    How to Root the Motorola Droid 4 (XT894) running Android 4.0.4

    I. Before You Begin
    The procedure below will not affect the data on your device in any way, but do make a backup of important data before you proceed as a precaution.

    II. Necessary Downloads

    ICS404root.zip

    III. Rooting the Motorola Droid 4

    1. Enable USB Debugging on your device. To do this, head to Settings > Development and check the Enable USB Debugging tickbox.

    2. Connect your device to your Windows PC and change the type of connection to Windows Media Sync instead of Mass Storage.

    3. Extract the ICS404root.zip file you downloaded above to a folder on your desktop.

    4. From the extracted folder, double-click rootscript.bat to run the script.

    5. Hit Enter once you have made sure that you have enabled USB Debugging and the device is in Camera Mode.

    For anyone having trouble with the root, (can't find device, hanging at reboot, Hanging in general, etc.) you have to have the motohelper software installed. I regarded it as more Moto bloatware and didn't have it.

    noob question...

    What is the motohelper software? And where do I get it if I need it?

    Second when I connect my DROID 4 to PC it gives me three options:
    Mass storage
    Media device (MTP)
    Camera (PTP)

    I am assuming that media device is the mode I want it in but want to make sure sconce I am a noob to this.

    Doesn't mattgroff's new utility include this?
    in Maryland and Washington DC, cell phone repair is taking off. It's amazing the number of smartphones with touch screens that get dropped and crack.
