3.1 for EUROPE? Where is GERMANY? Are you kidding? Matt! HELP!

2011-08-09, 17:40 PM

I'm waiting since beginning of April to use my Xoom the way it was promised by Motorola.

I'm reading this forum since then.

OK.

After 4 months (which is more than enough time for whatsoever in IT!!!) you guys from Motorola anounce an update for EUROPE will be released on 2011-08-09.

Well - not to say that this is more than amazing after 4 months.

But I just had a look in the post from Matt and can't believe what I can read:

----------------------------------------

https://supportforums.motorola.com/message/444341#444341

3.1 available now for 3G units in the following countries:

  • Austria
  • Croatia
  • Denmark
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Romania
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
  • U.K.

Additionally, Android 3.1 is available now for Wi-Fi units in France.

--------------------------------------

WOW, this is great!

But where is GERMANY???????

Maybe you don't know this, but GERMANY is small little country in the middle of EUROPE!!

Simple question:

When will your german customers will get the upate?

Please! I don't want any kind of "... in the next few weeks.." answer. I realy can't read this kind of comment any more.

Just tell me when I can update my usless  device to an OS that support SD cards and USB!

Regards

And you know that I'm not going to provide any advance information. I'm sorry, but I simply can't respond. Germany is coming.

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

OK Matt,

I understand that YOU can't provide us an answer! But this must have a reason you're not responsible for.

So let me say it this way:

Thanks to Motorola for this refreshing and detailed information!

I  don't think that anyone in this forum really expected more....

According to this list:

http://developer.motorola.com/products/software/?utm_campaign=xoomsoftware&utm_medium=motorolacom&utm_source=supportforums&utm_term=unlockboard

the german Xooms have T-mobile custom firmware. Your firmware is different from everybody elses. And given that the target group is significantly smaller than for the standard euro version, logic follows that your firmware will arrive later than the standard euro firmware.

PS: By mistake I got a T-mobile device but I changed it to a euro device by putting the euro firmware on (from the above page). Everything worked out fine.

@Matt

You already gave us a date 9th of August. Are you saying that our update is not coming today. Which is in the next two hours.

I just learned that the XOOM I bought from Amazon and use here in Austria is a T-Mobile device.

Why on earth do you create that much artificial fragmentation?

Sorry - but just not happy!

As far as they (T-Mob) told me, this device is regular, non-branded EU device.

I bought it without any SIM / Contract so this is what I expect.

Futhermore there is no branding or whatever difference to other XOOMs I know (and I know some more of them).

The firmware is standard EU.

And if Moto tells us: roll-out for ALL EU, I expect ALL EU including Germany AND T-Mob!

But it would great if can tell me which ROM you used and how you flashed it?

-> this one?

Build H.6.1-38-1 for Retail Europe

Thanks for help!

What is the difference between the build for T-Mobile Germany and the build for Retail Europe except the missing language packs?

I do think we could be better off with the German T-Mobile version since Google might enable a few things (Books and Movie Store) for Germany earlier than for the rest.

@Matt

Is there a list of differences between versions?

Since I supposedly did not buy a Non-US, Non-Europe, Non-Germany - German T-Mobile XOOM but a worldwide GED XOOM, I think I have a right to actually know what I’ve got.

Do I void warranty when flashing to the software intended for my region?

BTW: Having to wait for a specific date was much better than waiting for "soon" and I hate not to know why I'm actually waiting.

I do have an update on Germany, after all.

Due to country-specific requirements it's sometimes not possible to release updates everywhere at the same time. In Germany we are completing a final testing phase; once this is finished, we'll release the update and let you know on the update thread on this site.

I know it's not a release date, but we are in the final stretch.

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

The movies and book service is not enabled outside US due to legal issues with content provider). Google filters IPs to determine the country (if you ever traveled with your Xoom you might have noticed, the tha Apps of Android market are dusplayed kn local currency). You can not access movies as long you are not in the US.

https://market.android.com/movies

Try it on your PC then you will see that Android version can not help .

Matt, when will I be able to use the link functionality of the support forum editor?

When will I be able to paste in the editor???

Its almost sarcasm that th support forum has one of the editors that work worse with GED 3.2.

Since writing in the train is one of the main reasons I bought the Xoom for, the limitations in text editing are the biggest withdraw (and my biggest fail caulculation) regarding the Xoom.

I'll search for a appropriate post to adress this...
