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:

http://vulnfactory.org/public/motofail2go_windows.zip

Instructions:

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.

Thumbs up
This is great! I went with the Nexus over this and got my wife the M but glad to see I can "fix" anything down the road should problems arise that can't be mitigated without root access. I knew it wouldn't be long even though people had doubts about it.

Everyone who uses this exploit should be sending djrbliss a few bucks.
It's the least we can do as users to support his consistently excellent and unique contribution to our community.
There is nobody else in the same league doing this kind of work for us.
You can't buy it for any amount of money...

As someone who didn't have a choice of locked/unlocked bootloader (company device, can't provide own equipment), I can't thank you enough. Once I get this through (can do it now) and can get home to access my paypal (currently on a share computer) I will definitely donate! I don't have a terrible need for root anymore with the way my Atrix HD performs, but things like ad-blocker, etc. are still very handy.

Thank you for this!!

Somebody asked if this works on the leak. I assume the leak refers to the jelly bean update? Because I just updated to jb last night. Regardless, this is the best news since i heard about this phone's release. Donation going to paypal when my paycheck comes. Thank you very much.

I'm on a Mac, so I tried running all the commands in the .bat file manually. Got no errors, and Superuser.apk installed properly, but when I try root checker or any other root apps, I got a message saying the device wasn't rooted. Tried clearing data/cache and doing it again, but still no dice. Is there anything I should try manually? Don't have access to a PC right now.
