Update: Rogers Motorola RAZR users reporting the upgrade to ICS is now available

Ian Hardy

August 25, 2012 10:19 am


The Rogers Motorola RAZR was originally pegged for an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich “late August,” then Motorola Canada revised this date to “early September.” We’ve been getting reports from several Rogers customers over the past day informing us that the upgrade for the RAZR to OS 4.0.4 has been pushed through OTA.

If you have the Rogers RAZR hit Menu >> Settings >> About phone >> System software updates >> Check now to see if ICS is there waiting for you. Let us know in the comments below.

Update – August 30th: The upgrade was initially scattered, but we’ve been getting lots of tips and comments of users being able to now upgrade to ICS.

(Thanks Jeff & Rolo!)

  • denon1978

  • Steve J.

    I got mine last nigh around 11:30. In Toronto.

  • mbourd25

    Can’t wait for the Motorola Atrix 4G upgrade.

  • Therm0

    Nothing for me, either 10:37 AM (Telus SIM). They may be doing a small group of IMEIs first then broadening as the week goes…a soak test of sorts.

  • jonathan

    Nothing here yet, but Rogers razr on Saturday at 11

  • Andrew F

    Still nothing in Cambridge Ontario. Friend got it in Toronto though.

  • Matthew S

    As of 11:20am no update yet for Rogers RAZR and im in North Bay.

  • Nomes

    I wonder when the fido phones will get the update. If I’m using a fido phone unlocked on Rogers can I get the rogers update.

  • Jon

    Still no update here in Hamilton. My razr was from Fido and unlocked. Will I still get the update with Rogers?

    Why can’t all phones be like the Nexus S?

    You can upgrade, downgrade, install custom roms whenever you want…

    Don’t have to wait for any carrier, its all up to you…

  • Don M.

    Checked the phone. Not available. :( . Turned phone off and restarted. Got it! So cool.

  • j.c

    nothing for me yet in toronto

  • Meitao

    They rolled it out to 1000 phones first to see if it is okay.

  • Watsan

    They rolled it out to 1000 phones first? Can we confirm that Rogers even sold 1000 razr handsets?

    Don’t get me wrong, I love my razr, but aside from mine I’ve only ever seen 4.

    • Andrew F

      I have seen a few around my city they are pretty popular around here.

  • Therm0

    I am seeing a couple of posts on Motorola Canada’s FB page that are from folks on Fido, so it looks like they’re rolling out there too. Still no update for me yet. I am still fairly certain they’re doing a soak test to see if everything is go for full roll-out, or they’re rolling it out by IMEI block or something.

  • Carleton

  • Dariusz

    False reporting??? No update whatsoever.

  • KetaCDX

  • Rockin Rog

    So when it comes we are not forced to take it correct? Can I do a MyBackupPro of my phone state and come back to Gingerbread? Reason I ask is there are users that have 4.0.4 and well yea.

    I have been running the leaked Rogers release for over a month. My About phone screen indicates version 672.180.310.XT910.Rogers.en.CA. This is a slightly lower version than the 672.180.352.XT910.Rogers.en.CA shown in the screenshot.

    I’ll be curious to see if my phone updates. It’s 9:00 AM Monday, Aug 27th and no update is available.

  • Mahaz

    GOT IT! FInally got my school email to sync, ohh, no word on the ICS yet. I doubt the users who got ICS will report on this comment thread, honestly would you!

  • Jeff

    I’m the guy that sent in the screenshots that are on this thread. Not sure what info you’re looking for, Mahaz. I got the update notification on Friday and downloaded it via wifi when I got home. No trick to it or anything. Perhaps it’s updating by block? I got my XT910 2 days before it went retail, so not sure if that has anything to do with it. It’ll come for everyone else so I’m guessing patience is all that’s needed.

  • Sina

  • Robert

    I asked Rogers today about the ice cream sandwich upgrade for my razr and all I got was they should have it for release shortly. Its controlled by Motorola not Rogers. I’m in toronto and I want it faster but Rogers can’t do squat and Motorola just gives me the same answer’s soon.

  • Devon D.

    Downloading it right now…. HAPPy DAYS

  • Warskull

    Got it last night…looking good

  • Shawn

    “Got the update no problems but can’t say I’m loving ics yet!”

    Seriously? Is there anything that can make people like you happy?? Complain about no ICS for months and once it finally arrives, not so sure. wtf.

    I am for one very glad the update is here!!!

  • Claude Goyette

    Any sign of it in Montreal yet?

  • Rockin Rog

    Took update after seeing it available last night in Blind River Ontario around 11pm. Went smooth, like the long press on home screen to browse recently opened apps alot.
    Colour scheme is appealing, overall smoothness is a tad less than gingerbread was however I see you can tweak in the development menu for usability. Flash using Opera was a glitch at first but the trick was to download flash 11 again and install..good to go. All my apps work as intended but like I mentioned there is slight lags here and there but the interface and new phone feel quickly overcomes this. For a 300 Meg file for free I feel I have a new phone that is great and looks cool…that will last me till my next venture. Thanks Motorola!

  • Steve

    just received update inPort Hope downloading as I type

  • Rockin Rog

    Did a box of rubber chooch’s just fall out of the sky…awful quiet in here!

  • Ryan

    So I finally got the update, but i gets halfway through and quits :/

  • chris

    Got it friday @ 9 am razr Edmonton Alberta

  • Bernie Clayton

    Aug 30/12 4:30pm was my update.

  • Dariusz

    Received my update last night, Barrie, ON.

  • Rockin Rog

    Fixed my lags and stutters. If you experience this you can do a clear cache (google razr clear cache)…then perform a full data reset which can be performed from the system privacy menu. This will wipe your phone to a new state so back up your phone first of any files, pics music.
    The cache reset may all you need to do and it doesn’t remove your data.

    As it stands I’m loving ICS and its appearance is stunning.

  • Richard

    it downloaded great and quick and is running great

  • Claude Goyette

    Does Anyone know what are the différences between the leaked ICS and the New OTA version? I find it risky to revert to GB before installing the New version.

  • icyhotonmynuts

    Update fails to install halfway through. This is bullshit.
