Motorola Razr/Razr Maxx to Get ICS Soak Test Instead of the Gingerbread Bug Fix

Man, the past week’s news about the Motorola Droid Razr/Maxx and its pending update(s) got a bit annoying and had me starting to think that Razr owners may never actually see an ICS update at all. First we saw a leaked Best Buy memo that claimed that an ICS update was supposed to begin the following week, which we all know never happened. Then, we heard that an ICS soak test was being prepared to push out to Moto testers only to find out it was just going to be a silly 6.12.181 Gingerbread maintenance update. Here we are the following week and nothing has happened, not even the Gingerbread maintenance update. Things are starting to look a bit shaky, no?

Well, by the looks of things over at the Motorola testers’ forums, Moto is now possibly scraping the 6.12.181 maintenance update all together in lieu for the actual ICS soak test. The Moto forum manager left a message for its testers (since removed) stating the following:

Looks like we got a surprise people. This regular soak test has now turned into an official soak test for Android 4.0 also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Please subscribe to this feed for updates and more information will be posted as soon as possible.

Thanks guys for hanging in there.

So there you have it folks. Whether you can take that comment to the bank or not is still up for debate. Either way I hope this BS comes to an end soon and you patient Razr owners finally get a taste of Android’s oh-so-good Ice Cream Sandwich. We will let you know if anything else changes or if the soak test does actually get under way. In the meantime, feel free to vent your frustrations in the comments below.
