    What is the latest on ics and Verizon on the Razr? Used to be loads of threads on this but haven't seen any updates lately.

    The latest "official" OS for ICS on Verizon for the Razr/Razr Maxx is 6.16.211, however there are to un-official leaks that are .214 and .215. Un-official just means they have not been released by the carrier but they are still valid OS versions.

    You should be able to pull the official update by going into phone settings, about phone, system updates, check and then accept and download...

    Good luck!

    Thanks Smalltowngirl. But is this safe to do? Or is this a risky move? I don't want to risk screwing up my phone.

    The .215 leak does much better than the official .211 but myself, I hope moto gives it a little bit of time before they make the official release... only because I believe there still could be some beneficial tweaks to the .215. And maybe that is what moto is doing... making sure they have caught all the tweaks before they (and Verizon) make an official OTA. There is speculation/rumor that moto has been working on this update to release it before the Bionic upgrade to ICS. Of course this is based on some article somewhere and those articles are always based on "official" sources that are unknown-unnamed and these "official" stories almost always turn out to be false/rumors.

    But yes, at some time there will be an official OTA update!

    RAZRmax, are you still on Gingerbread or are you on ICS. Go into settings ---> About phone---> what is the System version or Android version?

    Yeah if you are on stock GB and have not froze or deleted any APPS then just do the update through the Settings>About Phone>System Updates like they recommended.

    If you are not rooted and have not delete or removed apps that came with your phone then it is absolutely safe to take the OTA update from Verizon as others have recommended.

    If you are still on GB and like how your phone is now it would be worth your time to read some of the threads about the changes in ICS before installing it. For my personal uses I think GB worked better for me.

    I know,.I'm happy with GB the only thing I'd really like is screen capture ability (I'm a developer and that would be useful). Also want the face unlock

    Screen capture is handy, face unlock not so much. I found it pretty unreliable when lighting is not optimal.

    Just out of curiosity, how do you know? The websites you use might already be using html5?

    Well knowing that g chrome does not support flash, and visiting sites with chrome browser, that are not supported in it, then returning to the same sites in the stock browser( w/flash and air installed) they work fine. Perhaps this is not the best way to check, but sites like south park ect.. that I'm pretty sure run on flash work as well. I have heard that flash on ics works for some razr users and not for others so maybe a crap shoot although I have no insite into why this would be the case. If anyone knows I would love to be filled in and if I am completely wrong please let me know that as well since i am here to provide and receive info equally.... hope others have insite and can tell me if I am wrong. If I am I apologize in advance. Thanks for any further info....

    Most definitely.. if i knew ics would have this bug.. i wouldn't update yet either until or if the problem gets fixed..ics is pretty quick,especially after doin the 215 leak n my battery life is better....but with ur last sentence there.. iam with u on this one.i meen,we didnt buy the phone jst because it was nice(well..sort of,lol) but half of us got it to watch stream videos..glad it works for some ppl but 80% of us,where completely *rolleyes* till who knows when...html5 needs to hurry up n roll out

    Yeah it is horrible for flash nit to work for everyone! I remember impatiently waiting for flash on my D1! On another note... thought this was hilarious(juvenile sense of humor i know) but someone put this pic on twitter with the tag "who wants a free iphone?"
