XYBoard 10.1 Jelly Bean Waiting Room [Official]



The Droid XYboard 10.1 (Verizon) will soon begin receiving an update to Android 4.1.2, code named Jelly Bean, If you own an XYBoard 10.1 (Verizon) tablet and are waiting for your own bag of Google Jelly Beans, this is the waiting room for you! Here we will track the roll out progress, address upgrade issues and make certain everyone receives the Jelly Bean flavors they are waiting for. When the OTA distribution window has closed, we will make certain no one gets left behind (beanless).



Here's some of the new capabilities that will be delivered with Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean):




  • Project Butter - Buffering tweaks, increased frame rates, a system which keeps rendering and touch input events in sync better, and touch prediction come together to make everything run just a little bit more nicely.


  • Offline voice typing - When your device has a poor data connection or no connection at all, voice-to-text tasks are crunched locally instead of in the cloud.


  • Google Now - It's Google's attempt to predict what you'll need and get it to you before you even realize you need it. In theory, your device should learn your habits, interests and so on, and then offer up relevant traffic, weather and point-of-interest information.


  • Voice search - Google's voice search is now powered by Knowledge Graph, meaning that you'll receive what Google deems to be the best answer to your query first, followed by relevant web results.


  • Notifications - In Jelly Bean, the notification bar can do more than ever. It can now expand, to show you a portion of your inbox, rather than just the number of emails waiting for you.



As you repeatedly and anxiously check for updates every few minutes, this waiting room will provide you a place to hang out with fellow XYBoard owners waiting to receive their Android Jelly Bean, providing therapy and a venting outlet as you nervously pace the waiting room floor.



During your stay in this upgrade purgatory, this thread will address:




  • Any failed or corrupted update(S).


  • Any other unexpected surprises.


  • Communications, download or reboot issues (Motorola also keeps a watch here).


  • Suggestions or lessons learned for those who are still waiting


  • Issues with unlocked or rooted XYBoard tablets. Note that the update will fail unless the tablet is running a stock image and locked..



This waiting room is yours, so feel free to discuss any other topics related to the upgrade before, during and after the wait. As always, please let me know how I can help your wait. I will be posting on this thread if there are additional communications from Motorola about this release, so consider subscribing. For customers with Droid XYBoard 8.2" tablets, there is another JB waiting room thread in that forum discussion area.



Once the new Jelly Bean update process begins rolling out puiblicly, I will open another thread to discuss Jelly Bean post-implementation issues, tips and suggestions.



Current Release Statuses:



11/22/13  -  Jelly Bean 4.1.2 for Droid XYBoard 10.1" tablets (Verizon) is preparing for public release



 



Welcome to the waiting room, grab a cyber soda, Jelly Bean candy and a cozy chair!



-Doc

Re: XYBoard 10.1 Jelly Bean Waiting Room [Official]


Do we have an actual non-laughable answer from Moto yet on why the WiFi only version is not getting the upgrade?  I'm pretty ticked off I paid full retail ($599) for a tablet that was newer than the Xoom (heck the Xoom was 250-300 at the time I bought my Xyboard) and the Xoom is getting the upgrade?  



This WILL BE the last Moto product I buy if it does not get the upgrade.  The lack of an upgrade for the IDENTICAL tablet (other than not having the 4G radio) does not pass the smell test!

I have the 10.1 4g version, but I took my sim card out and cancelled data because it did this "refresh" issue, where apps would start over randomly.  Can I still get the upgrade or will I need to insert a sim card?

@benjamin19,



Yes, you will still be upgraded without the SIM card installed or a data plan. The OTA upgrade servers look for you MEID, which is hard coded to the radio ID of the tablet. Of course, you have to be connected to the Internet to receive any upgrade.

Hello Ray,



This upgrade has NOT been released to the public yet, only to a few devices as a pre-release test. Once the public release begins, it will be staged to the total population of owners over a few days to spread out the volume. These virtual waiting rooms are created to keep everyone updated on the progress of the release and once underway, to ensure everyone receives the update successfully.

Thank your for answer. And thank you for this room, I've found answers on almost all questions. But, when will start the public release. And how can I take a part in pre-release testing?
