PLEASE READ
Cornea, the universal toolkit tool I promised following XOOT's discontinuation, has been released! It's free, and tons better. Please check it out rather than downloading XOOT. Click here to go to the thread page. Thanks.

(XOOT will still be available for download if you want it for whatever reason.


Bugs
XP not supported properly. This will not be fixed. It has been fixed in the new version of XOOT, Cornea.


Changelog
1.1 (CURRENT VERSION)
XP x86 compatibility! (not working) :P
Compressed file changed from RAR to ZIP so that users don't need WinRAR or equivalent to extract XOOT


1.0
Initial release of XOOT



Sorry that this isn't in Android Development, I have less than 10 posts and I can't wait to share this...

XOOT is the easiest tool you can use to root your XOOM! It works for XP 32bit, Vista, 7 and 8 flawlessly. In fact, it does more than root. Here's the grand list:
  • Bootloader lock/unlock (WIPES DATA)
  • Root your XOOM (thanks solarnz)
  • Convert from a region XOOM to a GED XOOM
  • Flash non-flashable boot animations
  • Includes ADB and FASTBOOT for all your Android developing needs!
  • Brick your device if you are ruthless and unplug it during the progress.

    HONG KONG USERS SHOULD STAY AWAY. PLEASE?
    IF YOU'VE DONE OTA UPDATES READ THE POST ON THE SECOND PAGE ABOUT THE GREEN ANDROID OF DEATH.

XOOM ADB drivers are required to benefit from XOOT! Please download them and install.

Hope you guys benefit from this. It definitely works because I used it to root, flash recovery, unlock bootloader and flash boot animations.

If you're amazing at ADB, try adding more commands! All ya need is a bit of batch programming experience. If you plan to just use this and enjoy, OK! Just open and go!

FAQ included in the ZIP.

Please read: Now that XP compatibility has been added, XOOT is harder (but still easy) to open.
If you are running XOOT on Windows XP or Server 2003, rename choice_xp.exe to choice.exe. Then proceed.
If you are using XOOT on a version higher than XP, open XOOT.bat without renaming Choice_XP.exe


Have fun with your XOOM!
PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ISSUES CAUSED

Region/GED Xooms
A region XOOM is one that's not in the US. It may have changes made by Motorola, and get updates slower. This is why UK Xooms have SD card read/write officially.

A GED XOOM is a XOOM that's in the US. It's known as a Google Experience Device, and cannot be modified my Motorola. This is why US Xooms have SD card readonly officially - they are not allowed to add the hacked mod to enable write.

I read this on a website. Sorry but I can't find out which one, I will give you the URL link soon...

Be careful with your Hong Kong Xoom. They seem to have different partition set-ups and have been known to lose (misplace) 28 gb of their internal storage when rooted/modded without a particular patch made by solarnz. Have you seen this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1203128 ?
