DROID Bionic Receives CM10 Alpha Build

The first CM10 Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) ROM for the DROID Bionic has been made available by developer dhacker29. It’s definitely an “alpha” build with things like the camera not working, but if you had already grown bored with Ice Cream Sandwich, then this is your next step. These alpha ROMs are usually just for tinkerers and testers, so proceed with caution.

    where can i find .230 and jb cm10?? what exactly is rombot??

  • Olen

    It’s comical that there is a JB build started and “Early Q3” has long passed without a peep from Verizon or Motorola regarding ICS. Things happen sure, but one of them should step up and say what is going on even if it’s to say “hey, we really muffed up here and it’s going to be late Q3 before we get this cleared up”.

  • I can’t call people on mine anymore 🙁 is there a way to downgrade back to ics?

  • Sam

    Flashed through safestrap onto bionic running .232 leak… so much smoother than ICS, especially typing. Unfortunately no data or camera.

  • biggu

    running the latest build of the dhive nightlies and I flashed the cm10 zip and I got no boot DX

  • RoadsterHD1

    Who is running ICS leak and running at 1.2GHz? I think the last leak was 235

    • Camikazi

      I am running .232 ICS Leak and my phone got bumped to 1.2GHz, think I
      read it depends on the revision of your CPU whether it gets bumped up or

    whats up with this site having so many NON Droid’s? sure, the Gnex and SIII run android, but that doesnt make them true droids. The bionic, Razr, are true droids. theres a difference between a “android” phone and a “Droid” phone.

      I had the Droid Charge. It was a DROID, it was a hella lt better than people made it out to be and the Super Amoled Plus display owned. It was stolen, and I miss it, but Asurion replaced it with a brand new Bionic, so I couldn’t complain much. I tried to get a Nexus out of them, but they weren’t willing to offer it 🙁

    • jsf6262

      not really…the droid brand is completely random and arbitrary. Verizon is just trying to make them sound cool. “droid phones” made by motorola have the same UI overlays as all the other phones, same goes for droid incredible etc. by HTC and droid charge by samsung. I never understood this distinction between droid and non droid android phones. it is literally just a brand Verizon stuck onto their exclusive phones, it means nothing.

  • kicknkev

    when is the real update coming everyone else is getting it……loved this phone but not with the slow-ness with updates………fail

  • Data is working, It’s just a pain to get started. you need to toggle the wireless settings in *#*#4636#*#* and under wireless settings

  • Niroc

    The real upsetting thing to me about this story is the fact that the developers are putting out JB roms before MotoVerizon has released ICS for the Bionic.

    Great job developers! Shame and embarrassment to MotoVerizon for once again not truly giving a crap about supporting their products.

  • Had it for 2 days now on the bionic. I notice besides the camera not working. also voice to text is not working and data loss every now and again. other than that. Hella fast rom. Thanks to dhacker29 we Bionic users would be still on ICS for another year or so. Kudos dhacker29. Ty.

    • RoadsterHD1

      So you are still getting data drops?

  • cheezer88

    i loved this phone when i had it, not a single problem with it, but now i love my G-Nex more

  • long live Droid Bionic ! ! !

    • mikesevenfold

      This time last year it was the most sought after phone in my opinion. It was the mythical beast that kept getting rumored and then pushed back and I HAD to have it. Then it came out….

      • Keith Sumner

        and it’s awesome and I love it? Yes.

    • RoadsterHD1

      The most under estimated phone ever. This phone has the power and with ICS it’s going to really ROCK. I can’t wait.

      • CHRIS42060

        It would have gotten a lot more attention if it was released REMOTELY close to when it was announced. The phone is not bad at all, but the announcement, release, and support by Motorola have been a total failure.

        • michael arazan

          well the first build was lacking, when the first build came out a bunch of newer faster hardware was just released so they went back and rebuilt the whole system. If the bionic used the first build it would of been a crappier device.

      • hodgewdm

        I am running the .232 leak and ICS is awesome. Super fast!!!

        • RoadsterHD1

          NICE!!! Did it cure the data drop issues? What’s your AnTuTu score now. Is your processor running at 1.2GHz now?

      • Presb4

        Mmmm, CM10 is Jelly Bean, not ICS

      • Brian Schweitzer

        I’m running the .232 leak and it’s smooth and fast. Mine didn’t change the CPU to 1.2, but I heard some did. I am unrooted, running the leak, hid the bloatware, and couldn’t be happier. I have had a couple data drop issues, but mostly while at Cedar Point Amusement Park, which is on a peninsula and has weird reception anyways (full bars to no bars depending on where you are in the park).

    • RoadsterHD1

      Bionic is a great phone and I’ll keep it till the OMAP 5 Quad-cores come out in Motorola.

  • Guest

    I’m so glad I didn’t buy this stinker.

    • bionicuser

      LOL the Bionic with the .232 leak ICS beat up alot of new phones, better than the RZR official ICS, sorry but true. now we going to JB LOL… alot of phones there will have to wait…. and wait……for OEM OTA end of the year for ICS

    • Diablo81588

      You’re missing out on a very good phone. There is still nothing out to this day that I’d rather have. RAZR HD is a different story 😛

  • RoadsterHD1

    Anybody hear any news about the oTA ICs update. Any soakers out there get an email? Any news at all? MOTO said “Early Q3” so what the hell

    • zizzybaloobah

      Nothing. I participated in the last couple soak tests, and haven’t received (or read) of any Bionic ICS update news lately.

    • bakdroid

      Mid to late Aug are the thoughts. They want to get an update out to fix the Razr before pushing the Bionic. However, the leaked 235 seems the most stable and OTA worthy.

  • WTF>…..< Wheres official cm10 for razr

    • Guest

      Shut up, nobody with a bionic wants to hear about your razer garbage!

      we will have something you never will… REMOVABLE BATTERY COVER!

      • and what’s that gonna do..?

        • Guest

          Freeze + Removable battery cover / battery = quick fix

          Freeze + Non Removable battery cover = lengthy SOL moment

  • Adam

    I thought the Bionic wasn’t supported by CM?

    • Diablo81588

      It’s built from source by dhacker. Not an official CM release.

  • Mikesevenfold

    As a Galaxy Nexus user…..

    YAY! Jelly Bean all the phones!

    Droid sighting on droid-life…

      A rare thing indeed.
