    I agree, this is where people would look for rooting it instead of the news section.

    News is news. But rooting info is not always new news.

    Need some help.

    I followed the unlock method on XDA after getting some issues with another guide I read (on Droid Life). With the Xoom installed, I'd run "adb reboot bootloader" and it said "error: device not found." I powered it off, powered it back while holding the down volume, got to fastboot I believe, and issued the unlock command, and it worked. Rebooted, unlocked. Opened ADB again and it keeps saying "device not found" when I type "adb reboot bootloader." Any idea what I can do/what am I doing wrong?

    Does ADB recognize the device when just plugged in? If not then adb might not have been set up properly. I believe you can get the fastboot even without ADB setup correctly.

    How do I check that exactly? I went to AVD manager, and I didn't see Xoom or anything, and I tried to "ls" to see if anything would show up in command prompt, but I do not really know any commands for Windows.

    It looks like adb is not configured right. Can you tell me how to do this correctly? I just downloaded the app, copied everything from Platform Tools to Tools, per some instructions I read. Where did I go wrong? I am on Windows 7, 64-Bit, but I have a Linux boot if that would be easier. I just couldn't find the drivers on MotoDev.
