Root for Wi-Fi Only Motorola XOOM Now Available


Root Your Wi-Fi Only Motorola Xoom!

Ok, for the sake of the story, I'll pretend to be surprised here. The always reliable gang over at XDA Developers have managed to release a root method for the Wi-Fi Only Motorola XOOM tablet. This is good news for those users who have bricked their XOOMs using the standard method. Please remember, unlocking the XOOM's bootloader (required for rooting) will wipe your device.

That being said, if your ready to begin hacking your dual core monster, instructions below. This does  requires ADB Commands but nothing too difficult. Still this method is recommended for experienced users familiar with the rooting process.
