Here's a quick guide to get to the latest OTA Jelly Bean. Looks like its Official: http://www.droid-life.com/2012/11/30...-build-9-1-41/

and, yes, you CAN fastboot back to 0.7.2 after applying this update: http://www.droidrzr.com/index.php/to...t-firmwarefxz/

This guide will take you from any current version, back to original factory release, root, and then update to 0.7.2, and then new Jelly Bean.

If you are ALREADY rooted on 0.7.2, then simply do Step 0-1 and 12-22.

Requirements:
1. You have a PC and have the Motorola Drivers installed for your Phone when its plugged in as USB.
2. You have an SD Card for your Phone (yes, you can do this without an SD card, but its not covered in this guide.)

Issues
1. You dont have an SD Card? -- OK, you can do it without, but its not covered here. hint, you need to use adb a little and push the update to the proper location when you dont have an SD card.
2. You dont have the Motorola drivers installed for your Phone? Step 4, or Step 6 failed? --- OK, in that folder, open 'Drivers[REQUIRED]' and run either the 32bit or 64bit version depending on your OS.

I originally liked the idea of rooting, then I found out that I don't need root to reliably freeze apps, and messing with verizon stuff makes it hard to flash updates in the future, so I'm on the fence... so I guess are there any downsides to rooting? If not then i'd do it for the heck of it.

Update to .41 went flawlessly after downgrading from .39, removing safestrap and starting anew. That said, I found it odd that when I updated to .41, my phone s running painfully slow. Upon examination, I found that the CPU frequency was being restricted to 384mhz for both min and max. Using setcpu I changed this of course, but I am curious to know of anyone else experienced this? I still feel like the .41 update runs more slowly than the vitreous rom with safestrap.

I'm am having a hard time believing this is going to be the official release. HDMI output is still wonky. There is no way to change the resolution and even the overscan option that was present in ICS is missing. Why would Motorola remove such a useful feature?

Lol you guys cant just wait less than a week to take the official OTA???

Also just wanted to point out that if anyone else here has the developer edition you don't need to go through this. You can just simply root the JB OTA.
