Motorola Droid Bionic users receive word of incoming soak test, Ice Cream Sandwich likely


Members of the Motorola Feedback Network have started receiving an invitation to take part in an upcoming soak test for the Motorola Droid Bionic. The email is the standard one issued before any incoming software test, and therefor doesn’t provide any details in the slightest as to what the update will contain, but it’s safe to say Ice Cream Sandwich is likely.

OK, it’s never safe to say that until the matter is confirmed, but unless we’re talking about a minor maintenance update, the soak test fits neatly into Motorola’s timeline for providing Android 4.0 to their devices. We’ll know soon enough, as those registering for the test should start seeing the new software any day now.

  1. They release this test as soon as I’m ready to kick Verizon to the curb. Getting tired of being raped by their high prices. I have the leak installed on my phone, but, flash dosen’t work very well with it. Hard to stream my shows over the HDMI out to the spare TV while the wife is watching “Mcleod’s Daughters”, a show about an all girls Australian Ranch.

  2. I just checked the Motorola Android Software Upgrade board and the Bionic is on the list to receive ICS 4.0.4 in Q4.

    1. Guess you didn’t read the fine print at the bottom of the page where it says “…is not a commitment or an obligation to deliver any product, product feature, software upgrade or functionality…”

      1. Guess you didn’t notice that I didn’t say it was. Love it when people assume things!

        1. guess both of you didnt read the ultra fine print that said keep calm and chive on

  3. Does it matter if Flash works? The Bionic is going to get JB next and Flash isn’t supported at all on that. So no matter if it works now or not you’re going to lose it all together in another couple of months. Just get used to it not being there. FLASH IS DEAD

    1. “The Bionic is going to get JB next…”
      I don’t think I could type that line without laughing hysterically.

  4. Cool. A year old phone is getting an update to Android that is 1 version behind and 1 year old!

    1. That’s one moronic statement.

      1. Sadly, he’s right. =[ There’s no denying that Bionic owners have been shafted when RAZR owners have had their ICS for months now. Sure it is largely Verizon’s fault, but it’s still pathetic. I have a Thunderbolt, and my brother the Bionic, so yeah, definitely two of the almost completely abandoned phones to come out of Verizon in 2011. The ICS leak I am running on my Thunderbolt is nice, but performance is atrocious. Where I used to get 2200-2700 in Quadrant, I now get about 1200 for the time being.

  5. No OG Atrix No Care

  6. Amazing! Good find. :|

  7. Due to Motorola not supporting the Webtop function into JB I think it’s extremely unlikely that we will see an official JB update for the Bionic, but for the love of Ghod bring the ICS love.
    THIS phone doesn’t need more than that.
    ICS and maybe a couple/few maintenance updates and that seems fair to me.

  8. And yet Motorola says IT’S CANCELLED just like my ATRIX Sprint Owner of the PHOTON
