Late Christmas Presents for Rooted 3G XOOM Users

Do you own a 3G-enabled Motorola XOOM? Are you rooted? Do you like getting free goodies? If you answered YES to all of these questions, then XDA-Developers has your fix thanks to XDA forum member Sangreal06. The developer has managed to add not one, but 5 bonuses to the 3G XOOM by modifying the framework-res.apk file.

  • Gingerbread-Style Screen Lock Animation, which currently only works in portrait orientation
  • Modified Browser User Agent String to avoid needing to use about:debug to cure the mobile website woes
  • SMS Support
  • Voice Support
  • SIP Phone Enabled

The installation is incredibly simple, as it only involves replacing the framework-res.apk file, which can either be done using ADB commands or using a root file manager such as Root Explorer.
