So what say you?? Will Motorola come out with an ICS bug fix, or just upgrade everyone to Jelly Bean?
My $0.02 says we're going straight to Jelly Bean (as they promised)!
That's why we hear nothing about an ICS bug fix.
They let out a couple of leaks to placate those of us who needed a fix, but to put a great deal of manpower into a fix is not as smart as just getting Jelly Bean right the first time!
So let's hear your 2 cents on the issue! :biggrin:

I'm not holding my breath that the Maxx will ever get Jelly Bean, and if it does I think it'll be a year at least.

There are some that had problems with battery, data, etc on ICS. For the Razr, most of those that did a factory data reset did not have problems with ICS and those that had problems, were fixed after doing an fdr... for most. There were a few that were not so lucky and had to return phones or do a few additional fdr's to solve their ICS bugs/problems.

Jelly Bean is the next operating system update. It is very similar to ICS with some added features. The upgrade to jellybean will not be as drastic as the change going from gingerbread (the previous OS) to ICS.

I would like to also remind people that there are many members that are new to Android and with the many new releases of Android phones, there will continue to be members who are owning an Android phone for the first time and don't understand everything "Android" like those who have had Android for years. This forum is meant for all...those new to Android and those that know a lot about Android. It is what makes this forum successful and advances the success of Android in general. I personally like the success of Android and want to continue to encourage that success. With that idea in mind, it is the purpose of this forum to help everyone be successful with their Android phones and to answer their questions to the best of our ability so that they can experience the same kind of success we've had.

IMHO, Jelly Bean is going to disappoint. My moto Xoom first upgrades to ICS then a few months later to JB and the biggest difference is that JB slowed it down a whole lot. On top of that there are really not much groundbreaking improvements that I can see (on the xoom) so my guess is that it will be a big letdown to anyone with a RAZR that is waiting impatiently for it.

Jelly bean isn't a huge change. Ics is very visible in jb. My n7 tablet is very similar to my maxx's.

There's a few key differences.. jb on the n7 doesn't have a manage apps area.. its accessed from the settings menu.

Then there's Google now, I don't use it.. and also the stock browser is chrome.. so if you need flash, you need to download another browser..

Project butter made jb on the n7 smooth.. but its a nexus device

Idk what moto did with jb on the zoom... does it have a lot of tweaks done to it??

Jelly Bean is a huge improvement over Gingerbread but not Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. I saw Gingerbread as a step backward from froyo in some regards.

You'll likely get an ICS bugfix once the Bionic gets ICS (our ICS builds have fixed most of the issues you folks are having) - since Moto has moved to a "unified build" philosophy, this should be easy. I expect that once that is complete, a "unified build" of JB will go into development for the Bionic/RAZR/MAXX/D4 family of devices and if the "unified build" actually works as intended, all of these devices should receive a JB update in a timely fashion. From what I've seen lately, this seems to be something Moto/Google is pushing VERY hard for (read: demanding).

I thought it was on the list of devices expected to receive it at some point?

IMO, the ICS update has been pretty smooth as a whole. I remember when the Droid X had updates and it seemed like there were huge amounts of bugs. For the Razr it has basically been "I don't like the way it looks" or "this feature is no longer here."

Bring on JB (although I'm not gonna hold my breath).

For the first 4 months gb WAS a step back from froyo lol.

All jb is is an add on to ics. The only hold up could be getting ics working correctly, because if they don't.. then the jb experience will be greatly diminished. Which would suuuuck. :D
