DROID RAZR M Update Approved by Verizon as Build 98.15.66, It’s Just a “Maintenance” Release

razr m update

If you’re the proud owner of the RAZR M you should be excited to hear that Verizon has officially announced a small update (build 98.15.66) that will squash a few bugs with the device. This looks to be the exact same maintenance release that we saw soak testers get last week.  Not as exciting as a new version of Android, but fixing WiFi connectivity, video streaming and camera improvements are all welcome fixes.

The update is 80MB in size.

To check to see if the update is available, head into Settings>About Phone>Software updates.

    I have one of these and have it rooted. The last time this phone had OTA it took some adjustments to the exploit that allowed Root in the first place, so I will not be doing this update until I have found confirmation that root is reachieved. I also find it suspicious that VZW pushes this update shortly after the bootloader has been unlocked. Based on their S3 updates, I would be confident that this will relock the bootloader, and maybe even keep it from being unlocked again. Be very careful.

  • This update helped a lot. Everything is faster and my WiFi before the update in my room was only 1 or 2 bars and would cut out periodically. Now it is at 2-3 and hasn’t cut out yet.

    Just talked to a rep because I haven’t received it yet. He contacted Motorola and apparently it has been delayed. They didn’t give him a reason.

    I really hope this fixes the wifi stability. I just recently purchased this phone and never had a phone that constantly drops wifi. I have had numerous other Android, iOS and Blackberry devices, this is my favorite so far.

    I maintain this to be the best device for most users in regard to size and function. A great camera would have made it unstoppable.

    Mine says it’s up to date, but it doesn’t have this build #. Is there another way to get it?

      This is barely being pushed pout to soak test this morning. Will probably be out to public in a few days.

  • Warwick

  • Daniel Maginnis
