GSM Motoorola RAZR ICS leak

Calm down, Verizon Droid RAZR owners, this one's not for you, unfortunately. Owners of the international (GSM/HSPA) Motorola RAZR XT910, however, are in luck, as an early build of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich appears to have leaked out for Moto's flagship international phone.

The leaked build, which has surfaced over on fansite, shows firmware built just a week ago on Jan. 17, which exhibits characteristics of both Blur and stock ICS. For example, Motorola's icons are used for the dialer and people app, but other apps, like the launcher, are untouched by the manufacturer's UI layer. Naturally, since this is pre-release firmware, there's no guarantee things will stay this way when ICS eventually rolls out officially, and we'd expect the finished article to look a little more like Blur and less like stock Android.

Whatever Ice Cream Sandwich on the RAZR ends up looking like, this early leak is a tantalizing chance for RAZR owners to get an early look at the latest version of Android on their handsets. And jealous Droid RAZR owners, we're sure it won't be long before this leaked ROM is hacked apart and ported across to the Verizon version. If you're feeling adventurous, you can find download links and installation instructions over at the source link.

Ice Cream Sandwich for international Motorola RAZR leaks


ADW EX Launcher (ICS theme),ICS clock widget, ICSSpark Sense Skin, CleanRom 3.0, ICS live wallpapers, ROOT, and some custom tweaks.

Now everyone asks me when did my Evo 3D get a fully functional ICS rom.

Benefits of rooting!

Wish this site would let me post pics.

Looks good, much better than the TouchWiz and Sense ICS builds we've seen. You can actually tell that this is built on ICS, the other two just look like Gingerbread. Now we will see if Motorola can get it out in a timely manner, that will be the tricky part.
