For now we have no script to make it on the phone without wipe but I'm very happy that it's working.
1. Wipe phone twice (2x make Wipe Data/Cache in stock recovery)
2. Flash 4.5.1-134 DFP-231 CN or 4.5.1-134 DFP-231 Retail.en.EU CEE (It doesn't matter what version of this two You flash but it must be the same with version from point 4).
3. Wipe again (Data/Factory Reset)
4. Flash rooted SBF 4.5.1-134 DFP-231 CN Rooted SBF Part.1, 4.5.1-134 DFP-231 CN Rooted SBF Part.2 or 4.5.1-134 DFP-231 Retail.en.EU CEE Rooted SBF

Old Post to let everyone know what we worked here.
I couldn't find any thread about rooting it and only few posts under roms threads so maybe we can start here. I was making backup of rooted DFP-231 en.EU but after this by mistake I restored 2.3.5 DFP-125 and I needed to reflash my Defy with full sbf of DFP-231 cause to make OTA I had to upgrade to BL7 so any chance to restore my backup is root full sbf DFP-231. I was trying: Root Tools: - (XT800+)ROOT_MOTO_2.3.6 - Defy_2.3.6Root - DooMLoRD_v4_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su - DROID 3 easy root script v7 - ME525 2.3.6 Root - ROOT_MOTO_2.3.6 - root4defy134 - SuperOneClickv2.3.3-ShortFuse - ZOC_FlashMasterV1.70 - unlockroot23-eng - Motofail for Droid 4 and Razr - SuperOneClick with new Exploit motofail hangs on 5th step Downgrade to: Every verion MB525, MB526, ME525, ME525+ starting from early versions of Eclair ending on DFP-2311 but only DFP-188 and DFP-231/DFP-2311 has BL7 and on all other verion phone is dead. I was trying also modding sbf files by myself and few from Walter79 on DFP-188 thread and trying to force reflash under stock recovery but unfortunately still no luck and every time I had bootloader error or just dead phone. From last few days I'm monitoring all German, Chinese, Spain and Russian forums about rooting this but still even no clue. Only thing I learn is that every tool for root has problems with writing su app to phone so I think script to make it is wrong but I'm new in android and I have no idea how to edit it. I tried superuser under Ubuntu 11.04 also but I couldn't mount phone so another fail. I'm screwed with BL7 so if someone have some ideas I'm opened for most options.
