Any XOOM 4G LTE owners recall signing up for a Jelly Bean soak test from Motorola back in early May? Well, according to emails that arrived in inboxes last night, the first phase of rollouts should begin sometime this morning. The update will bring your well-aged tablet up to Android 4.1+, allowing XOOM owners to finally get off of Ice Cream Sandwich.
In the email, Moto’s forum manager apologizes for the wait, but mentions that Moto had to go back to the drawing board for this one. Whatever that could mean.
Are there any XOOM owners left on Verizon that are looking to download this update once it’s available?
Thanks for signing up for the Verizon XOOM LTE software test. I’m so sorry there was such a long break between registration and the test. Sometimes we have to go back to the drawing board — this was one of them.
The software should be pushed to your phone early tomorrow. We’re counting on your participation in the private community — so please take part!
Your input is very important to us. To ensure we hear you, please follow these guidelines:
Please post all your feedback in our private community (link below). This also where you’ll find help during the soak.
Please do not call or contact Motorola or Verizon support for help during the soak. Those teams are not yet ready to support this software.
I’m not able to check private messages on the forums during soaks, so if you need immediate help that’s not a good route to take. Use the private area instead.
If you have any problems accessing the private community, please click here for help. I know some of you indicated problems logging in when registering and I’m sorry we didn’t get to you ahead of the soak. One tip — your log-in email is the one where you are receiving this email.
Please start your visit to the private community here. You’ll find additional important information in the Welcome message as soon as you sign in.
Thanks so much for your participation! We really appreciate your time and insights.
