While Big Red may have just started pushing Jelly Bean to the OG RAZR/MAXX twins, the more modern HD variants of the devices are set to get a decent bug-fix-update as well. The details of the OTA just hit Verizon's support site, which generally means the update is ready to go and should begin rolling out within a few days.

Looks like it's going to bring fixes-a-plenty, covering everything from security to data roaming and Wi-Fi connectivity. Here's a slightly easier-to-read list:

  • Google Security Patches have been added for additional security
  • Data roaming fix has been implemented
  • Connection/disconnection detection has been improved when using USB
  • Improved Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Wallpaper options are shown when home screen icons are selected
  • Camera improvements have been made to touch-to-focus, notifications and low light performance
  • In-call audio routes to earpiece when connected to headset has been improved
  • Improvements to video streaming pixilation have been made
  • Media sync stability has been improved

We'll let you know as soon as it starts hitting devices.

      You can easily flash it yourself if you're this impatient. And you clearly are.

      I do care, as this is the phone I use. Though I'll wait to take the update to ensure it doesn't break root.

    A guy at my work got this yesterday. 4.1.2 on his razr maxx. The UI is so ugly. Funky colors and so much bloat. His app drawer was a mile long. But he did state improved performance. Better scrolling and the like

      You just called stock Android ugly...

      • cy_n_ic

        No i called Motos version of android ugly. This is no where near stock android you dolt. Ever hear of a nexus? Pfffft..

        • Ryan O’Neill

          What exactly are the "funky" colors? You mean the wallpaper? You know you can change that, right?

          • cy_n_ic

            Your shitting me?? Can you adjust the volume as well? And how do you do that?

    Question - I just rooted my droid razr maxx HD - will I lose my root if I install this update? Ive searched all over online and dont see any info on this since it's such a new update

    • Ryan O’Neill

      If you want to keep root, use Voodoo OTA Root Keeper to back up root and then replace root after the update. You'll also have to re-install Safestrap if you're using that.
      But beware - once you upgrade, you can't go back to ICS. So there's no way to root it again, if for some reason you lose root.

    So... Do we think this might trickle down to the M a well?
