    issues with new phone

    Had a Droid3 since last Dec. it was rooted, safestrap, radio hack, all working fine and then boom phone froze last Sunday pulled the battery and wouldn't get past the duo core splash screen on reboot.

    Now I received a new phone today Android version 2.3.4 system ver. 5.7.906 now safestrap forecloses when I try to install and after my radio hack was applied it connects to my network but browser won't navigate.

    Anyone have any suggestions??

    This thread may be out of date, but to those helpless souls who've wandered back to the last page - HOPE DOES EXIST!

    I have been rooting my phone and breaking things and getting new ones and rerooting for years now, and moto has gotten pretty tricky with their bootloaders, and what we the consumers need to keep in mind is that our phones arent necessarily supposed to do this.

    That being said, my new rule of thumb (after FINALLY gaining root this time) is to always treat your phone like youve never rooted it before - computer too.

    This means - uninstall and reinstall moto drivers
    delete and redownload and unzip the currently working root tool (@ this time its motofail or zergrush {doomlord} that can both be found on xda or through a google search)
    use a usb port on the back of your computer
    restart phone and computer directly before trying to root

    I was getting failure after failure while i did all these things again and again, and my problem was this -

    INSTALL YOUR ROOT TOOL TO A FOLDER PLACED ON THE DESKTOP

    I dont know why, but when i had it placed on or two subfolders down it seemed to fail every time, and as a last resort i redownloaded and unzipped the file into a different directory (unwittingly) and WALA! worked perfectly.


    I was on stock .906
