The Motorola XOOM may be one of the most powerful Android tablets on the market today thanks to its 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, high resolution display, and Android 3.0 operating system. But Motorola bizarrely shipped the tablet with an SD card slot that doesn’t actually recognize SD cards. As luck would have it, a group of third party developers have released a custom software kernel for the tablet which enables the SD card slot.
The Tiamat kernel is pretty impressive, considering third party hackers without access to the Google Android 3.0 source code managed to release the software before Motorola got around to releasing an official SD card patch for the tablet.
Note that flashing a custom kernel can be a risky process, so if you don’t have any experience flashing custom software on an Android device you should probably proceed with caution or wait for an official patch. But the process is relatively simple if you have the Android SDK installed on your computer.
