Of course, by using this method, or any other for that matter, you take full responsibility if something goes wrong and you end up with an expensive paperweight. Rooting your device will void your warranty, so that’s another though to keep in mind.
Now, to get into the nitty gritty, there are two different files you can choose to install. One file allows you to root and unroot your device, while the other install file only allows for rooting the Xoom. The root-only program is much smaller, which seems to be the only difference. We should note that the root-only app gives you the “unroot” option, but it just doesn’t work, so if you want the “unroot” option, you’ll want to go with the larger install file. Also, the WiFi-only Xoom method has been untested, and currently cannot be unrooted.
If you’re holding onto the 3G Xoom, you can also update to the latest build HRI66 with just one click as well.
