[How To] Return To Stock (3G/4G HR166)
***Use to restore USA 3g/4g system and boot img in the event of a soft brick, or to return to a locked factory state***
This is for use only on the 3G/4G Xoom HR166 build.
Please note the following information does contain official Motorola images from a non Motorola source. The information in this thread has been tested, however I can not confirm that it will work for every situation. In no way will I or XoomForums.com be held accountable for any damage resulting from using this information. Use the following with extreme caution.
Please note this will wipe and re-lock your device
1) Be unlocked and rooted
2) Have ADB installed (see http://www.xoomforums.com/forum/moto...platforms.html for info)
3) Get ready to sweat bullets
System and Boot Img for HR166 Build- http://www.android.net/forum/downloa...?do=file&id=46
Download the file from the link above. Unzip the file and place them in the folder you will be running commands from in ADB.
The following red text indicates what needs to be entered in the command prompt. Each command if followed by pressing enter.
adb reboot bootloader
Xoom will then reboot into bootloader screen
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot oem lock
Use volume rocker to select ok and then xoom will reboot.
At this point you should be back to a factory state which includes being locked and unrooted.
