Although Droid 3 is new release phone, since it’s released in July 2012, Motorola still have not plan to update this android phone to Ice Cream Sandwich. They officially said that for now they are planning to give ICS update only for Droid Razr, Droid Bionic, and tablet device Motorola Xoom. Luckily we still have a hope since a developer from xda-devs currently build ICS update for Droid 3, he build it using AOSP source code which has been released in November.

ICS Update Droid 3

Some features reported to be working in this Android 4.0.1 custom ROM which includes sound, GPS, WiFi, SD card, Bluetooth, data connection through 3G and hardware accelerated graphics. You must notice that this ROM is a alpha build, recommended for developers and advanced users only, before planning to flashing this ICS update you need get root access and install custom recovery. We need to wait for the devs to build the stable version since this build need some bug fixes including camera. For those who more interested to try CM9, we need to wait for CyanogenMod Team release it for our Motorola Droid 3, they will be announce it in early 2012. Not interesting to flash with unofficial custom ROM, upgrade your android phone to Droid Razr today only for $80.
