A new update has been found for the DROID RAZR on Motorola’s servers as build 6.16.215 and it looks to be an important one. The baseband (LTE radio in this case) and kernel have both been updated. Forum members who have already flashed this are claiming that they can tell a difference on the connectivity front, too. Along for ride is Google’s Chrome, though we aren’t sure if Moto is also removing the stock browser. An Atrix HD leak appeared last week that had Chrome included as well, so we’re thinking that Motorola is ready to accept the non-beta Chrome that was released a couple of weeks back, as the new standard for their devices going forward.
In order to flash this, you need to be stock 6.16.211, which means no frozen apps. Also, if you want to return to 6.16.211, you can via RSD Lite and the leaked fastboot file from last week.
The clock widget from the Atrix HD that we featured yesterday, has apparently been pulled from a device and is available for you to download. The clock itself is interactive, showing you time, weather in multiple cities, and your battery and data plan percentages. It’s easily one of the better clock widgets we have seen in some time. If it sounds like something you would love to have on your device, then jump at the download link below. (more…)
With fastboot files, you are able to relieve your Motorola phone from a variety of sticky situations. Using a program called RSDLite, you can flash these and recover your phone should you soft brick it or find yourself in some sort of a bootloop after tinkering too much. Basically, what I’m saying is that if you own a DROID RAZR or RAZR MAXX, you need to download the new files that were released last night that can get you to stock 4.0.4, which is the OTA update you all received last month. It’s also a decent way to start fresh on a clean 4.0.4 if you have been running leaks or other ROMs.
Hit up the links below to download. You want the 6.7.2-180 build file.

AT&T Galaxy SIII Will be Available In-Store July 6
Up until now, if you really wanted the AT&T Galaxy SIII you had to order it from their online store. But Big Blue just announced that they will finally start stocking the phone in their stores this week. Unfortunately, if you were looking to show off your new phone to everyone at your 4th of July cookout, you’re going to be out of luck, however, head into the store on Friday if you need it then.

On the last day of Q2, Motorola and Verizon have made the Ice Cream Sandwich update available to the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX.
It can be pulled by heading into Settings>About>System updates.
Go get some.
If you have yet to receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update on your DROID RAZR or RAZR MAXX, you should be able to manually download it tomorrow, June 30. This news comes courtesy of a Verizon PR rep, which if true, would get them in on the Q2 deadline that Motorola announced a few weeks ago.
We know that many of you are frustrated and still without it even though the soak test was completed at the beginning of the week, so cross your fingers that this is finally it.
From what we have heard, the soak test of Ice Cream Sandwich for the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX has come to a close and the rollout to the public should be happening at any time. At least a handful of readers are claiming to have already received the update this morning (or late last night), so we wanted to toss out a post to try to capture the situation as it progresses. As soon as you receive it, be sure to pop into the comments and let others know. If you had some trick that forced it onto your phone, feel free to share that as well. If you haven’t seen it yet and are pulling hairs from your head, snap a photo of those hairs so that we can feel your pain.
Let us know!
With soak tests for the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX live, it should be only a matter of days before the update gets pushed to the public. Since this OS upgrade is massive in terms of features and functionality, Motorola asked us if we would be interested in showing most of it off to you ahead of time to get you prepared. We thought, “Why the heck not?” So when a device with Android 4.0 preloaded showed up on our doorstep today, we jumped in to highlight what we believe to be the most significant changes. For those that haven’t kept up on the ICS leaks for these phones, I have a feeling that you will be pleasantly surprised at what Moto has done here. If you thought HTC scaled back its skin of Android, wait until you see this. (more…)
