Motorola XOOM Gets its First Custom ROM

The Motorola XOOM has received it’s first custom-baked ROM, the result of work undertaken by bigrushdog of XDA and the Tiamat Team. The ROM goes by the fairly uninspired XOOM Rom 1.0 Deodexed name, but the custom software is far from basic.  — all sorts of advanced options come neatly packaged inside. The bad news is though the ROM is based off of a stock build of XOOM software taken from the Verizon 3G version of the tablet, installing it will break 3G service if you are a current VZW subscriber. A pretty epic win for the XOOM community, nonetheless. Find full instructions at the source link below.

    Wicked! I am a fan of BigRushDog and the work he does. Can’t wait to try this

    Lol. Ive been running a custom ROM on my transformer for weeks now.

  • jonnypedantic

    It breaks 3G? Uh, no thanks. I’ll stick with the Tiamat kernel and stock for now.

  • Dick Hurtzer

    I’m sure the four people who bought a Xoom are thrilled.

  • Helmholtz

    Make that three people who bought a Xoom. 

    I just returned mine in anticipation of the Galaxy Tab 10.1’s release.

      Enjoy your touchwiz, locked bootloader and delayed updates.

      • Helmholtz

        Thanks. I’m not planning to root it, so I don’t care that the bootloader is locked.

        You should note that it’s not shipping with TouchWiz either. And when it is made available, it will be an *optional* update. Quite besides the point, many reviewers were actually pleased with some of TouchWiz interface features on the early review units.

        I got my Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 days ago from Best Buy 14th Street NYC and it does NOT come with touchwiz.

          Hmm. I didn’t knew that. Well, good for you then.

      • Xoom Fan

        Enjoy your no hardware ports except for the proprietary (ipad) 30 pin port. :(

    I really like my Xoom a lot and I can’t wait to try this rom. I don’t use the 3gkitchen service on mine anyway

  • Steve-dyabs

    XOOM? what’s that?

  • XOOM

    The 3g service has now been fixed on this ROM

    I installed this rom. I ended up having to do a a full system wipe, but who cares when you have a full nandroid backup. It runs very smoothly.I had no worries about 3g as i have a wifi only model.
