***NOTE: Proceed at your own risk. I and the providers of this code (see below) are not responsible for anything you do to your phone! Also, I would advise against removing any bloatware until we have a working recovery or sbf file.***
Setup: - Install adb () and Motorola drivers () - Download attached archive - Extract to a directory, I used c:\Droid2Root - Make sure you have USB degugging enabled - Change connection to PC Mode
Process: - Open command prompt - cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is - adb devices (to verify the connection) - cd c:/Droid2Root - adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk - adb push su /sdcard/su - adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox - adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin - adb shell - cd data/local/tmp - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
- let the process run until it returns you to c:/Droid2Root - cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is - adb devices (to verify the connection) - adb shell (you should now have a # prompt) - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system - cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk - cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su - cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox - chmod 4755 /system/bin/su - chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system - exit - exit
I'm sure there are certain steps that could be streamlined or eliminated, so please feel free to make a suggestion and I'll edit the post.
