    [GUIDE][WIFI ONLY]Android 3.1 on US Xoom WiFi, Root, via ClockworkMod Recovery (XDA)

    This guide may be obsolesced shortly, but it's still good reading for the curious. See [UPDATE][HC3.1] Wifi and 3G! Completely Flashable! No Fastboot Needed! No Data Loss. (thanks, bigrushdog)

    [GUIDE][WIFI ONLY]Android 3.1 on US Xoom WiFi, Root, via ClockworkMod Recovery

    • Updates the Xoom WiFi to Android 3.1 using ClockworkMod Recovery (update.zip)
    • Resolves issue in updater-script: get_prop ro.product.device wingray
    • Sets correct permission on su to enable functioning root
    • Flashes the [strike]recovery[/strike] (version 03 persists CWM Recovery), boot (kernel), and system partitions to stock (required at this time)
    • Stock kernel means no SD Card in Honeycomb (still available in recovery), no overclocking until devs release 3.1 compatible kernels
    • Updates bootloader to include Recovery in the boot menu
    • Leaves user data intact


    I'd post a copy of the whole guide here, too, but I'm still editing too often to have it in more than one place.

    I also made an untested solution for 3G technical types available (see 3G GUINEA PIGS on the guide). Once I get positive feedback, I'll update the guide to accommodate both 3G and WiFi Xooms.

    Like an idiot I created this same thread over in the general discussion forum lol...d'oh. Anyways this guide worked perfectly except for one thing. You need to make sure you unmount your SD card prior to flashing the update.zip
