Droid Razr, Razr Maxx Receives Jelly Bean Update

Motorola has released the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the original Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx.

The over-the-air update, which was originally scheduled for a 2013 launch, weighs in at over 300 MB. To check if you've received the update, navigate towards Settings > About Phone > System Update.

Android 4.1 delivers several notable additions such as a smarter keyboard, richer notifications, Quick Settings, Google Now, offline voice-to-text and enhanced widget support.

The update follows both the Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD receiving their Jelly Bean upgrade at the beginning of December, as well as the Atrix HD, with Motorola planning to release the update for more of its smartphones in 2013.

The Electrify M and both versions of the Xoom tablet will receive the update during Q1, 2013. Later during the year will see Motorola delivering Jelly Bean to the Droid 4, Droid Bionic, Photon Q and Electrify 2.

    I heard that if you installed the unofficial .215 update that you can't get it. I put myself back on the .211 update (supposedly it puts you back on the OTA schedule) and I don't see JB. I'm still on Android 4.0.4.

    It's nice to see Verizon give some respect to older devices. I hope it doesn't make them go bankrupt /sarcasm

    Hey Zak,

    Rather than regurgitating another article you read why don't you do some fact checking before submitting an article. that OTA update was pulled.
