This is a discussion on Unbrick my MZ604 wifi Xoom - and I'll pay you (UK only) within the Non U.S. Motorola Xoom Help forums, part of the International Motorola Xoom Forum category; Originally Posted by zigackly That sounds like excellent news.

Not to worry. We are going to try flashing a custom recovery.
Download this and put it in your SDK_tools directory on your PC: Goo.im Downloads - Downloading eos-recovery-r6-softkeys.img
Now type "fastboot flash recovery eos-recovery-r6-softkeys.img" in your cmd window and let me know what happens.
Phew! So that means the original recovery image you downloaded was corrupt ... probably a bad download.
Now are there any of the four images (boot, system, userdata, recovery) that you have not reflashed with me tonight? If not, let's go for a reboot and see if we get in.
We can worry about downloading the factory images again once we get you out of your soft brick.
Yay! Love a happy ending, well done boys ;D

not at all techy, but I'll do my best to find out!
Up to you what to do next. You've seen how we can help you to rescue it, so I would personally take the very small risk again, download the factory images again, and try one more time, but perhaps tomorrow after a night's sleep.
I'm fairly confident it will work next time.
Thanks Zigackly, thanks Cazza.
Should I download the factory images from the Motodev site? I'm a little worried about that since they're the ones that bricked it in the first place. Or should I be getting them from somewhere else?
I'm really, really grateful for you guys' help.
The images probably didn't download correctly the first time. It can happen. There is actually very little risk of permanently bricking the xoom doing anything except locking the bootloader. I flash stuff to mine all the time without checking what I'm doing!
I'm always happy to help, glad you appreciate it.
