    Official Ice Cream Sandwich For The Droid RAZR Leaked then pulled!





    The big news was that Verizon would finally be pushing the ICS updates for The Rezound, Razr, and RazrMaxx! The Rezound update was plausible seeing as the date leaked is right in line with their projections. However lots of folks were calling bull with the leak of the Motorola dates seeing as their projected ICS dates were not expected until the third quarter. Last night Motorola sent out an email asking for Razr users to take part in testing for a new update "soak tests". This could only mean one thing. The leaked dates for the ICS updates on those devices were correct. Of course shortly after the news of that email got out some users began to receive this update and a mod at DroidRzr.com leaked out an ICS build for the Droid Razr "6.14.75.XT912". Pretty quickly it was discovered that the normal flashing methods were not working, and the file was pulled. Even though the file was pulled there were a few successful installs of the leak. The leak included a new webtop, a new ICS ui, new radios, and new system version 4.0.3!

    It looks like Razr users will be receiving that ICS update soon afterall!

    Where's the Bionic build? Total BS, IMHO; if the Bionic does not see this at the same time.

    Should the thunderbolt get ICS at the same time as the Rezound? Nope. I don't expect it to. I'm sick of people complaining about the bionic.

    Thunderbolt has absolutely nothing in common with the Rezound hardware-wise. The Bionic is almost identical to the Razr internally. The issue is that if Moto/VZW do not have a Bionic build ready at the same time as the Razr, it means they are artificially holding back on the Bionic update. And to be honest, I couldn't care less what you are sick of. This is going to become a real issue in the near future when apps are written specifically to take advantage of the Android 4.0 SDK. These apps will not run at all on the Bionic until it gets ICS. It's not just a random complaint about the device.

    I have absolutely no issues with the device. It's Motorola that I have issues with, they can never stick to a timely update schedule, and their updates seem to come out at random.

    ... I highly doubt that apps will be written to exclusively run on ics anytime soon, there are many phones that still have gingerbread and will have gingerbread for a long time... I wouldn't expect most popular apps to run exclusively on ics or higher for like 2 years at least

    There's already one major app that is ICS only that I would like to try, but cannot. Google Chrome Beta uses the new hardware acceleration features built into the ICS GUI and will not render webpages at all on earlier devices. As hardware acceleration is a major player in the smoothness of non-OpenGL apps, devs are going to want to hop on board sooner rather than later. In the end, it is important that the Bionic get ICS because it is still a top-shelf device. It is also a dual-core device, and ICS is needed to take full advantage of the multiple core CPU. Until we see ICS, we don't even have an OS capable of taking full advantage of the expensive hardware that we paid for.

    Some complaints are more valid than others, though. I am an old-skool Android dev from the OG Droid days, and I think with a developer's mindset. When you see how easily the AOKP and CM9 builds were ported between devices by a guy sitting at his PC in his spare time; and with a mismatched kernel no less, and you will understand my frustration at a company as large as Motorola with a full developer team. Between p3droid and myself, it took us literally days to come up with a custom kernel for the OG Droid with overclocking, tethering, and temp monitoring back in the Android 2.0.1 days. This was 2 dudes a couple of thousand miles apart, with very limited C++ and Linux experience; teaching ourselves how to modify code and get everything working; and collaborating via PM.

    Alot of Bionic complaints are due to user error or network issues. The holding back of a software update, well, that can only be blamed on Motorola and Verizon.
