Those looking for a time table for the upcoming Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich bug fix update should circle August in pencil on the calendar as that appears to be a possible month for the software’s release.
A source has told us that the bug fix update, which we reported was in the works, might be rolling out sometime during the month of August.
We weren’t given a specific date but we were told that the Droid RAZR ICS bug fix update would, at the earliest, arrive in the middle of August.
Greater odds were given to the end of August for a roll out.
In any event, Verizon is apparently hard at work trying to fix what the Ice Cream Sandwich update broke and we should have a more firm timeline to share in the days ahead.
In the meantime, owners can try clearing the cache on the Droid RAZR or Droid RAZR MAXX in order to try and solve some of the issues. We’ve heard from several people who have seen noticeable improvement after performing the fix.
Clearing the cache likely won’t solve all of the problems that Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners have been having but it should work to help stabilize the device.
As we’ve said, the fact that the Motorola Droid RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich updates are plagued with bugs isn’t surprising. It’s clear that both Motorola and Verizon came down to the wire trying to meet Motorola’s imposed Q2 deadline for the update.
The carrier originally announced a June 22nd roll out date for the updates but it became clear soon after that it was a soak test rather than a full on roll out.
Most Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners saw the update roll out on the last day of June and since then, we have heard from numerous owners who have been dealing with issues caused by the update. And that means they’ve been hoping for an update to arrive sooner rather than later.
Better temper those expectations though, it looks like it’s going to be August at the earliest.
