DROID Bionic Will Soon Get a Maintenance Upgrade [5.9.902]


The Motorola DROID Bionic has had an update in the works for a bit of time now and it looks like testing is all wrapped up. The changelog states that V-Cast Apps and Amazon MP3 are both preloaded. We’ve also got improvements for data connectivity and stability, WiFi mobile hotspot fixes, improvements in overall device stability and a lot more. The full changelog found in this PDF file should give you a great idea of what to expect. As always, we could be seeing this anytime between now and 2-3 weeks from now, but recent updates have come within 2-3 days after Verizon publishes the changelog. Be on the lookout for it and let us know whenever it gets sent to your handset. [via Droid-Life]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. ICS or GTFO!

  2. Bye bye, Moto…last device I’ll let you fool me with.

  3. Yay more bloatware!

  4. seriously…this phone is shit.  because of my positive experience with the orginal droid, i thought this phone would be a no-brainer.  it’s locked up, bloated, buggy and gets no developer support.  i’m seriously considering paying full price for a galaxy nexus so i can be rid of this pos.  

    1. That’s why after 4 replacement Bionics I made Verizon send me a Nexus for free. They said it could be a refurb but it was new. They stripped it of the charger and battery though but since I was planning on getting an extended battery it worked out.

    2.  If you think the Bionic is bloated, I would hate to see your reaction to the Razr..   Sooo glad I went with the Nexus..

      1. I assume they are similar in bloat…but .902 is adding two more programs I don’t want to the pile.  There are some brand new ~$400 Galaxy Nexus phones selling on Craig’s list.  It’s probably time.  

  5. I wonder if this is upgradable from 5.9.901? It took me a lot to get to that point and rooted since I was off of the OTA path with a previous update. Hopefully I am still on the “ota path” with 5.9.901

  6. Already pushing to phones.

  7. bionic is a KILLER phone you ppl ARE ALL morons!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Will affect root?

  9. Does it affect root like the last update?
