The exploit was originally used on Motorola Droid 3, and Droid BIONIC. But it seems that the ‘exploit’ can also be used on the newly released Droid RAZR. Thanks to djrblissand for discovering the exploit and for framework43/psouza4 for writing the tool so that we can root Motorola Droid Razr running Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. The news came from a blog that caters any information about Android devices and apps that is known as the Droid-Life. In their post you can see an image of a Droid RAZR that is rooted.
Listed below are the instructions that need to be done to get root access. Though the instructions seem to be easy for everybody to try, we’re advising that you should still take extra caution when performing these steps. Also please take note that you’re on your own in this endeavor and you should not blame anybody for your mistakes. Please proceed only if you know what you’re doing. Read on.
Step #3: From your Droid RAZR’s home screen, tap Menu button and enable ‘USB Debugging’ from Settings > Applications > Development.
Step #4: Connect your Droid RAZR with your PC and select Charge Only option from notifications drawer.
Step #5: Navigate to where the folder you unzipped in Step 2 to and run MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe and follow on-screen instructions to get root access to your Droid RAZR.
If you’re sure that you followed the steps correctly you should now be able to root Motorola Droid RAZR on Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread). Have a nice day!
