Droid Bionic Update to Jelly Bean Live

Almost two years after the Droid Bionic was the hit device of 2011, it is being updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

The update enhances Voice Search, adds Google Now and other Jelly Bean features including more faster smoother transitions and other Jelly Bean features.

Android Jelly Bean 4.1It 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.

  1. Just updated my bionic to jelly bean, love the new look on some icons, hope it runs better on my droid. It's way past time to upgrade, but until the cells meet my qualifications, it's still a toss up! The biggest issue is the lack of ram, 1 gig of ram just does not cut it in the smart phone arena. Waiting for full quad core with at least 2 gigs ram, CPU does need to be at least a 1.5 quad core too. Those cells are in line to be developed and/ or building now for some, just not enough. That's why I have not upgraded my cell yet, but very glade about the update for sure....but the bigger and stronger smart phones are needed to run these great os's . Storage too...longer battery life, for me that's all...so sitting on the side lines until it all comes together. Everyone e joy the update its way past due for most of us...thanks guys!
