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

I am aware that currently the books and movies application are blocked outside of the US. I am just not quite sure how does that technically. In my opinion they do not only rely on IP filtering.

But that is pure speculation.

What I suggest is that books and movies might be enabled for Germany before Austria and Switzerland. As seen in other online stores.

I do not know any other technique than IP filtering. For everything else you could find a work around to use it on other devices.

After a bit of googling: Yes they do use the IP to determine the location of andoid devices.

(And yes there are workarounds for all techniques)

If you know a free socks proxy in US, or a proxy that makes port forwarding on all ports, just send me a PM.. .

Many free US proxies are port 80 only and although I have not looked into it, I doubt that whole android market transactions are done on this port, only. -Have not looked into capabilities of anonymous serves or networks either.

So there might be infact some options, but not for the average dummy ;-).

Hey Matt, are we (with German Xooms) doomed to have the last tablets with 3.01 on the world? Yes, I know the Moto future under Google is the news of these days, but we really looking forward official 3.1 (or better 3.2 at once). Thank you.

http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Support/DE-DE/TABLETS/MZ601/Xoom3G_MR1_T-Mobile_Release_Notes_DE.pdf is telling me, that the update can already be pulled, but that's not true...the best way to make somebody feel like a fool...

Thank you Moto for another exciting week without an update here in Germany. Reading your intructions about pulling the update every day carefully, but nothing happens when i try to pull the update as described! Life goes on with a crashing stock browser, spontaneous reboots and a useless SD card slot...

I am checking update for several months more times every day. (I want to connect mouse / gamepad to Xoom and have more stable system, but there is something strange with German batch. I am prepared to flash panEuropean 3G ROM next week like others.)

Hi tomulinek,

yes, that's what also came into my mind. I already asked that in the unlock forum (without getting an answer): do you know the differences between the T-Mobile version and the Euro version?

Cheers, Thorsten

Yes, my motivation is to have Xoom 3G with original ROM (for experiments I have several smartphones), but with this update frequency I am faced to flash another ROM version. At forums, there is no clear answer, but most of people claim, that German version is similar, without more languages and software details. My only worry is about 3G module handler, byt I hope this is similar for whole Central+Western Europe. And, the last choice is to flash back to German ROM after the update will be here.

In US, there is better upgrade policy, but we can hope that Xoom 1 will be not forgiven even under Google.
