How to Root Motorola Xoom

Motorola Xoom has been one of the most interesting tablet of 2011, for the features it provides and its uniqueness of being the first tablet with a dual processor. Now, for all those that were waiting for this update, it is finally here. The Motorola XOOM has a root method available for it. Koush, the developer of the ROM Manager App,came up with a easy root method.  This, however, is just the beginning and ROM Manager is not yet available as of now.

Nevertheless, if a user wants to get a started on the Root, the following is what must be done:

  • Download the XOOM root zip.
  • Unzip the package.
  • Put your junk in the box.
  • adb reboot bootloader (skip the next 3 steps if you have already unlocked via fastboot)
  • fastboot oem unlock
  • wait for reboot
  • adb reboot bootloader
  • fastboot flash boot rootboot.img
  • fastboot reboot
  • wait for reboot
  • adb remount
  • adb shell push su /system/bin
  • adb shell ln –s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su
  • adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
  • adb push Superuser.apk /system/app

The SD Card slot will be locked out once these steps are completed. However, this does not mean that one can use a custom recovery. It will get enabled when Google, Motorola or the developer community enables it.
