New RAZR ICS leak matches file size from Verizon documents

New RAZR ICS leak matches file size from Verizon documents
The folks over at DROIDRZR have released a new build of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Motorola DROID RAZR. The latest leak checks in at roughly 343 MB, which is only 2 MB over of the file size listed in yesterday’s Verizon documentation.

This leak brings the RAZR up to build 6.14.84 and has a build date of April 26, 2012. This particular leak only works if you are running build 6.12.181, which is the incremental Gingerbread update that was released the other day. That is another sign that this may be the real deal that could see an official release relatively soon. As we reported yesterday, Verizon’s ETA is allegedly May 23rd for the RAZR and RAZR MAXX.

DROIDRZR notes that changes from the previous build include:

  • SPEED. It's way smoother and faster
  • New kernel
  • New CDMA radio (LTE remains the same)
  • When receiving a call, there's a new button in addition to your answer/ignore so that you can respond with a text.

We installed an ICS leak on a RAZR the other day. Our version, Build 6.14.75 with a build date of March 25, 2012, while it was a different kernel, also sported the text message button on incoming calls. We’ve included a few photos of our install below in case you’re wondering what this feature looks like.

If you're ready to dive in and just can't wait for the official update, head on over to DROIDRZR in the source link. As always, proceed at your own risk.

I can't wait for this! Glad to see Moto finally changed the Theme and got rid of the Blue Notification bar that doesn't match anything. Especially when you're on a RAZR MAXX and everything else is black but your Notification bar.

I love ICS for the way it organizes everything. Now, I have nice looking folders, that can be customized on looks and name, and I do not need to have 5 screens worth of stuff to find everything as for the most part everything I need/use is one screen: http://db.tt/RYR2d6jr

*UPDATE 2* i can now confirm that Flash Player 11 is working in this build and let me tell you what this thing is re-downloading my apps like it's nobody's business, i can hardly keep up with them. i've never seen anything restore apps this fast. the only things now that's going to get me back on Nova Launcher is getting to have a 4x5 grid vs. a 4x4 grid on the Stock Launcher and i like how much more organized the App Drawer is in Nova Launcher. Stock isn't bad at that but Nova is still better.

Can you take screenshots?

28. KingKurogiii

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

yes, screenshots are taken by a simultaneous push of the power & volume down keys. if there is anything you guys would like to see about this ask me and add me on G+ and i'll do my best to get a picture up for you guys.

easier on my ROM - just hold down power key and option appears....

39. KingKurogiii

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

so you hold down your power key, wait for the selection menu to show up and then you have to select the option to take a screenshot? and that's easier than pressing two buttons simultaneously to take a screenshot? lol okay. whatever floats your boat. xD

Isn't that the same way you simulate a battery removal. I guess taking a screenshot is just a shorter period of time.

i've only had to do a reset like that once when i flashed 4.0.3 on my dad's MAXX and it had those settling bugs which caused a freeze-up but i can't remember if it was with the power + volume down or if it was with the power + both volume buttons but if it's actually the former i guess it's like what you said and the time intervals are what decides the command. o:

This leak is a lot faster/smoother than the previous ICS leak for the Razr. That being said the problem right now is there is no way to get back on the upgrade track currently after flashing this. The fastboot files available cannot take you back at this point. (Warning for all)

xD you can just use Mike G's Razr Utility to flash back to .173 then you can update to .181 no problem.

*UPDATE* they've also changed the "Favorites" widget. it's improved i think, the App Launcher Shortcut now has an "Apps" label beneath it and i THINK the keyboard has been tweaked.

well i've got it running now and right off the bat i notice it is a bit smoother and a few of the icons have changed. the messaging and voicemail for instance.

I just hope VZW releases the ICS upgrade for the RAZR before May 23rd. All of these leaks are making me wish the code was a production release. It is going to be hard to patiently wait until the 23rd.

What about the freakin Droid Bionic!!!! Man Motorola and Verizon are completely forgetting that phone.

My DROID 4 better get this soon since they are pretty much the same phone. The only difference is the screen and keyboard.

Ashamed to admit that I wish I would have gotten the RAZR Maxx instead of the Galaxy Nexus, or at least kept the original RAZR.

xD i knew it was going to be like this. that's why i didn't fall for the Nexus.

Im hoping to get into the soak test for the Photon. That's what lead up to these ICS leaks for the Razor. Glad to see Motorola sticking to there 2012 goal for updates there devices on time .

Wait so why does it take over a month to get it out to us? I would root and whatnot to get it, but I want to get this update, then root/rom/whatever since there probably won't be any other updates comming out soon after.

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

so you're gonna stay ICS-less in the meantime because you don't want to go through the trouble? well let me tell you it's worth it and i don't normally flash any ROMs.

Can you make a guide for me. I checked youtube and they are all in foriegn languages or with people with very odd accents, that makes them not-so-trustworty.

I did it for my sister-in-law's RAZR last week and it took me a total of two hours (90% of which was downloading files). I literally Googled "Droid RAZR ICS leak"
