    Welcome to Droid Forums!!

    I don't know much about the Bionic but I will give it a shot. What do you mean nothing happened? Did the program run but not root your phone or did the program itself just not work?

    Does your PC normally recognize your phone if you plug it in? If not it may be a driver issue.

    When i connect it sometimes it does and as for the drivers ive downloaded so many different ones
    The biggest problem is that when i go on cmd, and type adb devices the serial number doesnt appear

    Sometimes when having these sorts of issues the best thing to do is try another PC. You would be surprised how many times that works. If it is not recognizing your device sometimes you can get away with booting up your device while it is connected. Other then than I'm not sure what else to suggest.

    Did you ever install the Motorola drivers from the Motorola website?

    I don't have it but your best bet would be to post that question in the kinetx thread. Someone there must have a mirror or can upload it for you.
