    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?

        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?
