Android Jelly Bean Update Rolling Out To The Motorola Xoom (Wifi)

Eric McBride

With Android 4.1 updates slowly starting to roll out for the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, the only Google experience device that hasn’t seen some JB love yet is the Motorola Xoom, which has left owners of the tablet anxiously waiting. But it seems the wait may be coming to an end, as Google has now begun rolling out the Android 4.1 update for the Motorola Xoom.

A changelog for the update was recently posted, and on Tuesday users already began seeing the update appear on their tablets. The update (for the wifi version ONLY) is the same build version that the Nexus 7 recently received, and should bring Xoom tablets to build version 4.1.1 JRO03D.

For those who don’t wish to wait, there are reports that some people have been successful in manually downloading and installing the update, but I would really encourage you guys to wait for the official update, as many who attempted the manual update did run into issues. 

So with the Motorola Xoom, Nexus S, and Galaxy Nexus all currently receiving updates to Android 4.1, the question remains as to when non Google experience devices will begin receiving the update (along with Verizon devices). Hopefully, we won’t have to wait that long to find out.

Let us know when you receive the update for your Xoom, and let us know how you like Jelly Bean!

    So far so good. I liked the ICS text better. Google Now is interesting. I wish I had it on my phone as I don't take my Xoom everywhere with me. (Gotta figure out a way to convince my wife to get a Nexus 7 :-) )

    I had to give the Xoom a bit of a nudge to push the OTA. Over at XDA somebody suggested force closing Google Services Framework then clearing its cache. After doing this you need to check for the Update manually. It took about cycles of this before it worked but my jaw dropped when it did.

    My next move is to start fresh. I'm going to back everything up and do a system restore. I want the smoothest experience possible until Google puts out a Nexus 10.

    A full wipe is VERY important when moving between versions. I would suggest a factory reset, and if you're rooted, wipe cache, dalvic, and system, and then install it. I did this on my Prime and JB works great so far.

    As far as having it on your phone, which phone do you have? There's lots of great JB ROMS at XDA for phones, especially if you have a Galaxy Nexus.

    Wasn't rooted. Just did a factory reset though.

    I have the Bionic. I'm running ICS .2233. I want to update it to .232 this weekend.

    Basically waiting for a stable JB ROM for the RAZR and somebody will port that over to the Bionic since they are so similar.

    Just downloaded the OTA update. Guess I'll try the full wipe approach because the default install broke K9 and zynga, plus gallery viewer doesn't allow the swipe between pix when I bring up a file list ... first impression...big fail.

    You should definitely full wipe bro. Makes a big difference.
