But why do we have to do the remount fix thing?
Thank you for your work!!!
Hello, I'm Italian as well with a TIM branded Xoom 2. Was yours TIM, too?
What I don't understand is if just having the Xoom 2 rooted we can gain access to an European upgrade that is not accessible by a branded tablet. Is this the case?

If not, given that I have not found updated custom ROMs here on XDA for the Xoom 2, I cannot understand what is the advantage of having the root at the very moment!

What am I missing? Many thanks!

Cool re

Hello,
Yes it was tim branded.
It is already updated to the lastest build. Like the european debranded one.
I need root for many things. The first is titanium backup.
However root is always the first step.
Waiting for bootloader unlock so to have custom recovery and install moded firmwares and kernels to get the best from the tablet.
Do you like your xoom2?

Yes I do like my Xoom 2, even if I was disappointed by Honeycomb, with more troubles than Gingerbread running in my Galaxy Note! In particular I cannot stay without Opera browser that is wonderful and smooth on the Note and instead crashes on the Xoom 2 using Flash...

On the Xoom 2 Opera is much more better than the stock browser and Dolphin, but as you access flash sites it immediately crashes! Disappointing...

Also, I'm not sure we have the latest firmware with TIM: we have version 0.268.4 but I read somebody in Germany and Australia got 0.281.4. Is this something we miss??

Last but not least after having been accustomed to the Note fantastic display, the one from the Xoom 2 is not comparable! I miss the contrast, quality, definition and never dirty gorilla glass... Anyway as a matter of fact this is one of the best tablet currently in the marketplace... Just Asus Transformer Prime is better but it was very faulty till a few weeks ago....

Hi, guys. I rooted successfully. UK wifi only xoom 2.
Could you tell me, can I install ICS from US version here somehow?
And is there some option how to perform recovery? Just afraid that I'll brick device after some expirements.

The are no custom recoveries or ROM's yet for the Xoom 2 as we still have a locked bootloader and no bootstrap yet.

It seems that the remount fix link is down again. Besides, can someone explain me (noob here) why do we have to do this remount fix thing?

I belive its during the Root process and some Xoom's stop half way in. I'm not that sure as I have faced the issue. And I can't get hold of the download again so I have removed it from the OP until we get it back.
