unfortunately, I can confirm this. I restored my xoom to stock 3.2 and tried to root using this method, it gets stuck at the afore mentioned step. (uploading xyz succeeds, running "xyz stage1" stops working at some point)

I'm sorry if what I said was not clear enough. I was talking about unlocking the bootloader which is the first step in rooting the classic xooms and DOES wipe everything (/data).
This method on the other hand does NOT unlock your xooms, though. This is "just" rooting your tablets (and installing busybox) but it will not unlock your bootloader. Therefore, this method will not wipe your data (at least not intentionally)

Hi,
I've successfully rooted my Xoom2 ME, works great except for one thing : cifs.
I've copy cifs.ko with files expert but
"adb remount : Operation not permitted"
"insmod /system/lib/modules/cifs.ko failed (Operation not permitted)"
"chmod 777 /system/lib/modules/ -> Bad mode"

I followed this guide http://sandbox.mindcrime.net/?p=75 and some other but I can't make it work :/

You cannot adb remount. Even if you do the remount steps I've outlined in the OP you will lose the ability to remount after the 2nd reboot. You need to manually remount via an adb shell.

I used this root technique on my xyboard 8.2, now i have been notified about the update but everytime I try to install the 3.2.2 update it fails. Any sugestions of a way to fix would be greatly appreciated.

Did you find a solution to your problem? What changes did you made with root ? Did you tried reset your device through Android recovery?
Can you also try extract the update file from where temporary saved? Maybe is possible to apply the update through recovery.
Those are very bad news ... is there a way to unroot the device?

I don't think this is caused by the root method as I have heard successful reports of rooted xyboard owners upgrading to 3.2.2 fine. But a user on this forum http://rootzwiki.com/topic/18963-upd...87#entry497187 has uploaded a zip version of the update, I'm assuming that you can flash this by the stock recovery somehow.

I was going to include instructions in my post @ rootzwiki on how to install this update through recovery in my post but I haven't been able to get recovery to mount the internal or an external storage(thumbdrive or sdcard with dongle).
I tried leaving the name alone and with it renamed to update.zip with no success.

Note: I pulled the files from my VZW xyboard 10.1. I can not confirm that it is the same update for all versions of the Xoom2/xyboard variants.

I think the problem is coming from the fact that I removed some verizon bloat. And when it tries to run the update it hangs on verifying a file called vcast-vzw-signed-fleming.apk . If someone could possibly upload a copy of this file i would appreciate it. it is from the /data/app folder.

Have a look for the file in a xyboard dump like this - http://www.mydroidworld.com/topic/10...ckUserAgent__1 :)
