Exclamation MOTO CLIQ has been rooted! (confirmed) read more>>

we have now had a few users out there who have rooted their Cliq, and apparently there are a few ways of going about the process. the link below will take you to theDudes post, and im sure you will find other individuals with other methods if you search through the thread.

good luck to all who wish to root, and happy holidays to all!

As i do not have a moto cliq in my possession i would not be able to tell you if this is true or not. but to any users out there that DO have access to a Cliq, and are willing to test this. (just in case someone out there hadnt seen it)

Motorola CLIQ Rooted for Full Android Access http://bit.ly/4Y9uLs

(dont hate me, i caught this on a livesearch of android, the info was RT'd by
{@TaimurAsad} if you would like to RT it yourself, please do.)

i would like to hear if this works out. seeing as how the last moto cliq forum was closed.

Its true. I have a Cliq and I rooted it last night. There are two methods to root. One is by Demoshadow and one is by TheDudesAndroid. Both seem to be based on the same idea. They came out about the same time. TheDudesAndroid is actually a little easier to do and the files can be downloaded faster. You posted TheDudes version here. Here is Demoshadows verison just to be fair. Demoshadow's Root

Yah, its true, and apparently it will work with the Dext as well. Its STILL very raw though. And could possibly brick your phone. May be best to wait a a few days for it to be cleaned up and tested more. Still some risk with it. No flashable update.zip as of yet. Also, they are working on porting Cyanogen's Rom to the cliq and a Nexus One rom. And someone got the NexusOne boot screen running on it.

This root proccess is different from what we are used to. I actualy rooted mine last night. Spent some time following the M3 forum for awhile and it was no easy task. If we were all "genius'" here why weren't we able to do it? I'm not trying to bash but we need to work together on this and not make anyone feel inferior.

The root process is quite different - and I think that there is a lot to learn from the original thread http://modmymoto.com/forums/showthre...525915&page=35 starting ~page 35.

The method to flash a custom image was put together by Skrilax_CZ and was the crucial breakthrough for the device. TheDude got 'su' working.
