    According to recent news, an unofficial leaked ROM of Jelly Bean has been released on the Galaxy S2 as well as a few other similiar phones. Does anyone know if it would be possible to port these builds over to the Droid 4? I just purchased my Droid 4 yesterday, and while owning a Droid 3 running Steal Droid 5.6 (Ice Cream Sandwich), I've grown quiet tired of the whole ICS build itself, and I'm looking for more. I'm really excited to see how smooth Jelly Bean runs thanks to Project Butter, so seeing a ROM like this running on the beastly Droid 4 would be an Android lovers dream come true. So my question is, can it be done? Or will we have to wait until the official list/release of 4.1?

    Makes sense, only reason I asked is because I know the devs on here are known for doing some pretty crazy/interesting/cool stuff lol, so I wasn't sure if it would be done sooner or later.

    Wait until mid-July when the source for Jelly Bean drops, then it's game time.

    The official ICS update hasn't been released yet, hang tight for android 4.0.4. Or you can install a leak if waiting isn't your thing.

    It's not as outdated as it looks. The last mobile phone version of android is Gingerbread (2.3.6) and the next one is ICS. Android 3.x was Honeycomb or something like that, was only for tablets, and they never released the source. Basically, ICS is the next step from Gingerbread as far as you're concerned.

    FWIW, JB is just an incremental update. because we have official drivers, kernel, etc., for the D4, moving to Android 4.1 is just a matter of customization.

    with that said, I wouldn't hold your breath for Moto to release anything. ICS is probably the end of the road for the D4, but who knows.
