    I have droidbionic that was rooted gingerbread. i put it back to factory and did OTA to ICS. Now i am trying to root again. I have tried everyone's suggestions. I have latest drivers, my phone is in USB charge only. MTP is checked. I keep getting "adb is not recognized as internal or external command. I have checked and adb> moto adb composite is listed in the hardware drivers. I am using the original usb cable that the phone came with. What else should I do? Please tell me in english not tech.Thanks

    Gosh! After hours of trying to restore and re-root my D4, this thread became the cherry on the pie (since I couldn't root with another one-click method).

    Thanks once more, Orangechoochoo! :icon_ banana:

    Thanks alot for this root app. I spent an easy five hours yesterday searching, downloading and trying to run various roots for the Droid 4 running 4.0.4. I my specific system version is 6.16.217.XT894.Verizon.en.US. I must have tried installing it from four sources not including this one, at least twice each with different variables. I would like to note most other root apps are telling you to have it in USB debugging, which I did in all cases, however they were saying camera mode (PTP) while yours says media mode (MTP). I could not get any of the camera mode oriented roots to work, but this one worked right the first time if you follow the instructions and be sure to have it in media mode (MTP). This solution is not very easy to get to for some reason, but apparently it is here. I got the Droid 4 much later than the original release date, so it came with Android 4.0.4 which must not have been the way it was for most phones purchased from Verizon. However, as of today being January 13, 2013 it worked just fine. Thanks.

    Works!

    Very glad to have found this thread after a morning of failed roots. Just got my new-to-me Droid 4 running 6.16.217.xt894.verizon.en.us .

    As stated in the previous comment, others specify camera mode and crashed in reboots... yours worked on the first try in MTP.

    THANK YOU! dancedroid

    For anyone having trouble with the root, (can't find device, hanging at reboot, Hanging in general, etc.) you have to have the motohelper software installed. I regarded it as more Moto bloatware and didn't have it.

    Hi!
    I used the tool to root my Droid 4, but very often the applications won't start, there's only a blank screen.
    I have to reboot the phone even several times to start them.
    Anyone is having the same issue?

    None of the 1 click root tools work for my D4 - Files won't copy, permission denied

    *** Wouldn't you know it, after I posted this my phone went and rooted. I had used other one-clicks but this one is the one that worked razrs_edge_windows.zip

    Thanks guys!

    I do everything right but apparently none of them are able to copy the files to my phone - permission denied. I have USB debugging enabled, MTS, and have chchecked to be able to install from non-market. Have all drivers installed and the Motorola Device MGR which is able to connect via usb. Am using the motorola usb cable that came with my phone and am able to browse both my internal and external sd cards on my pc. Running Win 7 64bit. Below is an example of what happens when I run the batch file: Any help would be great, like where to and how to manually copy the files so they execute on my phone.

    Why don't you wait for your phone toupdate to Jellybean and then root it, rooting ICS at this point is pointless. Razr Blade root works to root Jellybean.

    I assume you never got around to adding the unroot feature in the ICS tool then? Just to confirm one more time, the Droid 4 Utility in the other sticky will unroot for ICS, right?
