Earlier this month, Verizon served up the Jelly Bean update for its new line Motorola Droid phones including Droid RAZR HD, and Droid RAZR MAXX HD. Now, it’s time for another set of Droid phones to taste some Jellybeans. It looks like, the Big Red network is now rolling out the much awaited Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update as the Christmas present for Motorola Droid RAZR, as well as the Droid RAZR MAXX handsets. The update bumps the software version up to 98.72.8. Verizon hasn’t posted the official support documentation for Jelly Bean update on its website, but most of the users are reporting that they are indeed getting the update.
In addition to the new Android OS version – Jelly Bean, the update also brings Google Now, Project Butter, enhanced notification, speed improvements, improved keyboard, and resizable widgets, YO may also get some special upgraded for the preinstalled Verizon-specific applications.
The update should be hitting the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX handsets now, so head into Settings > About phone > Software updates to see if it’s available on your device. Some users are also reporting that they are failing to install the OTA update. Don’t worry, you can download the full update from the below link (courtesy of XDA forums) and follow the instructions to install it on your device.
# Grab the update file from the above file and move it to SD card on your handset

# That’s it, wait for some time and enjoy Jelly bean goodies.
