    Root Update

    Hello, I have recently rooted my xoom, and I am lookiong to get the latest update that google has pushed. If i update though google will it relock and unroot my device? If so then how do I get the update while rooted. Is there a custom ROM availible with the software?

    I would hang tight for a while. Instructions for rooted device will be posted on the forum as soon as it has been validated. Its worth staying rooted IMO.
    Keep on Xoomin'

    If you want to stay rooted and overclocked then wait. A fix will be out for us. If you don't want to be rooted then you need to flash the stock kernel and then update. There is no benefit to rush and take the update yet.

    Is 3.1 worth it? And also if someone can help me to get the SD support to work with the tiamat kernal I would realy appreciate it. I have the kernal flashed but i don't know how to get the SD slot to work.

    Which kernel and version do you have flashed?

    Regardless you can try rebooting the Xoom and then checking the sdcard for files. Depending on the kernel version you have, your files will either be in /sdcard/sdcard2 or /sdcard/external.

    You have to use adb to update to 1.3.1 then you can flash after that.
