Ice Cream Sandwich Update Rolling Out To Select Motorola XOOMs, Here’s How To Get It Now

Motorola has begun rolling out a supposedly secret update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the XOOM tablet. It will go out only to those who signed up to participate in the “Motorola Feedback Network” program, and will presumably become available for mass consumption shortly after those testers approve of the update.

But of course, you don’t have to wait if you don’t want to, thanks to solarnz who has posted a link to the update package. Since it’s a regular update.zip, you can simply follow this guide to flash it – just keep in mind that you’ll lose root access. Otherwise, people are reporting that it behaves just like any other OTA update, so it’ll leave your data intact.

However, before you get too excited over the prospect of running some official Ice Cream Sandwich on your XOOM, don’t take our words for granted. Instead, read up in the forum thread to see what other people have reported with this update.
