Motorola XOOM Android 3.1 Updates Arriving, First Pics!

Well look at that – the first pics of the Motorola XOOM running Android 3.1.  The update is indeed rolling out now and as expected, brings goodies like resizable widgets which you can see one one of our readers’ devices just after the jump.    

Cheers @Fade2Black318!

     Are there people on 3G who still haven’t received their update yet??? Am I the only one???

    Don’t feel left out. I’m not getting it on a unrooted (locked) Xoom 3G/WiFi

    I’ve got a 3G Verizon Xoom and I still don’t have the 3.1 upgrade as of this morning! WTF it shouldn’t take this long to roll out this upgrade, Verizon only sold about 156 Xooms!

    i don’t know what vzw method of releasing this is but i was hoping i would have it first since i was one of the first to get it. i was actually first person at the vzw and first to complete the sale. should count for something.

    I get my XOOM tomorrow. Do you think it will come with the update?

    I have a 3G Xoom, am going into SETTINGS>ABOUT TABLET>SYSTEM UPDATES. Says:Your system is currently up to dateLast checked for update at 9:01am.There is not a button to “check now” and I tried the reset by pressing POWER+VOL-UP, it rebooted, still has the 9:01am update check.Anyone know another way to get it to check?

      You can manually change your time to sometime earlier than reset it to manual

    Did it fix any of the instability issues? Or the browser opening mobile pages? Or market in perpetual landscape mode?

    • Hamholla

      Supposedly it fixes the browser mobile page problem. I’m sure it tweaks a few bugs. I won’t see it till later though BC I’m chillin with a wifi

      How do you get into the bootloader and start the install?

  • angermeans

    I was really hoping for SD card support I am really starting to wonder I mean I hate to put the tinfoil hat on so early and so far I have been patient but when you don’t release the source and then ignore enabling SD card support that kind of makes me wonder. It can’t be that hard I am sure they have abunch of engineers. I mean some great devs at xda have enabled it.

    What about 3g xooms that don’t use Verizon’s service. Will I have to wait or do I need 3g service to get it

    • Mlazovjp

      That’s what I want to know. I have 3G version using only WiFi.

      • Nicksmith1953

        I need to know this too! I guess were fucked for being rebellious AND impatient! Lol!

        • Anonymous

          I confirmed with Verizon Wireless today, that all official Verizon Wireless Xooms will get update, even without 3g. I’m in the same boat too. Quick way to have device check for update is to stop the google service, reboot, and Xoom will check for update.

  • viewthis66

    my apologies for not knowing but why do i keep reading about the Wi-Fi Xoom not getting the update along with the 3G+Wi-Fi version. Honeycomb is Honeycomb. Its a software update. why would there be a difference in time frame for receiving the update if you have the Wi-Fi only version?

    • Timmah

      Radios, coding, apps, etc. Its not as simple as you think it is.

      • viewthis66

        where is it specified on Verizon’s site that the wifi only xoom will get the update after the 3g/4g version?

        • http://twitter.com/lennyd43 Why So Serious?

          Verizon is not responsible for wifi Xoom, Motorola is

    I will have to wait for the update.zip for rooted XOOM’s. If you see that somewhere drop us all a line DL guys? ;)

    Over at XDA bigrushdog has the update as an update.zip for rooted 3G users (I STRESS: 3G USERS!!!).
    Loving the Ichigo/Bleach wallpaper BTW.

      Thanks I’m a big fan lol

  • Lostrealities

    Hard reset your device to get the update. Power button + Volume Up

    • http://twitter.com/mickmel mickmel

      That doesn’t force a check, though I wish it did.

      • Lostrealities

        Worked for me.

        • Gregorydhowe

          The hard reset forces a check, but that doesn’t mean that Verizon has releases the update for your individual device yet.

        Set date change to manual > change the date one month ahead > go back to home > check about tablet and date should be updated > repeat to your OCD’s content for the next week or two

          Good tip, thanks! No luck yet, though…

  • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 Tony Garza

    i think wi-fi only devices will see the update in a few weeks

  • Chuckstacey

    SOOOO ready for this on mine! Come on. Update dang it.

  • http://twitter.com/mutinymanx Tyler Spurgeon

    Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!

  • bffhusker

    Now, Verizon, release that Keyboard Folio!

    Come on, what about us with the WiFi XOOM also…… do we not exist?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LEP2PO6BC524BBC4K5CRPFOJFY josh

      I know google had mentioned that info would be given out on the update process. Maybe Motorola will be in charge of updating the wifi only xooms?

      • Xoomnation

        I think what they are doing is minimizing the loads on their servers by putting these updates out in Bursts, in an effort at not crashing their servers. Once the updates for the 3G has completed to a certain level then the pushes for the WiFi will commence. I would give it about three days to a week…

    • Lorin

       I have the wifi only version and got the update on May 12.

  • Kinacid

    Lets see what devices you can plug into the xoom now, what works and what doesnt. Please!

    Glad to see Google add resizable widgets to the stock launcher.
