We just saw Android 4.0.2 officially roll out to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus today, and even confirmed what would be in the Android 4.0.3 update to come. Well it seems the latest AOSP build has been pushed and supports the Nexus S and Motorola XOOM [WiFi]. Even better, the guys at XDA Developers have a bootable version of the ROM up and running for the XOOM.

Many features such as the camera are still broken, and there are a load of bugs that will need to be fixed - but that's normal when taking an AOSP source. This is more of an extremely early Beta (or more appropriately an Alpha) of ICS for the Motorola XOOM, but their developmental community is strong, and this push should offer a great start. Of course, Motorola will eventually update the XOOM themselves; even if development starts to slow down.

From the clip you can see the obvious glitches when transitioning from screen to screen, but it's extremely smooth. Even debatably smoother than the XOOM's initial Honeycomb release. It's great not having one universal OS to rule them all, and I have a feeling the developers are going to love it.

    I received the ICS update on my WiFi Xoom 3 days ago. I find several improvements in operation but one glitch, which is a major one for me, is that flash player sometimes works and the rest of the time I get a small blue cube with question marks in it in the middle of the area where the video should be streaming. But I’ll give it a couple more days before I get too concerned about it!

  • thank you its really great and looking so beautiful,
