolls on he Bionic, I am keeping an eye on the Samsung Galaxy S3 forum ;-) I went to buy a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tab2 last weekend and ended up buying a Canon T3i DSLR instead! Duh!

    Btw, suspect it will get more lively over the next few days ;-)

    Bionic 5.9.905

    I haven't received 5.9.905 yet in San Francisco. Does it really exist? Have they rolled it out?

    They just wrapped up soak testing... if all went well after they gather the surveys they'll release it. Would keep your eyes open over the next few days. It will eventually find its way to you, may want to check for system updates occasionally. System > About Phone > System Updates Have not figured out how Big Red rolls out updates, pretty random. Enjoy!

    It seems it has not been released for "general public consumption."
    I hear it sucks (from soak testers themselves).
    I figured that they would have released it into the wild by now.
    Hmmm.

    Edit: didn't see the post right above mine until after I posted this one. My opinion still stands. :)

    Nothing here... was wondering, can any1 tell us what the update includes/consists of? I am all for updates but if nothing really changes then I'm not gonna get 2 excited about it. Bionic is awesome though... can't wait for ICS! Just put golauncher on my old Droid X2. Thats awesome as well.

    I was on the soak test and got the 905 OTA. As far as I am concerned it is a flop keeps dropping data. Some say they are not having problems but most are reporting data drops. I hope they will do something to fix our phones or I will need to fxz back to 902.

    No you will have to fxz back to 902 the use Motfail to root. Then you can flash a nanoid of 2.2 if you have one. M y buddy did it and it worked perfect. I am stuck in a 3g only area for a couple weeks so I havent done it yet. It acctualy works better on 3g. I will fxz if things do not change when Im headed back.

    I've had a completely different experience with 905. It is just as good as 902 and maybe a bit better. I didn't have any problems with data drops. I haven't had problems with my bionic from the beginning in September. My guess is the 905 will be released very soon.
