Droid RAZR M Receives New Software Update, Still No Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

Update Droid RAZR M

The Big Red has just announced a new firmware update will roll out for the Motorola Droid RAZR M. Even though Verizon rolled out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Droid RAZR M last November, the new software package is more about bringing bug fixes and improvements than bringing new features.

The new Droid RAZR M update that is now available for download OTA is set to bring some enhancements when it comes to WiFi connectivity, voice call volume and visual voicemail connectivity.

In Verison’s official statement is also indicated that the software upgrade for Droid RAZR M will also improve the touch-to-focus feature of the camera and the sensor mounted on the back of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered smartphone will now perform better when it comes to taking photos in low light conditions.

The new Droid RAZR M software update is set to change the build number to 98.15.66.XT907.Verizon.en.US, and, as usual will roll out in phases. While some Verizon customers already received the software update notification on their Droid RAZR M units, some of you might still have to wait a couple of weeks until the new firmware update hits your devices.

Anyway, if you haven’t received the software update notification yet, it won’t hurt if you check for it manually. In order to do so you will have to head to Settings > About Phone > Software Update and tap on the Check for Updates button.

The Motorola Droid RAZR M was officially announced in September 2012 and hit the market later the same month. The smartphone came pre-loaded with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and the most important software update so far was the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that rolled out in November.

Droid RAZR M comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels and is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset with two Krait cores clocked at 1.5 GHz. It also comes with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage while the camera mounted on the back has an 8 megapixel sensor with autofocus, LED flash and full HD video recording support.

Even though it’s not known yet when it will happen, the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update is expected to hit the Droid RAZR M, as well. The new firmware update is supposed to bring an improved notifications are and lock-screen widgets, but, my guess is that you will still have to wait a couple of months for it to be rolled out by Verizon.

    My phone keeps trying to do this update, but is stuck permanently saying “0% download suspended will resume shortly” but never downloads on Wi-Fi or 4G. It is causing lag issues and horrible battery drainage quickly. Tried everything, can anyone help a girl out?

      I canceled the download and manually went in and checked it. It downloaded just fine for me after that.
