Motorola Droid Bionic owners are counting down the days for that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade from Verizon and Moto. Scheduled to arrive in early Q3 (anytime soon now, folks!), a newer pre-release ICS firmware build, version .299, has preceded the official release and can now be downloaded and installed on your Bionic.
If you want to try the latest leaked firmware for Droid Bionic, you’ll have to FXZ back to 902 and then install the previous 905 update. Only then will you be able to flash the .299 firmware. If this sounds alien to you, it’s best to consult with the folks at Droid Hive. They’ve created a detailed tutorial on how to [...]
There’s a new update available for the Motorola Droid Bionic, but, unfortunately for Verizon customers that own the device, it’s not the Ice Cream Sandwich update they’ve been waiting for. Some Droid Bionic users can reportedly download update 5.9.905 right away, and just in case you’re not able to get it, Droid-Life has the zip file for you.
According to the same publication, this week’s 5.9.905 release is just a small soak test, with the full roll-out expected to take place next week at the latest. So why should you hurry to download it? The update is going to offer you a bunch of fixes and improvements – here’s what you’re [...]
Verizon’s first 4G LTE device to come with a dual-core processor, the Droid Bionic, hasn’t exactly been the most successful Android smartphone of the past year. Released in September 2011, Motorola’s 4.3-incher has suffered from serious software glitches and, most importantly, only came a month earlier than the Droid RAZR, which is a significantly better piece of technology than the Bionic in almost every single way.
However, Big Red and Moto know how to make an uncool device wanted again, so, in a very unsurprising move, the Bionic’s price has just been slashed.
You can now get the Droid Bionic for free from Verizon’s online store [...]
If you are fond of installing custom ROMs and you own a Motorola Droid Bionic, you might want to consider a much safer way to flash those custom ROMs.
Aptly called Safestrap Recovery, this custom recovery stays away from your phone’s primary system when flashing to the phone or altering the phone in a significant way. This way, experts claim, is much safer than the usual bootstrap recovery. Safestrap Recovery is intended for phones with locked bootloaders.
It is very frustrating at times when your excitement for your a new ROM gets spoiled because you get caught in a boot-loop after flashing it. Or, worse, you are using Bootstrap and you cannot access [...]
The AOKP project has been adding some new supported devices lately, as more and more people port new AOKP-based ROMs based on the latest Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update. One of the latest additions to the AOKP’s family of supported devices is the Motorola Droid Bionic, which has received an AOKP ROM port, thanks to the guys at XDA Developers.
For those of you who are new with AOKP, it is actually a fully open source AOSP-based ROM that features improved performance and full control of customization thanks to the built in ROM control mod that gives users the freedom to do whatever they want with their devices.
AOKP is still under heavy development [...]
