    Technically I would say yes, however there are more wise and seasoned people in this forum who may want to elaborate and/or correct me on this point.
    I say 'yes' because after many dramas with the original software I tried to upgrade it myself and ended up bricking my razr (XT910), which originally had the Asia version. It now has the EU (and Jellybean) version, and is working better than when I first got it.

    Notable improvements:
    - Tethering works! It never properly worked before. It just started when I went to Jellybean.
    - Icecream sandwich (ICS) use to randomly reboot the phone, even in the middle of a conversation. I never figured why as I didn't tamper with the phone's software at all (before bricking)
    - I still get the occassional "Package file is invalid" when trying to install or upgrade, however this use to happen every time with ICS.

    JB will work on an XT910, and will work well (from my experience).
    I'm not keen on advising you something that may brick your phone, as I am kind of new to this myself.

    I have 982.124.14.XT910.Retail.en.EU, which was system upgraded after I installed ICS (after a tragic bricking).
    This site might give you a head start about what's involved but be careful before 'diving in'. Like I said, it's a start, and going by the date it's not recent enough to follow IMHO.
    You really need to do you research about whether you want to go Retail or custom build, and which is stable and not bloated with unwanted apps that you won't be able to uninstall.

    Sorry I couldn't help more. This forum seems limited with participants.
    I have a question posted as well. Hundreds have viewed but not response to date. :angry:

    No, I ended up finding an ICS EU Retail guide. Sorry it's been a while since I unbricked the phone and I don't have that link anymore. Furthermore, I think online communities would be pushing JB so looking for ICS might be getting harder.

    I hear ya, but I have yet to find a web-guide to flashing your phone that guaranteed safe results. It's a fairly low-level technical procedure that, if you're not confident to do yourself, I'd highly recommend you find someone (locally) to help.

    Sorry I wasn't much help. My situation was very different, where my phone WAS bricked and I had nothing to lose. Fortunately it worked out for the better.

    I'll leave you with 2 links I found (while googling around) to flashing to JB EU, here and this YouTube clip...

    .

    Good luck!
