Default motorola droid mini

New to the forum. Got my first smart phone yesterday. A motorola droid mini. They put kitkat on it at the verison store. I have looked but have not been able to find a root solution. i do have a PIPO M9 tablet that I use a rileyrom on. Thanks Riley. I am also a long time Debian user but not a programmer. Does a root solution exist?

Not related to the rooting the mini but I don't seam to be able to transfer files to the phone via the usb cable. Debian Jessie (testing) mounts it as a camera device. I can look at the files and copy them off the phone but not to the phone. Any ideas. Bluetooth is borked in testing.

Hi! There's no known root for moto droid mini, x, maxx... Etc ....while on 4.4.2 and bootloader locked. And Verizon won't let them be unlocked. So you're kind of stuck at the moment.

That said, ask the guys in this thread if what's being discussed will work on your model. I believe so, but ask to be sure. It may or may not work for you
...but there's no other options. For now.

I'll look into your other questions in a moment.

Yeah, I'm going to need more details on the file transfer issue. What exactly you are trying to do? What error do you get?

OK, searched around.... Debian questions are rare here. I found 2 threads that may help, or as fellow Linux users....maybe they can help if you ask there. Not specifically linked to your device....but i'm sure the issue really isn't device specific....more a Linux issue.

Good luck!! Hopefully you can get it figured out.
