    Make sure you have USB Debugging Enabled, and make sure you have moto drivers.

    You have to run the program via PC.

    Also make sure you're in Charge Only mode, and if you were previously rooted, you may already have superuser on the bionic, so it may say "failed to push superuser", but still be successful at rooting.

    I already installed the drivers and checked USB debug, unkown sources checked, phone was set to charge. Also, first time ever attempting to root.

    Get the latest 5.5 moto-drivers here... USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA
    Make sure your device is in USB debugging mode, attach it to your PC.
    Then use this to root.. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/63864500/motofail_windows.zip
    Extract the entire zip file, and execute “run.bat”.

    Does "Unkown Sources" have to be on as well?
