    Default Re: Root Motorola Photon 4G without the HD Dock.

    Having trouble re rooting. The update message kept popping up, then I hit the wrong button and started the update. So far not succesful in re rooting. I tried MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe., everything ran fine and said I was rooted. But I ran Root Checker and it tels me that I am not rooted. Will keep trying.

    What most of the post don't tell you:
    Make sure all drivers are loaded and working - Motorola Media link should run
    after plugging in USB cable, set the USB options to "just Charge"
    Then put the phone in "USB Debugging" Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging and check that box.

    Finally have root. I had to push the adb way through command prompt and uninstall the superuser update. That seemed to have been my problem all along...

    i've had problems with my phone since the latest update.

    I re-rooted but most apps say not rooted - but rootcheck says i'm rooted. it also says my su binary needs to be updated, but it says i don't have root!

    any suggestions on how to fix this? can i unroot and retry the root?

    That method installs SuperUser to the Systems app directory (meaning it can't easily be uninstalled, and not at all if you lose root access) and it screws up 4g.

    I *hate* to think I'm going to have to use it again so I can uninstall the system folder superuser and install it properly through the marketplace.

    My 4G works just fine after rooting with that method.

    I've been debating if I should root my photon for free tethering or (mobile hotspot) but is that a good reason to root? And also does this method of rooting without a dock legit or is there other methods? Any advice helps. Thanks.

    Default Re: Root Motorola Photon 4G without the HD Dock.

    I'm having problems with getting my Photon rooted. I tried both the manual process via ADB and also the one-click method.

    In both cases, the problem seems to be that there are two devices running, my Photon (TAxxxxxxBJC) and an emulator (emulator-5554). With the ADB method it appears that I should be able to stop the emulator device via the ADB command, but then the next time I use ADB (for example, to get a list of devices) a Daemon kicks in and restarts the emulator.

    I'm pretty sure if I can disable the emulator and keep it disabled (I notice that one of the first things the one-click method script does when it starts is to fire up the Daemon and restart the emulator) that I could complete the process and be rooted.

    Can anyone help me with how to defeat the emulator and keep it from loading during the rooting process?

    Many thanks.

    Dweil,

    Did you put your phone into charge only mode before you started the one click root?

    I was able to recreate your problem doing the root with out charge only mode enabled.

    Once I changed to charge only mode it rooted like a champ.

    I followed this videos instructions..

    Herk,

    I'm pretty sure I was in charge only mode, as that is normally my default. I'm on the road, but I'll check again when I get back home next week.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Great help guys! Either the process is getting easier or I'm getting better at this because I got it on the first try and it took me 1/10 of the time to root this as it did my Optimus

    So I have rooted my MoPho in an attempt to get some tethering going (which I am still working through). But other than tethering, help me understand what I can do now that I'm rooted?
