Droid RAZR ICS update, some receive rollout but others still wait :UPDATED
We’ve been writing about the Android 4.0 ICS update for the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX on Verizon for some time, after the release to the public has taken a while coming. Recently we heard officially that the rollout was beginning but it seems that while others have now reported receiving the update there are still plenty of other people waiting.
This has been quite a saga but in a nutshell many people feel they’ve been kept far too long waiting for the ICS update for these two prominent handsets. After some amount of consternation and dates that came and went we finally told here that Motorola had now officially stated the update would begin rolling out to users on June 22. We also told how the arrival of the ICS update might occur over a few days but that it was worth checking your phone for updates every now and then. However that was now exactly a week ago and we know that some are still waiting.
Following this a few days ago we gave readers some video news of the ICS update shown on a Droid RAZR MAXX and noted that the update didn’t seem to have hit the public in a widespread way just yet. We also pointed out though that the video mentioned a date of June 27 and so hoped that those who hadn’t already received the update might have done so by then. We had plenty of comments to this article though, from Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX users all over the US saying they still had not received ICS and only a couple of users reporting that they had so far received it.
Now a new report on Droid-Life tells how with the soak test completed, some of their readers report that they have now received the Android 4.0 ICS update, either yesterday or on the previous evening. However it seems that plenty of others still haven’t got that ICS flavor as there are literally hundreds of comments on their article saying they are still waiting.
We’d like to hear from our readers about this situation. Are you one of the fortunate ones to already have received the update? Maybe you’re one of the many who are still waiting in frustration for the ICS update? Let us know by sending your comments and to get some idea of how widespread the issue is it would be helpful if you could also mention your location.
UPDATE: Droid-Life now reports that the ICS update for the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX is now live and should be available for everybody. If you haven’t already got it then head to Settings>About>System Update. Hopefully all of you who were still waiting according to the comments below now have access to the update. Enjoy!
