Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich Updates Might Miss Q2

We have been told that the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich updates, which have slowly been trickling out to users, may not hit a majority of owners until the weekend.

A source has informed us that while the Ice Cream Sandwich roll outs for the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX have started hitting users devices in batches today, some customers might not see the updates arrive until this weekend.

Apparently, there is a chance that the updates could arrive on Sunday.

However, according to one Verizon PR rep, it will be available for all users starting tomorrow. At the moment though, he seems to be the lone Verizon representative reporting this and as we know, Verizon is a beast with many heads and it’s tough to believe something until it’s official.

And again, our source was adamant about Sunday being a real possibility due to an unforeseen delay.


Until the update does become available, there’s the possibility that some users might not get the update until after that promised Q2 release date. Q2 of course refers to the months of April, May, and June. The end of June marks the end of Q2.

Our source says some Droid RAZR owners might not see ICS until Sunday.

This comes from the same source that told us that the updates would arrive for users by the end of today.  However, it now appears that the software has suffered a setback for unknown reasons.

We assume that Verizon is taking its time to deliver the updates to the masses because it wants to make sure the experience is as flawless as possible. And we assume that’s why the updates have been slowly rolling out since June 22nd.

It has become clear that Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners are in the midst of a soak test and not an actual roll out. A majority of users have yet to the see the software update arrive and there appear to be only a few people that have actually seen the update roll out.


Hopefully, Verizon is able to start pushing the updates to the masses starting later tonight but at this point, we can’t say for sure.

We’ll let you know when we hear something further.
