My friend found the way to root OTA .629!

Make sure your phone working on .629,

1.Flash repacked .608 sbf

(Never Try Full .608 SBF !!!)


2 .Download tool PetesMotorolaRootTools or SuperOneClick extract all and run.(Just like rooting .608

Note : - FIRST - Please Enable USB Debugging , Then connect cable for usb type Charge only



3.Install app otarootkeeper(Can be found in Play Store,it's free),backup su, unroot.


4.Reboot to Motorola Recovery, Wipe, apply .629 OTA update.zip,reboot.

5.install otarootkeeper app again,restore su

Check your device, it should rooted

ATTENTION: Reapply .629 update is very important, when you flashed our repacked .608 sbf, your device is working on a unstable hybrid rom

Failed for me... First flash failed, everything else has followed that... Unable to root with SuperOneClick, reflashing with upadet.zip hasn't give any different output...
Oh, yes, Droid works, as I haven't done anything...

Rooted.

But, now my GSM network keeps failing as Airplane mode keeps checking on/off every few seconds (interesting enough, wifi still works without problems)...

Yes, no help from it... still the same problem.

UPDATE: For all with some sort of problems (!), blindly follow guide from link, for RESTORING device... apply 608, apply repacked 629, (IMPORTANT) full wipe in recovery, root, unroot, flash update, re-root. Works like a charm, all radios are full to go!
