Clockwork Recovery Says “Hi!” to the Motorola XOOM in Just 2 Hours

Clockwork Recovery on the Motorola XOOM in 2 hours…we love you Koush.  And I say “2 hours” because he was on his way to pick one up 2 hours ago, so really he probably did it in less.  Silly.

And now we just need root, which we have to assume will happen in the next couple of hours.  Maybe.

    Sweet! Heard these were awesome! I’d love to get one of these. Anyone have any positive / negative feedback?

    I just turned on my 5 day old Xoom and is sayes Android Recovery in the upper left of the screen.  What’s up?  I can’t even turn it off.

    Funny part about this picture is that you can clearly see that this picture was taken with an iPhone 4!!! hahahaha

    • eric

      you mean a nexus s, right?

      • pj

        No, I’m absolutely positive he meant a Droid Incredible.

    Hey kellex the zoom has been rooted already

  • Sesawyer3127

    For those who want to risk rooting the Xoom already it is possible!

    1. Download the Motorola Xoom Root Zip file and unzip it.
    2. Place the files in the SDK Tools folder.
    3. adb reboot bootloader (You can skip the next 3 steps if you’ve unlocked with fastboot previously)
    4. fastboot oem unlock (wait for reboot)
    5. adb reboot bootloader
    6. fastboot flash boot rootboot.img
    7. fastboot reboot
    8. # wait for reboot
    9. adb remount
    10. adb shell push su /system/bin
    11. adb shell ln –s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su
    12. adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    13. adb push Superuser.apk /system/app

    And you will have full root available on the Motorola Xoom!

  • Pmaroke

    I walked in to my local Verizon store in Eugene and they said they didn’t sell a single Zoom at all

  • Jesus Otero

    Is that an incredible hes using to take that pic?
    Win?

    • pj

      Yup, total score! Great minds think alike.

    • http://twitter.com/jbernard703 Jeff Bernard

      Nope that is an iPhone 4. Incredible has dual flash. Koush is an iPhone user.

      • Jesus Otero

        the camera hole is too far away from where it is supposed to be on the i*hone.
        it looks more like an inc if you ask me :D

    he had a boner while taking this pic, also his sweatshirt is dirty.

  • shr1k3r

      I don’t care what anyone says all I see in that pic is his boner

    • Kyle.Hunter

      I would have a boner too if I just got Clockwork Recovery on the XOOM.

    Maybe you should worry about your CEO’s health and the stability of Apple. Rumors within the company have it that a new CEO that is taking over Apple and he has a Green wide body, with robotic arms, a droid head and wearing a black sweater, glasses and jeans.
    His name is Andy and if you keep being so hateful you might just hear from him :P

  • Dshudson

    Awesome.. I have been f*cking with this all day.. I still want swype.. can’t live without it.

            Actually.. He pulled that out of a very select group of insults that were put out by Apple. They cost $0.99 each, very plain.. But hey, they “just work”.

      Wow this is really cool that Android is gaining enough momentum and attention that Apple fans have actually started coming here and flaming. Go Droid. :)

  • FortitudineVincimus

    “so really he probably did it in less” – or already had everything on deck ready to go

    either way.. no real shock here

        the Xoom blocks installation of all SMS apps, so I need root first

    • http://www.facebook.com/jdenman03 Jared Denman

      whats funny is that when I added another line to my account to get the xoom, they gave it a phone number, and also asked if I wanted to add text messaging. lol

    Nothing, not all the teasers, specs, screenshots, and press, has made me want one of these as much as the shot above.

    Damn he works quick

  • Veroba

    I think Koush got a little too excited there.

  • http://twitter.com/Pucuck Nicholas Ringhiser

    Pretty sweet. Good thing that fabric over top of the screen is his shirt and not his pants. Root and recovery is exciting, but not that exciting, lol.

    • Carlito Pr787

      Hahahaahhaa I was thinking the samething lol thank God it was his jacket

  • Gnosis1618

    Koush made it his B&^%h and he probably only used one hand hahaha
