    ok, so, my D3 WAS rooted with safestrap and liberty ROM, BEFORE verizon pushed this last update, after which verizon had to sbf my phone as i couldn't get to my computer for about a week and needed a phone not a paper weight. :( just had a quick question for the experts out here. I previously rooted with petes one click (cause im lazy :( ) and installed safestrap then liberty. i have since heard that one click doesn't work anymore because of this very update that has caused my recent problems, and furthermore that safestrap is not going to be a very used/useful/worked program anymore. wondering what i need to do to get rooted again and whats the best strapper to use. I would like to go back to liberty and will probably stay with it till they decide to no longer provide systems. thanks guys and gals. :) These are my phones particulars.

    system version: 5.7.906.XT862.Verizon.en.US

    Look for "motofail" exploit for droid 4, works like a charm to gain root on 5.7.906. It's similar to Pete's root tool, but works for the new update.

    I believe most ROMS are compatible with safestrap and are still using it in the flash instructions... using version 1.08 myself from hashcode's site.
