Motorola XOOM Now Rocking 4G-Capable Rooted 3.2.2!

The development world never sleeps, at least not on XDA. Immediately after receiving the 3.2.2 OTA yesterday, XDA forum member AceXMachine promptly provided the stock images to fellow XDA forum member solarnz. Does that name sound familiar to you? It should. The Tiamat team member has plenty of ROM, kernel, and recovery work under his belt.

Now, the developer provides us with a pre-rooted version of the stock images that can be applied to any device regardless of model or country of origin. One caveat to keep in mind is that for devices that have not yet been upgraded to 4G hardware, only WiFi connectivity will be operational. In order to streamline the process for everyone, the installation procedure weighs in at just 5 simple steps.

Straight off the 4G Xoom devices this morning (Thanks to AceXMachine for grabbing the images for me), I present to you the 3.2.2 Stock + Rooted rom!!! I haven’t had a chance to figure out what is actually different yet with 3.2.2.

NOTE: This can be flashed on any device, however the 3g/4g network connectivity will ONLY work on the 4G xooms. Everyone else will be on wifi.

And yes, this comes pre-rooted.

Instructions:

  1. Download the rom
  2. Place it on the sdcard
  3. Reboot into recovery
  4. Perform a factory reset (wipe data+cache)
  5. Install the zip file.

For those looking to get some 4G action or just update to the latest rooted version of your favorite tablet OS, continue on to the development thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
