    Just got a notification for an update to "5.9.901.en.US". Already got my .893 update and wasn't expecting this. Also checked the forums (and google) and didn't see anything. Anyone know what this is? (my bionic has never been rooted)

    Please be the unofficial "guinea pig", install it, and let it know if it's stable.

    I also received the 5.9.901 update this afternoon.

    For comparison, here is the 5.5.893 (recent patch) information:

    System Version: 5.5.893.XT875.Verizon.en.US
    Android: 2.3.4
    Baseband: CDMA_N_03.1C.57R LTEDC_U_05.115.01
    Webtop: WT-1.3.0-108_DBN-21
    Kernel: 2.6.35.7-g68606e6

    Here is the 5.9.901 update information:

    System Version: 5.9.901.XT875.Verizon.en.US
    Android 2.3.4
    Baseband version CDMA_N_04.05.00R LTEDC_U_07.1E.00
    Webtop version: WT-1.3.0-108_DBN-24
    Kernel version: 2.6.35.7-g83f1a47
    Build Number: 5.5.1_84_DBN-70

    The only thing I can draw from this is that there appears to be a significant radio update; the system version and baseband version have changed significantly, everything else shows a minor revision.

    That, however, tells us nothing about what the update really does. It could be there is already a new soak test in the works.

    A lot of people are curious if this will install on top of 5.7.893. I guess we'll know soon if those of us that flashed leaked updates are completely screwed or not.

    I'm on 5.7.893 as well. I hope it fixes some of the remaining data connection issues...

    I just hope we can install it. If not,

    Yeah I really want to be back on the upgrade path as well. Hopefully those new radios resolve any remaining data issues.

    All I can say to anyone that's currently NOT on the upgrade path, myself ESPECIALLY, is, if we are able to flash this and get ourselves back on the path, let this be a lesson to us all that patience, at least when it comes to updates that mess with radios and kernels on a locked bootloader, is a freaking virtue.

    I know what you mean. I just hope this mistake doesn't end up costing us dearly. I've learned my lesson. Now put me back on the OTA update path!

    Wait, stop! Can you accept the download and NOT install it so you can copy it from cache first? It would be MOST appreciated!!!

    I'd say this should only apply to those of you concerned about rooting but I'm posting it here just in case..

    Any mention of whether we can update over a non-OTA version?

    I've had no problems so far. I usually turn LTE off, but I turned it on and off a few times for testing, with no issues. Wifi, 3G, and 4G browsing all worked fine, and running my apps seems okay; nothing blew up.

    I'd post on Motorola's forums to ask questions, but they're down.

    If you have the prompt to download it, just tell it to download but do not install it. Instead look in your /cache directory and save off the files in there by copying them. That would be wonderful if you could do that. Thanks!

    Twitter - Link to BKJollys twitter account that posted the above.

    He doesn't mention the Bionic anywhere so I don't know if we can say for sure he is talking about the mysterious Bionic update or the RAZR maintenance update...

    looking at his previous tweets, he was talking about the RAZR update right before his last so I doubt he is referring to the Bionic in that tweet... I suppose it's still possible though.
