    Ya seems like some xooms don't have android recovery. I suppose you could always setup adb and attempt recovery that way.

    Steady just mentioned to me that the wifi xoom doesn't have stock android recovery on it. Here's an adb guide but I don't think its much use since its not a bootable option. Setting up ADB on Windows 7 64 bit (and other Windows platforms)


    Does it turn on but the screen is unresponsive?

    You may need to flash stock images. The issue is: the wifi xoom has a different bootloader than the 3G model, the 3.1 update will fix the issue with recovery for the wifi model.

    It just needs the drivers from the guide I posted. Are you on a windows machine?
