Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD receiving update to build 9.16.6

The Motorola Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD are receiving a new update today. It’s one Verizon told us about last week, and subsequently rolled out to a small group of testers. Now available to all, the new software brings the phone to build number 9.16.6, a minor upgrade that improves audio quality, connectivity, and camera performance.

The update brings new Google Security Patches in addition to a number of smaller tweaks and fixes. After installation, users likely won’t notice any major changes, but should enjoy a more pleasant experience overall. To check to see if the software is ready to pull to your device, navigate to “About phone” under the “Settings” menu and select “System updates.”

    Installed smoothly for me. No issues so far…

    • Matt Laney

      How do you like your phone? I’ve never had the chance to mess with one much.

      • Board373

        I love my Razr MAXX HD. I’ll admit at times I wish it was ‘snappier’ which is why I am thrilled about the apparent improvements this update brought, but I knew when I got this phone what it’s strengths and weaknesses are. It is plenty fast and battery last forever, after all what good is a quad core, 2GB ram phone with full 1080p when battery is dead…

    Install went smoothly for me as well this morning. I actually feel like 4.1.2 is snappier than the previous 4.1.1, but it could all be in my head…Anyone else feel like phone is more responsive?

  • ethan

    It hardly lags now. Everything is faster and more responsive. Finally!

  • Scott

    Has anybody else had their phone restart on it’s own after the update? Mine has twice so far.

    • Board373

      I have not yet…I’ll let you know if it does happen…

    • Bruce Harrington

      Yup. Freeze in an app, wait a few seconds, restarts. Restarted not in app as well.

    • ~Daughter of Gallifrey~

      Mine has randomly frozen and restarted five times now since this morning’s update.

    • Tracy O’Connor Drake

      Not restart, but weird cycling between apps when a call came in. Maybe because I was running Pandora? Haven’t tried that again. Not happy with new defaults that I can’t change and it’s a HUGE deal that I can’t send group email anymore.

  • Craig Majer

    Installed and runs flawlessly for me. I ran Pandora, navigation and handled phone calls simultaneously without hiccup. I love this phone and its great battery life.

  • Tim

    Hopefully the “connectivity” issue for wifi. My wifi connection drops constantly no matter which network I am on.

  • Kevin Shatzkamer

    Anyone else notice lots of freezing of the Razr Maxx HD? I find, especially in Chrome, the phone just stops working.

  • Razr HD user

    9.16.6 VZ to VZ text msg no longer shows confirmation. Just a “Sent” icon. The “Check box” was nice feature so you know who is “in” and who is not. Especially when you wish to know if your kids phone was ON and receiving msgs. PLEASE FIX IT! Razr HD user.. .. ..

  • Android guy

    The new upgrade sucks!! I used to love my phone. With any updates I give it a few days before making a determination. Few days has passed and I hate it. My RAZR is running choppy it has slowed down. If I can roll back I would.

  • Tracy O’Connor Drake

    “… likely won’t notice any major changes…” Are you kidding? This upgrade has radical changes in it and some functions have disappeared. Anyone know where to go for help on this one? I have LOTS of questions. :(
