Software update for the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX rolling out

Software update for the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX rolling out
Earlier this month there was a Motorola soak test of an Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX, but shortly after it was pulled. Then last week came a second soak test, but instead of it being ICS, it was still Gingerbread - though had a few software fixes.

We've now received word that the update is available for all DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX devices, which updates the software to 6.12.181, but still with Gingerbread 2.3.6. This update comes in at 17.4 MB and doesn't take long to install. Fixes include improved device stability, better battery life, Bluetooth call volume, better security, IPv6 implementation, improved text message delivery, better visual voice mail experience, fixed HotSpot with WPS security, more accurate 4G connectivity icon, and some changes to the MotoCast apps.

Hopefully the update to Ice Cream Sandwich isn't too far off!

For those of you who have rooted their DROID RAZR or DROID RAZR MAXX, you should first download and install OTA RootKeeper and have it create a backup. Then after the software update is installed, go back to OTA RootKeep and have it restore the root and then restart your phone. That way your apps that require root will continue to work.
