The Motorola Droid Bionic, which Verizon is offering for free now, may have only had a short stint at the top of the Droid pyramid, but the phone still has some respectable specs to hold its own against other Droid offerings. 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 made its way to the web.

The leaked ICS firmware was first spotted by the folks at DroidHive, who have also confirmed that it’s a working build of ICS – hardware acceleration included. You can find download links to the file there, along with detailed instructions. But here’s the gist of it.

To install the unofficial ICS firmware on your Droid Bionic, your phone has to still be on a stock ROM. To be specific, it’ll only work with stock 905. Once you’ve downloaded the file, you can flash the .zip through stock recovery. Here’s a video that they have posted showing the Droid Bionic running Ice Cream Sandwich.

We don’t really recommend flashing your Droid Bionic if you’re not comfortable with the details. You may want to hold out a little bit longer, as the new month (start of the third quarter as well) is fast approaching. But if you like being adventurous and already know all the risks involved – hit the link above to get your ICS fix.

    Pretty cool so far. I upgraded my XOOM 10.1 4G LTD and love it so far. I will.wait.for the official release for my Bionic though. By the way. The guy in the video was showing in the display of his bionic for most of the recording. Yet at the time he turned on the forward facing camera he stated that he didn’t want to be seen in his video. I almost died laughing. He should of previewed his video before posting it. LMAO!!
