    Was on .232 and used House of Bionic to go to .246, no issues at all so far. Not seeing any differences either.

    Well this thread has been a success so far lol. Who cares if you're waiting. You're all likely to be waiting for a long time, it's going to take a while.

    What issues are you expecting OP? Moto had to refine this release to death to get it past Verizon. Why start a thread ahead of time just to ask people to point out issues. You know the Android community, the second someone notices a bug, everyone will be talking about it. No real need for a thread like this.

    Well they did get .905 release which had a very bad issue with the data, so explain to me how they got that passed?

    Also I made this thread to have one location to were people can go to see if there are issues with the new update instead of looking around a bunch of threads and forums.

    Actually 905 didn't have a bad issue with data. The data issue that had been seen previously reappeared around the same time as 905's soak test, but many of us were still on 902 when the data issue was seen. The data issues were Verizon side.

    Remember, the data drop issue was NEVER Bionic specific. All of Verizon's early 4G models saw it. The Nexus, the Razr's, etc. It is merely that Bionic is the last to get the patch to fix the data issues which seemed to be caused by authentication issues where as all the other phones have already gotten it.

    This Is Why Your Verizon Galaxy Nexus (Or Other 4G LTE VZW Phone) Is Losing Its Data Connection

    Hey, I'm sorry about the spontaneous national update check-in.
    I guess many of us are just antzy for some rich, creamy ICS.

    My gf updated her bionic this morning, and it successfully completed. But she's having a lot of problems. When she tries to open any texting app, it just comes up blank and freezes the phone, requiring a battery pull. And the phone will just randomly freeze and need a battery pull. She can make calls sometimes, and sometimes it will just not work. If she receives a text, no notifications come up, but she will hear the notification tone but she can't see the text.

    Did she get the update OTA or download from somewhere? What messaging app? Is she rooted or stock? Did she restore any data and how?

    Your going to have to do a Factory Data Reset I'm afraid.

    Back your phone up before you do the FDR

    I'm on the .232 leak now. I'm creating a thread about my experience. As of now I do not plan on doing the ota update and have the phone blocked from updating. :)

    Oh no! I wonder what happened.. I wish her phone was rooted so that I could have made a full backup before the update. What is recommended for backing up the phone?
  22. HotPepper

    Root and titanium backup

    I did a clean install and the first run was buggy, I dis a factory reset and it helped. I know you did the ota and I ran a leaked version. I think it's best to run on a clean slate anyways.

    Please let us know how it went if and when you do your reset and get your apps all loaded and set up. :)

    Am I able to root it after the OTA upgrade was already applied? How?

    Yeah I'm sure that a clean slate would be better, but you would think that their upgrade would work. For people that don't know anything about root, they'd have to lose all of their data.

    Well, anytime a major update takes place such as going from gb to ics, it's probably best to just get a fresh start regardless of rooting abilities and data back ups. People may have luck in doing so, but I'm a fanatic about running on a clean slate especially with a major update. :)
