Motorola Droid 4 on Verizon to Get an Update soon; Leaked Version Now Available

April 19, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

This is party time for all you Droid 4 owners who are on Verizon. You will be shortly gifted by an Over The Air update notification. After the February launch on Verizon’s 4G network Motorola Droid 4 is about to get its first update now.

Though it is not yet official yet, the update is rumoured to bring a set of bug fixes and exceptional enhancements to one of the most acclaimed phone on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

With the update hitting your phone, you can enjoy improved battery life. The update is heard to bring fixes to the present problem with back lighting on the keyboard.

In addition, the new Android update will bring better Wi-Fi experience to Motorola Droid 4 users on the Big Red network. The update is smaller in size with just 18 MB but brings a lot more than what we have told you now.

Though the network is yet to send out the update notifications officially, the update is already leaked and available for download here.

If you are geeky enough to try it manually, you may put it in the root of the SD card on the phone and reboot the rig and hold down the volume keys and power keys together, to get to the boot loader menu.

Now select recovery with volume up keys and press down both volume keys when an exclamation marks pops up. Go down and select ‘Apply update from SD card’, with the help of the power button.

You can now scroll down to select the file which you downloaded to get your hands on the fixes brought by the update much before it goes official.
