Well that was fast. Earlier today some reports came flooding in that Motorola was finally sending out limited beta test builds of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the original and aging DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX. Now just a few short hours later Motorola themselves have confirmed the real update will arrive starting today to all RAZR owners. It’s about time!

We received the leaked update file and posted full details and instructions earlier today, but now it looks like the wait is already over. So for those who’d rather not mess with downloading files and flashing things in their recovery, just hang out for a minute because the official update is rolling out in phases as of this afternoon.

In a Motorola Blog post the manufacturer covered all of the details regarding what’s new with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and confirm that you should start receiving it this afternoon and over the weekend. Get ready to enjoy true voice search with Google Now, expandable and improved notifications, as well as a more simplified OS that closely resembles stock Android. We’re slowly seeing Google’s influence on Motorola’s updates – and we love it!

We weren’t expecting this for at least another week but we’ll take what we can get. So, as usual, if you’ve been patiently waiting to update your DROID RAZR or RAZR MAXX to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean you should probably start checking for updates. Head into settings > about phone > and hit check for updates a few times a day and hopefully it shows up soon for you guys. Enjoy!
