    The odd thing was the day I got it I tried it on the another droid 4 we use for our after hr support and it didn't pull it and hasn't yet. I was sent a new phone. Did the factory reset and still haven't received it yet either.

    you do know that all tech support is trained to be empathetic to your issues and do their best to keep you calm and relaxed? im not saying its not happening but as its been seen before on other devices that if the OTA was causing mass amounts of bricks the internet wouldve done its normal explosion of people saying its happening to them. i am not here to defend the update as ive been on 217 since it was leaked and did not take it over the air.

    All those who've been running the 217 leak have had no problems, so I'm wondering if the problem is with updating the phone itself and it's not 217 that's the problem.

    Or maybe the problem was a "software issue" with who got the update, i.e. non-testers getting it.

    That could be the case, as far as phones being bricked the only thing that the tech support person I spoke with mentioned was to make sure I had at least 50% battery remaining. He did tell me that people are getting excited when they see the update and kicking it off with 10% battery remining, only to have the phone die in the middle of the update and become bricked. Maybe they are implementing a battery level check so this does not happen. I am surprised that the Droid 4 does not have this since when I try for updates on my wife's HTC Rhyme it checks how much charge is remaining before it can proceed.

    I did the fastboot method yesterday, rooted, installed safestrap, backedup, added eclipse rom, removed rom and haven't had a problem at all, maybe its just certain phones having issues. Ill keep anything odd or out of the ordinary posted. Also a side note, my battery life is amazing with ics, Ihavent had to charge once today and I started at 0530 with about 70% battery and moderate to constant use. :) soooo happy.

    The information the techs give out can't be relied upon.

    It may be the case or it may not be the case. But so far, on this website alone you're the only one mentioned how the update bricked your phone. I am not saying you did anything wrong or that the tech was right. But by now you would see other complaints about the update bricking phones or at least the update was delayed or stopped.

    If it bricks your phone and doesn't have insurance... would they still replace your phone after year 1? If so, refurb or brand new? I would hate mine to bricked and they replace it with refurb. I don't want the Maxx either, we already have 3 at my house. Although I do envy them when they're still on their first full charge when i'm already on my second one.

    Assuming the tech is right and there are some bugs with the OTA they released and have to make a new version (let's say 218 for example), they will have to find a way to push that to those who received the OTA. Maybe they'll add a line to the system check allowing it to apply from ICS 217?

    In the XDA thread someone mentioned that the update was suppose to go out just the soak testers and they instead started the normal phased deployment. May or may not be true. I think the community can agree that .217 is pretty stable and is a marked improvement over the last GB update. I'm personally enjoying the fastest GPS lock ever on any device I've owned. On the D3, I'd have to turn off the GPS then back on for the darn thing to work. GB on the D4 I was lucky if it got a lock in five minutes on the top of a mountain with clear skies.

    This thread got me a bit concerned since I forced the update last night and it would be just my luck that it'd have a problem. Thankfully we have such an awesome community that if there was a problem, there'd be a way to get out of it.ilovedf

    For whatever reason, the standard Moto soak test procedure sends the update to two groups: 1) the official soak testers, who provide feedback in the private Motorola forums set up for the test 2) a somewhat larger set of "others" who just get the update, without necessarily knowing anything about it.
    I guess this group calls Verizon if there are issues (soak testers are told not to, as VZ and Moto call centers haven't been trained on the update). Not quite sure why this is considered a good idea, but that is what happens!

    So given the number of people here who didn't get the update, I don't think there is any evidence that a full phased rollout was accidentally begun, just that some here were in the planned "others" group.

    Is there any way to know when the official roll out will begin.

    There is not alot of info out there on this update. Only that it started a few days Ago. I have only seen on here and on xda that the OTA Push was cancelled and also that the OTA hasnt really begun yet.... Because there is not much chatter about it I feel like I'm alone in not having recieved the update yet. I keep checking the settings -> About Phone-> System Updates and getting no update needed at this time.... :crying: I'd prefer to wait for the OTA but im getting antsy.... Sigh...
