    I am a bit scrambled by reading all of the other threads and apologize if this is a repost of a question. I was previously rooted and then followed one of the other links on this forum to get to 901, now I cannot get root no matter what I try. I just ran the one-click link and it says I am rooted, but I run root checker and it states I am not and Superuser is not present. What to do? Bionic is Version; 2.3.4 System: 5.9.901XT875

    Thanks and sorry again if this one is a rerun.

    I had to run the path saver 1 click program twice. First time upgraded me to 901 unrooted, second time restored my root. However, I did have to uninstall Superuser and reinstall it from the market after regaining root.

    Has anyone seen great improvement in their phone (for any reason) updating to 901? I had a data issue before the 875 update but that took care of everything. I'm not going to mess with the 901 because my phone is working excellent now. I'm just curious what the 901 was supposed to bring to the table?

    use 1 click return path to return to stock then on stock update to .886 and use this 1-click_exploit.zip to root your phone (it uses an updated way to root your phone for .886 then use that video tutorial to forever root method your file so then you can flash this file 901.zip through the droid bionic stock recovery ( hold down volume button and power button) you should maintain root if you get a cdt error use this to fix it 901.zip



    e
    dit: make sure the .901 zip file is in the internal storage not the sd card storage

    Ok I tried the one click method and received: 'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

    This message shows after each "push". Phone did not reboot. Still on 901.

    Thats odd. Maybe we're referring to different pathsavers. The one I used had forever root built in.

    For the OP, make sure you have the latest motorola drivers installed, phone set to charge only, usb debugging enable, etc.

    I believe that means you need the latest Motorola drivers for your phone installed onto your pc

    Ok. I have no idea how the drivers weren't updated, but I think that was it. I went to Motorola and downloaded and installed drivers and it seems to be pushing the files now. Thanks for everyone's help.

    It does but for some people it doesn't work so it's better to do.it manuely to insure it goes threw and there is no root for .901 so you have too too root and use forever root manuely on .886 to pass onto .901 by flashing with stock recovery that's what I did and it worked for me

    And I am back. Followed the directions to install the 593 file and received this message: E: error in/TMP/Sideload/package.zip (status 7) installation aborted

    I am stuck at the "boot" screen. States invalid CG version (CG: boot) Have tried the Fix CDT.bat with no luck.

    Any ideas?

    All I do now is turn it on and it goes straight into the Fastboot screen. I have tried numerous fixes and nothing has worked so far. In recovery mode, the 893 and 901 updates are there but won't load.
