Well, that was certainly fast. Although,
having an unlocked bootloader


I'm sure helped this process just a tad bit. With the news coming to use
courtesy of Koush


, the
Motorola XOOM


now has a root method available for it. Although
ROM Manager


updates will come at a later time, you can use the guide listed below to get a head start on things:


  • 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

Due to the SD Card slot being locked out at this time, a custom recovery cannot be used but one does exist for whenever it gets enabled for use. Be it by Google, Motorola or the developer community. Until then, just enjoy your freshly rooted
Motorola XOOM


and if you should so need some help; hit us up in the Android Central forums. [
