    Which I assume could still cause a bootloop, being that the system is recognizing a foreign driver

    The problem right now seems that when you flash the hacked boot.img (wifi+3g) to root your wifi xoom, people are having trouble rebooting the xoom which is soft bricking their xooms. If I had a WYFI model I would not try anything untill someone figures this out. Who knows, if too many are being returned soft bricked the stores might get smart and stop takeing returns on xooms with this condition.

    Oh GEE! My heart is breaking. When it came out that they would be making a wifi only .. I just assumed that it would be made with some cheaper components for a higher profit margin. Whatever Moto's loss has been with the 3/4G LTE .. you can bet that they are going to try to make that up with the wifi only.

    nobody really anticipated that the wifi only version of the xoom would contain different software compared to the wifi+3g version.

    So its hanging at the Moto boot screen right? You can always try going into stock recovery and doing another data wipe. You can always SBF or flash the stock image back should u end up with a soft brick.
