    Great find!!!! However there is a missing piece of instructions? Is it possible to add this to the instructions "You need the motodev4.9.0 driver for the pc to see the XOOM installed" in order for adb to recognize it . Once this is installed adb will see the XOOM with no issues.

    I did not know about any drivers mine worked without. Since it is not Windows I guess? I have heard that as long as you have Windows Media Player 11 you are good. No?

    hum....weird. I have windows 7 64 bit and it came with windows media player 11. Same thing happened to me with my droid. I needed to install the usb drivers as well in order for me to get adb and RSD Lite to work when I rooted it. Oh well just was wondering if it could be added so that people know when they try to root using adb. Thanks for bringing us this video as it does put a visual aspect to rooting the xoom.... Now I cannot wait to get my 4G LTE Modem......

    EDIT: actually my win 7 PC saw the XOOM fine and I was able to load up my music and some movies but adb would not see it until I loaded up the Motorola 4.9.0 drivers.
