    Upgrading OS for Rooted 4g Xoom Tablet

    I rooted my android device for the first time a while back. I'm still kind of getting used to the new fun things I can do with it now. I'm now getting a consistent pop-up though asking me to upgrade to Android version 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), I'm currently on Android version 4.0.4. Before I do this I have a couple of questions for those of you out there with more experience and knowledge on this than me.

    1) It is my understanding from reading some other posts that if I run the update through them it will overwrite my rooting, and I'll have to re-root the tablet. Is this correct?

    2) Assuming that (#1) is correct, can anyone point me to a good, safe, place to download the update version 4.1.2, with steps for the proper way to run it without loosing your root access and all the data on your tablet?

    Thank you in advance for any help. As I said I'm still learning a lot of this process at this point.

    No you cannot

    Do not try to install the OTA update to your Xoom, it will fail.

    You have two choices

    Unroot/restore to stock build then run updates
    Or run/install a custom rom build
