It seems like Motorola has been hard at work addressing the issues that owners of the Droid Bionic have experiencing. In the last few weeks the members of forums such as XDA, and have been playing around with a non-official update that has escaped Motorola/Verizon’s grasp.  The update known as 5.5.886 seems to have addressed some of the bugs, and problems that we outlined a while back. Some of the issues include loss of data connectivity, poor battery life, sluggish camera, and on and on. So far most Bionic owners have noticed such benefits from the update such as better battery life, quicker camera, and better 3g and 4g connections.

With the update originally being slated for November, and with all the positive feedback from Bionic owners, it seems that the update could be available right on time. Motorola has been on the ball recently with updates to their Android devices, especially with the last of their Droid line to receive Gingerbread. With that being said, could this be the last update the Bionic receive for Gingerbread? Hopefully the next update could possibly be Ice Cream Sandwich, we can hope right?

What do you think – when should we expect to see ICS on the Bionic?
