    Can we use this?

    Hey guys, I just found this article over at Android Central. Apparently, the Atrix has been rooted, running stock 2.3.4, with a locked bootloader... I was just wondering if an interested dev might find this method useful in the quest to achieve D3 greatness!

    Yeah I am sure they are looking into it. Seems to be the most likely option to me as they seem similar....but I have no idea

    You're not helping.
    Of course not, and neither do extra threads asking when we will get root, if we are already rooted, who's working on root, etc. It has all been asked to death, and anyone actively checking here or the other forums will know it in a minute. I'm as excited as anyone else to get rid of the bloatware and have some custom ROM goodness.

    So let's all send our best wishes/coding skills/extra dollars to woodyman, the entire DroidConcepts team, p3droid, and any other devs working on it for us.

    Agreed...without a proper recovery, attempting this could be a death sentence for devices. I just wanted to put the knowledge out there for any interested devs to play with, but I'm pretty sure most of them knew about the Atrix exploit already...

    Won't work. It was designed (like Gingerbreak) for 2.3.3 I believe. I tried both, along with z4 and super 1-click, and nothing worked. It's because a hole in the code was patched (I think), between the two versions, making it markedly harder to crack the bootloader. I think it's all part of a growing industry desire to regain strict control over data usage...someone will find a way around it though, and devs will be back to cooking ROMs in no time! :-)

    one reason they don't work is they are looking for a UID that doesn't exist. The code in Gingerbreak is set to seek UID 0.....D3 has a 5 digit ID.
