    Oh c'mon. Seriously? I do NOT have time to hit Update a million times tonight.

    Why, yes. Yes I am impatient. :)

    To the OP..what ROM are you in when you received the update??
    or do we need to go back to stock (but w/ 7.893 kernel) to receive the update!!??

    Interesting. Radio updates look to be a significant version change, with minor changes to the kernel and webtop.

    For reference: I just got my Bionic the middle of last week. I had to port my number, so prior to this happening, I bypassed activation and updated immediately to 5.5.893 via WiFi. My number port went through two days later, and I activated my phone and added all the apps.

    I get that; I asked someone to post the .893 update information so I could compare to the 5.9.901 update, which is also on my phone. If you scroll back, you'll see I posted my information as well in an earlier post to make the comparison.

    Odd, i'm a soak tester and haven't heard anything about a new soak test. Motorola forums are down, as well, so no way to check there. My 5.5.893 is still "up to date" according to my phone.

    Not so sure I like the idea of these updates sneaking out that no one has heard of.


    EDIT: This gets odder. Normally, Verizon updates their PDF about the latest software update a few days before a new update is pushed. This time, the PDF is still referencing 5.5.893

    I wonder if somebody made a boo-boo, and this wasn't supposed to be pushed out? Would explain why no one has heard of it.

    I can guarantee you that there are FAR more people that never heard of these updates then those that have heard of them.

    You were a soak tester for the last update (as was I), but that may not mean we would be for the next test. My feeling is that you sign up for each one. I don't think 'once a soak tester always a soak tester'. But I am just guessing on that part. However, I would be shocked that they sent it out without a soak test and I would think you and I would have at least gotten an invitation to be soak testers again........this is all very odd. Also interesting how close this version number is to the store demo version which is 5.9.991. It isn't April 1st is it?
