    Default .902 root?

    Go figure...I finally rooted the Bionic yesterday and now the new OTA .902 came out. I should root faster, seems like by the time I get around to it they always release an OTA the next day or so.

    Anyone know if it breaks root or if 1 click will work yet with the new update?

    Use one of the tools available to set up forever root. One user on rootzwiki said they kept root on 902.

    Every post on this says to get Forever Root.
    Has anyone been able to root a phone at 902 that didnt have forever root?

    I think this is the question that a lot of people will be asking.

    I had my phone rooted, and did the update. Now my phone isnt rooted.
    I really dont want to go through the problem of reverting, rooting, and upgrading.

    Any suggestions

    Have you tried any of the existing methods? If none work then you're sol and have to restore back to 893 stock, root and forever root (eg use rota893 by realbbb) and then go back up to 902.

    Eventually somebody will release a root method for. 902 none as of now though. Depends how bad you want root. I would personally. FXZ back and forever root.

    I too was having the same problem. Did the ota for 902 and lost the root. Found this over at rootzwiki:



    Just applied and it worked fine. Got my TB back up and running.

    Default never-rooted .902 root procedure

    Okay, so for a brand new never-rooted Bionic at .902 (my wife's), what is the most direct procedure to root as of right now? I'm a geek, but totally lost with all the new and old procedures floating around out there. I don't know what's obsolete or whatever.

    I understand that I'm going to need to revert to an older version (.893, I think?) first. Will I lose all email, calendar, SMS history, etc? I get the impression that the answer is yes. Is there a way to backup that stuff up and later restore?

    Then I use one of the procedures to root .893- fine I can follow those directions. Then I need to apply one of the procedures to apply forever root- fine there too. Then I upgrade to .902. I'm not sure how to force that to happen.

    Am I missing anything?

    Thanks! I'm sure I'm not the only one who will be coming here with a never-rooted .902 looking for answers.

    I too can confirm that this works. Unrooted to participate in the 902 soak test. Just got back root using this.

    So does this work only for re-rooting an already rooted phone, or will this work on a never-rooted .902?

    Just put your phone in USB Debugging mode (Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging). Then plug it up to your computer and make sure you have the latest drivers for the phone installed. Then run the run.bat file.

    This is first forum I started using when I rooted my fascinate. So I am glad I could be of help. By the way the missing 3G problem seems to be alleviated with recent update. Every time I look at the phone I seem to have 3G . Good luck to everyone.

    Default Re: .902 root?

    so i recently got the bionic, and today i decided to root. I used the motofail method. i am running .902 and i am running into some problems that i have never ran into before when rooting my phones. Whenever i try to boot into recovery nothing happens, the phone simply just restarts. also when i use rom manager to try and get to CWM i cant even reboot into recovery from there, it just restarts my phone. I have root access because i did a titanium back up before and i have superuser. I dont know if i am missing something or if there is something wrong with my phone. Please help as i would like to be able to flash some roms ..


    thank you

    I was able to root my never rooted Bionic .902 with no issues. I downloaded the Motorola drivers from the previous method and then followed this method. Thank you very much to the developer and all the members.
