Motorola Xoom T&T

Here are some T&T for the Motorola Xoom tablet:

Powered on or off?

Here’s a simple way of telling if the Xoom is powered on or off when the display is blank:

  • plug in the charger
  • if the white charging LED is on -> device is powered off
    if no white LED indicates charging -> device is powered on

Boot up factory reset

Note: The personal data is lost during this procedure!

Disable IPv6 on Kubuntu 11.10

gebhard 2011-11-03 Uncategorized ,

Manual way (persistent till the next boot):

sudo echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6

Persistent way:

Add the kernel parameter to the sysctl.conf:

sysctl -a |grep net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6

zero: not disabled by default

set it to 1:

sudo echo net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 >> /etc/sysctl.conf
sudo sysctl -p
