Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX Get Another Software Update; Still No ICS In Sight!

Another day, and Motorola continues to prove that it has gone insane. Last week, the company started rolling out a new software update for the Bionic which brought some bug fixes and performance improvements to the phone, instead of rolling out the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the device.

Today, the company has started rolling out a new update for the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX. No, the software updates still don’t bring Ice Cream Sandwich to the handset, nearly 4.5 months after ICS code went AOSP!

Below is the full change-log of the software update v6.12.181 for the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX -:

  • Improved Device Stability.
  • Optimized device performance to extend battery life.
  • Added easy access to preloaded VZW bookmarks through quick key access.
  • Corrected loud call end connect tones over Bluetooth.
  • Enhanced device security by preventing unauthorized access of telephony database by third parties.
  • Device is now updated with IPv6
  • 4G coverage indication accurately displays data connectivity.
  • Improved Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity when utilizing WPS security.
  • Improved text message delivery.
  • Improved visual voice mail performance with data disabled and visual voicemail notification delivery
  • Enhanced security in Verizon apps
  • Included a new MotoCast widget to enable easier access and discoverability of MotoCast services.
  • Modified the storage settings screen to make it easier to understand total storage versus available storage.
  • Implemented a number of MotoCast performance improvements.
The OTA update is already being rolled out in batches by Verizon, and weighs around 17MB in size. Someone care to please wake up Motorola, and tell them to roll out the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the RAZR and RAZR MAXX.
