    I don't think that works, otherwise we would probably already know =]

    I wouldn't trust it. It will be all over the front page here when root is achieved.

    There aren't even any real steps to do, just download this, make sure you have that and well.....maybe if we do that the root fairy will appear!

    Well it's likely that someone will gain root access to an operating system but it won't be on the Droid 3. It'll be on your PC when you download whatever ****ware is in the link.
