    Either get the Motorola Camera Connection kit, which is really just a USB adapter cable, or get an OTG (On The Go) generic USB adapter. Even though I have had my WiFi Xoom since day 1, I am just now getting the accessories I should have had long ago. I have a Thinkpad USB keyboard with trackpoint which works great via USB. Recently I also got the speaker dock, bluetooth keyboard and mouse since they were on sale.

    Yea, the camera connection kit is currently 7.99 at best buy. I'm thinking about grabbing one at some point this weekend just to have it. I got an OTG cable from hong kong on ebay for 5 bucks and it works just fine. But you definitely need a host mode (On The Go) cable to do it.

    They may be out of them. Apparently they're getting rid of all Xoom accessories or some such nonsense. But if you can find one, that's a great price.

    I wish there was a way to do this with out needing the OTG cable. No one around has one and I can't connect to my Xoom with out it.

    I don't have any experience with Xoom updates, but, I had a theory that no one has confirmed or denied. *IF* you can update a rooted Xoom, theoretically you could put the update in /system/cache and the run the update check. It MIGHT find it. I don't know. Just a theory. And I don't know if a rooted Xoom can install updates.

    Not working for me...
    I have a unrooted U.S. wifi xoom. I have downloaded the zip file and placed it on my usb stick. I am entering into recovery mode fine and selecting the zip (using usb stick and moto camera cord) but keep getting..... E:failed to seek in/tmp/sideload/package.zip (invalid argument)... and ...E:signature verification failed followed by..."installation aborted"

    I know on droid life it says i need to install clockwork recovery but Im finding this confusing.
    "Move the image file over to wherever your adb and fastboot files are set up in your computer.".....I have no idea where my fast boot files are. Can I create a folder?
    I have a feeling im making this more complicated then it truly is but still..kinda lost and some simple steps to install clock work or zip install would be most appreciated.

    OK here's what we are an do.. For now press and hold volume up and power to do a reboot.

    Next delete that file on your usb stick then redownload the same file via droid-life.. Make sure it's not in any folder just place the. Zip file at the top of the directory on the usb stick. I let me know how I goes.. I wouldn't use clockwork recovery. I seeing as there is no need to root that is.

    ok..so still not working and my finger is going numb from pressing that stupid volume button
    unfortunately same invalid message....but i did notice that when I download the file from droid life that I get two "parts". one is the standard zip but shows no MB the other is the same file name but ends in "zip.part" and has 85.9 mb. know anything about that? How big is the file when you download it?

    silly question tho, how do you know if its the lte or wifi only?
  17. #42  

    Default Re: Motorola Xoom ICS update. FLASH WITH NO ROOT REQUIRED

    If what is LTE or wifi only? The update? That's easy...the LTE version ain't out yet. If you're asking about whether the Xoom is LTE or wifi only, well, um, no comment on that one!

    When you look in settings, wireless & networks, do you have options for tethering & portable hotspot and mobile networks?



    That should help, as well.

    But what do you do if your pc doesn't "see" the Xoom with the OTG cable attached? I have had this ongoing problem with my laptop being connected to the Xoom but not "seeing" it. All I get is that an MTP device is connected (yes, I have gone to Motorola's website and downloaded all the drivers) but when I go to the Device Manager, it does something really strange...the dropdown list will appear and it will show the MTP Device (not Xoom...just MTP Device), then the list will minimize and re-maximize and show MTP Device with a "!", then it will minimize/re-maximize and show MTP Device without the "!" and continue this way until I finally just disconnect it.

    Huh? The otg cable isn't for connecting to a PC. It's to allow you to plug a USB flashdrive in.

    Okay...guess I was misunderstood the abbreviation. So..the OTG cable allows you to connect a USB flashdrive (where do you get one?) but whatever the connecting cable is called that allows you to connect the PC to the Xoom is my first issue since I can't do anything if the pc doesn't see my Xoom, right?

    If you're just trying to do this update the the PC connection doesn't matter at all. (I'd still try to fix that but it has nothing to do with this update...and who knows maybe the update will cure that for you) A USB flash drive is just one of those little sticks that plug in and are used like any other drive on your machine. Plug it into the PC, copy the update to the root folder, plug in the otg adapter on the xoom, plug the flash drive into that, and reboot into recovery. To do that can be tricky. When the dual core screen comes up, count to 3 and hit volume down. If it says android recovery, hit volume up. When you get the pic of the Droid and the ! hit power and volume up to bring up the recovery menu. From there you should be able to flash the update.
