Just had a long discussion with Motorola tech support....


For all who tried the update and failed....clear your cache.

The update will come....sometime...but you need to clear your cache.

They're having problems with the OTA...no details on what exactly...

But they told me to clear the cache and wait for the next try.

If you guys want the update, here's the link to an article about the whole event. In update 5, there is a link for the file and instructions to update. Original DROID RAZR Receiving Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Build 98.72.8 (Updated) – Droid Life

As usual what you do to your device is your own responsibility, and there is no official word if this build will be the official OTA or not.

I guess that means they're still pushing the OTA update and haven't pulled it yet.

I'll wait for them to get the bugs out of it....heck, I wasn't even expecting JB on this phone anyway...I had not even thought about an update since getting ICS.

I'm in no hurry...

Just download the zip file and apply it manually in recovery, that way you don't have to wait for them to send it out to you.

Here's one from XDA, it seems to link to the same file though. This user might have been the only one who got the ota and was aware enough to save the download before letting it install.

From what the reviews on XDA are saying, the update is rather minimal in terms of features. Only Google Now, Project Butter, and the new status bar.

Fine by me. I really like Google Now on my Asus Tablet (4.1.1) but something like this is really useful on something much more mobile like my phone. I'll be patient and wait for the OTA.

Before I go ahead, can anyone confirm bluetooth still works? I read a few comments saying it doesn't. If that's the case I'll have to wait for OTA.

Thanks.

There are several very handy Cache clearing apps that scan and clear in batches. There isn't one built in, other than doing it individually. I happen to use App Cache Cleaner

There is one built in too...

Turn the phone off....hold down the power and both volume buttons at the same time for a few seconds, a menu will appear....use the bottom volume button to scroll down to "recovery"....use the up volume button to select recovery....there will be a pause....when the android appears on the screen...push both volume buttons at the same time, another menu will appear...use the down volume button to scroll down to "clear cache partition"...use the power button to select it...it will format the cache...when its done....push the power button to restart the phone....and you're done.


Its not as complicated as it sounds...really is simple.

I did the update through the droid-life instructions. And every time I reboot the phone, I'm getting and error:

Process com.Motorola.vzw.vmm has stopped.

My about screen shows the update took. And everything seems to be working with no problems.

Anyone getting when you reboot.

So, as I was walking into church yesterday, I was making sure the sound was turned off when I saw the Jellybean update!!! I yelled in the parking lot "I got the update!". However, because I was going into church, I did nothing with it. As soon as I got home I went to download the update, but when I went to "about phone", etc., it said my phone was up to date too! What a tease! I don't think we were supposed to get that notification either! I have just the plain Razr Maxx.

Did the "clear the cache" thing on the phone, but still no update.

If I could turn back time, I would refuse this update. It is missing features, things are not complete. The computer cannot find the internal storage and all the folders appear empty which to me says "your stuff is history". They have renamed drives - most likely for testing and not for release. When you long press to turn the phone off, there are now two options - airplane and off. Then you have to confirm that you want the phone off. Pointless. When you go to set alarms, tap the alarm clock. No you don't get the three alarms. You get yet another screen with date and time and "alarm clock". So you tap that. NOW you see the alarms. Again...pointless. Folders in gallery are all doubled but nothing can find the internal storage. For the first time since I had the DRM, I got up this morning and it was on 3G. Signal is never 3G here. It finally went back to 4G but I really hope this did not mess with my radios. The feature of swiping to the right for music controls? Not there. This is a half baked mistake. And us poor idiots who got stuck with it are just that - stuck with it.

One good thing? You can see the notification bar icons again. Yeah. That makes up for losing photos and such on the internal storage. I really hope for Moto's sake that that stuff shows back up when this is finally ready for prime time. I don't know if renaming the SD card and internal storage was for testing but if it is permanent, your computer will not be able to find it again. We have two DRM's in the house. For the first time in all the years we have had smart phones in the house both of us got the updates at the exact same time. And neither one of us is happy with the mess that was made on a once stellar phone. If you didn't get it, consider yourself lucky.

Interesting... I got the update yesterday and it seems to work just fine!

I can browse and access files on my SD card without issue. Battery life seems to be significantly improved for me. I had the phone on with WiFi enabled for 10 hours and the battery on my Razr is down to 80%.

It is not the SD card that is the problem. Can you access the internal storage when hooked to the computer? It a lot of little glitches that prove it should not have been let out. I never had a problem with battery life and still do not. My biggest gripe is the stuff that was on the internal storage that seems to have gone POOF.

What is your internal storage listed as when you connect? It finds the SD card with no problem.
