    how do I root the 3.2 update on Verizon 3g Xoom?

    I was running the rooted stock 3.1 when I received the 3.2 OTA notification. So, I backed everything up with Titanium Backup and unrooted my xoom by going back to stock 3.0.1 (HRI39). First the OTA 3.1 came to me, then the OTA 3.2. Yeah, I was very glad untill I actually realized that I've lost my root, and honestly I can not find any instructions of rooting that brand new 3.2 Xoom Verizon 3g update. I do need root VERY badly, so guys,if any of you sees an instruction of rooting 3.2 on Verizon 3g Xoom - pleeeaseee be so kind to let me know.

    Just do a factory reset to put yourself on 3.1, then root from there again. You didn't make a nandroid before you did the update? You could always use that.

    There are instructions for rooted 3.1 to rooted 3.2 for the 3g.

    If he's on 3.2 a factory reset won't go back to 3.1, it will just be a clean install of 3.2.

    I thought a factory reset would take you back to whatever firmware you were on at time of purchase, out of the box.

    Nope. It just wipes your current software. That would really suck if it ttook you a version back.
