This is a method to root Atrix 2 running on Android GB(2.3.6) / ICS(4.0.4).


EDIT: Last updated on 26th July 2012

WHAT WORKS: Everything including the setting inside superuser which was not working in superuser 3.1

If you use this MOD, then please click on thanks button below.

I have updated this method to latest version of superuser 3.1.3 and su binary 3.1.1 for better compatibility with various Apps.

By following the below instructions you will be rooted in no time. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Features added in superuser 3.1.3:
1.Temp unroot
2. Ota survival
3. Outdated binary Notification

Method:

1. Enable "USB debugging" in your phone settings

2. Download the attachment Named "Motofail Root (superuser 3.1.3, su binary 3.1.1).zip" to root Android GB(2.3.6)
or Attachment named "ICS_root(superuser 3.1.3 and su binary 3.1.1) .zip" to root Android ICS (4.0.4).

3. Uninstall your old Motorola drivers from PC and install these new drivers.

4. Connect your phone with original USB cable that came with your phone.

5. To root Android GB(2.3.6) click on "Click-To-Root.bat" in the attachment folder or
To root Android ICS(4.0.4) click on "Root.bat" in the attachment folder

6.Your phone will reboot 2-3 times don't remove the USB cable during this process

NOTE: If you are unable to Root even after following the above MOD then perform a Factory restore after OTA update and retry.

Please be aware that other A2 users have had issues with Superuser versions higher than 3.0.3.

I haven't been having problems, but I always have been using the older motofail exploit then updating the binary from within the app.

I had the issue the other day, on stock 2.3.6, I also saw that alterdlikeness had a similar issue as well. It was updating past the 3.03 on both su and Superuser.

I had issues on my A2 with 3.1 only, and it would just FC and not work. I had to remove and basically re-root, and leave it at 3.0.1.

I don't know about other variants but it is working on ATT ROM and I have also assisted the same method to one user in India on androidcentral who was on MEART ROM and it even worked for him.

You missed the point I was trying to make to those wanting to update thier binaries for su and superuser.... not new root exploits.

I just want everyone to know there are issues with 3.1... however today an update to 3.1.2 today has been proven to work for those having the issues that both alteredlikness and I have seen with FCs.
