Alright, so here is a taste of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for the VERIZON Motorola 3G/4G XOOM. This build version number is IML74K.

This is a "out of box" build of the freshly released AOSP sources from Google. This is a "Stingray" configured build for the 3G/4G Verizon U.S. XOOM. NOT to be confused with "Wingray" - the WiFi specific build.

One ISSUE: No 3G/4G at the moment on my end. I think this is because the build called for an updated baseband version:

These are my current versions on my XOOM:
3G-Baseband: CDMA_N_03.1A.54P
4G-Baseband: LTEDC_U_05.19.07

The build asks for these versions:
3G-Baseband: CDMA_N_03.1A.5CPS
4G-Baseband: LTEDC_U_07.19.00

Update 1: Re-built as flash-able zip (download link below). Still has 3G/4G issue - appears to not recognize the radio. Still trying to find clarification on issue.

I do not know where to get these updated basebands, but when we can get ahold of them, this just might work.

BUT, I was able to flash this build to my Verizon 4G XOOM and it works nicely from what I can see from initial testing.

What is working: (That I can tell so far)
- Wi-Fi
- Browser
- Some report issues with GPS
- Gapps (to an extent, some minor issues with market, etc.)


What is not working:
-3G/4G - baseband issue?
-Camera*
-HDMI*
-HD Video Playback?
*Need binaries from Moto

======> DIRECTIONS <======

Disclaimer: For heaven's sakes, FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK!

The link below is a compressed folder containing FASTBOOT images. You MUST use fastboot to flash these to your Motorola XOOM.

FASTBOOT Install:

- Extract image files from .zip

Then in cmd, booted into bootloader:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot -w
fastboot reboot

Download FASTBOOT Files:

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?0vvjzg1dvivtre7
NOTE: Do not FLASH zip file in bootloader (must extract .img files first!) Also, not compatible with CWM (use link below for CWM)

CWM ZIP Install:

- Enter CWM Recovery (Tested on Tiamat version)
- Mounts & Storage >> Mount USB
- Copy .zip to SD Card
- Go back to CWM menu >> Install from sd card >> choose zip from SD card
- After it installs, perform a wipe/reset in CWM, then reboot.

Download CWM zip File:

WARNING: Will replace your recovery image with default recovery! (Not sure how to disable this yet)

Link: <ON HOLD>

Please NOTE: This is my first build so for those who want a taste of ICS on their 4G XOOMs, have at it! This should suffice until a well-experienced developer works out the kinks.

I'll give it a try now. I suggest, this might be working on the MZ601, as the Tiamat, 2.3, based on the Verizon (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1387053) does also work for me.
I'll let You know, if it worked, in some minutes...

I've flashed the WiFi version to my 3G MZ601, it works great (although without 3G..) and I think you would be better off with that version - this one is made for the US 3G/4G Verizon model, and so I think there might be some screw-ups if you flash this ROM on a Euro-model Xoom :)

Allright, at first glance it seems to be working fine for my MZ601. But haven't tried 3G until now. And as to be expected, the camera isn't working as well...
But the rest is really blazing fast!
