Motorola DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX Jelly Bean soak test begins
Members of the Motorola Feedback Network are finally getting the update to Jelly Bean for the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX. Despite Motorola exceeding the number of testing slots, the company has pushed out the update to everyone who signed up.
The update brings the RAZR and RAZR MAXX to Android 4.1.2, or software version 98.72.16.XT912. The update will include, as usual, Google Now, a new notification bar and Google’s Chrome browser.
Additionally, Motorola has gotten rid of My Gallery and My Music apps and is leaning towards Google’s offerings, which more than likely has to deal with Google’s acquisition of Motorola. A whole host of changes and tweaks can be found in the release notes (second Source link below) and thanks to our friends at Phandroid, the email being sent out to testers can be found below:
Hello,Thanks for signing up for the Droid RAZR / Droid RAZR Maxx Jellybean software test. The software should already be pushed to your phone, or it’s on its way.Apologies for sending this out so late — surveymonkey was down for maintenance last night and that was unexpected.As expected, the number of Motorola Feedback Network volunteers wildly exceeded our soak test capacity. But we don’t want to leave anyone out, so we found a way to include everyone.You are part of group that is getting the advanced software, and will be asked to fill out the evaluation survey. However, there won’t be a private area for feedback.Please look for the evaluation survey in email, most likely on Sunday.If you have any problems upgrading to the Jelly Bean software, please click here for help. [redacted] You can also use this link if you have a problem that makes your phone unusable, and we will do our best to help. This is NOT the link for feedback — again, that will come in a few days.Here is a link to the release notes. Please read them carefully and note some items removed from Jelly Bean. http://goto.motorola.com/saznfThanks so much for your participation! We really appreciate your time and insights.Matt

Considering that the soak test is now underway, it shouldn’t be very long before the update begins rolling out to DROID RAZR handsets on Verizon.
