But for those (like me) who aren't super confident in their skills in this area, what steps are not mentioned above? Obviously we'd need to reboot to fastboot (power button + volume up). Then once we're there, we just use the commands above in adb? No additional reboots/remounts/etc involved here? In other words, no steps missing above that might not be obvious to some users?
Actually you will be using the fastboot cmd not ADB (adb reboot bootloader to get into fastboot), totally different thing. Just follow the commands motorola has and your all set (no rebooting, just one after the other). When you get to the oem lock part, use the volume controls on the xoom to choose yes to continue....

Thing you have to remember is you have to be in the recovery which is what the adb command does in order to use the fastboot commands. For windows anyways. I just tried fastboot commands from the desktop and the cmd prompt sits there.
