    Ok; I have 3.1 installed via the push from Google/Moto (yes, i made the mistake of returning my Xoom to stock).

    I have tried two different methods of rooting and as of yet have not had success. I was able to unlock and install CWM but was unable to get it to read my SD Card. By doing the Erase Data/Factory Reset, I was able to get CWM to see my USB Thumb Drive as a source for install; however every time I try to install a package I get an error message:

    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    I tried re-downloading the packages and even tried a different USB drive, but I still get the same results.

    anyone have a suggestion?


    P.S. i am trying to load "bootloader_patch_3.1.zip" and "HMJ37_root_sdcard_3G.zip". I also tried "3G_RootTool_3.1.zip".

    I'm no familiar with any of those zips, there's a simpler way to root though:

    Get this file: http://mirror1.kanged.net/motorola/s...y/xoomroot.zip (provided by Koush)

    unzip it and get "su" & "Superuser.apk" - put them in your adb tools folder.

    Boot the Xoom in to recovery, go to mounts, and mount System, give it a few seconds and ADB will kick in, you can test by typing "adb devices" and when your Xoom is listed you're good to go.

    Then just:
    adb remount
    adb push su /system/bin/
    adb shell
    ln –s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    exit
    adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/
    Then reboot and install BusyBox from the market. https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result

    I returned to stock 3.0 and received the Moto/Google OTA 3.1 (and was telling myself I made a mistake). I was getting worried that I could not root... til I saw this thread. Hope this helps. Some very useful info!!!

    Recovery does not have a "Mounts" option anymore. also, ADB remount does not work.

    OK; I started over and this time I get different "recovery" screen and gets hung in the boot animation. I tried several different approaches but no joy.

    Did you flash clockwork?

    Third try is the charm. I started over and reloaded everything and finally got it to work. All I need now is an overclock kernel and everything would be great.
