    I've tried both methods and it won't work. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. This phone was given back to me about a month ago completely locked up. It wouldn't boot up. Tried pulling the battery numerous times. I found a thread here that said to power up and hold the home button, from there it showed the little android guy, I think it had an exclamation point or something like that. Then pressed volume up/down and I believe the bootloader screen came on with some options. Volume down to wipe data and pressed the power button, and off it went. I rebooted it and started from scratch with basically a new like phone Now I just use it around the house on WiFi. I've read the DX was designed to be unrootable but obviously someone is doing it. I just want to practice on it to see if I could do it. Just to see if I could remove factory installed useless apps. Does anyone have any solid advice on how to do it???

    because you should booted to bootloader once and recovery once to root

    edit: if magic md5 doesn't work, you may need to flash 621 sbf recovery image
    you will need
    rsd lite 5.7
    moto drivers
    dx 621 sbf file @ www.1kds.tk
    all in my list
