Software version 6.12.173.XT912.Verizon.en.US is being pushed to owners of the Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX in the form of an OTA firmware update. The update can also be had by going to Settings>About Phone>System Updates. And the good news is that not only will it bring Android 2.3.6 to the two models, it also brings a ton of new features.

The entire change list is as follows:

APPLICATIONS
  • Mobile Hotspot will now successfully allow other devices to connect to all
  • Improvements in the Mobile Hotspot security.
  • VZ Navigator has been updated with the latest 3D map improvements.
  • Visual Voice Mail messages can be marked as read.
  • Visual Voice Mail message playback resumes when audio is switched to speaker.
  • Visual Voice Mail will successfully subscribe or unsubscribe while connected with Wifi.
  • Successfully press back key after playback in Visual Voice Mail without error.
