Why don't you try asking the pros over on the RAZR forum. They're better equipped to help you. Unfortunately, no one can really help you with your problem(s) here.

You're not giving us much to go by. What is it doing? Does the update itself lock up, like the latest update for the X have a tendency to do and throw you in boot loader? Or is it not running well?

The home launcher is really slow and sometimes not responsive. My browser has trouble with some flash videos and freezes. I have a lot of dropped signals. Phone is hotter than ever before. Inconsistent with installing or uninstalling apps. Battery drains really fast now. Pictures quality has gotten blurry. Force closes several apps. Quality in HDMI connection has downgraded as well

With as many issues as you are having, I would suggest a factory reset. You can try clearing cache only first, as it won't wipe your data, but I think you're gonna have to try the factory reset with all your issues.
Might want to look at an alternate launcher, I'm using Apex, very smooth, it and Nova Launcher were developed for ICS. I also didn't like the stock browser, I'm using maxthon, you may want to consider an alternate.
As for battery, run your phone for a few days, many have experienced better/good battery after it's had time to settle in.

You will get more help at Droid RAZR Forum - Motorola Droid RAZR Community - Active Topics (http://www.razrforums.com/index.php?pageid=active_topics), you'll see quite a few names from here over there

Thanx! But it wont even let me factory reset. It starts like it is then just stops :/ very weird. Is there any way I could root 4.0.4 to maybe throw on a custom rom with a better os?

If you are having that many problems a ROM might not help, you may want to consider warranty replacement before rooting (if you can), as there is no recovery for ICS 211 yet.
You can root it, ICS 211 Root (http://www.razrforums.com/forum/droid-razr-ics-development/2203-ics-211-root.html)
You can install a custom ICS ROM, I don't have links handy

That's odd you cant even get in to do a factory reset?! They are a few people that had to factory reset to clear issues. : would keep trying.

I was lucky enough that i didn't have to and ICS runs perfect.

I agree seeking a warranty replacement might be the trick.

Ya seems like I am. Its actually would probably still have gingerbread. If it did come with gingerbread couldn't I root it and freeze the update?
