Well, that was fast. Android 4.1.2 was just released to AOSP last week, and Motorola has already started pushing the Wi-Fi XOOM's update out to soak testers. This isn't a huge jump in terms of functionality, and the incremental update will bump the XOOM from build JRO03H (4.1.1) to JZO54K (4.1.2).

Of course, those who aren't soak testers are probably wondering how they can get this update now. The beauty of Google-supported hardware like the Wi-FI XOOM (which is, for all intents and purposes a Nexus device), is that Big G makes updates likes this one available almost immediately. Therefore, it can be downloaded and manually applied right now.

Before you grab it, it's worth noting that you must be on the aforementioned build JDO03J. Otherwise, it just won't work.

Once you have the file in-hand, simply follow these instructions to flash it. Good luck!

Update: The adb sideload method (instructions would be similar to the ones in this post) is reportedly working as well. You don't even need a USB OTG cable for that.

    I flippin' love my Xoom WiFi. I have been considering selling it when I get my Note II, but I don't think I can justify it for whatever incremental cash gain it will bring. Unspoken Nexus 10 FTW.

    I posted about this morning and cam confirm it works fine with USB OTG withstock recovery

    Does anyone know what the heck JDO03J is? This update takes the device from JRO03H to JZ054K. Nothing a little fact checking wouldn't have avoided.

      I've no idea where that came from. It's definitely JRO03H, you're right.

    Just want to confirm you can ADB sideload from stock recovery. I had to setup the ADB driver again while in sideload mode but it works.

      Thanks for the confirmation.

    Typo spotted "USB OTF cable". I think you mean "OTG cable".

      Bah, that was my fault. All distracted by the exciting things going on behind the scenes here.
