freeky1,
It couldn't be easier, if you have root explorer it becomes a breeze.

  1. Move the new wpa_supplicant to your xoom either via sd card, dropbox or cable copy.
  2. turn off your wifi
  3. Navigated to system/bin
  4. click mount R/W (top left) so it changes to Mount R/O)
  5. Then long hold on the file and select rename put old on the end
  6. Copy/cut and paste the existing wpa_supplicant file somewhere safe
  7. Then copy the new file from the extracted zip
  8. Navigate back to system/bin
  9. click mount R/W (top left) so it changes to Mount R/O)
  10. Paste the new wpa file in
  11. Then long hold on the file and select view permissions
  12. check/tick all the boxes in the first two columns and the first 2 in the last column. (chmod 775)
  13. restart wifi

You should then see adhoc networks with a * infront of them.

This is the process I followed based on the post in this thread by mr_wrong_0 and it worked for me, I am no dev and I wont promise anything.

Or follow the instruction in the OP for using adb, but if you've rooted, you'll love the simplicity root explorer brings for a small cost

Hope that helps
