Exclamation Wifi Only rooted, XP PRO CAUTION

Wifi only, root done. I had to run it twice, the second time leave it unplugged for the steps that worked the first time.

I had trouble with losing command prompt window focus after step 5, so unknowingly some of my steps didn't run the first time.

XP PRO (and others maybe?) WORD OF CAUTION!!!! You may have to quickly "refocus" the command prompt windows that pop up AS SOON AS THE POP UP, so that the commands work. Recommend closing all other programs before running this as well.

Great work! Thanks!~

This made me chuckle.

But I just wanted to post this because I was having serious issues using this tool, I had used it once but soft bricked my device, had to restore it back to HRI39, then upgraded OTA to HRI66. Then downloaded the most current tool and for the life of me could not get it to work.

Long story of frustration and tears short, I had to register a free account w/ MotoDev (motorolas developers portal) and download the Motorola 5.0 drivers to get SDK and this tool to recognize my device.

I'm a rooted happy camper once again. Love this tool, thank you!

EDIT: As a side note a lot of issues I was experiencing also is i'm using Windows 7 64bit. And , now I know, you should right click whatever it you're running and select 'Run as Administrator'. That cleared up a lot of heartache.
Rooted T-Mobile Galaxy S4 SGH-M919 Wicked V10

Rooted VZW 4G Motorola Xoom - OmniRom Wingray 4.4.2
Logitech Revue w/ Camera - Google TV 2.0 Honeycomb

If I helped in anyway please feel free to send a Thanks my way, it's appreciated.

I just rooted my Xoom since I posted last so I didn't get to read all the new posts. I also used the No unroot package (2nd link) in the OP. I had two Xooms coming in the mail and one came in today (yay!)

Anyway, I see the SuperUser app and everything went great. No errors. The only thing I don't understand is why it doesn't pick up my 32gb microSD card inserted. Any ideas?

Thanks for constantly walking me through. Your help is much appreciated. My hacking is rusty to say the least (last was a PSP and a G1). Lol.
