IF YOU DECIDE YOU WANT TO GO BACK TO YOUR STOCK COUNTRY FOR WARRANTY PURPOSES EASY JUST DOWNLOAD YOUR CORRESPONDING COUNTRY'S FIRMWARE eg MZ604 Europe retail OR WHICHEVER YOURS IS AND REPEAT THE PROCESS BELOW AND YOU WILL BE BACK THE WAY YOU WAS WHEN YOU SEND BACK FOR WARRENTY LOOK AT THE COMPATIABLE TABLE ABOVE DONT FORGET TO RELOCK YOUR BOOTLOADER THE COMMAND IS (fastboot oem relock).

1) make sure where C:\tools that you have extracted the stock us 3.01.zip in there you will have 4 img files and that fastboot.exe and adb.exe is in there just copy the whole tools folder from android sdk to c:\ so you will end up with C:\tools

2) you'll want this image for the us 3.0.1 image: Build HWI69 for US Retail 122mb MZ604 Product Specs Download Place all the downloaded stock image files into the SDK Tools folder. http://developer.mot...ducts/software/

3) Make sure you have the latest SDK - adb and fastboot should be in /platform-tools - http://developer.and.../sdk/index.html
Should have the android SDK if you have rooted your Xoom before.

4) Please make sure you are using the original motorola cable that came in the box with your xoom device or it will not work and or dont use any extenshion cables adapters just the lead direct into usb port.You need the Moto Drivers - Read this thread to START you - http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=981578
Should have these drivers installed if you have rooted your Xoom before.


REMEMBER IF YOU HAVE ALREADY UNLOCKED YOUR BOOTLOADER IN THE PAST YOU CAN SKIP THIS STEP AS LONG AS YOU HAVE NOT RELOCKED IT
First step If your bootloader is locked To unlock bootloader put xoom in fastboot mode by power off then Hold Vol Down and Power button will boot unit for fastboot mode you will see fastboot mode in top lefthand corner.

The bit about switching to UK language, are the system apps localised? And is there a British English dictionary? (so colour instead of color, etc.)

I'm on 3.2 now and loving it - it's so much faster! Thanks for the instructions (though I updated on Linux and ended up having to compile fastboot myself...)
