    Question System Update Help

    Years ago I bought a wifi only Xoom on ebay, when I got it I figured out that it had already been rooted, which at the time was fine. After some time the update notification would come up, but would fail. This got annoying and over time more apps became incompatible. I just "returned to stock" by the thread on this forum, installed HWI69. That was successful, after that finished the bootloader updated, but the system update still fails. I build race cars for a living so all this is a bit over my head. What I want, if possible is the latest update by the easiest means.

    Thanks,
    James

    They've probably removed the update roms from their servers by now.

    You'll have to dig around the threads to see if you can find a working link to a stock rom.

    Welcome along though it took you a while to post!

    Thanks for the tip. Could you point me in a direction, like I said this is over my head and honestly don't even know what I'm looking for. I can build high horsepower engines and easily measure 0.001" but the inner workings of computers... still difficult for me to understand. If I had time to sit down and study how this all works I'm sure I could figure it out, but I do not have that much extra time.

    Thanks,
    James
