    Owners of the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX will likely be thrilled to hear this news. Apparently a soak test for Jelly Bean on these devices will begin soon. Here's a snippet of the email that was sent out to devs and testers,

    If this soak test is successful, then we could see Jelly Bean on the device within a week or two! This calls for a droid happy dance. ===> dancedroid

    YAY! I started to get the premature release in December, but it hung up on my phone and never completed the download. I will be doing the droid happy dance when I'm finally upgraded to Jelly Bean! dancedroid

    I got the email 2 days ago, but since I'm on the Maxx HD, I had to pass :-( Excited to see it!

    Not going to upgrade until FoxFi is working on Jelly Bean.

    You can only decline the ota I think 3 might be 4 times before it updates automatically.

    That's very disappointing. I guess it will be PDAnet for me.

    PDAnet = FoxFi

    brucin, if you truly do not want to update to JB 4.1.2 and stay in ICS 4.0.4 to keep using FoxFi. Then you could just install the .215 ICS leak and that should take you off the update path. Just a suggestion.

    Or you can "freeze" the updater.

    Freezing the updater seems to require root.

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear. I meant I would have to use USB tether with PDAnet. That will still work in Jelly Bean correct?

    I've been running leaked version since Christmas no issues whatsoever better battery life too. How much of a step up improvement from that versus the OTA remains to be seen.
