XOOM WiFi Receiving Jelly Bean Android 4.1.1 Build JRO03H, Here is the Changelog (Updated)

From what we understand, the XOOM WiFi Jelly Bean update hasn’t started rolling out just yet, but once it does, it should be Android 4.1.1 build JRO03H. That is a slightly newer version of JB than even the Nexus 7 has, even though it was updated to JRO03D a little over a week ago. Other than numbers though, this newer build probably won’t contain anything that we haven’t already seen. The biggest difference here is that it is the first 10″ tablet to receive Jelly Bean. We finally get to see the full tablet experience of Android 4.1, rather than the portrait style that the Nexus 7 has.

Members of Motorola’s Feedback Network will receive the update first. Once they have had it for a few days and no one is hurt in the process, it should be made available to the public.

Update: Β There are reports floating around the internet that the update has been delayed. Actually, it was delayed some time last night and still hasn’t started. As soon as it does, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Cheers B!

  • I own is xoom and I’m so happy I do.

  • I heard rumors that Jelly Bean will no longer support Flash – like Apple IOS doesn’t. Is that true?

    Has anyone noticed that there isn’t an option of “OFFLINE VOICE TYPING” in the settings? Or am I just not seeing it?

    I hate Motorola for not upgrading the Xoom Family Edition and who would buy it from me if the bootloader is locked, we can’t even install custom roms, sucks that they do not care about a specific timeline on updates and some get it, some don’t after we spent the money.

    As per my experience, you may have to be unrooted (maybe temporarily unrooted) to apply the OTA. It failed on my 100% stock and rooted 4.0.4 OS. Update only took after unrooting.

    I had the update this morning waiting for me…

  • speedyr6

    Was delayed, it’s actually made it’s way out there on my Xoom and there is a post at xda-dev how I got the update and flashed with CWM. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1736634&page=20

    Turned on my XOOM at 8:00 pm central time. Seemed to be a little slow. Then I checked and Jelly Bean was being downloaded. I am now on a XOOM jelly bean. I love it. I think Google search will take some time to see how to get the most of it. But so far so good.

  • Mike

    Shouldn’t that be “speech-to-text?”

  • Tagbo Ekwueme-Okoli

    What about the Xoom Family Edition?

  • Can someone please upload the file?

    • no file to upload yet. keep an eye out for later this evening, or tomorrow.

  • rollout is delayed per those with access to private community in MFN.

  • AAAAWW YEAH!! This was a great investment, buying the Xoom WiFi

  • rob

    Any reason I should go back to stock, from the eos nightlies, and get this?

  • newcomb2

    Loving my Xoom!! Cannot wait to get the sweet taste of Jelly bean!!!

  • Sweet that means only 6 months until the LTE model sees it.

    T.L.D.R? Mainly…is it going to be overlayed?

  • MrEnglish

    My Xoom looks good on my friend’s desktop, where it has been since i dumped the POS, I’m sure he’s going to run it in really well that my Gnex won’t get JB faster than his free Xoom. Oh well, c’est la vie.

    • Asuriyan

      That’s what you get for advertising your jealousy on a public message board. πŸ™‚

      • MrEnglish

        Jealousy is a bit of an overstatement, its just a toy, like my other toys.

  • Ardiac

    No Google Now? I was kinda looking forward to it on my tablet… πŸ™
    Unless I missed it, I didn’t see that as being added.

    • NexusPhan69

      I think there is. Its labeled as a new look for search.

      • Ardiac

        Ahh good point thanks! I hope that’s it!

      • Seeing how they removed face unlock and a slew of live wallpapers from the Xoom, I wouldn’t be surprised…

  • teevirus

    The $499 question: how long will it take to get this update on the 3g/4g versions?

    • Casey Puyleart

      I’ve had it on my 4G Xoom using TeamEOS’s ROM since July 10th…

    • Btod

      My xyboard better get it before the xoom gets it.

      • Why would the XYBoard get it before the Xoom? The Xoom is updated by Google not Motorola

        • kixofmyg0t

          Is that why members of the Motorola feedback program are getting it?

          • Moto manages the Feedback network in concert with Google, trust me the Kernel and builds are all signed by Google and the Xoom is basically a Nexus device (that is why Google announces updates for it, like they did this year at I/O when they said the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and Xoom would be getting JB mid july)..

        • I believe he’s talking about the carrier versions. And riddle me this; If the Xoom is updated by Google, why is it getting a soak test? Google doesn’t do soak tests for updates. You’ve never heard of a soak test for the Nexus One, Nexus S, or Galaxy Nexus have you?

          • Yes they do actually, Google pushes it to a small number of handsets and then pauses, they have always done this they just dont say hey we are soaking….trust me Google updates the Wingray and Stingray variants of the Xoom, thats why Moto does not know why the update is paused right now (I am in the group as well)

          • ahhh, my bad then

          • The Xoom is supported in AOSP, it is basically a Nexus device, Google pushes the update, that’s all there is to it.

      • why the hell did you buy a xyboard in the first place?

      • Denny Bacon

        I got my update yesterday and I have the Xoom wifi

  • Every time I see something like this….it validates the money I spent the day the XOOM Wifi came out. 2 OS updates and still kickin. Love my XOOM!

    • adam

      same here. glad I got this over the galaxy tab. money well spent.

    • YuskoBravo

      Agreed! She may be the slow, fat, and heavy kid on the block, but boy does she get all of the attention!

      • Pedro

        That’s just ‘cuz she gives you whatever you want.
        I like her.

        • gtg465x

          Returned my Galaxy Tab 10.1 for this and I love it! That was over a year ago and this thing still gets all the updates before almost everyone!

    • Lactose_the_Intolerant

      Indeed! My little podunk backwater town only received TWO wifi Xoom’s on launch day… you better believe I was at the store 2 hours before they opened… love this thing then, love it now — it’s a beast!

    • Denny Bacon

      I absolutely agree with you Timothy. I had a lot of naysayers when I bought this. Frankly, I thought there would have been more buzz in regards to the Xoom.
      So, here it is a year and a half later and I’m now running Jelly Bean 4.1 and the rest are either still running Honeycomb or even Gingerbread still.
      How cool is that?
      Thank you Google for remembering me.

    I for one prefer the 7″ for factor, it’s easier to handle without fear of dropping while taking a dump. πŸ˜›

  • Chuicklez

    Im in the soak group, so I guess I need to remove BB and put a stock image on my Xoom. Where to find it, where to find it?

  • So the XOOM gets JB, but no hope of Asus giving JB to the OG Transformer?

    • TrollBallz

      GED FTW

      • Remember when the Prime got ICS before this “GED” device? Heh.

        • JoshGroff

          Sad but true.

    • They already announced the TF101, TF201, TF300 AND the TF700 are all getting it. Its the SL101 they don’t know about yet.

      • I havent seen them confirm for OG Transformer yet, only confirming for the TF201, TF300, and TF700

    • This is not Moto updating the Xoom it is Google, the Xoom is a Google Experience Device (basically it is the first Nexus tablet)

    • AlexKCMO

      The Xoom realistically should have it first. It’s a developer device and updated directly from Google. Asus however, since spreading themselves so thin has definitely lost their edge on updates. They are no longer the king of updates they once were, which is one thing I worried about when they started pumping out devices at a pace similar to Motorola.

      If Asus abandons the TF101 and doesn’t pick up the pace on updates across the spectrum, they’re going to be just like every other Android OEM. In my opinion, they need to buff their software dev department to remain as a top dog.

    Widgets work like magic? Really? What, are we apple now? How about something more technical sounding like automatic widget re-sizing.

        You have to admit you hate it anytime a company uses that word. Its childish.
        It is a great day for XOOM WiFi users tho.

        Shant…. lol
