Motorola confirms XOOM 4G LTE update even for rooted tablets

After concerns that rooting the Motorola XOOM would leave owners of the tablet ineligible for Verizon's 4G LTE upgrade later in the year, the manufacturer has stepped in to reassure would-be buyers that they can hack their toys and still get high-speed access. According to the official Motorola support forums, the company promises that XOOM slates that have had "the original factory software reinstalled" and have been "relocked" will be updated as normal, while it will "attempt to complete the upgrade" on those returned rooted.
