Could you email directly and let me know the steps or even the process as to which you rooted your Motorola Defy XT? I have been looking for about a week or so now and still am stumped. Any helped would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, John

Default No luck - any other options?

Hello there -

I tried it several times and even uninstalled and reinstalled the root apk and still no go. Is there something I am not doing correctly? Thanks for any help.

Take care, John

Smile More help please

Is there a way you would be able to post/attach copies of the adb and exploit file so that I could root my phone? Hope you don't me asking.

Thanks

Default Successfully rooted defy xt555c

Ladies and Gents! I have finally found a successful root method! While it's designed for other XT models through Republic Wireless, it works flawlessly for our model as well! Replace the '@' in the following links with periods, and they will lead you to EVERYTHING you need! Good luck!

FIrst and foremost, install JDK and ADB following the instructions on this link!
www@howtogeek@com/125769/how-to-install-and-use-abd-the-android-debug-bridge-utility/

Next, follow the steps for rooting on THIS page!

You now have a successfully rooted Defy XT!

Thumbs up worked great

For Straight Talk, just follow the steps on the page above and not the single-click-root Cyanide apk.
The other link above has a guide at the bottom of the page to help you along. Couldn't get much easier.

Thanks a million!
