Motorola won't upgrade your XOOM to LTE if it's rooted
It's now official - one prerequisite to upgrade your Motorola XOOM to LTE is to have the tablet's factory settings intact. Otherwise, the guys at Motorola will send back your tablet without the LTE upgrade.

The topic was raised in the Motorola support forum, and a moderator replied in no uncertain terms that a rooted Motorola XOOM won't be eligible for LTE upgrade. This leaves you with two options if you want to hack the tab - not to root the tablet for the time being, or to unroot it when you send it to the service.

The Motorola XOOM is not able to offer its full functionality at launch, since at the time of its release, it didn't support Flash and lacked LTE capabilities. As we told you some time ago, if you want the LTE upgrade, you need to return your Motorola XOOM back to the factory, while Flash is coming in the next few weeks.

Common sense modders! Unroot before sending back. How stupid can some people be?
