    a lot of antivirus will mark motofail as a virus because of the tools it uses to root..
    I would suggest you turn off your antivirus..
    redownload motofail (you can find a new copy in my sbf thread)
    make sure usb debugging is turned on in phone settings
    when you connect your phone to computer make sure you change usb settings to charge only
    and try to root again..
    Idk y but still didn't working tho I deleted antivirus programs

    your talking about the 1click sbf not motofail
    when you use the on click sbf and you get stuck at the duual core screen that means you were not on the 906 ota but rather the 890 ota thus causing that freeze...
