[Update: Rollout Starts Feb. 12th] Motorola Begins Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) Rollout For The Electrify M On US Cellular

[Update: Rollout Starts Feb. 12th] Motorola Begins Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) Rollout For The Electrify M On US Cellular

Update: We've heard from US Cellular that the rollout will begin on February 12th - apparently someone jumped the gun on the update page.

After promising to do so in Q1 2013 back in December, Motorola has officially begun rolling out Android 4.1.2 to the Electrify M on US Cellular. The Electrify M is basically a de-Verizoned RAZR M, so it makes sense that the Electrify's update follows after its DROID kin's.

LG Lucid And Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 Both Receiving OTA Updates Soon

LG Lucid And Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 Both Receiving OTA Updates Soon

If you're the lucky (debatable) owner of a Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 or LG Lucid, good news - you're about to get an OTA update! Verizon just posted new update docs on its support site for both devices.

201211081951140327347_1594268202 20121115230455427159442_3619409793

The Tab 7.7's update is about as minor as you can get, though, offering reduced electrical consumption when charging... while powered off. We're guessing that's not what this update is actually about though.

Motorola Photon Q Receiving Minor OTA Update (Software Version ASA-14)

Motorola Photon Q Receiving Minor OTA Update (Software Version ASA-14)

If you have a Motorola Photon Q, time to start the ritualistic checking for updates: a new OTA is headed out this morning. Software version 7.7.1Q-6_SPR-125_ASA-14, the first update since the ASA-10 maintenance release in October, will get your Q running the latest and greatest. And no, it's not Jelly Bean (though the Q will be getting Jelly Bean... at some point). The changelog isn't much of a log, either:

- Various fixes to improve overall device stability

But hey, bug fixes are bug fixes, and that's probably going to make someone somewhere happy.
