    If you had it do over again, would you upgrade to JB?

    I am one of those that is not real happy about JB killing Foxfi as that was my most used app and have not loaded JB for that reason. For those that have loaded JB are you glad you did, or is it no big deal? I have read Motolola's hype page, but would rather hear it from real users. Is it worth loosing wifi hotspot with out rooting?

    I was kinda bummed when I found out Verizon took away Bluetooth tether. But a quick root and changed the permissions and I don't even need an extra app. The responsiveness of the phone is a lot better. And Google now is somewhat useful. Not something I have to have but still kinda neat.

    I like JB. Its a much better system than ICS.
    The answer to your problem is to adapt. Try different things as a work-around.
    JB ain't going away.
    FWIW: Lots of people felt the same way when they up-graded from Gingerbread to ICS.
    We just had to adapt to doing things differently. I did.

    Now days I use WIFI at home and work, and 4G at other locations. No Problem.

    My situation is: I travel in a motor home 3-4 months out of the year. My Razr is my Wi-fi when I travel connecting two laptops and a tablet. If I am to adapt for my needs, I will probably have to root and with JB probably being the last update for the Razr, it would be time. Thanks for your input.

    I do not use foxfi so much but I might in the future. I feel that for those who need this feature JB upgrade is forcing the root issue. Change can be good so root is in my future. JB so far for me is a mixed bag.

    I couldn't wait to update. I went thru a lot to get it. Losing a perfectly setup Maxx. Once I got it I was not happy. The Razr does not get everything in the JB update. I really wanted the dropdown tiles for easy access to hotspot and wi-fi. And battery life has decreased a little. Seems the OS is always second in battery usage. Usually around 20%.

    I love it . Much smoother...I hated to lose foxfi but no biggie... rooted and used sqlite method and all works like a charm.

    Remember...there was all kinds of complaining when the RAZR got ICS.

    Seems a lot of people have short memories.

    drop-down tiles? Not familiar....

    I use widgetsoid for quick-reach things like that though. It's on the notification bar pull-down so it can be accessed from any screen. Mine is set up for toggling Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS (which is basically a link to the GPS settings screen, still have to flip that switch ON/OFF), Data, and Sync. I use all 5 of those toggles constantly, it's really handy.

    Yea I use Power Toggles as the drop down to all the settings.

    I love the update and have no regrets of going with it. I've had JB on my tablet since July 2012 so I kind of knew what to expect.

    If you used a device with real JB then you know the Razr got the short end of the stick. Jb has 2 pull down menus. The only thing I notice different then ICS is Google Now and a slight decrease in battery life. Not saying it's a horrible system upgrade. I just hoped it would have improved my phone.
