Need Help
I completed the entire procedure without an issue..
fastboot oem unlock - OK
fastboot flash recovery recovery-solarnz-100611-1150.img - OK
Rooting the Xoom with Universal Root - OK
When I reboot the Xoom after this it stays on the Motorola Dual Core Screen and nothing happens...

What is wrong?
How do I fix this?

Thanks
Guy

Are you still having problems with this or have you resolved it?
Hopefully it's all good...

I have yet to root my device which is a 3g + wifi device at the moment with not UMTS connected. I couldn't root because the flash recovery refused to work always the error of :cann't load. i have checked repeatedly the SP no syntex errors. now the xoom runs at the moment on HC 3.2 for Orange. from what i understood there is a security thing so i need to restart to an earlier ver so i can reboot everything and so i can actully use flash and finally root it. i tried about everything. i am on this for more then 8 hours trust me i've tried. I really have no idea what to do, the device is currently unlocked for when i relock it it goes to semi brick and i must unlock it. the main problem is that i can't load any! image file using the fastboot flash methood. any ideas? thanks

I believe this may be incorrect. I restored to stock and then accepted the OTA to 3.2 but still found the files in question under /system. I didn't want to risk anything so I simply restored back to stock and proceeded on without issue. I really don't think any of the ota updates are needed if you have the microsd adapter to load your roms/zips onto the sdcard via your pc before you begin the process. Clockword Recovery will see the sdcard regardless of whether or not Honeycomb will.

Either way, thanks for the guide. Especially including that quoted bit about those ota updates. I followed through your guide until I got clockword recovery flashed and from there I just did a nandroid and flashed over SteadyHawkin's CM9 rom with no issues at all. Thanks for putting this together and helping me free my device

@yotamleo11, I'm sorry that you are struggling with this. It is possible that, as kofrad says in the post below yours, that you don't need to allow those ota updates once you've flashed back to stock. Just make sure that you have your command window opened from within the folder where you have the image files you wish to flash.

Keep at it. You will get it.
