DONATE TO ME
Almost all but given up on getting a Xyboard 8.2 b/c of lack of ....ANYTHING...development, updates, ICS...etc. But I just read on the XoomForums that they are very very close to root for the Xyboard. Then I would imagine something like bootstrap or safestrap would work to install custom ROMS.

OK just been onto Moto tech support and they dont plan to release the honeycomb update to all devices :

fooked over yet again. well done moto.

Code:
Select Code
MOTO: Ok, can you please specify what is happening when you try to update. You connect to the Wi-Fi, then you go to Settings  > About tablet > System update ... any error messages, what is the alert message?
ME : i just get the message "your device is up to date.  No update is necessary at thsi time"
MOTO: Ok, let me check with our technical team regarding update. I'll be in a minute.
ME : im running android 3.2, build number 1.6.0_218.3-MX615
ME : from what ive read on teh forums it seems as thoguh anyone with a 1.6.0_218 build hasnt recieved the update
MOTO: that means that you particular XOOM 2 is up to date. If there was a small update for specific devices for 3.2.2 (x.x. 2 ) version  - that means this update fixes some issues or problems for those devices. If your device is not receiving update automatically - that means there is no update for your particular Xoom2
ME: the only thing is the issues that this update fixes ARE relevent on these tablets
ME:  http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Support/GB-EN/TABLETS/MZ615/Blur_Version_0.268.4-MZ615-Retail-EU.en-GB.html
ME: i.e. its fixed rendering problems in teh browser / appstore and several other bits
ME :  http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=22338528
ME : is there any chance i get get hold  of the update and isntall it manually
MOTO: I've checked with our technical team and at the moment this particular built number - doesn't need an update.

I find it unacceptable too! We were promised an update within 6 weeks of release, but now we have to wait for Q3 when the RAZR is receiving the update in Q2 seems quite unfair.

Man, thats some bs, I'm on 16.0M-218.14-MZ617 and I haven't gotten the update so I guess I'm not one of the chosen ones, but my tablet definitely has some of the problems addressed by the update!

I just got my Xoom 2. I have Android 3.2.2 and Build-number: 1.6.0_268.6-MZ616

Is this the current version? My Tablet say's, that no updates are required.
