Motorola DROID RAZR, DROID MAXX, DROID 4: Update Rolling Out via OTA

Motorola DROID RAZR, DROID MAXX, DROID 4: Update Rolling Out via OTA Verizon Motorola DROID RAZR 293x300There’s a new update that just been pushed out for original DROID RAZR, DROID MAXX and DROID 4 users, although sadly it isn’t the Android 4.4 update (KitKat) you’ve been waiting for. In fact, this one is simply a maintenance update, which will fix a few bugs and not a lot else. For now, you’re stuck on Android 4.1.

We’ve got the details thanks to Motorola’s support website, and the update which is catchily named 98.72.165.XT912.Verizon.en.US has only two lines in its changelog. The update fixes a bug that could appear when roaming on Telus’ network in Canada specifically, and another that causes a data roaming warning to appear when it’s not needed. Useful fixes, but mostly unexciting.

The OTA is rolling out now to all users, so you can check for it manually using the About Phone menu, should you be that worried about grabbing these fixes. No file size is mentioned, but if it’s anything over 20MB we’d be surprised.

If you’ve spotted anything else, let us know.

    So this ‘upgrade’ is all about fixing some roaming bugs having to do with Canada and Alaska eh? That’s what we’re being told. What I’m reading on many Droid sites is, it’s more about cutting off any tethering apps you may have that do not collect money for Verizon. I haven’t updated my phone yet so I don’t know, but this is what I’ve read on other ‘blog’ sites.

    Received the OTA update on my Droid 4 last week, and it bricked data access. I was successfully using this in Italy and elsewhere in Europe with a TIM (Italian Telecom) SIM, with data of course, and since the update it was not able to transfer a single byte. Phone can still make/receive calls. It was not rooted, and had no tethering apps installed.
