Build dates are Tuesday July 3rd 2012. Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. For the 8.2 and 10.1 Wi-Fi AND 8.2 and 10.1 LTE models.

WARNING: If you are on a Wi-Fi only Xyboard of any size, there are no known fastboot files for you. Meaning if there is a newer leak for ICS or the official ICS 4.0.4 for Xyboard Wi-Fi only is a higher version number, you are STUCK on this ICS unless fastboot files come out.

WARNING 2: If you are on ANY model of Xyboard, once ICS installs there is no going back to Honeycomb. Ever. Ever. Ever.


Now that warnings are out of the way... here are my install instructions adapted from andlaw's Sideload ICS thread on droidrzr.com:

Quote:

Be on STOCK Xyboard latest Honeycomb update. No frozen apps. No custom recoveries, etc.


Install instructions are using ES File Explorer and Rom Manager (free) from the Play Store download these and be rooted on stock latest honeycomb.

open rom manager free, hit OK, now press the home button.
open es file explorer, press YES, press menu, open settings, scroll down to Path settings and under Root settings: Enable
Up to Root (path settings)
Root Explorer (root settings)
Mount File System (root settings)

"DOWNLOAD THE ICS UPDATE ZIP AND PLACE INTO YOUR PHONES /CACHE DIRECTORY (not /system/cache, but in the root of the phone ~/cache/)"

open ES FILE EXPLORER, locate your /cache directory and then select the Blur_Version.___.___.___.MZ6__.______.__.en.USzip (depending on your version of Xyboard and ICS leak)
(now choose Open With ROM MANAGER)

phone will restart, and begin installation of the ICS leak (takes 10-15minutes)
phone restarts, boot animation begins, Android is upgrading :: Profit success!! Celebrate!!!


Now onto rooting:
  1. Connect USB to Xyboard and the Windows PC. Install the Motorola USB Drivers 5.7 or higher (found by an easy google search if you do not have these already installed).
  2. On the notification menu set the USB Mode to MTP mode or Camera mode (basically anything besides USB Mass Storage)
  3. Under Settings > Developer Options > Hit the "Enable USB Debugging" selection.
  4. Run this after extracted the zip file: http://goo.im/apps/mattlgroff/DroidRazrRoot404.zip

Note from a nice user:

Hey man.. I'm HussX on other forums.. I don't have enough posts here yet to post in dev forums, but I have something you may want to edit in/sticky. If someone recovers their tab with the fastboot files, the cache size may show it doesn't have enough space to copy over the ICS leak. To fix it, they need to boot into recovery, wipe/format the cache, then reboot. It will then show up the right size and allow them to copy the file over to update. Thanks, dude.

Sense it more likely to get a lot of questions here, I'll ask
You say no fast boot files for the WiFi only model,
Do you know something that we don't, are there files for the droid xyboard?
Are you hording the fast boot files for the droid xyboard? Lol

Its very clean and as always with ICS much smoother. And I'm looking into the new recovery hijack used for ICS kernel since the old gingerbread method didn't work

I am hording nothing lol.
They are on mod2extreme.com I believe the site is, found by a google search or three.

I am uploading utilities (similar to my Droid Razr Utility) for the 8.2" LTE and the 10.1" LTE Xyboards for pre-paring sideload of these leaks and unbricking them, which include the FB files.

i had no idea the official fastboot files were out...
theres like 0 info on that site, do you know if those are official fastboot files?
i ask simply cause if they are just imgs someone pulled off the tab itself they will not contain the moto sig and would fail to flash.
