A huge thanks to djrbliss!

One click root for Windows in the second post

One click for Linux/OSX in third post


As per P3Droid, this method should work on the following devices, as tested:
Droid 3, Droid Bionic, Droid X, Droid X2, Droid Pro, Droid 2 Global, Cliq and Cliq 2


Old root method(the good old hard way):

Instructions for rooting: http://vulnfactory.o...ng-the-droid-3/

As promised, I have successfully rooted the Droid 3. I still have never physically touched a Droid 3 phone.

If you appreciate this work, feel free to donate HERE

Enjoy,

Lots of people worked very hard on this. Please point any discussion to this thread or to Djrbliss's site--> http://vulnfactory.o...ng-the-droid-3/


WARNING for Droid X: Previously rooted DX owners who took an OTA update and then lost root should proceed with caution. This seems to only work flawlessly on SBF'd DX's or fully factory stock ones(read: never been rooted). The problem is with getting Superuser installed because it is already on your phone from when you were rooted previously.

DX Owners: read this if you have trouble LINK

Extra advice:

Tethering: Currently Verizon has put a stop to the good old 'wifi tether' app. But all is not lost--> LINK to FREE tethering method using stock Mobile Hotspot app

Bloat removal:
My preferred method is simply grabbing Titanium Backup from the market and freezing anything you don't use or want. This is the safest method because it is fully reversible and app space is not at a premium on the D3.

Another method is here: LINK to psouza4's bloat removal script

Thanks to Framework43 for writing the early one click and psouza4 for rewriting the whole damn thing 6 times

Instructions couldn't be more simple:

The new Do-All One Click by psouza4. This version can root, unroot, restore to factory, and re-enable ADB temp root(not to be confused with temp root of the phone).
This is a link to psouza4's website

↑↑This is the latest and greatest version. Below are previous versions.

1. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed - LINK to x64 drivers(64-bit) LINK to x86 drivers(32-bit)
2. Download and unzip 'MotorolaOneClickRoot_psouza4' - LINK MotorolaOneClickRoot_psouza4
3. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
4. Plug phone into computer and select "Charge Only" mode
5. Navigate to 'MotorolaOneClickRoot_psouza4' folder and run 'MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe'
6. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.

For Windows XP users having trouble try this -> v7 .bat One Click.
The instructions are the same as the EXE version.

More help can be found here --> psouza4's website

You now have a rooted Droid 3 thanks to the hard work of the following:
djrbliss - finding the exploit
framework43 - writing the OG one click
psouza4 - rewriting the whole damn thing 100 times
krazykrivda - gathering developers and making shit happen

As per P3Droid, this method should work on the following devices, as tested:
Droid 3, Droid Bionic, Droid X, Droid X2, Droid Pro, Droid 2 Global, Cliq and Cliq 2



This kid is very excited, but he does show how easy it is(the video uses an outdated version of Windows One Click, but the directions remain the same)-->

The MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe file will looks like this when opened:

This has been tested on Linux and OSX(also confirmed on Ubuntu 11.04)

Credit to zdooder for preparing this Linux version of One Click Root for Droid 3

Instructions should be the same as the Windows version above.

1. Download and Fully Unzip 'Droid3_Easy_Root_v7d' - LINK Droid3_Easy_Root_v7d
2. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
3. Plug phone into computer and select "Charge Only" mode
4. Navigate to wherever you extracted it and run the file 'run_to_root_your_droid3.sh'
5. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.

Nope. He meant all of them except yours ;)

Yes, you could do that if you wanted.

At least for the immediate future this will work. I suggest not being the first one to take the OTA.

If anyone could provide 32 bit windows drivers that would be great. Also Mac/linux drivers(duh, linux don't need no stinking drivers). I want this to be a one stop shop.
