Last week the Android 4.1.2 Jellybean update was released for Android devices and everyone rejoiced! Everyone loves firmware updates! New features, you say? Love them! My phone will run more smoothly? Great!
That is unless you have a Droid RAZR or RAZR MAXX. For those RAZR MAXX and Droid RAZR users out there who got the update and haven’t had issues, consider yourselves very lucky.
Many Verizon members suffered from a number of issues with the new Android Jellybean (4.1.2) update last month. The update issues struck the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX line of mobile devices and Verizon has been bombarded with complaints about dropped calls, non-functional apps, and widgets just not updating just to name a few. Note that these aren’t just minor issues that users will grumble about, but use an otherwise functional device, oh no these are major issues that—in most cases—you can’t simply work around.
While it has been a week now, there has been no update. So far Verizon hasn’t made any mention of the issues, but it’s expected there will be some kind of fix to them. Luckily Verizon has informed Motorola of everything and let’s just say an update should be out soon.
