I guess I was one of the "lucky" ones that did actually get the whole OTA JB download before it was pulled. However, I have not yet installed it. Realizing the lack of Foxfi compatibility, I think I will wait a while.
My problem is that my phone prompts me to "install now" or "install later" twice a day. First thing in the morning and again late in the evening. Is there anyway to disable the constant nagging? Or am I going to have to live with it. Also, when it was downloaded, where did it go? It was not in the download directory. I might as well back it up if I have it.
So I'm pretty new to all of this. I've got a completely stock Razr Maxx. I definitely want to install the jelly bean update that has been floating around, and I saw the instructions posted on one of the other pages in this thread explaining how to do it. My questions is if I install jelly bean this way instead of waiting for the OTA, will all my download apps, contacts, texts, etc. still be there? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You shouldn't have any issues. I installed this way, and everything was intact for me.
In any event, wiping isn't the worst thing in the world either, if that is ever needed. You're going to automatically get your contacts back because they are stored in Gmail, and apps will re-download from the store. But again, you should be able to keep everything and start enjoying JB right away.
