To all who have put this together: thank you.

The inevitable question is how does one get rooted on 12.15.15 and what method do you need to have rooted with as a starting point for this guide? I have an insurance replacement Droid Maxx running stock 12.7.7 and cannot remember what method I rooted with for my original (now lost) Maxx which was rooted on 12.15.15.

Thanks again.

Do this: Here is for the Newbie, someone that doesn't understand what ADT Bundle or adb means, and has never attempted the adb process of Rooting..this is the RockMyMoto exploit procedure..

Please donate to Jcase for all his labors on this Root exploit..

This is a simplified version of preparing the Windows computer, to run the exploit from start to finished, and have a Rooted XT1080M (aka) Droid Maxx..

Instructions download here >> https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B67R...p=docslist_api

Zip file download here >> https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B67R...p=docslist_api
