    Default [Guide] ATRIX HD Root Method


    Yes, the Holy Grail has been discovered by djrbliss.

    He has taken the time (once again) to come up with a working root method for the newest Motorola smartphones: DROID RAZR M, DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR MAXX HD, and the Atrix HD. We've heard that not only does this root method work with the shipping Ice Cream Sandwich that is on the phones, but also the Jelly Bean leak for the DROID RAZR M, which means it should work on the final Jelly Bean over-the-air update for these phones.

    The method of rooting is pretty simple:


    • First make sure you have the current Motorola USB drivers installed from .


    • Then download the file and extract it.


    • Connect your phone to the PC and click on the "run.bat" file that you extracted.


    • It is important to follow the instructions in the PC program, as it will ask you to press a button combination of the Volume UP and Power at the same time.


    • If the program gives an error saying something like "run-as: Package 'com.motorola.bug2go' is unknown", then unfortunately you will have to wipe your data and cache partitions on the phone and try again (factory reset the phone).

    *Note: If for some reason that method fails to give you root once you boot back up and open a root-friendly app, try swapping out the su and Superuser.apk files with these two and then running it again.

    I did everything it says here, but nothing. I replaced both files ("su" and "superuser.apk) and still nothing. I ensure that my phone is on USB debugging mode and have the latest Motorola drivers installed but still nothing. I have turned off my phone and PC but still nothing. Any help?

    I can get the bug report vibrate to work but root isn't installed. That is likely because the exploit has been patched.

    it doesnt work , you can get the bug report by pressing power and volume up for about 7 seconds make sure your on your lock screen seems to work for me but the root doesn't even with the other apk's . I haven't wiped data and cache yet but not sure it would help.
