  2. yes your right but i guess not activating the sd card has left me with a bad taste. Such an easy advantage over the ipad 2 and i cannot believe they wont give it to us

    Some quick things about the update. Web browsing is definitely snappier. Flash runs ALOT better. Getting no lag from flash at all. Overall system speed seems quicker as well. Not getting force closes on websites that used to force close. Widget resizing is sweet. The gmail and calendar widgets are much better now. Will post more a little later when I have more time to play with it. Going to try a few USB devices and see how host works.

    Were the two that got the update using the 3g connection when it came through or were they on wifi at the time? I haven't gotten it yet, have 3g plan but connected to wifi at the moment

    I still haven't received an update notification.I'm on a xoom attached to a 3g plan, have rebooted and everything. Is Verizon doing a gradual rollout? I should also note that when I try to look for system updates via settings, it says it last checked at 12:10pm. I there a trick to force it to look again?

    I have placed Pete's update file on the root of my "SD card" with astro and rebooted hoping that it would see it there,but no luck. Update status still says last checked 11:55AM this morning.

    As far as I can tell it checks every time you reboot. Each time I check it says the exact time as my last reboot.

    Nope, I've rebooted 3-4 times today and it still has the first time listed. I think it checks once a day.

    If you want to force it to check for an update all you have to do is change the date in the time/date settings. Turn off Network Time if you have it turned on. Change the date to like next week (any day except for the current day). Then check the update status thing again and it will reflect the time you change the date. Change back to network time again and it will again check.

    As I mentioned earlier in the post. I would expect a manual download of the .zip file to come shortly. Perhaps by tomorrow afternoon. I actually have the file already just not exactly sure how to flash it.

    Interesting indeed. My Xooms all say that the last check is always the time of my last reboot. I just rebooted at 11pm and that's what it says for its last update check.

    Has this fixed the lag when scrolling between homescreens in portrait mode?

    That might just be the stupidest bug i've ever seen...

    google's bug tracker said it would be fixed in an upcoming release

    Yup Moto's change log says 3.1 has full support for Flash Player 10.2. Very Nice.

    I also really like how you now can use Bluetooth headsets with Google Talk.

    I wouldn't mind rooting, as I rooted my Incredible. I am a little worried about the 4G upgrade. Does anybody know how rooting will impact the 4g upgrade (if we ever get the upgrade)?

    The idea I think that Motorola had was to roll out the update in waves throughout the week and that's why some of us aren't seeing anything as of yet. I have a 3g and have been checking all day to see if I could grab it with no luck so far. Motorola states on its site that the wifi only tablets will be getting the update in the next coming weeks.

    Which is weird because some XDA users say they have it. Someone was kind enough to post the update for the 3g and for the WiFi only. They've even started updating kernels.
