First Custom ROM Available for the XOOM!

Well it’s been quite a wait, but finally the first custom ROM for the Motorola Xoom is available.  You’ll have to head over at the XDA developers forum to grab it – thank member bigrushdog while you’re there.

Team Tiamat (the same guys that brought us those blistering Xoom overclocks), present the Xoom Rom 1.0 deodexed. Based on the stock 3.1 Verizon 3G image, the rom adds a number of enticing features for any of you Xoom owners who want that little bit extra out of your beloved gadget. Among the new features added we have:

  • Tiamat 1.4.4 stock GPU,
  • Root access with SU and superuser,
  • Desktop UA string ,
  • Gingerbread style CRT Screen Off Animation,
  • Call setting with SIP and SMS capabilities enabled,
  • Supercircle 100 point battery mod,
  • Wifi Ad-Hoc mod enabled,
  • USB Mass Storage Enabled

Quickboot, Estrongs File Explorer, and a modified version of Flash Player to work with Hulu have also been added. Obviously this is just the start for custom builds on the Xoom, but already this is a pretty alluring set of features, especially to Xoom users outside the US who still haven’t received the stock 3.1 update (myself included). Check the source link for more details and instructions on how to go about getting this up and running, and let us know how you get on!
