Motorola plans soak test of a new Jelly Bean build for Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX

Motorola plans soak test of a new Jelly Bean build for Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX
While this is not going to make users of the Motorola DROID BIONIC and Motorola DROID 4 happy, it looks like the manufacturer is recruiting users of the Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX for a soak test of a new Jelly Bean build for the two models, which already run on Android 4.1.2. We recently praised Motorola for their new found religion on updating some of their newer models, yet promised Android 4.1 updates for the Motorola DROID BIONIC and Motorola DROID 4 have yet to take place.

Meanwhile, emails sent out to some owners of the Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX are asking them if they would like their device to be included in a soak test for the new software. Only members of the Motorola Feedback Network are invited to take part in the test which is done so that a manageable number of phones are tested at one time. This way, if there is a problem with the new OS build and the phones are bricked, Motorola would be on the hook to replace a small number of phones instead of millions. In addition, by keeping the group testing the new software small, it is easier for Motorola to communicate with them to make any necessary changes.


As usual, those who agree in taking part in the soak test also must agree to keep information about it confidential.

Pick me Moto...LOL Be nice for an update it's been almost 8 months since I've had ICS. Like to see new features and tweaks of JB.

Apparently the one that got leaked 2 months ago works flawlessly, I don't understand why so much more "testing" is necessary.

probably Verizon. i'm usually fine with Moto's leaks though, in fact i'm still running the JB leak on my MAXX HD and the sad thing is we get these leaks from the cheesecake severs and they serve us just fine months before a final build is even released.

I've owned Moto phones since '98, but breaking promises is not acceptable. I was promised jellybean on my Atrix on two different occasions by Motorola and they broke that promise twice. If they actually support these phones as promised I might consider the X Phone but it will really have to be something special.
