    Austin, TX here. The download took 2.5 hours because I was not on WiFI but it's official, Verizon updated my phone to ICS 6.16.217. I had to reboot before the install would start and then it took about 20-30 minutes for the install to complete.

    I'm a happy camper

    Post a screen shot of your system settings "about phone" making sure baseband and kernel versions are displayed.

    Press Volume - and Power at the same time to snap a picture.

    No, I wasn't part of any test. My phone just started getting the download at 11am today.

    Interesting that you got it without being part of the soak test. If true, this has gone a lot more smoothly then the Razr update where they had an update notification saying an update is coming soon and then it came the following week, and Razr owners went from joy to sadness to joy over those few days. For us they said nothing and are updating us.

    It's the same as the 217 leak.

    Since it is exactly the same as the .217 leak it should compare favorably :)

    .217 pulled from Motorola via cheesecake is the same as .217 being pushed OTA. For it to be a different build it would have to have a different number (6.16.218 or higher.....6.16.217 was already built).

    Does ICS allow you to just have a pattern lock without the swipe unlock?

    Of course we're mad, Moto broke ANOTHER promise to us - and our devices are STILL stuck on a crappy year-and-a-half-old OS that was never designed for dual-core phones.

    Us D4 owners are surprised ICS is being pushed with hardly any fanfare (unlike the Razr which had an update saying you will get an update soon). Maybe they (Moto & Big Red) learned their lesson and you guys may get it soon too.

    Add me to the list. I was surprised to see the notification on my D4 at work, installed it and so far, so good. I wasn't signed up for a soak test, unless I signed up for something much earlier for something else...

    Well, I got the update today at work, I downloaded and chose to install later because I wanted to unroot before the install. I didn't have any ROMs or MODs and I wasn't sure if I needed to clean out anything like apps that require root or do a factory data reset. When I got home I briefly looked around the internet for install instructions and a few had stated that as long as you had not removed any factory apps you could install the update without unrooting. That's exactly what I did too, no clean up, no unroot, just install. After the install my phone was acting crazy, apps were not responding or I would press on a app and then another app would open, but I'm sure someone said it takes a while for the phone to index and update after the install (30 - 45 minuters for me). Now it's running very smooth and I have no problems. Now my tips are make sure to update your computer's Motocast and USB drivers, grab the Razor's Edge root exploit and install FoxFi with the add-on. Here is a screen shot of my ICS Droid 4 with FoxFi, I really wanted to make sure I could get wifi tether back, so now I can take my Nexus 7 with me to work and surf, oh yeah:biggrin:.
