Xoom's MicroSD Card Slot Enabled Through Custom Kernel

It’s ridiculous that the Xoom’s microSD card slot doesn’t work out of the box. I don’t understand it at all. No matter, the good ol’ XDA boys figured took it upon themselves to unlock the port. It requires a custom kernel, which in of itself requires the Xoom to be jailbroken, but the whole process is like jailbreaking any other Android device. (read: just follow the instructions) Hopefully an official update enables the device natively but Moto has so far been mum on the whole subject — which is also ridiculous. [XDA via Phandroid]
