Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD get Jelly Bean

Motorola Droid RAZR

As previously expected, the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is finally starting to arrive for owners of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR Maxx HD. Like all Verizon rollouts, the upgrade will arrive in phases.

How long the rollout will take can certainly vary. Lengths of a few weeks are not totally unheard of, though it is more likely it will take around a week. The key is to be as patient as possible, it will be here soon enough. You should receive an upgrade prompt when the update rolls around to you, but it isn’t a bad idea to manually check for it under the device settings, just in case.

With Android 4.1 you will get project butter speed improvements, Google Now support, improved browsing and many more great features that blow away ICS by comparison.

This might not be Android 4.2, like some were hoping, but it still shows that Motorola is much more committed to bringing the latest version of Android to its devices than it was before it became part of Google.

Has the update to Jelly Bean rolled out to your RAZR HD or RAZR Maxx HD yet? If so, what do you think of Jelly Bean’s performance on your smartphone so far?

    Would be nice if the original razrs got it first..You know, because they came out first.

    • Jared Persinger

      Well they will get it but it dosen’t make since to give it to last years model first

  • Would be nice if they were available in the UK. Really want the Maxx HD.

    Why is everyone obsessed with the Maxx HD. Its great, but its a little too thick. Mr RAZR HD has been getting 32 hours of battery life which is ideal for most
