    JUST AN UPDATE... I am waiting for OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION, but a Razr Maxx HD user managed to take the Update via OTA 4.1.2 keep Root with Voodoo. The User managed to use DROID_RAZR_HD_Utility 1.10 and was ABLE TO DOWNGRADE TO ICS 4.0.4.

    Early discussion below on JB 4.1.2
    See my post response here for the update....

    Well, this is not what I was expecting or anything close as there no mention of a "newer" Jelly Bean offering (like 4.2) to be released. But looks like this update is directed towards improvements and to fix mostly bugs, and also I imagine adding extra stuff not necessarily needed.

    Anyhow, if you happen to have Root, I suggest enabling Voodoo before taking this update this is as precaution just in case this update tries to unroot your phone.

    By the looks of it, most likely 4.1.2. Just a maintenance update. That'd be my guess.

    So has this update been released via OTA because I go to hit the system update option in "about phone" and gives me the message that I'm up to date. Any answers?
    Note: rooted on 4.1.1

    Update HAS been released by Verizon. All areas do not get update concurrently.

    PLUS... Motorola is working on their own update... totally separate from this one.

    Pardon me for asking, but where does this information come from? Verizon and Motorola releasing updates to a Motorola device independently...that's unusual...not impossible, just unusual.

    Came directly from Motorola... Not Verizon. There are many posters on the Motorola Forum that already
    have the update.

    Not sure what you're reading. I just signed out of the Motorola RAZR MAXX HD Forum and I didn't see any member discussing a recent update. Are you sure you weren't in the Razr/MAXX Support Forum... they just got updated to JB last week.

    I ask a guy at tech support yesterday(friday 15th) why the normal update process has bee down a couple weeks and he said it was for some bugs they did not like and a new update was coming soon and released slowly as to not over burden the servers
    I wish it were 4.2 thats the one I'm waiing for but I think it just just be some bug fixes

    Looks like after all is said and read, only time will tell what we MAXX HD owners get, and when we get it. I hate "time", I like "now"...:D

    I highly doubt the updates are different.the moto update is a small maintenance release just like the one described in the Verizon information.I can't confirm or deny anything except to say that it's usually a week between user testing (ie soak) and the actual release.it could be shorter or longer depending on tester response.

    I know there are people claiming they have the update but I've seen no screen shots and no info from devs. Some could have it by accident though. if Verizon is releasing this update early accidentally then it would just be a replay of the razr Christmas update situation.

    I heard from a confidential source that it will be out tomorrow for testing.

    I'm not liking the fact that a downgrade isn't possible or there is no SBF/FXZ option for the flashing to stock. Once the update is applied.

    Does this mean that the Komplete root method will not work once this update is applied since it requires downgrading? Thinking I better root this sucker now.
