Just a week ago we reported that a Jelly Bean soak test was in progress for the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX, and that it would start rolling out in phases. Now Verizon has officially began pushing the update out to more users.

The new update is 338MB in size and brings with it all the Jelly Bean goodness you’ve been dreaming of. This includes features like Google Now, an improved notification bar, Google Chrome and so much more.

In many ways the update makes you feel like you have a whole new phone, ditching the old BLUR software suite in favor of newer Google apps. Really isn’t too surprising, as Motorola has been pushing back its old Motorola bloatware for a while now. In fact, this update brings the Motorola RAZR and RAZR MAXX pretty close to a true stock Android experience.

When the update becomes available to you, your phone have a notification pop up. Still, it doesn’t hurt to start mashing that update button now on occasion just in case. While most of you already know this, for those that don’t, simply navigate to ‘System Updates’ under ‘About Phone’ in the Settings section.

Now that your RAZR or RAZR MAXX finally has Jelly Bean, will you be sticking with the phone for a bit longer or are you ready to trade-up as soon as your contract expires?
