    Yes I am very old school and smart phone newbie not wanting to give up on my physical keyboard yet. I'm running android version 4.1.2 and would like to root my droid 4 to update the android version to the newest one my droid 4 can handle. New to all of this so just need help or advice on how to safely do this using a pc running windows 10. Most apps I run require os version 4.4 or higher. I googled and seen many how to's but don't want to download anything unsafe to my pc. Need a trusted site
    Any help would be appreciated thanks,

    Welcome to the Forum. Hopefully someone can help. As you may have noticed we don't have many rooters or ROM'ers around here these days. Especially for a phone as old as the Droid 4. Hopefully there is someone familiar with the process that can chime in.

    Thanks, I know its an old droid version but actually new condition, I seem to suffer from fat finger and would prefer to use this one (actually have 2 droid 4) for awhile longer until I can master the no physical keyboard part. Hopefully someone will know or at least point me in the right direction. thanks again for you time.
