Im trying to unlock and root my xoom but keep hitting a snag at step 4. Ive unlocked it, several times at time point. Im trying to follow the green bot of ! instructions that were posted but the cmd prompt wont let me flash the boot boot.img or any of the next step. I downloaded the original mz604 image from the motodev site and unzipped it into the platform-tools folder. the cmd prompt says error: cannot load boot.img
Im not sure what im missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I have problem after OTA,
I had a rooted xoom 4.0.3 then the OTA came and I installed it, now I have SU icon and it seems as if my apps get root access but they dont, so SU is lying :-/
I can get to "Android system recovery <3e> " and it only has 4 options:
apply update from USB drive
I dont want to wipe my xoom, doing it for the first time was difficult enough
I just want my xoom to be rooted without having to wipe... Is there anything I can do?
BTW, because I do not have root, I cant remove/rename this :install-recovery.sh
You have a choice of ROMs--I love the EOS ICS nightlies. Go to the development section and look for the thread for your specific Xoom model. Wifi only is wingray, 4G is stingray, and there are a couple of others. You will need to download the newest ROM, and the Gapps package (Google apps) which you flash immediately after the ROM in recovery. You will need to wipe data 1st, so that you don't have conflicts.
I want to keep updated with the Motorola releases. I saw that the OTA updates can have some problems with rooted devices.
I use the CyanogenMOD 7 in my Galaxy5 and it´s awsome, but I had never tried any custom ROM in my Xoom. I'm from Brazil and Motorola has not released ICS for our devices yet, so I flashed the US 3.0.1 Stock ROM and upgraded to ICS 4.0.4. Does it worth to use a custom ROM in Xoom, since the original is great?
