Remember that Android 4.0.4 firmware soak test for the Droid 4 we told you Motorola was preparing for last week? Apparently Verizon has now given its blessing for the update, which means that those who have registered for the soak test should be getting the notification update today.

Upon installing version 6.16.217 of the new firmware on your Motorola Droid 4, you’ll be bringing your phone that much closer to the latest Android OS. Here’s the full change log that Verizon has posted on its website:

  • Device is enabled for global roaming
  • Integration of new version of Backup Assistant Plus
  • Mobile IM removed, color for Facebook app preloaded
  • Verizon Remote Diagnostics preloaded
  • Improved stability and connectivity with Email
  • Successfully download and save ringtones
  • Improved Mobile Hotspot connectivity
  • Reduced device resets and power cycling
  • Improved camera quality
  • Improved My Gallery performance
  • Fixed Voice Mail notification
  • Updated Mobile Hotspot icon
  • Clear Contact Pictures for phonebook contacts

With the soak test finally being rolled out, it shouldn’t take long before the ICS upgrade for Motorola Droid 4 become available for the general public. We could be seeing ICS coming to your handset as early as the end of the week if the soak test goes without a hitch.

Any soak tester for the ICS update out there to share the experience?
