New Motorola Video Formally Introduces Android 4.0 For DROID RAZR/MAXX


If you’re anything like me, you’ve no doubt been calling, texting, and messaging all your friends n’ family, telling them that the Android 4.0 update for their Motorola Droid Razr/Razr Maxx is now ready for the downloading. That conversation could be a whole lot more brief (and less painful) if you simply share this short video, uploaded to Motorola’s YouTube channel today, introducing Razr users to Ice Cream Sandwich, and all the new features it brings. Check it out.

Pretty exciting, right? There are few greater joys in life than finally being able to partake in Android’s latest desserts. Here’s another link for those about to update, detailing the entire process directly from Verizon and Motorola. Make sure you have a full battery and godspeed.

  1. Really wish my Photo could get some love sooner then later

    1. Gaaaaah!!! Now I REALLY want a Droid RAZR =/

      1. You know, I feel Motorola hasn’t got enough credit for what they have done lately. I just picked up a MAXX after being forced by Verizon to upgrade before the dredded June 28th comes. I’ve been rocking my old Inc with CM7 nightlies and ICS roms for the past few years. While it was great, I must say I am very pleased with what Moto has baked into their newer phones, or at least this MAXX. Between Motocast (awesome!… allows me to have access to all my media on my PC at all times), Smart Actions (like Tasker but with much better interface), and their new Webtop ICS integration … this is the perfect phone for me. It’s also nice to see they kept the ICS pretty much stock looking. Oh, and the battery life … forget about it =)

  3. Too bad it isn’t live yet, razr users just got a message saying it would be updated in the next week.

  4. Crickets… has anyone received the update yet?

    1. Yes as of now. Working great

      1. I have MAXX wife has the white Razr she has not gotten it yet and I tried to pull it no luck.

  5. Not me. I did get a big notice on my phone saying I would get it within a week? How about you?

  6. Almost makes me wanna get a moto lol

    1. I almost said the same thing! Hahaha.. At the very least, I’ll recommend the Maxx to a few more people now.

      1. Wait for the razr hd *drools*

  7. Bout time. I was beginning to think us nexus users would see Jelly Bean first.

  8. Nothing yet… I’m still half expecting to find out that this is all just another hoax. I’ll try to suspend my disbelief.

    1. No hoax. Happen to wake up at 4 est and had notification. Took a while to download on a high speed internet. So beware. I have the Maxx and my wife has he white Razr. She still doesn’t have it. Running smooth at this point.

  9. That’s sick, ICS is killer. Now Sprint needs to get their crap together and start releasing ICS too.

  10. NO ICS for us ATRIX/Bionic/Photon users. so long Motorola. I’m done buying you’re phones

    1. Atrix is getting it Q3…chill dude

  11. How does one activate the multitasking page

    1. hold home.

  12. Cool… Yay, Motorola…

  13. Checking update, no, damn, checking update, no, damn, rinse and repeat, no, damn. The agony!

  14. Has anyone got the update yet?

  15. Wow they kept the UI pretty close to ICS, good job Moto

  16. Verizon just turned on LTE in my area. So I am getting LTE speeds and ICS added to my RAZR MAXX at the same time. Along with the 2 day battery life; I am happy as a clam. Great Phone.

  17. Downloading the update right now. WOW!

  18. got it :)

  19. come on.. are you guys really getting it?

    1. Yes happened to wake up at 4 est and had notification. On my high speed internet took a while. Have Maxx. Wife hasn’t gotten it yet on her white Razr.

  20. I downloaded it from a member on xda that gave me a link and now running it with no problems.

  21. @fazlaga care to share the link?

  22. RAZRs are down to less than 300 on ebay. luckily, i’m very prudent about charging and really don’t require a MAXX.

    trouble is i have a XOOM with ICS so why should i really upgrade ’til jellybean arrives on the next MOTO device.

  23. Go to xda droid razr section there is a thread with update file in it. Once download go to recovery and

  24. Okay, now I am actually excited for this update. I wasn’t at first, but this one for the Razr looks great. Any news on the UK release?

  25. I got the one week notice yesterday. Then got the download ready message when i woke up at 5 central today. LOVE IT! Worth the wait, but as soon as I put in in my Nav doc it defaults to VZNav and I haven’t figured out how to get rid of it. Any advice without a root???

  26. Anyone on the west coast get it yet?

  27. Hey, I use disable car home app. Works great.

  28. Lovin’ it.

  29. I’m still waiting for the update.. :-/
