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.


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).

    @Henry Maier – I have a Canadian wifi zoom too and want to root it (to mod for ad-hoc wifi). Have you gotten yours to root using this method after this initial setback?

    Thanks worked perfectly on my wifi xoom

    works nicely for my wifi xoom singapore-model. Thanks a lot for the video and instructions.

  • Bsondi

    I have a wifi model. I am assuming when I open the application for one click root, I will click on the wifi model on the right instead of the 3g on the left side of the app when it opens?

    • Correct!

        Is it possible to create a backup before rooting the xoom? I know you can make a backup with clockworkmod after rooting, but it would be nice to have a backup in case something goes wrong with the root process. If you can’t make a backup, is there a hard reset that can be done?

    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….
