DROID RAZR HD AND MAXX HD users have been anxiously awaiting the firmware upgrade to Jelly Bean. News that surfaced today has revealed that Jelly Bean has been approved for the listed devices and will begin rolling out in phases (as is custom) next week. While the update has taken quite some time, users should be happy to finally be able to get their hands on the buttery speeds that comes with Project Butter in the new firmware update. This news comes straight from the mouth of Verizon:
Friday, Nov. 30: DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola are the next smartphones to be upgraded to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. The software upgrade will be pushed out to customers in phases starting next week. Customers can visit the support page for more information about the Jelly Bean upgrade.
In the firmware update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean users will get to experience new features like Google Now and improvements to notifications. Verizon also claims that they have made improvements to both voice and data connectivity (which I’m sure users will appreciate) as well as a few modifications to the stock calendar. Verizon has also tweaked the Back Up Assistant, which I’m sure almost no one cares about. The update is a whopping 276MB. Make sure you’re watching for when the update starts getting pushed out. As mentioned above, Verizon has said that it should start pushing out within the next week! Definitely not too long of a wait, which is a good thing considering this is Verizon we’re talking about.
