Ok this thread is missing some things.

* Fastboot OEM Unlock Wipes your Tablet. backup first!

* The green bot of !

there is one problem that exists with all xoom roots/cwm hacks.

I had this problem as well as a bunch of other people when trying to flash CWM.
If these files are present after a OTA update then your xoom when entering recovery will show the green android robot with a explanation point instead of CWM.

if you have applied a official ota then you have one of the following two files on your xoom that will prevent CWM from working.


If you already have root and your not trying to root with CWM then you can fix this issue with the following commands before flashing the recovery.img

adb remount
adb shell rm /system/recovery-from-boot.p
adb shell rm /system/etc/

If you do not already have root on your xoom when you get the green bot of ! then you have to do the following with the stock moto files for your device (from moto dev).

This Wipes your Xoom also

fastboot oem unlock
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot -w
fastboot reboot

after your xoom boots back up and goes into the setup screens skip setup and enable usb debugging. ( do not install a ota update! )

and restart xoot to root the stock rom.
