    Default Android Update wifi only?

    Hi Guys

    Greetings from Portugal!

    I am thinking in buying a Droid 4 because with ICS the GSM becomes unlocked. But what if the Droid 4 comes with Android 2.3? Is it possible to update the Android version with wifi only and not connected to any network?

    Thanks

    You should be able to update the phone via Wi-Fi. However, I think you need to be connected to Verizon's network to either have the update pushed or pulled. They are the ones who update our phones, so I don't think you can avoid connecting to their network if you want to get ICS.

    You could root the phone, and flash an ICS leak. I believe .217 is the official build. This can be done with a computer and no network. The SBF files are also available.
