One Click Root for Windows- Droid 3

Thanks to Framework43 for writing the one click and psouza4 for cleaning it up and making it pretty.

Instructions couldn’t be more simple:

1. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed - LINK to x64 drivers(64-bit) LINK to x86 drivers(32-bit)
2. Download and unzip ‘Droid 3 easy root script v7′ - LINK 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.

You now have a rooted Droid 3 thanks to the hard work of the following:
djrbliss – finding the exploit
framework43 – writing the one click
psouza4 – fixing and refining the one click
krazykrivda – gathering developers and making shit happen

As per P3Droid, this method should work on the following devices, as tested:
Droid 3, Droid X, Droid X2, Cliq and Cliq 2 

 

The MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe file will looks like this when opened:

WARNING for Droid 3: We do not yet have a way to return the phone back to stock(SBF). Please do not delete any system apps from your phone. Use Titanium Backup(or similar) to freeze apps or Root Explorer to rename from .apk ->.bak. Deleting apps could get you stuck being unable to accept updates. Speaking of updates, we won’t know until they come out if you can still root them, thus wait for the ‘all clear’ before you take an OTA update. 

WARNING for Droid X: Previously rooted DX owners who took an OTA update and then lost root should proceed with caution. This seems to only work flawlessly on SBF’d DX’s or fully factory stock ones(read: never been rooted). The problem is with getting Superuser installed because it is already on your phone from when you were rooted previously.

DX Owners: read this if you have trouble LINK______________________________________________________

One Click Root for Linux and OSX – Droid 3

This has only been tested on Linux thus far, but I’m told it should be good to go on OSX(also confirmed on Ubuntu 11.04)

Credit to zdooder for preparing this Linux version of One Click Root for Droid 3

Instructions should be the same as the Windows version above.

1. Download and Unzip ‘Droid3_Easy_Root_v7d’ – LINK Droid3_Easy_Root_v7d
2. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
3. Plug phone into computer and select “Charge Only” mode
4. Navigate to wherever you extracted it and run the file ‘run_to_root_your_droid3.sh’
5. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.

Your phone will now have root thanks to the following:
zdooder – writing this Linux/OSX One Click Root
djrbliss – finding the exploit
krazykrivda – gathering developers and making shit happen

As per P3Droid, this method should work on the following devices, as tested:
Droid 3, Droid X, Droid X2, Cliq and Cliq 2
