The Motorola Droid RAZR M, one of the company’s latest smartphones, first started to receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean a few days ago. Now, the device’s Jelly Bean update is available to all users to manually install through the device’s settings.
The announcement comes courtesy of Motorola itself who says that those who have not received the Droid RAZR M Jelly Bean update as of yet can now find the update through the device’s settings.
Specifically, users will want to go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates. That should prompt a download for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and after a few minutes of installation, the update will be up and running in no time.
The Droid RAZR M is the first Motorola device to get updated with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and it will likely be followed by the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD which will both be getting Jelly Bean at some point this year.
Motorola’s trio of smartphones are its latest and will be the flagship devices it has on shelves for the holiday season. And while all three launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Motorola has stuck with its promise of updating them with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean before the end of 2012. We still don’t know when the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR HD MAXX will get Jelly Bean but it could be within the next couple of weeks.
The Droid RAZR M Jelly Bean update comes just a little over six weeks after the device launched, an impressive outcome for a company that was once extremely slow to getting its devices updated with the latest software.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is a massive upgrade over Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and brings an extremely fast user interface, new camera functionality, an improved browser, Google Now, expanded Notifications and more.
Best of all, it’s free which means that Droid RAZR M users should be downloading it right this second.
