    Thanks

    Iy you're rooted and accept an OTA it would probably put your Xoom in a bootloop at the least, worst case is you would have to flash back to stock and start over. You won't lose root but the update just won't take.

    I rooted this way [device MZ601 xoom 3g UK]
    - UNLOCKED the bootloader
    - flashed a modified boot.img (that gives me root in adb)
    - upped su and Superuser.apk using adb

    Am i to understand that if i activated an OTA update my xoom would become unusable ?
    I would expect an update to reinstall the new stock rom (bypassing the bootloader) after witch i would have to reroot

    If an ota update wont work, then is there a way to get the "stock 3.2" on my device ?

    Or is this the only way ?
    - reflash stock 3.0 images from motodev
    - relock the bootloader (does the bootloader have to be locked to use OTA savely ?)
    - follow ota upgrade
    - reroot (the problem would be to find a modified bootloader for 3.2)

    I don't think I'm rooted.... I bought it second hand but it seems stock - how do I tell?

    Also I just tried to see if i can try it again and when i check for updates now nothing happens - in fact now I cant log on to it by my code it just freezes on the log in screen - was fine all day today!

    I had the same problem as Adamelphick and it is now solved, based on a solution suggested by Cazza (Thanks Cazza) by taking out both the Sim card and the micro SD card. I had noticed when I booted after the upgrade that there was an error message referring to the E drive. Not sure if it was the micro SD causing the problem.

    It is all working now a sigh of relief as I thought at one stage I had a bricked Xoom.

    Wish it solved mine! I tried with no SIM and I don't have an SD card in it! It's very frustrating.... I am guessing it is a certain program causing it but as I have it stuffed with programs god knows how I find out which one... GRRRRR

    UPDATE; I found a microSD card and popped it in - tried it with - No luck... so popped out and tried without again - no luck! What the hell is going on here?!

    same here

    hi,

    Exactly the same here however even though the update said it was unsuccessful i do appear to be running 3.2 and no further updates are available.

    My xoom does not recognise that there is a sim card in the slot and the 'mobile networks' option is faded out in settings.

    Sim card works fine in another xoom running 3.2

    I got the '!' during update.

    Has anyone worked this out yet?

    Thanks

    Well... after deliberating a lot about doing so I decided to download the MotoDev image for the UK Xoom 3G, install the SDK etc and do a full reset of the unit.... then it did THREE updates (as the MotoDev image is of 3.01! Talk about not up to date!)... Anyway I am now running on 3.2, card recognised etc. Everything working hunky dory. There must have been something interfering with it. The Xoom actually feels quite a bit punchier now too - not sure if that's 3.2 or the reflash! LOL

    Thanks for the update... I think I will give that a go.

    I'm downloading the MotoDev studio... where do I find the Xoom images?

    Cheers
