    Grabbed Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip from Superuser
    extracted the su and superuser.apk to root of where adb.exe is.

    Some of this you can possibly cut out but I was basically just trying different things til I got it to work plus i wanted the su and superuser.apk on root of sdcard incase needed again.

    I'm on win 8 pro so I had to set it to run as admin for adb to even work.

    commands:
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs1 /dev/block/system /system

    adb push su /sdcard/
    adb push superuser.apk /sdcard/
    adb shell
    su
    cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/
    cp /sdcard/superuser.apk /system/app/


    Don't have to reboot I don't think but always best to so you don't have to set read-only on system again. check to see if you have root with root check basic or whatever app you want.

    Let me know if it works for you. I'd even consider starting a remote session and trying it if anyone would be up for it.
    I'm pretty sure that's all I had to do.

    Since I made a complaint about this earlier....
    for those who need it, to enable USB tethering you need to modify "Settings Storage" com.motorola.android.providers.settings, then settings.db, then settings
    Along with the entitlement check, change "tether_reverse_nat_enabled" from a "0" to a "1". Reboot and try usb tethering again. I know most people would rather use wifi tether but I will say that 2-3MB/sec download is tons slower than 4-5MB/sec you get with usb tether assuming your lte coverage is good enough.


    sorry, forgot to mention you'll need an sql editor to modify these settings. SQLite Editor works excellent.

    I'll have to make sure I do this when I get root back.

    I need Wifi tether to get internet access on my Nexus 7. Can't USB tether with my tablet or I would use pdanet.

    yeah but pdanet requires a program to be installed on pc and it also creates a strange network type. Wifi tether works straight out of the box with the wifi tether for root. I'd still change the entitlement check to 0 on that one though.

    If I do this to get root, will I be able to revert back to bone stock in case I need to warranty replace my phone?

    You can go back to stock but they will be able to tell it was rooted.

    This is great info and I am going to give it a run now! Thanks SOOOOO Much for posting this. You make this community that much better with your exploration and generosity. I'll let you know how it goes. Wish me luck!

    Update: I ran Command and ADB'd in. It found the Spyder, then I tried the Mount command, but it failed "Operation not permitted". How do I run Command in Admin mode>?

    Tried push su, ended with "error: device offline".

    Right click and goto properties. Somewhere should have run as admin box.
    When you enter su does it deny you?
