Many Droid RAZR/RAZR Maxx users in the US were surprised with the goodness of Jelly Bean, Android 4.1.2 — a perfect gift for Christmas, where Verizon and Motorola played the Santa. Though Jelly Bean upgrade is expected in the original Droid RAZR series, this was way too fast. Some users reported getting the upgrade option via OTA, and were able to upgrade it successfully. Meanwhile, many users got stuck at download, and it was reported that the build went out by mistake, or as a part of user testing program.
Whatever it may be, it is now almost certain that the Droid RAZR/RAZR Maxx will be getting the taste of the latest Android OS from Google very soon. However, Google has already released the minor upgraded version of Jelly Bean — 4.2, few weeks back, which has only made to the Nexus devices as of now. This upgrade however, isn’t the latest version, but 4.1.2 is relatively newer than the 4.1.1.
A few weeks ago, Motorola has officially announced the upgrade plans to Jelly Bean for it’s smartphones across the world, which includes the original Droid RAZR series (and the international RAZR XT910) launched in November 2011. Check out the latest upgrade plan here.

And, if you are in India, keep your fingers crossed. The Motorola upgrade schedule says — “Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) planned for select countries and carriers”, for the Asia-Pacific region.
