Updated to Android 4.1: Motorola DROID RAZR and MAXX, and the European HTC One S
posted by Alan F. / Dec 24, 2012, 5:39 PM
Sense 4+, an enhanced UI with better camera performance, a new landing page and event/map view in the gallery, and improvements in power management (better battery life). The update is a whopping 612MB. Ouch. We'd hate to be the developer that gave birth to that! The update brings software version 3.16.401.8 to your HTC One S.
Also receiving an update, but to Android 4.1.2, are both the Motrorola DROID RAZR and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, These are not the HD models, and so far there is no documentation or a changelist from Big Red.
If you own any of these handsets and have received the update to Android 4.1, let us know by dropping a comment in the box below. And if you have an Android model that hasn't yet received the update to Android 4.1, perhaps a trip to the Santa at the mall will enable you to make a last minute request.

Got the update on my one s and tbh I'm not impressed. Sense animations seem to be operating at a LOWER frame rate than before :(

Just got the update on my HTC One S and all I can say is: AWESOME. Project Butter really creates a miracle, at least in my opinion. Way faster, new settings... I, personally, don't like those Blue accents on the theme, but who cares? It just got faster!!! PS: HTC could have done a smaller update - more than 600MB is a lot.

I recieved an OTA notification for my Verizon Droid RAZR but the update failed to download. I wish I had taken a screen shot. I remember it saying it was roughly 381 MB.

Well, Well, I just got a update on my Verizon Galaxy S3. They pushed it to me on Dec.22. It's now version 4.1.1. Is this a current update are are they just getting around to me now? Aside form a few different configs. Not much different. I have notice that all of a sudden my battery is lasting longer. I used to have to charge it every day. Now it seems to be every other day.

The update was pulled, but a search online with "razr jellybean update" should help others find the update - someone uploaded it before it was pulled, and its EASY to side load. I found a link in the xda forum - with easy to follow directions. Took about 30 min from start to finish, and now I have 4.1.2 Not sure if it will cause a problem IF verizon ever puts out a update....but ICS was killing me, and making me hate ANDROID. Jelly bean seems much smoother. Google now is just OK. Not really sure if I will use it much, but the rest looks alot cleaner, and smoother. Ill comment later about the battery.

Today I pay Verizon for 4G LTE. I paid Motorola, in combination with Google, for a Droid Razor Maxx wireless device. Installing the provided update package resulted in a reduction of service. Today I am able to connect to the network realizing 1G functionality. Shucks, who ever heard of not being capable to "roll-back" a software release or dot fix? Perhaps the programmers involved need to be remind that "production is not the best editor" Simply put, the back release for the currently defective phones can put into place, ready to be shipped OTA (over the air), within four hours. Think about it. Quite frankly, managing QA results, and not effort, may substantially improve delivery for your network and device products. In short, each current customer funds Motorola, Google, and Verizon. In a disaster recovery situation, what will be their recovery plan? Perhaps the door is open for teaching young individuals how to run a quality shop? How about a reminder for your employees addressing how they get paid (customers money). We will be watching you... BTW: I would be happy to calculate your bandwidth costs prior to doing the right thing.
