    Default Re: Root - Stock AT&T 4.5.91 (2.3.4 Gingerbread) unrooted w/ lock

    Just a note: I had to change back to the root directory before typing in:
    adb shell
    /preinstall/dosu

    Other than that it worked perfect! Thanks!

    You need to check your spelling. It is preinstall not preintall. You forgot the s in install.

    You can unroot by restoring your phone to factory settings. There should be no reason to unroot though.

    so I just go to the phone settings and hit factory reset, and I shouldn't have issue of bricking or anything.

    I tried downloading the files last night and I didn't had any luck. My Toshiba is 3 years old running on Vista. I tried using my other computer running on Windows 7 and didn't had luck either. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    I can't see any reason why not, unless your not upzipping it to the folder correctly and the command prompt isn't showing up...

    After days and hours of finding out how to put Superuser on my phone I finally did it last night!!! I'm new to this, but is there a way I can change AT&T on the upper left corner to something else or change my statusbar?

    When you plug in the phone into the USB port, pull down the notification bar, tap the USB connection notice, make sure its set to NONE.

    No, you need your phone "Carrier unlocked" also known as SIM unlock. Many cell phone stores will do this for a few bucks, or websites online can get you the code. When you put a different phone provider's SIM in and boot your phone it asks for the unlock code, if you got it from a site online that's where you'd enter it.

    Are there instructions and applicable files for rooting through a Mac. And then, for re-stating the Mobile Hotspot capabilities available before latest update.

    Thanks in advance.

    Superuser must be installed first, prior to doing all the steps?

    I am new to android, have never rooted one. I have an atrix, I got one week ago new with 2.2 froyo on it, I upgraded to 4.5.91 gingerbread. My question is do I use these instructions to root mine, or is something different because I have already upgraded once?

    Any help is appreciated

    this root method is mainly for if you did upgrade to 2.3.4. I did and it worked just fine.
