The Motorola XOOM is the first tablet to get Android Honeycomb, and it looks like it will be one of the first tablets to get Ice Cream Sandwich as well. The folks over at XDA-developers have managed to come up with an almost fully working version of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Motorola XOOM, and according to reports online it’s working pretty well. There are minor quirks like Netflix, the camera, calendar syncing, and gyroscope not working properly but all in all it seems to be stable enough for daily use.
The custom ROM requires you to have a rooted/unlocked XOOM, but installation is a simple affair with you needing to just booting into recovery, making a backup, wiping your system and flashing the files. The end result? A functional version of Ice Cream Sandwich on your XOOM. At the moment it is only for the WiFi version of the tablet, so WiFi + 3G XOOM owners will have to wait. Hopefully an official update from Google/Motorola will roll out for the tablet in the near future.
