 I own a wifi Xoom that has NOT been rooted or changed in any way. I received my pre-ordered Xoom thru Best Buy the first day it hit the market. I have NOT received the upgrade. I called tech support today and they said it is being tested and I would be notified when it is available to me. It sounded like she was reading from the Motorola script that they have posted already which is vague and evasive.



 @NormW,


That information is obviously incorrect, all Xoom WiFi tablets should have been updated by now. Please check your build# as gmanapps outlined above and send me a PM (Private Message) with all your details and I will ask Motorola to check into it.


I assume that you have already checked for pending updates in the Settings?

@sonny,


I've got a Xoom 4G/LTE, so I am in the same boat. I don't think the Current Phase for our device has any dates associated with it. The Development phases span Q2 & Q3, but that doesn't mean that our tablet won't land in Q3 as well. I know there are some additional challenges with Verizon and the 3G/4G radios, so I think we will need to see what that means to our dates.

 Completely no way to confirm this but I read on another forum (Xoom specific) that someone was talking with Verizon support in the past day and they (the Verizon support rep) had a note that 3G/4G Xooms "might" be getting ICS around 2/24. First post to say that and I'll also say that I'm not holding my breath. I'm not in a terrible hurry myself though. I'd prefer it to be well checked and as free of bugs as possible. I do very much want some ICS though.


Edit to add - lol - dig the official forums. It told me 47 people will be emailed.

I doubt we'll see it this week. They'll most likely do a soak test first and that seems to get leaked on the various fourms as soon as the email goes out to the participants which is about 1-2 weeks before the soak test starts. Then, it seems to be about another week before it is rolled out to the general public. 


 


FWIW the Transformer Prime ICS was pushed again, now until March.

Has anyone tried installing ICS on the Xoom LTE using the version available from XDA Developers?


http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1484770


The posted comments are pretty positive and the installation directions do not appear to be very intimidating.

Best bet would be to try the unlocked xoom forum as this forum seems mostly for stock software issues.


That's certainly an option with the xoom being a GED tablet. XDA is a terrific resource so if the consensus is good, you probably won't have any problems. You can always get the files from Motorola and reload the stock ROM. I'm planning on trying ICS on my D3 when CM9 goes into beta. There's some alpha versions floating around now but I'll wait for beta.


Looking forward to the xoom upgrade, with HC does it everything I need so waiting isn't a problem. I'm planning on looking at the newer high resolution tablets when they're released ~June anyway so another three months with HC isn't a big deal.
