Verizon in a blog post has made the announcement of availability of Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update for users of Motorola Droid Bionic. The update was set to be released by last quarter, but Motorola was seen as dumping the update. The case was later seen by Motorola’s new VP, Punit Soni who intervened in the going-around mess.
The update has been released as an OTA (over-the-air) release in phases, meaning that you will automatically get an update notification of the availability of an update when connected to a network. You can manually check by going to Settings > About Phone > Check for updates.
If you can’t wait for the update to become available or using a third-party ROM, you can install this release from Google.
