    Just a couple of days ago we shared that Verizon was having a soak test for their Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD superphones. There obviously was no official word on whether it was Jelly Bean or just an incremental update. Luckily today we have some news suggesting it is likely to be Jelly Bean and that it might be coming very soon. A Verizon support doc showed up detailing a new Jelly Bean update for the Droid RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD. Here's what the doc said,

    Now, of course, this could just be a support doc that has been premade for a future update; however, with the news of the soak test just a couple of days ago, it seems likely that this will become a reality very soon. Share your enthusiasm in the thread! dancedroid

    UPDATE: According to Verizon the update will begin rolling out next week to RAZR HD/Maxx HD users.

    Is it safe to apply the update with apps disabled like Verizon Video, Color, and VZ Navigator or should I enable them and reboot before I do the upgrade?

    Does it add/remove any bloat?

    Yes and yes. From the Verizon PDF:
    + Video calling portal and Accessories Application has been preloaded.
    + Verizon Video has been removed.
    + Color Application has been removed.
    + Fully integrated Amazon app suite has been preloaded (includes Kindle, Amazon MP3,
    IMDb, Audible, and Zappos).

    It's probably the same as on 4.0.4. You can disable some but others you can't. I think I have 6 or 8 disabled now but the Verizon Apps store for instance, can't be disabled.

    At least the OG RAZRs are slated next though, no other phone on VZW in between that I know of, Bionic will surely be after the OG RAZRs.

    So, once again, the Bionic is ignored!

    When I went from ICS to JB on my Razr M, I did not enable my disabled apps before the update. I had no problems. I did have to go back and disable them again and I noticed that some I had disabled in ICS could no longer be disabled in JB (stock text is one example).

    As long as you disabled the apps through the stock app manager you can leave then disabled. If you froze them with a third party app you'll have to defrost them before an update.

    Make sure the superuser app is updated as well as the binaries and download VooDoo Root Keeper from the Market, run it to protect root, then before upgrading run the Temp Unroot option from the app, upgrade, then use the app to restore root.

    Thank you dfcfu342 and TisMyDroid! I think I'm all set then! TisMyDroid, I really hope they let us change the lock screen apps with JB. I just want to trade the text app to something useful!
