Pandora on the Motorola Xoom WiFi
Posted by rbTech Staff on 08 April 2011 10:14 PM

One of my favorite features of my droid is Pandora, so I was super excited when I added my Google account to my Xoom and Pandora was suddenly there.  My excitement dimmed quickly however whenI tried to launch Pandora, and was met with an immediate force close error.  As my 11 year old is fond of saying, "Sad Face!".

 

I tried uninstalling Pandora, and reinstalling, and still an immediate force close.

 

A couple Google searches turned up a thread on the Android users forum that pointed to  another thread with a post from a user who said he'd installed Pandora v.1.5.3 on hist Xoom WiFi and it was working fine.  So I uninstalled the current version (1.5.5), installed v1.5.3, and I'm now listening to Pandora on my Xoom WiFi while I type this!  "Happy Face!"

Pandora 1.5.3 can be found at http://wwww.mediafire.com/?ujm0oel9eis9rfe (Needs 'Unknown Sources' checked in Settings -> Applications).

I hope this saves someone a little of the Googling it took me to find this otherwise obvious workaround.
