I think I was misled or maybe uninformed. The phone that I got from them is a XT926dev. I voided the warranty, unlocked the bootloader and nothing has really changed. All the root dependent apps say it isn't rooted.
What am I not doing that completes the root? I have root checker and it's sole requirement for root appears to be whether or not superuser and su.binary are installed in the root sectors. Can anybody lead me into the light? I'm scared of the dark.
You maybe have unlocked the Bootloader, but that does not necessary means, you are rooted.
First think on which Firmware is you XT926, is it on 4.0.4 or is it on 4.1.2
If you are on 4.0.4, read this Thread.
If you are on 4.1.2 and your bootloader really is unlocked, read this:
If you are on 4.1.2 and your phone is VERIZON xt926 and your bootloader is locked:
Try Matts Tool
to downgrade. Then do the first step i mentioned
Next time please inform yourself about the things you want to do. This should be the first thing. If you dont know the difference between an unlocked bootloader and root access, you should propably not try to mess with these kind of things.
Maybe Motorola Service Workers aren't the right people to ask about stuff like that...
But well hope i helped you out of the dark, greetz Esok
