    I haven't been checking back here lately but I see that 5.9.901 is out for the Bionic.

    How difficult would it be for someone to develop a Rom off of this one?
    And would people who have an updated kernel/radio be able to get the new update?

    Thanks

    I'm planning on doing this and installing the kint3x rom even though that rom is no longer supported by droid the3ory.

    Yes, unfortunately on twitter, DROID th3ory stated he's dropping support for the bionic.

    Dropping support for the specific ROM, or for the Bionic altogether? I doubt he'd abandon his ICS project.

    Just wondering whether those of us with the 5.7.893 leak will be stuck with that radio and kernel.

    DHacker is working on Ics4Bionic. There is a 1 Click solution to get you back to stock.

    Are you talking about option 1 of the released and forever program or is it something else?

    You've missed a lot the last couple days. A lot of excitement, drama and suspense! You are very welcome!

    Installing 5.5.893 from the script now :) Downloaded it with LTE while Comcast was at 13%!!

    Why install the 5.5.901 "immediately" after 5.5.893? I just rebooted in 5.5.893 and waiting for root. Can I not install the 5.5.901 by bootstraping into recovery?

    Not to beat a dead horse. Since the 901 update my Bionic has been flawless. Data drops are gone, camera works like it's supposed to, apps no longer disappear, the phone is more responsive, transfer between WIFI and network is instantaneous... The list keeps growing

    That kinda sucks about TH3ORY throwing in the towel but I think he did the same thing with the TB. Well it was a gfood ride while it lasted. We still have Liberty and Eclipse. Im on Eclipose now and it's not bad not alot of whistles and bells but it is faster then all of them.

    yes. I am quite disappointed by this as well. The loyalty is not present anymore: too many device releases and flavors of the month. :-(

    If you havent already try the Eclipse Rom its a fast smooth Rom. I just hope someone sticks around. I guess Dhacker will finish the alpha hope it gets out of safe strap. Its nice because you can run two Roms but if you want to change yoiur primary Rom you gotta use bootstrap anyway I dont know guess Im just old fashiond.

    I went back to the OTA update path, used 5.5.893 for a bit and it was terrible. Went to the .901 and I am loving it. Best performance yet out of my Bionic. I am still sitting stock rooted as of 2 days ago just to test it and see before I throw a new ROM on. I think I may be going the route of Eclipse to give it a try. Can't blame DT for dropping Bionic support. Without an unlocked bootloader he has hit a plateau on what he can do. His ROM's are great though where they are at now. DH and MM will still be working on the Bionic for ICS and theming so I would not give up on that team just yet.
