Motorola Droid Bionic update

We love updates. That is, we love updates when we know what they are and what they do. Such is not the case with the Motorola Droid Bionic, which is in the midst of getting an update to system version 5.9.901. Verizon's yet to post a changelog, and the OS version is still Android 2.3.4. Though AC reader Jim does note that there appears to be a new "Emergency Alerts" app, which might or might not be a part of that emergency alert system Verizon accidentally cookied off early a few weeks ago.

We've hit up Big Red in hopes of unraveling this one, and we've got more pics after the break. In the meantime, hit the forum link below to see what everyone else is seeing.

If I had to guess (I don't, but I will anyway), I'd say it is to fix the 3G/4G tower authentication issue.

From the screen shots--It looks like VZW is pushing out Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS). You can't opt out of presidential alerts (darn it!), but can block alerts for imminent threats to safety of life and/or AMBER Alerts.
