So bad here we told you about rooting the Motorola Xoom, then found out it may not be a great idea based on how Motorola may deal with your warranty and upgrade status to 4G. Now that we know the Flash 10.2 update is here, it was announced that rooted or unlocked Xooms would need to be rolled back and relocked or unrooted to get the update installed properly. Like we’re surprised there right?
How do you go about that? Well, someone detailed some fine instructions for everyone to follow, just in case.
Note: This will wipe your Xoom
- You’re going to need to have the Android SDK installed. You can download it here.
- Download the official HRI39 build from Motorola here.
- Unzip the files in MZ600_HRI39.zip and move or copy them to the /platform-tools folder in your SDK folder.
- Connect your Xoom to your computer.
- Type adb reboot bootloader. Wait for it to reboot into the bootloader.
- Type the following commands, waiting for each to finish before continuing:
- fastboot flash boot boot.img
- fastboot flash system system.img
- fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
- fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
- fastboot erase cache
You’ve now successfully flashed your Xoom back to stock. Now it’s time to relock the device.
