    Any word or ideas on when the next update will be out? Not sure how often they come out.

    Is there going to be another OTA you think? Maybe they will just concentrate on ICS, I don't know.

    I don't know, just wondering a time frame. You are probably right though.

    yeah surely they will have to do a pre-ICS update so that the ICS update isn't so massive or take too long for it to complete.

    With the amount of bugs the nexus first had. Updating in increments is the way to go. Altho it is amusing watching a dev team create ics firmware before the company does. I would say every 1-3 months would be suitable for an ota update since Motorolas gaol of 4.0 was early this ear.

    The Razr as of right now is pretty solid, especially after that last update that helped out the camera shutter!

    I'd deff expect to see one more update before ICS though...And as it stands now ICS isn't expected for a few months on the Razr anyway, so they have plenty of time to tinker!

    I do however wonder what ICS will look like on the Razr?

    I ran ics on my nexus before I returned it and on my rooted fascinate. It is a nice operating system...much different look than the current one.

    As cool as it was in the nexus the phone just did not work for me.

    The leaked 2.3.6 is even better, as far as adding useful features and stability go. The 3g/4g handoff the previous OTA was supposed to help with is really good now--folks are reporting handoff lags worst case taking a few seconds when it took tens of seconds on the OTA fix. Also, they apparently fixed the hotspot issue, the camera works even better (for example the panoramic stitching is pretty decent now), and added useful stuff like auto upload to your PC when you take a picture (either instantly if you have the unlimited data, or wifi only type options.)

    I agree 2.3.6 is by far the best yet..data still drops for me,but not nearly as often as before,and it picks it right back up shortly after dropping..The only negative I see (and it doesnt affect me) is those who used smart actions to kill there data...the new version removed that option,now it just stops background syncing as an option..I could never use it reliably,I mean it really helped battery life having data off with screen off,however best case took 30 seconds to restore data when i turned the screen on,and usually it took over a minute,or wouldnt get data at all....so i never could use it anyway...some people claimed to love that feature..its gone...apparently Moto seen it wasnt picking up data fast enough and pulled it ..

    With that leak out, what timeframe until the official ota, you think? I want to root but wanted to wait for this ota.

    Thanks

    That is interesting about the change to Smart Actions. Some ppl reported it going haywire after the OTA. And on mine and a few ppl's phones...after the update for some insane reason mobile data was disabled in the Settings area. Maybe it had to do with SA.

    I havent flashed this leak yet, may do it today.

    Not sure what you are referring to--I still can kill both background sync AND cellular data with the new smart actions... If anything, the action list got a little longer.

    Rumor I heard on XDA said that someone at VZW said mid February. Of course, who knows for sure until it's actually announced.

    The 2.3.6 update is pretty solid so far. Good to see they are rolling it out.

    I installed it via Droidrzr.com, not xda.

    Installing 6.12.173.xt912 - DroidRzr.com

    It is a good functionality upgrade, and many are reporting it fixes the prior OTA "fix" for 3g/4g. Check the other forum for more details.

    You got it OTA?? If so please post a screenshot of your About Phone page under Settings, or write it all down. Specifically System Version, Android Version, Baseband, kernel, and build...
