    Hey guys.. firstly kudos on the guide. I had a stupid question to ask though. I've got an MZ604 (UK) version WIFI only xoom. Its running android version 3.0.1 and some 2.6.36.3Tiamat_Xoom-v1.3.-blah Kernel, Build number H.6.2-24.1301017438 .. <--- while its already rooted and overclocked using SetCPU this has got to be the most lagged android I've ever used..it was so choppy not just while watching videos but generally moving between menus a very obvious lag which made me wanna just chuck it out the window. However after reading all the great ICS reviews I have hope yet to make it 'crazy fast' as somebody put it in one review.

    my question is.. If i was to update from this already rooted flashed device to ICS 4.0.3 do i just follow this guide from the end of the rooting section since I wouldnt need to do that all over again? or does this guide apply to stock devices?

    thanks in advance for any help you could offer

    1) Download “Custom ICS” and “Gapps” and place it in your External MicroSD Card (DO NOT EXTRACT THESE FILES)
    Choose Your Ice Cream Sandwich Flavor here -->>> Team EOS << >> Team Rogue << >> Others <<



    2) Now do Nandroid First to back up your current Stock Rooted A
    ndroid OS version 3.0.1

    Reboot your device by holding Volume Up + Power.
    - Then 3 seconds after you see the "Motorola logo", hit Volume Down.


    You should now see "Android Recovery" at the top left corner.
    - Hit Volume Up to boot/enter into recovery.

    In the recovery navigate to "back up and restore" choose back up, follow the instruction. Once complete..reboot.

    Once in the xoom home screen, use file.manager to navigate to your external sdcard "external1" and you will see folder name "clockworkmod" in that folder will have another folder "backup" and you will find the file. Copy that file, that is Nandroid file and keep a copy safe on your pc.

    [HOW TO] Use ClockWorkMod Recovery (backup/restore/update.zip)

    Dont use ROM Manager

    Once done

    3) Navigate to "install zip from sdcard"
    - "Choose zip from sdcard",
    - then select the Custom ICS.zip file that you had downloaded/placed in External MicroSDcard earlier and flash it
    -
    then select the Gapps and flash it
    - Reboot and Enjoy!

    awesome, thank you. I'm a complete noob to all this so just to make absolutely sure, I can skip the following steps

    Open command prompt in Windows Start icon (in search textfield type in cmd and press enter)
    Once command prompt pop up,type:

    cd C:\SDK_tools
    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-Tiamat-R4c-100611-1150-cwm.img

    Once you have verification on your device that this has been flashed:
    - Reboot your device by holding Volume
    Up + Power.
    - Then 3 seconds after you see the "Motorola logo", hit Volume Down.


    You should now see "Android Recovery" at the top left corner.


    - Hit Volume
    Up to boot/enter into recovery.


    In "Android Recovery",
    - wipe cache,
    - wipe factory data,
    - go to advance and wipe dalvik cache all within the recovery.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I can skip all this and just go ahead to selected the google apps file etc?

    Also is the backup using that clock something app necessary ? as in is it just a recovery plan in case something goes wrong? cause i dont wish to save anything otherwise considering how slow and lagged this xoom is i dont know if it was the initial flash I did that screwed it or if it was as such by default.

    thanks a million again! you've been very helpful

    Reboot your device by holding Volume Up + Power.
    - Then 3 seconds after you see the "Motorola logo", hit Volume Down.
