    SetCPU doesn't do anything for a dual core processor at this time.

    And root hasn't been established yet. If it's anything like the D3/Bionic was, could be weeks.

    Bionic had root a one click root from day 1 of release, IIRC.

    I am going out to Best Buy to pick up the D4 today for the wife. When the next D4 comes out I'll pick it up for myself.

    Yea but the bionic has been a long a waited device that's why i bet it had the root from day one. The droid 4 hasn't give it a few days i bet a root will be out for it. So id just wait a few days.

    I wonder if you can use the Razr root on the D4? Specs wise they are identical... minus the keyboard...

    Oh well... all in good time.

    Confirmed! No current methods work to root the D4.

    The reason the Bionic had root was because of the D3 btw.

    well wen i get it on monday ill try to root it myself using adb and see what happens. i was also told there was no root for the lg ally when it came out along with the d2g and had no problem. not using one click apps either... im very familiar with the android subsystem and all i was lookin 4 were names of current rooting apps cuz i know my older root apps are probably outdated.
