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



I got an OTA update this morning. System version is now 5.7.906.XT862. Kernel is 2.6.35-7-g5fa4155. Build 5.5..1_84_D3G-66_M2-10

This method no longer works for me to root the phone. I'm perfectly willing to except that I've done something wrong in the process but I'd like to hear if other folks have been able to re-obtain root after the OTA update.

Thanks.

Thanks. I didn't check back far enough figuring the OTA update was recent enough that I only had to check a couple of posts. And I'm kind of lazy in the morning.

That appears to go to a post about rooting via Windows. I'm running a Mac but I would also like to thank you for posting back to the original source which eventually got me here:

It's listed as a Droid4 utility but it says it was tested on Droid 3, Droid Bionic, Droid RAZR, and Droid 4.

Worked flawlessly. Thanks for the pointer.

Question: The superuser.apk file that is included in the tool is outdated. Can I extract the updated apk from my phone and replace it in the windows file folder so that next time I go to rooting it won't be so outdated?

Droid 2

Win7 64 on PC.
ran fine, but no root access. Here's the results:
Downloaded RootChecker.... Says I have no root access.
No Superuser app either.
Suggestions?

****************************************************************************
** **
** MOTOROLA GINGERBREAD 2.3.4 ONE-CLICK ROOT **
** **
****************************************************************************

A huge thanks to Dan Rosenberg ('djrbliss') who discovered this exploit!

This one-click root brought to you by Peter Souza ('psouza4').

This root method is known to work on the following Motorola devices:
o Motorola Cliq
o Motorola Cliq 2
o Motorola DROID 2 Global
o Motorola DROID 3
o Motorola DROID Pro
o Motorola DROID X
o Motorola DROID X2

You will need the following:
o Motorola's End User drivers for your version of Windows
o a USB cable connected between your computer and phone
o ADB.EXE and other support files that were packaged with this program

Running exploit step 1 of 3 (setting up symlink)... done!
Running exploit step 2 of 3 (modifying local.prop)... done!
Running exploit step 3 of 3 (adding su, busybox, and superuser.apk)... done!

Congratulations: your phone should now have be rooted!

Be careful what you do with this kind of access as you can ruin your phone
if you are not careful.

..... PRESS ANY KEY TO EXIT .....

I had the exact same problem with my Droid X on 2.3.4

Figures, I decide to root and there's a bug somewhere.
