[CAUTION!] Make sure you know what your doing before you ROOT your phone. It is your own fault if you kill your phone.


By following this Guide you Agree with all of the above and consequences that follow
Here are some preparation before we start:

Get Motorola phone drivers for Windows from http://www.motorola.com/consumers/v/...008806b00aRCRD
Get SuperOneclick from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682
  • Install the Motorola drivers
  • in the phone go to Settings > Applications > Development
  • select USB Debugging
  • connect USB cable
  • set USB mode to "Portal & Tools" a.k.a. "PC mode"
  • run SuperOneClick
  • click Root
  • Done!





This is a sample log from SuperOneClick

Universal Androot is better. You don't need PC. just install the APK and tab the "Root" button. after 10 seconds, the phone is rooted.

and also have unroot function in case if you need to run System Update.

A fair question. Do you get a broken lock icon after, 'yes or no' after the procedure when you reboot the phone?

no, this is not the stock rooting method for the clean AOS

you'll only see that on ROMs like Nexus 1 and Nexus S, or any other phone that runs the stock AOS
