Motorola has begun the Jelly Bean roll-out for the RAZR i. Though, that being said, at this point in time it looks like Jelly Bean has only arrived for those in France. Of course, this should give some excitement for those in other locations where the RAZR i is available, such as the UK.
According to details coming from the xda-developers forums, this update measures in at roughly 300MB in size and has arrived as Android 4.1.2. Given the size of the update, we suspect it will be best served over a Wi-Fi connection. RAZR i users in France should be on the lookout for an update notification. Well, that or begin taking the proactive approach and checking manually by navigating to Menu -> Settings -> About phone.
The update will bring the expected goodies including the smoothness of Project Butter and Google Now. Some reports coming from the thread on xda are talking about improved performance. One user has said that it is “very fast compared to ICS.” Also, for those outside France and unwilling to wait, it appears as if a leaked ROM is available. Needless to say, we suggest waiting for the update notification to arrive and going the official route.
Bottom line here, while it looks like Motorola has managed to get another handset upgraded to Jelly Bean, given the release arrived first for those in France — we suspect those in the UK are feeling a bit jealous at the moment given they actually had the RAZR i available first.
