Default Jelly Bean soak test going out soon

According to a post over on Droidrzr.com at least in the RAZR HD section. Anyone here sign up to be a soak tester?

What's a soak test?

Is that the same as dropping it in a toilet?

Actually...you are not suppose to delve details during the actual soak test. You can talk about it leading up to it. I am on the list for the test.

You sign one of these when you sign up to be one of Moto's testers for new software

I know what a non-disclosure agreement is. My point is that you can discuss the soak test in that it is a soak test not the specifics of it. When we receive the emails of it starting which directs us to unroot, unfreeze apps, etc, then it comes into effect of not disclosing any information to the public. Feedback at that point is directly with Motorola which becomes property of Motorola.

That's hilarious!

The razr soak test (first gen razr) happened earlier this year, and IIRC it came out like 2 weeks later OTA.

What say you now?

Really?

Here's a link to the Motorola software update page.

https://forums.motorola.com/pages/00add97d6c

The razr HD and Maxx HD are listed to get JB before 2013. I would read that as getting JB in December 2012. However, if it snuck into Jan. 2013 I wouldn't be overly surprised. But December of 2013? Nahhh!

Remember the Razr M that was released just weeks before the Razr HD and Maxx HD got JB this month.

Guess the tests may have gone well. Support docs for 4.1 were just posted on Verizon's website. Sounds like JB should be getting pushed VERY soon.

Of course, with all the improvements of 4.1 there are bound to be some headaches as well. Even with all the testing Vz does there always seem to be at least minor issues with new software.

That's because users do random crap that testers cant account for. Verizon doesn't develop the software, only approves for release and carries the data to the phone.

I realize they don't develop the software, but they do test the heck out of it before it's allowed to be released. And their testing is notoriously long compared to other providers so its a little frustrating to still have those minor issues.

I'm not really complaining, just reminding everyone of that point before we start seeing threads like "Jelly Bean ruined my phone" or "how can I go back to ICS."

ah. I didn't read it that way- more like a "vzw does all this testing and there's STILL problems" gripe.

I understand what you meant now!
