    Have you moved all the things you need to the Tools folder and unzipped them? You'll also need to be sure you have the AdbWinApi.dll file in there or it won't work.

    To open a Command Prompt from the Tools folder you need to hold shift and right click on your mouse. Another option instead of doing that is to go into your system32 folder on your computer and find the cmd program. Make a shortcut and move it to you Tools folder within SDK and change the path to that folder.

    Here are the instructions I used last night - Hacks

    You want to install the usb drivers from this link - USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA - (I didn't install the charging drivers at the bottom)

    After you install the drivers to your computer, make sure your xoom is plugged in to your computer and reboot the xoom

    Get your SDK from here - Android SDK | Android Developers

    After the xoom comes back on, go to your start menu on your computer and type cmd and press enter to open a terminal session and type in adb devices and press enter and the following line should give you a string of letters and numbers about 16-17 characters long.

    I've got at least 2 guys at work that are ordering xooms monday and having them shipped to my house, lmao! I told them that you stayed up for 6 hours!! helping me get this thing right. Then another 2 hours this morning doing the OC and they were hooked! They don't even want to mess w/ their 1 week old thunderbolts anymore.

    That's Epic, the revolution has begun! It's allot of fun once you get the hang of it.
