    Oh well.
    Good point... I guess that because it is a Windows world that we live in, I just always assume that the root method is for windows unless otherwise specified....

    For what it's worth, this should work just fine on Linux and Mac OS as well. Just the included version of ADB is Windows only and it has a Windows batch script.

    But assuming you have ADB set up on your OS, you should be able to grab the download from the first post, extract the ZIP, pull out "busybox", "su", "Superuser.apk" and "zergRush" from the "files" directory and run the following commands from a terminal window (with all those files in your working directory):

    Code:
    adb wait-for-device
    adb shell "cd /data/local/tmp/; rm *"
    adb push zergRush /data/local/tmp/.
    adb shell "chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/zergRush"
    adb shell "./data/local/tmp/zergRush" //YOU MAY HAVE TO DISCONNECT AND RECONNECT USB AND TOGGLE USB DEBUGGING
    adb wait-for-device
    adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/.
    adb shell "chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/busybox"
    adb shell "/data/local/tmp/busybox mount -o remount,rw /system"
    adb shell "dd if=/data/local/tmp/busybox of=/system/xbin/busybox"
    adb shell "chown root.shell /system/xbin/busybox"
    adb shell "chmod 04755 /system/xbin/busybox"
    adb shell "/system/xbin/busybox --install -s /system/xbin"
    adb shell "rm -r /data/local/tmp/busybox"
    adb push su /system/bin/su
    adb shell "chown root.shell /system/bin/su"
    adb shell "chmod 06755 /system/bin/su"
    adb shell "rm /system/xbin/su"
    adb shell "ln -s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su"
    adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/.
    adb shell "cd /data/local/tmp/; rm *"
    adb reboot
    NOTICE: I have NOT tried this, and can NOT be held responsible for any damage or problems arising from this information. These commands are all just copy & pasted from the BAT in the original download.

    Sill question maybe.

    It says must have adb downloaded already in the cmd screen. Don't see this in instructions. Should I proceed. I have rooted other Motorola phone on this computer before with one click.

    It will run it once you click the runme.bat file.
