The bad news is that after a week, the replacement case also has lost its ability to stand up. My conclusion is: don't bother with this case if you want to use it to prop up the Xoom :(

The rubbery strips on the case that should prop it up seem to be a major design flaw. Bad show, Motorola.

I just got the Motorola, case from heck, to work. I used foam double sided mounting tape. The kind used to hang light pictures on the wall without using nails.

2 x " x 1" strips put into each groove. The tape did not stick well to the textured case. I heated it a shot from a gas lighter (biggest trick in this hack). Zoom's metal case is highly polished and touches the strips in a line. It does not get glue on it and is not sticky removed from the groove.

I'm sure that the strips will need replacement but it takes about 1 minute and I got roll of tape from a $1 store for a couple of feet or tape.

Bad Asciii

Try to get the forward edge of tape to roll up the groove on the forward side but not high enough to touch the glass when the case is closed.

The 'correct' way to stand it up is as I attempted in my video; it just requires a case that's not faulty ;)

Hmm I was probably going to end up getting this case but from what I have seen of it I might stay away

Anyone else have any comments about this case?

If you aren't happy with the case you got. I got one for my XOOM 2 10.1 that has multiple viewing angles, and it also detaches and can be rotated to multiple vertical angles.
