Gotta Be Mobile has been informed that the bug fix updates for the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX, which aim to take care of the many bugs that currently plague the devices, might not roll out until September.
Originally, we had been told that Verizon was aiming for the middle of August but it appears that that deadline will unfortunately come and go without any sort of fix.
It’s not because of a lack of trying though. Instead, we’re being told that the progress has been slow because of the shear amount of bugs that came along with Ice Cream Sandwich.
Apparently, both Motorola and Verizon were surprised by the amount of bugs that came with the update and that has led to the update taking longer than expected.
Remember, Motorola and Verizon decided to roll out the update on the last possible day in the promised release window and it would appear that the updates were still riddled with issues.
We’ve heard, specifically, that the first soak test for the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR ICS bug fix updates will out in the very beginning of September.
Again, this is a target and isn’t set in stone.
Owners should take consolation in the fact that these updates should squash a good majority of the bugs that have been terrorizing these devices since the end of June.
We’ve heard from multiple Droid RAZR MAXX owners who have not had access to email on this phone ever since the upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Other owners have been complaining their screen locks up, that apps on the home page keep disappearing, and that using My Gallery, one of the photo features on the phones, has become such a disaster that it has become unusable.
To be sure, it’s a mess and one that unfortunately might not get fixed until September, barring a miracle.
