The still extremely popular Motorola DROID Bionic is getting some slightly good news today. While we are still awaiting the official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich it looks like the folks from Motorola are getting close. Personally I think the Bionic should get updated before the RAZR, but that’s just me. Today however the near-final Android 4.0.4 build has leaked and is available to all.

Hopefully Verizon and Motorola are working hard to release this for all as soon as possible, but while we wait users can try the official leaked build if they’d like. It even works on stock recovery devices that haven’t been tweaked to CWM. We are hearing that the update makes the bionic “buttery smooth,” screen brightness seems improved, as does the camera, and it is overall quite stable.

This actually is an official build that must be flashed using the Bionic’s stock .905 recovery from their latest official OTA. So users should be able to flash it and enjoy ICS with ease. We don’t have too many other details regarding the leaked 4.0.4 for the Bionic but it appears to be a go for now. Hopefully the official update will arrive in the next 2-4 weeks from Verizon themselves, but we have no status update on that front. Hit the link below to download and install ICS yourself.

  1. HEADS UP! – No flashing back to the old system (yet). Once you flash this you have to wait for someone to find a way to get you back to the upgrade path.

    As far as brightness and clarity go – just updating the font to the new one for ICS makes a HUGE difference!

  2. Just a quick note to update the “Device Specifications and Information ” the Droid Bionic DOES have an FM RADIO

  3. I put the file on my bionic sd card but it just views it as standard files and says they are incompatable anyone else have this problem?

  4. Installed Saturday very nice, runs good . Lapdock won’t work any more crashes constantly The facial recognition caused a crash that I could not recover from had to go back to 902 get OTA update to 905 and start over. Been fine since then will run for little while longer.
