    if you have latest drivers, good connection , usb debugging enabled you should be good to go.. you may if you have have any security locking (pin lock or gestures) take them off i dont think it will make a difference but you never know.. what OS are you running on computer?

    Try going into the stock recovery and wiping the cache. Also, are you using a motorola branded cable? Sometimes you can have problems using other usb cables.

    Google Bionic Roms and there will be a sub heading under XDA that has "Liquid ICS" this link has the step by step process on it with all the file links needed to achieve the results that you are looking for.
    I originally had the same issues.
    If you aren't trying to do the ICS, which I must say since I installed it with the "Liquid ROM" I have never been happier.

    I mean, If it's 905 and if motofail has access to your filesystem with the proper permissions (debug and unknown sources which are in effect passwordless SU privilege accounts, like "power" on an old SCO box or "nobody" on solaris 4 if you know your historic hacks and the CERT write ups of them) your phone has no choice but to root. Older drivers (like the 893 and 902 drivers) are obsolete, they changed not too long ago, about the time the ICS leaks starting dropping. Device manager 2.2.28 is the latest motorola package (32 bit), I updated Saturday morning because I was refreshing and updating all the phone tools on my PC. I'm thinking you need to uninstall that moto end user whatever it is you've got (name and version number don't look at all right for the device manager package?) and go see if you can search moto for Device Manager 2.2.28 64 bit You might Start Here.

    To get to stock recovery, power down the phone. Then hold both the volume up and volume down keys simultaneously while powering on the phone. A boot mode selection menu will appear, and you use the volume down key to highlight Recovery, then the volume up key to select it. After a few seconds, a triangle should show up, at which point, press both volume keys again, and it should take you to the recovery menu. From the recovery menu, you use the volume up and down arrows to scroll, and the power button to select. Scroll down to wipe cache partition, and select that. After that, scroll to reboot system now, and try rooting. If that doesn't work, you may want to try a factory data reset, which will delete all of your data so try that as a last resort.
