    Prerequisites
    Instructions
    1. Your data will be totally wiped! If you have Nandroids, TitaniumBackups, or anything of any value on your internal storage, copy them to your microsd or computer! They will be gone forever! Your microsd card is the only safe haven on your Xoom during this process.
    2. Put TWRP 2.6.3.0 BigPart version and your desired rom on your microsd card.
    3. Reboot into recovery. Flash TWRP BigPart.
    4. Reboot into recovery. Go into wipe menu. Select "Advanced Wipe". Check
      • Dalvik Cache
      • System
      • Cache
      • Data
      • Internal Storage
      and wipe them. Don't reboot just yet.
    5. Go into install. Recovery should show your microsd storage by default. If not, using the navigation panel, navigate to root then go into "sdcard". You can now follow the steps below, starting with Flash omni-4.4.2-201XXXXX-wingray-HOMEMADE_XXXX.zip.
  • If updating from older ROM version in this thread, you don't have to wipe anything
  • If updating from an different rom, wipe

Tips'N'Tricks
Show Developer and Performance settings
  • Go to the settings menu, and scroll down to "About phone." Tap it.
  • Scroll down to the bottom again, where you see "Build number."
  • Tap it seven (7) times, and *poof*, you've got the developer settings back.

Reduces lagging
  • Overclock to 1.4Ghz (Performance menu)
  • Decrease animation duration to .25 (Developer options menu)

Thank you, and happy new year.
One question. If I am changing to this ROM from the wingray one do I have to wipe everything or just davlik and cash?

Thanks very much to the developers.

It's working great! . Didn't worked out of the box. Had to set the APN to my provider.. It shows 3G, not H besides the radio icon, but the speed i get is the usual from my provider (vIvo Brazil)

I did a dirty flash over the Omnirom 4.4.2 Wingray rom. Only wiped cache and dalvik. I didnt flash google apps or su again. It's all working well. I keep using Art runtime. Thanks again.
