I'm new to android and have a question. Been a BlackBerry user for a while and haven't much thought about rooting that phone but I have been a little upset with all the bloatware on the phone that I can't get rid of.

If you root the phone does it void the warranty?
while doing this process is it possible to Brick the phone so it is unusable?

Just a couple of questions.

You'll have to check Motorola's warranty policies. I don't want to lead you astray.

It voids your warranty, but the process is pretty easy and safe. You can un-root your device if you need to take it back to the store for a refund.

It says to install Motorola drivers to your PC. However, it gave no link to download them so where should I find these? Also, it's great the Super One Click has already been applied for easy rooting

When it says "Do NOT mount your device’s SD card", should we remove the SD card before connecting the phone to our PC? This is the first time I've owned an Android and rooting, so I need to know everything I can so I don't brick the phone.

This refers to the internal storage. When you plug in your device, you'll have the option to "mount it as USB storage" to load files on it. Don't do that.

I'm also on Win7 and when I went to install .NET Framework 2.0 (64bit), the computer told me it was already part of the OS. Therefore, you should be OK to proceed with the root.

Windows 7 or Vista computers do not need additional installs.

Running Mandriva linux, and not having any luck getting the SuperOneClick working with Mono. Mono starts the program, but it never finishes successfully.

Hmm that's very odd. Hopefully some other Linux users can back you up with some support.

Rooted with no problems on windows xp using this method.

Took about 15 minutes all said and done as I had to install .net framework.

One thing the tutorial doesn't say is to re-boot your pc after installing phone drivers, not sure if it would make a difference but I wasn't taking any chances.

Does rooting your device allow you to turn on the Hot Spot feature? every time I try it says it cannot as feature is not enabled on my account? Or is there some other way without rooting?

Thanks, also a droid noob coming from iPhone 3G 2.5yrs running.

This is from XDA - ALL credit to them I am an idiot. But you do NOT have to root to get tethering.

Here is a step by step:

Menu - Settings - Wireless & NetworksMobile Networks - Access Point Names - Menu - New APN, Enter these settings:

Name: AT&T
APN: wap.cingular
Proxy: leave blank
Port: leave blank
Username:WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password:CINGULAR1
Server: leave blank
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: wireless.cingular.com
MMS Port: 80
MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC:310
MNC:410
Authentication Type: leave blank
APN Type: leave blank

Menu - Save, then select New APN (AT&T) You should see a green dot next to it, and it should be labeled under AT&T as wap.cingular. Go back to home screen and check internet connection is active. Once you verified internet is working, power off phone, then power on. Phone should still have active internet connection, if it does, you are done!

Here's the link.

Well interesting. I had tried that tether info hack earlier today and didn't see my wifi spot listed. Tried again, now I do. So I guess it is the same as a hot spot.

It is all good now.

You guys should throw support questions at the guide in the comments. There are so many forums it's hard to come back and check each one. But all of the forums have the same guide link!

In other news, the tethering hack only worked when I changed the APN type to: "default" --> type out the word with no quotes. Hope this helps you guys!

Tethering on Unlimited Plan with Atrix - xda-developers
So after AT&T merging with Cingular, re-branding to Cingular, then back to AT&T, the equipment on the network still refers to CINGULAR. Wonder if this will always be this way?

Nope. Just hook the phone back up and click the allow... button.

Default Oddity

So i have installed all the drivers and followed the instructions. I have set all the settings on the phone correctly and verified all drivers are installed correctly.

I run superoneclick and click the Shell Root button..it starts and freezes at waiting for device. Sits there forever. When you click on it, it crashes.

I have attempted this on two computers, both running Windows 7 ultimate.

Any suggestions?

Nice, simple and covers rooting exactly and is why I made it sticky.

Note to mods/guids,

You could remove the bloatware without even being rooted. Just go to applications and uninstall whatever you want.

Default Super One Click v1.6.5 unsafe?

I started to download this software, but got a warning saying the download was reported as unsafe and that the website contains viruses. ???

Can someone run a speedtest before and after rooting? I am curious to see the differences from a virgin Atrix compared to a rooted one.

Has rooting proven to be reversible? I would hate to brick my phone and not be able to restore to factory settings the first day i get it.

Is this covered by TiB?

Hey guys, hope you're enjoying your Atrix. Looks like a sweet phone, but I have one question that I'm not sure you guys can answer just yet. Has it been discovered if the Atrix has the same military lockdown on the bootloader as my Droid X has? We have been able to create several ROMs dispite the locked bootloader, but it sure would be awesome if the kernel was replaceable.

Have they gotten that far with the Atrix yet? Do they know whether or not they'll be able to replace the kernel? Or is it too early to tell?

Thanks in advance for your response.
