    My Bionic is on the official 905 version but I am rooted. Will the OTA update work and if yes will I still be rooted?

    I don't think so. I was on .902 rooted when .905 was released and it got pushed to me no problem, but I had to re-root.

    Why would they release it 1st in Wichita, Kansas? I didn't even know that cellphone towers existed there.

    Anyone in LA or SoCal get the OTA?

    When someone creates a downloadable zip, then of course, you can flash it.

    But is this truly the OTA or just some people getting the soak test?

    Did you join Moto's Feedback Network? If no, that's why you're still waiting.

    Good question!

    Kansas, makes sense, take a look at a map, it is smack dab in the middle of the country! Home of Dwight Eisenhower.

    Since the West is 2 hours away we will like get our update very soon, last time the update came out it showed up on the second morning.

    I've heard that the distribution is random.

    Cell coverage is quite good where I live in central Kansas. We have electricity and indoor plumbing, too!

    Mine came through yesterday about this time. Sure is different! LOL I wasn't sure how to answer a call at first.
    A little dissapointed the Dialer and Contacts are now totally separate. I liked having just one icon for them.

    I dont blame you. That sucks. the only device I have with jellybean is a tablet so I didn't know that ice cream Sandwich was going to split up the dialer contacts .

    Have you tried headphones with ICS on your bionic yet? someone else said that the headphone whine is back since they updated ICS
