Motorola Xoom 4G and WiFi Versions Get Jelly Bean Nightlies
Since the Jelly Bean source code was released, developers have been head-over-heels trying to get Jelly Bean on their devices. The first releases will most likely be for devices running the pure Google experience. As the Motorola Xoom happens to be one of those devices, it’s no surprise the tablet was among the first to receive the goods.
Development team teameos has begun pumping out AOSP-built Jelly Bean nightly builds for the Motorola Xoom WiFi and 4G editions—also known as the Wingray and Stingray, respectively. Because they’re nightlies, teameos doesn’t provide a clear list of the features currently working. However, they do provide a change log of what they changed from day to day, so users can at least see what’s been fixed or what still needs fixed.
Depending on the changes the developers made that day, the performance and stability can change drastically from release to release. As some changes can be unstable and some can be stable, teameos gives the customary warning that a particular release may be less stable than an older release. Despite that, user reports have been overwhelmingly positive.willverduzco for the image!]
