    I'm not sure if it is an N7 thing or a Jelly bean thing, but when the power down menu appears you can long press "Power Off" and it will give you an option to reboot into safe mode. Just something to throw in the tool box.

    Does anyone who has gotten Jelly Bean notice any instability? During the last couple of days using ICS, I would have to reboot every 12-48 hours. Now that I have upgraded to JB, I have had MAJOR issues with stability. EG: when I open the notifications, the tablet will freeze, sometimes it will unfreeze, but most of the time it will reboot. Wi-Fi doesn't always reconnect (I always had problems with that, but now it's more common). Also, I don't think this is a problem, but I can't turn off animations, which adds to the stability issues.

    Is there anyway to go back to ICS until there is another update?

    Enhanced Notifications are very nice.

    I do wish we also had offline voice-to-text, though.

    the stock images are not for ics or jb they are for hc. you will have to let your xoom go through all the updates till you get to jb. If you still want them here they are. MOTODEV > Products > Device Software go down to your device and download them.
