ICS Finally On Verizon Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx

Android version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update delays have plagued almost every major carrier. Of all the users, only about 10 percent of them actually yet have the Ice Cream Sandwich version of the OS. Motorola Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx users have been no exception and have waited patiently, containing their excitement, for more than a month now. Their patience was rewarded and both Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx Ice Cream Sandwich updates are now ready.

Scott Charlston, a PR representative from Verizon announced about the availability of the ICS update in a tweet yesterday. Motorola first announced more than a month ago that both the Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx users would be given the Ice Cream Sandwich treatment before their second quarter comes to a close. Motorola has made good their promise in just the nick of time, with the third quarter almost already here.

Motorola has made the Android 4.1 update through manual update. Handset users will not receive any kind of prompt either from Motorola or the carrier. Instead, to update the OS on your phone, you will have to do it yourself. To update, you will have to access the “about” button from the settings menu of your phone. Next step, the “system settings”. Your phone will automatically start the upgrade process and after a short wait, voila. Your Motorola Droid Razr or Droid Razr Maxx will proudly show it’s Ice Cream Sandwich face to you and smile. The tweet does mention that the update will be available from 30 June onwards. In case, you do not find the update available when you try to do the manual update, do not worry, the update will be available in a day or two.

The Android 4.1 ICS update will bring a whole lot of major updates to your moto smartphones. Including a cool looking and useful lock screen, Face Unlock will really excite you. The update as expected, will also bring several bug fixes, address stability issues, improved security features and improved performance.
