  2. I have also been checking since Thursday and nothing. Moto’s web site also still says expected to roll out in Q1 as if nothing has been announced. Almost like that blog post never happened.

  3. I keep checking al the time. “phone up to date!” LOL Right. ICS was a disaster and now I am waiting 9 months for the fix. Yesterday my notificaton kept cycling and my phone got hot! Had to do the soft reset multiple times. Missing email. Phone that goes dead after taking a picture, More soft resets. Phone that goes dead in the holster. Voice to text fails frequently. VZ was goig to give me my choice of new (refurb) phones but I waited. Now that I am asking again thy are ilent. Considering asking or a Razor Maxx HD or a GalaxyS3. My wife says to go back to HTC where I was happy. Perhaps I should go to Sprint. They have a tower on the hill behind my house!

  4. I know the soak update has been pulled and is available to download fro other sites. I think i’ll wait for the OTA to arrive, however.

  5. Guys, i spoke to Motorola and Jelly hasn’t officially been released. what was sent out was a test, once the test is officially over with, Jelly bean will then be sent out in batches over the next couple of days but there is no exact date of when the test will be over with but i am sure verizon and motorola will keep their promise and send it out within the month since it brings us to our 1st quater. Hang tight.

    • I was part of the test, and it was officially finished at 11:45 pm EST. Will now be sent out in batches starting “later this evening”

  6. I had an itch & got tired of waiting for JB OTA push & figured out how to manually download it. Am running 4.1.2 on my RAZR Max right now.

  7. I am just fed up with the RazorMaxx ICS debacle. If they do offer me a new (and different) phone, should I go for the Razor Maxx HD, the Galaxy S3 or something else? I love the RM battery. But perhaps a different manufacturer will be more responsive to upgrades. You guys are rather knowlegeable and probably have a variety of phones.

    • Well I got the Jelly Bean update this morning. 20 minute download. 20 minute install. Don’t really know what to say. My nice weather widget disappeared but everything else stayed the sme. All my apps are intact and the information is still intact. Gallery displays my pictures bigger and seems to categorize them. Perhaps someone has a guide out. Still not sure I’m staying with this phone. Software or hardware, the problems have gotte to me. the heating phone (pocket warmer substitute) seemed to break the straw the other day.

  8. I call bullshit on Motorola and verizon. Just saying they released it so we would stop asking. Definitely last Motorola phone I’m ever getting.

  9. The update is not OFFICIALLY released neither by Verizon nor Motorola. The Motorola site still says to be released in Q1 and VZW says SOON….Patience people!

  10. Sorry to disappoint everyone, but this is not actually the case (if you believe the two different Motorola reps I chatted with tonight. They both confirmed that although both Motorola pages: and state that the update began rolling out as of 3/7 (as does the Verizon site:, it has only been released to restricted users for testing purposes. They said the first Motorola page was just for “informational purposes”. They couldn’t respond at all to the second page I listed above. Of course, they could say nothing about Verizon. Totally misleading.

  11. I did the manual update. Things seem to be working fine. If you are tired of waiting you should check out he gives the links to the file you need and walks you through it.

    I like it so far – Phone seems way faster and doesn’t lag when loading pictures. The Google search assistant aka “Better than Siri” is updated and better. I’m not too crazy about the gallery, but maybe I’ll find a cool app for that.

  12. I just got it. I went into settings and was able to start the update. It takes about 2 hours to download and then install the update

    • Mine only took an hour but I was using 4G for the download. So far so good. I like Google Now so far although I haven’t figure out all the features yet.

  13. lol people. Just learn how to work your phone. Don’t wait for an OTA update. Just download the zip file of the update to your SD card and reboot in recovery mode. There’s at least 5 places online where you can get this file. I got it, and it made my Razr the phone it was always supposed to be. It’s amazing, and I’m stoked about it. Don’t wait for VZ to send you the update, as Moto has already released it. 🙂 smile

  14. Mine is updating now. I was wondering why it got so hot all of a sudden! I wish it gave me the option to wait until tonight when it was on the charger.

  15. got it in Ann Arbor. Pretty slick and so far I think my phone runs better on JB than it was on ICS. In the last few weeks, it was getting overheated somehow. Google now meets all expectations. 🙂

  16. DUTCHITGUY – SOL.. nothing yet and the Motorola and Verizon sites say it has been out for 11 days or more now. According to Verizon support it is a tiered deployment and doing a manual check will do nothing for you.

  17. update worst deal ever!!! phone apps dont work, pics lost, social media sharing gone, wifi no connection.. to name a few… oh yeah sd card no good all pics gone from there too!!! cant wait to get rid of this phone!!!droid sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
