Android 3.2.2 Honeycomb for Motorola Xoom 4G started rolling out couple of days ago. Senior XDA member and developer, Solarnz, has released a custom ROM based on this new 3.2.2 rollout. Everything in this ROM is stock and pre-rooted. The ROM can be flashed on any Motorola XOOM variant, but 3G/4G will work only on 4G Xoom’s. As the update is still very new so we aren’t sure what’s added or subtracted from this build. This ROM will definitely make life easier for folks who didn’t update to stock Android 3.2.2 due to root on their devices.
