    It's time for me to part with my Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX. I've been running the leak since early April with no problems, but the official update is now out. It's gone from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 and has turned the RAZR into a global phone. What kind of person would I be to leave it on a leaked version that can never accept over the air updates though.

    *WARNING* - There is a possibility you will have to reflash your device.

    Below is a guide found on
    droidforums.net

    Official OTA ICS Update Guide for Droid Razr & Razr MAXX - adapted from rda990's
    These instructions worked flawlessly for me (I've adapted them from
    rda990's thread


    )

    I followed this tread for quite some time and tried various things going from the Android 2.3.6 - 6.12.181.XT912 on Droid Razr MAXX to update to ICS. I also received a softbrick after three attempts. For those of you that are concerned about softbricking, I recommend the following:

    READ EVERYTHING BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEPS - YOU WILL FACTORY RESET YOUR PHONE DURING THIS PROCESS ERASING ALL DATA (INCLUDING THE INTERNAL STORAGE!!!)

    Files needed (Links from my Website):


    Droid Razr MAXX ICS Files | Armorlight Technology – Public Site




    Drivers (included below in Matt's Utility).

    4.0.4 / 6.16.211.XT912 Update ---------->
    Blur_Version.6.12.181.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip




    (Don't worry if the name of the .zip is 6.12.181, it's supposed to be that way, it means that's the VERSION you are coming from)

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. Backup all your data (I recommend TitaniumBackup but you will have to have a rooted phone for that program to work). Otherwise use a utility like MyBackup (found in the Google Play).

    2. Make sure battery is AT LEAST 60% CHARGED, if not 100%.

    3. Download the official OTA "
    Blur_Version.6.12.181.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip


    " file from above.

    4. IMPORTANT! Place the file downloaded in step three into the ROOT of your EXTERNAL SD card. (DO NOT UNZIP THE FILE)

    5. Turn off the phone.

    6. Download the official OTA "
    DroidRazrUtility1.7forICS.zip


    " file from above.

    7. Unzip all the files into the ROOT of your computer (C:\). (Thanks loudneon)

    8. If you DO NOT already have the
    Motorola


    drivers installed, go into the "drivers" folder and select your OS type (64bit or 32bit). If you already have the drivers installed, continue.

    9. Connect the phone to your computer.

    10. Go into recovery by pressing and holding the Volume Up (+), Volume Down (-), and Power button all three at the same time. (Press and hold all physical buttons.)

    11. With the Volume Down (-) key go down to AP Fastboot and select it by pressing the Volume Up (+) key. You are now in AP Fastboot mode.

    12. From Step 4 files (Files extracted to C:\), double click on the "DroidRAZRUtility.bat" file.

    13. Press any key to get started.

    14. Select option 1 and follow the instructions.

    15. Once it is done with the process, your phone will be 100% ready to flash the ICS update.

    16. Power off your phone.

    17. Boot the phone into recovery mode by pressing and holding the Volume Up (+), Volume Down (-), and Power button all three at the same time. (Press and hold all physical buttons.)

    18. The menu will come up and select "Recovery".(Volume Down key to go down and Volume Up key to SELECT/ENTER Recovery.)

    *The Android and Exclamation mark logos will come up*

    19. Press both Volume Up (+) and the Volume Down (-) buttons at the same time. Release.

    20. With the Volume Down (-) button select "Wipe Data" and press the power button to select it.

    21. Once complete, go to "Wipe CACHE partition" and press the Power button to select it.

    22. VERY IMPORTANT! REBOOT YOUR PHONE again into recovery mode! - DO NOT BOOT UP THE PHONE TO THE OS!

    23. WIPE THE CACHE AGAIN!

    24. With the Volume Down (-) button go down to "Apply Update from SDCard" and press the Power button to select it.

    25. Volume Down (-) go to the “Blur_Version.6.12.173.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip” and select it with the Power button. (This is the one we put in the External SD in Step 2.)

    26. It will take a while to upgrade, PLEASE BE PATIENT

    27. Once it is done, go to "Reboot system now."

    28. Official ICS, Enjoy!!! =D

    29. If Desired, run Matt's Utility again to root your phone & install OTA RootKeepr (Make sure USB debugging is enabled).


    Once it's your first time starting ICS, it WILL take a while to load up, it is normal, it will also be "Optimizing applications" at first start up.

    Thank you to
    rda990


    for his
    original thread

    Yep...I used this to upgrade to ICS, no issues. The key is read over it, read AGAIN, then read one more time. FOLLOW the directions to the "T"...and don't freak out on your final boot...it does take longer than usual compared to other phones.
    *you will need to reflash as stated in the OP*
