Default ICS discussion of OTA update (Includes discussion of OTA update 4.04 IML77)

Just pushed to my stock wifi xoom. When I turned it on, it said an update was ready. Reboot took about three minutes and viola. Going to play with it now.

p. s. AF app works!

Mine just updated Woke up and had a message to install latest update. I am in Southern California. What's funny is I bought the Motorola Camera Kit yesterday from Amazon and was going to put ICS on Today.

Edit: It's pretty FAST and SNAPPY. No more Lag going between pages. Looks cooler so far. Had to reinstall Netflix to get it to work. Apps move ALOT FASTER when you grab and move them. They move really smoothly now with NO Choppiness. Still CAN'T Delete Files from SD Card (I was using File Manager HD & SDCARDXD;( NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS!!!!!!! This SUCKS. Still CAN'T use my SD Card Internally. Have to use my PC to remove Files, Movies etc. etc. STILL. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

How about those of us that paid for the 4G variant... you'd think that because we paid the most we'd be the top priority on this matter. Disappointed in how Moto/Google/Verizon handled this one from day 1.

Out of curiosity, has anyone checked to see if the version number of the released update has changed? I believe the build number on the SOAK release was IML77. Does the production release have the same build number?

Motorola alternates their release schedule. The last release update went to Xoom 4G owners first... as will the next (if there is a next). Their approach indicates that they are trying to be fair to ALL Xoom owners, not just those who paid more for their tablets.

Apparently I guess they are releasing the SOAK image to the masses...

I wonder if this means that any bugs found during the SOAK will be addressed in a future update?

I'd rather wait to make sure of no bugs. However, the Verizon edition comes from Verizon not Motorola. Motorola releases to verizon then Verizon releases to the public. Be Patient.

Got my update last night around 8 PM PST. My device is a WiFi only Xoom purchased from Costco on release day.

Also, I joined the Motorola thing, but didn't do it until last Friday when I heard they were emailing Motorola members that they might get early access. Not sure if it had an effect.

Got tired of waiting after the wifi ICS leaks began last week. Finally found one for the LTE and loaded it on early this morning. Works great although I haven't had the opportunity to try the 4G.

I got mine about an hour ago Xoom Wi-Fi only, in Alaska. Seems faster keyboard works better. Some of my apps don't like it at all but that is to be expected I guess.

Got the OTA update this morning when I woke up around 5:30am. Took about 8-10 minutes to do the whole install thing. In the brief time I have looked at it I can't say I see much if any difference. But one nice thing is the start up screen has changed from the honeycombs. I was so sick of looking at that. Presumably a bunch of ice cream sandwiches now although it just looks like a bunch of rectangles. I'm sure I'll be sick of those by Christmas too though.

Seems much smoother indeed after my update this morning. However, it did seem a bit bogged down in the beginning while fetching my gallery cache, email, gmail, pulse, etc. After that, it was very smooth sailing. Darn it, though, as I forgot to try the new keyboard before leaving for work.

Best part. Angry birds. I loved how they updated the applications. Wished they had done this when my Incredible got gingerbread. Maybe a note to HTC. What a great way to do business

yeah it was straight forward enough there was a moment where i thought i lost it but don't bother with rooting etc just unlock the bootloader and then apply the GED rom files from the motodev site and it should work a treat

Got my ICS OTA update this morning, Wifi only Xoom, Delaware (USA). Bought on release day, but don't know if that makes a difference. Haven't had time to play with it yet.

Yep.

I have a Canadian Xoom with a US GED image on it. Updated to ICS this evening, it's snappy and fast. Had to head out for a bit so I haven't played with it too much. Feels like a brand new tablet

Read about the update being rolled out at work this morning and was dying to get home and try it out.

All done now. WiFi Xoom - Maryland, USA

Notes:

- Movement between home screens is a lot better. There can still be a wee bit of choppiness, but on the whole, a huge improvement in my opinion.

- As mentioned above, moving shortcuts and widgets around is very smooth.

- I know the clock font has changed, but can't remember if the label fonts, etc. have; However, it all looks crisp and much clearer from first glance.

- Dislike the wall paper choices. There are two parts to this note:
+ The wallpaper choices provided are terrible. They seem to be grainy and of much smaller resolution.
+ We've still not tackled the issue of using our own wall papers. We still have to crop the picture which sucks.

That is it as of now. Finished my update about an hour ago so still messing about with it.

No Phase Beam Live Wallpaper (or any of the ones on GNex). Super annoying!

+1 on InterfaceLift. I use it a lot.

As far as I'm aware, the resolution on the device is 1280X800. Downloading and utilizing wallpapers at that size as well as others, seems to make no difference. I am still forced the crop the image so that the portrait and landscape images can be composed.

If by resolution you meant download a wallpaper of very high resolution after which the cropped area still remains sharp, I'll pass on that.

I want a landscape wallpaper in its entirety. Not a cropped part of it. As such anything I do download is always some abstract pattern which repeats itself and ultimately has no bearing on the final image.

I've used that multi-picture live wallpaper app before, but I hate it.

My WiFi Xoom is still on HC 3.2 but the US WiFi versions have begun to receive the official ICS via OTA a few days ago. According to Motorola the update will rollout to European versions within the coming weeks - no question of it imho. However, Motorola have not been exactly quick of the mark when it comes to looking after their European customers; they seem to favour their American bretherens. So, when we will really get ICS is anyones guess. Good tablet though!

Iam in the UK and was to impatient to wait so I unlocked my xoom and installed the US rom from moto dev. I then got a notification straight away and after a few updates Iam now running ICS without any problems :-)
Not sure on the state of the sd card though as I never used to use it... I hardly touch the 32gb I already have. Ill check it out though and post back and let you know

The other thing I'm not sure of since I haven't had the time to keep up with Android related news is whether we are supposed to have a dock or not.
