    A lot of the files are read only. I have 4 windows open digging into the read only folders exploring before diving in too far lol.

    I don't get why they make it so painful. I mean, the percentage of people who root has GOT to be very small, and the whole point of the Android OS is to be able to do what you want with it. If I wanted this kind of a pain, I'd get an iThing.

    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.

    Really?:angry: That is the worst news Ive heard yet today. I just picked up the RAZR M on sunday after relocating to a town that is dominated by verizon "Or so Ive been told", and was really dissapointed to see I there was no option to move Apps to the External SD card. And besides that, I was just starting to learn about building ROMS and was hoping to use my "Paid for" ROM TOOLBOX app on it.. I hope someone figures it out soon. Otherwise I may have to return it before the two weeks are up. Are there any new DROIDS better for rooting? thank you all for shareing.

    You don't have to spend $600 to get root, you can choose another phone without a locked bootloader. Don't buy a locked device and expect root and roms that is absolutely silly.

    I wouldn't necessarily expect a root within 2 weeks. I read somewhere that the person that used to come up with the methods for rooting the Motorola phones no longer has a Moto phone and won't be working on it anymore.

    Well if you already have the phone, you can't just choose another phone then can you? Unless it's within the 14 day return period, you'd have to buy another one. So if you want root right now, you need to spend the $600 on the dev edition to obtain that. What I'm saying is this: not everyone can afford to buy the dev edition of a phone just to be able to change things in it. Imagine if Moto had done this with the OG Droid/D2/DX/D3/D4/Bionic and so on. There would be no need for websites like this as no one without a dev edition phone would have root access.

    I don't think anyone EXPECTS root. But I personally don't think just because there is a dev edition of a phone available (for 3x's the price mind you) that the rest who can only afford the 'regular' edition should get left out. I wish I could be one of the guys that can spend $5k-10k a yr on phones like some do. (or have them bought for me or donated to me) But alas, I cannot. So those like me have to sit and wait patiently to see if one of the killer devs takes the time to find a root exploit for the rest of us.


    People have said that this phone is a "throw away phone" and that it's just a "hold me over" phone until the next Razr drops. Well, I think if this phones was to get root, that would be a TOTAL LIE! This is seriously a great phone. I have the Gnex and the M is my wife's, but I can say this too, if there was root already for it, I would trade my Nexus for this phone. In a heartbeat! It's small, fast and has tremendous battery life. That may sound crazy to some but it's true.

    Is the dev edition already rooted as well? I thought it just came with an unlocked bootloader.

    It comes with an unlockable bootloader. Not even the Nexus ships unlocked. All you have to do for the dev edition is fastboot OEM unlock and good to go. Then put on a custom recovery and flash an su zip. Ta da! Root!
