Motorola DROID BIONIC getting new "soak test"
Motorola DROID BIONIC owners have been receiving email from the Motorola Feedback Network, asking them to take place in another one of the manufacturer's "soak tests". According to Android Authority, this will be for the 5.9.902 update that was leaked in the middle of last month. Droid-Life has the changelog from the update, and it is expected to bring a few new wrinkles to the DROID BIONIC.

The update will remove the VCAST Music pre-load from the phone, while pre-loading the Amazon MP3 app. The Motorola Terms and Conditions screen will automatically enable data collection/location details, and a Google security patch is added to block access to change Home panel icon. After a factory reset, a location consent screen will show on the activation screen, and the "Terms and Condition" screen will have the new title of "Motorola Terms of Service".

Motorola DROID BIONIC owners are hopeful that the update will fix the data drops that have plagued the handset along with the "Black Screen of Death". And just perhaps the next "soak test" for the Motorola DROID BIONIC will be for Android 4.0.

I wish that HTC would do "soak testing" with their devices.

.902 doesn't exist. Moto has already stated that .901 will be the official update. .901 is the leak you are refering too.

Um...don't you know what a "soak test" is? That is where they release unannounced versions (versions that don't exist) for people to try and test. .901 might be to current/official update, but .902 might be something more advanced/more up-to-date than what .901 is.

.902 never even went to soak testers. Which has been verified on Droid-life, XDA, and Rootzwiki... Oh and 5 or so motorola reps in the dev department.
