    Moved thread from guides to hacking help and added a question mark to avoid confusion.

    Root for 621

    Curious if anyone has heard if this has been rooted yet I've Googled it and it seems to be huge problem for those of us who updated. If not is there a way to sneak a non factory rom onto it

    Nope I've been going crazy checking all the major forums everyday and haven't seen anything. And no unless we get root there's no way to put custom roms on here also I've heard this update blocks the use of a custom recovery such as rom manager.

    I often wonder what they stand to gain when about 100% of those who want superuser are not ever going to subscribe or use VZW bloat. What's it serve to lock a legacy phone down? I think it's just a moto agreement with carriers that's outdated.

    Custom recoveries still do work on .621, you have to have retained root, there is a couple methods, usually the voodoo OTA rootkeeper. There are people @Rootz flashing CM9 over .621. Scary thought, wouldn't want to do it myself, if you brick you lose root for good until an exploit is discovered.

    FYI even if you had root prior to .621 and took OTA without voodoo you may be able to regain root. There's been scattered reports over @Rootz of this occuring. Takes some ADB work and either using z4 or Pete's Root Tools, no real concensus. But regardless you had to have had root prior to .621 and can't have SBF'd once on .621 (people regaining root are using Pete's/z4 to temp root (which apparently works) and then moving and chmod their SU and binaries. But you have to have the su and binaries already existant for this to work. The OTA doesn't remove them, it just breaks their linkages.)

    Unhappy

    Uh, will there be an announcement for a 4.5.621 DX OTA phone? I lost root from 3.3.3 like a dummy, trying an OTA thinking it would fix my backup assistant PIN. Clockwork mod installed, started phone somehow by accident and got into green screen with a 3 month old backup. Dam, I want it. But CW mod does not show in app drawer, can access it from market, installed. No root perms to do anything, Titanium does not work. This sucks. I actually have a nice CW Mod backup but since update, cannot get into that boot green screen. Not sure I remember how I did it, think I held Vol Dn and power, but this does not work. Got into some primitive boot manager, all black with few lines of simple white text, but do not know what it is.

    Will you guys announce any root that works on 621 please? I even emailed the Linux dxroot guy and begged him to look into it. Not sure if he will, but he is pretty smart.

    Sad, tired, and grateful for all your help so far. Time for a good cry.

    Are you rooted now?
    If you use voodoo root keeper you can take it and keep root.
    Or if you have Titanium backup you can freeze updater and then wipe cache.
