Motorola Xoom Root the Easy way with 1-Click-Root and overclock [Guide]

The Motorola Xoom, I love it. I seriously have not powered on my Google CR-48 Netbook since I got my Xoom. It's just that fun. What better way to get more from your Android device then rooting it. Once you root the possibilities open up for much more things, and uses. Today I will be posting a guide for easy root. Yes this is 1-Click-Root for the Motorola Xoom. Now some might say this takes more than 1 click, and it does, but this sure beats having to very carefully and slowly enter multiple adb commands into your computer and hope you don't mess up.

Cornerstone Turns Gingerbread Tablets to Multitasking Gold

There's a group called Onskreen promoting their Android tablet profile Cornerstone today, this system, which appears to be a homescreen replacement app, set to offer what they're calling real multitasking to the masses before Honeycomb tries for the same crown en masse. Apparently they're aiming for the manufacturer market of those not wanting to wait for Honeycomb to become available to them, instead offering this system on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Little do they know, Gingerbread might be just as hard for these companies to get as Honeycomb currently is - super lockdown!

Android 3.0 Honeycomb gets a Screenshot App

For those that use these kind of apps or have been around lately to notice that we didn't have one. The Motorola Xoom and any Android 3.0 Honeycomb device in general could not take screenshots with an app. There is drocap2, ShootMe and many other screen capture apps for our Android phones and apparently none of them worked on Android 3.0 but now a developer from the XDA forums named ftgg99 has fixed this issue for us. He has developed an app called Screenshot ER.

Guerilla Bob [Review] [Motorola XOOM + Android Handsets]

Lets begin by saying that Guerilla Bob works on lots of different Android devices. It looks fabulous on the XOOM tablet we've got sitting here, it looks lovely on the HTC ThunderBolt, and rolls out hard on the ATRIX 4G. The images and video you see below are on the Motorola XOOM tablet of course, as this is the big screen all games like this aught to be tested on, but let me assure you, it works just as well (and in some cases better) on the comparatively small screen. It's a powerhouse of a fun and simple shooter at just three bucks - skip the review, it rocks like a stick of dynamite attached to an arrow sticking to a bad guy!
