Motorola Xoom Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update Starts Rolling Out

The Motorola Xoom Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update has begun to roll out to owners just after the software reached the hands of soak testers.

We’ve heard from several Motorola Xoom owners who claim that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is rolling out and this seems to be confirmed by numerous reports which claim the same thing.

As of right now, we’re unsure whether this is a full on roll out or if the update has hit a select group of people to start. Owners of the Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom should head into their device’s settings, go to the About section and check to see if an update is available.

If it is, owners will be prompted to install Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google’s latest piece of software and an update that just recently was unleashed to soak test members to ensure its stability.

Typically, updates roll out just a few days after hitting the hands of soak testers so it’s no surprise that we’re seeing the roll out this soon after.

The Motorola Xoom was one of the original batch of devices that were promised Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from Google. Remaining on the list are the Nexus S 4G on Sprint and both the Verizon Galaxy Nexus and the Sprint Galaxy Nexus.

We assume now that the Motorola Xoom, Nexus S, and Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ have gotten their upgrades to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, those devices should be next in line to see the new software.
