DROID Bionic Update to Build 5.9.904 is on the Way to Testers, Here is the Changelog

 

The next update for the DROID Bionic is build number 5.9.904 and is not Ice Cream Sandwich. A friend of ours sent over the changelog for it that we have pasted for you below. You can see that behind-the-scenes bug fixes are all that is in store, which makes sense going from .902 to .904. In fact, when Verizon posts this changelog after testers have it, it likely won’t have any of these details on it, so take in this rare opportunity to see what backend bugs are being taken care of.

Update:  Our buddy Sam has told us that if you update to .904, you can still use the .902 fastboot files to return to .902 or to save your phone should you do something that it doesn’t like.

Issues Corrected / Enhancements

Application Updates/Improvements

  • Updated Visual Voicemail access URL
  • Preload Google R10 GMS apps

Stability and Performance Improvements

  • Visual Voicemails are sent to a device but no notification is given to the user
  • Bluetooth call tones are too loud
  • The APN table can be overwritten by 3 rd party applications,resulting in an inability to camp on the LTE network
  • DNS cache is not refreshed when moving from EHRPD to LTE
  • IPv6 default route is left over after LTE to EHRPD handoff
  • Added support for IPv6 over eHRPD
  • Reduce blank screen lock ups with inability to power up
  • Device may show a white 4G icon but the user is unable to connect to Internet

If you can’t wait for this update to be made available (it could be a couple of weeks), know that it already found its way into a forum or two earlier this week. Again, nothing major, but expect it to arrive some time soon.

Cheers ___ and Sam!
