** THIS DOES NOT REQUIRE ROOT **
Hello friends! Found something for those of you willing to try it out.
6.16.214 Ics Upgrade Leak (To Be Installed From 211 Ics) - DroidRzr.com
Here I thought we were going to be without news for a while, but behold. A tiny upgrade. A "fix" rather.
This update is supposed to fix the battery issues that some users were encountering post ICS upgrade. I did not have terrible battery issues, but was interested to see if it could improve. I only just installed this update, so I am unable to give any feedback on it yet.
I share this with those of you who are willing to try it. This is just like sideloading the ICS update:
** This is the method I used. I was not rooted and was on stock 4.0.4 ICS **
** Some users have reported that using the utility provided in the above link works better for rooted phones **
** If you use the utility, it will update the Kernel number, but not the System Version number **
1) Download update from above link.
2) Place the update onto your external SD card. (root directory, not into any folders)
** If you want to revert back to .211, instead of placing the update on your external SD card, place the downgrade there, which is found in the link below **
3) Power down your phone
4) While phone is off, hold down both volume keys (up+down) and the power key.
5) Use the Volume Down key to select "Recovery" and then use the Volume Up key to select it.
6) When you see the Android being operated on, press both volume keys (up+down)
7) Scroll down with the Volume Down key to "Apply Update from External Storage" and press the Power Key to select it.
8) Scroll down with the Volume Down key to "Blur_Version.6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip" and press the Power Key to select it. This step begins installation.
Installation can take up to five minutes or more.
Going into Settings > About Phone should show that System Version is now 6.16.214.XT912, the supposed battery fix.
** If you do not wish to stay on .214, there is a Downgrade Leak that can be found here: **
It is essentially the same process as above, but instead of using the upgrade .zip, you use the downgrade .zip.
I am not the mastermind behind this, all credits to mattlgroff for all his amazing work. And if you need a more visual demonstration, W0017roid has a video in the above link as well.
If you have any questions or concerns, I will try and answer as best as I can, but please also try looking at the above forum link for answers as well as asking your questions.07-09-2012 01:26 PMLike 3
- Interesting. I look forward to seeing what it does for folks. I only had my Maxx like 5 days or so before the ICS release. I really haven't seen much battery change. I still get a solid 15-20 hours depending on use. Wonder what they really changed and when this will be actually released for OTA.07-09-2012 01:52 PM
- Wonder if this addresses the weaker radio in this build. Sucks on how bad the reception is now on my maxx. Around home it's fine...but it really bombs when I head out to area's where the signal is low. My maxx picked it up fine in these area's before ICS came out.07-09-2012 05:23 PM

- I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but at my girlfriend's house I normally would get 1-2 bars of 4G then occasionally drop to 3G for a bit. Now it's been hovering around 2-3 bars of 4G with no bump down to 3G yet. Been here for about two hours. Will report more later.07-09-2012 09:38 PM
