    Need help for rooting

    I was rooted my phone last year, and after upgraded my phone, i noticed that my phone unrooted due to the upgrade.
    So I tried to re rooting my phone with variety of rooting tools such as petes or oneclickroot and so on.
    However it didnt work and it keep says that ADB file is missing to copy 'busy box' and 'super user'.
    I rly want to rooting my phone.......
    Any one can help me?
    Also, I reinstalled ADB file on my computer but still didn't work.

    If you upgraded to .906, you need to use the motofail method. Do a search for motofail_windows.zip and you should find the proper file.

    Hmm, are you running it with administrator privileges in windows? If not, try that. Also, make sure you are using a Motorola cable, sometimes that causes issues. If neither of those work, try it on another computer.

    I followed the things like debugging and charging mode, but unfortunately like above pics, it didn't work so I might do rooting with another computer.. Thanks for your reply. Hope it works on the other computer...

    based on the pic he provided it looks like his antivirus corrupted the download..
    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..
