The labels can be bandied around and around. The bottom line is simple.

If the update is paused to your phone and it has a problem then Motorola/Verizon have to fix it.

It the update got installed by you from a third-party source and has a problem then you assume the responsibility to fix it. Worst case in the past was to flash back to the previous system and then apply the update when it was pushed to you.

So ... the decision is yours ... wait for it to be pushed to you (sometime) and have it supported or install it now from a third-party source and assume the responsibility for fixing it if needed.

(Motorola/Verizon have to know the unique MEID of your Bionic to push the software update to you. Therefore they know the MEID of every Bionic they pushed the software to.)

(The postings on the Verizon website have historically been unreliable.)
