    Instructions for manual update. Scroll to where it says update number 5 because the ota must have been pulled it must have been a mistake or something they probably updated on accident

    Works awesomely major improvement so far but no Circle Widget hum? Screen seams crisper and more responsive. A lot less lag.
    Download Air push
    before shut down copy from root cache folder to external sd card.
    Boot into AP (hold pwr+vol up/dwn)
    select recovery then
    Wait for android boot animation to load
    Select install update from external source
    Select update
    Presto use voodoo ota root keeper to reroot
    Enjoy.

    From what's being said, you must be on .211 to update. Roll back using Matt's Droid RAZR Utility 1.8 available in the Droid RAZR Hacks under the stickies, I believe.

    No, this will not install over either .214 or .215. The file name (Blur_Version.6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip), has the version number that it will work with in the filename. Any attempts to install on any other version will fail. Likewise, even if you are on .211 but deleted any of the pre-installed apps, the update will fail. You must be in a fully working, stock .211 OS for this update to work.

    Getting back to stock .211 can be accomplished by using the Droid RAZR Utility by Matt L Groff, found here (Droid Razr Utility 1.82 [Windows] For Verizon Droid Razr And Droid Razr Maxx Only - DroidRzr.com). The first link for the download is by registration only, but the second link is completely free and will start immediately. Once you download the utility, you'll also need to make sure you have the proper drivers installed on your computer. Then run the utility and follow directions in that thread to flash back to .211. If you are rooted or wish to root and retain root once you update, you'll need to also install the Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper from the menu and then run it, protect root, then temp-unroot before installing Jelly Bean. Then you can install the new Jelly Bean update (if you wish). Once Jelly Bean is fully installed and working properly, you will run the Rootkeeper again and restore root.

    Remember, proceed at your own risk.

    Im completely stock, currently on .211. I downloaded and installed the update via recovery. I received no errors, and rebooted accordingly. Nothing is different, and still have android 4.0 version .211...anyone have any guesses?

    That's strange.

    Your "About phone" page should look like the one below;

    Dammit. I can't get Matt's Utility to work; drivers will not install and I can't get then from Motorola's website. Am I screwed? Is there a .182 sideload?

    Depending on what model phone you have, there are tools. For the XT-912, information is below.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-hacks/216562-droid-razr-utility-1-8-a.html is what you need, but the actual file you need to download is Droid Razr Utility 1.82 [Windows] For Verizon Droid Razr And Droid Razr Maxx Only - DroidRzr.com if you are going back to .211. I don't know of a .182 roll-back method.
