Just got xoom wifi, if any help is needed with anything going feel free to contact me.

Working on complete system dump now
What are those files that you posted. It looks like one of them is the wifi driver but I am not sure what the other file is? Are these the stock wifi drivers pulled from the system?

Actually we were able to snag those from the Tiamat kernel. We have an updated vold.fstab that allows for USB mounting providing you add the scsi_scan_wait.ko module. (The instructions include both)

the root worked great. but i am not seeing the linpack/quadrant improvements. is it that this is purely a root and that this process doesn't install tiamat kernel?

It does install the Tiamat kernel. Might need SetCPU and bump up the clock speed.

I made a video for the WiFi version that follows the steps laid out by this thread as of March 28th. I captured both the Computer and Xoom screen simultaneously. There is a glare on my Computer side, I apologize for that, but none the less everything I type in is overlaid on top of the video and I dictate it as well. This is also performed on a Macbook Pro Leopard OS X. But besides the fastboot command which is fastboot-mac instead of fastboot for PC, there is no difference. I try to go over common hiccups that I have seen some users have come across as well in the video.

I am new at this.....What is worst case scenario? Would it brick my xoom?

How can I backup before I start? "To ensure I am in the safe side"
If I get stock in the middle can I exit the rooting process or I have to continue

Yes the windows version is only different when it comes to the commands in the fact that fastboot-mac is just fastboot. You do need to download fastboot and a couple other things not described in my video, all of these instructions are found on the first post to this thread by the OP.

If you do find it helpful I'd be more than happy to take a 'thanks' , but whether you do or not make sure above all you 'thank' the person who made this thread

Worst case is a $600 brick that you can't return. There is nothing to back up. Basically the difference between "root" and "stock" is lost once you do the flash the bootloader, just continue and enjoy
