Hello and welcome to RDKamikaze's official thread to Droid rooting the easy way!! I have been working hard to code for you guys the best one-click root solution for a while and now I'm finished, woot!!
The one-click root (Soup or Root) is the easiest and most user-friendly way to root anyone's Droid, especially since there is virtually no chance to brick your Droid
!!! By using the solution given by OMJ on How to Root Without RSD Lite
, I was able to base my code around his work and bring to you the easiest and fool-proof way to root your awesome Droid
Steps to Root
1. Install Motorola Drivers!!
2. First the program!! Download Soup or Root v1.8rA!!
3. Turn on USB Debugging on your Droid: Home>Menu>Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging
4. Make sure USB Storage is OFF
!! Don't turn on USB Storage when rooting, or else the root won't work!!
5. Connect your phone and then run Soup or Root
~ BEFORE DOING ANYTHING: Turn on Debugging on your Droid!!
~ Soup or Root v0.6 and v1.8rA require to have the cmd window be in focus, so don't click away while it's working until it closes!!
~ It is recommended if you know how to do a backup to do it!! I'm not responsible for anything that happens to your Droid, but I and fellow forum members will be happy to assist you if you encounter such problems
~ v2.0 BETA USERS: You no longer need to have Motorola Tools previously installed!! The installer will ask if you have it installed or not, and if not, it will install for you!!
If you enjoy my work and would love to do so (no pressure), please !! Thanks for your appreciation!!
