    They said all 2011 phones would get JB or a $100 voucher if it wasn't possible. They said this over the summer. Have you heard something new? Please post the article.

    A week to two months?? It took 6 EXTRA months to get ICE. All these sweet names has someone on a sugar high of hope. I too hope it comes within a couple months but here goes anxious chatter.

    So then we could post about JB for a year, during which time one or two more Android versions could be released, LOL

    If the OG Razr/Razr Maxx were to get JB by the end of the year this would be a direct result of the new "near stock" blur. The reason why phones take so long to get upgraded is because they have to figure out how to make the OS work with their skin without breaking it. The other hold-up is the carrier. That's why the Motorola xoom wi-fi which is not a Nexus, got JB before the Galaxy Nexus.

    that's not the only challenge though, having to re-write drivers and library files are also needed for the hardware to function with the OS.

    We may see a faster turn around time with JB from ICS because they are fairly similar, unlike from Gingerbread to ICS which took FOREVER, due to the fact that the systems were so different, Motorola (and other companies) had to completely re-write EVERYTHING for the phones that had already been released and aren't as important to the time table.

    Honestly, Google is to blame, they only code in the drivers for the Nexus devices (who can blame them) and let the manufacturers do the rest.

    I am a pc developer not mobile, so I may be off base, but I find it hard to believe the drivers would need to be rewritten for an incremental OS upgrade using the same kernel. Also that does not explain why the Xoom is not a Nexus and it is always the first to see updates. Even before some Nexus devices.

    Jelly Bean is almost entirely under the hood upgrades to ICS. Pushing JB without new drivers is equivalent to trying to run a fuel injected engine with a carburetor without any modifications.
