Motorola Ice Cream Sandwich walkthrough on the DROID RAZR / DROID RAZR MAXX

After a long wait Ice Cream Sandwich has finally made its way to the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX. Motorola took the longest of the major Android manufacturers, but on the flip side, they left the main elements of stock ICS intact. I congratulate Motorola because at one point, everyone and their brother was knocking them with the Blur UI. Well Blur is no more and Motorola delivered.

The OTA update should start deploying any day now so we wanted to make sure you’re prepared with all the changes because this is a major update. I tried to highlight most of the major differences, but if I missed anything, please leave it in the comments. Of course your questions are encouraged as well. Grab a snack, a drink, and hit the break to see what Motorola has in store.

    umm this is nice and all but why the heck didnt verizon just release the droid 4 update along with the timing of this one. The hardware and os are so similar that it should be released already.

    After update my signal has gotten lousy. What is the difference between EVDO and CDMA?

  • joe

    EVDO is verizons 3g service. CDMA has always been verizons radio band.

    My signal also went to crap after update. Takes forever for pandora to load, and once it does, it stops to buffer constantly. 3 to 15 times per song. Also, Gingerbread gave you the “windows” tab on the browser. How do I close tabs/windows. I work in an all steel building, so if I don’t close stuff it kills my battery.

    After I downloaded the ice cream sandwich on my Android, when I re-started
    my phone all of my email files (inbox, sent, trash, etc.) were missing and I can not find them on the phone. Any suggestions as to how I might locate.
    Hope it did not delete my files.

    I heard that this update was going to allow me to unlock my phone using facial recognition…still havent been able to find out how that works. It also said with this update something about screenshots….still havent figured out how to do that either. I’m not tech savvy so most of this stuff is new to me. Also, when i press the back arrow, it just reloads the screen on certain apps. Not too happy about that.

      For screen shots you press the power button and the volume down key for two seconds.
