    Got ICS Update, now stuck in boot animation infinite loop

    Hello, first post here and just wanted to say this has been a very helpful community to me so far. Today the wi-fi stopped working on our rooted, unlocked xoom (purchased used about 2 weeks ago). I believe this is a 3g verizon model but the guy we bought it from said it had the 4g update. However, the installed OS always showed CDMA options instead of LTE connectivity options. We don't have verizon service at the moment, but would like the capability for the future.

    So back on topic. The wifi stopped working, turns out there was a DNS issue at our router. I also decided to re-flash the xoom back to factory defaults today to fix some stability issues. I grabbed the Android SDK (for Mac), adb, and the factory images from the motodev website. After the re-flash I re-locked the boot loader and honeycomb worked fine for the rest of the evening. The ICS update came in, I promptly installed it and now I have problems.

    1. After turning the Xoom on, I get the bootloader screen with boot options, then it tries to start ICS, where it hangs and keeps looping the animation.
    2. Someone suggested I run the factory recovery, ok no problem I'm thinking. Except when I load it I get the screen where Andy is lying on his back with his belly opened up and a red triangle with "!" on it is floating over his belly. I can still get into the recovery menu by pushing volume up + Power. In this menu I can wipe the cache successfully, but the "Wipe data/factory reset" option gives me a bp clear error. (Later tried this again and it didn't give a BP error.
    3. Rebooting again the xoom is right back in the infinite animation boot loop again.

    OK. Did that. Same problem again.. Unlocked and rebooted again back to HRI66. Installed update again, same issue. I'm just gonna let it run all night I guess.

    Unlikely. May have to wait a bit on this upgrade, or re-root it.

    Thanks for the help so far! Going to bed for the night, will fight with it some more tomorrow!

    As a strange side note from my research.. This xoom's bootloader is unusual to the others.
    It is a black screen with 17 startup mode options. I see no red "M" logo in the middle like other screenshots I see. Could this be tripping me up? I'm a bit late to the android party, I still can't tell what's been meddled with and what hasn't.
    Bootloader version 1050

    hi everyone! Im in a infinite loop in an Verizon XOOM (ICS) with the original auto updated Firmware. The first thing I will try will be the hard reset in the recovery menu. The thing is: I don't want to loose the pictures and videos (I never do a backup of them ) They are memories from my kids etc. Is there a way of access the file system from "outside" or start the device in some "safe mode" to copy the files , and then do the factory reset? Thanks in advance for any help!
