    Hey guys,

    i have been trying for the past 2 days to root my Droid 3. I have Android 2.3.4, system version 5.6.890. I am using Pete's One click and I am plugged in as "charge only" and USB debugging is checked. I have exhausted all references to methods regarding the usb setups, i.e., charge only, usn mass storage, etc.

    I can get through the first two steps no problem, and then I get the first error message on the last step:
    ERROR: we have root, but couldn't push su , followed by this message: Try un-rooting first, then running root. It then runs another cycle and finishes the exact same way with : ERROR: adb could not be granted root access via local.prop method

    Try again from the start, but if the problem continues, check your version
    of Gingerbread -- hopefully you don't have a version where this exploit
    was fixed

    I tried unrooting, and then re-rooting, it always ends up the same way. Any ideas?? Thank you!

    It took me about two hours to get the "simple" one-click method to work. That pales in comparison to your two days, but it isn't necessarily a wham-bam process.

    I don't remember the specific error messages I got, but the problem had to do with the Motorola and ADB drivers. It took many uninstallations, reinstallations and reboots of both my phone and computer, before the root tool was able to work with my phone.

    I'll take a look around the web for you.

    You used manual ADB? FANTASTIC! That was going to be my first response, but with all the 1-click and all-in-one methods, I was worried to suggest using the manual route. Why go stone-age when you can go Ferrari? I'm thrilled you did it the old-fashioned way!

    Dear friends, unfortunately I too have the same problem. I can not root for the Motorola Droid 3 Verizon, I tried in every way, putting in Debug mode, only in charge, and unknown applications enabled, I downloaded various applications including: Motorola One Click, Petes Motorola Root, and other Motofail 2 I do not remember the name. The problem is the same as listed by his evilmeeko: ERROR: adb could not be Granted root access via local.prop method

    Can you help me??
    I write from Italy and I use a translator. I purchased a Motorola Dorid 3 in Atlanta (U.S.), I really love this kind of smartphones, as well as Motorola. I hope you understand, thank dancedroid

    only MOTOFAIL Root “Droid 4” by Dan Rosenberg will work
    watch this video


    make sure you Right-click on the motofail_windows.zip file, extract the files to a folder on your PC, and run the "run.bat" file from that folder; it will work fine.
