    Reserved for Mac procedure.
    Any update on Mac procedure? I have a macbook at home and would prefer not to mess with this via company laptop.

    edit - saw a procedure on rootwiki (http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?...8074#post98074) that I think uses these same tools...? can anyone confirm? Also is it true you cannot unroot using OS X? That could be a problem later on if true.

    Thanks!

    I'm trying to unroot and keep getting the same error on unroot step 3 of 4 (unfreezing apps)... FAIL!

    ERROR: adb could not be granted root access

    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 is fixed

    HELP!!

    Hello, this is my first post on the forum but I have followed it for a long time. I just recently bought my Bionic and have been toying w/ the idea of rooting a phone. I followed the directions above and eventually was able to Root my phone. Everything seems to be working well other then I am receiving an error. While in a text message if I hit the Menu button and then hit call I receive this pop up "The application contacts storage (process com. Motorola.contacts) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."


    It prevents me from calling that contact. I have deleted the conversations but im not sure of the next steps I should take. If anyone is able to shine some light on the topic I would be greatful. I have done some Googleing and.......Actually, I found it.


    O well I got this message all written our and I might as well use it as my hello post!

    Used Pete's Tools. Got the following error:

    "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    The System cannot find the file specified.
    got same error...

    not to mention the exe file is titled "pete's motorola root tools" (not 'oneclick')
    and the tool doesn't specify good for bionic.

    please advise

    Does rooting the bionic open up the Wireless Hotspot?

    Coming over from a rooted Dinc, do I not have to turn security off? Is there no way to do it yet or was it just a HTC thing?

    I'm new to android and I tried rooting my bionic to remove bloatware and I keep getting this error message:

    "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."

    I tried googling around and I tried some adb commands but I would get errors for unspecified file paths or incorrect win32 application.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi,
    I am totally new to smart phones and have had the Bionic for one day now. When I did the Motorolaoneclickroot AVG antivirus popped up and said SU was infected. Is this normal?

    Here is the missing info. For the newcomer, everything must be very specific. i didn't go into computers at Stanford in the 70's because I saw too many people staying up all night looking for the one missing little itty bitty piece of information preventing the dumb computer from executing. The computer only works (ie bionic), if ALLLLLLLL the steps are there (hint).


    Connect your DROID Bionic with your PC and select the Charge Only mode option when it appears. If it doesn’t come up, select it after pulling down your Notifications drawer.


    The "Notifications" box will show up on the screen after touching the four squares box in the lower left corner of the phone on the bottom bar which has four icons, the squares icon, the house or "home" icon, the counterclockwise arrow icon, and the spyglass icon. This should make it clear, painfully clear to advanced users. The "Charge Only" message only comes after touching "Notifications" if a USB plug port is plugged in. That should help people who are new to the Android phone. Good luck. It took me a couple times because certain steps were left out in explanations, but the information is all out there. I used a 64bit Win 7 system to get it up and running. I am stubborn and it eventually worked. The IPAD2 picked it up fairly quickly, but I had to power it off and power it on for the IPAD2 to pick the signal up. I hope that helps the newbie, and there's nothing to be embarrassed about becz. you are new.

    Ciao, mille grazi Corysan

    Root worked perfect fo me, now working on restoring data from my old (but trusty) DX

    Not sure if you got an answer but - The "Charge Only" option is on the phone. Hit the USB option in the pulldown menu and you should see the Charge Only option

    have you guys got this resolved.

    Do you have the right version downloaded for your OS (i.e 32bit vs. 64bit)?

    I ran it on a Win7 64bit machine and it ran fine, make sure that the "Supported_files" is extracted from the zip also, the root tools uses some libraries from that folder.

    followed instructions. only thing was when I went to install the drivers they were already installed so I just selected the repair option instead.

    ERROR: we have root, but coulnd't push Superuser.apk. Not sure why!

    this was from running pete's motorola root tools which I'm sure is the one click root program.

    Tried the 32 bit version on XP and the root process failed on step 3. Used the one-click un-root to undo what it had done and was back to normal.

    Found a 64-bit machine and used the 64-bit version on W7 and everything worked.

    I assume the phone needs to be rooted to complete the steps in the previous thread for moving apps from the syestem to sdcard folder with root explorer?
