    .902 Root Method (complete) + Safestrap. Features Th3ory Axi0m ROM

    If you follow this guide, you will have Axi0m (ICS build) AND your stock ROM installed on your DROID BIONIC which has to already have the .902 OTA update


    FIRST download Motorola drivers
    ROOT/UNROOT Droid Bionic - RootzWiki
    depending on your WINDOWS system you will either need
    32 bit Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation_5.2.0_32bit. msi
    64 bit Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation_5.2.0_64bit. msi


    SECOND download the .902 exploit
    Security Research by Dan Rosenberg
    here is the actual download link
    http://vulnfactory.org/public/motofail_windows.zip


    THIRD root your Droid Bionic
    Instructions were taken from these two websites and combined to make things easier
    How To: Root your Motorola DROID Bionic via wickedSecurity Research by Dan Rosenberg
    1. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed
    2. Download the motofail_windows.zip file from above and unzip it to your Windows PC.
    3. On your phone go into Settings>Applications>Development and check the box for USB Debugging.
    4. Plug phone into your computer and select “Charge Only” mode.
    5. Navigate to upzipped folder and execute run.bat
    6. Follow the instructions in the command window.
    7. Your phone will complete 3 steps, rebooting along the way. When it finishes, you will be rooted.
    (you may have to set your phone to charge only again after it reboots, I can't remember)


    FOURTH download the ROM you want
    I like this ROM if you're trying to get an ICS build for the bionic
    Axi0m [b] | cm9 | 4.0.3 | 2/18/2012 via DroidTh3ory
    here is the download link AXI0M IONIC ALPHA
    If you choose this ROM, also download this apk http://db.tt/Xa50f7qY
    place both files on your external SD card
    DO NOT UNZIP anything


    FIFTH install safestrap
    (this allows you to have your STOCK ROM and install any other ROM you like in a "safe" mode so you can switch back and forth)
    instructions here
    [HOW-TO] Install Safestrap and Create a Backup via guidot
    make sure you read and understand these instructions


    SIXTH install ROM
    instructions here
    [HOW-TO] Use Safestrap (backup and flash) (WIP) via guidot
    For the Axi0m ROM:
    YOU MUST BE ON THE .902 UPDATE TO RUN THIS OR YOU WILL BRICK
    NOTE: For Data go to Settings/Wireless & Networks/More/Mobile Networks/Network Mode/ Select GSM only wait till the screen flashes twice (or it says 4G SIM detected would you like to switch to LTE/CDMA) then switch to LTE/CDMA. Data will come up.

    Personal tips: (related to Axi0m ROM)

    Once the ROM has started
    Its going to ask you to try and sign into your google account
    This won't work because you're not receiving data.
    You can either connect to a WiFi network OR cancel and sign into your google account later

    To get Data working
    go to Settings/Wireless & Networks/More/Mobile Networks/Network Mode/ Select GSM only wait till the screen flashes twice (or it says 4G SIM detected would you like to switch to LTE/CDMA) then switch to LTE/CDMA. Data will come up.
    You will have to do this everytime you boot up.

    When you initially boot the rom, a loud boot noise will play
    To stop this
    "go into system/media and delete the audio file, that's the boot sound. It's the folder with bootanimation.zip in it."
    -via DroidmanDan


    I use Titanium backup, but if you choose to restore apps, make sure you proceed with caution.
    I initially restored apps and data and went thru the list carefully to make sure I wasn't going to mess with the build.
    However, I ended up deleting all the ringers and notification sounds (this build has the ICS ones and they're nice) and caused some other errors.
    When I flashed the ROM a second time, and manually installed and configured everything, its all perfect, No issues.

    When you rearrange apps, if you place on over another, it will automatically create a folder, similar to how iDevices do.


    There you go!
    Good luck!

    Help: i can't find GSM only

    I did all the steps you mentioned, when I restarted the XT875, in the mobile network settings, i only find two options: lte/cdma and cdma only, so i can't set it to GSM only. and i can't get data network back. And i dialed *#*#4636#*#*, change the network to GSM only, and now it pop the information " com.android.phone" stop run" again and again, so what can i do now?

    Battle...I was just gonna get on and type the basics of what you just NAILED in ludicrous detail! Fantastic job! You should throw this on EVERY Android and Bionic forum out there. The only thing I'm not sure of right now is the links for the downloads. The original Th3ory site is down last I checked but his DL's were also at bionic.th3oryrom.us.to.

    If I can add, there is a 902 compatable Liberty 3 Gold out there also.

    And in my opinion from using all of the aforementioned ROMs, Kin3tx with AOSP add on and Th3ory(s)cream t-pax is the bomb! Fast and stable as hell! And using all the ROMs was made so easy due to safestrap! Non-safe was just a backup of my stock rooted system and all ROMs tried out on safe side. And backed up on SD card after install and tweaking too!

    And to answer another oft seen question, the backup files can be renamed in any file viewing/editing program, just make sure you leave no spaces in the file names you pick and do not move them from the safestrap backup folder.

    hey guys, first of all, thanks for your hard work to get us root. Unfortunately, I have only a Mac and cannot use your method as written here, any suggestions or help on this? My Bionic has the latest ota and was previously rooted but now root is broken and I'm having trouble getting it back, really don't want to factory reset but if that's the only way, then so be it.Any and all help would be appreciated.
    Verizon Bionic:
    Sys ver 5.9.02 (en.US)
    Android ver 2.3.4
    Baseband version: cdma_N_04.07.00r
    webtop ver: wt_1.3.0-108_dbn-24
    kernel ver: 2.6.35.7.g83f1a47
    build #:5.5.1_84_-71-dbn

    Mac OS X Lion

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry for the late reply.
    If i were you I would reflash -- wipe data, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, format system, reflash

    DO NOT RESTORE APPS AND DATA USING ANY SORT OF BACKUP APP
    This usually causes bugs.

    Let me know how it goes

    Thanks for this guide! This worked great for me, except for number 4 because the links did not work, but I just used a different rom and got it going I have one question though, can I switch between stock rom and the rom I downloaded easily? Or do I have to wipe the data, wipe the cache, format, wipe dalvik cache, and reinstall the rom everytime I want to go back to the one I downloaded? Probably doesn't matter but the rom I downloaded is Eclipse v2.2. Thanks for your help!
