More than a month after the European roll-out of Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for Wifi-only Motorola Xoom tablets begun, the British 3G version of the Xoom is finally getting its ICS update. That’s right — until recently, the UK 3G Xoom was two versions behind the U.S. Wifi version, which recently got bumped up to Jelly Bean. We’ll just let that sink in for a second.
In any case, Eurodroid is reporting that those who’ve stuck it out with the 3G Xoom for the past year or so have been rewarded with an OTA update to Android 4.0.4, and with it the knowledge that they’re only one major version behind Xoom owners across the pond. If you’ve got a 3G Xoom, head to Settings > About tablet > Software updates and finally kiss goodbye to Honeycomb.
Now begins the wait for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, though given the timing of this most recent update, we certainly wouldn’t hold our breath. If you’re feeling brave (and impatient), you may want to check our friendly Motorola Xoom forums for tips on rooting and flashing a Jelly Bean ROM on there manually.
