The Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD both have had Android 4.1 since late last year. Now, both models are being updated to Android 4.1.2 with build 9.16.6. The download is 96MB in size and adds additional security to the phones thanks to Google security patches. In addition, a data roaming fix is added to the pair as part of the update. Wi-Fi connectivity is improved and when you are selecting home screen icons, wallpaper options are displayed.

With the bad reputation Motorola's cameras have earned, owners of the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD will be happy to hear about the improvements to the camera that are part of the update, in areas including touch-to-focus, low-light performance and notifications. Improvements to video streaming pixilation have been made while media sync stability has been improved. The update will take 8 to 10 minutes to download and an additional 8 to 10 minutes to install.

With the update rolling out now OTA, perhaps your phone has received it. Check it out and let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.

Slower than iOS updates, but at least they are real updates.

Only because Jellybean isn't that big of a leap from ICS. If it was GB to ICS or a big leap in OS features and improvements then it would've taken the usual length of time Motorola's known for taking to update their phones. That's assuming its actually slated to get updated in the first place.

It's only an incremental update.

why should we take anything you say seriously? you would've had us all believe that Motorola would've taken a long time with the Jelly Bean update too even though it is more of an incremental update. all you present here is troll speculation.

i don't think it's important enough to fastboot to the OTA and lose my data. i'll wait for 4.2.

Wednesday night I got the big update to my Android 4.1.2 RAZR. Since the update I can no loner connect to my home wireless network. My laptop connects fine so I know it isn't the wireless network. The phone shows a strong signal but continues to say "connecting". It just never connects. Please help!

I'm impressed with the speed of the software updates since Google bought Motorola. The 9.16.6 update brings serious improvements to the camera. I haven't had a had a single wifi drop since the update. Well done.
