Install Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Motorola RAZR XT910

Almost a month ago, Motorola rolled out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX (XT910) that brings many handy features while enhancing performance including so many Motorola apps and widgets (check out Droid RAZR / Droid RAZR Maxx Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update changelog here).

However if you are not able to install update officially on your phone through OTA, simply download and install the OTA update manually, this guide shows you how to download and install Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update on RAZR/RAZR MAXX manually. Keep in mind that this update is compatible with just Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX with model number XT910, don’t try on XT912.

Your phone must be on stock Android 4.0.4 firmware build 672.180.41.XT910.Retail.en.EU however rooting doesn’t disturb. Battery of phone should be charged and you need an external SD card. Backup everything because the below procedure may wipe data, you can sync your contacts with Gmail account and for messages use SMS apps, lastly use the carbon Android app to backup apps and data.

DISCLAIMER: Please proceed the below guide at your own risk, Android Egis will not be held responsible if your device lost data or gets damaged following this guide.

Instructions

Step #1: Download Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX from here (File Name: Blur_Version.672.180.41.XT910.Retail.en.EU.zip).

Step #2: Transfer the downloaded zip file to SD card of your phone.

Step #3: Turn your phone off.

      this firmware update may not be compatible be your model number or you’re unable to fulfil requirements:
