Android 6.0 Marshmallow coming to a Motorola Xoom!
This ROM is for Wingray (MZ604).

It is directly based on vanilla Google Android sources. Real AOSP.
This ROM is in early alpha stage.

Download

Download TWRP recovery

Download SuperSU

Download GApps

Prerequisites
  • TWRP 3.0.2-0 or higher

Instructions
  1. Flash TWRP 3.0.2-0 or higher.
  2. Reboot into recovery. Go into wipe menu. Select "Advanced Wipe". Check
    • Dalvik Cache
    • System
    • Cache
    • Data
    and wipe them. Don't reboot just yet.
  3. Go into install.
  4. Flash aosp-XXX.zip
  5. Optional: Flash GAPPS.zip (Recommended) (Note: This rom is not yet gapps compatible. Skip this step for now)
  6. Optional: Flash SuperSU.zip (Recommended)
  7. Reboot to System
  8. Check Settings->System Updates (Creates /sdcard/OpenDelta/FlashAfterUpdate)
  9. Copy SuperSu and Gapps zip to /sdcard/OpenDelta/FlashAfterUpdate so that they are automatically applied after OTA update. Else your system will be unusable after an OTA!

Issues
  • Camera not working
  • HW Videodecoding not working
  • HDMI output not working
  • BT audio not working
  • Headphones not working
  • Missing GApps support
  • ...

Tips'N'Tricks
  • Decrease Window/Transition animation scale and Animator duration scale to Animation off (Developer options menu)
  • If you install Gapps after the ROM has been booted for the first time you either need to wipe data or manually delete /data/system/users/0/runtime-permissions.xml and reboot. Without this Gapps will crash constantly. This is due to the new permissions-system in M.

thanks a lot again @Shishu
moving superfast now!

p.s. maybe how to flash the recovery from the other thread should be in the first post
unpack twrp.tar
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot reboot

keep system partition read only can be put to YES in twrp
the last step is confusing put gapps into opendelta folder even though they dont work?

p.s. i wonder whats with the gapps since it worked for me on the old rom for 2 days with banks gapps
but when flashing supersu i would get google services have stopped errors
before that i could download apps and update them - oh well will work with es explorer backups
of my apps for now (if only the rom would have a filemanager so one could install apps right away
without adb)

p.s.s is superfun to have marshmallow on a tablet from 2011 that came out with android 3.0 back then
this is fighting obsolescence at its best!

This sounds awesome, but I might hold off until the headphones and HW Video Decoding are functional.

Thanks!

ok now i got it working

via adb install:
es file explorer
vlc
trickster mod (overclocking to 1400 mhz)
sandmann (german app old xoom version)
quick boot (booting into recovery now works)
netflix (woow drm already working)

via es file explorer install apk:
busybox on rails (trickster mod needs a busybox)
ard mediathek (german app)
nova launcher
dolphin (turn jetpack off in settings)

p.s. tip take twrp backups often when installing stuff as its really fragile right now

This is just nuts! There's hardly any people left with a working Xoom, it's just really cool to see a 6.0 build for this device. I'm totally going to flash this, haven't turned my Xoom in a few months but I'd never get rid of it

Fastboot flashed TWRP 3.0, however the Xoom hangs on Entering Android Recovery Mode. Flashing back to TWRP 2.8.6.0-bigpart, and the device boots into TWRP as expected. Running CM 11.
Did I miss a step?

Ta!

I have gapps working on @Schischu Android 6.0.

You have to add this to build.prop.

ro.setupwizard.mode = disabled

If you want to avoid endless error notifications of setupwizard has stopped. and google play services has stopped.

i tried this following this guide
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1948558

setting it to the last line of build.prop then saving rebooting into recovery
and installing mentioned opengoggleapps from the thread i get
setup wizard and google play services has stopped and setup wizard has stopped errors

p.s. i can see it with adb shell and cd system less build.prop

You will add suport for 3g?
Maybe, but it way down the list.

Hi, why are you using elementalx-xoom kernel 2.0 if has 2.1? @Schischu

---------- Post added at 05:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:53 PM ----------



Thank you
It's based on 2.1, the version number is just wrong.

....and why do you propose SuperSu 2.50 and not 2.71?
Copy / Paste. Actually I have no idea up to which version works on xoom.

    Well, now that you say so... Maybe I should try something first on Marshmallow. I think I can compile a faster rom, in theory... I will show you my advances tomorrow. It depends on what I am able to compile today. I will send a message tomorrow with any news.

    Currently downloading Nougat sources :)

    Will surely be able to make a zip of it, but it will very surely fail.
    I will show the process to the XDA developer that is helping me with the kernel, because it will be a problem with the kernel.
    I will need to show him the logcat, the dmesg and I do not know how many logs more. xD
    Let's see if we can do something with it.

    Xoom is not abandoned yet!

    I compiled recovery for Cyanogen/Lineage for Xoom wifi yesterday.
    Still working on a Lineage OS Lollipop. Zip installs but bootloop.

    This is the recovery.

    In case you want to flash: fastboot flash recovery cm.img

    (Have a recovery.img backup you can flash in case it fails)
