Motorola Xoom gets USB host functionality and no thanks to Motorola or Google.This hack  granting Xoom owners the ability to read media from USB drives and essentially giving you a limitless amount of storage for provided you own the necessary microUSB OTG (on-the-go) cable and a rooted Xoom………

Motorola XOOM has a microSD card slot, but since it’s not currently enabled for end user use one has to make due with the 32GB of on board storage that Motorola has included.A  method of enabling USB host capabilities on the Motorola XOOM is available to anyone who is either wanting to or already has rooted their device. You’ll need to follow the instructions carefully and need an OTG cable in order for it to work but that’s all minor pieces of the puzzle at this point. The hard work has already been laid out for you.he installation is a bit involved, however. Flashing the file will take you to stock Android 3.0.1 and will unroot and re-lock your device.This tells VOLD where to mount the device, when it’s plugged in. After the change, you need to reboot. The altered boot.img adds a folder called /usbdisk, so that way if you connect a USB thumb drive using the cable I linked to above, it will automount the thumb drive and you can access files.

How To Root And Unlock Motorola Xoom:

  1. Download the XOOM root zip.
  2. Unzip the package.
  3. Put your junk in the box.
  4. adb reboot bootloader (skip the next 3 steps if you have already unlocked via fastboot)
  5. fastboot oem unlock
  6. wait for reboot
  7. adb reboot bootloader
  8. fastboot flash boot rootboot.img
  9. fastboot reboot
  10. wait for reboot
  11. adb remount
  12. adb push su /system/bin/
  13. adb shell ln –s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su
  14. adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
  15. adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/
