Another official build from Motorola and Verizon for the popular DROID Bionic has been leaked recently. Sadly we are still waiting for the official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Bionic, and now that seems to be pretty far off. When we are still seeing Gingerbread builds leak, that can’t be a good thing for the Android 4.0 ICS progress.
According to the details from the folks at Droidfurms this Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread build doesn’t appear to do much, and didn’t even bump the Bionic to 2.3.6 or 2.3.7 Gingerbread. With the DROID 4 seeing an ICS leak recently many were hoping the Bionic was next but that still isn’t the case. Almost every other new Motorola DROID phone has seen an ICS leak, but none have been officially updated yet.
Verizon and Motorola list the update as build 5.9.905 for the Bionic, and with soak test invites for an update going out a few weeks ago it looks like this might be the final version ready for users. From the comments it appears to be quite minor, possibly preparing the Bionic for Android 4.0 ICS to arrive later. Other than that there’s a few battery saving updates as well as better 3G/4G hand-offs and general performance. You can give it a try, or wait for the official update which should arrive shortly.
