    Default Re: How to Root the Droid Bionic

    I would like to have the necessary files and procedure to "unroot" before I root my Bionic. Also, will battery life improve if after root I delete some apps that have services?

    I am rooted and had frozen some apps. The update downloaded but it failed. Now, I have to find out what apps were frozen because the developer of the app that froze them skipped town so I am not sure what apps were frozen. I may have to do a factory reset to get the update to work.

    MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe can also be used to unroot the Bionic.

    Droid Bionic .893 DID NOT ROOT. In step 3 of the process I got an error about permissions. Luckily I was able to do a factory reset, and the phone did not brick.
    -Bionic Users beware! I tried "MotorolaOneClick", "PetesOneClick" and the "All In One Root" from the guys over at AF and after following the instructions to the 'T' was not able to root my phone.

    I have the same problem after I applied the 5.5.893 update. It says:
    "adb could be granted root accessa via local.prop method"
    Then it says the exploit may have been closed.
    I guess I will live without root until someone figures out how to get around this.

    Does doing a hard reset actually work to remove any OTA updates?

    Hard reset? You mean factory reset? Why do you want to remove ota updates?

    Default Re: How to Root the Droid Bionic

    I see the instructions on rooting my Bionic and they seem very straight forward. There is also a statement which says "MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe can also be used to unroot the Bionic". Where do I get MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe and does it get me back to factory conditions or to the way my phone was just prior to rooting? Please give me more information. I new to Android (but not a novice to PC's or smart phones) and heve never rooted a phone so I am trying to know more about it before I proceed.

    Default Re: How to Root the Droid Bionic

    I was thinking of a factory reset to remove OTA updates, if it will remove them so I can proceed with root. I tried to root and was not able to root since the error I recieved "exploit closed", possible result from OTA updates..
    Unless someone knows of another way to root a bionic!

    Default tried to root got this 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.

    Did you have to do a factory reset for it to work? All it does when I try this post 893 is say:

    "* daemon started successfully *"

    It stops there and never goes any further.

    Guessing since 4 people have asked for help and no one has answered...that means we cannot root our bionics anymore?

    ask and ye shall receive - if you're on 5.5.893 OS, there are a couple of ways to do this -

    this, Updated and lost root? 1 click root is working

    and/or, go over to rootzwiki and do a search for ROTA893 from user realbbb. Both of them are known to work.

    If you're on a Mac, go to the rootzwiki thread "Released..." and download the latest "bionicrestorer" from CRPeck - this works as well on 893 (I can personally vouch for this one).

    So all is not lost....
