I've tried searching all over for an answer to this question...

What the heck is an ODM fuse? Why does it read 1?

(For those who have no idea what I'm talking about - this is displayed on the screen when entering the stock recovery menu.)

At first I was skeptical about unlocking and rooting my XOOM because I had though that maybe this was something to help Motorola identify rooted devices.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

It's just a quick mode selection. I can't remember the numbers off the top of my head but one is for recovery, another number is for fastboot, and another number is for RSD. I think it's something like:

1: Recovery
2: Fastboot Protocol
3: RSD Protocol

(but I could be wrong with the order, can't remember).

It's the way the bootloader works. Commands sent to bootloader are stored in the ODM fuse for instructions on which partition to boot from, IIRC 0 is system, 1 is recovery, and 2 is fastboot. Certain boot modes are verbose and will display this, such as recovery, others are not and won't display it, such as system boot.
