Default [How To] Root, Sideload & Tether Your Atrix 4G

*MOD EDIT* FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS USE OLD INSTRUCTIONS. Go check the sticky for another guide, as this method is not recommended!!!


Thanks to Getaphixx, the guy who dumped the phone, for testing this out for me! He has the worlds first rooted Atrix, CONGRATS! Thanks to Fixter for confirming on a retail model.


Thanks to briefmobile for putting together a tutorial for us!

MOD EDIT:
This is a development thread, so please help keep this thread clean. Questions like "What is the advantage of root?", "What is an encrypted bootloader", "What is a locked bootloader", SHOULD NOT be asked in this thread. Use Google or go here. Any relevant useful information will be posted in the stickies in due time after the device is released. Thanks for your continued support of the devs but let's keep things tidy for everyone else.

Thanks Designgears and youareme7 and others that assisted in this endeavor I wasn't made aware of.

It has been a refreshing experience dealing with XDA and their Devs. I only hope future contributers are lucky enough to encounter someone as genuine and intelligent as Designgears. This interwebz would be a better place for it. Look forward to getting more phones for some rooting fun with ya'll!

Also A VERY SPECIAL THANKS to those who've donated to me and others here. What may be a small token of your appreciation speaks volumes to the type of community members we have here! And receiving money is never a bad thing!

Well that was anti-climatic. lol

So what's next on your plate? Encrypted bootloader by Sunday? (I know it might not be encrypted, just making a point.)

No joke the NSA couldn't crack the boot loader.

Man it is nice to see that you're going to be active on the atrix DG, you made the captivate worth keeping as long as I have.
