Download: Motorola XOOM Stock SBF [HRI39]

Say hello to your Motorola XOOM safety net.  Yep, the official stock SBF file is available, but who knows for how long.  A friend of ours sent this over last night and since it looks like it has made its way into the open, we better share the goodness before it disappears.

Download Link

For those not familiar with SBFs, just know that this is a file that will help get you back to stock for that 4G LTE upgrade.  It’s a good thing to have.

Cheers Legion!

    i love that you can unlock and root the xoom with ease, and the first thing i did with my x was root it. but i can’t find the reason to root the xoom yet. anyone wanna push me to root it?

  • Lwvyruz

    its gone can someone please re upload

  • Kurttrail

    I don’t know why ya’ll think that motorola won’t upgrade an unlocked xoom to 4g. It is a feature you purchased along with your xoom, not a warranty issue.

    Ewww… the mobile view was back on the post after this one but this one is ugly full screen! Has your site slept with too many of those other “via” websites, and now it has the clap?

    This is awesome LOL now when is the dang SD card going to work. I mean c’mon now that’s kind of important??? Isn’t one of the biggest reasons to unlock and root to load custom roms with the ability to use a custom recovery??? Hello, why is Moto so silent on this? Do they not know their own product and can’t give an estimated date? Don’t just respond back with how great this thing is, or how bad Apple is, they don’t release products with key components not working? Yes Xoom has flash, I think LOL and maybe one day will get an SD card working but what is the draw to this thing now? Dont get me wrong I bought one but will buy the Ipad2 which seems like more of a finished product.

      From what I have read it is more of a android 3.0 thing than a Motorola thing. I mean the hardware only works if the software is written and to get it out I read somewhere they had to leave that out. So if this is the case it is not Motorola it is goolge and Im sure they are working on it just give it ‘sometime. I mean I want it as well but at least we get our xooms now and dont have to wait while the thing gets delayed. Ill work with the things that I have to wait for as we don’t even have ROMs available yet to utilize a custome recovery. We have a great tablet and have many things to look forward too.

  • Lucky19

    Can I just wait for the upgrade to be done before I unlock it?? This is my first tablet really just surfing the net and playing games.

    • DBK

      Yes, yes you can. That’s the beauty of Android……choices. :)

      • Lucky19

        Ah ok ill Just DL the file keep it just incase it dissapears.

        • DBK

          Good thinking. :)

    Um, which file in there is the SBF? I’m assuming the bigger VZW_….. is, but then what is the other 1.35-everast… one?

    • Anonymous

      Yep.

      • Guest

        Kellex do you know what the 1.35 file is for in there?

  • Mth2134

    I want my 5 hundo back!!!! lol

    Downloading “TheGiftofLegion” now. Thanks Legion and thanks Droid Life! I’m still not sure I’ll unlock my Xoom before the upgrade, but it’s nice to have some insurance if I do. :-)

    • Anonymous

      Yeah i wouldnt unlock mine either…patience is a virtue :)

      • DBK

        Exactly. Which is why I am waiting for the Xoom WiFi. Until then, my NookColor with Honeycomb will do just fine. :)

  • Anonymous

    I still don’t see the point of unlocking the XOOM right now.

    • Mrpicolas

      For themers and devs this is one puzzle piece needed for custom roms and hacks… now all we need is source

      • DBK

        And patience :)

    • ManDroid

      Exactly my thoughts… I bought a xoom on Wed. and there’s absolutely nothing to do on it. Most of them things I need to do I can do on my D2 Global… They need to hurry up with those apps. I’m just gonna pick up an Ipad 2 on fri. while I wait on market apps to show up for my Xoom…

      • DBK

        Why wast the money (considering how much you already spent for the Xoom)? Most apps work on it (they’re just not optimized for the Xoom). What was the point of buying a Xoom then? You should have just waited until the i*ad 2, then buy the Xoom later when it’s app library is bigger. Or you could have even bought a NookColor, put Honeycomb on it, and test the waters before committing to a Xoom (thus saving money in the process).

        What I said has nothing to do with available apps.

        • DBK

          And he never said or insinuated as much. He was just giving his *ahem* reason for not doing it.

      Well it wipes all of the bloatware off and makes it a truly stock device. :)

      • Anonymous

        I don’t know what XOOM you got that has bloatware on it!

        • DBK

          Some people don’t like any bit of bloatware on their devices, no matter how small. At least we have the option, should we choose to unlock.

          Choices…..a good thing.

          • http://twitter.com/mfg68 MFG

            What bloatware is on the XOOM, exactly?

          • DBK

            Since I don’t own a Xoom, can’t say. There’s probably some Moto/Verizon app or widget on there somewhere.

          • http://twitter.com/mfg68 MFG

            Nope, there isn’t. Not a bit.

          • DBK

            You really fighting me on this? There are probably apps and widgets on there that people don’t want and can only be removed through unlocking. Just because you haven’t seen anything and have use of all the preinstalled apps and widgets doesn’t mean that others won’t see them or need them.

          • Legion

            Dungeon Defenders and Cordy are two examples of bloatware loaded on the device. There definitely is, and its great google gives us the option to remove it.

          • DBK

            Yes, yes it is.

          • http://twitter.com/UndergroundWire Andrew G.

            You are stupid. I suppose everyone should have Cordy installed? How about Dungeon Defender? Please know what you are talking about before posting.

        Although I do agree Kellex….. The xoom doesn’t have near as much bloatware as most devices by motorola are coming out with today. And since there is no “Blur” and has wifi tethering built in, i’m still debating on to unlock and root. Decisions decisions! lol
