Motorola DROID Bionic Jelly Bean update detailed by Verizon Wireless

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Friday, April 12th, 2013 With No Comments »

Earlier in the month we learned that Motorola had begun testing the Jelly Bean update for the DROID Bionic. And well, it looks like that update is just about ready to begin rolling out to Verizon Wireless users. The carrier has since detailed the update and as such we now know that it will be arriving as Android 4.1.2 and with build number 98.72.22.XT875.


The update is expected to start rolling out early next week, which means you should be on the lookout for an update notification to arrive on your handset. If you are the type of person with some patience, you can sit back and wait for the notification to arrive and then just follow the prompts. Those who feel they need it now — you can navigate to Menu -> Settings -> About phone -> System Updates to try and get the process started.

The update will measure in at 98.72MB in size and being we are talking Jelly Bean — it will bring goodies to include a smarter keyboard, Voice Search, Google Now and the smoothness that comes along with Project Butter. Of course Jelly Bean also means the enhanced notifications which will allow you to see things such as the full details from a text message or see the full image from an MMS message.

Otherwise, aside from the Jelly Bean specific items, the changelog also shows the update as improving the quality for voice and data connectivity and improving the reliability and connectivity for Back Up Assistant Plus and Visual Voicemail. In addition, the Calendar settings have been improved, the Mobile Hotspot data connectivity has been improved and the Sling and MOG preloaded apps have been removed. But in the end — you are getting Jelly Bean.
