    JP,

    Got the new phone in yesterday with the ICS update and tried to root it but have some issues with the rooting process. I did as instructed and down loading the 1.82 download and set my phone to enable usb debugging and put my phone into fastboot mode as well. I also installed the needed driver that worked with my computer (32).

    When i go to run the root installation and go into option 2 of the installatoin to root i get a error that says " 'Adb' is not recongnized as an internal or external comand, operable program or batch file". Do you happen to know what I may be doing wrong or leaving out.

    Thought this seemed pretty simple but as usual I manage to make them harder then they are. lol

    Thanks

    That error usually means the motorola drivers are outdated, not installed or not installed correctly. Inside the utility zip file there is a "drivers" folder...those are the most updated drivers. Make sure you install the right drivers, 32 bit or 64 bit...it makes a difference depending on the version of Windows on your PC. You can uninstall the existing drivers by going into "about software" in control panel and uninstalling the Motorola drivers and then install the correct drivers provided in the utility zip folder. Hope this helps.

    I didn't think of this during my last response. I'm not sure it makes a difference but, you don't have to be in AP Fastboot to run the root option. You just need to have usb debugging on and allow installation from unknown sources (menu>settings>security>unknow sources). I'm not sure if "unknown sources" needs to be enabled for root, but you'll find sooner or later to install/flash etc you'll eventually need to turn that on depending on the source of the app.
