Verizon: Motorola XOOM 4G ICS Update Starts June 4

Verizon confirmed this afternoon that the Motorola XOOM will receive Ice Cream Sandwich starting June 4. The update should come directly from Google as it is a “lead” device for Android, but Big Red has gone ahead and announced its arrival. To see the full changelog, check out this post.

    ICS was released last year, milenia in terms of versions. I feel google has put android on the back burner. We’ll get this in a week, there have been 0 confirmations today

    What’s a Xoom? (rhetorical)

  • daniel.archibald33

    I pride myself as being the first consumer to upgrade my xoom to 4GLTE. I was sent a special letter from Motorola as well as an HD dock and a new Bluetooth keyboard for being the first. I’m stoked for ICS

      what an acomplishment, generations will speak of this glorious event

  • Gustavo Bruno

    I have the Xoom I did the upgrade to 4g, the thing is that I decided to cut the data service last month and just use it with wifi. will I still get the update? (shrugs)

    • Jwhap

      yeah. you don’t need data service to get an update.

  • vyruz

    and i JUST put cm9 on mine after waiting forever for it to be official

  • Karena

    I have the Zoom wi-fi and I have yet to receive an ics update. What do I do because I feel like I’m missing out.

    • droid 920

      xoom wifi got their update way back on 1/8/2012

  • Hollis

    How about the Xoom FE? Any updates on when ICS will be out for it? It was Q2 per Moto but they supposedly pushed it back to Q3??

  • LionStone

    Off-Topic: Anybody seen the DROID Inc4G ?

  • yellowcanary73

    Dont forget they will only be doing ten at a time. Like their doing the G/N

    Why can’t they give such a firm date to the GNex owners they’ve been dicking over for the past couple months?

    • michael arazan

      News Update, Huge push friday night in the Nexus ota update many reporting receiving the update. I too also got the update at 1150 pm june first, ac and other forums confirming the huge push tonight

  • Michael_NM

    “Lead” device huh? Sometimes it feels like a hunk of “lead” with Honeycomb still bogging it down. It sure is nice of VZW to let Google update it so promptly. :P

  • Phil

    I say the XOOM, since Verizon likes sticking it to G-Nex Owners

  • edmicman

    So who’s gonna get 4.0.4 first, XOOM on June 4 or the full lot of GNex owners?

    • http://twitter.com/strifejester Justin Ellenbecker

      I am hoping when I get home there is a notification waiting on my XOOM since I am in the soak test. Then they usually put out a survey monday morning and if all is well then the rollout should start. I already updated my GNex manually would have done the same with the xoom if there was a leak before the roll out.

      • Michael_NM

        I’m in the soak test too, but have yet to receive the update…

  • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

    Hallelujah, about dang time!!!

  • Scott

    If it is the same IMM76K build, I wonder it it means that this date applies to GNex owners as well.

  • randompsychology

    If one didn’t ship out their XOOM for the 4G upgrade, will this update still apply?

    • Jigga_Z

      Yup! Update happens regardless of 3G or LTE status.

    • Chris Gustafson

      Moto and Verizon seem to be treating the MZ600 and MZ602 as one device again. So you should be good.

      • http://twitter.com/strifejester Justin Ellenbecker

        Chris is probably right but I had heard that if you didn’t update your XOOM that you would not get future updates but AFAIK they are both running identical software versions so there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to get the same update.

          Where did you hear this from? I thought it was confirmed that it didn’t matter if you had a 3G or 4G chip in it?

        • http://twitter.com/standardsdt Dave Tarantula

          It’s been officially confirmed! :-)

          Both Devices are being upgraded according to VZWSupport.
