NOTE: This is for users who did the BigPart Repartitioning (probably for flashing a 4.4.2 ROM) on their Xoom and for any reason want to go back to normal.


What You Need:
-TWRP 2.6.3.0 touch recovery from @runandhide05
-TWRP 2.6.3.0 BigPart touch recovery from @runandhide05 (if you're reading this you should already have this installed no need to download)
-Your Favorite Standard Partition ROM

Instructions:
1. Reboot Into Recovery (You should have already installed TWRP2.6.3.0 BigPart)
2. Flash the non-BigPart TWRP 2.6.3.0 (Do not Reboot)
3. Tap the Home Icon
4. Wipe > Advanced > WIPE Davlik, System, Cache, Data and Internal Storage
5. Tap Home
6. Reboot into Recovery (Ignore NO OS and Ignore SuperSU)
7. Booting the nonBigPart Recovery will take a while just be patient.
8. Ignore the “Password” screen > Tap Home
9. Wipe > Format Data > Type “yes”
10. Wipe > Advanced > WIPE System and Cache
11. Tap Home
12. Reboot Into Recovery (Again Ignore No OS and SuperSU)
13. Mount > Sdcard, Cache, and Data should be checked; System should be unchecked. Tap the box next to System, make sure that it mounts without any errors, and then unchecked it again. If you've made it this far, you’re back to the standard partitions.
14. Now you can Flash your favorite Standard Partition ROM and corresponding GApps.

Still in 2020 I want t thank you for this great guide for reverting back to stock! I had my xoom laying around unused and want to give to someone, but the best thing is to have it in stock conditions.
Thanks!
