Motorola Xoom Still Alive and Kicking, Receives Functional KitKat

The Motorola Xoom is rapidly approaching its third birthday. And given its age, you would be forgiven for thinking that it is readily approaching time for retirement. However, thanks to innovations such as the recently covered bigpart partition layout, the device still clings to life.

Now, the device has highly functional 4.4.2 KitKat-based OmniROM builds, courtesy of  Forum Member Schischu, along with some help from quite a few other developers mentioned in the thread’s OP. Currently, there are only a few very minor issues with selecting alternate keyboards and audio dock volume controls. However, these are relatively minor and don’t hinder every day usage too greatly.

The builds require your device to be repartitioned to bigpart, if you haven’t already done so. After loading the special bigpart TWRP, installation is just like any other custom ROM.

To get started and breathe some new life into your Xoom, head over to the appropriate thread below:
