    Anyone try Android 4.2 Camera on Xoom YET???

    Hey Gang, been doing my usual Android readings and came across this article on the New Android 4.2 Camera App w/photo sphere

    Looks pretty cool but i was wondering if anyone has tried installing it on our Moto Xooms?I know they got the Galaxy Nexus 4.1.1 JB running it now too.

    Since our Xooms are updated all the way to 4.1.2 any chance it could run on our systems too???

    Thanks All

    Xoom has different proprietary drivers to Galaxy phones, so I would say it's very doubtful it would work.

    If anyone does decide to try it, make a nandroid backup first.

    The Xoom has to be rooted for any of these applications. That wasn't mentioned in the OP

    so glad i read the post from svenner...
    was just about to give it a shot!

    and, correct if in error, i believe that bigdave is "rooted" so it must just be a faulty download. how did it scan?

    I was able to get it working on the xoom with no issue. I have created a flashable zip. You can find it in my THREAD at XDA.
