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.

The Xoom Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update has begun to roll out.

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.

Sprint and Verizon have not yet confirmed anything.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will bring a host of new features to users of the Xoom and other devices including Google Now, re-sizable widgets, customizable Notifications, offline Voice dictation and more.

Any other Xoom owners out there seeing the update?

    What about those of us who bought the 3g Xoom more than a year ago, paid more, and had to wait for the 4g upgrade and then waited six months after the Wi-Fi version for the ICS upgrade?

    Not really impressed with Jelly Bean on the tablet. Love it on my Droid X. :-)

      Yeah, I’d like to jellybean up my Droid X too. How did you do it? Just put your head down on the pillow and it updated and was handed back to you by a girl in a bikini?

    Thanks for the update. Seeing as how the ICS roll out wasn’t to long ago, I don’t expect to see the next upgrade for quite sometime on my 4G Xoom. Delays like this sometimes force the consumer to evaluate their purchases, and possibly make different choices in the future. Seeing that 3G and current LTE are here for a bit, as LTE2 is quite a ways off, you would think they would want to root consumers deep into reliability of their products and upgrade cycles. Motorola’s recent product line changes also puts a bit of worry into the tablets life cycle. The tablet is obviously upgradable to next Wi-Fi technology, Verizon should be on the ball for consumer loyalty, but that’s just a fairy tale.
