If you, like me, forgot to use RootKeeper before you upgraded to ICS you probably started to miss root soon after upgrade.

Luckily an exploit for Linux kernels version 2.6.39 - 3.2 have been released.

So I just packaged it with some nice scripts to install su.

Instructions:
(Windows Only)
Install USB drivers http://www.motorola.com/consumers/v/...008406b00aRCRD
(All)
1. Extract the zipfile
2. Enable USB debugging
3. Run the appropriate script file
4. Install superuser from market.

Credits to Saurik who ported the exploit to Android and also for finding the correct hex values for this ROM.

Credits to Max Lee and DooMLoRD from witch I took their previous root packages and modified it.

Windows and Mac scripts are untested so please report their workingness

Not really sure if I do this correctly.
First I unzip the files; then debug on; connect phone to the pc; and finally run the "run-windows" file? Well it doesn't work...

If you are on Windows you will have to install USB drivers but for us who are not
it's simply to enable USB debugging and run the appropriate script.
After that you probably want to install superuser from market.

There is no ICS for CDMA version atm... So obviously... You cannot root something that does not exist..:)

I missed two DLL files for windows, but have now uploaded a fixed version.

Also make sure that you have the USB drivers installed and that you manually install superuser from market (this is so you can get updates, if I included the apk in the packages it would stick to that version)

I wrote some better instructions to hopefully easier it a bit.

EDIT:
For CDMA, it would work if you guys would get the rom to. Well theoretically Motorola could patch the exploit before releasing a CDMA version but I find that unlikely.
