    The leak is completely safe (can revert to 5.9.902 via FXZ file) - so worthwhile trying the leak, IMHO. Compared to ICS, all past stock Bionic OSes have sucked.

    Last I heard it was Q3, meaning anywhere from July to September, but again there's absolutely no guarantee that it's still accurate.

    Early Q3 was and is still the target. Perhaps in the next few weeks...?

    Mid to late Q3 is still very likely. After Moto thinks it's good to go, VZW will still take their standard 8-10 weeks in their lab before they release it to soak testing and deployment. I really wish there was a really viable competetor to VZW. The one thing that company lacks is any sense of urgency. I have tried them all and keep coming back.

    Dave is right, I've had it for about 48 hours now myself and have not noticed a single major issue. Not being able to switch to CDMA only (3G) can be kind of a bum deal if you don't have LTE in your area, but aside from that...ICS is really easy to flash and it's very simple to flash back to stock if you need to. Just make sure you back up everything with Titanium Back first, back up contacts, and save any important text message conversations, then take all of that stuff and back it up on your computer just to be safe. Afterwards, have a field day!

    Where do you guys get these "guesses" from? The damn release chart on Motorola's OWN website says "early Q3" - which would be July.

    Again:

    early Q3 = July
    Mid Q3 = August
    late Q3 = September


    In case you haven't actually TRIED the leak, give it a try. The thing has GOT to be close to a soak test. I'm betting the soak test will begin after the RAZR OTA finishes pushing. Following that, they will move on to the D4.

    The entire testing process takes 8-10 weeks, not just Verizon testing. The official RAZR build (211) was compiled on June 14th. If your statement was true, there would be no way that 211 would be official, since it's only 9 days old. This thing is closer to release than you guys realize, I would bet.
