I just saw a tweet from P3Droid that this will work with all moto devices running gingerbread. Dies this mean I can and back to stock, take the update and use this to regain root?


Is there a way to unroot for phone going back to verizon? Please

Post above you just explained this. Just use the latest one click root and click the unroot option in the program.

If he is on 2.2 you should try Z4 root. Search XDA for it, that will most likely work.


I was reading on that, seems all the posts I was seeing on Z4 were almost a year old - was hoping for a more recent option. Looking at Super One Click. I did a factory data reset for him last night, we'll see how that goes - I told him if it still ticks him off we'll root the darn thing, can't make it any worse than it is.

Was hoping somebody had a good experience w/this method :)

Thank you.

EDIT: still having issues after I reset the phone, any app he DL's from the market either never loads or does an immediate FC. Sorry, not trying to hijack thread, just saying. Off to research this.

2nd EDIT: I've learned some stuff today, lol. I think what I'm going to do is apply the OTA GBread update (which I don't need to be rooted for) and then I will root the Gbread via the instructions/method in this here thread. I did not realize that I could apply the OTA GBread update even if it was not offered to my BF's phone, I thought I had to be rooted first, then apply. So, hopefully tonight I can apply, then root the phone :-) Thanks everybody. Hopefully this will fix it.

Tried this V1.06 three times now and keep getting the same error message...

SEARCHING FOR THE PHONE (connect it now if you haven't yet)... found!
Running exploit step 1 of 3 (setting up symlink)... done!
Rebooting your phone... done!
Running exploit step 2 of 3 (modifying local.prop)... done!
Rebooting your phone... done!
Running exploit step 3 of 3 (adding su, busybox, and superuser.apk)... FAIL!

ERROR: adb could not be granted root access via local.prop method

Try again from the start, but if the problem continues, check your version
of Gingerbread -- hopefully you don't have a version where this exploit
was fixed.

Any ideas?? My Droid 3 says it is running 2.3.4

I'm getting a "device not found" error. I've tried all of the usb settings and none work. Is it a permission error? Why can't it find my phone? I haven't seen any post relating to this problem.

My droid x is on 4.5.605 and my computer is a macbook pro OS X 10.6.8.

Please Help!

Hmm, maybe try the other versions? But really the only reason that step would fail is if somehow the "support files" folder didn't have the su and superuser.apk. Make sure they are there, if they aren't then redownload.

Were you previously rooted? If so, try the directions in this link

Otherwise, try the other versions in post #2. Both the one in Step #2 and Version 7(WinXP version)

Also see if they can help you over here

I know this may be a lot to ask, but can someone make a truly simplified version to doing this on a Mac. I've tried running the .sh, well, I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly...

Like... with pictures? Maybe? Please?

I miss the good old days when it was easy...

ERROR: we have root, but couldn't push su

I've tried manually installing superuser, but then I get an out of date binary error and it FCs on me. This all happened after I completely SBFd (or whatever it is now) and ran the software.

I don't have a Mac and didn't write the script, plenty of people have managed to work it. Read through the thread more.

Only thing I can recommend is just running it again. Also trying the other versions. Make sure the "support files" folder has all 6 files- namely busybox, su, and superuser.apk in it.
