Motorola Android software update news

Motorola have posted an update on the status of their Android upgrade schedule. Ice Cream Sandwich is the order of the day for the majority of their devices, with only two exceptions.

The Motorola RAZR HD Jelly Bean update was only recently rolled out. The RAZR M is listed as moving to Jelly Bean early in 2013. These both closely tie in with the Telstra update schedule we posted a few days ago.

The rest of their devices look set to remain on Ice Cream Sandwich.

    I use my Razr HD on Optus, not Telstra. Will I still get the update?

    • Yes. I’ve literally just spoken to Motorola, and all RAZR HD’s will get the update (in batches) OTA.

    How I am not surprised that Motorola aus would stopped updates for the Xoom. However, I GED my Xoom with USA firmware and there are pros and coins having jelly bean on the Xoom 1

    I hope they do in fact update the OG RAZR to 4.1, i have a unbranded RAZR MAXX (retail asia model) and its the first time in years I don’t have to worry about battery life on a phone! but not really counting on it with the previous history of failed support with the Atrix and XOOM 3g.

    There is still plenty of support on XDA for the XOOM with CM10 and EOS but there are bugs and i would prefer a official build. Its such a shame because Motorola do actually make some of the best hardware out there let down by software support.

    I wonder how long it will take them to put 4.2 on the RAZR HD i suspect the 4.1 update was in the works months before the phone was actually out and that is reason it was so quick to be passed to Telstra to test, time will tell how long 4.2 takes.

    What the author missed is that the original Razr is scheduled to reach 4.1 JB…in Asia Pacific. Now the question is… will Optus carry out the update or just leave us in the dark ages… yes I know that the phone is “useable”.
    Oh well, here is hoping.
