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 Valleyslad Hi, I'm a complete newb here but I managed to GED my xoom using the method you described, so thank you ...
Ok firstly thanks for the tutorial and Hi everyone !
Brand new UK Wifi Xoom. I've unlocked the bootloader with xoot, I then go to try and root - which is where I'm having the issue.
Xoot says I need recovery before I can root but when I attempt to flash recovery the CMD prompt window advises I have flashed recovery (followed by the instructions of how to enter recovery on the Xoom) but no matter what I do on the Xoom it sits on the Motorola logo with something about 'entering a protocol' on the top left.
Could someone help ?
Ok so I now have recovery, and also have it rooted. I installed the ged update which it seemed to be doing fine, then I get the Android triangle warning, after 5 minutes it boots and in about shows 3.0.1 as the version - no further updates come through ...

Valleyslad... I have to the same problem, I think there is a way around it. Somebody posted a link to an app called market enabler, you can search for it on Android Market. I think you have to have your xoom rooted first though.

Thanks for the welcome
Ok so I've gone back to the start (I had a backup of my stock 3.2) and re-opened the bootloader, installed CWM recovery and re-rooted with xoot (sorry did it before the reply)
Should I re-root again using the Universal Root method ? Would that be affecting the update to ICS ?
Or would it be ok for me now to just install a stock ICS build via CWM recovery ?
Ok so tried an update to 4.0.3 via CWM and it installed fine but then sat at the ICS boot animation for 15 minutes.
Decided to go back to my 3.2 backup again - just don't think my Xoom wants ICS lol

Thanks for the reply, just wifi only.
It was a rookie error I was making, didn't factory reset in CWM before install of the ICS rom so it wouldn't load.
All sorted now with update_US-Xoom-WiFi-4.0.3-IML77_stachre_v03 .
I tried to use this app, but it did not make any difference to my UK MZ604 wifi only xoom, I had to go back to stock to get my local apps (BBC Iplayer, BBC News, Sky News, etc).Valleyslad...

One question I have is - I am rooted with the Universal Root at the moment, so I can backup all my apps up using Titanium backup - If I rooted with the US (ICS) would it then allow me to put all my local apps back on from my backup and work within the US (ICS).
Not sure about that, I've never used Titanium backup, hopefully someone else will know more.
