    I can't wait for this, judgi g by how smooth it is on the nexus and with that rom people have going its going to be amazing! And it will be nice to have my phone and my tablet running the same OS. Hopefully moto and el Google will give us a little Christmas present from the freezer, eh?

    I've built it and run it on a WiFi Xoom we have lying around the office, and it's very nice! A few minor bugs (YouTube doesn't work on HD videos, if you have a BT keyboard connected and have a PIN unlock code you can't use the on-screen keyboard to unlock your device, and one or two other little things) but it's very smooth and even after loading up a few apps it was running just fine.

    I'd love to be able to put it on my own (3G/4G) unit, but Moto haven't released the baseband files to match the RIL in ICS so it's somewhat useless to me now, connectivity is a must. Soon, though, I'm sure.

    I, too, am super excited for my Xoom WIFI to get the update. It will seriously make it like an entirely new tablet. I'm extremely hopeful and confident we will see a significant performance increase, judging by how awesomely smooth the O/S runs on the Nexus, with kinda-similar hardware (both have dual-core processors, same amount of memory, etc...).

    Unfortunately, I've just read some news that's pretty disconcerting:
    http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/03/ice-cream-sandwich-coming-to-the-transformer-prime-january-12th/

    Apparently, the ASUS Transformer Prime is getting ICS before the Motorola Xoom? Is anyone else confused by this? I had assumed when I purchased the Xoom, it being a Google Experience device, we would be getting ICS first. Why/How is it getting to a totally random tablet (Yeah, ASUS, you're random...) before a Google Experience device? That would be like the Droid X getting an update before the Nexus S -- it doesn't make sense.

    I don't *really* mind...I'm just particularly looking forward to getting 4.0+ on my tablet, and it was one of the primary reasons for me purchasing the Xoom.

    I saw that also. I'm a bit peeved(lol) as that was also one of the main reasons for purchasing the Xoom. I know they have it working on the Xoom but something must be keeping them from releasing it. Hopefully we get it before the 12? That would be kinda cool.

    Although it is not official, there are fully functional ICS builds for Xoom on XDA. Just yesterday the Xoom devs got some help from someone that supposedly had a download to an "official" Chinese ICS Xoom update, and guess what, it turned out to be legit. Within hours they had the camera issues fixed and HDMI as well. Those of you wanting only official updates shouldn't have to hold out much longer either. There is much talk about Motorola sending out a "test" update to a few users registered at the moto dev site. Probably ICS.

    Motorola just released a soak test over the weekend. Once that's over, they'll be releasing it to the general public. Should be ready to download of us by the end of this week or next. If not, who knows haha. But, it's on the horizon.

    I flashed the wing ray ROM and it its smooth and fast. Oc it to 1.4ghz no keyboard lag. Camara needs fixed cause its blurry but for a ROM that's out before the main thing i'm not complaining. Can't wait for ics on razr.

    Someone posted on the Xoom Forums that they are officially releasing it today! He said it popped up on his WiFi Xoom for an update and it was ICS!

    Wifi only?

    Is the update only for the Wifi Xooms? Has anyone received the update on a 3G/4G Xoom?
