    you need to extract first or turn off virus protection, redownload, and run with virus protection off

    I am trying to root my d3 that is running 2.3.4 and is a 906.

    I have read for weeks about rooting, and have experience rooting tablets in the past, but I am baffled

    Every time i run MotoFail all i get is a bunch of "access is denied" msg's in the motofail screen,
    then at the end it still says exploit successful, except is is not successful. =(

    debugging on, unknown dev on, motorola drivers installed, so is moto device manager. Do not know what is going on.

    2. make sure you right-click on the motofail_windows.zip file, extract the files to a folder on your PC, not just opening it.

    It looks like you are using Pete Souza's root method, which does not work with 5.7.906. Only Dan Rosenberg's Motofail works.

    Try restarting the computer to clear everything out of adb and make sure that you are using the Motofail for the Droid 4, which sd_shadow linked a few posts up.

    The screenshot and text that you posted that i quoted above are from Pete Souza's method, not Motofail.

    One other thing to try is to check the USB connection to the phone. If you have it set to connect the sd cards as disk drives, try setting it to charge only - or if you have it set to connect as disks, try setting it as charge only. It should work either way, but it'd be worth a try.

    Just got my other d3 in the mail this morning, going at it again all night, stay tuned if you guys are around, I will be posting my success' and failures lol Thank you for all the feedback,

    @doogald if you look further up the thread you will see that I tried motofail initially, before trying petes route, i tried using both, both failed.

    I will try all your methods once more, I am going to use a diff PC also, one that is running xp, previously I tried using win 7 64

    once rooted, I need a referral from you all as to what the best ROM to go with.

    I use Steel Droid 5.6 ICS, works well camera is a little buggy not too bad, don't think video record works maybe a work around
    many use Minimoto (gingerbread)

    no camera on any Jellybean roms, and likely never will be

    So yea I am still rocking the D3. I got everything to work and now have Super User and its allowing me to use the app that needed to be rooted, I read somewhere that you can delete the apps that verizon won't let you somehow? I did use the MotoFail thing and it worked for me, took me a few minutes but I got it.

    Day late and dollar short but I am still here! Ha!

    becareful which apps you remove, read the Droid 3: Apps That Are Safe To Remove Once Rooted
    use titanium backup pro to freeze apps, or a app like root browser to rename by adding .bak to file name, or use
    or better install a custom rom like Minimoto or Steel Droid with safestrap

    Hi, I successfully used Motofail on my Droid3. Now what? I downloaded Titanium backup and tried to run it and it said I didn't have root. That's what I thought the Motofail did. Is there a step I'm missing? Thanks for your patience and hard work on behalf of us new folks..

    Default Re: How to Root the Droid 3

    Don't remember what that error could be
    Make sure you extracted the zip file, not just opened it
    Check unziped folder for a 'motofail' file, if it is not there, your virus protection removed it
    Disable virus protection, redown motofail, unzip, run .bat file, enable virus protection.
    Another problem could be moto driver for d3
    Did you install moto drivers with the motorola drivers installer program? If not download it from my list under driver issues

    make sure that USB Debugging on phone is enabled : Go to Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging.
    try a different usb port, on some desktops the rear ones work better
    is this on a Win 8 pc?
