    Unable to root 4G xoom

    I've just received my Xoom back from its 4G upgrade and I'm unable to root. ADB sees the device and I've followed the instructions on XDA and here to the Tee....however, I'm stuck on step 3. Fastboot OEM Unlock....my command prompt just sits there and says <Waiting for Device>, but nothing ever happens. I had it rooted when it was running 3G. Can anyone help me out with this? Is there a One-Click method or a good tutorial (Video) available? Again, I've got the instructions, but I can't get past step 3.

    On the adb part, did you copy platform-tools to the tools folder or vice versa? You need to copy the complete folder of one to the other or it won't recognize your Xoom. Make sure you have the Moto USB drivers installed too.

    Oh...I thought that's what I did by posting it in here? Is there someone in particular that I should direct this to?

    He was probably referring to Ray's message above.

    Whenever I got stuck <waiting for device> I did the Vol Up & power to toggle into fastboot mode, then it worked. adb never worked for me.
