Xoom STUCK on "Starting Fastboot protocol support"
I am trying to Unroot my Xoom, so that I can run the 3.1 Update. My Xoom is a WiFi version, and I rooted it yesterday. I have all of my motorola drivers installed. When I run the adb "adb reboot bootloader" and it restarts, I get a hung message that says "Starting Fastboot protocol support".
I have seen that some people have resolved it, but they did not say how they did it. Adb is communicating with the device; however, when I try to send a command during this stuck screen, I get "waiting on device" message.

It looks like a driver problem, that your computer isn't recognizing the Xoom in fastboot mode. Try un plugging and re-plugging in the USB cable and try re-installing the drivers on your PC.

If you are using Windows 7 the drivers it installs are generic usb drivers. Update them manually from the following link and rooting will work. I had this exact same issue. For some reason the drivers installed by default don't have the needed functionality to go beyond the first reboot and fastboot startup.

I took it back and got a new one I think what happened, is whenever I rooted it, the same day, 3.1 came out. I tried to install 3.1 (without restocking it) and half way through the upgrade it failed and rebooted. I think this somehow or another screwed up Fastboot. I reinstalled all the moto drivers, SDK, etc, and to no avail. I think that the upgrade erased a driver that was needed for the fastboot menu.
All in all, it sucked, but I got a new one, WIFI again, and I probably won't root it!
