Motorola Electrify M (US Cellular’s RAZR M) getting Android 4.1.2


Motorola has been rolling out Jelly Bean updates for many of its handsets around the globe lately, including the DROID RAZR M/RAZR I. It only makes sense, then, that US Cellular’s Electrify M — a rebranded RAZR M — wasn’t far behind. This should be a standard affair for any Android user by now, but in case you’re not used to getting a big software upgrade there are a few things to keep in mind.

For starters, this might be a staggered roll-out process, meaning some will get it before others. Everyone will eventually receive a notification to download and install it, so don’t fret if you don’t see yours right away. If you didn’t get a notification you can always check for the upgrade in Settings > About Phone, though this method doesn’t always work either.

Some pre-game warmups aren’t a bad idea, either — make sure to charge your phone to at least 50%, and turn that WiFi radio on to ensure a fast download and to save your mobile bandwidth allotment. US Cellular even claims that you won’t be able to get the download unless your WiFi radio is on, so that might be something to check if you can’t get the upgrade to pull down.

Let’s get into all the goodies you’ll be getting once it’s all said and done! The standard assortment of Android 4.1-specific features will be in tow, such as Google Now, Project Butter, improved notifications, face unlock, and more. These features really are as great as everyone says they are so make no delay in grabbing them. Find more info at US Cellular’s site.

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.
