How To: Root the Motorola Xoom (WiFi or 3G) (One Click Method)

I. Before You Begin

1. This will erase everything on your device so please back anything important up before beginning.

2. THIS ONLY WORKS ON US MODELS! Using on an EU model is dangerous, according to the programmers update.

THANKS TO JASON TYLER FOR THIS GREAT ONE CLICK APP and THANKS TO JBREW FOR POSTING IT ON XDA.

II. Root the Xoom

1. Download the RootMyXoom w/ Unroot App at the bottom of the first post and save it to your computer.

One Click Rooting App

2. Extract the .zip file to any directory.

3. Plug in the Motorola Xoom via USB cable.

4. Right click the Xoom One Click .exe file and choose Run As Administrator (if that option doesn’t exist just click Open).

5. Click Root and follow all of the on screen prompts on your computer as necessary.

6. All done!

III. (Optional) Load a Custom ROM

1. Head to our How To Load a Custom ROM on the Motorola Xoom Procedure (coming as soon as we get the source code for Honeycomb).

If this procedure helped you, please consider donating to the original developer or at least sending them a thank you.

Now that you are rooted, head here to learn some of the fun things you can do!

For all the devices we have rooting procedures for, head here.

    BIG FYI = I had to dig and dig through posts all over xda for this….This method is not being used anymore because of issues.  The creator and his partner promise to overhaul and bring it back…but for the time being be aware that you could have problems if you find the files….
