    I saw this thread on another website:

    Xoom 3G, WiFi One Click Root - Android Root Guides, Reviews, Tablets

    can anyone tell me if they've tried this successfully with a xoom wifi? it seems a lot easier than the manual instructions i've seen here and other places, but i don't want to risk bricking if it's not for real. Someone please confirm???

    I highly recommend not using one click, I have seen it cause allot of issues. I have a how to guide posted on xoomforums I can link you to. I'm more than happy to help if you need it.

    thanks i would like that. I've seen step by step instructions, but they always look very intimidating. For my droid2 i used z4 and have had no problems, so i was hoping to find something similar for the xoom. But i'll try to follow your instructions on this one.

    Just got home with my xoom. What would root access do for me on here? I like the write up - it looks allot like how I rooted my droid x the first time.

    Rooting has allot of benefits, some include:
    Custom kernels
    Overclocking
    Themes
    Nandroids
    Backing up apps and data
    Root explorer
    Much much more

    I rooted tonight via Steady's guide over at xoomforums - great guide and appreciate the help!

    just don't be in a rush and take your time with it .... i suggest reading the whole thread - most of the mistakes (usually user error) are in there and then you will know ahead of time what is the cause instead of freaking out.

    or just post in the thread and they will answer - usually pretty quick

    I have the Motorola xoom wifi, just register your device at Motorola website and update your personal information after you register your device. That's how I got my update :)
