Motorola Getting Users to Help Test Bionic Bugfix Update
Motorola revealed earlier this month that work was in progress on a new update to the Droid Bionic, and we could hope to see it released in 30-60 days from then. Bionic users registered with Motorola may have a shot at getting their hands on the update way before then, as the company has been soliciting users to help it with a Droid Bionic “project” one very likely to be the update’s soak test.
Just what will this bugfix update cover? We already mentioned the issues we noticed with audio interference as one we expect to see addressed. There’s a problem with the phone losing the ability to connect to a wireless data network that can pop up when transitioning from 4G to 3G that Motorola is reportedly planning on fixing, as well. You can also look forward to fixes for MMS-related crashes, improvements in 3-way calling behavior, and finally correcting how recent applications are displayed. Then there’s stuff that probably won’t get fixed this time around, like low memory errors when using the lapdock, but that and other bugs should be tackled in a future update.
If this soak goes well, we might see Motorola hit its target for the update’s release at closer to 30 days than 60.
