1st method root
i have tried the 1st root method from modaco a couple of times. the root didn't work. then i just took the boot.superboot.img and copied to the \sdk\platform-tools\
folder downloaded from motorola when unlocked the bootloader. i downloaded the 64bit version, being on windows 8 64bit. opened command window in the folder above and just wrote:
fastboot boot boot.superboot.img
the phone restarted but remained in a weird mode that scared the **** out of me. pressed the power button until shutdown. pressed the power button until startup. DONE! root at last!!
