What is the new update?
My husband has a Razr HD (I have the Razr Maxx) and he said yesterday he got a system update (which surprised me since he's already running jelly bean). Updated it to system version 9.1.41.xt926. Does anyone know what this is? He said it changed some of the icons and color schemes with that update.
It's Jelly Bean :-)
Edit: He couldn't have already been on jelly bean unless he installed the leaked version 9.1.39 but could not be updated ota to the 9.1.41 he would have to fastboot back to stock ics before taking the ota
It's possible that he received system update, which seems out-of-order considering he has JB already. But, the 9.1.41.xt926 is the current running edition of JB.

I used to get these a lot on my Droid Incredible and they seemed to generally help fix the issues I had. Software updates aren't OS updates in the sense of being a new version of Android, more just patches to make the current version run better on your hardware. That is assuming he already had JB installed via a previous update. The trick is looking at the details of the update, often the update will also have a message saying, "go to this website for more details" and list a verizon site. On that site they will tell you the update version, what it's supposed to fix, and other such things.
In this particular case it looks like it's the "system version" which is the same as the "software version" I saw on my HTC phone, and it's likely some quick fixes to make JB run better on the Razr. If you look in the settings under the Android version you'll see that it hasn't changed, and only the "system version" has. That's Motorola issuing a patch.
I got a very small update about 3/4 of a meg then I got the big monterous JB update last week a day apart
