    Lightbulb [ROOT TUT] Root your Telstra Xoom from 3.1 Stock without any custom recovery

    Hi everyone, I am writing this post because there is currently no information on rooting the Telstra specified Motorola Xoom from the Stock 3.1 and still keeping 3G (the latest 3.1 update, not the problematic one). I just write it over here and I take no credit for this.

    With this root, you don't have to flash any custom recovery at all.

    1/. Ensure that you have the Motorola Xoom STOCK 3.1, N_01.83.35P, H.6.3-25-5 or you can move back to stock, flash everyback from developer.motorola.com/products/software/MZ601_H.6.1-38-9_Telstra_Australia.zip/ and receive the official OTA update.

    2/. Ensure that you have already UNLOCKED your Motorola Xoom bootloader. This will wipe your device out so be very careful.

    3/. Download this file, which contain the new unsecured boot, su and superuser.apk file telstraxoomroot.zip

    4/. Enable USB Debugging on your Xoom (Settings --> Applications --> Development --> USB Debugging)

    5/. Open command prompt, write the following code:
    Code:
     adb reboot bootloader
    6/. Now your AU Xoom will reboot, continue to type this:
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot newtelstraboot.img 
    fastboot flash reboot
    7/. Wait for your AU Xoom to reboot to HC. Open your command prompt, type this:

    Code:
     
    adb shell su /system/bin
    adb shell ln -s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su
    adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    adb push Superuser.apk /system/app
    Now you got root on your Australian Xoom from Telstra with working 3G. Cheers

    Welcome to the forum.Nice write up but why wouldn't you want a recovery? I know you can fastboot the CWM recovery, so you are able to flash kernels, roms and themes?

    Oh, flashing without a custom recovery is not the main thing I intended :P. It is because there isn't any specific information on how to root the Telstra Xoom with the new 3.1 update. That's the reason why I made this tutorial.

    To everyone who need custom recovery, after rooting with my tutorial above, go to Market, install Rom Manager and then flash ClockworkMod Recovery.

    No problem but they shouldn't flash just any recovery from Rom Manager, in our experience here the recoveries in the 4.X.X.X won't allow you to see your sdcard. The link I'm providing also doesn't back up the sdcard, just internal storage, thus saving quite a bit of room on the sdcard.
