    No luck. :-(
    Tried flashing the recovery and got this message:

    sending 'recovery' (12288 kb) ... OKAY
    writing 'recovery' ... FAILED (command write failed (Unknown error)).

    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.

    That worked. It says: Flashing StorMgr partition recovery STATUS - done!

    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.

    It's alive again!!!! Thank you very, very much.

    What should I do next? Or should I 'bank' and stick with honeycomb?

    Glad it worked!

    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.
