    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 2.8.6.0 BigPart version and your desired rom on your microsd card.
    3. Reboot into recovery. Flash TWRP BigPart.

      • 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-5.1.1-XXX-wingray.zip.

  • If updating from older ROM version in this thread, you don't have to wipe anything

Issues

  • HW Videodecoding not working
  • HDMI output not working
  • BT audio not working
  • Microphone not working
  • ...

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.

And uploaded.

This ROM is an alpha release, so definitely backup your old ROM before flashing.
I had to rewrite the audio library from scratch as our old one just wasn't compatible anymore with 5.1. Lots of work....
It's still not finishes so there are probably some audio issues.

For the moment the biggest bug is that video playback is not working, but I have a pretty good idea what the issue is.

Also Google Photos crashes with "java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No config chosen". I am pretty sure that we also had this error on omni-4.4 and fixed that. Need to check old commits.

In total it feels pretty smooth with one exception. Somehow opening the App Drawer takes a lot of time. Need to check if the annoying animation can be deactivated.

As 5.1 uses ART instead of Dalvik the boottime after an update is pretty bad. Up to 10min depending on how many apps are installed.

I just flashed the new build and got the same fail message, but the tablet booted fine and most items are working as expected.

This is awesome.
Now, I just hope that camera and video works.
The tablet is used by my parents for video calling (Skype etc.) and watching YouTube videos.

If I want to upgrade from omniROM 4.4.2 (February 2014) to 5.1.1, do I not wipe anything at all?

4.4.2 is laggy (as reported by my parents) on that tablet.

Great work

So glad there's still xoom love. As it's an alpha issues are expected. Just reporting that I can't seem to install any gapps package. Wiped everything first and formated data to start with a clean device before copying zip files and flashing. Keeps saying "Error executing updater binary in zip '/emmc/Download/p75xx-gapps-L-5-6-15.zip" Thanks again for the great work and I look forward to future updates.

Spoke too soon. Not sure how but I managed to get it to work.

Others have posted with the same gapps report. When this happened to me, I did another clean install and flashed the stock package from http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/tk-gapps-t3116347. It flashed perfectly and seems to be working fine.

I have a WiFi only Xoom, but I've never heard of WinGray. Is that all WiFi Xooms? I actually won this Xoom in a Twitter contest. It would be awesome if I could keep it going.
