Xoom WiFi Only 3.1 Update – Flashable, No Wipe Necessary, External Storage Enabled

If you’re the owner of the WiFi US Xoom, you’ll be pleased to know that XDA forum member publicanimal has put together a flashable, no wipe, external storage enabled update file for the 3.1 Honeycomb update.

The XDA member has incorporated a modified version of stachre’s updater-script into the official WiFi 3.1 update from Google. Also added was the kernel and all of the files from bigrushdog’s HC3.1 zip, except for the system.img file, meaning that the the WiFi only software gets installed on your WiFi only Xoom.

The benefit, states the XDA member, is that this does not require a factory data reset and also provides access to the external SD card in the /sdcard/external folder.

If you want to find out more and to download the file, head on over to the forum thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
