Motorola Sends Invites for DROID RAZR M Soak Test, Jelly Bean Incoming?

This morning, Motorola’s forum manager Matt, has started the process of sending out the invites to their feedback community for a soak test that will take place for the DROID RAZR M. Motorola did say that by the end of the year, their new lineup of RAZR devices would be sporting Jelly Bean. Could this be it? It seems a bit early, but this is a “new” Motorola that is promising quicker updates. (more…)

DROID RAZR HD, RAZR M, and Atrix HD All Rooted

The new line of RAZR phones from Motorola have all been rooted today, thanks to Dan Rosenberg, aka @djrbliss. That includes the DROID RAZR M and yep, the RAZR HD. While we still need someone to confirm this method gaining root on the RAZR HD, you can see from my picture that it most certainly roots the RAZR M. Dan mentions that this method should work on the Atrix HD, Photon Q, and Razr i, as well.  (more…)

Download: Jelly Bean Android 4.1.1 for the DROID RAZR M

The first Jelly Bean build for Motorola’s new lineup of RAZRs has leaked this weekend, and the DROD RAZR M is the beneficiary (Blur version 98.11.35). As you can probably guess, this is a first build and probably not the OTA update that this device will eventually see, so if you would like to flash it, just understand that there is a chance that you will be stuck on this build. At this time, there are not fastboot files available for the RAZR M, so again, if you jump to this, be prepared to be there for a while.

With that said, you do not need to be rooted to do this. You can flash this update right over top of your current 77.111.10 Android 4.0.4 build, hence the name of the file.  (more…)

Motorola and Intel Announce the RAZR i, Powered by a 2.0GHz Atom Processor

Motorola and Intel announced the first phone of their partnership this morning in London, dubbed the RAZR i. The RAZR i looks almost identical to the RAZR M that was announced a couple of weeks ago, but the insides are quite a bit different. This is the first mainstream device to run one of Intel’s Atom processors, which has been clocked at 2.0GHz. While it’s only single-core, it should be incredibly efficient and powerful enough to get any task done without hesitation. Battery life is also said to be “40% more powerful than the competition,” whatever that means.  (more…)

Download: RAZR M Exclusive Wallpaper Not Found on the Device

If you head into a Verizon store today and buy a DROID RAZR M, part of the package will include a special paper from Motorola with an NFC chip inside. If you touch your NFC-equipped RAZR M to that paper, you are redirected to a website that features an “exclusive” wallpaper that you won’t find on the device itself. Since we are kind souls, we have the wallpaper for you above. Not bad, right?

Should you run into issues grabbing it from the embed above, you can also snag it here. The rest of the RAZR M wallpapers can be found here.
