Droid Razr

So, lucky surprise for OG Droid Razr owners everywhere. Christmas morning, a server update at Motorola caused a glitch to push out the long overdue Jelly bean update to the Droid Razr. Some users reported failed updates while downloading, some managed to install it, and some (me included) managed to brick their devices trying to install the update.

I am no stranger to flashing ROMs or rooting or anything. I flashed back to stock using the DroidRazrUtilty 1.81, and then downloaded my update. It finished without the failure that most user reported. I clicked on install now, and the phone was lost forever. It even managed to wipe my SD card.

I got on the phone with Verizon about my issue. They told me that it was an accident and that I was one of the first callers to report a “bricked” device as most people couldn’t even download the update due to their failed download.

I argued with customer service for a bit, and this being my second Razr as the ICS update also bricked my device, they agreed to send me a Galaxy Nexus.

My brand spankin’ new Galaxy Nexus will be here tomorrow…. and you will see more articles than you can ever read!
