According to Verizon, the Droid Bionic users will be able to receive the OTA Jelly Bean 4.1.2 flavor starting from next week. Actually the firmware will be rolled out starting from Monday, but don’t get too enthusiastic as being an official release of the Android OS, the Jelly Bean update will be launched in phases. Anyway, the best is that finally Motorola had decided to bring the latest features and apps to its Droid Bionic, which was a highly appreciated smartphone back in 2011 when it was released for the first time.
So if you still own the Droid Bionic, then you will finally be able to test and run the Jelly Bean OS on your own device. Also, your phone will be optimized so that you can receive more power and improved performances, as we all know that Android 4.1.2 is coming with many features and apps that can only spice things up. Unfortunately, if you have a rooted handset, or if you have updated it with a custom ROM firmware, then you will not be able to get and apply the OTA release of Jelly Bean. Don’t worry though, as a suitable manual flashing procedure will soon be made available for you.
Now, as mentioned during the introduction, the Jelly Bean software will be rolled out starting from Monday. Unfortunately, the ROM will be made available gradually, meaning that some Droid bionic users will receive the OTA sooner than others. Therefore, have patience or why not manually apply the Android 4.1.2 OS on your phone. Do remember that Jelly Bean is coming with Google Now, a new and improved keyboard, expandable notifications along with several Motorola dedicated apps and features.
