You need a carrier unless you use voip over wifi.
I have another fully tested and working ROOT tool here if you want to add it:
Also installs Superuser, Titanium backup etc...
Anything for MAC users?
Yes any news on this question?
I tried this for a few hours could not get it to work I'd like to root my phone but I really have no idea what I'm doing to do so since I have never done it before
I tried to folloe directions to the t, but no avail.
I have a D-4
I tried the siggma link above
1.) first install this driver on your pc to allow comunication http://omniimpact.com/android/roms/myfishbear/tools/MotoHelper_2.1.40_Driver_5.5.0.exe
2.) turn on usb debugging in settings / developer options
3.) unzip this and use this tool http://omniimpact.com/android/roms/myfishbear/tools/razrs_edge_windows.zip
Does this new root have the ability to remove the root checker that Moto has sneaked into the boot loader?
Right now my phone when checking the boot loader says 1/1
Not sure if this has been addressed or if were just saying screw it and dealing with it.
Is the ICS tool you refer the one in your signature? is that something you install have you root a phone?
I want to root my phone to allow titanium backup to run, after which I plan to do a factory reset to get a clean slate.
I want to restore some apps, then I'm thinking I want to unroot so I can receive future OTA updates. I read post about flashing the stock
ROM back on, but that defeats my purpose of wanting to backup/restore and also receive future OTA updates. I dont have plans to use
any custom ROMs.
You can use the tool to root. I would not uninstall any system apps, just freeze. Then you can get any ota's without any problems. There are roms out there that are based on stock with the bloat stuff removed, if you want the stock experience with some of the junk out.

Duh! I just realized that this was within the Droid 4 forum. Does this tool work on the Droid Bionic? or am I out of luck.
OK, so if I do this will I be able to get JB when and if it comes out on OTA? Sorry if it has been asked but I don't want to screw up and not get JB.
you are having 1 of 2 issues.
1st you are in mass storage mode and need to switch.
2nd nd (as was the issue i had) you are using a charging cable to connect to your computer that is not allowing for data transfer. Use a diffrent cable to connect and try it if you have already confirmed you are not in mass storage.
