Second Motorola Droid Bionic Update This Month Raising Questions

Advertisement

About two weeks back we caught wind of a pending update for the Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon LTE. With bugfixes, stability improvements, and new features, it sounded like a fantastic release, which we were glad to see arrive. While that update is still fresh on users’ phones, there’s already a sizable new update on its way out to the Bionic, and no one yet has a good sense of just what this mystery update contains.

The previous update brought the Bionic to 5.5.893. The one going out to handsets now is build 5.9.901, suggesting that there’s something a bit more substantial that a little bugfix at play here.

Verizon, which is usually great about posting news of coming updates to its website’s phone support pages, still has the changelog for the 5.5.893 update displayed as the most recent. All we’ve got to go on so far is a report that the update includes a new Emergency Alert app, but we’d expect to find more changes than just that in a 56MB download.

Curious Bionic owners have reached out to Verizon, and hopefully the company will release a statement or post the new changelog soon.
