    Xoom Won't Power On After Canceling Unlock Hope I Didn't Brick

    Ok so here's my issue. I started the process of unlocking my xoom using the universal xoom rooting guide over on xda. I started the unlock process and got to the point were my xoom asked me if I wanted to continue and I hit the volume button that lets you cancel out I can't remember which one up or down right now. At that point my xoom started to reboot but never came back on. It exited out of that screen that gives you the warning about continuing or canceling and shut down but never rebooted and now it won't turn back on. I've tried holding the power and volume up at same time with no avail. I put it on the charger and made sure it was full charged and still won't power on. Please Help I Hope I didn't brick it.

    Welcome to the forum.Glad you decided to join us. Leave it on the charger for 30 minutes after the charge indicator turns green. Then try the soft reboot, volume up and power button, release both as soon as the reboot starts.

    Giving that a try will let you know what happens.

    Ok so I tried the suggestion of letting it charge and then leaving it charging with green light on for 30 minutes and then doing the soft reboot and I still got nothing, no sign of life. Any other suggestions?

    Plug it into you pc and open a cmd from the folder you were initially running commands from and type:
    cd (enter)
    adb devices (enter)
    If you get a string of numbers proceed with the unlock and root using our guide.

    If you don't get a string of numbers unplug the Xoom and reboot with the buttons and reboot your PC too. Plug back in and try again. As a last resort you may have to flash back to stock and start over with the root process.

    ok so I tried your instructions and was unable to get it to find my device. So now you say to flash back to stock but im not sure how to go about that with my xoom. I have flashed my evo 4g many times so if you could point me in the right directions for flashing back to stock with my xoom that would be very helpful. One other thing I have never rooted my xoom so im not sure how I can flash it back to stock.

    You can get the most current images here and the instructions are on the upper right of the link.
    MOTODEV > Products > Device Software
    Also take a look at this. Your xoom is going to need to be recognized before you can fastboot the images.
    Ways to get Windows to recognize your Xoom
    Another thing to try:
    1.Open a command prompt from within your Android SDK Tools folder.
    2.Type: adb reboot bootloader
    3.Your XOOM will reboot into the bootloader showing “Starting Fastboot Protocol Support.”
    4.Type: fastboot oem unlock
    5.Read the warning on your XOOM’s screen.
    6.You may have to tap Volume Down to switch it to “Accept”.
    7.Then press Volume Up to actually “Accept”.
    8.Once you accept, your XOOM will be unlocked and formatted.

    I would like to thank you all for all your help but I am still stuck. I have tried your suggestions with no luck. Its like my xoom is dead, absolutely no power, computer won't recognize because it wont power on at all. The only thing it will do is show that it is charging white light or green light when fully charged other than that nothing. I hope there are some options out there for me and hope you guys will send them my way. Please help.
