    So, this side loading deal; Is it reversible? I would like to try an actual update of JB, not just a ROM, but would like to maybe go back to ICS just in case.

    I have read that there is currently no way to get back to .211 (ICS) after making the jump to 98.72.8 (JB). There's a good dev community for this phone though, so I'm sure something will pop-up eventually.

    I pulled the update from online, put it to the SD card and had zero problems. Love the new notification pull down and Google Now.

    Yes, very smooth and fluid from screen to screen. Only one minor complaint so far. The "Sticky Notes" widget is gone from this update. Not a big deal but I did enjoy its convenience for quick note taking and reminders. I'm sure there are many replacements in the Play Store but that's not really the point. I was using it and now I can't. Otherwise, I'm very pleased with Jelly Bean.

    Is the UI still five screens or has it switched to the RAZR M, HD and MAXX HD UI, where you swipe to the left from home for quick settings and all your homescreens are to the right of main?
    It is still five screens.

    Had to revert back to 4.04 stock (I used the Droid Razr Utility 1.82), then sideload the upgrade. Once done, smooth as butter... Loving JB on this phone now. I actually like it now. I liked it with gingerbread. I felt the ICS upgrade wasn't that great. Phone felt slugish.

    I got the JB update yesterday. Accidentally downloaded and installed without thinking. Looks a lot like Windows mobile, which I despise, and causing me some annoying, albeit minor, issues. Here's a list so far:

    -Separated my joined contacts.
    - Isn't syncing FB properly with my contacts.
    - Contact pics are all pixilated and blurry.
    - Text message occasionally won't show 'Compose Here' box.
    - Wifi disconnects, turns off, and turns back on randomly.
    -Favorite Contacts widget is completely borked.
    - Lots of presets for app usage (especially using Gmail instead of native email app) have been erased.

    That's what I've got so far. Going to clear cache and see it that helps at all. Will report back.

    installed from online.. Works great didn't even need a reboot or cache wipe!

    Smooth transitions
    Fast and more responsive
    New gallery is awesome
    Google now and new voice search are great
    Love the new notification bar

    I guess there isn't an official change log :

    I Thought the search search bar was going to be part of the launcher instead of widget though??

    My Razr Maxx said yesterday that an update was available and it was downloading. Never materialized. So I finally rebooted after a couple hours. Not there. Been checking via settings every sense (pun intended : )).... Say I am up to date. Obviously not.. Does my phone being rooted and having a launcher have any affect on downloads? Can I do a manual download or push? P.S. I have wi-fi turned off.

    I'm also having wi-fi issues, with certain routers.

    No issues with the favorites widget on mine. Also, no issues with loss of app settings/defaults.

    Here's my short list of issues:
    • Don't know how to access the music player. In ICS we had "My Music" - can't find the app in JB.
    • Don't know how to access my DLNA servers. In ICS we had options in "My Gallery" and "My Music" to access DLNA servers.
    • Have multiple camera galleries (duplicate images), but one doesn't behave properly. I don't want to delete it because I'm sure I'll be deleting some images. When I searched the phone, there were not duplicate files anywhere. I think this is an artifact of the renaming of the SD card.


    Otherwise it seems to be running well after a cache clear.
