Earlier this week the official update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean started rolling out to the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD. Sadly it appears to be a rather small group who got it and many users are still patiently awaiting its arrival. Today we can confirm Verizon and Motorola are pushing the update to users on a mass scale, and we've received multiple reports of users receiving the OTA this morning.
Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for the DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD brings tons of neat new changes. They've replaced the Motorola Blur on-screen navigation buttons and notification pulldown icons all with stock Android -- which looks great -- and you'll be able to enjoy everything we love about Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Expandable notifications, Google Now search (which is awesome) project butter for a smooth and faster OS and much much more.
You'll get to enjoy the new Jelly Bean keyboard, and Motorola and Verizon have fixed some data connectivity issues, improved battery life and more. Then they've removed Verizon Video, the Color app, and a few other pieces of bloatware but replaced them with a suite of Amazon apps. If you don't want to wait for the update don't worry, because we have you covered.
The update to Jelly Bean is about 276MB in size and should only take a few minutes to download and install. For those that don't want to wait for the OTA to arrive we have it available below for download. Below is the official OTA update file for the DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD to Jelly Bean. You'll need to be completely stock, up to date with the latest OTA, and flash this in the stock recovery.
-Move to micro-SD card
-Boot into stock recovery (Power+Volume up)
-Enter recovery by holding Volume up/down
-Install from external storage
-Enjoy Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean on the RAZR HD
That's it folks. You'll now be enjoying the latest and official Android 4.1 JB for the DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD. As usual proceed at your own risk, and you might want to run OTA Rootkeeper should you want to keep root access. Now if I could only have vanilla Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean on the MAXX HD, then I'd truly be happy. Enjoy folks!
