Default Good News for Xoom Hackers Who Want LTE

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/06/motorola-will-upgrade-your-xoom-to-4g-lte-even-if-youve-root/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/06/...-if-youve-root/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Happy news for Android tinkerers everywhere -- Motorola has officially confirmed it will attempt to perform its 4G upgrade on all Verizon Wireless-riding Xoom tablets it receives from users, whether they've been rooted, repainted, or accessorized with fluffy dice."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1299720284.usr309.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>This is some good news!&nbsp; Motorola doesn't exactly have a great reputation for being friendly to modders.&nbsp; Many hold the e-fuse boot loader drm thing against them and even if it's a function of the CPU or chipset from TI, Motorola did still choose to use it.&nbsp; Anyway, in this situation Moto is stating they will upgrade your Xoom to LTE no matter what.&nbsp; The only catch is depending on your mod they may not be able to install the updated software that goes along with the new LTE radio.&nbsp; If you want to be sure you'll get the software upgrade they ask you to put it back to the original firmware.&nbsp; That sounds as fair as possible to me!&nbsp; Does this improve your view of Motorola?</p>
