Telstra pushes out Android 4.1 update for Motorola Razr HD

Razr HD LTE-2

Since the arrival of Jelly Bean on the Motorola Droid Razr HD in the States earlier in the month, those who own the non-Droid variant of the phone in Australia have been waiting for the good news to travel south of the equator. It looks like you’ll be getting what you wish a few weeks before Christmas comes.

As reported by the folks at AusDroid, Telstra has begun rolling out the Android 4.1.2 software upgrade for the Motorola Razr HD. The new firmware is sent via an over-the-air update, so owners of the Razr HD may want to check the phone for the update notification.

Aside from the Telstra variant, the Jelly Bean update is reportedly available for those who own the unlocked model as well.

Did you make the jump to Jelly Bean yet on your Razr HD?  Share your impression in the comments below.

  • Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, is the quickest and simplest version of Android operating system yet.Jelly Bean improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0, and presents a new Search experience on Android.

      I wish it was as simple as that

    Useless, I just upgraded my RAZR HD and now none of my voice command functions work, vehicle mode and the new and improved voice search just crash when I open them. On top of that I’m having a hard time writing this comment because the keyboard keeps resizing itself over top of what I’m writing.

      I haven’t had that problem, for troubleshooting I would recommend going to the Motorola forums

    I just updated my razr HD with the new jellybean software and I am having issues with the volume control. I find when listening to music or videos through the pre installed gallery app there is hardly any volume till your nearly at the maximum level.

    Even with my other media player from the android store, I need to have the volume up half way to get the same effect compared to only having it up to 1/4 usually with Ice-cream sandwich 4.04.

    Even when I’m adjusting my ringtone volume, the confirmation beep you hear is inaccurate as no matter how high or low I set my ringtone or message tone, they play at maximum volume which is very annoying.

    On the positive side though, Jellybean definitely runs smoother and quicker.

    Would be good to hear from others who are having similar issues so we can maybe help each other out. Email me at [email protected]

    I am contacting Motorola and Telstra to see what can be done

      Hmm I haven’t had that problem, but I did have a few minor problems and the folks at Motorola took care of it within 24 hours

    Update last night. So far not too many dramas. Main thing I’m hoping is resolved is the unusual battery drain (applications weren’t sleeping correctly and I would go from 50% battery to 0% and the phone would get extremely hot).

    No major speed increase, and not noticing any “butter” effects maybe a slight improvement. Overall though it does seem less laggy, multi applications is working much better and so far no unusual battery drain, but today will be the big test really.

    Google Now works well, will be much better testing once I’m in the car but for now happy. See how we go.

      Mine did that but I rebooted it in safe mode and then shut it off and it has worked great every since then

      • Peter

        How do you reboot it in safe mode?

        • Jared Persinger

          hold the power button in and press and hold down power off for a few seconds and the option to reboot in safe mode comes up

  • Toby

    Does any one know when Telstra will push out Jelly Bean for Motorola Razr M?
