The original Droid Razr and Droid
Razr Maxx have begun receiving their over-the-air update to
Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, according to a report at Android Central.

The update is clocking in at more than 300 MB, so it’s recommended that you upgrade over Wi-Fi only, unless you’ve got a high or non-existent mobile data cap. Many people are reporting in the Android Central forums that their updates are failing to complete install on first try, too.

To check if you’ve got the update, go to Settings, About Phone, and then System Update.

The update comes follows on the heels of the Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD getting their update to Jelly Bean at the beginning of December, and keeps Motorola’s promise to update their phones more frequently.

There’s no word yet on whether the original Razr or Razr Maxx will see Android 4.2.

16 Jun 12 Verizon confirms Android 4.0 for Droid Razr on the way

Razr owners who have been waiting a long time for another helping of an Android dessert will soon be served.


Motorola has promised Razr and Razr Maxx owners that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades will start sometime in the second quarter, and now it looks like Verizon and Moto are scrambling to make that self-imposed deadline.

For the past few months I’ve been reporting internal leaks from sources inside Verizon on the scheduled roll-out date that were repeatedly pushed back. Most recently, the word was updates would begin June 12. When that date came and passed, I checked back with my sources who told me the date on the internal calendar remained June 12 — the hold-up was apparently in another department.

Then today the picture got a little clearer with a text message sent to some Razr users from Verizon:

Free Verizon Message: Your phone will soon be upgraded to
Android 4.0. At that time we will remove your Verizon Wireless Mobile IM app because it is not supported in Android 4.0. Please download a new instant messaging app to use IM on your phone. Thank you for using Mobile IM!

So, so long Verizon Mobile IM — we never got to know each other very well and I’m sure you’re a very nice app, but I’m quite happy to trade you for Ice Cream Sandwich.

Thanks for the tip, Shafer!
