Verizon to start rolling out ICS update for Motorola DROID BIONIC on October 19th


Verizon has announced they will start pushing out an update for Motorola DROID BIONIC devices on October 19th. The update includes Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Along with ICS and all the enhancements it will bring to users, Verizon is including some updates to apps like Amazon Kindle, GoToMeeting, Citrix Receiver, and their own My Verizon app. The update will remove the Mobile IM app and several stability and performance enhancements will be included. The update file will clock in at just over 368 MB in size. Users can try to initiate the update on their own by going to Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates -> Download or they can wait to receive notification from Verizon that the update is available.

    According to your claims I should then receive it in 2 hours and ten minutes? I followed your link posted at the bottom, and it clearly states that it will be pushed out in “phases”. Which means it could still take a week or two for every Droid Bionic to receive this update. It also means that the probability of receiving Jelly Bean is now whittled down to a mere 30%. If the .246 release does actually contain the fabled “Jelly Bean Patch”, our chances are higher. But I’m not holding my breath because I know Verizon wants to phase us all off their unlimited Data Plans by withholding future updates for this device. As soon as I get ICS on my Droid Bionic, I’m dumping Verizon on the curb and picking up a different carrier.
