Ice Cream Sandwich Build 6.14.75 Leaks for the DROID RAZR

After yesterday’s news that Ice Cream Sandwich would be released next week for the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX, a soak test invite for Motorola Feedback Network members was quickly sent out which seemingly confirmed that the update was upon us. This morning, a leaked Android 4.0.3 (version 6.14.75) build briefly became available from the crew over at DroidRzr.com, however, it was then pulled as the normal methods for flashing were not working as expected.

From what we know though, thanks to a couple of successful flashes, a new webtop software is included, obviously a new ICS UI, new radios, and version 4.0.3 of Android. What we aren’t sure about yet is if this is the official build that could be pushed to devices in the coming days.

If you are interested in potentially flashing, you will want to keep an eye on this DroidRzr thread.

Cheers Patrick, Johnny, and Mal_Eskrito!

    I just flashed this to my Droid RAZR about an hour ago and I gotta say that Im loving this build even though it is just a leak. I have all the RSD and recovery files in place in case I need to rever back to .173

    But this build is pretty sweet and I love the new webtop software. Im excited to see the official update whenever we get it.

    On a side note, I have tried a couple other roms using bootstrap and safestrap and i always ended up bricking my phone. This one works great and I didnt brick while flashing this.

  • HuskerHog

    Anyone getting updated to ICS through the soak test?

  • Fujifilmfloppy

    I was just about to root my phone. Should I wait to get the ICS update? If i do it now will the update mess it up? I have droid razr. Sorry newbie here

  • Djwill4

    Webtop shows beta from that screenshot. Hopefully that gets changed!

  • Felipe Ortiz

    If I rooted my Razr, do I still getting ICS update or not, or if a get it I will lost the root? anybody knows?

  • Ortizchief

    If I rooted my Razr, do I still getting ICS update or not, or if a get it I will lost the root? anybody knows?

    So we delete peoples posts now if we dont agree ?? This group sucks !!!

  • Steve

    Who cares about ICS ? I dumped the Gnex cause I hated ICS and that phone and bought the Razr Maxx , I will not install ICS on my Maxx, ICS is unfinished and has to many quirks to be useful, I could not get rid of that phone fast enough , when I get the notification to download a new software update, I will decline !

  • Tony Allen

    When are we gonna see a Bionic ICS leak 🙁

    • Boneebone

      Moto should’ve gave ICS to the Bionic first.

      • just like they should have released it over a year ago or else never have released it at all. o well…. can’t be too far off

  • Hfd1113

    We all wanted it now. Give Motorola a hand for waiting until it was ready and really, it wasn’t too long. Here comes Wednesday!

  • yarrellray

    I am happy for all the devices that receive this update Verizon better be doing some work. Bottom line now we need to have the update for the GALAXY NEXUS to 4.0.5 AND IT BETTER BE JUST AS SOON. 

  • Daniel Archibald33

    All you Nexus owners need to realize that the first Nexus was built by HTC. Samsung phones are garbage. Mostly plastic devices that may have the latest software but have lackluster hardaware. Quit trolling Motorola posts. We are finally getting ICS and we are happy. You dont see us rubbing it in your faces.

    Update: and its down again -_-

  • Cliff05rsx

    I wonder if the razr will be able to take screen shots with ics?

    • KRS_Won

      I hope so. I’ve been putting off buying an app for it. My X2 could do it for free with Andross because of it’s Tegra2 chip.

    • Asuriyan

      As far as I know it’s a universal feature. Volume down and power.

  • Knlegend1

    Can my Droid 3 get some love?

  • E Diddy

    I have a GNex and I like it, but I can’t help but reconsider my choice. The huge battery of the MAXX and the build quality make me want to do a swap. I run a custom ROM on my GNex now, but I don’t think I need that.

    • tjmonkey15

      I’ve considered this switch as well.  I really like stock ICS on the Nexus though, so if Moto Blurred it up too much in next week’s release, I’ll stick with my Nexus.  If not, I may be looking to eBay for a Maxx.

      • hkklife

        I cannot WAIT for someone in the know to do an unbiased head-to-head comparison between the RAZRs w/ ICS and the GNex. 

        If ICS was available right NOW I’d probably get a Maxx over the Nexus.   But what I’m really holding out for is a next-gen Moto device like the fighter with ICS out of the box, a really good camera, and a 4.6″ or better 720p screen. 

        • tjmonkey15

          Yeah, I’d like to see what the Galaxy S III (if VZW gets it) has to offer, as well as other “next-gen” phones.  I’m hoping that they’ll start building LTE into the SOC (or whatever all the proper IT mumbo jumbo should be) as a way to improve battery life, which I think is the biggest downfall of current 4G phones.

        • LiterofCola

          Yeah, I’d hold on to what you have right now and wait to see what the S3 has to offer.

        • I would wait and see what the Galaxy S3 offers. If it has the ceramic back and the LTE chip is built into SOC then it would be hands down better then any Moto phone. It would have the build quality and the radio would be better. Should have a lot better battery life also on 4g.

          • STiK

            I know you didn’t just use the words “Samsung” and “Better Radio” in the same sentance.

          • If Samsung puts the LTE chip in the SOC and Moto doesn’t Samsung wins hands down for me. I would rather have more battery life using 4g then a little bit better signal.

    • Bodhiballer

      No doubt- back in December when I got my GNex, the Maxx wasn’t even a rumor yet and nobody believed ICS was due any time soon.  I also hated how overly thin the OG Razr was.  I think the Maxx is a much better proportioned device, and while I’m still not a fan of those beveled corners, that battery is enough to overlook them. Depending on just how Blurred this flavor of ICS is, I’d have to think about making the jump.  I’d love to see the head-to-head comparison, esp. with the camera taken into account.

  • Itsoverman

    Can someone help me on something, I installed this but my battery is dying very quick, I am not liking it. Can someone please tell me how can i got back to Stock RUU? Thanks

  • KRS_Won

    Does anyone know if this is an ICS kernel? I know the X and X2 had problems with the Gingerbread update because of Froyo kernels.
    -a hopeful MAXX owner

    • GazaIan

      It’s using Linux 3.0, so yes.

  • KRS_Won

    Hellaluyah! My prayers have been answered. 🙂

  • r0lct

    The sooner the rest of the devices get ics the better. It’ll get app developers who gave ignored it to update their apps.

  • Trbasil

    4.0.3, rabble rabble , my Nexus only has 4.0.2 rabble rabble rabble

    • snowblind64

      Been on 4.0.4 for a long time.

      Don’t really care if the RAZR gets 4.0.3 becuase the LTE Nexus will be on 4.0.4 officially very soon.

      • OhAaron

        I am on 4.0.4 as well, but the Verizon GNex is getting 4.0.5 OTA, not 4.0.4.

        • Guest

          4.0.4 still has some things they need to work on. Idk if it’s my rom or kernel right now but 0.4 is so fineeee

      • Nexus_killer35

         Nobody cares, there is no difference between 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 besides 1 number

  • Spc Hicks09

    Wow, where are all the people yesterday that said 100% without a doubt that it WOULD NOT be ICS? Hello? Anyone?

  • Beck Hansen

    Please just everyone stop the bashing, RAZR people just be happy you guys got ICS and GNex people stop hating that they GOT ICS.  Be happy with the phone you have!  Forget the OS, it’s almost like us as Android fans have been fragmented ourselves.  We all use Android so everyone STFU!  I still love the site but most of the comments lately sound like a bunch of elementary school children arguing what’s better than what at the lunch table…ok that’s my one rant…on with my weekend.  Peace out.

    • Johngi

      I AGREEE 110%

      • Keith Sumner

        I agree 2 BILLION PERCENT LOLL

        • Jellydroid13

          AGREED!!!! (for the record i have a GNex)

          • Noyfb

            Can’t we all just get a long!? and bash apple as a united group again.
            We All Love ICS and we all want everyone to be able to have it and enjoy!

    • MKader17

      I gotta like this. Nexus owners need to rejoice in the fact that others are getting ICS. The more phones that have ICS, the better it will be developed. I’m a little confused as to why a non-Nexus phone would ever be at an older OS version than the Razr, but whatever. At least we all got it.

      • r0lct

        Everyone gets caught up in the hype here or there, it’s the crusaders that need their head examined.

    • Lgreg64

      Agree. I grow tired of the in fighting going on here I use to love this site and the community now it’s just a lot of hate going on.

      • Fawkesguy1337

        100% agreement. Was a fun site to come to but even some article writers (mainly Kellex) even whines about what OS is out there, when the updates come and why some older models get the updates before the newer models. It’s all Android, updates will come and go. Pretty soon ICS will be obsolete anyway to make room for JellyBean. It’s all part of the software cycle…Deal with it!

    • LiterofCola

      + 700,000,000.00

    • Mylesh55

      Oh I agree completely sir! Its bad enough we have apple vs android, we don’t need battles on the same side 🙂 and really it doesn’t matter what OS you’re on, it matters what news there is about android here 🙂 Android pride is awesome, but we do not need to cut down other phone just cause the developer takes their time making things as perfect as they can 🙂 no phone is perfect, and something always has one better feature then the last phone. 🙂

      I do have to say something though, I’m fine with cool apps and android OS big news and of course the opinion blog posts. But is it just me or has this become “GalaxyNexusWithSomeDroidNews-Life”? Like its cool and all, but “Android-Life” has like one post a week or every couple days, can’t it get some love?

    • BhaktaRB

      Spread some Android love.. 😀

  • RedPandaAlex

    Wonder if the new web top is just the tablet version of Android

  • Keith Sumner

    More screenshots please, I want to see what the launcher and home screen look like!

    • MKader17

      x2 was this a stock build or did it have blur?

    • Johngi

      “it is pretty much exactly the same when compared to this thread.

      The bloat is still there, of course, along with some other things.

      Non-Stock Android apps are as follows (Up to you if it’s bloat or not):
      Amazon Kindle
      Apps (Looks like an app store just for Verizon)
      Caller Name ID
      Get Video Calling
      Mobile Hotspot
      MOG Music
      My Accounts, Files, Gallery, Music, Verizon
      NFL Mobile
      Slacker Radio
      Smart Actions (Yay these are here again!)
      Social Location
      (No Social Messaging app anymore)
      V CAST Tones
      Verizon Video
      VZ Navigator

          its more true ICS than I imagined it would be graphically which is awesome but the things the did change make me say WTF did you change these items.only to say u did? Example: multi colored and sized icons on notification bar.. that’s the point of ICS to make everything fluid and symmetrical.. that brings it right back to 2.3 and below.. the phone call screen with the colored boxes is just ugly same with the multi colored settings icons.. but at least they changed less than HTC which murdered ICS.. I mean ICS is perfect so any change will be negative other than a customisable lock screen button and noti bar power control other than that there is zero to change..

          • jroc74

            “ICS is perfect”

            Since I dont like that light blue in some areas and the big head icons where pics go in the People app and other places…I wouldnt say its perfect.

            At least one other person agrees with me…so for it to be perfect everyone under the sun would have to like …..everything….about ICS. Its nice…I wouldnt say its perfect.

            The way Moto kept their icons for the Contacts pics and uses darker colors….I like it better than stock ICS. On the leaks in the About Phone screen it shows the phone and data reception separately. IF stock ICS doesn’t do that…another plus for a Moto change. IF Moto kept T9 dialing…would be another plus for a Moto change.

          • ABerry5

            You talking about this


            Or this


            I never use the people app i use the dialer and look at my contacts that way i usually end up clicking the search button and typing a name most frequently.. the blue bar is slightly cheesy but then thats the color theme of ics and no skin has shown me a better layout with ics

          • jroc74

             Take the pics off…and thats what I dont like….the big head blue icons where the pics go.

            On stock ICS I would probably have to add pics for contacts since I dont like the way it looks. I never did that before…

      • Johngi
      • Lavoisier1794

        Doesn’t ICS have a remove/freeze the bloat feature?

        • snowblind64

          I would like to know if Moto left that feature intact.

      • razz

        You say Video Calling?
        Will that be built in or…

    • LiterofCola

      yessss, please

  • The Race To Die

    holy crap it actually looks like ics

  • This is FANTASTIC 

  • bloatware lol

    • Spc Hicks09

      Jealous bro?

    • Asuriyan

      Too bad ICS doesn’t have an option to freeze bloat natively. Oh, wait…

      • what are the chances motorola will actually keep that. glad i got away from them 

        • Asuriyan

          I don’t know whether that’s a feature that can be disabled. The way Android handles app installation has been pretty consistent between phones and versions- the one exception I can think of is the ATT restriction on sideloading.

          That would be one hell of a dealbreaker, though. I guess we’ll find out in the next day or so.

          There’s always the old fashioned root and TB freeze. Meh.

          • Droidzilla

            I’m sure the devs will come up with something for this.

          • jroc74

            Someone confirmed you can take screen shots on the ICS leak. I would assume they left the freeze bloat  feature in. Then again…this is Moto and Verizon we talking about…

    • LiterofCola

      fat kid lol

  • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

    4.0.3? Weren’t a lot of Razr owners saying yesterday how their soon coming ICS build would be 4.0.4?

    • Spc Hicks09

      It’s still ICS regardless.

      • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

        I know. Just tired of hearing all the BS from Razr owners about how they were getting a newer version of ICS than us Nexus owners, when they didn’t.

        • LiterofCola

          I honestly don’t care, just happy to get ICS.

        • I didn’t see a single razr owner say that. What I did see were a lot of nexus owners getting mad over the very possibility that something could have 4.0.4 before their phones did, but hey I didn’t sit there and read all the comments.

    • 4.0.4 was just released, no way OEMs had a chance to release a build with it. 4.0.3 has been out for months and is what almost all phones will see other than the Nexus or stock tablets.

      • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

        I got a response from The Holy One Himself. I’m honored.

  • LionStone

    Now what were those guys saying yesterday that this wasn’t gonna be ICS !?

    • Spc Hicks09

      They’re in the corner holding their GNex and crying saying “you’re not special anymore.”

      • TheDude

        More like living easy knowing they can do whatever they want with their $500+ device.

        • Spc Hicks09

          As can I since OTA Root Keeper allows me to keep root.

          • TheDude

            Yeah we’ll see about that. Enjoy the Motorola software.

          • niteperson

            I will.  Thanks.

      • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

        Actually, were in the corner laughing over how Razr owners are just getting ICS. Ha!!! Its kinda cute that you all finally got it. Enjoy!

        • LionStone

          Really ? “Cute”? Ten year old girls say “cute”.

        • LiterofCola

          Try harder

        • hmm…..

          Thanks for being a cute ICS beta tester. By the way, I think you mean ” we’re ” unless you actually were in the past but got over it. 🙂

  • Spc Hicks09

    Where are the nay-sayers now? U mad bros?

  • Johngi

    I just bought this phone yesterday in pristine condition yesterday, and i was up early this morning when i left the tip!! 

  • jjrudey

    So this can be flashed with stock unrooted?

  • ugh that status bar looks ugly as all hell. leave it to moto to ruin something that was fine the way it was.

    wasn’t there a old leak that had the normal ICS status bar?

    • Michael Forte

      What are you talking about? That looks almost exactly stock except for the 3G icon.

    • lol uhhh it looks like stock?

      • Nicholas

        It’s at least stock-themed.  The network 3G/4G indicator is obviously different, but then the strength indicator appears to be different too, representing a total 5 bars strength instead of 4 bars like stock.  The battery icon looks tweaked as well.  We see that they stuck with stock colors and font, that’s more than we’ve been able to say about Moto in the past =P

    • Mannysaurus

      I own a Galaxy Nexus and I have to say I’m diggin the status bar. I’ll probably download a theme somewhere along the way to change mine to look like that (only 3G/4G signal). I don’t know why Galaxy Nexus owners are so against RAZRs and why RAZR owners are having a witch hunt over Galaxy Nexus users. As far as I’m concerned, ICS has been out for months for the RAZR, Galaxy Nexus, Rezound, Incredible, etc. I thought everybody that visited this website rooted their phones.

  • Michael Forte

    I’m amazed by how much it actually looks like ICS.
