Xoot For the Xoom Gives You Root Plus More

XDA Member epic118 has just released Xoot for the Xoom. Not only is it fun to say, but it’s actually a pretty useful little tool for Xoom owners. He doesn’t mention OS compatibility, but the .rar file contains .dll, .bat and .exe files so it’s safe to assume this will work on at least Windows.

The functionality of it is quite nice and includes the following:

Bootloader lock/unlock
Root your XOOM (thanks solarnz)
Convert from a region XOOM to a GED XOOM
Flash non-flashable boot animations
Includes ADB and FASTBOOT for all your Android developing needs!

For those who don’t know the difference between the regional Xoom and the GED Xoom, epic118 offers an explanation:

A region XOOM is one that’s not in the US. It may have changes made by Motorola, and get updates slower. A GED XOOM is a XOOM that’s in the US. It’s known as a Google Experience Device, and cannot be modified my Motorola.

So if you have a Xoom and want to have some fun tinkering with it, you can read more details, get the download links and instructions from the original thread. Since root is involved along with some other heavy mods, remember that this can harm your Xoom if you’re not careful and no one is responsible for your device but you.
