    I'm looking for a good, (hopefully easy), way to root my Verizon Bionic XT875 running 2.3.4, build 5.5.1-84. This is my first smartphone root, as all I am familiar with was my Samsung Tab2, and an antiquated Toshiba Thrive, (junk). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Would like to get up to the newest build this phone can handle. My Tab2 is running latest build now.
    This is my first time using a forum...if you couldn't tell! :icon_ devil:

    Welcome aboard! I haven't followed the Bionic stuff lately - but there is probably a way in our Bionic sub-section...good luck!

    Thanks

    Thanks for the welcome, I know I'm late on the Bionic thing, I got a great deal on it as a second phone. It seems that all the downlodes to help me are so old that they are removed. I guess I will keep digging.

    ??

    I could not run Linux Minimal because it could not find my network interface. I have absolutely 0 Linux experience and am also a little leery of changing my network settings as I have it working flawlessly after just changing out my modem and wireless. So I'm still looking....Thanks for the help anyway and I will try to find a solution.:icon_eek:

    You run it in virtual box. Change the setting in there. The directions are very specific on what to do.
