    Idiots guide to rooting

    Can anyone post an idiots guide to rooting my UK Wifi only Xoom please, I've looked across the net and seen any simple, all seems rather long winded and risky, when I rooted my HTC Desire it was pretty simple so was hoping it would be the same for the Xoom?

    Anyone else rooted a UK WiFi only Xoom without any problems?

    We have a new guide, any xoom and update. Give it a look.
    [Root] Universal Xoom Root - ANY XOOM ANY UPDATE
    You will still need adb installed along with all the moto drivers. You can use Easy ADB unless you plan on developing for android.

    To use the guide I provide you have to already have sdcard support. Make sure of that before you start.

    I thought we had a member from the UK that posted an awesome root guide? However, I can't find it at the moment. Anyone else able to find it? If so, maybe we need to get it stickied?

    What do you mean by SD Card support as such, I can put my SD Card in and move files from it to the internal storage, not sure I can write to the SD Card from the Xoom though?
