    Looks like the Bionic might not be getting JB. As .247 added the ability for a future update to JB. Altho, I've read that .247 might be a patch that will be pushed after .246 get OTA'd. Guess we'll have to wait and see though.

    Not quite...the .247 version was ICS with a patch to prep for JB.
    The version .246 is ICS only and this choice appears to render JB on the Bionic (ahem) moot.
    There would have to be a new version number assigned IF there will ever be a separate patch to prep .246 for JB.

    Sigh.

    I guess this is one of those cases where Google/Motorola is being forced to bend to the will of the carriers. Considering the news RAZRs aren't even shipping with JB, I imagine Verizon wasn't willing to let a year-old phone get its hands on an OS that would either put it on par with or exceed their newest phones. After all, they need to have at least one carrot to dangle in front of us--a carrot attached to a very expensive new 2-year contract.

    I am so happy! I am doing cart wheels! Finally my phone won't be a pos! I am surprised though as everyone was sure it was gonna be 247?

    On the leaked 246 with the help of HOB!

    Whether we get JB on the Bionic or not, ICS makes the Bionic a great phone, and if you want JB now, get a custom ROM.

    If you need to be on the latest software all the time, go with a Nexus for your next phone.

    For me, I have been very happy with my Bionic on ICS for some time now, thanks to SamuriHL and the House of Bionic.

    I guess they are not ready yet as I tried but this is worse then when I was a kid waiting for Santa clause to come? Wished I was a little smarter with my computer skills so I could have done it myself a long time ago but I am learning and will be confident soon to dive in and root then remove a lot of bloat I don't want or need! I want to say thank you again to all the bionic owners who take the time to help us non computer generation...

    What advantage does 246 have over 232? I have been on 232 since it leaked and haven't had any issues.

    I just downgraded from 247, and so far I really don't notice any difference.
    I went from 232 to 247 a while ago, and the biggest improvements were with battery life and touch screen response.
    I believe the only difference between 246 and 247, is that 247 included the prep for JB.

    Just wanted to add my 2 cents, I just downshifted to .246 with HOB keeping data intact. As Martha used to say, it's a beautiful thing. Thanks again Samuri!

    It is for me.. But I've also noticed that the issue is more common when charging the phone on my PS3.

    I've seen that on the Bionic once or twice, but the phone that really did it on a fairly reliable basis was the Palm Pixi that one of the family members used to have. You had to charge it, unplug it, then touch the screen.

    I'm kind of a noob, so I apologize if this is a dumb question, but I had previously rooted my bionic and installed a custom rom, but being as I want to get the OTA update, I followed up to step 10. Everything seems to have gone as planned, and It looks like it's back at the factory state. When I try to do a system update, it tells me my phone is up to date. Do you guys think this is because I'm just not patient, or because of the way I restored it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay. Thanks! I was thinking that the OTA update was available and that somehow I'd messed up my phone's upgrade path...
