    Holy Cow... after days of trying various methods I finally got my Bionic rooted. with the forever root from rootwiki. Gotta love the Su status. not sure how to tell if the forever root stuck and will hold for the next OTA. The method did work on my phone with 5.5.893 (no prior root) OTB. I just can't seem to get the data from my SD card I took out from my Droid X. The apps on that SD card go back to the OG Droid days in 2009. anyway I'm happy to finally have my phone rooted again.

    I'm glad I saw this--I am re-installing my paid-for apps on my 'newish' 5.5.893 Bionic right now, was about to fire up Pete's app, I'll do the forever-root instead

    Someone please help me!
    I tried to rooting my phone using the Motorolaoneclickroot, it says my phone should be rooted but when i use titanium backup it tells me its not rooted
    then i have tried using Pete's Motorola Root Tools and i get this message
    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 don't know what to do?! someone help me
    I have gingerbread 2.3.4

    893 would be what system you are on if you look in about phone and you recieved the latest update it should say 5.5.893 if it does that is why Petes root wont work it is for the old OTA 5.5.886. You need to read up on how to root on 893 there a couple of ways to hard to explain just google it. Any more questions please ask.

    Ok, I need some help. I installed the drivers and used the first method listed here, it went through the process and it said: congratulations, you're phone is rooted. I checked the phone, no superuser.

    I then used the second method (Pete's) and right at: Running exploit step 3 of 3, it generates error: adb could not be granted root access via local.prop method
    Try again from the start, but the problem continues, check your version of Gingerbread.

    I have a Bionic and any help would be greatly appreciated.
