fastboot boot recovery.img
<waiting for device>
First you should follow this tutorial to install adb and fastboot shell: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/08/insta...oid-tools.html
Once done download these files:http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1356776196
I decompress in the personal folder (“/ home / tuusuario”), you copy the update.zip file to the root of your sd card.
You open a terminal, you’re going to the directory where you unzipped the files (“cd / home / tuusuario /”), the following commands and commandments, adb reboot-bootloader, this command will restart and your motorola os recovery menu appears, when this happens commandments this command in the terminal, fastboot boot recovery.img.
Os recovery menu appears with three options, you will move with the arrow keys and sound You select with the camera button, you choose the second option “Install zip from sd .. (second option) -> choose zip from sdc (seek the update.zip file) -> … choose … -> Yes – Install -> Reboot -> back “
Once you’ve rebooted and the phone will have rooteado, I hope you succeed, I would make a video. I’ve performed in ubuntu, but if you have another linux distribution is similar process in windows tambiéns and can do but I can help because I do not use, if anyone here is able and wants to make a tuto for that system and publish here to tell me.
Okey, so, rooting You have to download this : ( it contains fastboot adb recovery.img and update.zip [ I think it is the right one, becourse
i was applying a few of them at one time to save my time xd ] )
0. Copy update.zip to /sdcard/
1. You need to boot into fastboot (NOT RECOVERY, F A S T B O O T ). You can use:
fastboot boot recovery.img
It really works!! Thanks a lot, man! I've been following this thread for some months, and now I registered in this forum just to thank leos0 and to say that it really works.
For all the other n00bs (like me), this is exactly what I've done (just more step-by-step instructions to the same things leos0 described):
1. Downloaded the zip file that was attached to the post quoted above ("root_xt320.zip").
2. Extracted the "update.zip" file into the phone's SDcard folder (I did this by connecting the phone to the pc in the "mass storage mode".
3. Extracted all the other files from the "update.zip" file into a folder on my pc.
4. Connected the phone to the pc. NOT in the mass storage mode. Actually, I turned the USB debugging ON (settings -> applications -> development -> USB debugging), but I don't know if this makes any difference whatsoever.
5. Opened the command line (I'm using Windows Vista, btw): start menu -> cmd.exe.
6. In the command line, went to the folder where the previously extracted file adb.exe was.
7. typed adb reboot-bootloader
Note: I'm pretty sure the steps 5, 6 and 7 can be substituted by booting the phone with the VOL+ and VOL- buttons pressed, as leos0 described (I've already done that), so it's a matter of choice.
8. The phone booted in the fastboot mode (in the screen there was a menu for me to choose between recovery mode, reboot system and something else. I DIDN'T CHOOSE ANY OF THOSE OPTIONS, since I was already in the fastboot mode.
9. Next, I typed fastboot boot recovery.img (in the cmd, of course. NOT in the phone).
10. The phone entered this weird-looking menu just like leos0 described. Using the VOL+ and VOL- buttons to navigate and POWER to choose, I selected the second option ("Install zip from sd").
11. In the next screen, I navigated down untill I reached the "update.zip" file that was previously extracted to the sdcard folder. Pressed POWER button to select it. Then I selected "Yes - install".
12. Some installation screens appeared. After that, something else appeared, and this was not described by leos0: it was kind of a confirmation screen, but since the menu looked weird and too zoomed in, I couldn't read it properly. Anyway, it was something related to "fixing the root", or something... I had 2 options: "NO" and "YES, FIX ROOT".
13. Fearing for my life, I chose "YES, FIX ROOT", and then it said the procedure was done. I went back in the menu, and chose to reboot the phone.
14. It didn't actually reboot, though. It just turned off. I turned it on again (still connected to the pc, but I'm pretty sure that's not necessary), installed the Root Checker app from the PlayStore and BAM! I was roooot!
