From what I've been told, don't expect root on this phone! A few reasons that keep getting mentioned: 1. The guy (Dr.Bliss) that did all the rooting of Moto phones, has stopped working on them. 2. Apparently this is why they made the dev edition. So no one needed to find the exploit. 3. Since there is a dev edition, there is NO NEED to root the regular non $600 phone!!!! That is BS if you ask me. Hopefully someone that cares about us poor folks that can't spend $600 on EVERY phone that comes out will keep trying anyway and come up with a root method.
