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

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
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
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.
