DROID RAZR M Receiving Update to 98.16.3 and 98.18.78 – Same Deal as the RAZR HD Update

razr m update

Update:  For some reason, Verizon is pushing out two different builds of 98.16.3 and 98.18.78. We aren’t sure what is different, but should we find out we will update the post.

The RAZR HD isn’t the only device seeing a Google Security patch, SMS fixes, and GPS enhancements – the DROID RAZR M is joining the party. The new update that was approved by Verizon this afternoon, brings the phone up to build 98.16.3. As I just mentioned, this update is almost identical to the update that was just approved for the RAZR HD and MAXX HD. It even includes new Backup Assistant and SmartActions apps.

Full details in the image above – the update will likely rollout within the next week. The update is 50MB in size.

    if this does not fix the connectivity problems i could care less. My phone will not stay connected to WiFi or 4G or 3G long enough to load most things.

      In that case, I guess you “could” care less. You meant to say “couldn’t care less”.

    No mention of a fix for the horrible connectivity problems when leaving a 4G area into 3G. :( Have to toggle airplane mode to get it to find the 3G in a reasonable amount of time.

      i’m glad i’m not the only one with this problem. connectivity is my main issue with this phone.

  • Bill

    Does it fix the “screen shake” or temporary screen position movement? Or the auto-generation of Google Search when coming out of the Gallery? Or does it just lock the boot loader……again? No, I haven’t rooted nor Rommed my phone.

    Is there a Stock rom for this phone? I don’t know if I can hold out much longer for a new phone with no soft keys

    Keep bringing it VZW! The HTC Butterfly just got 4.2.2 and Sense 5, so the Droid DNA won’t be too far behind! :-)

      If you already unlocked your
      bootloader, you can make an unlocked patched kernel/system/radio image
      to flash via recovery. That’s the main reason to get an unlocked
      bootloader, to be able to flash unsigned software.

    Off topic: I really hope this July 11th Motorola/Google thing is a peak @ a Motorola made nexus smartwatch.

      If it is, we won’t hear about it… unless someone wants to break their nda

    Looks like July will end up being the month of the locked bootloader on Verizon.

    This is why I loved that Motorola used the same internals with both devices last year. The software is near identical, so updates don’t have nearly any lag between the two.

    That said, if they were going to update to 4.2 anytime soon, its doubtful they would put out a security patch, so that makes me a sad panda.

      yeah i was just thinking that.
