    Well, went through all the steps and it didn't work. Got the error. Now it's stuck on the the Red logo.
    Trying to quickly download Matt's DroidRazrUtility so that I can unbrick it.
    Any ideas on how to turn the phone off?

    Seriously people, you are prob gonna soft brick at least once. I would already have Matt's utility ready to go before I started this process.

    Yes "Wipe data/Factory reset" will wipe the whole phone completely.

    Yea you will, this is the official "OTA", even if you're rooted you will get prompted to update, but will have to unroot to actually install it.

    Hold down the Power button and the Volume Down (-) button at the same time for about 10 seconds.

    Which of course leads me to the following question ('cause I'm itchin' to do this) I am rooted. The first thing that Matt writes in the tutorial is that you have to unroot. But how? Does unrooting take place if one correctly follows the procedure that he lays out? Ie: STEPS TO UPDATE TO ICS:
    1. Download the official OTA "Blur_Version.6.12.181.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip " file from above.
    2. Place the file downloaded in step one into the ROOT of your EXTERNAL SD card. (DO NOT UNZIP THE FILE)
    3. Turn off phone.
    4. Go into recovery by pressing and holding the Volume Up (+), Volume Down (-), and Power button all three at the same time. (Press and hold all physical buttons.)
    5. The menu will come up and select "Recovery".(Volume Down key to go down and Volume Up key to SELECT/ENTER Recovery.)
    *The Android and Exclamation mark logos will come up*
    6. Press both Volume Up (+) and the Volume Down (-) buttons at the same time. Release.

    Etc. etc.?? Thanks.

    You can use Voodoo (it's an app, the full name is something like Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper) to unroot, then install ICS, then use Voodoo to re-root.

    Actually, I had to get into fast boot, and then it gave me an option to power down.
    I will probably get the phone up and running on GB, and wait until tonight to try again. LOL

    I deserve this for trying to update while at work. ;)

    So unrooting will be a easy process to do if I i install this manual ics? I been waiting for the ota for a minute now so I would rather install in manually and if Verizon sends out updates I want to be able to receive them without any complications.

    Whenever I run Matts utility, it gives me an error saying "the system cannot find the path specified"? What am I doing wrong here?

    You need to unzip the utility and put it on the root of your C: drive.

    My Razr is still on the Motorola screen, and has been for 10 minutes after updating and rebooting O_O Should I be worried?

    Now it says my device is locked...is that because I have a lock screen password?
