Yesterday, we learned that the Motorola Droid Bionic bug fix update, the one that fixes a massive amount of issues, is ready to go. And today, it has become apparent that the update is now rolling to members of Motorola’s Feedback Network who will now be testing the update to ensure that it’s ready to roll out to the masses. And if everything goes smoothly, we should see the update roll out soon.
There is no question that this is an update that Droid Bionic owners desperately need. The device has been plagued with a multitude of issues since it was launched back in September.
It’s now December.
However, it appears that they will be taken care of soon. Says Motorola:
Starting tomorrow (today) at around noon ET, you will get the update pushed to your phone. You will likely see comments on the public forums from owners who receive the update but are not providing feedback here, where we want your input. We will block your ability to post in the public community, but you will get it back in a day or so. And please remember that this project is confidential.
I want to make a few things clear so we don’t have misunderstandings later:
We’re testing final software. A group of some thousands of Droid Bionic owners will receive the software upgrade. Then, we wait for a short period — generally two days but since we’re going into the weekend we’ll get extra time — to see what happens. But only a portion of that group is made up of owners like you, from the Motorola Feedback Network. It’s your feedback that we rely on in evaluting if our software is ready.
Unless there is some extremely serious issue, we will very likely release this software. We have several goals in this effort. First, to make sure something big doesn’t show up with thousands of testers that didn’t show up with dozens and scores. Second, we get a sense of what you like, don’t like, need help with, etc., so we’re prepared for when all the owners are upgraded. And we also capture issues that we may need to address in the future. Certainly if there is anything big, we go back and fix it before we launch. It’s rare, but it’s happened before.
So, it’s looking like this is a go folks.
Keep an eye out.
