    ICS 4.0.4 update (6.16.211) for the DROID RAZR & MAXX

    Please use this thread to discuss the Android ICS 4.0.4 update for the Razr & Maxx (software version 6.16.211).
    It says its 354MB in size. Does anyone know if it resets the phone back to all defaults, or does it slip-stream that keeps all you settings and info intact?

    Heard back, and this OTA update will not wipe the phone. So all your apps and settings should still be intact after it's installed. I checked a Razr Maxx here, and the update hasn't hit yet. With it's large size, I'm wondering if it will be a staged roll-out to a group of phones each day, so it won't overload the servers. Regardless,if you have access to a fast WiFi connection, that's probably the best and quickest way to download it.

    ".....monitor your data usage to prevent costly overages so you can spend money on what really matters...."
    Is this Motorola's way of taking a jab at Verizon and their data plans?

    Looks like that is what Motorola is saying:
    http://www.motorola.com/blog/2012/06...r-maxx-owners/

    " A select number of DROID RAZR by Motorola and DROID RAZR MAXX by Motorola owners will start receiving the upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich this week as part of our standard upgrade process; broader deployments will come over the coming days."

    Oh, wow. This kind of makes the Maxx/Samsung III a harder decision for me...

    Got a "System Announcement Message" on the Maxx tonight saying the phone would be updated within a week to ICS and it listed some of the new features. Has anyone got the OTA update yet?

    Got the same text. I was also invited last week for a soak, but after doing the online survey I never heard anything else about it.

    The OTA downloaded, but after a couple minutes of the install, it showed the triangle with the acclimation mark and rebooted. Then said update failed. I'm currently running stock .181 and am rooted. Also have Clockwork and Razr Bootstrap installed. Could it not install the update because of those?

    Yes, you must be absolutely stock. The update asserts logwrapper and other components modified by Bootstrap so it must be completely removed for the update to succeed. You can use Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper but it is not necessary since djrbliss' new exploit roots the ICS builds directly.
