Default [Q] motochopper fails to root - Atrix HD with 4.0.4

I'm trying to get root on an Atrix HD with 4.0.4 firmware installed on it. motochopper simply says

Code:
Select Code
[-] Failure.
when the pwn program in the package runs.

I've also tried the older motofail2go package in case it might work better with 4.0.4, but still failed.

Is there a particular stock firmware version I should upgrade to in order to get motochopper to work?

Is there anything in logcat I should look for as a clue to the problem? Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

For anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation, Towel Root worked great: hxxp://towelroot.com/

Hopefully there's no questionable/suspicious behavior for Towel Root like I've read regarding Kingo's rooting program.
