Update: Verizon just posted on its official blog that the rollout is slated to begin today, June 22.

Verizon has just uploaded the official support documents for the RAZR / RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich update (which by the way will be build 6.16.211 – the same build that recently leaked). With the docs going live just moments ago, users should expect the update to officially start rolling out any day now.

The update, besides upgrading your device to Android 4.0.4 (including many of the features we've come to love like folder creation, data usage, etc), brings global roaming, improved Bluetooth audio quality for music enjoyment, and other various other improvements to Verizon apps and basic phone functions.

As always, those wishing to check for the update manually need only hit Menu > Settings > About Phone > System updates > Download. From there, you'll be prompted to download the update.

For more info about the update (and how to get it) check out Verizon's support docs here.

      And Jellybean's just about to be announced, so you can look forward to getting that around this same time next year.

    moyo sux still no ics for xoom fe the device they advertised as ics ready and a locked bootloader even though there is no carrier witi only

    • Brian

      I have ics on my xoom from an ota

  • Forrest Erickson

    For anyone else who's droid always reports that checking for an update is not available, in the dialer key in #35468#, immediately you should see a message saying "log check initiated" then reboot your phone and once you have a data connection try checking for the update again. I have had to do this for every update to my phone, still not sure why it does it.

    • Ffff

      Didn't work for me...still waiting :-(

  • Cody Shiranai

    This makes sense... considering Google OWNS Motorola now and as such get the direct line-EasyPass treatment to the updates now.  It shouldn't take so long next year with this "change of the guard".

  • Droidfan

    Got my update this morning.  Looks good. Still playing with it.

  • Joe S

    No sign of the update in the D.C. area yet.

  • Tim

    No update here yet.  Philly area, Razr MAXX not rooted.

  • Jamaar

    NO BODY DO WINDROID's ICS FLASH METHOD BELOW... I DID IT AND IT BRICKED MY PHONE

  • Bert Howard

    Just updated OTA to ICS! Verizon site still shows "coming soon".

  • Datercon

     Yeah, well let me tell you about ICS.  I waited patiently as all did for the ota instead of messing with Matt's utility etc. Well, I followed the ota and it has bricked my Razr numerous times since then.  I have wiped the system and rebooted per the Verizon tech 3 times now with the same result.  They are going to send my a refurbed Razr.  What a pile of crap!!  Tech support indicates that "Motorola is working on the problem".  What a bigger pile of crap.  When will the Verizon dominance end?
