    Hi! I'm Justin! I'm here on the forum with my girlfriend Kris, she just got a new Droid Bionic and was interested in doing some rooting! Soooo, here I am looking for some info! Just a few basic questions, one, she just got this phone litterally last night (christmas) so what version of android does the phone have? Does the 43v3r root work with it and what are the chances of it bricking using this method? That's pretty much her only concern, and we're honestly just Rooting to take advantage of the mobile hotspot feature. Thanks so much guys and Kris says Hi too! :]

    quick update, i took the plunge and did the 1 click exploit method, so now i have super user and yet i cant do mobile hotspot still using barnacle, open garden, anything. Any ideas how to get this going so i can hook up my kindle fire and computer?

    The latest wifi tether has the bionic profile. http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/downloads/list and 43v3r root does work, after you 43v3r root you can update to 5.5.893 for better data stability...and if u want to go from there u can update to 5.9.901.

    No need to unroot, 43v3r root involves editing a system file to retain root during updates. Which one click did you use?

    This method by dhacker has 43v3r root in the script. http://th3oryrom.com/COMPILED/R3l3AS3DRoot_Windows_V2.1.zip ..its a couple 100mb but its worth it. Also I believe this method only works on stock or the 5.5.893 update. Its best to 43v3r root after rooting on stock then update to 5.5.893 which it should ask you to update to when you check for an update on your phone. Choose option 3 on the script I provided

    alright sweet that zip you linked me worked perfect! Went with option 3 and it installed successfully, how do i check for updates to get that version you were talking about? (also is there any way to put a password on the hotspot with that hotspot app you linked me?) Thanks again for all your help!!

    Press the home button, then press the menu button, then hit settings, and scroll down and hit "about phone", then hit system updates, make sure u 43v3r rooted before hand.
