    My droid bionic won't root

    I need help rooting my Droid bionic 905 2.3.4, i have tried everything that i know of. here are the problems I have run into.


    PETE’S MOTOROLA ROOT TOOLSERROR: adb could not be granted root access via local.propmethod

    Try again from thestart, but if the problem continues, check your version
    of Gingerbread --hopefully you don't have a version where this exploit
    was fixed. (doesn’teven make it past the 3rd step)

    MOTOROLA ONECLICKROOT
    Congratulations your phone should be rooted. But it’s notrooted. I checked it with Root Check Basic and it said my device is not properlyrooted plus the super user app wasn’t installed.

    Motofail: Universal Android Root Expoit
    Adb server out of date killing… along with a long failedmessage stating remount failed; Operation not permitted, failed to copybusybox, failed to copy super user, etc.

    Ok. It sounds like it may be rooted even though it doesn't say so when you check it with Root Check Basic. Here's something that you can try on your phone.
    1. Check and make sure that SuperUser is installed on your phone. It should be listed as one of the apps on your phone. If you don't see it, go to Google Play and search for SuperUser. Download the free version and install it on your phone.
    2. Once you have SuperUser on your phone, open the program on your phone. You'll see a screen come up showing all of the different updates to this program. Just select the OK button at the bottom of your screen.
    3. Exit the SuperUser program and go back into Root Check Basic and see if it tells you whether or not your phone is now rooted. It should say that your phone has now been rooted.

    I've used this procedure each time that I've had to root my phone and it has worked every time for me. Let me know how this goes for you.

    My droid bionic won't root

    ROOT CHECK BASIC:Sorry! this device does not have proper root access. it's like Verizon put a special lock on my phone or something, but i have seen other bionic owners have no problem with rooting. Anymore suggestions?

    You're using an incredibly random assortment of tools all of which don't work. Get motofail or motofail ics.

    Yeah. Can you see communication between pc and phone? It sounds like busybox never getting on the phone to start with. Triple check your usb debugging and usb mode (charge only on GB). Check unknown sources in dev under apps.

    Aha moment. Did you unzip the motofail.zip into the directory you're running the run.bat from?

    Cool My droid bionic won't root

    Since I have been trying to root I have kept Unknown Sources and Debugging checked. As far as seeing communication between pc and phone i can access my storage and the usb mode charging pops up when i plug it in so i assume it's connected. I used to see a message saying drivers are connected but I noticed you don't see that message everytime and even when i did see the message it still wouldn't root. I have 4 usb ports on my laptop and the 2 on left aren't working at the moment which i'm going throught methods trying to fix them but i have tried the 2 on the right and it still doesn't root properly. I am a fairly computer savvy person so this is really becoming fustrating. I won't quit until I figure this out, gotta get my phone rooted. Please anymore suggestions.
