If anyone still cannot install ICS even after factory data reset, check out the official Motorola Bionic forum for some more discussion of what to check if "Bionic upgrade to ICS fails". Here's a link to that forum:

Flashing back to stock 905 was the recommended path to get ICS OTA with fewest headaches so I did it on both my Bionics (mine and wifes). Both installed the OTA with no problems, though I did have an aggravating time trying to get the OTA to STOP trying to download via WiFi (my homes WiFi is served by a UML290 Verizon modem WITH a 20GB data limit - while my phone is grandfathered with unlimited data, so the last thing I want is an unlimited plan chewing up a limited plans bytes!)

have you tried clearing the phone cache and/or doing a factory reset?

(be sure to back everything up first before doing an FDR)

I have been having the same issue.  I did the factory reset from Privacy in the setting then I cleared the phone cache.  I continue to get the same error.  Any other suggestions?

Bummer!  Others are reporting having to do multiple resets/cache clears/re-boots.

I will try to factory reset when i get home from work. Everything is backed

up from the back up assistant through verizon. My phone screen is damaged do

to it being dropped. Has the shattered glass affect. I can see everything

and the phone works fine but the red xxxs turned completely red(little

circle in back inside the phone ) figured thats the reason why it wont do

what is suppose to. If it doesnt work. I have slowly come to terms with my

phone is a pos and i cant wait for my upgrade in june. Thank you for the

ideas its greatly appreciated Smiley Happy
