Verizon Motorola Droid 4 ICS update now approved

If you are over in the good old US of A and own a Motorola Droid 4 on Verizon, you will no doubt have been patiently awaiting the arrival of the ICS update to be pushed out to your smartphone. Well it appears that the wait for Android 4.0 is fast coming to an end because the word is the Big Red has now finally signed off and approved the ICS update for the Motorola Droid 4.

The guys over at Rootzwifi are reporting that the Motorola Droid 4 ICS update is now in the testing stage and customers can expect the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update to begin hitting their device over the next couple of weeks, or perhaps sooner if everything pans out okay.

Apparently the file size of the update is 364.1MB so you will need to ensure you use a good WiFi connection once it is pushed out, and the build number of the update is Android 4.0.4, 6.16.217, and of course you will be able to grab the ICS update either manually or by accepting the over the air update.

Key features with Android Ice Cream Sandwich for the Motorola Droid 4 include being enabled for global roaming, the removal of Mobile IM, the colour for Facebook app is preloaded, integration of a new version of Backup Assistant Plus, improved connectivity with Mobile Hotspot, improved camera picture quality, reduced reset and power cycling, improved MY Gallery performance, an updated Mobile Hotspot icon, home screen visual voicemail short cut is now a standard voicemail shot cut, and improved email connectivity and stability along with a new customer care solution to improve the customer service experience.

So there you have it, your Motorola Droid 4 could well be rocking Android Ice Cream Sandwich in the not too distant future, so make sure you keep an eye open for that update notification to hit.

    This took away features like searching and sorting in email. How do I get that back? And I hate the black background but can’t change it.
