Thanks for the tip. Got one of our Xoom's patched up and it's running buttery smooth.
yodatom10 - as for the recovery, after you flash the recovery image, press Volume Up + Power to shut off, then Volume Up & Volume Down & Power and it should boot into the new recovery menu. It took me a few tries, and I think it's supposed to work with just Volume Up + Power. I also used the touch version of recovery (eos-recovery-r6-softkeys.img). I may have also unplugged the USB cable when I went into recovery.
