Remember that Android 4.0.4 firmware soak test for the Droid 4 we told you Motorola was preparing for last week? Apparently Verizon has now given its blessing for the update, which means that those who have registered for the soak test should be getting the notification update today.
Upon installing version 6.16.217 of the new firmware on your Motorola Droid 4, you’ll be bringing your phone that much closer to the latest Android OS. Here’s the full change log that Verizon has posted on its website:
Device is enabled for global roaming
Integration of new version of Backup Assistant Plus
Mobile IM removed, color for Facebook app preloaded
Verizon Remote Diagnostics preloaded
Improved stability and connectivity with Email
Successfully download and save ringtones
Improved Mobile Hotspot connectivity
Reduced device resets and power cycling
Improved camera quality
Improved My Gallery performance
Fixed Voice Mail notification
Updated Mobile Hotspot icon
Clear Contact Pictures for phonebook contacts
With the soak test finally being rolled out, it shouldn’t take long before the ICS upgrade for Motorola Droid 4 become available for the general public. We could be seeing ICS coming to your handset as early as the end of the week if the soak test goes without a hitch.
Any soak tester for the ICS update out there to share the experience?
