Verizon's site shows how to update your Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX

Both the Motorola and Verizon websites tonight have information about the Android 4.0.4 update for the Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. No specific date is listed, but the Verizon site lists some information about the download starting with the fact that is 354MB in size. Big Red says that depending on how crowded the network is, the download can take 20 minutes to 70 minutes to download and another 10 to 20 minutes to install. During installation, you won't be able to make or receive phone calls including emergency calls.

Motorola's web site has a number of videos showing features of the new OS build. Unfortunately,we could not get any of them to run which means they could be placeholders waiting for the update to become official. In fact, between both websites, there is plenty of words about the software, but no information on when to expect it to come. Meanwhile, things are moving into place and we could see the pair of handsets get their Ice Cream Sandwich dessert shortly. After all, Verizon sent out emails last week to owners of the phones telling them to install a third party IM app because the Verizon Mobile IM app will disappear when Android 4.0.4 is installed. The email said that the Android 4.0.4 update was coming soon and Motorola and Verizon's websites certainly seem to confirm this.

Even though I have a DROID 4 and i'm pretty jealous I'm still extremely excited to hear about this. Hopefully I will see ICS running on my DROID 4 in a few weeks. Btw the videos will play, idk why it's not working for you guys.

the same can also be said about devices that don't even have their ICS serving in sight yet so what's your point?

One additional data point - not all owners of a RAZR on VZW got an e-mail about installing a third party IM app.... I didn't get such an e-mail from VZW. Maybe they are trying to tell me that I should be getting a Sammy GS III (Dunno)?

You might have not registered it or ever used the VZW mIM

i was right the .211 build is the OTA so now i should be back on the upgrade path. the only thing wrong with this build that i've noticed on my Razr is that the notification light has a mind of it's own flashing every once in a while even though i don't have any notifications.

I have the .211 leak - works even better than AXIOM as data is more consistent.

Hey VZW!! No one cares about your IM app...lol

Verizon sent a TEXT message, not an email about the IM app, and yes ICS is soon, I have it on good authority

Umm...i watched all the videos last night on Motorola website.

Verizon tweeted the other day that the txt about the IM was spam and not sent out by them.http://www.phonesreview.co.uk/2012/06/18/droid-razr-ics-disappointment-as-verizon-update-texts-spam/
