Although by now you’ve probably learnt by heart what to expect from ICS on your Razr devices, here’s a demo video that Motorola just posted to get your heart racing once more.

After a rollercoaster ride made of various Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade rumors for the Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx, we can finally confirm that the two Android handsets will get Android 4.0.4 in the following days.
Verizon has posted software upgrade instructions for the handsets on its website, and you should prepare your RAZR version for the upcoming over-the-air (OTA) download. The carrier details two ways of getting the OTA upgrade: OTA User Initiated and OTA Server Initiated.OTA User Initiated From the Home screen, tap the Menu Key > tap Settings > About phone > System updates > Download. Once the download has [...]
If you own a Verizon Motorola Droid RAZR or RAZR Maxx smartphone and you started losing your patience waiting for an official OTA update to Android 4.0, (which has been several times delayed and rescheduled), you might only have to wait for a few more days.
According to mattlgroff from droidrzr.com, Verizon pushed out an ICS build to the Motorola Feedback Network, which are basically beta testers that put new builds to their paces before Big Red pushes them to the general public. Usually, this testing is one of the last stages before a general rollout. Assuming that the Feedback team won’t find some catastrophic bugs that Verizon can’t fix within a week, [...]
Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx owners will be thrilled to hear that the waiting may be over and that the update they were waiting for, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, is on the way. Motorola confirmed a few weeks ago that the two handsets will get ICS in the following six weeks, but the company failed to specify a precise roll out date.
Today’s news comes from Phandroid, which has “received word from a reader that Verizon is sending text messages to Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx customers to let them know that Android 4.0 is on its way.”
The online publication points out that during the ICS update, the My Verizon app will be [...]
There was a glimmer of hope that the Motorola Droid Razr and Razr Maxx would get their Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade on June 12, but that day came and passed without so much as a whiff of an ice cream serving. It looks like that “source within Verizon” that CNET cited last week has proven to be less than accurate. So when is the update coming for the two phones?
Responding to a question asked on the company’s Twitter account about the release schedule of ICS for Droid Razr, they replied that there’s no date set yet for the upgrade. This leaves owners of the phone to hang on to what Motorola has written on its ICS roadmap, which states that the “ICS upgrade roll out begins [...]
We were about to lose hope to see Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on Moto devices in a relatively timely manner. But just now, Motorola has decided to update its support page to let owners know about the lengthy process that it has to go through before it can roll out ICS. We know you’re not too keen to know the gritty details, so to keep things short, ICS is indeed coming to several Moto devices soon, while some just aren’t lucky.
According to the latest Motorola guidance on Ice Cream Sandwich availability, the Motorola Droid Razr and the Razr Maxx will be the first two Moto phones in the US to receive the ICS update, which the company plans to roll out in the second [...]
Does anyone remember that rumor we reported on just last week of a blue Motorola Droid RAZR hitting Verizon? Well, that’s not a rumor anymore, as Big Red has confirmed the official release of the new version of the phone.
The blue Droid RAZR will hit Verizon’s shelves, both online and offline, on May 17 (the day after tomorrow), which is one day before the suspected date from last week. And if you thought that the release was going to be an insignificant event that would go without much attention from the nation’s biggest mobile carrier, you thought wrong.
A short promotional video has hit YouTube the other day and shows us the new Droid RAZR in action. The clip [...]
Verizon’s Motorola Droid Razr wasn’t exactly a poor smartphone when it first saw the light of day, back in October 2011, but it quickly became uncool. The Droid Razr Maxx’s release in January probably hurt the original Razr the most, but the fact that the phone was never updated to Ice Cream Sandwich (and probably never will be) didn’t help it one bit.
However, Verizon and Motorola seem to still have faith in the Razr and are preparing to offer the device in a new color variation starting in just a couple of weeks. The source of the rumor is a leaked “inventory screens” which shows the Razr wearing in a snazzy cyan outfit.
The documents show that the spanking [...]
Unlocking the bootloader on the Motorola Droid Razr might have been impossible before, but now it is literally a dream come true. You read that right; there is a now a way to bypass the bootloader of your device which means that installing full custom ROMs is now possible. Read on to learn how to unlock it.
The Motorola Droid Razr is definitely among the most powerful and durable devices that you can find on the market. Its durability is no exaggeration because developers have had a hard time unlocking its locked bootloader. Many have criticized Motorola for this, as it prevented further customization. When the Droid Razr was released, developers had been as excited as [...]
Saying that the Android 4.0 update rollout has been slow in the US is an understatement. But the upgrade is finally picking up pace, with the HTC Rezound, Motorola Droid RAZR, and the Droid RAZR Maxx on Verizon Wireless finally receiving their piece of Ice Cream Sandwich soon, according to a leak picked up by Droid-Life.
A Reddit user, DroidTosser, leaked screenshots of the Verizon Internal Device Update System which shows us the OTA rollout dates for the update to Android 4.0. The timeline is the following:HTC Rezound – May 9 (Size: 297MB) (MOTA – Verizon’s 4G OTA solution) Motorola Droid Razr and Razr Maxx – May 21 (Size: 341 MB) [...]
