    Can you do the same thing for me that I asked for from Reflex above? Please share the output of the commands.

    So you are right, this looks good. Can you type:
    su -

    and see if you get a root prompt?

    The command it runs to root the phone once you get as far as you did is:
    /storage/rfso/pwn 1

    You can try running that manually and see what happens.

    marty45714 THANKS! But will this script depend on the Mot ADB Interface driver? If so, it's a no go for me...I can't get my PC to recognize that driver.

    You may be in luck. I DON'T think it does. I installed VirtualBox today on a workstation WITHOUT Motorola or ADB drivers, and once it installed the USB VirtualBox driver, it worked. So I do not believe it is necessary to install any of the phone related Windows drivers.

    AWESOME! Did you mean that your .ova 'included' VirtualBox or do I have to d/l it from another source? One of your original links is dead.

    You still need to download and install VirtualBox first. Just Google "Oracle VirtualBox". It will be the first result.

    This one? VirtualBox 4.2.12 for Windows hosts ; It says x86...Will it also install and run on x64 OS? Hope I'm not breaking any rules for posting this link: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

    Ladies and gentlemen I report that we have a root...I repeat, WE HAVE A ROOT on my Droid Bionic running the new Jelly Bean OS v! And a big ol' phat THANK YOU:hail: to marty45714 for this extremely simplified script for those of us that know nothing aboutLinux.

    Here are the steps that he set forth and I followed:

    1) Install Sun VirtualBox on your Windows PC.

    2) Download the VirtualBox .ova file here:
    Root_Bionic_JB.ova

    3) Import the .ova file into VirtualBox. (Click "File" then "Import Appliance".)

    4) Start the imported VM in VirtualBox (Click the big "Start" Button. It has a green arrow icon.)

    5) Follow the instructions on the Linux console.

    That should do it. If you need help I will be monitoring this thread.

    Here's where I downloaded VirtualBox 4.2.12 for Windows hosts: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads . It says x86 but will also run on a x64 windows OS as well.

    Glad it worked, and glad I could help. Don't forget that Dan Rosenberg @djrbliss is responsible for writing this code that performs the exploit and gives us root!
