Android 4.1.2 Update is Actually Rolling Out to the Motorola XOOM LTE, No Really

Got to be fake. No way is this actually happening. Android 4.1.2 for the Motorola XOOM LTE on Verizon is rolling out. Go get some.

Cheers CharlieX!

    My Xoom is still going strong……runs great and I use it constantly…..I bought it when it was first out.

  • Tom

    Update will not install Keeps failing. Xoom never rooted so I don’t know what the deal is…. Not happy

  • kat

    Love my xoom still going strong after 2.5 yrs

  • Goodwin O

    I got the update yesterday, and it’s like I have a brand, new tablet. Everything is more responsive. It’s perfect timing, as I just got Chromecast last week; Now I can have this as my media “remote control”.

    … but still nothing for the wifi xoom.

    • Lactose_the_Intolerant

      wait,what? wifi Xoom got this *MONTHS* ago… the LTE folks are finally just getting it.

  • Higher_Ground

    Not too bad. I checked for updates on my asus tf300 and sure enough, there was one waiting… I almost thought it might be 4.3, but then it would be insanely fast, even for asus.

    Hell hath frozen over.

    Any word on if the Wifi only version will get the update.

    • It won’t. The WiFi-only version got JZO54K last October, which is also 4.1.2. According to AOSP logs, the only differences between JZO54K (WiFi) and JZO54M (Verizon) are carrier-specific changes that have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the WiFi model. I’d be shocked if we saw JZO54M get rolled out to the WiFi model.

      At this stage, the WiFi Xoom saw its last update almost a year ago and it won’t see another one again unless there’s some major security flaw found that requires an immediate patch.

    Anyone know if the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE (verizon) is ever going to get some jelly bean love?

  • fauxshizzl

    I saw the update waiting for me this morning when I woke up. Although my Xoom now just sits in the HD dock acting as an alarm clock and pretty much nothing more, at least it is now a somewhat up to date alarm clock. Score.

  • Capt. Crunch

    I’m about to smash my Xoom Family Edition. Thanks Motorola…

  • Lisa Gierszewski

    Got it a few days ago, when they sent out the soak test. I wasn’t a part of the test. Hadn’t noticed really anything different.

  • riverjao

    I got 4.1.2 on my LTE Xoom this past Sunday.

    • riverjao

      But I also got 4.3 in my N7 last week as well.

  • Dane Carpenter

    Welcome to 2012 Xoom LTE users

  • akazerotime

    Oh XOOM. I been rocking EOS 197 that is android 4.2.2 for the longest time and the only issues is no Hotword support for Google Now because of it being a non-neon device. turn off Hotword and boom, you work. Sorry that you are so late to the party VZW, but glad you released this final build.
    On a side note, wouldn’t it be a nice gesture if the X tablet that Moto is developing be named Motorola Xoom X? (let the down votes start!)

    • Droid Ronin

      Moto is exiting the tablet business and focusing on phones for now. They have to get that right first.

    • JoshGroff

      I loved my Xoom LTE (Dev community saved it, same thing I say about many devices) until I passed it down and upgraded to the N7. I would love a new Xoom.

      • MichaelFranz

        agreed, however i think a 7-8 inch and 9-10 inch option should be available. I found the 10 inch to be to big but 7 might be to small. I think i am going to replace mine with a new N7 LTE though

        • JoshGroff

          I replaced my N7 with a gtab 8.9 when the screen shattered. It’s surprisingly snappy for an S3 powered tab. (Then again it’s running AOKP and I really only use it for video and minor gaming.)

  • Beamish

    It actually showed up on my Podcast player! I was shocked.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Go home Xoom… Time to start collecting that social security check.


    I have an iPad and the next tablet I will buy is going to be an iPad but I recommend downloading this update for your XOOM.

    No really, I do.

  • CharlieX

    My Xoom just needs to hold out until the new Nexus 10 arrives…..

    • steveliv

      i’m in the same boat. 🙂

  • I find it hilarious that the kernel was built in September 2012. Just goes to show that the Xoom isn’t a priority device for Verizon. haha I’m glad the Xoom LTE is finally getting the update. It’ll be the last one, barring some kind of major security patch.

    • moelsen8


      and who are you kidding, another one for a security patch? haha.

      • It happened with the OG Droid and original MyTouch 3G (both of which were Google-updated devices, Nexus before there was a Nexus, if you will). They both got a random update to Android 2.2.3 FRK76/FRK76C like 3 years after original release because there was a major flaw found that could allow you to exploit browser security certificates.

        So yes, it’s highly unlikely, but not impossible.

        • moelsen8

          i was being sarcastic, but yeah i do remember that one random droid update long after it looked to be forgotten by verizon.

  • teevirus

    Whats the over/ under on getting a 4.2 update on my Droid Razr HD this quarter? or 4.3 this year. It has almost identical specs and chipsets with Moto X

    • Paul Hansen

      about 100% if you’re running CM on it 😛

    • kixofmyg0t

      The RAZR HD does not have specs identical to X. Not unless you are just counting cores, even then you’re wrong.

      Oh wait, the displays are the same size. Not even the same type though.

  • Andrew

    The World’s First* 4G tablet will not go away

    • Justtyn Hutcheson

      It will now, since it was dropped from AOSP support.

      RIP Xoom, you were quite the interesting story to follow.

  • Droidzilla

    iPad killer!

    I’ll show myself out.

    • Epic.

    • MichaelFranz

      not hating….i still have one. I sold my ipad 1 for $50 less then i padi for it only to fork out $100 extra for this, and you know what its the longest i’ve owned 1 android device.

      I still use it at home, its rooted and unlocked and has CM10.1 on it, but its fairly useful.

      I’m sorry but this tablet paved the way for android, it was the first, first with honeycomb, first one google considered a google device until nexus came about

      • hoosiercub88

        I still have mine as well, it gets used never, mainly due to it being on the verge of dead. That Tegra2 didn’t hold up well over time, the thing is slow as molasses now.

        • jeesung

          TeamEOS. Snappy as my N7 Gen1
