ICS 4.0.4 Leaks For DROID Bionic, Can Be Flashed Through Stock Recovery

Bionic owners, let me be the first to tell you that your morning just got a whole lot better. Late last night, Android guru P3Droid said on twitter that he came across a leaked build of Ice Cream Sandwich for the DROID Bionic. First impressions are that the build is “buttery smooth” and many people are reporting that it runs pretty well on the phone.

The best part about this file is that it can be, actually must be, flashed from stock recovery. You must be on stock .905 for this to work but if you drop the file on your SDcard you can flash away. And if the story could get any sweeter, the root method that worked on the RAZR 4.0.4 build seems to work fine here, but there is a special root method being made for this anyway. If you want to get your Bionic up-to-date hit the source link below and happy flashing!

Update:  The previous root method apparently works, but djrbliss is recommending that you do not use it. Wait for the special root method if you can.

Cheers Mike, Sam, and Josh!

    Safestrap 2.0 for ICS is also out, works perfectly.

  • Eiron Moore

    I decided to do it even though there isnt much info about it right now and wow!! Works great flashing from stock .905. No problems at all just used astro to back up all my apps and took a couple screen shots so I could set it back up how I had it and all is good!

  • http://profiles.google.com/thelolotov Jacob Davis

    Great, now the Bionic fanboys can stop littering the Droid RAZR and Droid 4 ICS leak threads with their complaints about how Motorola doesn’t love them.

  • someguy767

    so far,
    -there is a ICS lock screen (you can’t change the software you want to have on there, recommend apex launcher for that) and the face unlock seems to work on mine
    -the notification bar seems to be the same
    -there is a ton of bloatware ( i haven’t tried to remove them yet)
    -for some reason though my apps aren’t installing by themselves, i have to manually select and install them for now.
    -the overall look of the icons and UI seems to be better.,. when i open the native gallery app it looks a LOT smoother instead of the pixely thumbnails
    -there is a native music app with a similar interface to the gallery app
    -native camera app seems to be working, though not as great as the gnex but better than the one from gb
    -OH one thing that threw me off was that you can’t press and hold on the homescreen for widgets and app shortcuts?.. weird..
    -keyboard SUCKS, swiftkey for the save.

    i’ll come back to give updates on the data connections and the battery life. i have an extended battery so might take a while. who knows? i average 30hrs on it. hopefully this will help me get to 35? *fingers crossed*

    • hkklife

      Awesome, thanks for the feedback. As far as the stock camera app, by “better” do you mean it’s faster to focus & snap pictures? Any noticable improvements in image quality? Camera is my biggest complaint with the Bionic.

      So the keyboard quality has gone downhill from the GB Blur keyboard? Ever since the Droid X I have thought Moto has the best damn stock keyboard around!

      When you get a chance, can you check to see if you are you able to disable any of the bloatware or uninstall some of it (like Let’s Golf)?

      Also, are there any changes to the storage partitions (phone storage/internal storage)?
      Do you have a way to test Webtop yet or HDMI output? Thanks!

      • someguy767

        yeah, that’s exactly what i mean, the camera snaps a little faster than the original GB camera app. which took days on my phone!
        and the image quality is okay, i mean i haven’t sat down and scrutinized any of the pictures yet but judging from the pictures i’ve taken on the whim, seems pretty good

        and for the keyboard, yea the keys are crammed together worse than they were before, so IMO its just unappealing and doesnt work well with my fat fingers.

        OH i forgot to mention, the homescreen dock is quite THICK, I liked the CM9 or AOKP drawers so I’m using apex launcher for all my tweaks.

        I got a chance to go through the apps, yes i got rid of lets golf and zumocast, otherwise i had to keep all the vzn apps and slacker.. better than nothing i guess. i haven’t rooted it yet so i’ll see what more i can do with that later
        and one last thing. they added an app called MOTOACTV

        the storage partitions have no big changes, they did add in a “manage internal features” button that lets you transfer your pictures, movies and songs by checking a box in the pop up.
        one other thing they added was that now when you see the break down of the different types of files in the internal storage you can press the apps, pics/videos, and audio it takes you straight to it so that you can see what exactly you have on the internal storage.

        as for the webtop or hdmi, i cannot. i never bought the lapdock! =[ i chose to buy a new alienware laptop instead!

        • Lambo_21

          can you hide the apps like the 4.0 feature says

          • someguy767

            yea you can,

            update: Battery life is OKAY at most. from getting almost 30 hrs to getting only 12-15hrs i don’t really like it, thats the original reason why i got the extended battery, i hate having to worry about the battery at night again. i use 4g all day and it rarely switches to 3g. i dont know why, i’m still on this leak, haven’t had time to jump to the new one. so this will have to do for now.

  • someguy767

    Just used fxz to get back to 902 and then to 905,
    flashed and waiting for it to finish installing.
    everything going smooth so far
    i’ll report back in a few hours after testing it out

  • jayrod

    Will I lose root? I have forever root

  • baniels

    Someone please post a mirror.

  • michael curtis

    ICS works great, I was beginning to wonder about that root. Didn’t work at all thought it was just me

  • mike

    Any idea when the official ICS is coming to the bionic

  • Bionic

    I’m hoping that since we’re seeing this today the official push will be before the end of july.

    • http://twitter.com/marker1015 MrSix

      The end of July isn’t Q3….so I wouldn’t bet on it.

      • RoadsterHD1

        Moto says early Q3, that could mean July ICS push

  • kilarican

    How much longer for the official update?

  • Mike Mancini

    I get assert failed apply patch check…. E:Error in tmp/sideload/package.zip
    (status 7) Installation aborted. My phone is rooted.

    • pr35mac

      You can’t have root, you need to come from complete Stock. FXZ back to .902, take the OTA update to .905, then use the system recovery to flash ICS leak. You can flash it from there.

      • Mike Mancini

        How do I FXZ back to .902 so I can install update? Thanks

  • hkklife

    ICS on Bionic tour just posted to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaJ4BlthS44

  • Daniel Clifford

    Hellz Yes! So we are looking at what? 2-3 months before it is officially pushed out?

  • Mike Mancini

    Do I need to be rooted? How can I make sure my phone is rooted? I did it a while back but after updates not sure if it remains rooted. Thanks

    • pr35mac

      You will loose root when you flash. You need to uninstall Safestrap or Bionic Bootstrapper if you have them, and to be safe fxz to .902 so you can update to .905 with NO ROOT

  • pr35mac

    Does anybody else get sent to the wrong forum post when the click the link. I had commented on it but now my Droid Hive profile says I have not commented on anything. I think the thread was deleted.

  • eddieonofre

    Wait did you say I have to revert to stock?you meant unrooted? Or just stock rooted?

  • http://www.elliottblufer.com Elliott Blufer

    Let me guess this straight…right when I’m going to upgrade to the SIII because my upgrade is going to go away I would have gotten ICS?

    • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson

      Sell the GS3, pocket the cash. It’ll sell for 500+ on ebay easy

      • http://www.elliottblufer.com Elliott Blufer

        I’m considering doing that and waiting for the Razr HD…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=832902177 Anthony A. Alves

    Motorola bump the clock speeds from 1.0 to 1.2 ghz

  • Kinetic Walrus

    You will not be able to flash back to stock if you upgrade to this. You will be stuck with this flash until an FXZ is developed for this version. Just a warning for all.

  • WickedToby741

    Having a really hard time trying to convince myself NOT to flash this right now. I want ICS so badly, but I don’t want to get off the OTA path (especially with no current FXZ back) and I need my phone for work, so I need a reliably working phone day-to-day. But it’s really really tempting. I’m eagerly awaiting reports on how well this works. If you’re currently running it, let me know how it is!

    • michael curtis

      Do It, I did and it’s awesome!!!

      • WickedToby741

        I have no doubts of it being awesome, but I need reliable. Do all the core apps work? Any data issues? Random reboots? Has anyone actually even made a call with the ICS builds yet? These are answers I need before taking the plunge because as it stands right now, there’s no clear way to go back.

  • Mike Mancini

    I thought just save to sdcard and us stock recovery. Do we need to clear chace? change to update.zip? Thanks

    • http://www.facebook.com/jaxon.wright Jaxon Wright

      I’d clear the cache, just in case..

  • thatnigbamboo

    Ok I did all my backups charged my lapdock and got the file on my computer so all I need to do is put it on my phone maybe change the file name to update.zip then install lucky I love my g-nex on aokp at this time but I do have both phones on Unlimited data with verizon plus I have the droid X2 for a backup but my all day phone is my g-nex I hope all is good on this so lets get this done wish me luck please ask Q and Ill try to give you all A like I said wish me luck

    • normmcgarry

      When you read this back to yourself, does it make sense to you without any sort of punctuation?

      • cheezer88

        i was thinking the same thing

    • http://www.facebook.com/jaxon.wright Jaxon Wright

      can you please use some punctuation?

        sorry just excited thats all my bad

      Dafug i just read

  • NAM37

    Unfortunately.. my .905 update always fails. :(

    • RussyJo

      which probably occured because you were/are rooted at some point, yes? Thus, your “boot.ini” file is most likely altered is some fashion. This is what happened to me. Use RSDLite (i used version 5.5) and the .902 fzx file to completely wipe and restore .902… The .905 update should then work after that

  • http://www.facebook.com/jswoboda1 Joey Swoboda

    Someone post a walk through video on you-tube showing the UI and what all works :)

  • Mike Mancini

    Do you need to wipe and clear cache since I get an error when i try to install ICS.

    • Ryan Ball

      Install through STOCK recovery

  • picaso86

    That awkward moment when a device older than your is running the “official” ICS.

    regards,
    Razr Maxx owner

    • Diablo81588

      This is just a leak. Don’t worry, the official update with come for the Razr first :)

      • KleenDroid

        Leaks are just as important as official updates.

    • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson

      no worries, the Razr/Maxx has had official leaks for about 6-8 weeks now ;-)

    • AlexKCMO

      Actually, that’s exactly how it should be.

  • moelsen8

    made me nostalgic for a second there. enjoy it, bionic owners!

  • applh8tr

    I fear the upgrade path woes if all goes wrong… will keep trolling in search of positive news before throwing this on.

  • Diablo

    Diablo checking in, the Bionic is useless, shoulda gone with a Razr Maxx!

    • http://www.facebook.com/soccermadman Allen George

      ^ For the LOLZ

  • Frank Davis

    i’m taking the plunge

    • kixofmyg0t

      Be sure to report back! Also check ur CPU speed after the update to confirm 1.2Ghz is the new max.

  • Silver Veloz

    I want some Ice Cream. I will wait til the official update…..still stock here .905. Hopefully this will quiet those Bionic bashers out there. This is a great solid phone and this just enhances it even more. How exciting is this? I am curious about the reviews once this happens (or from those who are using the leak (above). Woo Hoo for Bionic owners.

    • hkklife

      Yup, sitting on stock 905 here in anticipation of the official or my S3 to arrive, whichever comes first. I am trying to decide if I want to take the plunge here. I don’t want to end up getting burned again like I did when 901 leaked a while back.

      • Luke Grissom

        I’m also waiting for my S3 but I figured it can’t hurt to try this update out. By the time the official update comes out my S3 will be here so what’s the harm. Even if I got stuck on it, who cares since I’ll have a new phone in a little over 2 weeks.

    • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson

      From the people who are brave enough to use the leak, or have a spare Bionic used for dev testing: The update is great. Radios are about the same at the moment, but the system looks pretty polished. Almost everything from the Razr has trickled down already, except its still using ZumoCast instead of the more functional MotoCast, though I’m not sure that a bad thing. Also, the processor has been kicked up to match the Razr @ 1.2 GHz, and its running butter smooth. All in all, this is what the Bionic was built for.

      • ozoscar83301

        I have bionic on ics leak 4.0.4 version 6.7.2233, and on ron tool box it only lets you tune your cpu to 1000mhz, if ICS has kicked up the cpu wouldn that then let you kick up your cpu to 1200mhz? how can i confirm my processor has been bumped up to 1.3ghz?

        • ozoscar83301

          i mean 1.2GHz not 1.3

  • XBR360

    The bionic is a perfectly fine phone. I don’t get all of the hate for it. I bought one shortly after it was released and had zero problems with it. The screen isn’t great, but it isn’t that bad, and the locked bootloader makes things that should be easy a PITA. Otherwise though, it is a solid phone that can still hang with the phones being released today. I upgraded to the GNex on launch day, and had horrible data drops in areas where the bionic got a great signal, that along with the mic cut outs caused me to return it outright and go back to the bionic. I did eventually buy a used GNex, which has worked almost perfectly, but overall it isn’t a drastically different experience that I had running a solid aosp based ICS rom on the bionic.
    I have since jumped on the S3 preorder, since it is the last upgrade I will ever use on verizon, but I’m not really convinced that it is an “upgrade,” over the GNex. I will give the S3 a shot, but I could definately see myself selling it in a few weeks and going back to the GNex.

    • WickedToby741

      It’s not that the phone itself is that bad, but it’s just the principles surrounding it. Just the fact that Verizon and Motorola had the nerve to launch the Razr little over a month later for the same $299 that early adopter Bionic owners (like me) paid. Then there’s always the locked bootloader. It’s just annoying to be treated like that. The truth is the Bionic should have been canceled. After the need for the redesign, with the Razr so close to launching the Bionic should have ceased to exist. By choosing to sell the Bionic at all, Verizon and Motorola chose to screw over their customers.

      • http://twitter.com/ra_mcewan robert mcewan

        well said. as droid 1 owner who waited for a dual core 4g phone I felt punked by moto/vzw

      • http://twitter.com/marker1015 MrSix

        They spent the money developing the phone and building the phone, if they didn’t sell it they would’ve lost money, and that’s never what a business should do.
        And you need to take some personal responsibility. Blurrycam photos of the Razr were floating around the internet way before the Bionic even went on sale. The bootloader thing is also something you should’ve known about. Every Moto on verizon since the D1 was locked and websites were even talking about it, and you had 14 days to return, not that it should even take you that long to figure it out.

        • WickedToby741

          Oh I knew about the Razr and the locked bootloader, but the screen on my OG completely died and my choices were get the Bionic or go back to a feature phone and lose unlimited data. I had reasons for making my choice and I had hopes that Motorola and Verizon wouldn’t let me down. It’s true that I was in disbelief that Motorola would launch the Razr in such short time. I saw the Razr photos and just figured it was farther off because it wouldn’t make much sense to screw over the people that bought Bionic. I was wrong.

          I am perfectly aware that a business needs to make money, but you don’t make money by ticking off your loyal customers. With the Razr in the pipeline, the Bionic should have been canceled the moment they knew the Tegra 2 wasn’t going to work and the phone required a redesign. They could have saved money by not redesigning the phone and just focusing on the Razr and their customers would have been more appreciative too.

          • http://twitter.com/marker1015 MrSix

            And why would you assume that? How long does it usually take for a fully built phone to appear in spy shots and then launch officially? It’s never been that long. And given the expected launch date of the Bionic at the time, well it just seemed to match right up to me.

            And lets be real no significant amount of people got screwed, unless they were in your situation or similar. If someone didn’t know the Razr was coming when they bought the Bionic, chances are they were just casual phone buyers who wouldn’t care. And if someone knew but rushed out to buy a Bionic anyway, well they just can’t be that bright.

            And the Bionic was never going to be a Tegra2 device, if you remember the CES coverage, Moto always said “dual core” never Tegra. And if they could’ve just not done the phone they probably would’ve, but Verizon was probably pushing for it to keep from being the only carrier with a dual core 4G device for too much longer. And the Razr just a Bionic with a slimmer body and a few upgrades, how much more could they focus on it? At the time it was basically the best device on the market anyway, and any investment to make it markedly better would’ve kept it off the shelves for way longer than Big Red was probably willing to deal with.

    • jak_341

      The phone is awful. Blur is trash, the screen is easily the worst on any smartphone, locked bootloaders stymy development, and Motorola doesn’t support their phones. So, what is good about this phone again?

      • kixofmyg0t

        Blur isnt that bad. The screen, while not being the best in the world….isnt exactly as bad as the Samsung fanboys like you make it out to be. Motorola doesnt support their phones? You actually are using that as a point in a thread about the ICS build that Moto made? Fail.

        • jak_341

          Screen isn’t that bad? Name a worse screen other than the DX2, Bionic series? I don’t think there is one. Unless you count the Xoom! Lol! And getting an operating system that has been out for 8 months and is about to be replaced by its successor is support? The GNex had ICS at launch and the developers get the most recent build in days. That is support.

          Again I say, another Moto fail phone. 8 phones in a row and counting. Lol!

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            I can attest to that. The Bubonic has THE most disgusting display I’ve seen on a phone. Reminds me of a TV from the 80s.

          • kixofmyg0t

            You wernt even alive in the 80′s! Nice try kid!

          • KleenDroid

            Sadly I was alive in the early 60′s.

          • Ryan

            Of course the Nexus had ics at launch you moron, it’s a developer phone designed by Google to showcase their latest os upgrade. Now you just sound like a dumbass.

          • ShockHouse

            Have you ever thought that pentile doesn’t bug some people? You make it so horrible but it actually isn’t. I see nothing wrong with it, but your to biased to even think of another persons views. So what phone do you like that got ICS so fast? And no crap your GNEX got it at launch it is a Nexus haha. Take off your Nexus Goggles, if your on Verizon you won’t get Jelly Bean fast either.

          • kixofmyg0t

            Good job kid. I see you just want to hate on a phone you dont even own. Btw please compare a developer phone to a non developer phone some more, that was quite entertaining.

            Droid Eris…*shudder*
            Motorola is pushing the update just as fast as any of the other OEMs, if you hate one hate them all. Remember that 4.0 basically required a ground-up rewrite of the entire system, which takes time. And to make matters worse, Verizon is always an ass when it comes to testing, extending things even further. How long was the GNex on the same OTA build because VZW was testing the hell out of it? And guess what, the Bionic, Razr, and D4 are all arriving on the SAME Android version the GNex has, not 4 weeks after it got its update. I’d say that’s not a bad record, wouldn’t you?

          • Mr Waldo

            Motorola doesn’t support their phones?!? This phone has gotten more updates than any phone in history. That’s 2 horrible comments in a row and counting Jak….you failed miserably

          • Major_Pita

            What a douche nozzle.

        • Jeremy A

          I dont mind blur, definitely dont mind the pentile or camera, but then again i have house with an hd tv, a digital camera for pictures, and a life outside of my phone. Have loved my bionic since day 1!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=184905566 Brandon Kesler

      I tried giving the bionic a chance and I even defended it, but I’m on my third one now and data drops are increasing by the day. Verizon gave me an early upgrade and I have a RAZR on the way. I almost went Rezound because of the price but phone customer service couldn’t match it. I’m very fond of Motorola phones so im willing to give them another chance. My personal opinion has changed on the bionic though and I no longer support the device after so many people have had so many problems. Good for you for having a good one though!

      • azndan4

        Yay legendary Motorola radios!

      • RoadsterHD1

        All the 4G phones on VZN are having data drop issues…. all of them

      • RoadsterHD1
        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=184905566 Brandon Kesler

          I’m aware, but there’s a point of occasional data drops, and the data dropping about every other time you use it. My Bionic is the latter. The first 2 Bionics had a separate problem where haptic feedback would start and stop randomly while using it, along with a plethora of other Bionic issues.

    • rich

      I will buy your S3 if you hate it in the end… thanks…

    • Bionicman

      I think the problem I had with the Bionic was that I really wanted to like it. I tried to ignore the bad screen, horrible camera, data drops, random shut offs, and Blur bugs. but eventually it was too much to ignore especially considering the $299 price tag. the Gnex has/had bugs but they weren’t nearly as bad as the ones the Bionic had.
      anyway i’am happy for Bionic users that you are all getting ICS soon. it really is nice!

    • http://twitter.com/ra_mcewan robert mcewan

      I have had 3 warranty replaced bionics.. the latest seemed to be okay but just started dropping calls and data again… I am calling and asking for a different brand this time

    • ChrisTraeger1

      Absolutely agreed. It just hasn’t been unleashed to it’s full potential yet. The screen imo is quite beautiful. I think everyone read “pentile” and threw bitch fits all over the place. Good for all Bionic owners. I hope this leak is well worth the wait.

  • Sobr0801

    Awesomeness

  • Firemedic

    A tutorial for this would be greatly appreciated. I havent rooted or flashed a phone since my OG.

    • Jamerson90

      As the source article says, boot into the stock recovery (not CWM), and flash the zip.

  • Anthon Gillespie

    Fail lol

    • storm35x

      Fail nothing

  • fauxshizzl

    F*** YES!

    • mustbepbs

      I thought of you when I first read the article title. “Where’s that guy who’s always asking about the Bionic ICS update in the RAZR/MAXX articles?” I said to myself. Here he is!

      • fauxshizzl

        Glad I didn’t let you down! :)

  • bakdroid

    Very tempting. But getting off the upgrade path could be bad just like when the one Razr leak came out a few weeks ago that screwed everyone. ehhhhhhhehehhhhehh…….. tough decision….

    • Daniel Dlugos

      Agreed, while it’s temping, i’m staying put

    • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson

      once the ICS fxz is “leaked” for the Razr/Maxx, something akin to the Bionic Pathsaver from p3Droid should be possible to get anyone back on the update path.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kortesoja Lance Kortesoja

    wow. this is surprising. flashing it now hopefully no major bugs but this iwll have to set me over till samsung galaxy siii.this I did not expect moto.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kortesoja Lance Kortesoja

      actually not flashing now- can’t trust moto enough need a phone for these next few weeks

  • Lambo_21

    So close I can taste the ice cream! Thank god!! :)

  • thatnigbamboo

    Ill try the webtop on my lapdock but need to charge it doing that now Ill let everyone know how it is

    • kixofmyg0t

      Know that you may need to reboot for webtop to work.

  • thatnigbamboo

    Im going to do this and try voodoo root keeper I hope it works please let me know if anyone has tried it that way and ill keep you all posted right now im going to do titanium backup then backup my rom with rom manager and after that do this I hope I can keep root well lets go thanks droidlife for this downloding in a min after all backups lol heehee

    • T Hall

      Let us know how it is. I am nervous about going away from the OTA update path, but .905 has terrible antenna issues for me (first time I have ever experienced data drops on my Bionic).

        Same here, never experienced data drops at all until i updated.

        • T Hall

          Yeah it is very weird. I am glad to know I am not the only one, as it seems a lot of people like 905. Decisions decisions…

          • Nick

            I flashed and am now running ICS. Works great, but the data drops I had with 905 are still an issue.

          • T Hall

            Did you try a reboot? If so are you still having data drops? I think I might wait this one out if so…

          • Jeremy A

            Ya i dont get it. Along with data drops my browser, facebook app, uoutube app and netflix app are so slow. Download speeds are great still so im very confused. Also did a reboot last night and it said i had no simcard.

        Same here. 905 destroyed my Bionic. I havnt had 4G at all since I updated and 3G is spotty at best. First time ever having data drops since 886.

        Agreed. .902 was great, but 905 …. Ugh. I get data drops ALL THE TIME

      • Diablo81588

        I actually had the opposite experience. I think it varies by location. Maybe some areas got updated before others to be compatible with the new radios?

      • normmcgarry

        ^^this. Constantly get data drops on 905.

      The root method for the Razr 4.0.4 has been confirmed to work on the leak.

    Might wanna add that this update overclocks it to 1.2 GHz, like the RAZR is.

    • kixofmyg0t

      For reals?

    • JoshGroff

      Before I sold mine, I had it overclocked at 1.35 for a little bit with opptimizer then proceeded to revert to stock speeds. There’s really no need for it to have more power than it does at stock, especially not at the cost of battery life.

    • Diablo81588

      Seriously? Have to try it out for sure now!

    • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson

      Confirmed, the Bionic will basically be the Razr’s removable battery brother with a different screen. It truly is a beast of a phone, time to stretch its legs a bit ;-)

    • ozoscar83301

      How did you confirm that? on mine it shows it is still running at 1GHz, I did install the ICS leak 4.0.4 version 6.7.2233, rom tool box only lets me adjust to 1000MHz max

      • http://twitter.com/whoisajimmy Jim

        I’ve heard that some are overclocked stock and some aren’t. It’s weird. Haven’t heard of any method to the madness yet, but the overclock looks to be intentional

  • Spider210

    hmm is this official leak or what

  • Jigga_Z

    Welcome to ICS, Bionic owners! :D

    I’m curious to know if the webtop on the Bionic is the same as what is going to be on the Razr. Someone check and let us know!

    • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson

      It is very very close. The system version is close to the Razr one, and Smart Actions have made it to the Bionic as well.

      • Jigga_Z

        That’s great! I’m glad that Moto is at least trying to close the software gap between their various phones.

  • Jason Sznol

    So. Tempting.

  • Black Roger

    I read this update makes the pentile screen less blurry!

  • azndan4

    Diablo will be in here bragging about how the bionic is the best phone ever in 3, 2, 1….

    • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

      I’m surprised that tool isn’t here yet.

    • Diablo81588

      ZOMG THE BIONIC IS THE BEST PHONE EVER!

      /sarcasm

  • storm35x

    finally the bionic users can stop trolling other, better phone threads

    • JoshGroff

      Now if only G-Nex users would stop saying how much better their phone is than everything else, there might actually be intelligent discussion in the comments section.

      • storm35x

        im not on a gnex. i have the rezound and razr maxx

        • JoshGroff

          I was speaking in general, they are the worst offenders.

          I’m a Rezound owner as well, why bother having a dual core processor and 1GB if you’re not putting any of it to use with such a beautiful overlay?

          • Diablo81588

            You mean slowing it down right? :P

          • JoshGroff

            Touche, but if I cared about speed and so wished to utilize the full capacity of my phone, I could always flash a senseless ROM.

            I have a Xoom tablet for gaming, the Rezound is for minor web browsing/ FB/ Twitter/ Music, and I like what Sense has done with the paginated app drawer and notification bar. I generally like the way HTC has themed Gingerbread (and IMO improved on it.) Now with ICS being as advanced and awesome as it is, I may switch to AOKP/ CM9 down the line and use HD widgets for my weather clock.

            Keep them dang skins off my tablet though.
