As is usual for Verizon, the company has posted an impending software update for a device within their support pages. It’s the closest thing we usually get to an announcement, and the update usually starts to get pushed out pretty quickly after the changelog is posted. If you’ll recall, the Motorola DROID Bionic was part of a soak test recently, and now a software update is on its way to the device.
The update is software 5.9.902.XT875.Verizon.en.US, and it brings plenty of changes to the table. Most importantly, the update is geared to making the DROID Bionic run a bit smoother, and fix plenty of issues with the device that owners have been vocal about since the handset’s launch. You’ll see a fix for the black screen issue, which locks up your device randomly, and a fix to the resets that occur when the phone is idle. There are also fixes for the multimedia dock freezes that happen from time to time, as well as a fix to the camera issues that have plagued the device.
Additionally, it will add a couple pieces of bloatware to your phone, so try not to pay any attention to that.
The software update will be released in stages, so try to stay calm as you continue to wait. And as soon as you get it, let us know what you think of the new software.
