Motorola Xoom Gets Stock Rooted Android 4.1.2

The Motorola Xoom is a marvelous device. Being the first Honeycomb tablet and the lead device for an iteration of Android are great accomplishments. Poking fun at Apple in the Xoom’s Super Bowl ad is an even better accomplishment. Just because the Xoom is “only” dual-core and reaching its second birthday (way past retirement age in the mobile device world) doesn’t mean it’s a legacy or forgotten device.

XDA Recognized Contributor and Wingray supporter extraordinaire stachre has released a stock build of Android 4.1.2 with root. This is a follow-up to his stock Android 4.1.1 with root thread, which was itself a follow up to his stock Android 4.0.4 with root thread, and so on. In fact stachre has released a stock ROM with root for every version since Android 3.1.

What are you waiting for? Go to his latest thread and get stock Android 4.1.2 with root installed on your Wingray Xoom. Reports in the thread says it works for the Stingray variant as well, so read the thread and find out if it will work for you.
