I am attempting to root a Bionic for a friend and it is becoming more of a headache than anything. I've rooted many phones, learned the manual way with my Gnex, then upon getting a new one, choose to always use toolkits as its easier, and not really necessary to go through all the SDK set up for manual.

Anyways, im looking for a way to root. I've tried petes rootkit, and the one found here ... http://droidbionicro...torola-android/

all give me errors and fail to push the files.

Is root currently unavailable for the 4.1.2 bionic or am i missing something?

The only way to obtain root is if you had root on ICS 4.0.4. If you had none and went straight to JB OTA, you're out of luck.

I do have root on ICS 4.0.4 but can't take the OTA update. I've downloaded it 4 times with no luck. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? I used voodoo root keeper, defrosted apps, and disabled SU (as far as I know)

This is how I managed to keep root after the OTA to JB. I basically started with a stock ICS (had TiBu backups, so not much would of been lost anyway), rooted it, used rootkeeper to make a backup, flashed the OTA update in stock recovery, let it do its thing, then followed the instructions I quoted there from that point. That's how I was able to keep root through the OTA. Of course, if flashing directly with the FXZ of JB, then there is no root exploit currently. At least we hope that'll change in the near future, but we'll see soon enough.

There's a mention of a Linux-only root (had something to do with a Linux Samba share) on DroidRzr forum by DJrBliss
