Testers receive new RAZR/RAZR MAXX ICS builds


Testers who own the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX have received new test builds, 6.16.211, of their Ice Cream Sandwich-laden update promised to be here by the end of Q2 2012.

Motorola’s initial promise has the deadline for a full-scale OTA rollout landing June 30th, and if this latest test proves to be stable enough for everyday use it looks like they’re mighty close to meeting that goal.

If you don’t remember, Verizon notified owners of the devices that the update would be on its way soon, though they didn’t given any details outside of a minor preparation tip for the absence of My Verizon on the new update.

With today’s news and knowledge of Motorola’s target date, it’s safe to say that many will be drenched in sweet, sweet ice cream soon enough. [via Droid-Life]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. It’s sad how long it takes to rollout ICS with manufacturers, ICS has been out for over half a year… This is a little ridiculous

    1. 6 months to build a custom os over the top of an os? Not that long..

      1. They didn’t build a custom OS. They tweaked an existing OS with code that they already had.

    2. You my friend are infuckingpatient.

      1. We’re friends?

        1. In is latin for not. In+ p becomes imp. In+ f remains inf. Linguistic rules of pronunciation guide this mechanism. Therefore I think Jeffrey was right writing infuckingpatient. :)

          1. Wow. That is all. 0.0

    3. Oh stop complaining. If we got it sooner on the Razr, you would have moaned about your apps not being compatible, because ICS has just released.

      I’m glad its come later for Razr, as the developers have had more time to make their apps work better for ICS.

      A lot of people are acting like ICS is going to make their phone a God…

  2. Very sweet indeed

  3. I’ve already been left at the ICS alter a few times and being jilted hurts. Maybe it’s for real this time.

    1. And they were NOT spam. Re-read your link.

  4. I’ll drench YOU in sweet,sweet ice cream

  5. just rum a custom rom like eclipse….. its great. speed, battery, and overall great looks:)

  6. I sorta agree that 6 months is a long time but I totally understand that it’s not entirely the manufacturer’s fault.

  7. You guys are still getting it wrong! They notified about the verizon IM app, NOT MY VERIZON. You’d think u guys would be more accurate by now

    1. Try and get laid, I don’t think it’s that serious

  8. Maybe six months isn’t a long time, but it’s been seven months (and THAT’S a long time!)

  9. This isn’t a soak test. This is a user who used cheesecake to pull a file from moto’s servers.

  10. The chance of this hitting everyone by 6/30 is 0. If this is a Motorola test through their forum members as they often do, that means they haven’t signed off and sent it to Verizon yet. As we Nexus owners know all too well, Verizon can drag out their testing for a month or more before rolling it out. I think 7/30 is a more likely release date.

    1. In the past its been about 4-7 days after the testers get it before its released, not 6 weeks. I’m guessing verizon has already signed off on anything released to tge moto networks testers.

  11. It seems I picked up my Droid RAZR MAXX just in time…

  12. Aren’t we all testers? Nothing about Android says “final product”. And if it does, they should be ashamed.
