    Lightbulb How to: Manually Update Motorola XOOM to HRI66 (Android 3.0.1)




    We were just handed the Motorola XOOM update file for HRI66, so let’s get you manually updated!

    Download Link [Mirror]

    Instructions:
    *Huge thanks to @Koush for putting the original instructions together. We just tweaked them slightly to give the adb newbies a chance. Enjoy!
    1. Download the .zip file from above and place it in your Android SDK Tools folder.
    2. Rename it to update.zip.
    3. Open a command prompt from within your SDK Tools folder.
    4. Type: adb push update.zip /sdcard/update.zip
    5. Type: adb shell
    6. Type: su
    7. Type: cd /cache
    8. Type: mkdir recovery
    *You may get a message saying it already exists. This is fine.
    9. Type: cd recovery
    10. Type: echo ‘–update_package=CACHE:/recovery/update.zip’ > command
    11. Type: cat /sdcard/update.zip > update.zip
    12. Type: reboot recovery
    13. Your XOOM should boot into recovery and update to 3.0.1.


    Extra stuff:

    How to boot into recovery:
    1. Power off XOOM.
    2. Power back on and when the “DUAL CORE” screen pops up, tap the volume down button.
    3. Use the volume down button until to you see “Android Recovery” displayed.
    4. Press the volume up button.
    5. A green Android should appear on your screen.
    6. Press Power and volume up (in that order) and you will enter recovery.
    Still no luck on getting the device to accept the update file though. Working on it!
    How to re-gain root access after the update (if lost):
    1. From a command prompt, type the following commands.
    adb remount
    adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    2. Reboot. Have fun!


    Update: Koush has posted update instructions that appear to be working for most people.


    Thanks to Droid-Life

    I'll be loading it up when I get off as well. Thanks Wicked!

    Question-

    Are we good to copy and paste commands in full?
    Is this part of the command, "> command"

    Yes you are creating a file called 'command' with that information in it.

    Do you have to be rooted in order to manually do this update?

    Why not wait for the OTA? I am. This was made specifically for people who can't get the OTA but I don't think you have to be rooted to install it.
