Whilst reading through info on this forum I found a link to Motodev and looked up my build number. Now the only update I have had is the OTA to go from 3.0.1 to 3.1. So basically I have a stock machine with OTA 3.1 update.
Imagine my surprise when I could not find any reference to my Build Number on the Motodev site.
As far as I can see it should be; Build Number H.6.2-24 Retail for Europe, but on checking with About Tablet on my Xoom I find that my
Build Number is H.6.4-24 ie NOT the correct number for Retail Europe.
The other information on the about tablet page is;
Firmware configuration Version; GAS_EMEA_UCAHUBLWFRTCOREEU_P010
Kernal version : 18.104.22.168-00004-g5de4d3d
What the heck does this mean?
I have the following questions;
1) Why is my Xoom, bought in the UK, got different software from the Motodev site software for retail Europe?
2) What differences are there in the two versions?
3) As there is no mention of the H.6.4-24 on Motodev have I got something other than standard?
4) Will this impact my ability to be upgraded OTA for things like 3.2 and 4.0 when it arrives?
5) have I spent £476 on an incorrect XOOM?
I guess this post is aimed at Matt/Trose as only they will be able to answer these questions.
Thanks in advance for your help
PS breaking news someone else has contacted this web site also with build Number H.6.4-20 for a machine they bought in Mexico!!!!! How the hell is that possible??

Sorry folks was going cross eyed with all the H.2.4.6.-20-24 etc
Line 7 should read
Build number is H.6.4-20 ie NOT the correct number for Retail Europe
Point 3 should read;
As there is no mention of the H.6.4-20 on MOTODEV have I got something other than standard??

After a great deal of searching on the net ( one of the benefits of being retired!) I found the following info which confirms that the recent update also changes the Motorola software to version H 6.4.20.
"The new software package will update Motorola Tablets to Software version 6.4.20 (22.214.171.124 in Germany). In addition to the Motorola software that will be updated, this release also updates the Google Android OS from ver 3.0 to 3.1."
