I grabbed this from the Razr M forums, it will work for a variety of new Motorola Devices.
- Install Motorola Drivers
- Enable USB Debugging on Phone
- Plug Into PC
- Charge Only Mode
- Run The Batch File "Run"
- Follow Along the CMD Prompt for Progress & Let it Finish
- Enjoy and Hope for some Developers to Pick Up This Phone to Rom
This is a one-click-method so all you have to do is the prerequisites and it will do the rest for you.
Here's the link to the drivers: Motorola Drivers
Root File is attached
to the Post, but here are some Mirrors:
Rooting your phone works whether you have the Developer version or not.
*Disclaimer: This root exploit was created by Dan Rosenberg and not myself, so I take no credit in creating it . You are only hitting "Thanks" for me sharing this root method and simple guide on the appropriate forum.*
Let me fix your post so you can see how this should look.
You dropped his paypal and never linked to his original post. This is very bad form. The person who rooted your device spent a great deal of time in doing so and deserves the recognition from doing so. not some tiny ass print at the bottom like an after thought. I mean really the creator of the root gets the tiniest font at the bottom. Terrible.
This is a proper posting FYI.
Dan (@djrbliss) has posted the root method.
Despite my strong belief that people who are interested in rooting should buy devices with unlocked bootloaders instead of expecting the magical hackers in the sky to give out free exploits (which are in short supply), I'm once again continuing to encourage bad behavior by publishing another root exploit:
1. Download and extract the entire zip file.
2. Ensure your device is connected via USB and that you have installed the latest ADB drivers from Motorola.
3. Double-click "run.bat" and FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. The exploit will ask you to press a button combination at one point.
If the exploit prints an error saying something like "run-as: Package 'com.motorola.bug2go' is unknown", then unfortunately you will have to wipe your data and cache partitions and try again.
This exploit should work on the Razr M, Atrix HD, Photon Q, Razr i (you might need to replace some of the binaries with x86 versions?), and the upcoming Razr HD.
