Almost two years after the Droid Bionic was the hit device of 2011, it is being updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
It is always a good idea to backup your data before any update and make sure your battery is at least 50% charged. It will take you approximately 10-15 minutes to download the software, depending on network conditions. You will not be able to make emergency calls during the update process.
Verizon Wireless typically starts sending up update notifications slowly during the week and then finishes in greater numbers over the weekend.
To manually check for updates, tap Apps > Settings > About phone > System updates. Your Droid Bioni downloads updates over your Wi-Fi connection (if available) or mobile network. It is recommended that you download updates when you have a Wi-Fi connection.
Other improvements include:
- Voice and data connectivity quality.
- Calendar settings.
- Mobile Hotspot data connectivity.
- Reliability and connectivity of Back Up Assistant Plus. Visual Voicemail.
The sling and MOG application preloads have been removed.
