Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich Update Leaks, Might Be Final Version

The Motorola Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update leaked out again and it appears that the update could very well be the final version that Verizon releases to the Droid Bionic owners who are still waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich to arrive.

According to a post on Android Forums, the Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update, and specifically build .244 leaked out a short time ago, and it would appear that the software was not pulled from a Quality Assurance server (read: testing server) but rather from a staging server which means that the software could be rolling out soon.

If it is indeed the final version, we could see a soak test for the update roll out to testers in just a couple of days. And if the soak test goes well, we could very well see the update roll out soon after.

The Droid Bionic ICS update has leaked again.

As our tipster points out, the .244 leak comes about a week after the .242 leak which means that unless Motorola and Verizon are able to squeeze another version in at the end, this is probably going to be the final version that rolls out. That is, unless Motorola and Verizon completely miss the Q3 deadline for the Droid Bionic’s update.

And that unfortunately is a possibility given that HTC, a Motorola competitor, completely missed the ICS release date windows for two Verizon devices including the HTC ThunderBolt and the Droid Incredible 2.

Motorola has said that the Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update will be out in Q3 which leaves September as the only month left in the roll out window. The company originally had promised the update for ‘early Q3’ but it appears that the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX ICS updates pushed it back.

At this point, this is as good as it’s going to get for Droid Bionic owners waiting for the update as Motorola and Verizon continue to remain silent about the software.

And while the software has leaked, we highly advise Droid Bionic owners to wait for the official Ice Cream Sandwich roll out as the leaked software could cause quite a few headaches for those not well-versed in the art of unofficial software.


Thanks, Jason!
