How can I root my ICS Bionic? The one click method doesn't work. Thanks
you must use razrs_edge found here http://t.co/mbIAmwH8
how do I use it? I ran run.bat but I get errors i have latest drivers and USB debug. Thanks
put the phone in mtp mode when plugged in
done didn't work
What errors does it give you?
This method worked perfectly for me. Thanks
Same here as well. Also, I think I had mine plugged in in file explorer mode (or whatever it's called) and it worked. At least, I never selected anything and it worked like a charm on two different Bionics I had.
Thanks for the info!
I'm having issues to trying to root. It'll start and then stall before it even gets to rebooting. I'm getting frustrated, back when i did my Droid 1 i never had any issues. Been trying different possible fixes I've found, but still can't get it done. Made double sure I've got the latest drive from moto on my computer to.
When you go to System Settings>About Phone>Android Version
What do you see?
Gee spam again
That's the version I used when I ran the script.
You may need to run the script in an administrative prompt. You also need to make sure that USB debugging is on, that your PC is actually seeing the phone and it could even depend on what version of windows your running. I didn't even need to open a command prompt.
I know it's recognizing the phone. Both computers we have are windows 7. It would freeze at "daemon started successfully". I read a couple different walk thru's to make sure i want missing something to.
I was having the same problem. I uninstalled the motorola drivers that they have on their website and went with these slightly older drivers and it finally worked.

Well a little looking around the net and device manager isn't recognizing it. When i plug it in to the computer it shows the phone as available drives though. I also did try go back one version of the drivers.
THANKS UGLYMOUSE...YOU ARE A LIFESAVER, BUDDY OLD PAL! Follow his instructions, its very simple and I promise rooting your ICS Bionic will work. Uninstall the all the drivers for Motorola phone (Backup Assistance Plus) and reinstall the drivers uglymouse has placed under his post and use razrs_edge_windows apk again and voila! Root!!!
I have to hand it to Verizon though, they know how to keep us DROID users down but with a little patience, elbow grease and dedication anything is possible! Now if somebody could tell me where to get the tools to unlock my Bionic to another service provider i would be in heaven!
Well guys i still can't get mine rooted. The only time i can get adb interface running is of i put the phone in ap fastboot. Otherwise it won't come up. I've watched the video on rooting and other than that everything starts a it should.
Got it rooted!!! Had to do a factory reset, which i wasn't looking forward to. But if fixed the issues, and I'm now rooted. Thanks for the help. I also he me reporting back can help someone else.
