This is a discussion on ics update for UK xoom users? within the ICS General Discussion forums, part of the Motorola Xoom ICS Forum category; Originally Posted by cazza Just got ICS pushed to my HTC sensation phone!! if google can do that on a phone running froyo then it ...
now it's official, but why not in UK? any news when is it coming over?
Q2 which is anytime between now and June.
I'm not an Apple groupie
UK 3G STOCK
not at all techy, but I'll do my best to find out!
bertie, first off, great post.
after the line"now type ged and hit return and again follow any instructions on screen or on your xoom(this converts your xoom into a google experience device and uses the US image downloaded from moto dev)"
I had to vol+ / power button to restart then it carried on ok.
I downloaded swiftkey 3 tablet from vip.swiftkey, set it to english UK. works great
Its been a while but i have good news my Xoom has been sent to Motorola and is getting sorted and will be back with me end of next week
When I did that, it was stuck in a perpetual honeycomb animated boot screen. When this happened after some trial and error, even attempted to do a recovery (Pwr + vol up, then vol down) to no avail, Xoot wouldn't detect the Xoom device - I almost crapped my pants. I rebooted using PWR + vol up keys once more, and re-ran Xoot even while it was still stuck in the animated boot logo screen.
Xoot then controlled my Xoom and the second time around, it progressed further and installed the US rom.
Several updates later, I am now on 4.0.4 ICS, cool!
One of my most important apps - Netflix works, yay!
ICS is indeed snappier and the typing lag is gone esp when visiting this forum.
PS. If I want to revert back to the Canadian Xoom ROM, once I reflashed it, do I have to lock it? If so, what would be the process to re-lock it?
It would seem that Australian Xoomers shout louder than us in the UK as they now have their update date in June...
Shout louder guys.
