    Right click run.bat and select RUN, you should get "This application may be dependent on other compressed files in this folder. For the application to run properly it is recommended you first extract all files", select extract all, back to that same directory, now plug your phone in with USB debugging on and in charge only....Double click run.bat, wait for the dos screen to open and "press any key to root" or whatever it says, phone should reboot once or twice, wait a couple or five minutes and watch closely, you should be rooted.

    You can also kill the adb server by selecting it in windows task manager and clicking on end process. That is the best way in my opinion. Once you do that, but you should be able to root with the Motofail script. Just don't try any other commands that might invoke adb before running the script.

    you know your drivers are good, you know your adb setup is good, you know you've unzipped the exploit injector, the only thing that could be left is settings on the phone, and I'm almost 100% sure you've got those right, you should be rooted at this point

    When I right click run.bat I only see run as administrator and when I select that it just starts the motofail again and of course if failed again when i pressed any key. Still unrooted

    And you are in an administrator account on the windows box, right? I can't get "run as administrator"( supply account name and password) prompt on ANYTHING with a right click, zips, uncompressed files, running as guest, running as administrator, running as me (administrator), but I have seen it before, maybe at work where I have to run as a user, so I don't think it's strictly a win 7 thing. Anybody? Input? Is that "run as administrator" a red flag telling us we're in a limited account? Can you hack phones from a limited account on a windows box? Need to have RWX on the FAT partition you're coming from? Is that immaterial? Freakin' 'ell! I may go to alaska and live in abandoned school bus until I die from eating poison berries.

    My account is set up as the administrator, I just went to my user accounts to be sure. Though my hard drive was partitioned by geek squad when i first got my laptop.
