    Cool Motorola Xoom locks up on boot sometimes (fix)

    I've had a problem recently where my Xoom would intermittently fail to restart properly after a shutdown. It would sit indefinitely on the Motorola logo and not advance to the honeycomb screen. I discovered the cause of the problem and wanted to let others know what happened in the event they ever experience the same issue.

    My micro SD card was not seated correctly. It was in the slot, but not clicked into position. As a result it was being held in place (tenuously) by the slide-in plastic cover. Over time, the improperly inserted SD card would push the plastic cover up so it wasn't flush with the case - it would be protruding by maybe 1 or 2mm from the surface of the unit. When the plastic cover wasn't flush, the unit wouldn't boot, if I pushed it in slightly so it was flush, the unit booted fine.

    There must be something resulting from a poor SD contact that locks up the unit on reboot, so if you're experiencing these intermittent hangs on load, check your card to see if its seated properly.
