So I’ve been reading tons of forum threads to figure this out. The thing is, its not really hard, but what makes it challenging is the noise of information out there. You get to a point that your not sure which method is the right method.
Eventually I started taking down notes, toyed with it for a bit, and said what the heck, lets just do this, and if it bricks it bricks. And after all that hard work I decided to share my notes with you all. So you dont have to go through the same hassle I did.
I purchased my Xoom 3g from Axiom in Kuwait, and tested the 3g functionality with ZainKW. It should work for all other 3g providers in Europe and Asia.
I started out with Android 3.1 Stock which I got OTA.
Disclaimer: You follow these instructions at your own risk, you have been warned.
Before you start, Files You Will need:
3gXoom (Extract this to C:\3GXoom Root)
ClockWork Recovery Image
Tiamat Hammerhead Rom
USB Drivers from support site
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock
Follow the on screen instructions!
You have now unlocked your Xoom 3G boatloader but your not rooted yet.
1.) Reboot into fastboot mode
adb reboot bootloader
(You should see “Starting Fastboot protocol Support.” at the top of your Xoom)
2.) Time to get your hands dirty
a.) fastboot flash boot boot.img
b.) fastboot reboot
The xoom will reboot and display the Dual Core M logo then do:
adb remount
adb push bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules
adb reboot
Once Again The xoom will reboot and display the Dual Core M logo then do:


adb remount
adb push su /system/bin/su
adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
adb shell ln -s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su
adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/
adb reboot
Grats your Device is now rooted! If this is all you wanted to do you may stop here, else continue.
Now its time to Install ClockworkMod (R4c)

Filename: recovery-Tiamat-R4c-100611-1150-cwm
2.) Install Recovery Image
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery recovery-solarnz-XXXXXX-XXXX.img
fastboot reboot
After it reboots type
adb reboot recovery
*If it doesnt work, dont panic, just hard reboot the device (Hold Powerbutton)
