xoom 2 ics rom flash

I would like to know whether we can flash a different rom on these and still be covered under warranty for hardware. If we are just changing software why wouldn't hardware still be covered?
Anyway, are there any decent roms out there? I'm sick of waiting.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi Dermot,

Unfortunately modifying the ROM or Rooting the phone software is grounds for voiding the overall phone warranty.

Thanks lathania. given that i'm about ready to throw it out i'm not so worried about warranty. does anyone know of a way to flash it to a higher android os? i barely use it because it is so buggy.

Hi dermot,


Not sure if you have seen the new Tablet updates page that lists when software updates for devices like the Xoom 2 are due out. It currently lists that ICS update for the Xoom 2 has completed its Telstra side of testing and now we are just waiting on Motorola who are planning to make it available to customers on 3rd of September.


So if you can wait just over a week you will be able to get the update Smiley Happy
