Soak Test is Over
I was in the 5.9.905 soak test. The process keeps getting more and more “unusual” …
June 7 – 5.9.905 was pushed OTA to 20,000 users. A small fraction of these people had signed up to participate in the soak test. Many people who had signed up for the soak test were not included.
June 10 – a questionnaire went to soak test participants to collect results. It had a due date of June 11.
June 13 – 5.9.905 started being pushed OTA to the public in stages and made available for download.
I have been running 5.9.905 since June 7 and could of course not talk about it here. I am in a 3G-only area and observed no real change.
The only issue I encountered was in the NoLock app. It insisted that I slide the slider to answer an incoming call even when it had the Bionic unlocked. I did a soft reset (Volume Up/Volume Down/Power) and the requirement to use the slider when answering incoming calls went away.
