Jelly Bean OTA update for WiFi Motorola Xoom now available, soak testers get it early

by: Bams SadewoJuly 25, 2012


Getting jealous seeing those jolly jelly beans on the Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus S?

The official Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the Motorola Xoom will be rolled out soon, but you can try your luck by downloading and installing the OTA file yourself, which has been uploaded by Google on its website.

Manually flashing the Jelly Bean OTA file on your Motorola Xoom will be quite a challenge though, because the file is meant only for “soak testers” and it may still contain bugs and the likes. Those who tried (and failed) have reported a “space issues” error while trying to install the update.

But if you’re brave enough and up for [...]

Motorola Xoom Jelly Bean update confirmed, release date still unavailable

by: Chris SmithJuly 24, 2012

Following the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Nexus S smartphones that have already received their Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update – well, at least some versions – the third device that’s going to officially run the latest Android OS will soon get it, not counting the Nexus 7 that ships with Jelly Bean on board.

Naturally, it’s the Xoom Wi-Fi tablet, and it looks like Motorola has already confirmed that U.S. Xoom owners will get Jelly Bean in the very near future, without revealing roll-out dates yet. In fact, certain Xoom buyers will have access to a soak test for Jelly Bean, which will most likely be followed by the Android 4.1.1 [...]

Many rumors, very few confirmations. What devices will get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?

by: AdrianJuly 21, 2012

Almost a month has passed after the formal introduction of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The new operating system’s source code has itself been released a couple of weeks back, so it’s only natural for users to expect official Jelly Bean updates to be flowing, right?

However, as recent history has sadly shown us, the road from an OS update becoming open source to it actually hitting the most popular devices around is a very bumpy one. So it’s no wonder that we still (officially) know very little about the Jelly Bean upgrade timeframes.

The only three devices that are already running Android 4.1 are the unlocked Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 7 tablet, and now the Nexus S. [...]

Jelly Bean OS nightlies available for Motorola Xoom 4G and WiFi versions

by: Ankit BanerjeeJuly 18, 2012

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS has everyone excited and we can’t wait to get it for our devices! Unfortunately, OEMs and network carriers don’t have the best track record with OS update rollouts, as a lot of users are still waiting for an official upgrade to ICS. Although the list of devices that will eventually receive JB is slowly growing, the question of “when” is still unanswered. This is where we look to custom ROMs for our Jelly Bean fix.

With the release of the Android 4.1.1 source code, third-party developers have been hard at work to get functional Jelly Bean custom ROMs up and running. [...]

Motorola Xoom Jelly Bean update coming soon, soak test invitations suggest

by: Chris SmithJuly 15, 2012

In case you haven’t heard, the first devices to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean following the launch of the Nexus 7 tablet are those Android handsets and tablets that run a vanilla Android build, one the Google can update itself without the help of device manufacturers and carriers. These devices include two smartphones and a tablet: the Samsung Nexus S, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola Xoom.

And it so happens that Android users who are members of the Motorola Feedback Network and own the Wi-Fi version of the original Xoom have received invitations for a software test. The most logical conclusion is that we’re looking at the Jelly Bean soak test, although neither [...]

Motorola Xoom finally getting Android 4.0 ICS in Europe, only in “select markets” for the time being

by: AdrianJune 29, 2012

A more than decent tablet at the time of its release, back in May 2011, the Motorola Xoom managed to enrage its adopters with the incredibly slow Android ICS rollout. While the Wi-Fi only version in the US got its much awaited software leap in January, the stateside 3G model, as well as pretty much all of the tablet’s versions outside the States, were left out of the update mix.

Fast forward half a year later and the frustration of Xoom users has truly reached new heights. And while many of you probably stopped hoping for (the official) ICS months back, Motorola is now coming forward with an announcement that should bring a smile to a few faces.

The ICS upgrade [...]

Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean OTA update available for download, with a twist

by: Chris SmithJune 28, 2012

Android fans know by now that Google unveiled yesterday Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it’s next-gen mobile operating system that’s already found on board of the Google Nexus 7, its first tablet that was also launched yesterday.

Google said that Jelly Bean will be available to download as an over-the-air (OTA) update in July, but only a few selected devices including the Samung Nexus S, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola Xoom tablet will get it initially.

Of course, that’s not really surprising considering that it’s not Google that handles software updates for the vast majority of Android devices out there. It’s up to Android device [...]

Verizon to roll out ICS upgrade for Motorola Xoom today

by: Bams SadewoJune 4, 2012

It was only a few days ago we reported that Verizon’s Motorola Xoom is due for some Ice Cream Sandwich treat, now it looks like the update is happening real soon. Verizon has announced that the Android 4.0.4 upgrade for its Xoom tablet will be rolled out starting today.

Along with the standard features of Ice Cream Sandwich, you can expect additional device enhancements and fixes. There’s a new customizable launch bar that lets you drag apps, shortcuts and folders for easy access from any home screen, while the new notification pop up box allows for an easier viewing of all inboxes and notifications. Worried about data usage on your slate? There’s now a comprehensive [...]

Verizon Motorola Xoom getting Ice Cream Sandwich update soon?

by: Chris SmithMay 31, 2012

One of the difficulties Android has been facing over the years, especially when compared to the competition, is OS fragmentation. It’s no secret that Android device makers and especially mobile operators are rather slow at updating some of yesterday’s high-end devices to the latest Android OS version available from Google. Such is the case with the Motorola Xoom – one of the first Android tablets that tried to challenge the iPad last year – which is yet to receive its proper Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich update.

However, we have good news for Verizon Xoom owners, as the ICS update may be closer than you think, although an actual [...]

Android 4.0.4 OTA coming to (some) Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S models, plus the Xoom

by: AdrianMarch 29, 2012

Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, and Motorola Xoom users have all been waiting for Android 4.0.4 updates for a while, but now they can finally (prepare to) rejoice. Yes, I said prepare to rejoice, because, for the time being, only a handful of these devices have receive the update to the latest flavor of Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The OTA (0ver-the-air) updates reportedly started yesterday, but for some reason, they have only hit select models until now, as far as we know. The UMTS/GSM Nexus S and the HSPA+ variant of the Galaxy Nexus should have been all updated by now, so if you haven’t checked your handheld lately, it might have a very pleasant surprise in store for [...]
