Dan Rosenberg said that the exploit, which he calls "Motofail", should work on Motorola devices running Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Since that encompasses pretty much every Motorola device released in the last six months, it's a major boon to the community.
Motorola DROID XYBOARD, and those that love to mod their devices have had to conform to using the included stock Honeycomb ROM. That's all about to change thanks to developer Dan Rosenberg! The bootloader is still locked down, but root access is now available.
HTC Rezound worked on international GSM networks with a SIM card and a little tweaking. It looks like the Rezound isn't the only Verizon LTE device hiding a surprise: the latest update to the Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets turns on the feature as well. Download the update from Verizon's servers by checking for it in the settings menu on either the XYBOARD 10.1 or 8.2, and your tablet should be able to roam on nearly any cellular network in the world. Previously the FCC published the GSM capability, but it was disabled at the time.

DROID XYBOARD, known outside the world of baffling product marketing as the XOOM 2, has a lot riding on it. When the XOOM debuted on Verizon back in February, it was the only game in town as far as Honeycomb tablets were concerned. Now consumers have a choice of dozens of tablets, with or without wireless service, across a wide variety of form factors and prices.

XOOM launched as the first Honeycomb tablet and had plenty of promise. Sadly the hefty size and bloated Verizon 3G data pricing didn't help its cause. We now have the next-gen Xoom happily named the DROID XYBOARD tablets to see what they learned from their first attempt at a tablet. The XYBOARD has been hanging out with our team and a few Galaxy Nexus smartphones this week and below you'll find our thoughts on this 8.2" Honeycomb device.
two new Motorola tablets, each of them carrying the coveted "DROID" moniker in front of the word XYBOARD - what we've got here is the 10.1-inch version, the closest we'll get to a direct descendent of the original Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola XOOM. This tablet runs with Verizon's 4G LTE network for speed, a Texas Instruments OMAP4 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood, and has a lovely new form factor with soft black plastic and metallic-looking hard silver plastic. On the front there's one sheet of reinforced Gorilla Glass glass over this device's 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 pixel resolution LCD display.
DROID XYBOARD 8.2" 4G LTE tablet. Other than the bizarre name you'll quickly notice a few unique things about this slate out of the box. A perfectly sized 8.2" IPS display and some of that Moto Blur UI over Honeycomb to name a few. We have our hands-on video and a few photos below for your enjoyment.
