So I have a Xoom 3G and I only use Wi-Fi. Jelly Bean is coming out for the WiFi-only version and of course Verizon is going to make sure that the 3G/4G version doesn't get Jelly Bean till Key Lime Pie is out. So my questions are: Would the WiFi version work on my Xoom? If so, can I somehow spoof it to think it's a WiFi version to get the update and/or can I manually update to the WiFi Jelly Bean?

  • I have an answer in my inbox but I don't see it here? The response shows as "Well you can install it manually, but you won't have 3G/4G data." Does that sound legit? If so, where do I learn how to do that? Jul 20, 2012 at 15:11

Yes, you should be able to install a wifi only rom manually, I`ve just gone to ICS with 3g and its great.

hope this helps

  • Thanks...now the 3g should have already had the OTA ICS, right? (BTW, wow, you JUST posted this and I just checked for the first time this morning.) Jul 22, 2012 at 12:32
  • One last question...if I install my own ROM am I forever off the automated OTA upgrades? I'd like when the official Xoom 3g Jelly Bean comes out to be on it. Jul 22, 2012 at 12:36

    @GeeksOnHugs: generally yes, you will no longer be able to OTA unless you reflash back to stock version.
