    I had someone else root my bionic, I do not know the method used. I wanted to apply forever root for ota updates. When I go to system updates, the screen is completely white with no text. Is this normal? I cant get to updates anyway.

    What system version are you on? If on .893 released root will allow you to do this, which will apply 4ever root.

    Ok thanks. But is it normal for the system updates page to be completely white with no text? It is gone. So I can't get to updates.

    Forever root manual method:

    Open an app such as Root Explorer from the market
    Navigate to the system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    At the top of the screen press the Mount R/W button
    Long press mount_ext3.sh
    Select copy
    Navigate to sdcard-ext
    Press paste (this will put a clean copy of this file on your sdcard in case things go badly)
    Navigate back to system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    Long press mount_ext3.sh
    Select Open in Text Editor
    Scroll to the bottom of the file
    Press the the return key on the keyboard to put a empty line
    type the following:

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk

    (note: there is a single space between chmod and 4755 and there is a single space between the 5 and the /.)

    Press save
    Press the Mount R/O button at the top of the page
    Navigate to the mount_ext3.sh file and long press it and select “view as text” in order to confirm the new lines are present in the file.
    Exit and reboot.

    Is it a must to be at fully stock before applying forever root? Also, eclipse has it in the rom. When I check the text is written in, when I flashed a blurred based rom it is gone.

    Mot ADB Interface - DROID BIONIC, ICS - Win7 x64

    Hi Can someone help me with this. I am having issues rooting my droid bionic, OS is ICS. Could you offer me some advice?

    I've download and installed at riquired files, installed drivers... It took me 2 days to figure out how to install the Mot ADB Interface; however. But even after finally getting that booger installed, the one click script still cannot access my phone to root it.
