Android 3.2 Update for XOOM Will Finally Add SD Card Support to U.S. XOOMs

Yep, the Motorola XOOM Android 3.2 update that we just showed you the first pictures of, will indeed enable SD card support.  It’s about damn time, right?  Apologies for the blurry picture, but you can clearly see that there is new option under phone storage for “SD Card.”

Early word would suggest that this is only rolling out to WiFi XOOMs and not the Verizon 3G version, but we’re still waiting for confirmation on that.  We should point out that it wouldn’t surprise us to see the WiFi version receive it first, since the Euro versions all had SD support after the 3.1 update.

Definitely developing…

Cheers again Michael M.!

    Hello, Xoom Folks. I updated my “WIFI only” Motorola Xoom to 3.2 and am using a Micro SD card
    (32GB) in the “now” functioning slot. Moreover,  I tested file
    transferring via a SD card adapter, USB cable and WIFI (using a Cisco
    Wireless Router) and the performance is off the charts. Honeycomb recognizes the Micro SD disk with no issues. 
    As part of my data flow test, I transferred a 1080p HD movie (MP4) and
    several hundred songs (MP3) onto the mounted disk. All media plays
    perfectly.  When Motorola says it’s coming, once they build it, it will come!  Note to file: The Class 6, 32GB Kingston Micro SD disk is from Taiwan.

    I have a Xoom with 3G/4G capability, but I don’t have a contract for their use. Does this categorize me as having a wi-fi only Xoom?

  • Kimshumake

    Just got the update. Now what……..

    • TJRB

      I got the update to, but see no option to mount an SD card … you?

  • TJRB

    I received the 3.2 update and can confirm that there is NO MicroSD support!

    •  Which device is this for, 3G or WiFi?

      • Anonymous

        It works on both.

  • Peter Lambardi

    I’m just curious about something with this. If the Xoom has recieved an update for SD card support then that would obviously mean the Xoom has had an SD card slot since it was built and released. so why didn’t they just release SD card support the day of release instead of having a useless slot on the device?

    Here is your new car sir. 1) the Radio and the A/C do not work yet. Sometime in the future we will figure out how to make them work, but pay in full now please.

      • Good for you. Still a moronic idea from both the manufacturer and the customer.

        • Mario Lo

          It was the only Honeycomb tablet at the time.  When the next HC tablet came out, we got the Flash update.  Now that the market is full of HC tabs, we get the Google implemented SD update.

          Took a while? Yes.  But not having any manufacturer skin added on top of HC >*….anyday.

        • storm35x

          No the moronic idea would be naming your kid Rocko, LOL!!

          • Or Storm35x Moron. Musta been sniffin gas when you squirted out.

        • Tom Cullen

          If the customer buys it an is happy then i really don’t see how its a moronic idea. the android platofrm is a work in progress, and as i said when you’re an early adopter you acknowledge that there are kinks/features to be worked on. i got the wifi only so the 4g not coming standard was moot fort me, and it had plenty of internal storage to hold off on using an sdcard for a little while. 

          this customer is not a moron, he knows exactly what he got for his money and he’s been very happy with the product. 

          thanks for your sophomoric opinion though!

    I think I was one of the last people to get the 3.1 update so I won’t be holding my breath on this one. One daily update check should suffice. Glad they added that option in with the last update, the date changing trick was a pain.

    Any word on weather this is going to work on rooted wifi xoom? I finally got mine stable after the first rom messed up everything….

    • I think the 3.1 update was an issue for rooted Xooms so this one may be as well. The best chance to avoid bricking your Xoom is to see what solution XDA comes up with and use that.

    Nice!  Now Asus and Acer owners will know what real storage card support looks like.

  • Finally!

  • Mrhug3

    I’ll believe it when I see it.

  • I got the update and I got a 3g xoom 

    • Booboolala2000

      sad to say 3g isn’t it? to me it’s the one thing holding this tablet back. VZW’s 3g speeds are horrendous right now. Can’t wait for LTE radios, it’ll fly.

  • what SD card do you recommend for the Xoom?

    might have to fork over more $$

  • yeah we all knew this was coming with this update… sweet now everyone can stop complaining holy jesus….

  • Mr.Joe

    and it only took it like 6 months?

    Hows this going to affect my rooted overclocked xoom?

      It’ll likely not work.  But thats the benefit to messing about with your tablet’s security – everything is a pain in the ass from that point on.

  • A correction for this article, the European update hasn’t rolled out yet (China and Japan got the update, Australia started but has been paused due to issues – Nowhere in Europe has received the update).

    I’m totally disgusted by the terrible customer service from Motorola, we haven’t received any updates and there are several irritating issues, where as their American customers have been the first to receive both 3.1 and 3.2!

    Is the wifi version a GED too?  If not, could this just be the same hack that moto used to get the SD card working on the non-US Xooms?

    Will us Verizon Xoom owners still be shafted?

  • Gfacekilla

    Why in the world would Verizon/Motorola not release it for the Xoom 3G? Is it because for the 3G you have to upgrade and get the 4G also? Let’s hope not!!

  • Chuck Phillips

    Still waiting to see it with my own eyes before rushing out to Amazon to buy an SD card. Regular SD, not micro, correct?

    • Anonymous

      No.  Its a micro.  If you actually had a Xoom you’d know this.

      • Lol, that’s what I was thinking.  Sounds like he might need to rush out to Amazon and purchase a Xoom before purchasing that card 😛

        • Chuck Phillips

          I actualy have a Xoom smartass. I havent rooted it and installed the Tiamat kernel, and since I dont have SD card support stock, I havent felt the need to go out and purchase an SD card. The smugness and smartassery around here is beginning to remind me of those turtle neck wearing other guys.
