**Before you get started, make sure the USB Debugging option is enabled in the Settings. Go to Settings --> Applications --> Development -->USB Debugging**


  • Download and unzip files. Place rootboot.img, superuser.apk & su binary in the same place you will open your command window.
  • Open command window:
  • Type; adb devices - you should see a long serial number on the screen. If no serial number appears, recheck your adb, sdk & moto usb driver files.
  • Type; adb reboot bootloader
  • Type; fastboot oem unlock - and follow the steps on your xoom's screen (You have to accept the terms by pressing the volume down key, and then select 'accept' by pressing the volume up key.)
  • Allow the xoom to boot up completely and go back into settings and enable USB debugging again.
  • In the command window on your PC type; adb reboot bootloader - (if xoom does not respond, disconnect from pc and reboot manually by holding vol up + power. then reconnect after fully rebooted)
  • Type; fastboot flash boot rootboot.img (for WiFi)
  • OR Type; fastboot flash boot 3Grootboot.img (for 3G Verizon)
  • Type; fastboot reboot
  • Allow the xoom to boot completely - your xoom should be in normal operating mode for the remainder of the process.
  • In the command window on your PC type; adb remount
  • Type; adb push su /system/bin
  • Type; adb shell
  • Type; ln -s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su (this line starts with lower case "L", like llama)
  • Type; chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
  • Type; exit
  • Type; adb push Superuser.apk /system/app
Thats it...your done!! Unplug the xoom and reboot. Your xoom is now stock rooted. You can now flash ClockworkMod, other kernels and roms. To verify root, download a root user app from the market and run it. You should be prompted to allow superuser permissions.

    • Open a terminal (located in the utilities folder)
    • Navigate to your sdk/platform-tools folder

    • Type; ./adb reboot bootloader
    • Type; chmod 755 fastboot
    • Type; ./fastboot oem unlock
    • Type; adb reboot bootloader
    • Type; ./fastboot flash boot rootboot.img
    • Type; ./fastboot reboot
    • Type; ./adb remount
    • Type; ./adb push su /system/bin
    • Type; ./adb shell
    • Type; chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
