We've received a few reports that emails are going out to invite Motorola Feedback Network members to try a new release of Jelly Bean for the Droid RAZR and the Droid RAZR MAXX.

Thanks for joining the Motorola Feedback Network. We are inviting owners of the Droid RAZR or Droid RAZR Maxx on Verizon to participate in an early preview of a new Jelly Bean software release, and provide feedback.  If you are not currently using a Droid RAZR or Droid RAZR Maxx on Verizon, please excuse and ignore this email.

Plenty of folks using these phones are anxious to get Jelly Bean on their devices. Hopefully this soak test is successful, and we see a software update roll out shortly after. Keep your eyes on Android Central, and jump into the forums to discuss!

A new Jelly Bean release is being tested for the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX


Great news. Moto may be slow on the update front in general, but usually once they hit the soak test phase, a major rollout is right around the corner.

I downloaded the leaked JB update from the Christmas update that never happened for most people. It's been running great. I love Google Now and the expandable notifications really are my favorite feature. JELLY BEAN ROCKS

It's true. Motorola Forums sent out a surveymonkey to selected forum members.
That was earlier today, the 24th of Feb. It came with the stern warning not to discuss it with anyone...
So of course, all the folks that will get the soak test are talking about it all over the place.


Beware soak tests. The last one I participated in with my Moto Photon permanently locked my bootloader - they didn't tell me it would do that. Then the full release went out. Then they announced no more upgrades for the Photon. Then they offered $100 off a new Moto phone with or about-to-get Jellybean. My good manners prevent me from further expressing how I feel about Motorola but you can put the events/timeline together for yourself and see what they did there. Just FYI FWIW.

Hopefully this update rolls to those of us that got the leak (it better not be the same version as the leak).

Of course, it probably won't be too hard to download and flash through the stock recovery either...
