Motorola will finally live up to the advertisements for the Xoom at launch, and release Flash 10.2, or at the very least begin rolling it out March 18th to all Xoom devices. It should be known as well, that any Xoom which is rooted or has an unlocked bootloader will need to be reverted back to unrooted and re-locked.
This update beginning tonight however is necessary for other firmware updates to come in the future as well as the Flash update on the 18th, and should be seen hitting your notifications bar within the next few days. if you’re one of a few who needs to unroot or re-lock your Xoom, follow along below courtesy of Android Central Forum members.
