    try this command

    open command line to tools folder
    at command line type: fastboot oem unlock
    if you have your xoom in fastboot mode and plugged in you should have some onscreen instructions and your xoom is salvageable

    Do you have the Android SDK installed on your computer?

    If so, can you go into fastboot on your Xoom and issue the following command from the ..\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools:
    fastboot oem unlock

    What happens when you do this?
    Keep on Xoomin'

    go back to fastboot

    1. Goto: MOTODEV > Products > Device Software for stock USA 3G and Wifi Images
    2. signup and download the files you need
    3. extract all the img's into the tools folder

    4. with the command prompt open type: cd "replace with tools directory location"

    5. disconnect your xoom from your computer and shut off the xoom

    6. at the prompt type: fastboot oem unlock
    7. it will say waiting for device
    8. now plug it into your computer and reboot into fastboot by holding the down volume button and power on
    9. follow the on screen instructions and agree to everything
    10. your device will reboot you will get the motorola dual core window
    11. force restart device by holding volume up and pressing the power button right after the device shuts off hold the down volume button and press power button
    12 you should now be in fastboot mode
    13. then copy each line one by one into the command window. This will allow you to go back to factory settings like you bought it from the store
