We’re getting closer and closer to that Galaxy S3 Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update that’s rumored to be rolled out on August 29, shortly after the Galaxy Note 2 event, which we’ll be attending live,…
When Motorola unveiled the Droid Razr M, the Google-owned company promised that an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is guaranteed for the handset. Despite the commitment, it’s understandable that owners of the phone are more than prepared for a long wait, given Motorola’s rather patchy record of providing timely software updates for its devices.
It looks like the skeptics might be proven wrong, since the Jelly Bean firmware for the Droid Razr M has leaked online barely a month after the phone was released.
The leaked Jelly Bean is more than likely not a final release, but those who have braved the early build reported that it runs stable enough, with not too many bugs to be found. From the screenshot, the build number is 9.8.1_Q25, while the build date is October 12. So you can imagine how fresh the file is.
If you’re interested, the file, as provided by P3Droid at Twitter, is 255MB in size and it’s apparently can be flashed in stock recovery. But please remember you assume full responsibility if you decide to make the jump. Our advice is to wait for the final version or at least wait until it’s been further confirmed by others that it won’t cause future headaches.
