    LBE privacy guard says not compatible for my xoom in the play store.

    Is there an alternative thats just as good? i was using Droid Wall to block apps from the net, but id like to block them from accessing other info if possible.

    Sorry for the late response

    But thats the very tutorial i used to root.

    Ive done it about 5 times trying to see which i like more.

    Part of me likes HC better than ICS...was getting lag and freezing issues with ICS..

    why?
    hi all,

    since that thread is not dead yet I throw my few cents here and ask you about rooting UK 3g xoom MZ601 3.2 hc....

    does anyone managed to root UK 3G 3.2 xoom?
    how do they work now?
    what kernel is better for MZ601 3G?
    is improvement in webbrowsing (flash websites) noticeable ? multitasking speed improved?
    are there any issues with device?

    read on forum that rooting with wrong images can damage wifi and since my xoom looses wifi connection I wonder if can that be worsed?

    another thing I found was bootlooping, in which your phone boots, reboots, boots, reboots, in an endless cycle that can happen after rooting and need to mention that I had self-reboots issues with my xoom until I returned it for repairing, was experiencing 3 - 20 self-reboots during the day usually while watching online videos
    and sometimes while web browsing (dolphin hd) and while pdf reading.....

    most of the threats are about wifi and not about 3g
    or say:
    for 3.2, you will lose wifi on 3.2.1, these is for us wifi & 3G xooms ( and my one is 3.2 but UK not US - confusing )


    Now I have my xoom back from service and my warranty is almost over so I think about rooting as loading flash or java websites is slow, watching live video streams is slow . . .
    but considering my previous issues I would welcome recommendation on what to do and what not from you, more experienced users....

    sorry for long post ...

    Thanks
    &
    Good Luck!

    Just don't set your OC to "on boot" until you're sure it's not OC'ed to high.
