Droid RAZR & RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich Bug Fix Update Coming in Mid-August?

We had heard that the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich bug fix update would arrive at some point in August and now we have some more information about the possible timing of the update.

Yesterday we informed you that the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX bug fix update, an update that is slated to kill off the bugs that ICS brought along with it, is still on track for August. We had originally told you that Verizon was shooting for an August release.

Well, now we have a bit of a time tablet to share as a source has told us that a soak test for the update is slated to roll out in 2-3 weeks, around the same time that the Motorola Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update is rumored to be hitting testers.

The Droid RAZR bug fix update could arrive in mid-August.


That apparently is the target window that the carrier has for the update and that could mean, should the soak test go well, that the update might arrive for Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners in the middle of August.

Keep in mind, this is Android software and Verizon paired together, and it’s very possible that we could see this time table change.

This bug fix update has been in the works since shortly after Verizon rolled out the Ice Cream Sandwich update to Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners at the end of June.

Those updates brought a host of issues to device owners, likely because Motorola and Verizon were under the gun to get the update out to hit the Q2 deadline that Motorola had imposed.

As we’ve told you, there is a remedy that device owners can try in an attempt to fix the issues that ICS brought along with it.

The fix has been a mixed bag of results with some reporting a better experience and others not seeing any improvement after performing the fix.

So, for now, circle mid-August in pencil on the calendar and we’ll keep you in the loop as far as an update is concerned, just like we promised we would.
