Motorola DROID RAZR OTA Update Rolling Out Now From Verizon Wireless


Christmas will be arriving a little bit early for Motorola Droid Razr users. Verizon Wireless is currently rolling out a software update for the device that will fix a few issues customers have been experiencing with the kevlar reinforced smartphone. Some of the highlights from the 6.11.748 update include:

  • SIM error notification has been fixed
  • Improved camera features and quality
  • Improved stability of menu access, browser, phone dialer, video playback and music player to prevent force-close errors and lockups
  • Updated group message notification in e-mail
  • Improvement in 3G/4G data connectivity
  • Maintain network connection upon completion of a voice call
  • Background color has been adjusted to improve readability in Lapdock connection UI menu items.

You can either wait around for Verizon to notify you of the update, or you can take the more proactive route and check for it manually by jumping into your Settings > About Phone > System Updates. Have any of our readers received theirs yet?

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. yes, it fixes a few issues and so far no problems running it. can’t wait for ICS though

    1. You might be waiting a long time

  2. Got it today. So far so good. Looking forward to Ice Cream sandwich also.

    1. Yep, ICS on this thin beauty will be oh so awesome

  3. Still didn’t fix the My Accounts app from crashing. Oh well. Signal strength seems better and more consistent though… 

    1. Yup. Noticed my phone is getting a lil better reception. I mean for phone use, but data reception seems a lil better too.

      I live n work in a bad reception area so I can see improvements or no improvements easy.

    2. are you having problems with some of your accounts? My scrolling email widgets sometimes do not delete the messages as fast as i would love to.

  4. It breaks root.  I’m trying to re-root with DoomLord’s exploit.  First time didn’t work, but we’ll see.

    babadush, stop trolling.  Based on public statements from Motorola, the Razr will be one of the first phones updated, likely before the end of January.  Anyone with an ounce of self-control has no problem waiting.

    1. Update:  I had some sort of issue with my Motorola ADB drivers that was preventing the re-rooting.  Tried from a different computer and now I’m successfully re-rooted.  All set now until ICS comes out.

    2. I was gonna say I used a method that backed up root for me. That Voodoo root app.

      The method was for the leak, but it worked for the official OTA. Did everything from my phone

  5. ahhhh… Galaxy Nexus…. no problem getting root, no problem geting ICS, what a nice day it is. Glad I went with the Galaxy Nexus, wait was there any question?  Nope.

    1. Delete yourself

    2. Yea there is a question if you actually use a phone as a phone.

      No phone is perfect. Some folks just value different things. Me, I value using my phone as a phone first, everything else is 2nd.

      1. Then every single smart phone with a dial pad makes you happy, because all of them function as a phone.

        1. Maybe I shoulda said function good as a phone then…

          Cuz some ppl will overlook a phone that cant work good in bad reception areas….as long as it has a great gpu, great camera, custom ROMs and custom kernels.

  6. I recieved it.  Didn’t do a doggone thing about my data connectivity.  It continues to drop and disappear for periods of times.
