    We have exciting news for owners of the Motorola Droid RAZR or Droid RAZR MAXX. The soak test we foretold last week has finally pushed out. Here's a quote from the Motorola email,

    Here's the file for those who want to try it out: Blur_Version.98.72.8.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip


    NOTE! This is the version which is for those who got (or secured) the Christmas Eve Jelly Bean LEAK ONLY!!

    To be sure, press the Menu button, then select "System settings", then scroll down and select "About phone". If you "System version" reads "98.72.8.XT912.Verizon.en.US" (without the quotes), then the link above will work for your phone.​


    This will NOT work for those who are on the official .211 ICS. It will simply fail upon attempt, so it shouldn't brick if you've tried accidentally.
    See the link to the .211 version at the bottom of this post as it was "tipped" to us! :biggrin:


    Here's a link to the Moto Release Notes, which will likely come in very handy: Motorola Droid RAZR & RAZR MAXX Jelly Bean Update Release Notes

    Don't forget that if you flash this, it will possibly take you off the upgrade path and you will lose root. For those undaunted by this... Enjoy!

    Thanks to our anonymous tipster!

    Update; The following link will take you to the upgrade version specifically for those RAZR owners who are sporting the Ice Cream Sandwich version 6.16.211 on their phones!
    If your "System version" reads "6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US" (again, without the quotes), the link below will work.


    So now we have both bases covered! > Blur_Version.6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip.

    It won't be much longer.

    I'm already know the Christmas leak so I guess I can be a little more patient for the official release.

    So is this file for those who got the Christmas update or those of us who did not?
    Thanks.

    Is it saying that anyone on the MFN will get an email or update this coming Sunday to upgrade? I am on the MFN, but have not gotten a survey from them and my profile is completely up to date.

    My download seems to have paused, says it will resume shortly. They must not know about the "no take backs" rule, hope they are not pulling the update.

    Someone I know who doesn't want to break the terms of secrecy for the soak did NOT lose root at all. Also am told circles is not included.

    Update was pushed to me about an hour ago. At first download was slow then progressed to complete in about twenty minutes. In restart mode now which says it takes 15 minutes. By the way, I am not part of any test group with Motorola. Verizon pushed OTA although they have not updated their website to include this update yet.

    Downloaded and installed, lost root, nothing else seems different really. Was using Nova launcher and widget locker, disabled those and went stock for awhile. Not really impressed so went back to using Nova and Widget locker.

    Honestly I don't think JB on these phones is anything like JB is on the Nexus 7 or Nexus 4 for sure. Guess this is good enough to hold me off until the Moto X phone or next great Nexus phone.
