That is incredible, I am so happy for you that it is working. As for releasing the bit, don't let him jerk his head up as soon as the bridle is off his ears, this will cause the problem to get worse. If you are able, take the bridle off from over his ears and then hold it with the bit still in his mouth until he relaxes and his head drops. When he does that, he should release the bit no problem. I am sending you happy thoughts and best wishes.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
