    It rolls out sometime next year. Early next year I hope.
    I believe we'll have all the same issues.

    3rd quarter of next year according to Moto, unless the D4 reaches the end of its life-cycle (Droid5?).

    If things work out the way they did with ICS upgrade, we'll get JB before the Bionic which will put us in the 2nd quarter.

    Motorola said early 2013, so most likely in the 1st quarter of next year, not the 3rd quarter. At latest I would expect it in the 2nd quarter. The new Razr M and Razr HD are expected to be updated before then end of this year and the Razr, 4 and Bionic sometime early 2013.

    I wouldn't put much faith in that posting, it's pure speculation. Currently all 4.2.x versions are still considered Jelly Bean.

    Motorola said early 2013 for Jelly Bean on the Droid 4, Razr, Razr Maxx and Bionic. Hoping it'll be 4.2 but will most likely be 4.1.2.

    CM10 is a heavily modded version of Jellybean source. They maintain their own repo with all their changes that many devs use to build ROMs. They originally pull AOSP (the actual Google source code) but modify a lot of the code so it's not quite the same as stock Jellybean.

    Ignoring all that....Motorola modifies the AOSP code as well, adding in their moto-blur and specific hardware drivers, etc...

    The Razr M and Razr HD/Maxx are the "spotlight" phones for Motorola currently so will get JB first (rumors of SOAK emails going out to M owners already). They are also different hardware than the Razr/Maxx, Bionic and D4.......which will get JB after....that's just how businesses work. Samsung is working on JB for the Galaxy SIII first, then will look at the SII.

    I hope you're right Tom. The other benefit of getting JB officially from Moto is that we get a kernel built specifically for our phones.
