    i figured i would try and delete WinZip. since it was the program that was reading the IMG files as zip files. If anyone else runs into the same problem that i did, just delete Winzip and the img files will show up as img files and not zip files. Winzip is free to install so you can just grab it at a later time.

    On to the rooting...

    Oh btw...if this helps. Please tap the good ol thanks.

    Ha ha. Thanks again TNT. It was one of those wake up in the middle of the night things. If you've got winzip this should help bypass a few mins of irritation

    That's odd...hmmmm. did you unroot and lock the xoom before accepting the ota? Maybe that was the problem?

    Awesome. Git er done. I'm drawing a blank when it comes to why you're having these issues.
    Its good to hear you're on the road to root and tiamat! There's a cool theme on xda too. Stargate is what its called. Let me get you the link

    Have you gotten the system update notification since being on 3.2? I've seen it a few times but don't want to except it.

    Here is the final story:
    The rootboot.img downloaded from rootboot.img was stuck and there was no way out.

    I tried hard reset option cited from [Q] How to hard reset xoom wifi - xda-developers didn't work.

    Finally, i copied Zip file from update_US-Xoom-WiFi-4.0.4-IMM76_stachre_v01.zip for IMM76 to SD card. Then, using clockwork mod from [Recovery] ClockworkMod 3.2.0.0 (R4c) Modded for Internal media [UPDATED 10/6] - xda-developers , I installed ICS 4.0.4

    God! I was able to recover my Xoom wifi!!!!! Though it is thrilling, we are far far away from Windows what it is today [sign].

    I am now stuck updating 4.0.4 to 4.1.2 The update will show up with ! in triangle of android icon after boot. I have no idea how to move forward. The update alert is very frequent that I am not able to focus on my actual apps. I would appreciate if someone could recommend a solution for 4.1.2 update.

    Thanks,
    Pingala
