Default On board with the Bionic

Just made the jump to the Bionic from the Thunderbolt. Just did a flat trade locally for it. Awesome device.

Will be rooting soon. Anything I should know on the front end?

Yeah. I'll probably do that this morning.

Thanks for the help. What ROM do you prefer? I'm leaning towards the Gummy ROM but I'm undecided. Lol

MOTOBLUR isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Lol

If you want a fully functional ROM, go with eclipse or kinetx. ALL of the ICS roms are still BETAs and updates LAG immensely. Jus so you know.

I had a lot of accessories with it. Mainly a Trident case and two extended batteries.

But I definitely think so.

Guy already had a Razr Maxx so I'm not sure what he was gonna use mine for.

Oh ok. I'll check out Eclipse. So the ICS roms here are actually ICS? They're not GB with a theme on it? Lol

I would like to get the Razr MAXX... But good trade I have the Tbolt too but use my Bionic mostly better device for the most part.

Just wish the camera was as good as the TBolts.
History: LG G2 > HTC One > RAZR MAXX HD > Samsung SIII > Samsung Nexus > RAZR MAXX > Mot Bionic > HTC TBolt > HTC DInc > BB Tour > BB Storm > BB Curve > Voyager > Env Orange > V3m > E815. All Verizon

Went with Eclipse 2.2 with Titanium theme. Solid so far.

Now, the true test: battery life!

yep the ics roms are actually ics. they have no hardware acceleration yet though so flash doesn't work. also depending on what area your in ppl have problems with data drops. when it drops you gotta reboot to get it back. we need to get an official moto update with a better kernel and ics drivers to get it really solid.
