Software Update For Motorola Droid RAZR M Released, No Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Yet

Motorola Droid RAZR M

Several days ago we heard that Verizon and Motorola were planning to roll out another software upgrade for the Droid RAZR M that i supposed to take care of some issues. The two companies managed to get the update ready and yesterday they started to push towards the device. No, we’re not talking about the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update, as the Motorola Droid RAZR M will still run Android 4.1, but this new release will be helpful because it will fix several existing bugs.

I know the users of the Motorola Droid RAZR M will not be very happy to hear that the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update is not on its way yet, but Android 4.1 is still very similar to the latest iteration of Google’s operating system, and even though this latest firmware upgrade won’t bring along any new features it doesn’t mean that it should not be downloaded and installed because bug fixes are always welcome. However, sometimes it happens that a software update meant to fix issues could create new ones. I don’t know if this is the case of the Droid RAZR M, but it does happen.

There will be no new features in this latest Droid RAZR M update, but the software comes with a few improvements from Motorola. The manufacturer has focused on improvements on the Wi-Fi connectivity, volume and voice enhancements, video streaming, as well as improvements to the handset’s integrated camera.

As I said, the software update started to roll out over the air yesterday, and the entire file is around 80 MB. As always, we recommend you to back up your data before you install the update, and it’s better if you find a good Wi-Fi connection even if the software is not that big in size.

If you are a Motorola Droid RAZR M owner you should receive the update notification at any time, but you could also manually check for it yourself by heading to Settings > About phone > Check for updates.

Let us know if you have installed the update yet in the comment section below the article.

    I just received it. So far nothing bad has happened. It downloaded fairly quick. I’ll post again if any issues come up.

    Same here. Was automatically downloaded. I was so frustrated with this phone I was happy to see the message. We’ll see how it goes. Wifi and sound definitely needed serious help. Now if they can just fix the memory issues I’ll be happy.

    I’m wondering if the android 4.2 jellybean will bring back the app colors. My sister and I used it often to keep in touch. It was fun and free!

    I downloaded it when it first came out and when I woke up the next morning my phone was bricked. I had no previous problems with the phone. I was sent a replacement and was asked again to download the update. I did and so far no problems, except the sound stops working every once in a while. But that may just be the refurbed phone.

    Just downloaded it, works great so far! Call me crazy but I’d put money on it that the switching between homepages has been changed. Just saying :)

    It downloaded automatically, failed when I tried to install it. I downloaded it manually thinking that might help, but my second and third attempts to install it also failed.

    I installed the update on my RAZR M a few days ago and have noticed my battery life is being drained BIG Time!!! Also, I’ve been trying for days to figure out how come the Emoji for English words (in the add on dictionary section) will not work on the stock keyboard or on the JellyBean 4.2 keyboard I found in the Play Store. Any help would be appreciated.
