    Motorola Orders an End to XOOM System Dump Distribution, What Happened to Developer Cooperation? | Android Phone Fans

    Motorola Orders an End to XOOM System Dump Distribution, What Happened to Developer Cooperation?

    by Kevin Krause on February 24th, 2011 at 2:47 pm
    Just as quickly as a system dump of the Motorola XOOM’s software and media files came online, it was ordered down by Motorola’s legal department. Visiting the XDA thread distributing the files, where links to the system dump previously resided can now be found the text “Links removed due to receipt of a DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act) infringement notice received from Motorola Information Protection Services.”
    So what gives? After the news that the XOOM would feature an unlockable bootloader, it seemed Motorola was ready to be in the good graces of developers everywhere. Denying access to system files certainly makes you question Moto’s true intentions, but we can’t speak for why they requested the removal. It may have a lot more to do with this being the first official full release of Honeycomb than anything else. It could also be that the unlockable bootloader was instated to comply with Google Experience requests, and Moto never had any intention to make their device developer friendly. It’s all speculation for now.
    Needless to say, Motorola doesn’t want the system dump floating around the internet. If you already have it, cherish it. If you don’t, well Moto would rather you go out and by the XOOM now that it is available.

    This device seems rushed. Per a reviewer on CNET, the SD card doesn't work yet, flash will need an update to work, and if you want LTE you're probably going to have to send you device to Moto to get the hardware upgraded.

    All of these are true. I think they told me it would be a 6 business day turnaround on the upgrade. As for the SD card slot, I'm not worried about that. It's a tablet. I didn't get it expecting the thing to replace either my desktop or laptop.
