    Australian XOOM MZ601 root and upgrade?

    Hi All.

    Apologies for the questions but am completely new to this!

    I currently have a Xoom MZ601 Australian version running android 4.0.4 Ice cream Sandwich.

    I was looking for guides to Root the device and then hopefully a newer Android version (and overclock anything to get some performance out of it)

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a guide / steps that will support the Australian version? I've read a few but they all seem to be for EU?

    Also I've read that some of the new OS cause issues with no SD card support - is this still an issue for those that have upgraded??

    Appreciate any advice / tips. The Xoom has been sitting away for years and I'm trying to get some use out of it!!

    Dead in the Water

    I have an original first generation Xoom and the only identification I can find is on the back at the bottom: FCC ID: 1HDT56MT1 IC: 109O-T56MT1
    The original charger plug pin went bad some time ago so I bought a replacement online, the original charger had a 12V 1A output rating and the replacement has a 12V 1.5A output rating and the Xoom doesn't want to charge up on it or it has some kind of overcharge current protection. I was also having some problems with the power switch and I wonder sometimes about the battery life. Are these all related around a central issue? or separate issues?

    Thanks, Tony J.
