Update 7/26/12: It looks like the JRO03H update was final after all and has now started rolling out to everyone. Grab your XOOM and taste some Jelly Bean (thanks, @Fdiazreal and @iphilluv).

The Wi-Fi XOOM Jelly Bean update is almost here - after a brief delay it's finally rolling out to a limited group of soak testers who volunteer to provide feedback and test release candidates early. If all goes well, we should expect a wide release probably in the next few days, although if you're feeling brave, you can attempt to flash the update zip over your stock IMM76 build using a USB-OTG cable and these instructions. However, so far those who attempted this manual update procedure were not successful due to the annoying apply_patch_space error we've also seen before on the Nexus.

Download

If you're currently using the Wi-Fi XOOM with this build fingerprint: motorola/tervigon/wingray:4.0.4/IMM76/292727:user/release-keys (check your build.prop if you're not sure), you can download the 79MB update file f85d815e2b75.signed-tervigon-JRO03H-from-IMM76.f85d815e.zip directly from Google or use one of our mirrors:

MD5: 3bbd044a5911118136aeec365b5e0b4c.

Again, the usual update instructions are here, though they may not work for everyone.

    So the Tablet UI remains the same...

      Looks like it.

      • http://isradroid.wordpress.com/ Shay Levi

        can we have more screen-shoots?

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          Those aren't my screenshots - they were sent by the tipster. I don't have a XOOM anymore, sorry.

        • nhizzat

          What screen shots do you want? It mostly looks like ICS.

          • krazyfrog

            Some of the new notifications would be nice.

    Flash can be achieved with EOS CWM on the Xoom, instructions in this thread at XDA: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1736634&page=19

    • nhizzat

      Make the switch to EOS TWRP

      • Sathed

        CWM is easily the most popular and most supported recovery out there... Why switch to TWRP?

        • nhizzat

          TWRP 2.2 is faster than CWMR 5.x. Plus, their implementation of the touchscreen within recovery easily bests CWMR 5.x Touch, especially on the Xoom.

          • Asphyx

            Actually the TeamEOS folks have told people to use Rogue Touch Recovery for their latest releases as they require an initial Radio flash and the only recovery that can flash the radio file is Rogue Touch.
            That may not be all that important for WiFi (Wingray) users but it is important for anyone with 4G versions. In either case since they seem to require that for the 4G releases it stands to reason might as well use what they prefer you to for everything.

          • nhizzat

            Yeah, I just read that in their thread. Not a big deal, just takes longer to back up and restore nands. This will be a non-issue as soon as they get their hands on the official release :)

  • Albert Rabuyo

    I'm all up for modding, but this is really really wrong. All of you should just leave it to the testers.

    • nhizzat

      Meh, I've been testing JB on my Xoom for over a month now.

    • Fortyseven

      "Really really wrong"? Dramatic enough, Al? It's software that runs your tablet, not suckering bums out of their alcohol money. Have a little perspective. :P

  • cviniciusm

    "...wide release...", it means "...wide US release..."

    • nhizzat

      If you're disappointed, why not flash the EOS rom?

  • Bob P

    What suck is that its US wifi only. I mean I only just received the 4.0.3 update in June, here in Japan on the international wifi version. That mean we can bounce an update?
    I would root, but don't wanna!

    • tBs_Battousai

      you don't have to root to flash the US ROM, I'll post a link if anyone asks for it...

      • CharlesVT

        DO IT PLEASE!!!

  • FlexPlexico

    And as usual Motorola's international customers are left behind. Most haven't even gotten to ICS yet - this release will probably reach the rest of the world in 2013 Q1 if Motorola's past track record is used for guidance.

    International customers are better off with anything but Motorola. At least others don't treat them as 2nd class. And some - like ASUS - are actually quite fast with updates.

    • tBs_Battousai

      that's why i flashed the US ROM, I'm now running ICS and will get JB when it's pushed out in the states...

      • FlexPlexico

        Unfortunately that will not work if you have a 3G Xoom. I have flashed TeamEOS JB on my Xoom - it is great. However, I hate having to mess around with rooting, etc. I really just wanted something that worked.

      • Sudhakar

        can you please send me the instructions for flashing the uk xoom to US Rom.

        sudraju@gmail.com

        thanks
