Default [Q] Motorola Xoom - no su access after root

Hi all. I am new to rooting. Recently decided to root my Motorola Xoom WiFi tablet, which has android 4.1.2 installed. I went through the Universal root method described in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1242241 and everything went well...with one exception - I still have no su access. No clue how to proceed or where the problem might be...Any help appreciated.

Sounds like you didn't flash the xoom root zip file. Make sure that the xoom root zip file is on your sd card and boot back into clockwork recovery, choose to install from a zip file and choose that zip file to flash it. After it's done flashing you should be good to go.

and have you installed one of both apk - supersu - or - superuser -
