Motorola XOOM gets an unofficial Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich port

0. phoneArena 19 Dec 2011, 08:55 posted on

Now there is a way of getting Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich running on a Motorola XOOM. However, that is done by installing an unofficial, custom ROM, which does not work quite as one would expect...

Tried it out and it works well but another missing feature, as far as I saw, was the Android market. However, ICS will breath additional life into the Xoom and make it a good contender. especially the LTE upgraded models.

I removed it off my xoom since the camera, GPS and Netflix are not yet functional. Having the former two option working on my xoom are must have since I enjoytaking a seat in a conner and watching movies when I go shopping with my wife and daughter.

Thanks for letting us know how it works! Hope they will get these sorted out soon, or better yet, release an official update.

The latest built is very solid. I decided to give it another try as realized that I really don't use the. XOOM's camera all that often. I must say ICS is absolutely phenomena on the device. It really makes the Zoom feel like a new tablet. In fact he display of the Zoom seems to have vastly improved and the overall speed is just as fluid as the Ipad2. The Google apps are all operational and most third party apps that have been optimized for ICS work exceptionally well. The predictive typing, spelling, auto correction, suggestive word replacement and ICS keybord are impeccable. Google nailed this features.
All in all I am really happy with the current built and can't. Wait for Motorola to release the binary drivers for the camera and GPS.
