After a mysterious “soak test” was opened up to a select few Motorola XOOM WiFi owners, we were left scratching our heads on what Motorola could have planned. Well, an email to Droid-Life this evening has detailed exactly what to expect from this test, as build number IMM76 begins its official rollout any day now. The Android 4.0.4 update is said to include quicker screen rotation (seriously, that’s a huge Android pet peeve of mine), new screen lock setting, camera improvements and the usual bug fixes.

Here’s the email currently being sent out:

Android 4.04 (IMM76) Software Update for the Motorola XOOM™ WIFI users in the US

We are pleased to announce a new software update for the Motorola XOOM™ WIFI in the US. This Android 4.04 (IMM76) software update by Motorola includes numerous enhancements. Upgrade today for peak performance.

For more information on Motorola updates and product support, please visit us at:

Who Can Use This Release
ALL Motorola XOOM — US WIFI users

After downloading and installing the software release, you will notice:


Quicker screen rotation
A new setting to choose whether the power button immediately locks the device or not
Microsoft Exchange improvements with additional EAS policies
Better phone number recognition
Camera and image quality improvements
Improved stability

I know it’s a little early to expect a broader rollout, but perhaps it’s already trickled down to a few Xoom users? Anyone out there getting prompted for anything yet?
