Motorola Atrix HD

Mark it, Dude. The AT&T this morning announced that the Motorola Atrix HD is getting an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean starting today. That means you get cool things like Google Now, that Project Butter smoothness, plus all the other bells and whistles AT&T and Motorola have added in. 

You can get the update now by going to Settings>About Phone>Software updates. And we suggest you do.

Should be good for the people that have that phone. The new Motorola is making people look towards them for future phones. I like the direction they are heading.

bertoid says:

Wait, what? Is this the same "new Motorola" that reneges on their promises to keep phones up to date?

It's the NEW new Motorola!! lol

JobiWan144 says:

You mean phones made by the old Motorola like the Photon 4G and Atrix 4G? Anything released before the Droid RAZR M/HD/MAXX HD is from the old Motorola and doesn't count anymore. Atrix HD owners got lucky; let's hope Photon Q 4G LTE owners get the same treatment.

bertoid says:

Ha. Doesn't count anymore? Don't count on it. I'm still under contract with my Photon, so it matters (to me, and I'm sure to a lot of other people) that they lied. The software on the Photon is hella buggy, and an upgrade might really help. Just because they're under new management does not give them a pass to screw over their old customers. So, AFAIGAF, "new" Motorola is the same as "old" Motorola, and they're both lousy.

Just tried it and it says my system is up to date lol

For those waiting for the update be patient. Moto is nothing but leisurely about their releasing of software. When they even did the test it was a day or more before some people saw it. Also refreshing your phone/cache clearing/etc is pointless.

I can confirm the update is good and the buttery smoothness is very noticeable. Soak tested it for the past week and aside from some odd app behaviors that will hopefully update for 4.1 it's all good.

Finally got my update downloading now :)

I tried.... says I'm up to date.

campy614 says:

Not too bad, Motorola/AT&T. I wish others would follow suit (I'm looking at you HTC/T-Mobile!!!).

My phone is "Up-To-Date" with 4.0.4, who needs 4.1 anyway? HA!

Mine is saying up to date as well...

Here's my experience...

I was impatient and installed the JB leak that is/was on XDA. I did that this morning, before I saw AC's article on the real deal Holyfield update.

I tried to check for updates on my leaked-on Atrix and it intalled an 11 MB update so now I'm running official JB.

What's your location?

rocket321 says:

My wife got the photon Q a couple days ago, hope that moves to jb soon too. I have to say it's a surprisingly great little phone. I still prefer my GS3, but moto is really making some good hardware these days.

Morjesta says:

My phone keeps saying is "Up-To-Date" with 4.0.4... *SIGH* any trick to force update?

cajunaggie87 says:

Got the update on my unrooted, carrier unlocked Bell Atrix HD on AT&T. 4.1.2

Jotokun says:

Enjoy your update, HD owners. Hope its worth never seeing 4.2+.
-OG Atrix Owner. Track records dont lie.

JobiWan144 says:

See my comment above. There's a big difference between the old Motorola and the new (Google-owned) Motorola.

Jotokun says:

That remains to be seen. Consider the fact that not only did they not release ICS, but NEW Motorola pushed out an OTA for Photon 4G owners that LOCKED THEIR BOOTLOADERS so they couldnt even install the incomplete CM9/10 builds even if they wanted to. This happened right around the time the ICS update was canceled, definitely not a decision of the old Moto.

JayRay86 says:

Maybe AT&T forgot about the HTC One X...

bawboh86 says:

As a One X owner myself: it certainly seems that way. :(

rocket321 says:

To everyone complaining that you don't have the update: OTA's usually roll out over a period of 2 weeks! If you waited this long you can wait a few more days. Then when the update pops up it will be like early Christmas at your house.

n3rfh3rd3r says:

I'm in St. Louis and as I mentioned before, I installed the JB leak and then received an OTA update after I checked for updates through Settings > About Phone. Device works just fine. I do notice there are some options now no longer available but nothing that requires me rethinking the choice I made to swap out devices.

I'm in Champaign, IL with an AT&T Atrix HD and I still haven't received the update!

Homosassa FL....No update yet....

hcamposjr7 says:

Its 4.1.1 I thought it was supposed to be 4.1.2? Or am I wrong??

jd9000 says:

Got it about 2 hours ago. It is awesome!

jabwtv says:

No updates for the Photon 4G and a locked bootloader equals Motofail.

Is it worldwide unlock? can use any gsm simcards?
