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

    My tablet does not have "pull down" menus, nor do I feel that the Razr got the short end of the stick. I am not sure what you mean by "real JB"...? The phone OS operates faster for me as compared to ICS. JB was always intended to be a small improvement over what ICS brought. GB to ICS was a major overhaul. ICS to JB was a refinement. Not sure what you were expecting? Nor did Motorola/Verizon claim it to be a overhauled OS upgrade.

    There was a ton of excitement and I believe the delays and constant talk about it built the JellyBean experience to be more than what it really is. As I stated before, I knew what to expect.

    I agree about the Gb to ICS being major. And ICS to JB is not a huge step up. Iv'e never used a Zoom so I can't comment on that. I have a Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus that are both the running 4.22 JB and the Razr update looks nothing like these updates. You can't swipe down from the top right of the Zoom and access the quick toggles? And swipe down from the top left to access notifications?

    No my Xoom has 4.1.2 JellyBean and does not have the swipe options you listed. Appears you are trying to compare 4.1.2 (which the Razr has) vs. 4.2.2 and honestly is not an even comparison. My Xoom will not receive any further updates beyond 4.1.2 and I am sure the Razr will be in the same boat with 4.1.2

    The Xoom (WiFi version) was considered one of the first GED devices, but no more updates for it.

    Sorry I meant Xoom. JB had those toggles on 4.1 as well. 4.22 is just the current version. Yes Moto products got the short end of JB. Once you've tried a device with pure Google JB you will know what I mean. Why is Android OS on top of my battery usage stats everytime? This wasn't the case with ICS. And battery life has defiantly shortened with the 4.1.2 update. But I have a Maxx so it's not a huge issue.

    Don't Do it!!!

    Don't be like me and get fooled into thinking that the JB UPDATE will be better!!
    I am TRULY BUMMED that I can no longer use FoxFi.
    I already pay for unimited data, and now it looks like I am going to have to root, or pay for more "unlimited" data.
    I must be (deeep down inside!!) Afraid of rooting because I seem to be putting it off... I should have rooted my first Android phone - a Droid X, - almost three years ago.
    I would have become proficient enough at "Rooting", as well as all the different "MODS" that can be had to help ANYBODY THAT NEEDS HELP to "UPGRADE" their phone.
    I am a great salesperson, and once I have a working, rooted and NON VERIZON WI-FI TETHERED (FoxFi'd) phone - the servers at the Root Suppliers websites (like this one) will be getting HOT!!!
    Right now, (and sporting a stock Droid Razr Maxx (XT912)), I feel like a dummy for not READING THE DROID FORUM'S just before I installed the "New Update". DON'T DO IT!!!
    All help and words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yea I have a Maxx as well. Bottom line for me is that I am happy with JB 4.1.2 update for both of my devices. I've enjoyed my motorola devices, they work together well and work as I need them to. I really don't have any complaints between the two devices. Honestly I just happy both are more or less up to date. All up to the user as some are happy and some are upset.
