    usb modems

    Hello to all,
    Im a new user of the xoom with just 10 that i have had it.
    I have the motorola xoom wifi only version. Now with the 3.1 update use of usb peripherals have been made possible. So can we also use a usb modem into it?

    Just an idea and why not?

    Thanks on advance

    Might just be that nobody knows. Might be interesting to try it and find out. Might check and see if one of the guys at work still have one to try - after I get my adapter.

    I don't think the wireless adapter in the Xoom is capable of interfacing with a modem. The majority if the USB support is focused on input and storage peripherals.

    If you have one, try it. I wouldn't spend money on one though.
    Keep on Xoomin'

    I found this on internet. You can try:
    Very comparable to rooting the device. Extract the img dossier from the ZIP above, and place it inside the comparable folder as your adb and fastboot binaries. Then, run this:

    adb reboot bootloader – (reboots into the bootloader)
    fastboot flash boot rootboot.usbdisk.img – (which lots the brand new boot.img onto the device)
    fastboot reboot- (Reboots the device)
    Finally — using adb or root explorer, you would like to differ your /and so on/vold.fstab with the assistance of collectively with this line to it: dev_mount usbdisk /mnt/usbdisk car /models/platform/tegra-ehci

    This tells VOLD the place to mount the device, when it’s plugged in. After the change, you would like to reboot. The altered boot.img offers a folder noted as /usbdisk, in order that method ought to you be a half of a USB thumb pressure using the cable I associated to above, it is going to automount the thumb pressure and also you will be able to access info. I examined this with an HP 125W FAT32 8GB thumb pressure, and it labored with out a drawback. The exclusively caveat I am going to be able to imagine of is that YMMV on thumb drives – a fewmay require morepersistent than the Xoom can provide.
