    I just bought a bionic and tried to root it tonight only notice there's a problem

    When i connected to my pc, my pc didn't reconize the bionic but it'll still charge it

    In settings i checked if i have the debug mode on which it is so i just don't get why my pc did recognize the bionic

    The phone is stock on 5.5.886
    I can't seem to update it yet also

    Thanx in advance for any help

    Try hitting the USB icon on your phone when plugged in and change it to USB Mass Storage, sounds like your in charge only mode.

    Edit: Actually if your trying to root I remember hearing people saying putting into PC mode or whatever worked for them, didn't have a problem with that though.

    Might Also be a USB cable issue. There have been issues raised before with some aftermarket cables charging, but not allowing data transfer.

    I'd run USB scrub then reboot your computer. On this page scroll down to where "USB Scrub " is a link and download it. Run it then reboot.

    Yes, do you have the Motorola drivers installed?

    You'll find mixed signals all over the internet on this, but in some cases only Moto cables will work. I can ALMOST guarantee you're trying this with a USB cable that you owned prior to owning the Bionic? If so, just because, try switching it out and see if it makes a difference...

    When you plug your phone into your pc a notification will be on your notification bar on your phone. You need to select that notification saying usb and change it to what your trying to do or instructions from the root developer or forum page.

    Your pc isn't recognizing your phone as a device. You can try a deferent pc to see if its your phone. if it is your phone call vzw and tell them you can't use your phone as mass storage or change usb settings on phone. There can only be 3 things wrong by what you have replied to me. Phone pc or usb. Good luck
