    Well you could always just download and install what I linked - I guess you don't necessarily have to uninstall anything.

    edit: or do what alt said just above this post, that would be ideal!

    Ok I uninstalled my drivers and reinstalled them. Still not rooted... These are my drivers and my Device manager.
    MotorolaDeviceManager_2.2.28.exe

    USB COMPOSITE DEVICE
    USB MASS STORAGE DEVICE
    MOT COMPOSITE ADB INTERFACE
    MOTOROLA XT875 USB DEVICE
    MOTOROLA XT875 USB DEVICE
    Windows 7 says they are ALL READY TO USE Does this verify my drivers are up to date and compatible.

    Try this...
    • Download this file - save it to your desktop.
    • Right click on the .zip on your desktop and choose "extract all" then on the next window choose "extract"
    • This should create an "adb-windows" directory on your desktop with four files in it.
    • Once done, make sure your phone is plugged in and usb debugging is enabled (settings > applications > development > make sure usb debugging is checked) and it's set to Charge Only - not usb mass storage
    • do a shift+right-click on that adb-windows directory, and choose "open command window here"
    • In the dos prompt that opens up, type "adb kill-server" (without the quotes) - it should show nothing and move to the prompt again
    • Input "adb devices" (without quotes) - it should return "list of devices" and then below that a serial # and title of some sort. If it only returns "list of devices" with no serial # or anything else, then it's not connected. If it DOES show a serial # after "list of devices", then you should be good to go.
    • Just to play it safe, again input "adb kill-server" (without quotes) - then leave your phone plugged in and try MotoFail again.
    • And just to make sure, you want the Gingerbread version of Motofail (see here).

    Definitely correct drivers, mark that off the list. I'm so not trying to be annoying but you DID reboot the PC somewhere in there, right? After the uninstall reinstall and before the root attempt? Are you getting the same adb outdated message?

    The command line adb test is definitive. If you get a serial number yay, if not nay. If you don't get a # the first or second try switch to a different USB port. If you do happen to have an extra cable try it as well.

    I assumed you wanted me to press enter after I typed in adb kill-sever, and adb devices. I did exactly as you said and I received a serial number for a stated device. The first time it gave me a serial number, then as you said I played it safe and entered adb kill-server again it said server not connected and still wouldn't root thru Motofail saying the usual "adb killing sever" failed message. So i tried the Command Prompt again and after entering the final "adb kill-server" a long message appeared about THE ANDROID DEBUGG VERSION 1.0.26. as if it worked. So i ran run.bat from the Motofail folder and i didn't see the adb killing server start off message. i saw what looked to be my phone starting to root which said Waiting for device, Device found, "Deploying payload" but then the other failed messages started coming after that starting with cannot stat 'motofail':no such file directory Unable to chmod/data/local/motofail" No such file or directory. So it seems that we were close to rooting my phone because I have never seen the "Deploying payload" message and that's what I have been waiting to see because that's what I remember seeing on youtube when a phone is successfully rooted. What else could the problem be?

    Trust me your not annoying, I appreciate the help. i didn't reboot my computer after I uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers before i tried to root. I did get the same adb killing server message at that time. I will uninstall and reinstall again and then reboot before trying to root again. I did get the serial number when I tried the command prompt and it seems like i got a little bit closer to rooting yet it still failed( read my last reply to jntdroid and you will see what I'm talking about. I didn't see the "adb killing server" message and it almost rooted, at least it seemed that way. I have a couple of other usb cords but they aren't motorola or verizon cords.

    Count the number of files in your motofail directory. How many?
