Default [Q] Root Issues Motorola Photon

Hello, I'm having problems with the one click root, it goes through the steps normally but when it says "hackin yo ****" and restarts the command script says "error: phone not found"... How can I fix this error?

Its probably your drivers try reinstalling with latest. If still doesnt work , then try "Droid 3 root". Works perfectly for photon.

so I tried the droid 3 root and got this error:
"Running exploit step 3 of 3 (adding su, busybox, and superuser.apk)... FAIL!

ERROR: adb could not be granted root access via local.prop method"

Try installing ADB in your Machine 1st..
Do a Reboot after doing it..

Then enable Unknown source in your device and also USB debugging..

It worked for me flawless in the 1st try itself

Adb was already installed with Android SDK, right? Excuse my ignorance I haven't done rooting in forever and can barely remember a lot of things

Yeah it does i know I made a cmd path to get my computer to activate the bridge, I also had to go though and uninstall all my drivers and reboot and then install them again. The ones at "https:// rapidshare.com /files/1478950459/Root-Unlock-Relock.zip" i just uploaded the pack i used and QBKing77 video "How to root the Motorola Photon 4G and get Free Wifi Wireless " those set me right. just be sure to delete the spaces from the url.
