    yea, but supposedly there was a way to do it through the sd slot.... but i cant find a single thing on it or how to do it that way. they said the best way is to do it with the host cable, but alas i dont have one and goin to take atleast 2 weeks at a minium to get here... grr

    You can not apply the update through the SD card, it must be done from a USB stick using an OTG cable or similar adapter. Or you can wait until Moto pushes the update, which hopefully will be soon. You can probably get a OTG cable/camera kit locally if you're willing to pay a bit more instead of waiting for the cheapo from China. Check Best Buy or Verizon stores.

    It can be done from sd card but not in stock recovery and the update has to be edited to remove the first two assertions. Not for the faint of heart.

    Threads with a link to an off-site guide aren't made sticky threads. If you'd like to make a quick write-up/guide in your own words for the thread, I'd be happy to review it for sticky-status.

    All the external link was supply the file. I tried to upload the file but i kept getting an error probably becasue the file is 80mb. I did supply a step by step guide which i made by trail and error which reads:

    Ok i think i figured it out. You cannot use the mircosd card slot to install the file.

    you must use the otg cable.

    And for anyone not familiar with recovery boot for the motorola Xoom here are the steps
    1. Reboot press power and volume up button at same time.
    2. At the motorola dual core screen>> press volume down ONCE after about 2 seconds you will see recover at the top left of screen.Press power button. If anything else comes up go back to step one and repeat. (Timing is wierd here)
    3.We should be at the green android screen with the yellow warning sign. Press power and volume up keys once at the same time. This brings up the recovery menu. Use the Volume keys to move up and down and the power button to select.


    I will add this to the OP and edit some things. Would that be enough

    It should be noted that the LTE version of that rom is a custom built rom and is not stock. It's simply how to go FROM stock to a custom rom. Nice, but, not exactly the same as what the WIFI owners are getting which is an official update. Also, you WILL lose data following the LTE guide if your Xoom isn't already unlocked. That process wipes it clean. Just something to be aware of. Not saying there's anything wrong with it....I myself am running a custom ICS build right now (Team EOS)...but it's not the same thing as the update the WIFI users are getting.

    Motorola XOOM camara OTG cable not working. Says \sd card not mounted

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

    It's not the cable. It's likely your flash drive. That's happened to a lot of people. Some have formatted theirs and it worked, but, there are a LOT of flash drives that don't appear to work at all with the Xoom. Try a smaller/older one if you have one.

    Took me three thumbdrives to find one it recognized and I formatted each the same. The one that worked is a small 4GB PNY model that my wife found on the street.

    Looks good. I changed the title to differentiate this thread from the LTE one.

    I Just read threw all the posts, I am not rooted but I am unlocked, will it matter if I am Unlocked?


    I tried to root before (a couple times actually) but literally gave up after 5 hours of frustration, using a Mac makes everything just that much harder to find guides and files.

    So now that I took the plunge and upgraded to ICS ... what is the future upgrade path. Will over the air updates work as normal? If the official ICS release is a bit different will this version be updated? Overall things are working great.

    Yes any updates will overwrite this version. All we did here was install an update, just not ota (over the air). And this is a stock untouched update straight from motorola. Unlike the verzion for the LTE which is a modded version of the update. The next OTA update should install right over this one. If in any case that does not work, I will post another thread on how to downgrade back to Honeycomb. Then we would update back to ICS using OTA update.

    Thanks harold, I thought, or at least hoped, that might be the answer. Did anybody else notice that the Music app did not get the new ICS style menu button? I wonder if that the music.apk was not updated in this build or if Google just missed this in their ICS music app.
