OK, I'm going to ask the question. Has anyone had a chance to try the new root method for the D3 on the 596 or 602 OTAs?
With 2nd init coming to the GB kernel, I like the idea of using a GB SBF, rooting and flashing. Less steps back to MIUI or CM7 if you need to start over.

Mod edit:
This works on GB.602 and GB.605
Download d3-1-click (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37845703/gbstuff/D3_easy_root_v7.zip)

Instructions for rooting with D3 1-click
1. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed
2. Download and unzip ‘Droid 3 easy root script v7
3. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging (check box)
4. Plug phone into computer and select “Charge Only” mode
5. Navigate to ‘Droid 3 easy root’ folder and run ‘Click to root your Droid 3.bat’
6. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.

Since the 602 we already flashed was "modified" to get root, would be better off SBFing to 340, then taking the OTA and rooting with this?

I don't know why, that's what I asked "would we better off". I don't know how the pre rooted got rooted, how much code had to be changed, whereas the OTA getting rooted doesn't "seem" like it would be as intrusive. Of course, I have no clue if it matters or not, hence the question.

I re-installed the Superuser.apk I have saved on my computer on my Droid X and it asked if I wanted to install over the old one I had on my phone cause it was rooted before, I was deodexed .596, so I got the odexed .596 so I could install the OTA .602 update. I grabbed the su.zip file but I cant install it cause I cannot boot into CWR since my Superuser will not work. Still no root permission from Superuser like it supposed to say when you have installed correctly on your device. Any ideas on what I need to do so I can have Superuser working correctly again?

From a command prompt in a folder containing superuser.apk and su, once you've followed the instructions to give adb root privileges:

Push superuser.apk /system/app
Push su /system/bin
adb shell chmod 06755 /system/app/superuser.apk
adb shell chmod 06755 /system/bin/su

Then reboot.

That should be it.

Put those two files in a folder, let's just say the platform-tools folder in the Android sdk installation folder (since adb is in there already). Open a command prompt and navigate to that folder. Then plug the phone in (with USB debugging enabled), and type those commands. You'll get a confirmation for the push commands letting you know the files transferred. You won't get one for the chmod commands - but would get an error if it didn't work.

But the one click method would just be doing the same thing (I haven't actually looked at it yet, though), so I don't know why you're having issues, to be honest.

Regular command prompt. Adb just has to be in the current folder, unless you add it to the global path variable.

You may want to google how to use adb, as there are several guides on its use out there. No need to rewrite them here.

Commands are case sensitive. So if it's spelled Superuser.apk you can't write superuser. Also directories must be done the same

I did do the d3 root method earlier 3 hours ago and it still didnt give me root or the Superuser files are not entering correctly into my phone?? I think this is happening cause I was rooted on .596 deodexed, then I installed the odexed over it and took the OTA .602 then lost my root. Thats why I tried the d3 root method, but as you know ive had no luck so far.

I would try to manually follow the directions up until the point you get a root prompt. From there you can do anything.

Or, just sbf and load the rooted .602 and call it a day.

So apparently with the one click root tool available with Droid 3, its been tested to work with Droid X OTA:
One-Click Root for Stock Gingerbread (Droid X, Droid 3, Droid X2, Cliq and Cliq 2) [From the Forums] (http://goo.gl/3BU5E)

That aside, I used to be rooted with z4 root on Froyo and loved it. Although, since running Gingerbread (since its release date), I have been pretty good without it. It's a bit sluggish at times, but for the most part, its pretty solid.

The only thing I would want to do is remove the bloatware. Although, I fear that could cause instability since Android OS will be looking for stock blur crap and other bloat.

What do you guys think?

saw that no one replied to this, this happens. when your phone goes into bootloader, turn off your phone turn it back on (reboot) and when you see the boot animation, just plug it back in. the program will pick it back up from where it stopped.

hope this helps.

o yea, just to add something, droid x modder (if i spelled that correctly) has put up a video on youtube of this process. I'm sure it won't cause too many problems with people who have rooted before cuz modder has 7-8 videos of him installing 2nd-init and gb roms and he didn't have a problem rooting with this process.

Worked great for me. I bootlooped my phone this morning trying to use the TBH app (before I saw this thread). SBF'ed back to 340, took the OTA, and rooted using this method with no problem whatsoever. In the process of restoring from Titanium right now. Sweet!

Just rooted a friend's phone that had been rooted before.
I opened the script and did it manually.
The problem arises if a phone has been rooted before because the links exist.
The exploit works but creating new links and pushing the files fail.
A new version of the script should remove all residue of a previous root.
If you do it manually with dab you can see the errors and correct as you go.

Anyway, the exploit works but the script will break on a previously rooted phone.

Ahhh, fiddlesticks! That's me :| Anyone else happy with the performance of OTA Ginger?

I was in this boat and just followed the steps from the following link which got my root back.

[ROOT] Droid 3 root instructions (One Click added for Windows/ Linux/ OSX) - Page 15 (http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?t=3714&page=15&p=77624&viewfull=1#post77624)

The steps are:

Run a command prompt as Administrator

Change to the directory where you extracted the one click method zip file.

type: adb shell
when you hit enter, the next line should end with a #
if it's $, make sure you are running the command prompt as admin, if you are then run the oneclick again and then start this over.

once you have the # prompt, enter the following commands pressing enter after each one:

mount -oremount,rw /dev/block/system /system

rm /system/bin/su

rm /system/xbin/su

then run the oneclick again.

After the process finished I was good to go again.

Thank you so much for this blitzed!!! I did exactly what you did in the instructions posted and it worked perfectly once I rebooted my phone after doing the one click method after the adb shell commands you posted. Im finally rooted again running .602 with the 13 p baseband radio. I worked on this last night for about 4 hrs and had a no go til now. I suggest everyone who had root before on there phones follow blitzed's method and you will be happy and rooted once again!!

Sent from my DROIDX using Droid X Forums

Confirmed here! Running completely stock .602 GB on my DX... I used the one-click Windows solution from the second post at [ROOT] Droid 3 root instructions (One Click added for Windows/ Linux/ OSX) (http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?t=3714). The only problem I ran into was that Titanium Backup couldn't get root because BusyBox wasn't installed. After downloading JRummy's BusyBox Installer from the market (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.jrummy.busybox.installer&feature=search_result) (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.jrummy.busybox.installer&feature=search_result) it ran just fine.

I can't believe it. After messing with my phone for hours I found the above post by blitzed and it worked great. All good to go - highly recommended if the easy root for 602 doesn't root right.

@WillMiii - once you extract the original zip file provided for the easy root, go to the folder you extracted to. In my case it is "C:\DROID 3 easy root script v7" - go there and, while holding shift key down, right click in the white space of the folder window. You should get a context menu that has a choice called "Open command window here" (assuming you are in Windows). Click that and a Dos box should appear. Follow the instructions exactly as described above.

Busybox is installed with this method, titanium backup is not but you can get that from the market after rooting, it isn't mandatory on a rooted device, just nice to back up apps.

Sent from my DROIDX using Droid X Forums

The moto drivers only need to be installed on the computer. Future OTA updates may be affected if you use root access to change file names that are part of the update. For example, when I rooted my Droid X last year, I changed a lot of the crapware file names from apk to old. The OTA Gingerbread update failed after that so I had to change the filenames back. That being said, if you plan to root anyway you should look for the updates on these forums and update using root recovery instead of OTA to ensure you don't lose root again.

Just wondering without starting another thread, after this do you need to wait until the different rom's get updated to a 602 base before you start flashing? Searching didn't seem to find anything relevant since this just came out I'm guessing?

Right, you have to flash ROMs over the proper base/kernel. Fab has an ApeX out that is based on .602.

I went through the steps provided to perform the "one click root". After the final reboot my computer said that it was successful and I should have root! Now I have a message from my AVG Virus program on the DX saying, "com.noshufou.android.su is infected". I didn't realize what this was so I clicked "fix". It then took me to the Superuser app and asked me to unistall it. Does the antivirus see Superuser as a virus or could the file actually be infected?

Quick history: I was on Darkslide 4.2, and loved it. Tired of 4-5 uncommanded reboots a day...I SBF'd to stock and took GB (.602)...knowing there wasn't a root solution. Now there is.

One-Click Root for Stock Gingerbread (Droid X, Droid 3, Droid X2, Cliq and Cliq 2) [From the Forums] (http://www.talkandroid.com/55906-one-click-root-for-stock-gingerbread-droid-x-droid-3-droid-x2-cliq-and-cliq-2-from-the-forums/)

It's done on a computer, requires you to have the right drivers, but it works.

It says for Droid 3 but definitely worked on my DX. I left USB debugging on the whole time. Verify after by looking into apps for Superuser app.

Have fun.

I sbf back to to froyo and took ota gingerbread and then downloaded necessary files and followed steps but each time I try to do this, my phone gets put into a boot load, I pull battery and it starts up fine, but cant get it to take the one click root! What am I missing? Thanks in advance!

08-27-2011, 06:45 PM
You don't do a battery pull when the bootloader screen shows, all you do is unplug the phone from the usb attached to the phone, hit the power button to turn it off, then turn it back on and you should see the normal boot process, wait for the phone to reboot back up, plug it back in the usb side of the phone and the next step runs in the one click automatically do the same thing after each reboot. After it you get to the 3rd step where it loads superuser and busybox on your phone and tell you to exit you reboot your phone(power button off) and it should have a superuser pop up when it loads. Some people have said it takes them several boots after the phone boots up for the superuser to show up, but on my droid x it did right after I rebooted when I was all finished with one click root method.

thanks for the response but the phone was stuck in bootload and would not do anything. My only choice was to pull the battery.

Well you could always enter the commands manually through ADB you would first have to have the android sdk and ADB setup on your computer. How to setup adb on a Mac http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-faq/74089-how-setting-up-adb-mac-osx-your-droid-x.html The commands are as follows



Log in to the device using &ldquo;adb shell&rdquo; and type the following commands:

mv /data/local/12m /data/local/12m.bak ln -s /data /data/local/12m

Next, physically reboot the device by pressing the power button. When it wakes up, log in using &ldquo;adb shell&rdquo; again, and type the following:

rm /data/local/12m mv /data/local/12m.bak /data/local/12m mv /data/local.prop /data/local.prop.bak echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_netmon_usb=0" > /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_netmon_ih=0" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_res_core=0" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_res_panic=0" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_all_adb=1" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_all_core=0" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_efem=0" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_bp_log=0" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_ap_mot_log=0" >> /data/local.prop
echo "ro.sys.atvc_allow_gki_log=0" >> /data/local.prop

Thero.sys.atvc_allow_all_adb property is a Motorola-specific configuration that prevents ADB from dropping its root privileges. Reboot the device one final time, and on logging in with &ldquo;adb shell&rdquo;, you should be presented with a root prompt. Enjoy!

I've been through the threads and couldn't find any mention of this. I recently rooted for the first time using the Droid 3 One Click method. I started checking out some of the guides to rooting and the common thing is that they are all based on rooting from froyo. How has this gingerbread root changed the process or the apps and roms available?

I installed the Droid X Bootstrapper and Titanium Backup and gave them SU permission. When I click "reboot recovery" on Bootstrapper it starts to reboot, the red M and then nothing. A battery pull and I'm ok. I tried sending an email to the dev through the market and it came back undeliverable. TB seems to work fine. I did a backup of all apps and files and then froze some bloat. I'm not sure that I really want to flash roms, but I can't proceed with it unless I can do a reboot recovery. Right?

Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks jwalz! Unchecking debugging did the trick, but I put the cart before the horse last night by freezing some bloat in TiB before running the backup with Bootstrapper. I should go back and defrost and run Bootstrapper again, right?

Any suggestions about Roms that will work with this new rooted GB? Not sure I'm going to try it, but I wasn't sure that I'd get this far.

I did the newest GB update (2.3.3) when it came out and lost root. i had rooted froyo and the rooted GB before that but lost it on the newest OTA update. so i tried rooting with this method a few times and all were unsuccessful. whenever it reboots its always goes into recovery mode, so i read to unplug the device and plug it back in when you see the red "M". that didnt work. also tried doing the method in this thread http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/gingerbread-development-hacking/35634-gb-602-root-start-here-links-all.html and it didn't seem to work either. any help?

Did you see the second post in the 602 root thread with the instructions for problems with the X. Try that, then follow the link above to the discussion about it over at rootzwiki

This might sound dumb but do you have to install the superuser apk? I followed this and think it worked but I dont see an SU icon.

Edit: I'm blind. Holy crap! This worked like a charm.

Sbf'd to froyo, took ota to 602, then rooted with d3 one click. Worked quickly and perfect. Then flashed apex. Love how everything is so easy these days.

It doesn't matter what version of root I have. The second I root with any version of gb, my phone starts freezing up. This is after 3 sbf's. Why is this happening?

My phone keeps freezing. It's constant battery pulls. It freezes about 2 minutes after it boots up. If I SBF and root froyo, no problems. The minute I put GB on my phone, it starts with the freezes. I've tried, stock 602, pre rooted 602, and 596 rooted. It just keeps freezing. If I don't root the phone, it works just fine? I want to bring the phone to Verizon but what do I tell them?

how did you get the stock version... was it just the ota???
if so on the ota you tried the one click root and it still froze your phone?

I sbf's took, the ota update and used the droid 3 method to root the phone. Shortly after that it started freezing again. I just don't know what to tell Verizon. Since it's been stock, it froze once on the gps.

if not... i'd try and find something that would freeze it consistently out side of something they wont like... then show them that...

Sefirosu
09-05-2011, 12:21 PM
Nope nothing else. I think I'm just going to run in there and tell them that it just freezes up here and there after it took the update and that it get hot from time to time. That I have to pull the battery out for a while for it to cool off. Sound ok?

They were very unhelpful. The guy looked online and saw that other people were having the same issue. I called tech support and they said I didn't do a factory reset. I did, but through stock recovery. They said the last time I had done one was August 16th. At that point they put me on hold and I just hung up.

I think I'm just gonna bite the bullet and go without root for a week or two and then give it a whirl again. If that doesnt help, I guess I can just save the $300 and upgrade to the bionic if it gets good reviews.

Nemo aeternamn
09-05-2011, 01:54 PM
that sucks... sounds like typical tech support from verizon... last time i tried... i confused them... and the time before that... this wasn't even a smart phone at this time... but they said do this.. or this... i told them i did both of those... plus this and this... and still nothing... he was kinda speachless for a minute or two...

here's an idea... have ya tried the 602 sbf that came out like yesterday... to see if that might help? rather then updating... so that way there is nothing left behind to break

perhaps you should try to flash a gingerbread based rom such as cyanogenmod 7 gingerbread to see if that still freezes up. if it does then your phone does not like the gingerbread kernel but if it does not then that means your phone does not like the new moto blur

I actually tried that when it first came out, the thing I don't like is the fact that it doesn't have speed dial setup. That just kills me because I use it a lot.

Thank you, HarleyDude, cw0974, droidx modder, blitzed, FLDivejunkie, the5barrons, macpro88, and the folks at rootzwiki... I am now rooted on .602 with a combination of one-click and command-line stuff. I had waited 3 months (I was on Froyo) until there was a way of rooting the OTA release -- I just didn't trust the hacked, 2-part ROM. But I have to say, other than the different colors and quicker animation, I don't notice any substantial differences between Gingerbread and Froyo. My battery life is unchanged. Phone speed is the same. Boot up is considerably slower. And wifi tether no longer works, not that I used it much (I carry a USB cable for EasyTether). But Titantium Backup still works, and that is good.

Okay what kind of computer do you have.
It sounds like all the drivers are not install

You could certainly use RE to delete stuff you dont need. If you are going to do that I would make a nandroid before you begin just in case.

Or you could just freeze the stuff you dont want.

Ok I purchased TI pro and just froze the appear. Now it is time to install a rom. Just one question what is the easiest way? Is there any really good step by step instruction? I searched and there are a lot of instructions but which do you all like best? I want to install cynagon rom..

Noob here. Just rooted my DX that had the stock 602 OTA update using this method.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4mwFTBC58c It rooted just fine, however I noticed when I'm at work in a highrise in SF it seems to lose it's location and think my phone is in Ipswich, MA. I guess I'll try to SBF back to stock 602 and then try it again. Any help would be appreciated.

Each rom has it's own set if instructions and requirements so it varies rom to rom
Your on 602 now correct? (sorry didn't read back)
If so you would go with Cm7gb which is still in the alpha stage though

root, roms and themes oh my!

one click out DROID3 1-Click Easy Root Already Released - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog (http://www.droid-life.com/2011/08/25/droid3-1-click-easy-root-already-released/)

This is super easy and works like a gem. Took about 5 mins on my pre rooted droid x. I was running the updated gb .602 i believe after the force update. Now I'm rooted and ready to run. Thanks for the link.

This worked perfectly! I had a never-before-rooted Droid X with all the OTA updates, and now I have superuser access!
