Good things come to those who wait. And for those who weren’t even expecting the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update to come so soon, it makes it just that much sweeter. After the OTA update to Android’s latest and greatest OS was sent out to “soak testers” two days ago, the software update is now heading to all owners of the WiFi Motorola Xoom.

Understandably, you may not see the Android 4.1.1 update notification right away on your Motorola Xoom, as this thing tends to go in stages. If you’re getting impatient, you can use the same trick that was used by some folks to speed up getting the Jelly Bean update message. But a word of caution, please do it at your own risk.

Here’s what you have to do:

  • Go to Setting  > Apps > All > Google Services Framework
  • Then hit the Clear data button
  • Optional restart
  • Check manually for update

The method may require several tries before you hit the jackpot, but some are reporting good results and see the Android 4.1.1 update notification afterwards. If you don’t want to risk it, then it’s always better to wait it out. As for those who have received their update, welcome to Jelly Bean.
