    I agree, definitely is a step backwards.

    Also just noticed you can't mute the audio any longer by tapping the speaker icon when you press the volume buttons. Why would you get rid of a feature like that?? :thinking:

    I think what he means is the star to add a bookmark does not show up in the address bar of the stock browser. And when you press the settings or book mark page there is no option to add a bookmark. Its the same on mine, I can find no way to add a boom mark with the stock browser. This only happens when you are using the quick controls. When you turn it off the star comes back in the address bar, weird huh?

    thanks for clarifying. I couldn't get it to work either and I kept getting the volume down or power off notification and I just tried again and it worked. That's a pretty cool feature.

    Others have reported something somewhat similar.

    While it will display images in the standard gallery app from Picasa (both preview and fuller size) if you try to share these with other apps (Gmail, Pixlr-o-matic and various others) it no longer works.

    Having images synced doesn't seem to help.

    When using the web browser the whole tablet will lock up for 10 seconds or so. Sometimes the Wait or Close screen will come up when it happens. Doesn't happen a lot but it rarely had this problem with honeycomb.

    VPN's apparently do not work. Not only the original L2TP/IPSEC but the new pure IPSEC ones as well. When will we see a maintenance release for ICS?

    What I meant I couldn't add to the bookmark widget. I know where to find the widget it was to add a new website. You do that by pressing the star next to the URL

    I muted my xoom and now I can't unmute it! Keyboard sounds and alarms are working fine but none of my games and music make any sounds.
    I've tried the settings and rebooting but still nothing :'(

    After the update Google Books is buggy. I had NO issues with it before. I could read a book and turn pages no problems. Now, if i am reading and turn the screen off then back on a couple inutes later either the page is frozen or i have this stupid rectangle box at the bottom of the page showing the chapter and page that doesnt go away. So, i shut it down and open it back up and then the same box comes up but fades out like its supposed to and pages turn fine. For a few turns then it freezes up again.

    Anyone else having problems with the screen lock? Mine seems to be having an issue sliding over to the unlock position. If I close the screen and try again it seems to work. The problem is intermittent and has happened 10-12 times in the last 2 days....

    I cannot add to my scrolling bookmark widget. I can bookmark a site but not add it to the scrolling widget.

    Wow this forum is dead! I noticed that you can not add the weather widget to the homescreen as well. On top of all the other issues reported here, every time I power my Xoom on I get a pop up saying that the android process has stopped. I get the pop up two or three times in a row. I don't attempt to open anything before the box comes up, it just happens every time I power it on.

    @ThexxPeach, I had the same issues yesterday for a while. It went away after an hour or so. I suspect that Google servers were having issues because I was able to browse all other sites.

    Is this a soak test for ICS? I am not showing any updates for my Xoom.

    I just got my Xoom and it is running 4.04

    I had one of the early honeycomb units and loved it.

    I hate the auto rotate feature. No big deal on the old Xoom. I just turned off the auto rotation in the settings menu. Problem solved.

    On this new unit the auto rotate check box seems to do nothing. The screen flips around regardless of if it is checked or not.

    Any solutions?

    Plus when the rotateion lock is in place is there a short cut to manually rotate the screen?

    One of the main reasons I bought my refurbished Xoom was to read PC Magazine online - might be a silly reason but it's the truth! ;) I wanted to see what a tablet was like and figured this was at least one specific thing I'd do with it so I'd be sure to use it.

    Anyway, since the ICS update, the Zinio reader used by PC Mag isn't working well for me at all and I've had to resort to reading on my pc instead. By chance, does anyone else read PC Mag online and can tell me if they're also having a problem using the reader now? I pull up a magazine but once I start trying to page through it, at some point it will stop on a page it's trying to load and I just get the graphic "loading" icon and it hangs up. I don't know if it's a Xoom problem, ICS problem, or only happening to me.

    Edit: 6/24/12 11:36 AM - I just found out there's actually a Zinio app so I'm going to try that to see if it resolves my issue. Previously I was reading using the browser by logging into the Zinio site.

    My contacts list, dialer, Favs,etc., (Droid Razor) went from white background with black letters to black background with white letters when I updated to ICS. It makes it difficult to see in bright sunlight. Anyone know how to revert back to the white background?
