Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx Received Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Motorola Droid RAZR

I don’t know whether it’s relevant or not that Motorola is now under Google’s protective wing, but the Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx smartphones have received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update.

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx started to roll out a couple of days ago. Like usual, the software update is available OTA, but also via the PC suite for the Motorola smartphones.

In case you were wondering there are about two months since Motorola has promised the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for some of its most powerful smartphones in the line-up.

Motorola Droid RAZR was announced in October 2011 and made available for purchase one moth later packing a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.2 GHz TI OMAP CPU, 1 GB of RAM 16 GB of storage and an 8 megapixel camera with full HD video recording support. Droid RAZR has a kevlar body, being 7.1 mm thin and featuring a 1,780 mAh battery.

The main difference between Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx is the battery keeping the later one alive. RAZR Maxx sports a 3,000 mAh battery that pushes its body profile to 9 mm.

The two smartphones were launched with Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread on board, but now, both Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx have received the highly-anticipated Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update.

Have you received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update on your Motorola Droid RAZR or Droid RAZR Maxx yet?

Some of the users reported that the download of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update package for Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx has stopped midway. If you are one of them, we recommend you to wait until tomorrow, then try again. It’s definitely a problem with Motorola’s server and not with the terminals.

    This is the dumbest sh*t I’ve read so far. It’s the server huh? How about all the bugs people that actually got the update have been reporting? Do some research before you write an article…

    Only a select number of people were actually able to complete the update OTA. Everyone elses got pulled halfway through. Anyone looking for more info can go to a more reputable source. Some people have been installing the update manually; however, some of those people have been reporting issues as well. VZW and Motorola have yet to comment.

      Thanks for the info on VZW and Motorola – I received the Upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.1.2 over Christmas holidays via my home WiFi. Install was complete, however, now receiving a message at each startup that: Process Com.Motorola.VZW,VMM – “program has stopped working”. Your phone freezes up until you press O.K.
      Verizon has not been able to help, Motorola has not helped – both say “It’s a Google Problem”… try having a problem corrected by Google. You can not truly contact or obtain any support from Google. Very frustrating, especially when its not your fault. Can not find an answer yet!

    Whoever wrote this article did no research…

    I don’t know what Motorla PC Suite you refer to, but neither the Motorola site nor Verizon Wireless have any information about Jelly Bean for the Droid RAZR. My RAZR continues to tell me it’s up to date (with ICS). There doesn’t seem to be any consistent evidence that the update which began Christmas eve and was then pulled, has begun rolling out again.

    I spoke to motora. They say It Was A Mistake. Still No Date Set For JB.

    • Tony

      Gets your facts straight. I straight up downloaded 4.1.2 on Christmas Eve. Running like a charm. No issues. Downloaded the Razr M/ Maxx HD launcher with the circles widget. So nice

  • tony

    I did the manual down lost on my RAZR and it works great no issues

  • john

    I got pushed the update Xmas eve. Just woke up and it was downloading. The update was successfully installed also.

  • Noam

    This is one of dozens of articles I’ve found with incorrect (or outdated) information regarding this update. People really need to get their facts straight before publishing this stuff, especially if they are publishing it DAYS after it actually happened.

  • Mike

    Mine started the update then recieved an error message that the download failed. Now when I go to check for updates it never does anything other than keeps saying checking for update. Doesnt say it is up to date. Could that be motorola causing that when they pulled the update?

  • jmllr112

    My moms raze got the ota update working fine. So I pulled the update from xda developers and did the install from SD card everything working fine

  • Chris
