    I posted separate so it would be the first message any way you can rearrange so that that is closer to the top, the main reason I made the thread is because he talks you through how to get TEMP ROOT so after that there is no more instruction which is why I made the thread to provide more instruction so the average person knows what to do next in order to get a permanant root

    Just aiming to keep things uncluttered was all.

    -------------------------
    1. Head here and read thorough this once so you at least semi-understand what's going on!
    2. If you don't have ADB installed and setup, then do a quick search for a guide there are multiple out there and most are quite good. You can also set it up following the directions straight from Google, but they are a bit complicated if your not entirely sure about this stuff. Android SDK | Android Developers
    3. After that, then head HERE again and follow his instructions.
    4. At the end when you get the # symbol in ADB for root then you will need to do the following..
    5. Download the 2 attached files and save to your desktop
    6. First you need to write the system partition as RW so you can write things to it in order to get a permanent root.
    7. SO run the following command.
    8. Code:
      mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system
    9. Next copy the 2 attached files from your desktop to the perspective directories on your Droid 3
    10. For example my commands where as follows:
    Code:
    adb push '/home/woodyman/Desktop/su' /system/xbin 
    adb push '/home/woodyman/Desktop/Superuser.apk' /system/app
    ---------------------------
    This way done using linux, [Ubuntu 11.04] So commands will be a bit different with windows..

    This is just a rough quick sketch up for everyone, I will refine it and add more details tonight, I Just wanted to get it up for now so everyone had the chance if they wanted.
    Doesn't su require suid permissions to be set? 4755 to be exact?

    No thanks. LTE burns battery and 3G is fast enough to make me happy. If the phone had 4G I'd probably have it off all of the time. Also, it would make the phone bulkier.
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!

    Thumbs up

    yes ensure you do a chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su

    I now have Titanium installed and running backups. I just have to get a list of the apps I need to boot off

    I dont think 4g has been bad on every device just very taxing on some of the devices. My area will have 4g next month but I'm fine with 3g. I may replace my work BB with a Nexus or Bionic depending on what VZW will be carrying.

    For those looking to remove the bloatware. I installed bloatware freezer from the market which is on sale for 99 cents right now and used this list compiled for the DX2:
