    How can I know where my tablet was bought from?

    Hello, in Oct 2012 i received a Xoom 2 MZ616 as a prize due to my exceptional academic results, and i wanted to know where my Xoom was bought from. I have used the Motorola Upgrade Software and selected Romania as country the tablet was bought from and i get this :

    MOTOROLA XOOM 2
    This device will remain on Android 4.0.4 (ICS).

    Do you have the latest Motorola software? Find out.

    The thing is i dont know if it were bought from Romania, and my System Version shows this at the end : Retail.en.EU.

    Can anyone tell me if i can find out where my Xoom was bought from?
    Many thanks,
    Andrei.

    it doesnt matter where it was bought from unless your still under warranty/claim out of warranty service. the Xoom2 will never get an android OTA update above ICS 4.0.4. If you want Jellybean, your only option is to root and rom. There is next to no support for your device as the xoom2 has a locked bootloader

    Your running english retail European build for MZ616

    the only way to really know is by the MEID. contact Moto, give them MEID in settings/about tablet, and they will tell you

    Then why if i select Romania as purchase country it says : Your device will remain on ICS 4.0.4 and if i select UK it shows : Stay tuned for new updates?

    you can check the moto website. only xoom devices scheduled for 4.1 JB are MZ600, MZ602, MZ604 US. no Xyboard/Xoom2 devices are scheduled for JB 4.1, and no Xoom devices are scheduled for 4.2 or higher

    this is the worse marketing strategy.... it's like Apple introduce iOS 7 and it will only be available on iPhone 5, iPhone 5S/6 will still run iOS 6. They encourage us to buy old devices instead of new ones. How cool is that? DAMN

    CM10 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean ROM For Motorola XOOM 3G–Installation Guide
    I dont know if i am allowed to posts links in here, but i wish to know if i can upgrade my xoom mz616 software to JellyBean through unofficial ways.

    Thanks in advice,

    the xoom2 has a locked bootloader, and next to no developer support. the only option you have for root and custom rom to my knowledge is by using the RAZR phone hack. be sure you know what you are doing, or you will end up with a bricked device
