So we have the commands from Moto:

fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot oem lock


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?

Here are the steps in order to use the files ( I will post the files in a couple minutes, uploading now)


1. Extract the files to the android-sdk/tools folder

2 open command prompt/terminal from the sdk tools folder

3. adb reboot bootloader

4 fastboot flash boot boot.img
5 fastboot flash system system.img
6 fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
7 fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
8 fastboot erase cache
9 fastboot oem lock

You are now relocked and back to stock (no root) If VZ or Moto will know that you were ever rooted I dont know.

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....

jmc2543 post is exactly what I did

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.

To make things easier I will be making a new post as to the steps and offering the files. This post has gotten so long it will be hard to find the files.
