Last week we reported that Verizon was planning a Jelly Bean update for the Motorola Droid Bionic for release on April 15th. Right on schedule, the update has now started rolling out to Bionic owners.
It looks like the Droid Bionic is getting an update, come Monday. Verizon has now released a detailed page that lists the update as build number 98.72.22.XT875, which brings with it Android 4.1.2.
It seems that the Motorola DROID Bionic will get Jelly Bean in Q2 2013. Motorola has just updated it’s upgrade schedule page to reflect the future upgrade.

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.

With Motorola targeting the Droid Bionic to receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in early Q3 2012, it appears a functional ICS firmware for the phone has already m...
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.
